Bloody Angel



start another build, this one is for me, my personal Gaming Rig

Snef's Bloody Angel


i need a real "TOWER of POWER", at beginning, Enthoo Primo white was my first choice
but i saw new case on Caselabs store, The SMA8
i sent an email to Caselabs to know the shipping rate

keep it simple

finally not so much mod, Caselabs generally don't need physical mod to achieve a good build
I saw we can order parts for any case now, i can drill some hole in mid plate and back panel


I made some test with Plasti-dip for Bloody Angel

for sure the armor of the Maximus VI Formula will be white, but i don't want to paint it permanently, i will use plasti-dip

sure its not the armor but give a great idea of the result and i like it , its pure white

i tried on my Xonar Phoebus,




Really like the result, with the custom backplate, it will be perfect
at beginning, my plan was to add the original Asus chrome and red ROG logo sticker (you still see Asus) but they will be hidden



same thing on Aquacomputer Poweradjust 5.25 bay, i like the results
i did the same ting on my Aquaero 5 XT, but still in Sand of God


now i tried to paint Angle Fittings and Crystal link C47 Fittings with regular paints
i saw the price for 90 degree female -female angle fittings and $15 each not cheap (i know this hobby is not cheap)

i tried to paint some

in next pics, some are paint and some are Bitspowers,








Not to bad, these are only test, next time, i will screw the fittings to angle before painting
i painted black angle and crystal link with 2 layer of primer and one layer of white gloss

What do you think?




received some toys









I know what I will do this week end, someone says Plasti-Dip?




want to see the results of Rad with fan on it and I like it a lot


















like the results but its not perfect like regular paint

but if I want to keep the shield intact to sell it later, its the only option available
























Out of town for a couple of weeks now and when I came back today, something waiting for me in front of the door

YESSSSSS!!!!

its Huge but I love it






the Usual pics of the Box,



















Now, I can start the build process



some pics of GPU tubing, this case is HUGE!!!! and use very little run of tubing









the 6 fittings on GPU are painted one, they are exact same as original white C47



tubing is done, i love this case, a lot of place to do any loop you want








Usual Cpu Shoot, but i want to show the Memory block, to much nickel, add little bit of white and the result is really good





i cheated on this one, use flex tubing on bottom, why not?
no one will see it



Leak test and Night shoot







i had a leak on CPU loop (back fitting on top rad) , my fault, forgot to tight it ops:

i really like these night shoot, still need to see with fan led

pretty closed to the end



Final Pics









































some night shot

I've always loved Red on White as a design colour combination and this is just gorgeous with that.
