While waiting for the motherboard to come, so I can make the fourth part of the project, I decided to work on the cables that I’m going to need.

The first one I’m going to use is for powering the LED stripes. I needed to modify something, of course:



The cable is meant for powering and regulating 3 fans but I cut out the regulating cable and modified it as a fourth power one:



I had to apply some sanding the connectors:



And then came the best part – sleeving:



I had a SATA cable as well, so I sleeved it too:



After finishing the cables, I took some pictures of the whole structure put together:





Best Regards

I had some free time today, so I decided to make the cables connecting the motherboard to the turn on and restart buttons.

This is the result:





And assembled:



When I come to the final assembling, I will put heatshrink on the buttons and finish them.

Thanks mate.

I bought this dremel as a pack: the machine plus some other accessories. The extender was one of them.

Actually the connector that will be attached to the motherboard will be deeper between both plates and then the cables will be shorter.

During the last few days I had some time to work on the project and this time I worked on the top most part (the fourth one) and I even had time to fix it to the rest.



This time I decided not to bore you with detailed information because the process is the same, so I am just going to show you some key moments from the construction of the fourth part, which will cover the motherboard.



Of course we have aluminum plates here too.



Again, I needed some stainless steel tubes and bolts.



And this is what all parts together look like.





I am not sure if I like the top part.
What do you think? Should I keep it like this or try to make it more aggresive?

Best Regards

Today Cooler Master decided to sponsor me with the Cooler Master Excalibur R4-EXBB-20PK-R0 fan, which I intend to use for cooling the whole structure and the motherboard with all elements on it.

Thanks for the sample, Cooler Master.

Yes, they are a lot, but all of them were custom made for less than 2 hours.

The fourth level will hold the Cooler Master Excalibur cooling the motherboard plus will have some visual effects that are not made yet.


Some more new picture:

After a few weeks’ wait, the motherboard kindly given to me by the Elitegroup colleagues finally arrived! I had planned to use the Elitegroup CDC-TI at the beginning but I assume it is not yet available, so Elitegroup sent me a CDC-I. The two boards have completely different structures; however I will accept this as a challenge and am going to use this one.



The motherboard itself looks like this:



The first model I had chosen was powered directly by an adaptor but this one uses power supply, so I decided to use PICO PSU

This is the mod with mounted motherboard. Of course, this is just done for the test.








I really want to thank all of the sponsors I have so far:

Yea the effect is great, but its really hard to make the light glows the same in every mm of the acrylic plates.

Well this motherboard don't have PCIx at all. I will use the integrated video card.

Today I got some free time and since I got a different motherboard sponsored by Elitegroup I had to think of and prepare a new way to power up the motherboard. For that reason I had to sleeve a 24 pin cable.



I bought this as a regular 24 pin extender and modded it a bit by removing the 4 pin because I have 20pin pico PSU and the 4 pins will be useless.

The process:



The result:



This is for now, more updates on the way.

awesome project! and great work so far.

Really like your idea about the acrylic!

In my project I use black acrylic instead of aluminium and a clear illuminated acrylic too so I will follow your project very close.
