Do you know it it's possible to keep the harddrive rack in the bottom with the pump ontop and use the same radiator setup? But except for the 140mm it will be a 120mm.
Right know I have a 240x47mm radiator home but I might have to buy a slim to get everything in, what you do think? Will also use DDC pump with EK-DDC X-Res 100 CSQ.

It even fits with my slim 140 rad. Tried it but made no picture.
Itīs not helping as its too junky and would take too much place. As Iīm only using 2.5" drives (2x ssd, 1xhdd) it doesnt matter..

Played with my cam a bit and made some pics of my stuff..
I hope you enjoy ...

Workin 10h a day doesnīt leave much time for modding when you have a Child too, but at least a little update.
First custom Cable done, easy start with the 8 Pin CPU





Changed the Plug to a connected 4+4, as the original Asus one was just two 4 pin plugs

As I donīt wanna start the 24Pin yet (it scares the Sh*** out of me because of the double Wires and the 2 plug mess) I started playing around with an optional front



Some more details on the front chapter, last things for tonight

Sadly not much of a progress on this build, RL and work keeps me buisy, so thereīs not so much hope to get any big progress in the before march...
But some final parts came 2day.
XSPC Raystorm CPU Block and a couple bottles of DP Ulra in Blue arrived.

Little update done to the build:
I mounted the Raystorm, gladly its backplate fits like a glove and no contact to the mainboard tray.
Drilled holes in the top for the offset mounted Radiator
Added the needed Breakthoughīs for the 2 Bitspower bulkheadconnectors to got to the external radiator via Kollance VL3n with G1/4 connectors.
I also made use of a spare powe/reset Button array of a V351 which will be mounted on the backside of the case left of the psu
So I can finally ditch the original io bracket of the Prodigy in the sidepanel.
Fluidwhise the decision was done too, I got myself 3 bottles of DP-Ultra in blue
Pics to follow.

8pin + 24pin shortening and recrimping is done... My fingers still hurt


GPu Power is next. Blame me for the Boxed cooler, but as long Iīm not finished with the modifications on the case, it wonīt see water.



The front is allready de-riveted and rotated, but at it doesnīt clear enought, I need to rebuild the front complete to fit the Aquabay Res and AE5

After lots of pain swearing and other not so nice words I finally finished the replacement plug for the power switch & stuff to connect to the mainboard to be used with the buttons showed in #29 (lili V351 stuff)

After I got some crimps I could do the 2x6pin GPU power.
Came out not that bad, but I feel not the satisfaction I would like to.
When you look closer you will see where the new cables for the power switch will be routed.





Quite some space left in the case to add a waterloop..

Looks great. Very minimalistic. Can't wait for the final result.

First drafts of Custom Sidepanels.
Will be mounted on the original points were the "bars" where mounted.
No Clue how to close the big window, ether full size perspex or a mix of venting slots or only slots...

Getting hot air out of the case will be a task
Iīve really no big clue what fans I could use, so at the moment Itīs a mix out of Gentle Typhoons for the 240 Rad Blowing fresh air inside and Noisblocker 140mm Fan for the same task on the bottom mounted slim Rad.
Rear Exhaust could be a 140mm Fan (undecided) and in the front I can fit a 120mm fan to get heat out of the case.

At the moment Iīm quite lost as there is no real chance to get good silend fans ether Black or White to fit the theme AND beeing avaliable in 120 and 140mm fitment.
Equal choices would have been the new bionic Fans from Noisblocker, but therse donīt exist in 140mm fitment, and of course Corsairs Interchangeable color Ring Fans.
For 120mm they would even offer the Static Power ones for RAdiators and the Airflow ones as Exhaustfans, but sadly no Static Pressure one in 140mm fitment avaliable.
Well the Rad fan is hidden so only the rear exhaust would be visible, so nearly "corsair only" would be possible.
Anyone with a discont coupon from Corsair online ???

Final Sidebladedesign is done and went off to the lasercutter 2day, and I allready got a quote for both sidewindows. These alone will set me back for about 80€īs damn...
Will be in a color called 7C83, its Gray and light shines through, might come out quite nicely.

Some Prevew pics from the CAD proggy ...




That where the Windows...

To get the Front side done I had to think a bit but ended in a 3 Layer setup



Base Layer mounts to the Prodigy Front, and holds the Bayres and the Exhaust Fan
Middle Layer could be optional Perspex/clear acryl and could be treatenend with a led
Top layer is Cover with matching vents to the sideblade.
I could even Mesh them, well Iīll see



And a final pic of how it could look like when itīs done...

How about the Enermax Cluster fans?

Or noiseblocker eloops? Or are they only in 120mm?

And otherwise you will have to grab your spraygun
