Lian Li Pc-7HX Grafit !!! COMPLETED !!! IT IS ON !!!

Time for a small mod named Grafit.

Last week I have picked up a Lian Li PC-7HX in the local hardware store. I didn't had much choice because it had to be this one.
With this case I want to enter in the Lian Li Case Mod Competition. I know that the end of the competition is in less then 2 months. ^^

So lets start!







Fitting the 420 Rad in the front of the case.







Removed the alu that is in the way. To make room for the radiator.













By lowering the radiator in to the hole the top of the case fitted back on it.



Placed some hardware in the case to check out how much space I have left for all the rest.



I picked up some new parts from IT-Service this weekend.



Corsair fans are really well designed.



Working on this piece of plexi when this is ready I will post a new Update.

For some reason some of the pictures that needed to be in Landscape are in portrait mode. :s

Thank U Bitwacker

Update!!

Did a small mod on the heat-sinks of the MB. Because the theme color for this build will be red. I was obligated to change the color of it.

Removed the heat-sink from theMB





Filled a small cup with D-stop and placed the pieces that where colored in the cup for 10 minutes.





Cleaned the product with water. As u can see there are still some blue spots on it. These are the places where the glue was so U wont see a thing of it when the are back in place.









This way I don't have to sand the pieces and I keep the brushed effect on the parts.






The HDD case is finished to but I am not convinced by it.



Had to come up with a new idea for the HDD. Started with some plexi to create a new HDD bay.









Short movie of how u place the HDD in place

Case Mod Lian Li PC-7HX Grafit (HDD Cage) - YouTube

Did the wires already for the HDD and found a spot for the AC poweradjust 2





That was it again if the mail service do there job good I will have a very nice suprice before Xmess is here.

Cya next Time.
