[颖]Project conceptmod - Acrylic tubing!



Hello everyone!

I'm a long time reader but this is my second post here. My old project was dreampc and I didn't like it at all for some personal reasons and now I'm here, working in a new project but in the same case, corsair obsidian 800D. In this forum there are a lot of real artists so hope you like my project

Sponsors:

I would like to give a big thanks to Ricardo from Coldzero (www.coldzero.eu):

Coldzero will cut with laser all my designs and to ProfesionalReview (http://profesionalreview.com):


[/URL]
A spanish review web and who will give to me some surprise items

And Corsair:



Hardware:

-Intel i7 920 D0 @ 4.2 GHz

-Asus Rampage III Extreme

-2 way SLI: Point Of View GTX 480 + EVGA GTX 480

-Corsair Dominator Airflow II 6Gb (3x2048) PC3-15000(1866Mhz) - CL9

-Corsair HX850

-Seagate Barracuda 500GB

It's not really new hardware but I'm poor and can't purchase new gen. hardware and still saving money for the SSD .

Watercooling stuff:

-Ek supreme HF Full nickel + Easy Mount system (black)

-Aquacomputer Aquagrafx gtx 480 nickel:

-Ek-FB RE3 - Acetal+Nickel

-Black Ice SR1 480

-Black Ice SR1 240

-Scythe gentle typhoon 3000rpm (x2)

-Ek RAM Dominator EN nickel + acrylic.

-4x120mm Fan Radiator Shroud, Black

Purpose:
Reinvent myself!

Design:
As like the old project, I work with CAD software, mainly Autocad and a solidworks and about this last one, I know just a little bit of how to use it, but I know the enough for doing what I need .

This time, the design is going to be simple, combining the matte-black color (mainly) plus the blue color and a little of white in some little details!

An example of design type about what i'm going to do:





The main pieces are:
Motherboard Tray Plate:
This plate is a plate that covers the free zone near the motherboard and this is the design:











And I want to highlight this little plates:





Why alot of holes? because in each hole I will pass one sleeved cable so the final result of all the cables passed is like a spider structure (very aesthetic in my mind, hope I will get a good result!). In every hole there are a little "ring" wich will be illuminated so the contrast with the black cable will be awesome! This plates correspond to the 24 pins plate and the GPU power cable plates.

Custom backplate:
Nowadays there are a lot of mod with Waterblocks + backplate combination build but I wanted to try to be different to other people so decided to design my own backplate:



It's simple, full matte-black plate + the gpu model letters. In real it's a double backplate, one black and one blue. All the blue parts, like the mb tray plate will be illuminated with SMD leds directly connected to the GPU fan connector !

Last week I found a really good offer of a gtx 480 for 200€, so I decided to buy one and this is it:





wich will be configured to SLI with my old POV GTX 480 with aquacomputer waterblock:



So there will be 2 custom backplates for each GPU and the two backplates illuminated too.

By now, that's all the pieces that I have already done! for the next days I will post the custom midplate and probably the full faceplate.

All this pieces are designed by my own but will be made with laser cutting tech.

Hi! I have been very busy this days and had not time to start modding the case but I have got a lot of new cad designs. Today I have made a video showing the process for design my pieces, in this case a fan grill:



Recommend to see the video in 1080P

Looks good. Are the letters sitting in a milled inset? It's hard to tell.

Looks like it. That's an easier way of doing too as you don't have to worry about dealing with the character's counters as everything is an open path.

Looks nice!

Custom 120 / 140 grill for obsidian 800D + prolimatech 140 blue fan:











And now just arrived the 5 meters of SMD leds purchased from ebay:







This leds are more bright than old ones, are so bright that I must connect them to a rehobus to avoid eye damage every time I look to the pc .

And this is how it looks installed and working in the backplate:















And a "bonus" picture of my new mouse R.A.T. 9:

That backplate looks amazing! You really did some quick work on it! Was it laser cut?
Great mod so far!

Hi!

It's good to see you here too

Hope you enjoy in my next updates. My next step is to customize a CPU waterblock and to end the midplate.

Yeah! they aren't expensive and can be full customized

By now I don't know how to do for showing the CPU core temps in the LCD, I know that there's a speedfan plugin but I can't make it work :S

you know how to?

No, but I think that it's easy to change the led.

I will done it in the near future, when getting all the new watercooling stuff.
