Project "illogical"

Hey guys,
I want to introduce you my new project.
After building a few casemods in the last years I want to build a big scratch build.
I dont want to do any compromise, so this project will become very huge

Hardware I will use:

- MOTHERBOARD: Asus Rampage IV Black Edition
- CPU: Intel i7-4960x
- VGA: actually i have 4x GTX 470 - I think I will replace them with some R9 290
- RAM: ???
- PSU: Lepa G 1600

Wasserkühlung:
- 2x Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 420mm
- 1x Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 Full Copper 560mm
- 2x Alphacool VPP655
- 11x Enermax UCTB14B
- EK-Supremacy Clean CSQ - Full Copper
- EK-FC R9-290X - Acetal + Backplate
- Bitspower BP-MBWP-C48 und BP-MBWP-C47
- 2x EK-RES X3 250

Big thanks to Enermax, Lepa and Aquatuning.

A first Sketch of what we will see here:



I'm very proud to announce the first sponsor for this project:

Aquatuning:



Enermax:



Lepa:



Thanks a lot

Yesterday wasnt a good modding day...
I want to assamble the profiles and the front and backplate. I need to drill some threads, but at the second hole the tap is broken...

Today I tried to be a little bit more productive.
I have finished the profiles for the corners.



fits really well



See you the next days

Hand routing channels and the ends of alu bars? Plus one for hardcore modding.

Milling in itself is awesome, but doing it by hand gets massive kudos

Good luck with this build!

but just the ends of the bars are routed by hand, the rest is made with a mechanical stop.

Are you using a wood blade in the chop saw?

I've always wondered about that for cutting aluminium!

Just an FYI, if you havent pre-ordered a Rampage Black i would suggets perhaps looking at an alternative SKU. OcUK have sold app 4x what was shipped to the whole of the UK and many more times than allocation allowed. I am sure Scan are in a similar position too. So yea, good luck with that.
Nice start to the build though

Nice project! Won't you have any troubles with motherboard and 4 video cards? Memory slots on the Asus Rampage IV Black Edition are very close to 1st PCI-E slot and this may cause trouble with video card backplate

The last days I was really motivated an started modding again.
I have added some profiles to the corners.





the following work of drilling, threading and countersunking was really annoying but now its done. :thumbsup:







the profiles together



at the case





After that I've cutted some alu sheets... every time the same: marking, cutting, filing



... adapt some alu sheets for the top and bottom





this profiles are made for holding the sidepanels. I hope it will work :think:
