I like the renders. On those pictures it looks HUGE. Good luck. I hope you will get the build to be straight.

Thanks! I'm glad you like them and yes, it'll be huge

Ok, I've cut the back panel today and then the original motherboard tray to fit Phobya Xtreme Quad 480 radiator:








Next: side panels. Parts were joined with rests of the previous cuts and glued all together with mounting adhesive.

Right:




Left:




And finally, the plastic "framework" in front of the case:


Tomorrow I'll complete the side panels hopefully

Looks like it will prove interesting(has so far). I'll keep my eyes peeled for that update

So... today hasn't been a very productive day

I've cut the holes for the exhaust air on the right side panel:












But when I finished all the holes, I realised it wasn't a clean cut and I'd be sanding a lot of time so I changed the plan and put a fan grill from the Phobya radiator. I think I have to buy another one

Depite the wasted time, I finished the side panels Some filler for the gaps, sanding, carbon vinyl fiber, acrylic sheet, honeycomb mesh and... voilà:

Left panel:




Right panel:




Tomorrow I'll glue the two pieces of the front framework and put some vinyl.

Why don't you just use the same grill on both sides of the case bottom?

Actually, it was my first option, buuut:
1. Work: The hole was bigger than the fan grill. I didn't want to cover the gaps.
2. Aesthetics: I think the window matches better in the case, especially with the upper one.
3. Space: I have no space for the fan grill + fans + pumps + radiator + fans.

Just a little patience and you'll see If you are thinking about intake air: 2 fans in the front and 2 in the back. I know this way the airflow is worse but never mind.

Regards and thanks for comment.

I couldn't post pics today because I've been busy but I'm progressing.

More updates! I glued the framework and put the vinyl. Also, I attached the bottom of the upper chamber and the roof of the lower one. I had to do it twice because first time it wasn't well aligned

Pics:
















Depending on the angle and light, you can see the joints through the vinyl. I don't know if I'm gonna fix it or improve it in a future

Stay tuned!

Hi guys! Time to mod the interior of the small chamber. I removed a piece of metal to be able to put an aluminium sheet and hide that horrible joint. But first, I covered the floor of the chamber:














And I put some hardware:

Thank you!

Sorry for delayed pics, I forgot to post yesterday

This is the other grill for Phobya radiator with the vinyl:


I started the other side of the bottom chamber. It's almost the same procedure, but I'm gonna fit Phobya remote receiver in there:


















































Stay tuned!
