Can't imagine how stunning it'll be with a Wood light on!!!
Kier,can you get the PCIe I/O mounts separately? they will be handy for an upcoming build.
Will try to mount some lights in it but not sure yet if this will look nice
You mean the I/O cover?
No,the poles that mount the GPU's
I think I have some left if you want them
I will take you up on that my man,thanks!
No problem. Got seven of them, so just let me know.... and there yours
Another update only this time I'm going to hide some things ...
The reason is too much green. It is much better to add more black now the liquid is in.
Also I don't like the frosted green parts anymore. That's why I replaced the side strips with clear UV green ... and cutout some shapes.
To hide some green, I have sawn a new plate 1cm smaller than the original
And copied everything that was in the original
Removed the tape
First pasted white and then black vinyl. White is for better light distribution so the edges will glow nicely.
Kept a small distance between the panels.
Same story with the top plate
Also did some things to the front to get more black accents But first sawn a cover UV green.
Which will be placed like this.
Made the shape of the black plate like this after some puzzling.
And again pasted it with black and white vinyl.
Also a little distance between the plates
Beginning to become what I had in mind, so no more big changes.
But ... we're not done yet
Wow, what a stunning build. Always loved your build logs, Kier! I really prefer these black accents.
Thanks Oozy, me too. Black accents look much better
Wow this is amazing! Good luck with mod of the month!
Thanks you guys!!! Will treat you with a nice new update today
My mod of the month nomination (Thank you Bit-tech) is a good reason to do a nice little update I think.
So here we go.... Just a few more things to do in this build and then the final shoot coming your way
Behind the middle section I've got some nice space for a Bitspower X-station
LED color green
To hide this and for a little eye catcher I called my CNC friend Pascal...Thanks mate!!!
Nice result on a rainy day
To get a better effect regarding the UV stuff, I placed some UV LED strips
Since I have a bit of a trauma from too much sleeving in the past, I have chosen the easy way. Ordering Bitfenix alchemy sleeve from my favorite modding shop Highflow
A black ATX 24-pin extension
also a 8-pin EPS extention
2x a 6-pin PCI-E extension
and last 2x een 8-pin PCI-E extension
After some pulling, bending and swearing, got some nice curves
GPUs where the hardest to get in shape, but it's ok now I think
Next the final shoot... small preview pic.
Wow Kier! Awesome!
Banchetto in Italian has a double meaning: Little worbench and banquet.
Never more appropriate! With all that shiny hardware on it your mod is a real feast for the eyes...
Good to know this, thought it was just a name for the bench. Thank you so much for your comment... great to hear
Hey Kier . . . congrats on your nomination for mod of the month. This is an amazing and sleek build absoultely love the green . . . good luck!
Hi my dear modding friends,
Because of some personal stuff I couldn't make time to post the final shoot.
But here it is!!! .... The final shoot Banchetto MbK
Special thanks goes to:
Vincent and Lily from:
And Federico from:
Very sad to share with you my friends, but for personal reasons this will be one of the last builds that I make. I still have two special builds which I've started that I will finish.
But after this.... it's over.
You have been cranking out top class builds non stop for a few years. This one is brilliant. It will be sad not seeing them on the forums anymore.. But I'm sure the next 2 will be just as good.
I'm sure after a little rest the modding bug will grab you again
