    Hello everyone!
    This is my project log for Black Edition.

    What is Black Edition
    BE, is a near all blackout system.
    I've had many many RGB systems and they're all essentially a distraction.
    I've longed for a system with low light pollution, while remaining nice to look at.

    Special Thankyou to
    Mayhems Solutions LTD

    What to do....


    Well, i noticed something interesting within the case design.
    There's 5 HDD bay covers lined up the right side of the case, which could be used for passthroughs and a clean loop.


    I didn't even hesitate, i got my dremel out and cut 4 holes for the passthroughs.

    After this i needed to think, where am i going to put this res/pump combo..
    So i tried something and with serious doubts, it actually fitted under the shroud, between the rad and PSU.
    Did not expect it to fit.

    Okay, so loop time.
    Might as well get it all in and have a look at how it fits.

    I sat back for a few days and contemplated what i want here, where i could modify, what could be done.
    While watching the Dark Knight, i seen the spikes on batman's arms.
    This got me thinking, of a Batman/Wayne batcave system.


    So i got the old dremel out and started cutting test pieces.

    Spikers replicating the suit on top, armor plates on front.
    However, i hated the armor plates, threw them away.
    kept spikes and examined the suit a little closer, and found there to be straps with what looked like antique looking buckles.
    So... SHOPPING!! lol

    I like this.... however it still looks half arsed.

    Ahh, looks better with the straps going under the top panel.

    Now... front panel.
    I tried lots of things here, including full custom front panels to no avail.
    Hated everything i did to this.
    Look at this failure (UNSANDED)

    [​IMG]


    ANYWAY
    I liked the straps being copied on the front, so.... why not do the spikes too ? Worth a shot right ?

    Still lots to be clrearly done.

    Lots more to come.
    Still waiting on a few things to arrive before i set to work on the insides.

    Working on the side panel now.
    This is 3mm black acrylic, with antique brass poppers placed through the acrylic.
