inside panels 2 pieces
well after a break I resume ..
arrangement of the lower panel and shaping to facilitate the installation of this fantastic ASUS STRIX X-570 F gaming motherboard thanks to my sponsor PCHUNTER.it store
creation of the bracket for the archive disks, I use my old ones for the size.
well guys go ahead, the project is well under way, I do a lot of background work in this way i will get better later and i will go even faster ..
today I prepare the supports for the internal panel that will contain the cables and the 2.5-inch hard drive storage bays, the ssd that will contain the operating system will be positioned outside.
I create the supports from soft steel pipes on which the panels will be mounted I use a pipe cutter.
adoro questo strumento ha un taglio perfetto...
una volta ricavati i supporti uso la punta filettante per creare il filetto
ora è la volta del pannello come fatto per gli altri non sara altro che un sandwich pannelli in acrilico da 2 mm e 5 mm quello centrale che conterrà i leds.
posizionalento dei supporti
I go ahead .. preparation for external ssd positioning, they will have led covers that I will make later, I also arrange the logo of the eagle also with led.
I fix the 2 discs to the panel with its screws
drilling for sata and power data cables
let's move on to the eagle it will be fixed with screws to the case, inside I will make an opening with a small rgb led strip, I will place on it the second thinner panel (2 mm) painted black, this will hide the screws, once turned on you will only see the contour with a pleasant effect.
proceed with the finishing of the external panel and housing ssd
I realized that the case begins to have a certain weight, due to the reinforcement of the legs made previously.
problem with the brackets of the feet I have to find a different solution or not to glue them but assemble them with screws I make them again for the third time !!!
I was forgetting an important thing ..... the power button !!!
2 are a startup and one a reset.
I place it on the bottom side on the right side panel. this consists of 3 panels
1 below (for leds)
1 of cover located inside, I have to puncture all three but with great precision,
the fantastic buttons sponsored by PHOBIA
next phase, positionally led strips inside the panels and some tricks ... and we proceed to painting
I know ... I know what you are thinking ... yes yes nice but the mod when it arrives?
everything now begins to take shape, a lot of preparatory work was needed but now the time has come to paint and assemble ..
preparation of the frame with clinging primer
for the anthracite gray basic covers, application of the logos cut out with a plotter and then matt black
painting of the first panels, base in glossy anthracite gray and then a coat of matt black.
waiting for the panels to dry, in all there are 25 that make up the mod, I proceed with the break-ins of the intermediate panels of the sides and internal logo panel or those that will contain the LEDs, prepared for some time.
cutting and preparing mesh for roofing panels
waiting for the painted grids to dry proceed with other.
insertion of the led strips in the side and front and top panels.
I use these connectors which are very easy to install, they are clip-on and there is no need to solder anything, I match them a bit because they are not at the same level as the 4 mm plexi
this is the intermediate panel since the covering ones are black and absorb all the light I apply white vinyl in this way the light will feed well and will also shoot on the edge
assembly of the front and top covers which also house the 5 120 mm alphacool 3 fans on the top and 2 on the inlet
another prestigious sponsor joins the party, the fantastic CRUCIAL BALLISTIX TRACER arrive, perfect for this project, a generous 32 GB kit !!!!

realization of internal led panels for covering.

finishing last rgb paneld before to the final assembling...
Really nice work! I love the backlighting!
I agree with @zogthegreat , since you started this build, I watched it several times and it is great to discover new parts on every update , this is what I call a real talent for modding, awesomness, originality, accuracy, without the help of any machining I envy your skills
