    now all the panels are ready let's start assembling this black beast

    the time has come to unpack the alphacool gifts were months in the box waiting to be used

    [​IMG]

    two fans at the bottom inlet, I calculated the air flow that starts from the bottom and rises upwards while on the front panel the 2 120mm fans are inlet.

    [​IMG]

    will be hidden by the lower panel in fact these 2 were part of the aio cooling system of alphacool non rgb, I ordered 3 more additional fans to mount them on.

    the aio alphacool eisbaer LT system that I am going to install has a thin radiator.

    technical tests for RGB connection and fans
    Alphacool, sent me this hub controller device to which to connect all the rgb strips and fans
    controllable from smartphone with app downloadable from google play
    I must say that it works very well, many programming keys and settings.

    That 3rd last shot from the side is the money shot ! there's nothing i don't like about it , the shape the lights the over all design is perfect!

    And to think you can accomplish it without any fancy tools makes me feel like i'm cheating using just a bench router :p

    Nice card :)

    making a pc case without use of cnc or laser was a challenge for me, it won't be perfect..ok, but i know that with time and patience you can make something beautiful :)

    realization of the LED backplate of the sapphire pulse 5700xt graphics card
    it is divided into 3 pieces, the underlying slab with RGB 4MM LEDs and the cover divided into 2 2MM pieces, leaving a glimpse of the underlying LEDs but let's start with order.
