I wouldnt paint it. Buff the crap out of the aluminum. ohhh shinies!
ok, case is done!
here are 3 pictures - more in the next few days
Nice work man..
It look really good. Its plexi or have you just paint it white?
Very nice and clean. I probably would have gone with a contrasting colour on the braiding, if I was to attempt anything like this. But that's unlikely, I'm lazy! I like the minimalistic approach with the water cooling though.
here are some more pictures:
The inside of the case looks great. It has a very uniform blue / white glow.
Could you please provide some details on the external radiator?
Yes of course. It is a Watercool MoRa2 Pro with 9 x 120mm fans.
But this is the old version. The MoRa 3 is available in 9x120mm and 9x140mm.
Aquatuning.us has the 9 x 140mm version:
Looks great Patrick, may have been a long wait in the middle but the end result was well worth it
Yes I know but I had to learn for my exams and afterwards I had four weeks internship and now I'm learning again for my math exam …
This is a really nice looking clean and tidy build, would be nice to know the painting process because the finish looks top-notch.
is there no airflow inside the case at all ?
also have you considered painting the pci covers to match then with the cards or the white of the case ?
Thank you for your answer.
What kind of lightning do you use?.
All the white parts made a painter and the black ones were powder coated.
Yes - the fan inside the PSU is the only one in the whole case. But under the PSU is a ventilation hole with a dust filter.
No, I like it just the way it is.
It is a old 60cm long Flexlight. I don't know the vendor anymore. I guess Phobya or Lamptron.
And two white 3mm LED's for the EK Supreme.
I will have to keep that in mind. Thank you.
Hello again .... after I finished the case back in 2011 I want to update it now. The reason for this is that I sold my watercooling setup. It wasn't an easy step but I am fine with aircooling now.
As you may remember the current version of the case has more or less no airflow because the PSU fan is the only one inside the case. So this has to change. At this point it is very important for me that every intake fan has a dustfilter.
Since the Lian Li PC-V2010 hasn't got any filters I had to work something out. After several hours of thinking and 3D-modeling I created some pretty nice solutions for the case. Of course these 3D design are useless as long as you don't have the machines to mill them . But Marc (the owner of the small liquid cooling company named Liquid Extasy) helped me out. He milled all the parts for me and I'm really thankful for this.
Enough has been said, here are the first pictures from the case feet:
(Yes I'm sorry for the bad quality but my good camera just stop working a few days ago. )
I got my inspiration for the feet from Darkened and his beautiful project Orange Monster. Hopefully he will finish it someday.
Last but not least a have a quick rendering for you guys:
Today I took some pictures of the front and top cover. Just like the case feet, both were made by Liquid Extasy.
Here you go:
Yesterday I moved the hardware into the V2010. Here are some pictures:
For the PSU I ordered a new mounting plate. This one is laser cut and has cuttings for four USB-Ports.
Due to the rebuilding of the case I included a 120 mm fan into the bottom. Therefore Marc from Liquid Extasy milled a inner and a outer cover. The inner cover holds the fan and on the outer cover the dust filter is applied.
For the front of the case Marc milled some more parts for me. Here you see my fan holder. It holds two 120 mm fans and a dust filter.
Lastly I want to show you my solution for the top fan. Again made by Liquid Extasy and a multipiece design. Inside is a cover which holds the fan with a additionally plate. This design allows me to mount the fan from the outside of the case. So even if the space between the CPU-cooler and the top is small, the fan mounting is super easy.
More pictures soon.
A few quick taken pictures for today. More to come.
