    We are back!!!

    Didnt post much buildlogs on the forums these last months, because of some personal stuff.
    But I did some builds for events... And also started a nice project with two golden oldies.

    These are... two recycle cases: The Corsair 800D and 750D.

    [​IMG]

    Both dismantled.

    [​IMG]

    After this, used the two fronts and one top and bottom.

    [​IMG]

    And I have modified one back so that the mobo tray exactly is in the middle

    [​IMG]

    En de bedoeling is dat aan beide kanten een 480 radiator komt te zitten

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Changed the other top, for the external cables to disappear.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With help from mini Kier

    [​IMG]

    And I've made an aluminum backcover and bend a midcover

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More soon!!

    UPDATE: Corsair 800Dutch MbK

    [​IMG]

    Measured and cut a orange acrylic plate to fit one of the midplate

    [​IMG]

    I have covered the bottom of the plate with white vinyl ... more on this later ;)

    [​IMG]

    Bend a aluminum plate to get a separation

    [​IMG]

    On top of this also an orange acrylic plate

    [​IMG]

    On this also a layer of white vinyl.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then on the white a layer black vinyl.

    [​IMG]

    Bottom now looks like this

    [​IMG]

    When placing a LED strip beneath this the dispersion of light is nice and smooth and because of the white vinyl a better light distribution.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Now the first products of a great sponsor .... GIGABYTE!!!

    [​IMG]

    For this build they provided me some Gigabyte TITAN X GPUs

    [​IMG]

    And a great motherboard: the Gigabyte GA-X99-SOC Force

    Putting this together, you'll get this:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Perfect for this build :)

    I also have cut a pair of orange plates for the second midplate.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Looking good :)

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Back to the top ... I have cut some small orange plates orange acrylic for the bended aluminum and made one edge, which will be placed like this.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    What looks like this from the front.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Once en-lighted this will give a nice glow.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Until the next update ;)

    For this build I'm going to use setup in the reservoirs and pumps ... 2 pumps with BP kits, tops and reservoirs on either side of the motherboard. More about this later.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Placed two nice grills onto the radiators

    [​IMG]

    Covered the midplate with orange acrylic

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And placed a a layer of white and black vinyl onto the grills.

    [​IMG]

    Also made the midplate black

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Used a stip of acrylic for the sides of the rads and also made black.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    For this build Corsair sended me two beautiful Dominator® Platinum Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 DRAM 3400MHz C16 Memory Kits
    Perfect for this motherboard!!!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And mounted some LEDs behind the grills and under the midplate

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Finally I will place 4 SSDs at the back of the case, got some nice space left for this.

    [​IMG]

    On both sides 2x SSD. For now red ones for measurments, but there will be other ones.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To be continued!

    Time for a new update! I used some other cards to show you how I'm going to make the setup in terms of the water cooling. All tubes going up.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The idea is to connect everything in the upper compartment.

    [​IMG]

    Also did some brainstorming for the sidepanels. For this I used an acrylic orange plate with a black plate on top off this with fanholes

    [​IMG]

    On the sides behind the orange acrylic illuminated with RGB LED strips

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    In the dark

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also in the Corsair package, beautiful Air Series AF120 LED White Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Fans
    Which fit perfectly in this build. Therefore exchanged them with the old ones.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Internally, I also added some nice things. For this I called my good friend Pascal with his CNC.
    Much easier then sawing ;)
    Again a plate as the sides with small slots.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    and for eye catcher the same plate with a circle in the middle + inlay with my "MadebyKier" logo.
    This is actually 6mm transparent acrylic with this a layer of white and then black vinyl, again for better light distribution.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    More soon ;)

    I knew you were up to something when you covered the fan guards. That is an awesome effect.:rock: The whole thing looks so d*mn good! Like the orange bleeding into the white lights too, even if it's an accident. It just mixes nicely.
    Also, More magic by Paslis on the sly.:D

    If they are here, they figured out you are awesome.;)
    -Or are you saying there's another Pascal? I hope I'm not blurring 2 modder/fabricators into one.:worried:
