Interesting, very tidy job with the top acrylic peice Hope the rest is as good.
Last week a received a very nice package from IT-Service
First the great motherboard: The ASRock Z68 Extreme4
Two kits Corsair 4 GB DDR3-1600 Kit
and the beautiful Intel® Core™ i5-2500K
The big ASUS ENGTX580 DCII/2DIS/1536MD5
And a nice Sony Optiarc AD-5260S-0B
I'm not only showing you good products but have also done some work
The front. I want to give the same looks as the top, with acryl and 2 CM fans.
The plastic front
Here I have cut away the middle bar
Sawn a piece of 5mm blue acryl
And again the same as the top..........sawn the two fans
Made the slot for the dvd
Removed the tape
But we're not there yet, transparent is not what I want. That's why I have used black film to make small borders, later on with light
Paste tape again
Now I have cut out a 5mm line
Removed all the tape
Between the DVD and the fan is coming a bay reservoir with the blue acrylic as res window
That's it for today my friends
Looking good dude..One question though, have many builds have you got going, it's like a production line. Or do you just never sleep?
Thnx, lol got two builds now, I just hate to sit still when I'm waiting for parts
Looking good. Nice and tidy
Did my first cutting in the 600T this week
The 2 fans in the front
And the slot for the in/ outlet radiator
Also drawn the top fans
And after some dremel power
Also past black film on the top acryl
And slide out the same lines as the front panel
Put everything together
The fans in the front
And the outlet from the rad with just enough space to put the fittings in
The 600T how it's gonna be
Spot on kier!!!
Every single time your mods are awesome.
I look forward to seeing this completed, especially if the inside looks as good as the outside.
wow! as nutman said, quite like your last one, doesn't have to be a bad thing tho just made your style... ....as long as it doesn't mean you build 10-in-a-row
LOVE the build!
this mod fits the 600T perfectly!
Goinig to some nice things inside
Kier, your work is amazing (Clicks to website - mouth drops)
Keep up the inspiration =]
Bay res update !!!
Today I've received my BP reservoir. Nice and small
Removed the acryl window from the reservoir and marked the holes for the M4 bolds
Cut the lines out of the black film. Same shape as the internal from the res
And placed it
Nice, tidy and clean looking I like it!
Really nice modding!
What film are you using to cover the blue acrylic?
Awesome stuff kier
Was the mobo sponsored? If not, why choose the ASRock?
I'm going to go with sponsored, from IT-Service, but it's actually supposed to be a pretty solid board in the mid-price range of boards. More to that, I'd be interested to see some benching or other testing on that board when you're done...
Don't mean to sound down on it...it is a good board. But IMO there are better choices (especially for asthetics, which is important to kier I think) so I just wanted clarification
