    What's up guys, how's it going?
    So, this will be my fourth Cyberpunk-themed project. This project was made to present at Campus Party Brazil in 2019.
    This year I took the big chance with Cooler Master Brazil, because I received the so dreamed C700P!
    He came in the middle of the hour, but in the rush to get everything done in time.

    Here's a little bit of what's to come in this worklog.

    Below are the pieces that will be part of this project!

    And to give that "start" on the project and start with "key" gold, follow some things that are already almost ready for the front of the project.

    A little bit of real carbon fiber! LCD controlled by Arduino with 2 independent temperature sensors. Power button and key to lock the power button.
    [​IMG]

    But since this key was very ugly, I decided to modify it a bit. I used 2mm aluminum plate and 3mm glossy black acrylic. Polishing still needs to be done.

    Since I'm going to use the power button on that panel, I removed the power and reset button from the original cabinet panel.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And to make a new front, I decided to use the original front dock and for that I had to cut the same, since I was a little forward and I needed a straight front for the carbon fiber plate. I also did some reinforcements and support for the pieces. Still missing by screws on the plate and reinforce with resin the acrylic pieces that were glued. And then it is logical to paint this medium.

    And finally, a preliminary assembly just to have an idea of how everything will be. I will use hunting type buttons to turn on and off parts of the lighting (the computer will be for personal use and will be in my room).

    I wanted to change the front of the C700P a bit, but as the case is too beautiful, even gives a pen, so I thought of a very subtle and discreet modification.
    Increase the crease he already had on the face, took the logo of the CM and smoothed the hole that remained with plastic mass. Next step, painting.

    And follows the painting of the plastic parts.
    The color chosen was a pearly orange from Kawasaki. Since the budget is short and you could not make a candy. But the color did not disappoint me and the result I quite liked.

    Selected color in catalog.
    [​IMG]

    Ink in the can.
    [​IMG]

    Plastic cabinet fairing parts prepared for painting.
    [​IMG]

    And finally the painting almost finished. I only took photos of the front so far because it was the only one I have polished so far. But the final polishing with automotive wax is still lacking.
    The logo that is in this piece I ended up choosing to fix horizontally.
    I also put this detail in
    smoke acrylic where I made the crease of the previous photos.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And the loco in focus. The letters will be in glossy black and 4 in frosted.
    [​IMG]

    And finally, a video of the painting to see the real effect of the pearls.

    The orange looks great, really fits the case, so much better than the original

    I also really like the orange color. And those switches are very beautiful. I always thought of using it on a project, but I had never done anything that fit the theme.

    The curves of the case emphasize the color, and especially the perolate effect of the ink.

    Thank you. A good job for you too!

    And let's test the hardware before installing everything.

    And while installing the operating system some lighting tests.
    First of the details of the lateral and SSD that are controlled by the first Arduino, where the illumination is by indirectly addressable tape by the edges of the acrylic.



    Now the tests of the Block and the hoops that go wrapped of the fan, controlled by a second Arduino.
    (there is one that does not respect the others, but it has been corrected in the Arduino itself, since the tape is addressable.)

    After everything is working properly and with the operating system installed, we will install the rigid pipes and perform tests to check for leaks.

    And after the tests, with the plastic parts of the case and VGA installed.

    They are RGB. I have the option of controlling for mobo, or controller.
    But they look pretty overshadowed after I put the covers with the RGB led rings on top of them.


    I wish I could have taken more photos of the worklog, but since the project was meant to be displayed in an event, the deadline was too short to finish. And for lack of time I could not take so many photos.
