    Hi dudes!!!!


    After a long break, I am finally back with a new project. This time, it's for a case mod, I'll start another scratch build later.

    This mod will be based on a Bitfenix Ronin


    [​IMG]



    First of all, I do thank Bitfenix and Aquatuning France for their sponsoring :thumb:

    Concerning

    hardware:

    - MSI Z97M gaming
    - Intel I5-4670K
    - 16Go Avexir Blitz 1.1 2133Mhz
    - MSI gtx 680
    - Bitfenix Fury 650G
    - SSD kingston Hyper X 120G

    Watercooling:

    - WB CPU Alphacool NexXxos
    - WB GTX 680 Alphacool NexXxos with backplate

    Here we go!!!



    To begin with, I cut the top for the rad which will takes place between the plastic and the metal structure of the case

    and cut a long aluminium and PVC piece which will cover the front and top of the case

    Having received my parcel from Bitfenix and Aquatuning France :clap:...

    [​IMG]



    ... I started working on an aluminium piece for the bottom of the Ronin to put rad and PSU

    and an other piece to keep the PSU plug at the same place

    Now, I have to find a way to create a great backlightning on the white acryl :confused:






    More pictures soon, and I hope you'll like this project





    see you ;)

    That custom 'light shroud' around the outside of the case is a nice touch!

    Hello guys!!!


    small update :clap:

    I have worked on parts for the bottom of the case.


    I cut 8mm acryl to strengthen the part which supports the Fury

    It also allow to create a compartment to use a 80mm fan to directly extract air from the PSU.




    Second part of the work was to create a fan grill with white acryl. I thing I will use backlighting here too.

    Hello!


    it's time for an update :thumb:


    I've worked on the inside of the case, creating a piece with aluminium. I kept the original design of the PSU/bay cover


    [​IMG]

    It still needs some finishing works, I'll do it soon.


    I take some times to make some photo of the watercooling parts sent by Aquatuning.fr


    Cape fuzion 100

    Alphacool cool fitting ( matt black )

    Hi guys !!!!


    Some news about this project. Two news sponsors will help me for the built, Avexir, who sent me 4x4Go Blitz 1.1 2133 Mhz :thumb:, and Royal Covering with a roll af black brushed titaned vinyl :rock: whick must arrive soon.

    Of course, I had to change the color of the Ram :D


    [​IMG]


    Concerning the mod:


    I have really few space to use the cape fusion, so I will use an aquatube.


    [​IMG]


    I finally decided to change the MSI MPower Max for a MSI Z97M gaming ( with a small paint job too )


    [​IMG]


    I worked on a new stand for the 360mm rad for the top


    [​IMG]


    I also worked on the gpu's backplate using an alphacool for base. I cut white acryl and add some aluminium pieces. I am just waiting for the vinyl to finish it.


    [​IMG]


    With those modification, I could finished the watercooling loop. I use rigid tubbing/fitting to connect the GPU.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]





    I will not keep the part for I/O panel with usb and audio, I don't really need it. It will give a better look to the front of the case, more simple.




    Updates will arrive soon, stay tuned
