    Hey everyone,



    I am back with another project log for you, hope you enjoy whats comning,and please feel free to comment



    This time i will be working in the be quiet dark base pro 900 which in my opinion is one Badass case with Badass features,

    Huge Thank you goes out to bequiet for providing me with the Case,Fans and Powersupply,
    http://www.bequiet.com/en
    And huge Thank you to my friend over @ icemodz.com
    http://www.icemodz.eu/



    The theme around this beauty of a case is simple ,black and put on some coloured accents here and there,

    i will simply call it black treassure since i think it will fit the case and the overall endresult.



    Enjoy :)

    The first thing i am going to do for this Build is delidding my 4790k and improve the thermal compound on the die with some liquid metal Coolaboratory Liquid Pro )pro since it is supposed to be 2 degrees better :/ )

    All this was done with the Der8auer Delidd Die Mate,
    Way to easy...

    Also Changing Waterblocks -- going from a Bitspower Summit ef to a
    EK Supremacy Evo Gold

    Project Dark Treassure Continues....
    in the awsome Be Quiet Dark Base 900 Pro
    have been working on a custom psu cover out of acrylic,made two
    Since i was not really satisfied with the psu cover i thought why not redo it :) (and improve)
    I think it turned out great ,next i will have to figure out a nice paintjob for it and some decoraion .

    Keep u posted..

    Well since i recently aquired myself a Samsung 950pro nvme Drive,
    i thought after some playing around i should watercool it,

    These nvme drives get pretty hot around 60 degrees while playing mafia 3 for a couple of hours,and i don´t want that kind of heat around my cpu or GPU,

    So i got myself a waterblock with some germa evngineering from Aquacomputer.
    This block is a beast.

    Here a few shots :)

    So the cover is all done ,
    All this was done with one 6mm thick acrylic,and then primed and painted with some car paint (matt black)

    Also made a cover for the Drivebays and by that also make it possible to strap 4 120Gb ssd´s on that (which i already strapped into a raid0 configuration to give me a little faster loading times while loading my steam library :) )

    now i have to wait for my gpu block to arrive so i am able to watercoolmy Asus 1080 Strix and get som overclocking done :)
    and some more fans together with a Psu .

    Hey everyone hope you are heaving a great weekend ☺

    Trying to do some work today.
    With my newly aquired Motosaw
    from dremel.
    I really love the way you are able to controll you re cut.

    I was not quite happy with the psu cover and the writing on there
    Since Be quiet is supposed to be two words but on the cover there it looked like one.
    so i thought on aðproching this a little bit different.
    i will be doing 3d lettera out of 5mm acrylic instead.

    here a few pics. hope you like it.[​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Hey everyone,

    So it is time to continue ,
    started this week on my own front panel door,
    made out of 4mm acrylic,
    and also did a cover around the fans to make it look cleaner while showing off the fans :)

    Huge Shoutout to Bequiet for making this possible
    Thank you !!

    The Be Quiet Dark Base 900 Pro
    is all coming along,
    still waiting on my cpu block i was hoping to use in this build,
    and some more watercooling gear like tubing and fittings,

    but in the meanwhile ideas come up and why not use the time and integrate them :)

    did a small cover for the top radiator with a small lip on the bottom,so i am able to cast some "indirect" light on to the gpu and my watercooled nvme Drive. )samsung 950 pro,

    Used 4mm acrylic and bend the bottom 45 degrees to the front so the LED light does no throw to much glow to the bottom but more to the frontþ

    also installed my custom ROG logo on to the motherboardcover.



    more to come soon.

    PACKAGETIME :)
    So today i recieved one of my missing pieces for this build the
    Aqualis reservoir from Aquacomputer.

    That borosilicate glass will add a nice quality flavour behind
    that tempered glass sidepandel of the case :)

    here are a few unboxing shots to share with you the quality :)

    Hey everyone,today i will be working on some cosmetic aspects of the case,
    using some di noc vinyl .
    adding some carbon touches to the overall look.,

    the frame where the tempered glas sidepanel is located needed some coverup ,due to the versatility of the case there are many different mounting holes that
    i did not use and wanted to cover them up ,especially since the tempered glas did not cover them. (but the vinyl looks great i think)

    then i made cover for the 6 and pin on the gpu to make it look a bit cleaner also with some carbon fiber touches.
    and finally the 16Gb corsair dominator platinum memory got some carbon fiber touches aswell.

    stay tuned for more.

    Great job, I particulary enjoy your choice of hardware, I squint on that Kyro m2 with same samsung SSD for myself, and I am also found of Bequiet and Aquacomputer gear, I will follow this with interest...but if I may allow myself, and unless it's my turn, there's an issue with pictures sizing...even on my 32" screen, I can't see totally most of your pictures, without scrolling down scale to the lowest... :confused:
