    Hi fellow modders,

    It was a matter of time but here it is... my first real scratch build
    Thanks to Nate from E22 for the design.

    Sometimes you see a design with a wow factor. This happend too me with this design. After some consultation we decided to try to build this design.
    Nate the design and I'm building.

    The design:

    The hardware that comes in is still a suprise...even for me ;) , but anyway there will be an SLI set and some cool watercooling

    After buying aluminum strips and other stuff at the hardware store, it was time to start building. After some fitting and measuring the frame was created. I still had an old Mobo tray from a old TJ07.

    Cut some plates of acrylic and placed it.

    For measuring I have an old blown up Classified.

    Made the door/ cover for the PSU

    And cut to size the front plate

    Now it's a matter of drawing lines on the inside. The result after sawing and filing.

    Cut holes for the fans at the front and the lid on top covered with acrylic

    [​IMG]

    Covers closed

    [​IMG]

    Placed some nice 120mm NorthQ fans to see how it looks.

    If it's Kier you have to follow! You are the reason I bought Tj11, you should ask silverstone for some extra goods for that.
    Looking awesome. This will be an epic build knowing the quality you put into your work. You got my attention a long time ago.

    Looks excellent Richard :D it's a strange feeling watching a design that lived in your head come into the world by someone else's hands. Happy to say you are doing a stunning job and the little tweaks you are adding opposed to the original concept are wonderful :D

    Kier...scratchbuild.

    'nuff said.:D I like the design. It's almost a motherboard shrine. Maybe people will show up and burn incense in front of it when it's done.

    Another update :) Need to catch up with my FB updates ;)

    I have covered the acrylic panels with matte black vinyl and installed some fans to see how it looks

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And cut two acrylic plates. 1 for the controller (aquaero VF) and 1 for the lamptron switches
    Also blackened with vinyl

    I want to build this one without too much cost, so in this build if possible, all kind of stuff that I allready have.
    The first idea was to purchase a 480 rad, but also overhere a bit crisis. So it's becoming two 240 rads. That's why I made ​​the front panel again with the fanholes more apart.
    Side effect is that it looks better i think, left-center-right all the same sizes between them

    [​IMG]

    This also blackened and polished the edges.

    [​IMG]

    Placed the mobo with some EKWB blocks. And naturally straight tubes

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Almost straight

    Not sure what my overall impression is, but I do love the layout as well as the straight tubes. I can't really say if I like or dislike those 45° elements specifically. :eek:
