    Well guys here we are with another mod.[​IMG]

    This time it is a "minimod" based on the famous banquet 103 of Microcool.

    It will be a mod exclusively focused on aesthetics since it will not have important hardware.

    That said I wanted to test with very few resources to see what would come out.

    I leave to you as usual the judgment on my work, hoping that this worklog is to your liking.

    As always...

    Stay tuned.

    Very well.

    Meanwhile, let's start with the first photos of the material for the cooling and assembly of the EK wb that will cool an I3 4160.

    Well let's start with the first pieces.

    In this build I decided to start by doing a complete cover of the MB.

    The walls will be fixed to plexi strips secured to the top of the banquet.

    Here the first steps. (Later we will see the development).

    Well let's move on.[​IMG]

    Once the chassis is done, you need to make the cover.

    Here's what I studied.

    Stay tuned.

    Here is the construction of the cover psu.[​IMG]

    The cover psu consists of several parts that can be dismantled, and combined with a bulkhead that will serve as a backrest both for the 5.25 bay and the side facing the front of the banquet, and which will close the psu on that side.

    Later you will understand better how the whole is developed.

    Stay tuned.

    Very well.[​IMG]

    Let's go on with another photo of the progress of the work.

    Here we will see the cut on the top floor of the banquet for the passage of the 24-pin MB.

    We will also see the assembly of the internal supports of the armor of the MB for the support and fixing of the led support surfaces for the backlighting.

    Finally a small preview of the assembly of rigid acrylic pipes.

    Stay tuned.

    LEDs ...... many LEDs.[​IMG]

    In these photos we will see the maze of LEDs mounted inside the armor of the MB for the backlighting of the closing cover.

    We will also see the preparation of the sides of the bay from 5.25 central always for the backlighting.

    Also on the sides of the bay as we had seen before (construction phase), backlit covers will go.

    Stay tuned.

    Detail of the finished side covers of the bay from 5.25.

    Front panel for closing the fan controller housing.

    Stay tuned.

    And here we are at the end.[​IMG]

    These are the last pictures of the building.

    In these photos we will see the construction of the rad grid completely done by hand and its assembly.

    We will resend shortly for the final photos and the video presentation of the finished mod.

    Stay tuned.
