    Introduction

    Hello everyone, I have always been thinking about creating an account here at Bit-Tech but I never got to it. I have been browsing around here many times but never made an account. I have been over at XS for a long time and some of you might have seen me there. But now it is finally time to join you over here!

    And I thought, what better way then to do a build log here! Hope I am welcome here and that you will enjoy the log! :)

    History behind the design:
    About 5 years ago I decided that I was going to water cool my computer. Back then I had a Antec P180, not exactly the perfect chassis for water cooling your components. I looked at a lot of different chassis but I was never really happy with any of them. So I started sketching on my own design. First they were really awful, but as time progressed I got better and better at drawing. Early drawings was in MS-paint. I then moved on to Google Sketchup and finally Autodesk Inventor. I have probably gone through about 30 different designs until I finally decided on this one. This will be my first custom designed chassis and it will also be my first ever water cooled system!

    Goal:
    To design a chassis specifically for water cooling that is able to handle high-end components and still be quiet. And at the same time have a clean and stylish look that does not get old after a few months.

    Progress
    #1: Planning and Designing.
    #2: Constructing Parts.
    #3: Assembly of Chassis.
    #4: Completing Chassis.
    #5: Water Cooling.
    #6: Components.
    #7: Modifying
    #8: Installing and Testing.
    #9: Finishing Touches.
    #10: Final Pictures and Summary.

    Specifications

    Nice work! Just be a little less... detached and professional, and you might get more comments :)
    i personally hate it when it seems more like a journal than a log.

    Thanks! Its really nice to have a good set of machines. Some of them are more or less only good for really big stuff.

    Thanks for the feedback! I really appreciate it! I know what you mean, Its a bit cold and detached right now. I will try and work on that! Maybe I should just use normal text instead? That makes it much less "professional" at least :D

    Right now there are catching up posts. But after the next post It will be "live" or what I should say. Usually I am in the workshop all day and when I get home I edit the pictures and present them this way.

    It's now "live" :D

    Next step is to sand everything down with 240grit paper and then glassblast everything. It will be interesting to see if I can manage to get an even surface :)

    Speechless. It's everything I've been looking for in a case. I'm really jealous of the tools and toys you have available :D Subscribed!
