    Hello guys.:cool:

    You never stop.

    Meanwhile we also start with this work.

    This is my personal PC that I have decided to revisit and that I will do in time scraps (I have to do other modes too).

    It will simply be called R2.

    Meanwhile I leave you with some dated photos to let you know what it was like.

    Stay tuned.

    Well, let's start with the configuration that will not change (for the moment), but it's always nice to see it.

    MB: Asus Maximus VII Hero (Z97)

    CPU: Intel I7 4790K with delid (from 4 to 5.1 GHz)

    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 16 GB (4X4)

    PSU: EVGA Supernova 1300 G2.

    SSD: Samsung 840 Pro 256 GB.

    VGA: 2X 980 TI (sli configuration).

    The cooling parts with the description will be seen later on.

    Here's the photo.

    Stay tuned.

    Well, let's start with the first step.:cool:

    The first thing to do is review and build a new front at 900 D.

    It's still a work in progress, because I'm building it as I get ideas.

    Even in this work I navigate without a project, and realize what passes my head.

    A glance at materials and creativity makes it a master.

    The front will have to accommodate 3 Enermax TB Silence VR fans that I have modified to illuminate them.

    This change is necessary because the fans in question have no lighting, but they have both performance and aesthetic requirements that I needed / needed.

    For what concerns the most beautiful fans I've ever used in my fashion.

    Then we'll see in detail the change and the result obtained (there will be a video, a bit long, but for those who want to see it is very interesting).

    NB. I would like to emphasize that this modification will not only be done for the last 3 fans I've taken, but it has also been done for all the others.

    All over 17 TB Silence VR.It's a great job.

    Having said this (and I apologize for the long premise), let's come to that.

    In these photos we will see the front panel that has a thickness of 1 cm, and after doing the measurements of the case I practiced the holes for the fans.

    I used the Dremel with the compass holder and its cutter.

    This is the result.

    Stay tuned.

    Meanwhile I made the designs of the relief parts that will be applied on the front.

    Stay tuned.

    Well guys are back.

    As promised in time scraps I managed to carry forward the 900 D front.

    In this photo we will see the first test offset of some of the parts that make up the front (there are still pieces).

    NB. The parts are still rough and must be finished.

    We will also see the detail of ROG textures (but customized to my taste) on some parts, "engraved completely by hand ....."

    Stay tuned.

    Flap open.

    The pc looks like on a workshop deck.

    In these photos we will see the first test positioning of the front.

    3 steps: Mounting the fixing brackets after drilling and threading, original frame repositioning and frontal positioning.

    Detail one of the supports.

    Stay tuned.

    Well, let's go ahead.:dremel:

    The parts that make up the front have been finalized.

    In these photos we will see:

    Preparing and drilling for I / O pushbuttons.

    Manual stencil drawing and cutting for frontal backlighting (when the front will be painted,at the embossed parts will be applied additional stencils with the final graphics, and the embossed parts will have the final backlighting, following the photos understands well the procedure).

    All finished parts ready for painting (later you will understand even better what has to come out).

    All the parts in detail (NB: be careful to the engravings of the ROG texture, modified and designed in according to my taste,and in the detail with a dirty black, you see the result).I still remember that the engravings were executed completely by hand.

    Stay tuned.

    First steps painting of the front.

    After placing the stencils, 3 hands of opaque black on all sides.

    The pieces are still to be finished (a lot to finish) but you start to see the very aggressive muzzle of R2.

    Stay tuned.

    Bad story disassembling a mod made ...

    Meanwhile, however, came the material for the new side and not just ...

    I'll have a lot to do with gluing.

    I see the cover of the MB I / O panel in processing.

    Stay tuned.

    And here's the MB's I / O panel cover on R2.

    A day of work between the making of the pieces, engraving and gluing.

    But it still lacks work to finish it.

    Later, designing this simple stencil at accurate measure for the backlight of MB's I / O cover was a real nightmare.

    The stencil must be in a precise position and be matched with precise measurements and distances (there is no margin of error in the preparation before painting).

    I had to bring it to the software a draft made with a pen...

    Stay tuned.

    And here's how the MB's I / O panel cover appears after the first painting phase (obviously it's about to be finished because it's still raw).

    NB: I apologize for the dirty paint hand, but I do not use the gloves because I lose sensitivity and control of any tool.

    Let's get to see the setting of new flats as well.

    In the photos we can see the first stages of machining and the first pieces in evidence (everything is in an embryonic state yet ...)

    Stay tuned.

    Work on the sides continues.:cool:

    A very complex job, I have to be very precise and adjustments are not counted, tested and rescheduled dozens of times ....

    In these photos you are beginning to see the revised side.

    If you notice I split the cover in two parts, the front piece has the new design but remembers the previous one.

    Stay tuned.
