Welcome to my latest project log, The project name i've gone for is "Crystal" The name and the whole concept is based on some new products that's coming/come to market this month that i'll be using in this build. The Game Rock 3080 from Palit is one of the inspirations for the theme. I like to try new things with every build and hopefully learn something new, so along with the usual painting, 3D printing and other techniques I'll also be using texture plastics and resin for the first time as the main 3D printing material. This allows for lots of clear detail and very solid parts when using the correct resin kindly supplied by monocure3d. The case i'm using is a Cooler Master MasterCase SL600M, mainly aluminium with a glass window on the main side. I plan to sand, polish, paint and try some other things with the aluminium parts and any plastic. Plenty of space on the inside for water cooling however, I will only be water-cooling the CPU for now with a Cooler Master AIO and might do a full custom loop when GPU blocks are available. Wouldn't be a crystal build without some Crystals, so I will be making some from resin and possibly standard filaments like PLA. The lighting is alway an important part of my builds, I'm not a rainbow RGB lover however I do love RGB for the amount of colour options it gives you without needing to replace all the parts when you fancy a change. Thanks to the timing of this build i'll be entering into the Case Mod World Series 2020 #CMWS2020. Hope you enjoy the build log and final result.
