    First of all it is my first thread on this forum so I want to say hello to all of you, my name is Michal and I am from Poland :)

    But let's get down to the business, shall we ? :)
    As you already saw from the thread title project is named Frost Orange. The name of it comes for two things, "Frost" comes from white color to which case will be painted and from the "frosted look" of the hard tubing and cpu water block. Orange simple for the main color scheme of water cooling loop ;)

    Spec of this build is as follow:

    CPU: i7 7700K
    Mobo: Gigabyte GA-Z270X-DESIGNARE
    GPU: AORUS GeForce® GTX 1080 Ti Xtreme Edition 11G (if everything goes well, they will be 2 in SLI ;))
    RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum Series Limited Edition Orange
    Zasilacz: Seasonic PRIME Titanium 850W
    SSD: HyperX Predator 240GB + Aquacomputer kryoM.2 evo PCIe
    Obudowa: Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX
    LC: Alphacool

    At this point I will start from pretty heavy mods on the case, first of all I will cut top and form panels on CNC to improve airflow of this case. After that I will disassembly nearly the whole case because I will make it an reverse (inverted) ATX, so I will create a completely new mobotray + psu shroud form aluminium, this will also improve rigidity of the Evolv.

    P.S I want to also huge thanks to all of the companies that support this build which are: GIGABYTE, AORUS, ALPHACOOL, AQUATUNING, PHANTEKS, CASEKING

    Some photos of the equipment that I already have in place :)

    Most of the major mods are done, now I need to test fit all of the stuff inside for some measurements for custom cabling as well for the overall loop design and probably some other small adjustment act :)
    Photos before powder coating :)

    Vents looks nice, really dig the design pattern!
    Also, very nice texture on the powder coating - a vintage beige would have been fun though :lol:
