    Greetings to all again.[​IMG]

    Waiting to finish the worklog with the video and the final photos of the Prototype Mechsuit we start with this extreme on a Cooler Master Mastercase Maker 5T.

    Hardware:

    MB: Asus Maximus X Hero.

    CPU: Intel Core I7 8086K Limited Edition (delidded).

    GPU: Asus Strix GTX 1080 TI.

    RAM: Geil Superluce 16 GB (8x2) 3000 MhZ.

    PSU: XFX Pro Black Edition 850 W 80 Plus Gold.

    M.2 SO: Samsung NVMe SSD 960 EVO 500 GB.

    HDD drive storage: Western Digital Caviar Black 1 TB.

    Cooler (only CPU): Asus ROG Ryujin 360 (in push / pull configuration).

    Fans: Thermaltake Riing Plus 12 (1x3 pack) Thermaltake Riing Plus 14 (1x3 pack) with software control via bundled USB control unit in both packs.

    Made the premise with all the hardware components we immediately start to see the photos starting from the components in their boxes (which we will see later in detail)

    For the first pictures of the beginning of work I would say to leave with "all the way".

    Completely disassembled the 5T Mastercase Maker 5T.

    Meanwhile, we see the preparation for the cuts of the air intakes of the front and top that will undergo drastic changes.

    I anticipate immediately that this case being in sight will be modded from both sides, then further difficulty of realization given that the wiring must be invisible except obviously the sleeves and little else.

    Stay tuned.

    First step progress.[​IMG]

    Finish the openings on the front panel, I made the supports for the flaps.

    You already notice the extreme aggressiveness that this mod will have.

    Ultimate air intake openings also on the top.

    Realization with cutting and shaping of the metal honeycomb grilles for the front and top.

    I work very complicated given the many facets of the original plastic covers.

    All made completely by hand with shears and clippers.

    Stay tuned.

    Update.[​IMG]7

    Realization of all the covers for the internal lining and the panel on the back that will serve to completely hide all the wiring.

    In the photos we will see the phases of realization of the covers starting from the test assembly of the MB and the VGA to see the overall dimensions and the exact position of all the slots for the cables.

    Also worthy of note is the realization of the VGA support bracket which weighs an accident and a half and hung slightly in the test pre-assembly.

    Then we will see all the parts made, finished, satin and ready for painting always in pre-assembly test.

    NB.To the wiring as you can see a niche has been created of which the rear panel / cover is an integral part, dismountable if necessary for all possible interventions and on which a relief cover will be made with the ROG eye and the Mayan pattern with tangential backlighting.

    This particular will not be the only one (then we will see the details and the realization).

    Still a lot to see and a myriad of custom parts still to be realized

    Stay tuned.

    Considering the cost of that AIO, why didn't you go for a custom loop? That fan under the pump cover is also extremely loud and annoying.

    Look forward to seeing how it turns out regardless... :)

    Work on the wiring cover continues.

    In these phases we will see the pre-assembly of the test and the first phase of painting with the application of the stencils with the ROG Eye, the Mayan pattern and the creation of the theme line of fluorescent orange color.

    We will also see the final arrangement of the led strips for tangential lighting.

    Soon we will see the cover completely finished.

    Stay tuned.

    After having dismantled the mb tray and the midplate (all riveted with absurd joints) for the modifications with the dremel for the passage of the cables, I repainted the pieces and then I reassembled them.

    Performed this work I practically realized the covers for the entire interior, which includes the cover psu and all over-cover with tangential lighting.

    To make sure that there was the front cover of the cover psu and that did not bother the tempered glass partition, in practice I had to shorten the midplate and apply a new support bracket in aluminum as you can see in the photos.

    Finally, after testing the Ryujin 360 (cpu cooler) I created the internal airbox.

    We begin to see the extreme aggressiveness of this mod.

    Stay tuned.

    Those are not stickers they are cut with a plotter man. It looks like he is using them as painting masks.

    I'm really impressed by YG's designed parts, those vinyl "painting masks" are so accurate, I also think it's done by a plotter, but if it's cut with a hand-cutter...omg :wallbash:...that's just magic

    I have a Silhouette Portrait I've now had for about 3 years. It was relatively cheap and gets the job done, though is limited to A4. If you're good that doesn't matter too much as you can join patterns up quite easily. Besides, I've only ever had to do that once as most of it can come out as one piece. Just don't fall into the trap of buying their expensive blades. Get yourself a alu blade body, then buy the cheap blades.

    I have a Silhouette Cameo 3 and this is how I make all my painting masks, Its just so much more precise. I highly recommend investing in a cutter, it comes in handy more often that I care to admit. The software is free as well.
