    Hi all!

    Happy new year to everyone! I am starting this 2018 with a new project :D

    Based on a CT eSports, "Project Hyacinthum" will be based on a light blue / alluminium color theme and will feature a complete custom water cooling loop with custom distro plates :D
    This will be the first casemod I realize with my new CNC router so this will be also a test mod realized entirely by myself and not with the help of an external company :D

    I surely have to thank Cortek, a cool company based in Italy, for supplying me the chassis plus the PSU and rainbow programmable fans
    Give their site a visit at:http://www.cortekesports.com/main/index.html

    But now.. it's time for some starting pictures! Look at beautiful and well realized is that case. I love the colours and the materials used are really really good :D

    [​IMG]And this is what I am currently working on :D Completely accurate 3D model made with solidworks, to design the new plate I will be using for this mod.. for me is something like a challenge with myself, testing the new router with something not so easy.. but.. you will see later :D

    [​IMG]
    For now this is all!
    Stay tuned and feel free to ask everything you want, I will try to answer your question!
    Oh, and if you want to stay more and more update, visit my fb page and IG account in my signature:D

    Thank you all!

    First renders are done! I designed the case in solidworks and rendered in keyshot :D

    I am now ready to design the new mobo plate with integrated reservoir!

    Stay tuned!

    Cool looking case :thumb:

    Can you tell me where I can get those fans from - a bit of googling and I got nothing :worried:

    They look like generic Chinese clones. I'm pretty sure Hyperon is a misspelling of Hyperion which is a name Thermaltake use.

    Well, Thermaltake uses that name for another product that is something completely different by those fans! But I am not here to talk about these things, I am here only to show you what I love to do, modding :D

    Anyway, honestly idk where you can buy these from abroad, CT eSports is a local italian company I met some months ago at a local event :)

    Talking about the mod, I added a few details to the render :D Now I am ready to start with the real mod :D

    Oh, I also shot a video to that awesome case! Check it on my YT channel:

    It's definitely an interesting case, but it feels like the accents were added to a stock square case instead of being integral to the design. Lots of fancy fit and finish, but they missed dressing the folded edges of the blue.

    Hi guys :D

    Planning is the key!
    Removed the original mobo plate, designed the new one and made a wooden template to manually draw the channels before passing everything in CAD..

    Stay tuned!

    Hi guys!

    We are now entering in the best part of the build :D
    My new CNC router is ready after some months of work and I started milling the wooden test mobo plate :D

    Stay tuned for more updates and fitting tests!
