    Today a couple of strong images! No mercy for the poor 500D ...:naughty:

    Removed the external cover panels, let’s dismantle the frame up to bring out only the essential components.​

    Cut, drill, disassemble. Repeat.​

    Now that everything has been reduced to the bone, let’s begin to install the first custom component: a nice plexiglass back panel.
    Oh, if you thought the power supply plate could save ... well, you’re wrong. :lol:

    New week, new updates!:naughty:
    Here's the motherboard support and the front panel that will also act as a tank for the custom loop. The new structure begins to take shape!

    Reinstalled the power supply cover and first custom panels applied, waiting for the top panel that will cover the structure completely.

    Hey there! Time for a nice update

    today we take a look at the wonderful STRIX Z390-F Gaming, maybe the most suitable motherboard for our mod thanks to its design.

    The custom waterblock finally appears, waiting for the complete custom loop, ready to light up the stage.

    Stay tuned for the next update!

    Here we go again guys! Time for a huge update!

    After some initial images of the finished structure and part of the hardware that will be installed inside, here are other interesting goodies like RGB fans and a beautiful RTX 2070 Strix! Completed also the cover for the power supply and start to see the first wiring of our HX 750i, all strictly custom and with brand new dedicated cable comb.
    Stay tuned tomorrow for another big update!
