Welcome everyone to my first ever case mod, and first custom PC build. Excited to see how it turns out, as I will be making it up as i go along. This will be a gaming rig primarily with some ML work on the side. The main PC hardware so far: Case - Phanteks Evolv Shift X Mobo - Asus Z390-I mini-itx motherboard CPU - Intel i7 9700K Corsair SF750 power supply Palit RTX 2080Ti Watercooling hardware: 2 x Hardware Labs Nemesis GTS 280 Heatkiller 4 GPU Waterblock Heatkiller tube 100 DDC Reservoir Alphacool XPX Nylon CPU Waterblock This has been in the works for about a month now, wasn't initially putting up for all to see, but i decided that as it's my first time in such an endeavor, the hive-mind will help me with any noob errors along the way. The case: The first thing that i've learnt so far is that the Shift X is a beautiful case, but an absolute pain to work with. The layout is a bit odd, and seeing it in person, I can easily see i've got my work cut out to fit everything in for the watercooling. Getting the easy bits out of the way first, the mobo got some deglamourising paint work to match the theme Next up was trying to figure out how to get the power wiring to be aesthetic. There's a tiny cable tray between the base of the mobo and the bottom half of the case, but that had to come out, as there's really not much covering anything. I decided that rather than hiding it all, will have the wiring exposed, in a style i will refer to as 'Hardline Wiring'. I went with the quality sleeving by MDPC-X. Was in two minds about the whether i should introduce multiple gradients, but decided on all Natural White for now. Here's a preview of where i've got to so far. Custom cable sleeving is quite the tortuous exercise, but i started so i gotta finish. Nor will any ready-made sleeving / extensions work in this case. What do you guys think? Stay tuned for further updates once i finish the sleeving for power, gpu, fans, LEDs and SSDs.
