Update coming today
IT LIVES. Proper update later but thought I'd put this up for now
Looks cool, are you water cooling?
It's not cool until it's water cooled...
I'll get my hat.
Air intake at the bottom, exhaust at the top?
Looks like you still need a hole for the back of the gpu heatsink. -If that's where it vents.
If you can find a spot I'll give it a go but I think that'll be for V2.
Yup. I feel like the stack effect is under utilised in modern cases so thought I'd try to implement it here.
Where the IO is? If so It's got holes there for the IO but those will be in the proper build log post.
Post might be delayed until tomorrow due to blowing up a PSU earlier but I think you'll all like where's it's at.
you can find a spot at the panel that is not on in the photo and put there the radiator, or you could try some slim fans and se the clearance on the top, the gpu tho idk if you could make the case like 3cm taller you hade the space that you needed to the radiator(s), but for an AIO i think in the top you can try to see if you have space
To make it talller I'd have to redo all the panels. On V2 I'll be making it bigger and fitting a water cooler in. Currenttly an AIO would interfere with the power cable of the psu
Looking good ML a smart use of space too! where did you get the cool little corner screw blocks from ?
Damm makes me wanna get back out into the shed again
Praise from you is great. It was you that inspired me to finally make my own case with your lightblade project.
@Maki role sourced the blocks for me. I need to redo a few of the panels as you can see my lack of skill showing but overall it works well. The gpu temps are perfect and I think I can fix CPU temps with a small noctua cooler pointing upwards.
cutee little rig
If I may say, those cubic screw blocks looks like Parvum ones:
They're very close but no where near the cost of the parvum ones.
OMG , you're right, I did not notice the price: : £44.99 for 10 pieces that's crazy
You have this ones, from the search i made it was the best prices that i found
If I remember correctly, he found them at one of the major online electronics shops.
I meant the part on the other end of the card, where they usually have exhaust venting. -But if this is just a ramp-up for a WC setup, let it be.
Build is done and everything works. Just waiting on the fancy pants pictures from creative and it will be all done.
Did you remove the masking, or leave it on for the Prius with a giant vegan bumper sticker look?
Super sexy shots with the plastic off coming soon. For now you'll have to deal with the naff shots I upload in a bit.
