    Helloooooo Internet! Thank you so much for checking out my new case mod, Project Royale!

    This will be my second major case mod, this one inside of the In-Win S-Frame, consisting of mods which I have not performed on an S-Frame before. I am looking forward to getting started! The color scheme will be Black, Blue and Gold, as I will be showcasing the original finish of the S-Frame, which is the best finish I have ever seen on a case.

    Now, let's start off with some specs:

    CPU - Intel Core i7-5930k (Received)
    Motherboard - Asus Rampage V Extreme (Received)
    RAM - 64gb of Corsair Dominator Platinums @ 2400mhz (Received)
    GPU - 3x Asus Geforce GTX 980ti Strix OC (Received)
    PSU - EVGA 1000G 1000W (Received)
    Case - In-Win S-Frame (Received)
    Cooling: TBD
    Control: Aquacomputer Aquaero 6 XT
    Lighting: Aquacomputer Farbwerk

    I will be liquid cooling this monster, but I am not sure what products I will be using. Stay Tuned!

    Mods:
    - Relocate Power Supply to main compartment by creating custom plate
    - Install 480mm Radiator in original PSU compartment
    - Create Mount Plate for Dual D5 pumps, which will run in serial.
    - Create cover plate for HDD Bay Slots, then mount Aquaero to this plate
    - Cut hole for cable routing
    - Custom wiring for all wires
    - Create cover plate for front I/O (I am not too sure whether or not this will happen, depends on how easily I will be able to sleeve the USB 3.0 wires)
    - Drill passthrough holes for pipes
    - Find something to create more space between the rear glass panel and the back panel of the case, so that I will be able to place pipes back there

    Now that all of that is out of the way, let's get to some photos!

    Some renders of the project: (These were based on EK Blocks and Blue Bitspower Fittings, but these are not final)

    A couple pics of the 5930k. I purchased it used, so it still has a bit of TIM on it.

    There's something about 8 DIMM slots filled with Dom Plats that gives me an immeasurable amount of satisfaction.

    A crap ton of accessories are included with this board, it's insane!

    Now I realize these aren't 1080's but I got them at a killer deal, so I GUESS these will have to do...

    This shot is to really show off the beautiful finish of the case, with Brushed/flat black and gold accents. I love it so much I am going to keep it!


    Here are a few shots with the hardware loaded up...

    Why would you go with 3x 980 Ti's when the new 1080 has been released??
