    Here I am once again with a new and special project for the year.
    The engineering is still on progress but...With of your advice, I am quite sure to get the best possible result.
    First of all a special thank to the sponsors that are right now supporting me in this mod

    Corsair for having supplied me for now the case to start the mod
    [​IMG]

    and drako.it
    [​IMG]

    Let's start.....
    here the wonderful Corsair case before getting dissambled

    1) When i started to open the case, you may see the high case quality, by the numerous anti vibration rubbers on every installed vent and both upsidedown the HD slots.

    A little progress...
    For the moment let's start to postion a three-fan radiator 360 BlackIce GT Slim

    [​IMG]

    At the same time i prepared the cut rectangles for the slot-boards on the new port-slide of the Mainboard, do not care about the scracthes this is just a test board...i already prepared a thicker one....from 3mm you can see in the photo to 5mm for toughness motivations beacuse later the load on it will be higher and i don't want any bending on it

    [​IMG]


    I just received my new Evga X79 SLi directly from Drako.it ... i choose this board for its qualities, the layout and colours of the mainboard.
    Now i can continue with my measures and positioning etc...
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here for the first time i can show you my new logo which will identify my mods... nothing particular, i'd say quite simple

    [​IMG]

    so, I started to modify immediately the mainboard

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I remade the bottom of the Mainboard port with a plaxi 5mm thickness... i bored it to let pass the cables...not satisfied yet, i made some small labels to cover partially the hole... here you are....judge please

    Looking good! :thumb:

    I like the EVGA cover plate. I would just be worried that no air would be able to get under it so the cooling fins could do thier job, overheating it! :)

    After being awhile for a long time..... I can right now post the photos i took of my work quietly to can explain the progress steps.

    [​IMG]

    Here we can see the internal front entirely covered with a glassy window to make it appear as elegant as possible, everything crafted with my trusting Cnc!
    on the flank i covered the wires with a white board keeping them hided as I could .....obviously the internal is concave...

    [​IMG]

    In this View we can notice our hexagonal grid customized with the "Corsair" Logo with a sober and simple style!


    "sorry for my english"

    My goal in this case was to eliminate the exceding tubing and wires to make it "cleaner". now there is only to swicht on my Cnc and start working.

    [​IMG]

    on the flank i was doing some tries with "blu fluid" from feser just to have a look at it.

    [​IMG]

    I'D call it "cover", later we will see how it will be like ! ! !
