Fantastic, sending this to MDPC!
Haha thanks Stark love the kitty ^^
I've been lurking modding forums for a few months now, but felt that I had to sign up for an account just so i could post and tell you how absolutely amazed and impressed I am with this build.
It is flawless ... You have great artistic feeling living in perfect unison with a highly technical and functioning design. The level and quality of your work is top notch, the best I've ever seen. So much so that I have to ask, what did you use to cut your case with? obviously a hand power drill/drill press/various hole saw cutouts were used for your circular artistic touches, but for example when cutting the mobo tray and the hard drive cage etc, what did you use to get such perfect cuts? They look laser cut they are so nice....
When i've pondered the idea of a completely white build in the past, i thought that i would look plain, but this is anything but plain, totally changed the way i look at modding, your project has really had an impact on me, thanks for taking the time to post such a detailed and instructional log.
PS, your pics are great too, must be a nice camera you're using,
Nice metalworking. How long did it take to cut and file all the pieces?
the front plate's and the GPU covers are made by lazer cutting machine so i think that it takes around 10 to 15 min maybe
The rest of the parts are all hand made lets say that it keeps you busy when u have noting else to do ^^
LOL..... It looks like an imperial walker from star wars.
Thanks for the the comment Airboren
it is really a pleasure that my build pushed u so far to make a account here on the forum so u could post in my build log
For the tool that i used on the motherboard tray was a electronic jigsaw + a drill to make some holes and when i am done whit those tools i start with the files and sanding paper.
And for the HDD bay i use manual jigsaw (else the plexi would melt) + a drill and then the same steps i did like the motherboard tray
The Camera i am using is a Samsung NV24HD
Lol idd ^^
GPU Covers are ready to be painted.
I finished off the top cover with some plexi and a led.
Not much to tell about then showing u guys some pictures ^^
Started with plexi by cutting the right shape that i needed the i frosted 1 side of it.
got a few stickers from work with me very handy ^^
On the back side of the sticker is some kind of aluminum foil helps spreading the light true the plexi and also helps isolating the light that it docent shine true the back
Led in it
Front plate over it.
Dont mind the color it changes all the time depends on the water temp
Then doing it all over again for the GPU cover.
Mounted it on the GPU
Connected the led on the motherboard (HDD activity)
Short movie of the light (click on the picture)
Cya next time.
This thing just gets better every time I see it...Looking really good dude.
I agree, the copper pipes are wonderful!
I love the copper pipes, but with the silver fittings im not so sure. You thought about painting the copper chrome?
He said he was going to get them coated in nickel. Really cool project.
Ahhh missed that one... my bad
well then that WILL look awesome.
Nice work with the lighting, looks great.
Thanks Bulldogjeff nice to hear that.
Yep i hoop that i will be done very soon ^^
Thanks painting the GPU covers now at work so at the end of the week il have a extra small update ^^
GPU covers are ready and mounted on the GPU
And a very nice night shot of the white logo.
The up coming weeks well be very busy. To get the PC ready for Gamescom
There is still a lot to do like. Making window in site panel painting the case installing extra leds + some other random thing i forgot to tell u guys.
All this needs to be done before 18 of August.
If i can arrange transport to Gamescom i will everything in my power to get the case ready to show it on Gamescom
This weekend i disassemble the case so u could get the case ready for the painter
As result a room full with hardware an WC parts
Cleaning every part of the loop
The case still needed a window
Yesterday the case was moved to the painter. he said that the case would be done this week
I also have to do a little tweaks on the GPU's installing some leds + mounting the cover plates
Connected the 2 card together and placed them back on the motherboard.
I also tried something new with the power cables of the GPU.
Lights on !!
And the end result of all this bring a very messy room
I love the woven look of the GPU powe cables, nice touch.
