nice start and subbed
Ah, Yeah! This is going to blow all the other XPS mods out of the water.
For replacing all the dell razor-metal.
Thank U Waynio
Thx Imersa ^^
Thanks Cheapskate ^^ someone had to do it
Small preview already did a part of the cable management.
It is going to be such an amazing finished build
Just finding this build really refreshing. Cant wait for more
You've let yourself loose on this (sorry, these) cases and I love what I've seen so far!
Looking forward to the next update.
Must admit, have always loved these cases.
This one really speaks to my art deco side. Subbed.
Nice artwork and I like how you have the same mechanisms for opening the side panel.
Lets hope so Tim
Thank U Imersa ^^
Thank U Noob, these cases have a timeless design like the Tj07 imo.
Thank U Egami
Thx Hero1 Dell should have made a standard of it.
Epic work man! A guy from my work has one of these. I told him I want it if he ever upgrades. this is a treat to watch!
The XPS has met perfect Modder! ...this will be awesome when it's finished
Thank U Bill
It has bin a while when I showed my face around here.
So Time for a Update !
In the preview I already show U the 24pin cable, now its time for the cables for the GPU.
The colors from the MB didn't really fitted with the rest of the theme that I was planning. So time to change that to.
Next up was making my own pcb for the power/eject/light button.
To get a nice look for buttons I got my self a aluminum bar
With this as end result simple stylish buttons.
Atm the glue is getting hard when that is done I can start the prep work for the painting the front.
Short video about the change I made for the DvDrom
Till next Time!
Time to continue this project now that my previous mod (Eden) is finished.
I would like to tank Nate from E22 for supporting this project with a custom made windows and reservoir.
Got my self 40meters of purple teleios sleeve. This color will fit better with the coolant color then MDPC sleeve. Will have to change all the purple cables that I already sleeved.
Just need 1 extra window for my sidepanel
Over time my idea of the front changed. just to refresh your mind this was my first idea for the front of the case.
As you can see, the first idea still far too many openings so you can still see what is behind it. So I would like to avoid this and am therefore I created a new design.
This was it again, thank you for following.
I missed the start of this. That's so lovely detailed work on that looking forward to more..
one question. If you are using 2 together , does that make it a Dell 1440?
Wow, love the design on this one!! Subbed!
You sir, are an artist! And also one of my favorite modders, thought it couldn't hurt to let you know that
Great little bit of progress. Look forward to more
Yeah another update been waiting for long !
Lol Bulldogjeff, but I only used the second Dell for extra spare parts
Thank you Bartacus.
Thanks Ianovski, Iam honored your work is also to admire!
Haha yes it has taken some time but now it is time to finish it and enjoy the hardware before it is outdated.
It has bin a while when there was a update. But it doesn't not mean that there was no progress.
Change all the purple sleeve with the sleeve from E22. This color fits beter with the coolant color.
Then I polished the reservoir.
Made a HDD/SSD Bracket that can be installed behind the motherboard.
Started to cut out the top window and reservoir. And completed the copper loop. The pipes will be sanded polished and nickleplated.
This week the package arrived from Parvum System
They made a new set of windows for the case.
Made the cut out with a jigsaw and cleaned the borders with a file and sanding paper. With this as result.
Test fitting the windows.
Now the only thing that need to be installed is the PSU/GPU cover
