    Hi everybody and welcome to my newest log!

    This build is going to be based around the mighty S Frame,a case I have been itching to mod since it first released,thanks Katerina @ In Win NL for giving me the last one they had!
    https://www.inwin-style.com/en/gaming-chassis/S-Frame
    Im going for a mecha look this time using the same colour palette as LUMO but with the yellow as highlight rather than the dominant colour.
    It seems a shame to take drills,saws and files to such a beauty of a case but I have big plans...

    Power is coming from my trusty 1500w Platimax,about time it did stuff other than powering pumps when filling loops!

    Watercooling to come from EK of course!

    This one is a labour of love so it will not be a quick log and I do ask people comment,positive/negative doesnt matter,feedback is welcomed!

    Thanks to the contributors to this log,ASUS UK,EKWB,G Skill and the ever awesome In Win!​

    Someone skilled threatening to take a saw to an InWin makes me tingly. I can only recall ONE chop to a limited edition case at the moment, and that was a D-Frame.

    Nice one Frenchy!

    As usual,the actual silhouette wont change but the insides will. I will be doing stylized plum blossom cutouts with neon yellow detailing of a PCB nature. Should look cool once its done but everything is in boxes ready for my cross continent travels to EK in Slovenia in 2 days.

    My focus will be the MSI build for a couple of months but this will be getting love in my 'free time'

    After a delay,in which I moved to Slovenia to be part of EK's R&D department,here is a small update in the progression of my labour of love on this case....

    I wanted to keep the drive 'bays' for the 4x 1Tb SSD's so I had to find alternatives....

    So the I/O panel in the front was taken out,drilled, and used for the mount,around .5mm between the panel and the case!

    This puts the HDD out of view and still leaves room to suck the spare cabling into,there will be a little vanity plate covering the top and shielding everything from view.

    [​IMG]

    Lets add a 'one of a kind' EK Rampage V ED10 monoblock!

    [​IMG]

    And 2 500Gb WD Black HDD's which I had laying around,these will add a little surface detail,something that should go well with the mecha feel.

    [​IMG]

    And a 6900k? Go on then....

    [​IMG]

    And with the EK XE360?

    [​IMG]

    Yum! Awaiting the cable clips from Nanoxia so the wiring can be done,this is the next job on the list.....

    I don't think moving Mr. Magoo closer to his vodka supply is a good idea...

    He even gets a bed under my desk!

    Soon he will have a a penthouse with Jacuzzi and a minion carrying his nuclear briefcase.#

    I have a feeling he arranged Trumps win too....

    I don think moving Magoo near to his DPRK army is a good idea either....

    Blocks are nearly done along with the rads,I used LUMO yellow and marblizing solution to get the effect.....and like last time,I need a boat load of clear to finish them up. Luckily I have some awesome 2K clear to hand!
    Now I am just waiting for a nice day....

    Green blocks :eeek: Is this 'access to the fabricator' level fun, or are they doing a run of these?

    Also, I'm envious you could get colored plate thicker than 1/4".

    :worried: I started at the bottom. When I saw the backplate, I thought for a second you had made it out of presswood.

    Painted blocks: I feel cheated. :(

    I wonder what would happen if you tried this paint technique with hammer paint.
