    Little update today:

    Stick the foam band to isolate from vibrations between core tray/rear panel and also seperate/canalize differents airflows (GPU, CPU watercooling and PSU) to prevent mixed cold and warm airflow preserving hardware temperatures

    And that foam band will also hide screws between core tray and rear panel:

    I've also done oxydation. It's a very quick reaction (oxydizing, washing with water, stopping rusting process with chemical neutralizer, wash with big water again, drying and waxing to stop as soon as possible corrosion chain...).

    All that should be done very quickly, otherwise... :duh::waah:


    So, I wasn't able to illustrate it with pictures... It was impossible to be in two places at the same time.

    But the render seems awesome to me!

    Now, I'm waiting C14 plug and i will put all together, shake them and then, i'll finish this scratch build. Hope people that follow will appreciate it.. Show the reslult in few days.

    "This is the end, beautiful friend
    This is the end, my only friend
    The end of our elaborate plans
    The end of ev'rything that stands
    The end



    DSC_0891.jpg



    No safety or surprise
    The end
    I'll never look into your eyes again



    DSC_0897.jpg



    Can you picture what will be
    So limitless and free
    Desperately in need of
    some strangers hand
    In a desperate land



    DSC_0902.jpg



    Lost in a Roman wilderness of pain
    And all the children are insane
    All the children are insane
    Waiting for the summer rain
    There's danger on the edge of town
    Ride the king's highway
    Weird scenes inside the goldmine
    Ride the highway West baby

    Ride the snake
    Ride the snake
    To the lake
    To the lake

    The ancient lake baby
    The snake is long
    Seven miles
    Ride the snake

    He's old
    And his skin is cold
    The west is the best
    The west is the best
    Get here and we'll do the…"

    I think it's not so problematic as you mention, take a prestigious car for exemple, you know that the engine is gorgious but you don't drive the car with opened hood .

    As Dot says above.. love the finish.. but put a window in it!
    You've done a lot of work and it looks ace - but you've just hidden it all away! :)

    Thanks !


    But I'd like this scratch was modern, simple and elegant. It is not a tunning scratch, and personnally it's absolutly not what I like..

    I just would like componnents on the core tray looks floating between panels, that's the reason why everything has been hidden

    Windows are so common since a decade..

    But Thanks for your intereset and your message.

    Congrats Canard, with some screw covers it would look even cleaner, I like it with or without windows and it's flat :dremel:, you were fast too with the crafting process but you got help from your youngster :grin:.

    Thank you Jean !

    My boyz helped me for sure, they have slow me touching everything every minutes, but my build was very simple. A great part was already done in 2015 (cable sleeving and management,water cooling loop, etc). Those past few weeks were more about shell and finishing previous 2015 scratch. And to be honest, I don't really care about little detail and I like imperfections that give some charm.

    I keep following your scratch. Good luck to you and hope you'll be the MOTM !

    Good luck
