    Update: First carbon practice

    3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM

    [​IMG]

    Yesterday been playing with the carbon film

    [​IMG]

    To test my skills, I have coated my classified block with the film
    before

    [​IMG]

    And after

    [​IMG]

    Also my Supreme HF coated. Again before

    [​IMG]

    And now with carbon look

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Put everything on the motherboard

    [​IMG]

    Also did the laptop

    [​IMG]

    Just kidding

    The waiting is for the materials now, but luckily I have some stock
    For the radiators I’m gonna make a sort of bracket, from beginning to end of the case, at least on the visible side

    [​IMG]

    other side gets an open area for cables and other purposes
    Piece of iron plate with the angle to cut

    [​IMG]

    Round edge marked

    [​IMG]

    Cutout for the psu

    [​IMG]

    And here the custom plate, perfect fit

    [​IMG]

    Opening made for the radiator, so that you don’t see the mounting holes and just straight to the air intake of the sidepanel

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Sidepanel on it

    [​IMG]

    Rear intake is gonna be closed and the whole will be covered with carbon

    [​IMG]

    That’s it for today.
    Bye bye

    Nice 2 360 rads, My project if I ever get the case will need 2 psus and 4 rads, But then I crunch numbers for S@H. But then I'm putting together a PC w/6 GTX295 cards...

    If this is anything like your HAF X it will be absolutely amazing. Are you planing on leaving the case exterior black, or having it painted?

    Also, one other question....with the two rads at the bottom, will they be fighting each other for air space. I see you have both rads pulling air in from the outside and exhausting in the case, with them being in such close proximity to one another will this present and problems with the overall cooling and or the longevity of the fans.

    Yes, there are some things from the HAF-X that I want to do in this one
    The idea is to do the side panels and the front plate with carbon film

    I tought about that and the psu is gonna be placed horizontal, that gives me above the psu a air outlet (hope this is the right word for it) and I'm placing in the midplate two fans with a nice cover, blowing air through the case into the lower compartment.

    Update: Front plate

    Fortunately i’ve received some products this week, modding time !!!
    To place some hdd’s put the hdd bays together

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    To get this build a little over the top I’m gonna put in 3 BP hdd coolers. A while ago I had two from L3p bought for a future build, but this is the perfect case for the coolers. So This week i’ve bought the third. L3p Thanks man!

    [​IMG]

    Later on hdd's underneath with some support at the sides

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The bay is accessible and gonna be placed like this

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And i’ve used an old piece aluminum panel that I had left after a window cutout ........ never throw something away

    [​IMG]

    Draw some Lines for the jigsaw

    [​IMG]

    After some sawing and filing it already starts to take shape

    [​IMG]

    Adhesive tape over it to see how it is going to be

    [​IMG]

    And tried without tape

    [​IMG]

    After that the slot for the slim-line DVD-RW

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then put the plate on the upper and lower bay cover with

    3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape #4010

    [​IMG]

    And put everything back

    [​IMG]

    But not finished yet ....... missing something.

    I ordered some yellow acrylic. Really a gamble because no pictures were there of the yellow color
    But fortunately it is just the right color that fits with my yellow sleeve

    [​IMG]

    Made some french fries

    [​IMG]

    And made the yellow lines in the slots of the hotswaps. Don’t have to be open because the water cooling. And the yellow lines will come back more often in this build

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And the remaining three hotswaps finished

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Imagine the front plate with carbon film (vertical straight lines)
    And finally a hardware exchange. The Classified goes out the to a buddy of mine, he was in love with the carbon blocks. And I got an nice opportunity

    Rampage III Extreme

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    With EK full cover block

    [​IMG]

    This will also be covered with carbon;)

    That's it............Grtzzz

    That little bit of yellow on the front looks awesome. I think you're a little crazy with your 3 HDD coolers, but they're cool looking. Cool stuff. That's pretty crazy that you got a near perfect color match there, you should go gambling with that kind of luck.

    I loved the TJ11 when I first saw it, and I have loved Kier's previous mod. This is gonna be an amazing project.

    So easy to adjust :clap: I think Silverstone has done a great job.
