nice one ! subbed!
the photos are looking spectacular Richard...
Update: First carbon practice
3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM
Yesterday been playing with the carbon film
To test my skills, I have coated my classified block with the film
Also my Supreme HF coated. Again before
And now with carbon look
Put everything on the motherboard
Also did the laptop
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
other side gets an open area for cables and other purposes
Piece of iron plate with the angle to cut
Round edge marked
Cutout for the psu
And here the custom plate, perfect fit
Opening made for the radiator, so that you don’t see the mounting holes and just straight to the air intake of the sidepanel
Sidepanel on it
Rear intake is gonna be closed and the whole will be covered with carbon
That’s it for today.
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...
Nice job on the rad install and I love the di-noc carbon fiber on the blocks
This is going to be EPIC!!!!! Awesome looking blocks! Was that difficult my friend?
You are crazy my friend..........6x GTX295
Thnx, didt it al for nothing lol, Had a nice deal for other motherboard yesterday.
the Asus RE3 also with WC block, but i'm gonna do this one also
Hi AnG3L, Not to difficult later on i'm gonna write a little tutorial
for the blocks and the panels
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
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!
Later on hdd's underneath with some support at the sides
The bay is accessible and gonna be placed like this
And i’ve used an old piece aluminum panel that I had left after a window cutout ........ never throw something away
Draw some Lines for the jigsaw
After some sawing and filing it already starts to take shape
Adhesive tape over it to see how it is going to be
And tried without tape
After that the slot for the slim-line DVD-RW
And then put the plate on the upper and lower bay cover with
3M Scotch Clear Mounting Tape #4010
And put everything back
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
Made some french fries
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
And the remaining three hotswaps finished
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
With EK full cover block
This will also be covered with carbon
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.
Sounds good....saw your recent post and this is looking EPIC! What material did you use to make the french fries?
Thank you, I know the coolers are a bit to much.............but I like it
Was really happy with the color
Thanks, used the acryl in the picture above
Wow, this one's come on a lot since I last saw it! Looks like it's going to be a water-cooled monster
I really liked the french fries. Nice accents.
bloody beautiful.. this is gonna be good!
I loved the TJ11 when I first saw it, and I have loved Kier's previous mod. This is gonna be an amazing project.
Ok, I subbed. Happy now?
Thanks, have vacation now so can make a lot of progress these days
Lol, the idea came from a facebook pic from Mnpctech
I think so yes
I must admit, I thought it was a nice case..............now I'm loving it
So easy to adjust I think Silverstone has done a great job.
Finally............Why did it take so long?
Subbed! Just stumbled on this and I like the idea
