    Update!
    So it has been a couple of weeks since the last update and i have made some progress during this time and i have gotten all the components for the build aswell.

    As you can see i have started to put together the first version of the case to see if all the measurements lined up etc and there was some minor misses that i corrected in the cad later on but it was mostly fine.
    I have started to print the final version of the parts so in the next update you will see that and perhaps some cable making.

    As always, if you have any question feel free to ask me either in a DM or in the comments.

    Thanks to my sponsors for making this possible

    Mini update!

    Todays project was to get the cables for the fans sleeved since the ketchup and mustard cables wasnt doing it for me.

    These fans has two additional wires coming from the hub which are use to connect the included fan controller. Since im not going to use those or the included jumper for the connector i cut them off and jumped the connections on the hub instead to minimize wires.

    I have more stuff to show in the coming weeks so stay tuned :)

    Update!

    After i sleeved the cables for the fans i decided to make some covers for the back of the fans instead of the stickers.

    Next the GPU shroud and fan needed a makeover to fit the theme of the build. I think it turned out quite nice, what do you guys think ?

    I also decided to delid my i5 8400 to improve thermals and noise. Im well aware that the CPU is locked and this was done only to improve temps and noise since the GPU is mounted so close to the CPU cooler. The temps dropped from 84-85C to 64-65C in Aida64 after 20min.

    Cya!

    Update!

    Time for the next to last update for this project. Im currently doing the cables for the build which is basically the last thing to do.

    Since the last update a couple of things has happend. All of the parts have been painted and in the end i went with a copper base with a white crackle paint on top and it looks really good :). The LEDs and power button has now been mounted aswell.

    Next update will be the finished build! [​IMG]

    Time for the final pictures! I hope this project has been interesting to follow because its been a blast to build. This was my first but not last project involving my 3d-printer so stay tuned for cool stuff in the future. This build be exhibited at Birdie LAN in Uppsala Sweden so if you are going to attend come by and say hi.

    A good great example of using in-case visibility (clear case walls).
    Can't help but think the paint effect looks - to me, at least - like polystyrene packing. Just an observation and not meant to detract from your endeavours in any way.
