    The back panel of the case will need a cut out in the same size as my mountain. This because I want to keep the chassi as slim as possible with the closes acrylic to fit in that space with the led strips.

    I printed the model on A3 sized paper and taped it together to get the proper outline. I attached it to the backside and used it to jiggsaw the right shape.

    Here we go!

    The radiator will still have like 75% direct air flow throughout the perforated section, But as the radiator will be fitted with a 40-50 mm gap all air will easily pass through the vents.

    The back side acrylic sheet closes to the chassi got the "sky" painted in a light blue color. As the acrylic is diffuse/white this back painted blue will leave a soft color to view at the front.

    I've decided to not have any lights in this section and also don't want any light to sneak out here.

    My second revision foot was printed in grey and needed a bit of surface treatment and black paint to keep up to the same level as the other parts.

    So the mounting procedure is done in a special way to get as stable and possible without any unessesary visual screws.

    I've attached a laser cut 4 mm thick acrylic ring to the bottom of the foot as the ball bearing turning plate builds approx 10 mm.

    Then I'll attach a second acrylic to the wooden plate/foot and countersink the turning plate a few mm into it for perfect fit.

    The entire front of the case will be covered with opal - white back painted acrylic. A job that took me alot of time measuring and drawing the case and its components.

    I then laser cut all pieces after my drawings and had them painted. Here on the picture with the blue protection still on.

    I also decided to design the covers to be single cable passthroughs for all my sleeved cables. It will look tidy and minimalistic with short cables just entering the acrylic.

    The sponsored SSD from Plextor is a PCI-E version with integrated M.2 SSD. My layout makes the PCI-E SSD placement tricky and not that clean. So I decided to use the M.2 straight on the motherboard and mod the SSD heatsink instead. I cut it down to a sleek shape and will use it as a cover for the PCI-E riser cable instead. Gonna look pretty #### cool [​IMG]

    As this mod will be an art piece I will use alot of mirror acrylic to put a new look on things!

    - Radiator cover

    - D5 pump back

    - CPU block

    - PSU cable shroud



    Here I'm cutting the radiator cover. I always try to implement my logo and design into every piece of my mods.

    Will look amazing with the protection removed!

    Final assembly!

    The best part when all parts come together and form what you have been working on for so long!

    There's much details to show but I will keep that to my final pictures!
