Hello Guys I have been working on this build in my spare time over the past few weeks as I needed a workstation as my main gaming rig is not finished yet and my last finished one GT3 RS has been sold due to an offer I could not refuse. I have been using a test bench as my daily driver and it had to be sorted so I wanted to create a moody and dark PC to suit the MSI X99 SLI Plus board and this TJ07 was the one I used last year for my Red Candy PC it had been an empty shell with need for stripping normally I would take a case and have it dipped in acid but I wanted to do all this myself for that extra bit of pride knowing the toil and hours of work are worth it .. Then I took it round to my friends powder coating shop and had it done in a nice matte black the internals did not need stripping or new finish just a clean up as I knew a steel mid plate will be going in and I am not using the optical rails. The MNPCTech Feet also got coated they was a little worse for ware and needed some love you can also see the Cooler Master Silencio PWM fans which are very quite and seem to have good Static Pressure . So this project has been kindly sponsored by The Specs: Intel 5820k MSI X99 SLI Plus 980 GTX Samsung SM951 256 GB PCIE SSD Crucial DDR4 2400 MHZ 16 GB (Ebuyer) Crucial BX100 500 GB SSD ( Ebuyer Seagate 4TB Surveilance HDD (Ebuyer) Silverstone 750W Strider Gold PSU with Black Cable Set Silverstone TJ07 Cooler Master Silencio PWM 120mm fans X4 EK Waterblocks for CPU . GPU, Fittings , Radiator Aqua Computer Aquatube MNPCTECH Case Feet E22 Ultra Clear E22 Laser Etching So 1st thing was making the new mid plate this was a piece of 1mm thick steel picked up at B&Q drilled and riveted it for that industrial / moody look I was going for in my head Got some of the old Caustic Soda out for removing anodizing .. Pump is braided and mounted ... The rear panel was a Pulse modding one the threads on the PCI brackets were shot and I had no option but to drill them out and use a nut and bolt ... Some Hardware shots next .... MSI X99 SLI Plus .. From SilverStone Next some Awesome E22 later Etching ...... I took some more of the 1mm steel etch primer then matte black and took it over to E22 HQ and then this .... Riveted again The HDD and SSD with the drain tap down below Cables at the back So next we have pics of the assembled PC so if you do not want to see yet ..........................................................................
