    Hi All! :rock:



    [​IMG]

    Now im modding my TJ11B-W, prepare it for watercooling stuff and better cable management.
    I hope to finish this stage at oct/nov 2014. (custom parts, 560x60 and 360<45mm rads installed)
    Main colours is black aluminium/powder coated steel and stainless steel, cold white lightning.
    Some kind of black sleeve/hard tubing later :worried:

    [​IMG]
    I call it "Anniversary Edition"

    Hardware

    CPU: i5 3570k
    MB: Asus z77 Sabertooth
    RAM: Corsair Vengeance 1600C9 LP 4x4Gb
    GPU: NOw i have only 660GTX 2Gb and i really want to change it.
    SSD: Kingston V200+ 60Gb
    HDD: WD Caviar Blue 1Tb x2
    PSU: OCZ Modxstream 700w
    CF: Scythe Glide Stream PWM 1300rpm

    So it will be a few "mod packs"

    :idea:

    1. Midplates
    2. Mount Stuff
    3. Top Mod
    4. Other


    1st - Midplates!
    [​IMG]

    1st of all - midplates!
    The only thing which will help me improve cable management and allow to install 360rad with good aesthetics.

    1.1 - Vertical inside midpalte [VI]

    [​IMG]

    The Grills - 1.5mm stainless steel and polishing.
    [​IMG]

    1.2 - Horisontal inside midplate [HI]

    [​IMG]

    This will be a mount system for 360rad and help me to get a better cable management.

    Preview:

    [​IMG]

    2nd - Mount Stuff

    [​IMG]

    Really need to do this to get enought free space for aesthetics and watercool.
    Also i will get a custom rad holders/shround.
    Now only one thing is done - it's a HDD Cage/Mount :sigh:

    The design:
    [​IMG]

    And:
    [​IMG]

    It can hold 1x120mm fan and 3x5.25 HDD trays. It mounts in 5.25 bay of TJ11.

    3rd - Top Mod

    [​IMG]

    As you can see it will be an I/O panel LED light up (cold white).

    [​IMG]

    Sorry for LQ video and bad english :waah:

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YKdqZR90izo

    And some kind of simple control panel for lightning:

    [​IMG]

    Already done steel panels, but still dont get good enough vandal buttons. :wallbash:

    4th - Other Mods

    [​IMG]

    Not so many to do here, just window mod and button replacement.
    And front panel wires cover, logo, etc:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I will create some simple PCBs for control panel and better cable management inside 5.25 too.


    All hardware which you can see is my old hardware, i can resleeve PSU, replace MB/CPU or other things. Also i can change many till it's not ends. :confused:

    I hope all works fine, my first worklog on this forum.


    Next update - 2 grills and vertical midplate :lol:

    Splitter will do 3 things:

    1 - Main lights on/off
    2 - 2nd lights on/off (i wanna do 2 LED strips, maybe 2 different colours)
    3 - for I/O panel LEDs

    Don't ask why and don't see at wires and tubing.
    I will replace everything, also got some EK HD fittings and acrylic tubing.

    About coolant - probably it will be something from Mr. Bane
