    Hi!!!

    After looking for a new case with a lot of frustate ideas, I go to make and build my case.

    I like some cases but all have some problem or don't like some point. Looking in Google I look EK Vulture, and I decided built case like this with my modifications.

    Now I'm drawing in CAD program...

    First I put components with my taste.

    Option A

    [​IMG]

    Option B


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Problems...

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Ram waterblock do interference with push-pull option...

    I decide built Option A and I started yerteday to draw some sketches for frontal case...


    [​IMG]

    Now, some 3D pieces modelings with frontal option decided.

    Front cover (Acetal 7 and 10 mm with frost white logo):


    [​IMG]

    Back plate cover (aluminium 2 or 3 mm):


    [​IMG]

    And last, sktech for mount:

    [​IMG]

    Tomorrow I will draw back case.

    Kind regards...

    I'm still working on parts , settings , etc ... it is no small feat and design all the pieces fit , but above all, make sure everything is fine, since once made ​​the piece can not go back.

    In another topic. As you know I'll put the inverted plate , that is, rotated 180 degrees, my question is related to the block RL . In theory having an input and an output by default and a position on the motherboard , either . So far so perfect, but in this case the plate is rotated , if the block is placed in normal position ( as a plaque in his normal position and not rotated ) , I'll have some cooling problem ?. So you understand , well , block 180 turned over the plate, as if the block put it upside down on a plate normally installed.

    Kind regards

    Hi

    I was finish the reservoir support. It wasn't perfect, but I don't want spend much time, maybe I will do some tick to do good quality. It is very solid, more than I thought.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I gone fast and crash...

    [​IMG]

    When I finished support I know that I done bad drills with wrong position, I do new drills and correct this without problems. Now are reversible...

    [​IMG]

    Now, I used fittings and adapters but I have pipe to install and look wich is more beautifull

    That's quality workmanship on that reservoir support. How'd you get such precise cuts by hand?
