Amazing project, love the design! and also 5 stars!
this is a great build so far. Way to go down a different road with it. The lighting on the front is going to look amazing once you get it dialed in. Keep it up.
This project is really amazing, your front panel looks perfect in the case's design.
Really nice thinking with the case. Good job!
Whoa so much replies on a thread I havent updated for so long..
Thanks nate, hopefully the interiour will be just as good.
I did overkill in my previous build and wanted a bit more plain case this time
Thanks for the great compliment ry@n, I actually spend alot of time thinking how to get it too look factory made, not always easy with basic tools.
Thanks, not sure if I should keep the leds just plain white (Which they are now) or if I should swap them with RGB leds..
Thanks ziza, I had some spare tubes from my previous build and noticed they had the same depth as the original front of the case. even width wise they fit like a glove, almost to good to be true.
Thank you sir
I hope to get back to work on this case next weekend and have an update for this thread too
Update! We need update!!!!
Been a while again since the last update, but despite the lack of updates I did get some work done on the case
I've installed the PSU
Cut the hole for the window. This is only the bottom layer of the sidepanel, there will be an aluminum panel on top of it which will make the actual window shape
Filled holes in the plastic part of the front and sanded all the plastic to P2000 to get rid of the structure that was in the plastic. It's now silky smooth and ready for paint
Cut holes in the radcover for the fittings
Started on the backpanel for the mobo, it's made out of 2 aluminum pieces with a piece of 5mm plexi sandwiched inbetween
Almost 4cm of room behind the backplate, plenty space to hide cabling, tubing, etc!
And I've got some new hardware, I've won this awesome set in a casemod compo on a lan a couple of weeks ago (with my Inverted build)
Both pretty blocks
But the Supremacy is my favorite
That's it for now, I promise to update soon again
Looking really good! I would have gone with the LTX but i'm a sucker for copper. lol
Did you stick with the original sidepanels or have you made some new ones?
Thanks Crapman Sidepanels are the original ones. They're made of plastic and normally have a thin aluminum sheet on them, I removed the sheet and will replace it with a 1mm custom sheet
Wow, whered this one sneak in from
Get's my creative juices flowing every time! And now that I see it again... Aluminum bars... You just helped me solve an airflow problem that's been confounding me for weeks
Glad to be of service
Disclaimer: no Cookiemonsters where harmed in this modsession...
Of course not, the Wifeosaurous Rex would make heads roll
Excellent work so far, my man! Can't wait for the next one!
I still can't get over how well you executed the rad and front fascia
really liking this one, and the inclusion of your logo.. top class!! me likey!
Very nicely done panel.
I'm very happy how the panel came out. Now I need to figure out how I'd want to finish it... either brush it (no idea how thought) or get it painted.
Bought a mobo for this build, didn't go for a super high-end board, but instead went with a midrange board with a good value for money ratio. So I got a Gigabyte Z77X-UD3H
Then I raided my girlfriends bathroom closet and stole her nailpolish remover (=Aceton) which I used to clean the caps on the mobo
Eversince the sleevejob for Inverted I hate sleeving with a passion... In this build I want to minimize the sleeving needed, so I came up with this for the 24 pin ATX connector
It's mounted on the back of the mobo backplate, and the ATX plug lines up with the ATX plug on the mobo (a miscalculation of a few mm unfortunately) Up next is making a plug to connect the ATX to the mobo
This is stunning! I love the sheer metal stealth and cleanliness of the build!
Sweet idea for the cable shroud man!
ZOMG!!! Love where this is going man!! Keep up the great work!
Thanks guys Pretty happy on how it's going so far
Last night I assembled all the parts I have so far it's and it's starting to look like a complete case again:
