    Hi all!

    Its been a while ago since i posted on bit-tech! Alot has happened with me and my project called Stealth. I got the new Cooler Master Silencio 652 for reviewing and when i was doing that i fall in love with that case. So i ported the plans from Stealth into this case where i will continue the Stealth project. But since there are alot of changes i thought it was better to create a new topic for the build, which is now in stage 2. Say hello to Stealth MKII.

    More news. As you may have seen, this topic is started by the name ZdMods, thats right. I'm now doing mods under the same name as Meelobee. We already spend alot of hours chatting about builds, thinking of cool stuff for eachothers builds and teamed up at his place for a mod day. Then we decided to join up and bring out some cool stuff under the same name. I made a rebrand for his (uhm, now also mine, haha) logo which you've probably all seen already on facebook or here.

    Ok, nuff said, lets go with some more info on Stealth MKII.

    Previous build-log: Click

    Hardware:

    - Intel Core i7 3770
    - Gigabyte GA-Z68X-UD4-B3
    - 8GB Corsair Vengeance lp
    - 2way SLI Asus GTX 660Ti
    - 2 x Plextor 256GB M2S SSD's
    - Custom loop with the Cooler Master Eisberg

    Some plans:

    Since i love the outside of the 652 this mod is going to be all about the internal.
    I decided to cover up the inside of the case with clossy white acryllic. The acryllic will also receive some cool vinyl stickers to spice it up. Next to the mobo will be a tube res for awesomeness. Currently thinking about a BP 150 tube res or a XSPC Photon 170. What do you guys think?

    Sleeving will be done with the all new Teleios from e22.

    For now lets do some photo's of the current state of Stealth MKII. :rock:

    Oh, and the green on the acryllic is just a protective layer! Its gloss white like i mentioned earlier.

    Hey Guys!

    First of all, all the best wishes for 2K14!

    Ive been doing some design work for the decals on the mid plate and the psu side part. When they are done they will be machine cut by Plakjesuf. Oh i love vinyl decals!

    Also in a dilemma for the reservoir. I'm liking the Bitspower POM 150 tube reservoir and the XSPC Photon 170. Currently my preference is the Photon 170 res. The coolant that will be used is probably Mayhems ice white.

    Please let me know what you think of the decals since they are not done yet, so i can take some feedback of you guys in the design if necessary. The colors used for these decals will be Matte black, glossy black and red.

    Cheers :)

    Hi Guys!

    So tonight i modded some more. Made some extra holes here and there so the routing of the cables. After that i just felt like: "PEEL OF ALL THE PROTECTIVE LAYERS!". So thats what i did, then did a test fit with mobo and gpu's. Mobo is just a demo motherboard, will be using the Z68X-UD4-B3 later on.

    Let me know what you think. I think its super sexy, and there is so many more to come!

    Greetz!

    Hi there fellow modders!

    I received lasercut plexi parts for my rad grills last friday! So I glued them together and here are they! Firstly they were designed for Stealth MKI, but in this new setting they have been a bit changed, the base color is now white! last photo contains some laser cut stealth logo's!

    The CM Eisberg is also put apart and I added the new fittings on it and assembled fans and grills on the rad!

    I also received a package from Cooler Master with some JetFlo's (white led) in it! Very nice fans and they fit the build and the grills very well! Thank you Cooler Master!

    Sleeved some more, the 24pin BitFenix extension is resleeved with Teleios, and also the sata cables are sleeved in black now.

    And oh, I ordered my reservoir today, and she will be delivered tomorrow! I went for the XSPC Photon 170! Very stylish and I think it will fit the build very well. Lets stop the talk and go on to the pics!

    * The 120 grill is as nice as the 240, but there are some tape remainings on the corners from holding in place when glueing them! Forgot to take it off for the pics! *

    Thanks buddy! I'm glad you like it!


    Cool to have another follower! Thanks for the compliment!


    Thanks mate! Yea Sander made them, we designed them together in black for Stealth MKI, but they weren't made yet, since MKII has a white interiour I traded the black for white.

    Thanks man! That's the purpose! :D


    Thanks, I'm glad you like them :)


    Received my reservoir yesterday, the XSPC Photon 170, oh it's such a beauty! Tonight I need to finish up some decal designing so I can send them to the company that provides them (plakjesuf). After that I can mount the reservoir and the build will get more shape :D

    Hi Guys,

    I thought lets post a small update for you to begin your weekend with!
    I received the XSPC Photon 170 reservoir, and it looks amazing!
    Now I ordered the custom decal set I designed, have to wait for that one, will arrive next week!

    Now, on with the new things!



    So, I crawled behind my macbook and designed a drilling template so I can drill perfect holes for the reservoir. After it was finished, I filled my printer with a sheet of A4 sticker paper to print

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Hey Photon, whatcha doin'? Nothing, just hanging here, being cool!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Sleeved the third GPU cable, I need one more!

    [​IMG]


    And I'm ending this post with this shot of the Stealth MKII:

    [​IMG]


    Note: the 24 pin is a bit messy, please forgive me. Need to order some stuff @ E22 (CABLE COMBS???) so that will be better!

    Hope you enjoyed it, and cya next time!

    Very good looking build dude!!

    Can't you avoid the reservoir if you are using the CM Eisberg waterblock/mini reservoir/pump combo?
