Guerilla Scout

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hi all! This will be first ever case mod. As some of you might get confused, this mod is not sponsored by Gigabyte so you won't see one of the latest enthusiast class mobos named coincidentally as Guerilla. =)

Anyway, my plan was just to rotate the mobo tray 90degrees. Similar to Silverstone's Raven series or the FT02. I will have to warn everyone that this will be a learning process for me as I have no experience with fabrication, cutting, etc.

components:
i7 920 D0
Rampage 2 Gene
6Gb Corsair Dominators
XFX 4890 XXX
Corsair HX850
CM Storm Scout

Watercooling:
Swiftech Apogee XT Rev.2 (sent back my full nickel supreme hf as I got scared)
MCP35x Pump with Rev.2 Res
Koolance CU720V 120.2 Rad
Scythe GT 1850's

Modding Tools:
Hammer Drill, which I borrowed from my uncle
Dremel 300 with FlexiShaft that I don't even use
3 Files from ScrewFix
Hand Riveter from Screwfix too
Ruler that I for what's it called. something with a water game as my wife described. From ScrewFix as well
Measuring Tape
WD40
2 C-Clamps
A piece of wood that I found on my landlord's garden.
My wife's desk used as a workbench or just clamp stuff to be cut
The Case was also used as workbench when I was some of its parts apart.(not a workbench anymore as got kinda flimsy without the sidepanels)

That's all I have as materials. I wanted a drill press and a bending brake but can't afford it or just no room for a workshop. I'm still learning anyways.


I'm just gonna summarize what I've done for the past 2 mos. This was initially an entry for the CM Casemod Competition but I didn't make it. I lacked the skills and also the confidence that time. So Instead I put the build on hold and admired at other people's fantastic creations. So without for ado. PICS!

Before:























Imagine how flimsy it's gonna get. I might have to reinforce the case after this but I don't know how, yet.


















I initially planned to use the MATX mobo tray I got but I changed my mind. I might build my next upgrade on this case.










I intended to mount the PSU in the front but didn't have the proper cables. I bought an angled one the it was angled to the side that it blocked the bezel.


Wanna see moar pics?

you could use some aluminum L profile to reinforce it

Thanks guys. As a reward for viewing..









Test fit the loop too. I couldn't find a pump mount that will fit 140mm fans so I might screw it on the psu grill with a thin/wide spacer, it's ziptied for now. Also decided to mount my psu, made brackets. I will try to upload those next time but you get the picture here.


Phobya compressions on the Swiftech Apogee XT. Tight fit and the rotation is limited to less than 270 degrees, sufficient for most loops.


I'll try to upload more pics tomorrow. Time to sleep. :yawn:

I need to figure out a way to mount the pump, I really liked the Pulse Modding mount but too bad it wouldn't fit the psu. I might fabricate an adaptor but not sure if it will be stable enough against the vibrations. Currently it's just ziptied.

If you have had it running, could you comment on whether or not their was an increase in thermal performance for the graphics card? It would be interesting to know, thanks! Good to see a fellow scout modder, check out my log if you get a chance
