Redbull Fridge for PaxEast2012 *Updated 12-4 Fan & LED board HOW-TO*

post #1 of 72
Thread Starter 
Hey guys I think its time for a new build!

This build is mainly being built for PaxEast2012 in Boston, MA in April.
My goal for this build is to land a company that would like to display my case at their booth, since I've never attended a convention based on games/entertainment etc. Ive attended mostly conventions geared toward the automotive crowd, I've helped build a couple of Japanese performance vehciles mostly STIs & Evos which have landed mostly 1st and 2nd place Best of Show/Best JDM, as well as covers of magazines such as Import Tuner and Modified.
My background is mostly automotive engineering with some knowledge of media design.

The design itself will represent me and today's urban industrial culture that inspires me to create a beauty.


My case will be based off the Case Labs M10 case

My previous build last year was a Corsair 800D which has been repainted with a flat black interior and matte white exterior.

First off I'd like to give a special thanks to the following:
Sponsors.jpg
Hank over at Performance-PCs.com has helped me on multiple occasions on finding the right parts to finish the job.
Mike at Lutro0 Customs has given me an abundance of help on designs and inspiration as well as tools.


The components of the build will be the following:
CPU - LGA 2011 (between a i7 3820 or i7 3930K)
Mobo - Asus Maximus IV or Gigabyte UD5
PSU - Corsair AX1200
Raid0 - Corsair Force GT 120GB
Raid0 - Western Digital Velociraptor 300GB
Sound - Creative & Astro
GPU - HD7000series
Water - Mostly EK, Swiftech & Bitspower fittings
Cooling - Scythe fans
Accessories - MDPC-x & Redbull.

Redbull?? Yeah I like Redbull, Ill be keeping the exterior a secret up until a point just to build anticipation.
Also since I've ordered a bunch of parts on what I expect to use/not use the rest will be given away as a Token of my appreciation to you guys :]


EDIT: For the first few posts I had the intention of using the New CosmosII case but due to a delay in release to the public I had found a better case which was the CaseLabs M10.

Since the LGA2011 boards/CPUs are not released yet I thought I'd show you some modifications I've done so far which doesn't require much because its just simple tasks that Im trying to get out of the way in order to prepare for the case.


IMG_3195.jpg
Samsung Bluray Drive

IMG_3188.jpg
Replaced the blue LED with a white LED (before photo with blue LED).

IMG_3205.jpg
Sanded with 220Grit and washed with warm soapy water.

IMG_3206.jpg
Applied two light coats of SEM self etching primer, then lightly re-sanded with 800grit.

IMG_3220.jpg
Applied three light coats of Rustoleum Flat Black (enamel based) left to dry over 24hrs.

IMG_3245.jpg
Applied two light coats of Krylon Matte Finish (acrylic based). (dont mind the sticker its just to cover the vent holes)


IMG_3327.jpg
My first package from Hank over at Performance-PCs

IMG_3330.jpg
Mostly ATX gold plated pins and 28AWG & 18AWG wire.

IMG_3275.jpg
Second package was from Nils over at MDPC-x.com (of course my daily motto is clearly written on his package).

IMG_3277.jpg
Now ill be using mostly Black & Red but my audio cables which I am modding right now will be sleeved in white MDPC sleeve.

IMG_3413.jpg
Now I did order one of these from a train hobby store (seems like what the PRO computer modders are using for their sleeve these days).

IMG_3423.jpg
Allows me to cut the MDPC-x heat shrink into identical pieces.

IMG_3419.jpg
standard size in todays sleeving world.

IMG_3424.jpg
Sold my original A40s and this came in the mail.

IMG_3425.jpg
My new A40 system!

Looking forward to your build.
I'm getting ready to build a new gaming comp myself and the Cosmos 2 is my number 1 choice atm.

Looking forward to seeing it progress.

Do you have a finished pic of the 800D? It looks like you are leak testing it in the pic.

Yeah I was going to go with the 600T but I saw Lutro0 had taken the case already, so I'm a little envious that he took wink.gif it but I have no doubt that he'll create something better than I had envisioned, luckily I did some research and found out about the CosmosII. My first case was the original Cosmos and the build quality is amazing.

Yeah I was leak testing it for 24hrs and after I finished the build a member on EVGA.com had to buy it, so I sold it I have some unfinished photos which are here.

I've been researching my build for 45 days or so now, and if the Cosmos 2 doesn't come our soon I'm thinking of buying the Cosmos S it is so gorgeous. If I went with the Cosmos S what would I be losing to a more current case like say the Corsair 800D?

I just love the lines of the Cosmos and keep going back to it in spite of it being a bit dated...

The 800D is oriented more for watercooling, there is very little airflow in the 800D and the CosmosS is more for air cooling.
the Cosmos 1000 is still a great case for both water and air.

Thanks for the info! (Didn't mean to hi-jack your thread)

Can't wait for more pics of your build!!!
