Worklog: 800D White, Black and Red

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Hi

Welcome to my second worklog. The first was a TJ08-E and can be found here.

I am currently running a Rampage 4 with 3930X and GTX 590. It is in a TJ11 and I was keen to attempt a build in this case, but felt I would first try an 800D as there seemed to be less modding required. Plus, given what an amazing case the TJ11 is, I wanted some more experience under my belt for touching that bad boy.

This is the plan:

I had originally planned to WC the RAM and Mobo as well but I decided against spending another few hundred of dollars for aesthetics.

I had thought of a green build but for some reason I decided to change to mostly white, with red and black highlights, probably due to the colour of my mobo.

Anyway, here is some of the gear that is going into it.

Ok getting started. I have decided to use a white 3m Di-Noc carbon fibre film for the 2 side panels and a couple of accents:

Getting ready for the side panels. I was actually really nervous about this as I haven't worked with any 'wrap' since textbooks in high school, and well, if leftover in my house need glad-wrapping, it's up to the missus as I am completely useless.

This stuff was fantastically easy to work with. Air bubbles were very easy to get rid of due to the channeled/rippled nature of the film.

Have worked a little with the carbon fibre film and done some basic accents. Admittedly they don't look perfect but overall I'm pretty happy with the result.

Also began an annoying search to find appropriate washers for the passthroughs (as the holes are too big) but was able to find some at an automotive store. Have spray painted them and the washers black to match the theme.

The fan controller / temperature / flow rate monitor.

And now with the black faceplate to match the build. (apologies about the glare in the pic)

Flow rate monitor and water temp monitor.

Sleeving and cable management from MDPC. Thanks Nils.

Got bored so decided to carbon fibre coat the flow meter. This was going to go in the front bottom of the case with the pump, following the new design, but it was going to be a tight fit at best. Instead decided to place this under the graphics card and make a small feature out of it.

That looks really good! what did you use to cut the film and match it to the case window?

I don't think I will be using the bay reservoir due to my loop redesign. If anything it might go in for looks, but I will likely just sell it.

So I had everything I needed and yesterday I decided to get stuck in to the work.

Started by drilling some holes to attach the pump to the case.

542

This was the drill bit used for the fill port. Was quite nervous doing this as I did not want to bugger up the case.

385

Ended up working well.

674

Pump with tubing attached, ready to go in.

397

And in place. This was the first of many fiddly little jobs I discovered. Turns out the tight spaces can be a nightmare to work in. Luckily my girlfriend has small hands and was able to assist.

All cutting was done by measuring/marking first (obviously) and then used a simple Stanley knife (I think in the US they are called box cutters).

Looks nice! It's a bit hard to tell the carbon fiber pattern from the angle in the photos. I thought you just covered it in white stickers or forgot to peel a paper backing or something.

Nice! thumb.gif

I used a little bit of the black Di-NOC film - it is very forgiving to work with.
