Been quite busy the last few days having time off work in order to be able to finish the mod for the competition.
Started with some motherboard raisers, was gonna machine them in aluminum but then i found this nice red Ø20mm plastic bar. Not the right red but they won't be seen after its installed and it's so easy to machine in plastic.
First i machined them to the right diameter
Drill and tap
Test fitted the pumps and the rads to check for clearance issues
This looks a bit weird, but its in the middle of the case. Had to cut some space for the cables from the psu, this should be enough.
All sanded and ready to get glass blasted
Glass blasted and ready to be powdercoated
It looks a bit uneven but its smudges from me fingering it, i didn't see it but it shows up in the photos, will clean it off before the final shots!
Radiator box, or whatever you would call it
Rear side of the same part
And some final shots of the case itself, I really like the way it looks and glass blasting the acrylic made a really matte finish which hopefully will hide the single leds and give an even light throughout the acrylic.
Still need to cut slots in some of the acrylic to be able to install all the leds.
Also need to make something to hold the GPU's in place, i know what i want now so I just have to fabricate it.
Stay tuned for more updates
