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

All done!

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

Almost assembled

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

Back with a new update!

Finally decided to go with circular mesh, the hex mesh i got was only 1mm thick aluminum and was not stable enough. This is the color i went with, gun metal gray. Will make a slight contrast to the black powder coating.
Mesh.jpg

For quite a while I've been thinking about what to do for GPU supports, I've seen a few versions out there but nothing that would fit my mod. The biggest problem has been production time of something more complicated that i would have to mill or grind from aluminum. So when I finished another project of mine (homebuilt CNC router) I decided to put it into its first good use (haven't had time to use it since all my time has been spent on the case).

This is what i wanted but wouldn't have had time to complete without the router.

Test mount straight after milling all three parts.

Glass blasted and painted. Also countersunk one side and threaded M5 threads into the rear of the aluminum.

Close up of the support

Now you are probably wondering how i will physically attach the gpu's to the support. Haven't had time to see if it works but there is no reason this shouldn't. You mount it from the rear of the support so the tab from the GPU go between the support and the "extra bit" Then you just turn the screws to pinch the tab from the GPU to the support.

Also tried some engraving, my gf wasn't happy with the font, placement, size and basically everything, but I like it, It's about 0.5mm deep

Also covers a extra hole in the case, although this won't be visible when the motherboard is installed but still a nice touch smile.gif Still needs a bit of filing to make it fit perfect.

More updates coming very soon seeing that the mod competition ends in about a weeks time.

I love it! I'm so anxious to see how the acrylic looks with the LED's installed. The supports look amazing and I really like the signature you added. I personally love the font you used. Keep up the good work, looking forward to the next update! thumb.gif

Have started the assembly and luckily i tested the fans before installing them, anyone had the same problem with these fans?

Just took a short video of it

Had to assemble the case in order to figure out where to drill holes in the mesh, so figured i would try to take a photo of the leds going at the same time, took around a 100photos before my gf snapped these two. It still doesn't show off the real red but it is awesome in my eyes biggrin.gif This is as low as it goes, if i crank it up all the way u won't see the case. Gonna check with some ppl if there is a solution to get this right for the final shots.





Let me know what you think!
