A good tease here : Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I can't show what's going on inside right now, sorry. wink.gif Also, I'm worried that I'll be experiencing the same problem as what golfergolfer had on his build. The space between the GPU block and the left side panel, but I'll do some magic on it to make it work. I might need new shorter PSU as well. If you are going to ask me, measuring is the hardest part on this mod. Everything needs to be exact especially on placing the I/O shield at the back. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

That is quite a good tease I must say >.< I agree the cutting parts the water cooling and everything isnt that hard it is fitting everything in and getting the perfect measurements... I am curious did you make the bends in the old backpanel? or is that a secret rolleyes.gif

Right, I'm running out of space for the HDD and SSD already. Same for res too. That aqua computer combo is pretty HUGE for this case. Might just implement it to the design for at least I can do something else instead of mounting it anywhere inside the case. biggrin.gif There are no bending needed for this. Keep watching til I get it done.

Nice teaser...I'll be following both of your threads closely tongue.gif

Hi,

I just joined to stop by and offer/share some things I have found doing my own Prodigy MATX Mod log here : - http://forums.overclockers.com.au/showthread.php?t=1057257

My solution to the drive space issue is to cut 2 metal rails and mount them along the length of the right side that way I can mount 3 x 3.5 HDD along the rails using the mounting holes on the bottom of the drives i.e. open the panel and see bottom of the drives with connectors pointing towards bottom of case, I will post pics in my log over the weekend as I do this.

As for the GPU clearance, I will be using EK-FC CSQ Bridge, profile is lower then most and I plan to cut the bottom side panel rails on both side so PSU can push up to edge and Mobo tray can move across more, GPU blocks should then clear.

For a Res and this hasn't been finalised as yet but I plan to mod and mount an XSPC Single bay res as the window, I plan to use color dye (Aurora/pastel) and a shape in the side panel for interest, looking at your Mod as it is currently, have you thought about a custom res using the plexi side panel i.e. something like cyberdruids waterfall side panel would look great IMOP and you obviously have the skills to pull that off based on your previous log entries.

Good luck hope some of this helps at least to get the brain juices flowing.

Regards

Brian

Hey Brian, thanks for stopping by and welcome to OCN btw.

I checked you log and so far it looks really great. For my HDD and SSD, I have a plan for it already so nothing to worry about it. As for the GPU, I still need to test it out to figure out the solution for it.
I like your idea for the res, but I got the stuffs already and I don't think I'm capable on doing those kind of mods yet. I'll keep checkin out your log mate. thumb.gif

Thanks for the kind words, I think you underrate your skills a bit, that being said everyone's got a vision and it's best when you pull it off they way you want it, your build so far has been great, I regularly check for updates, have big plans for tomorrow's update hopefully back plate apart from PSU mount will be cleaned up and finished making it look much less ghetto, and the drive rails will be mounted, I am currently waiting on parts to confirm my GPU mounts will work and PSU mount, will chime in once parts arrive and let you know if it works, but as it's currently Friday night here in AUS won't get parts until next week.

The more and more I look at this thread I begin to realize your putting together my dream build... The hardware is exactly what I want, the case is what I want, everything. This just got soo much more interesting now @brainf1971 I might have to use your rail idea for the drives thumb.gif

thanks mate. This is absolutely my dream build as well. Cant imagine i would end up with this. Initial plan was a budget htpc and just quench my thrist to modofy a case. When you gonna cut the back plate for the i/o shield?

also, for those whos sending me pms about the custom back and mobo plate, i cant give you any answer about it regarding the price and if i am willing to make one for you. I have to finish it first and make sure everything will work fine inside. I promise to give you an update after and consider your demand for me to make more for sale. Thank you.

UPDATE!!!!

Regarding the issue of space between the GPU block and side panel. I cut out a little piece on the case. It's really a small thing, but a big help to add more space for gpu and panel.

I cut it out so I can move the PSU a bit more to the side where it will be mounted.

Here's the result:



Not sure if I will have more updates tomorrow. I missed two packages today. mad.gif
Thank you guys!
