post #1 of 43
Thread Starter 
Seeing as I have been here a while (2009) and dont post (i tend to read mostly) here's a little back ground on me. Ive been building systems for 18 years started with PII and early amd (still have my first K2 cpu on shelf) systems. All have been custom for myself and others. Typically these days i build gaming and media production systems. i've built a few hackintoshes as well as some hackbooks. mods typically been paint and windows along with some overclocking and the usuals. All that being said...hello everyone. Now without further time wasting...the first of my current builds. It will be my daily driver for video and audio edits at home. This project will be a hodgepodge of new and old parts.

The Case


The Motherboard



Motherboard test fit



The plan is to cut a side window and and opening for the side mounted radiator fans so that the fan grills sit flush with the side window

similar to this (i made a quick photoshop from pics)

How the side panel will look complete


here is the planned layout. It is almost to scale (again photo shop)
i will remove the existing had bay to create my water cooling area.

My case has gone topless!


so it begins. i've removed the hd cage. My radiator brackets are on the way. I've swapped the brackets on the motherboard for prethreaded units in anticipation of my new water blocks. My color scheme will be white outside black inside i'll be using primochill lrt advanced elegant white 3/8 tubing. tubing and monsoon fittings will be ordered next

I've wiped the mesh down with thinner so its time to paint.


I've also sanded the outer panel and top so they get paint tonite as well
