New to Forum! - My First Plexi Case Mod

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello all, Ne0Khan here! I've know about the forum for a while but I just decided to join, Anyways...

I've been working on my first Plexi Case, I have the blueprints almost ready via TurboCAD

Plexi Case blueprint Via TurboCAD

I plan on using 120mm fan grills and mounting an RX360 Triple fan radiator to the top, with a positive pressure fan config for the rest of the fan mounts, I'm going for an overall red theme, I'm 17 and relatively broke as F*** so I'm contemplating looking into a sponsorship for the liquid cooling components, other than that I know I want a Gigabyte UD7 Mobo with an FX- 8350 (OC) and a Dual/Tri/Quad Crossfire Config.
With the best possible Radeon GPU's (most likely best bang for the buck).
And ether XSPC or EKWB clear water blocks and clear tubing with red coolant.
I'm Also contemplating getting a roll of Red LED's and making grooves in the actual Plexi for them and filling them with some sort of a clear ridged drying solution.
I'm not sure if I want to go with making drive bays out of plexi or showing off the hardware by mounting them bottom faced to the mobo tray.
CD/DVD dive bays are being difficult to figure out.

I wish you very good luck with this build!

I don't know where you are but here in England the best AMD card at the moment in terms of "Bang for Buck" is probably the 7870 Tahiti, which you can pick up for as little as £160 at some E-Tailers. I'd highly recommend looking at something like the GTX670 though - prices are only a tiny bit higher than the 7870LE but the performance is similar to the 7970 in most games, sometimes beating it.

I've got the NZXT 2M Red LED strip in my case. It's pretty nice, I like it because it's just a long sleeved LED cable, and it's got adjustable brightness.

Best Regards
Luke
