[Case Mod]Snow Raven - Page 3

post #21 of 33
Thread Starter 
hmm. i'm thinking that i might change the motherboard and cpu this month.
Instead of doing more modding.
I'm getting sick and tired of my amd as it has some faults with the llc that makes it impossible to clock "and it can't run arma3 for ****".
anyhow. i'm thinking of going with the new RAMPAGE IV BLACK EDITION.
that black board would look so sweet with all the white.

oh and ps. my dentist is the best. i had to get one tooth fixed but he had time for one more so he fixed the one next to it aswell free of charge.
And it wasn't as expensive as i feared so i can get some stuff done this month.

So. i can finally start work on the mod again.
I have Plexiglas in the mail and i can start work on the sleavings come next weekend.

When all that is said and done my dentist bill was/is a bit high "about 3516$ " but i think i managed to get a payment option on it.

I have been vary busy with a lot of stuff so sry. the mod ain't exactly going as planned.

Well i kinda made a lot of changes to the mod these past few days. "Got access to the workshop smile.gif"
After having my current hardware in the almost finished case for a few months i thought to myself that it could be a lot better.
Taking inspiration from other mods on this site i then made a plan.

Remove the motherboard plate and the disk assembly completely and remake it from scratch in the same color Plexiglas as the rest of the case.
Basically there's not much left of the original case but i think the end result when it is led led will be a lot nicer.

enough talk and lets see some pics smile.gif







As you can see i have decided to cover a lot of the interior up with 3 mm plexi in the same color as the frame.
I'm hoping this will add to the beauty if the final product. I'm gonna add dimmed white led's behind all the panels smile.gif

Another thing is that the case now can accommodate e-atx motherboards like the Asus rampage IV Black Edition "witch i'm positive will look super cool in this case"

I have learned a lot about working with Plexiglas so far.
For example having an assortment of file's and a good fine handsaw goes a long way in making good precise cuts and shapes while a dremmel can do some of the hard to reach areas.

I'm gonna make another post later today with my further plans including the design of the loop smile.gif

Here is some more pics smile.gif

i had to file and sand some of the plexigrass for a perfect fit with the black lists.


I also added the mount for the hidden disk drive smile.gif


with this i'm as good as done with the plexiglass fitting work.
Just need to add the holes for power and reset and add the fan grills to the front.
I would be done with this by now but the trusty old dremmel at the workshop draw it's last breath a few days ago.
So i'm buying a brand new one maj 1.

Looks good, the final vision render you did looks awesome!

I am a huge fan of minimalism, so the plain white exterior and bit window is an epic design.
You were right that I wouldn't recognize it, but will you be attaching the side panels with the screws you can see at the moment?

I think you should countersink some holes, and get some nice fixings..

That's what is in my Compact Splash build, and the flat surface is just the perfect final touch.

the screws i'm using right now won't be the final ones.
as you suggested i'm gonna sink the screw holes and get some either white or black screws preferably socket screws.

edit.
you know. those screws you linked would be so perfect smile.gif

Time for an update.

So i got a new dremel and started work on the front panel.



I'm just testing out if it will look ok.
As you might be able to tell i'm reusing the original grills for the top vent of the raven case.
The plan is to have a back-lit snow raven logo at the top.
something like the silver-stone snowflake behind the raven logo.

And i finally started gating stuff home for the cooling system.
Need it as some of the internal Plexiglas needs to be designed around it.



This is the tower tank.

When i started modding this case i was using alphacool stuff but after some time i fell in love with EK and all my stuff except for pumps will be EK from now on.
EDIT:
The computer in the corsair case is a project i'm working on for a m8

Yeah this is starting to look really good, I was looking at yours for inspiration for a new case build, but I have to hold off until I have a bit more time.

But yeah, I really like what you have going so far... It looks great.
