[Build Log] Bebop v2 (Silverstone TJ07)

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi to everybody!
This is my first Build Log and I would like to share it with you.
I had already modded my Silverstone TJ07 but it is time to change its hardware so I decided to mod it again.

My pregoratives are about hardware functionality and not about modding itself.
It will be a daily use PC and it will have to look alike.
So I’m not the one who decide a motherboard on its colors but on its features and damn, I need a BD-RW in my case, why everybody is deciding to remove any optical drive from their mods? tongue.gif

This is how Bebop v1 looked like (photo shot before dismantling it)



















The ideas are:
- Black powdercoating of silver parts of Silverstone TJ07
- Instead of using Fezer blu UV tubes, use acrylic tubes and mayhem clear blue and blue additives
- Use a full waterblock in plexyglass on GPU
- Tilt the GPU like L3P Parvum mod, use a PCI-Ex 16x extender cable, a 90° HDMI adapter, a 20cm HDMI extender and a custom made port in a PCI bracket =)
The stand will be made with aluminum and will be secured to the case with double-sided tape
- Change CPU block with one in plexyglass
- Add a RAM waterblock (useless but it looks very beautiful with coloured liquid inside)
- Change UV neon with Phobya FlexLight
- Remove the Silverstone drive cage and use instead 1 SSD and 1 HD and install them in 5,25” bay
- Use radiator stands instead of neoprene

What I keep:
- TFC X-Changer 480
- TFC X-Changer 240
- EK-Multioption RES 150 rev.2 with plexyglass holders
- Swiftech MCP655
- All fans
- LG BD-RW smile.gif

The photo will not be at their best as I'm working in a low light environment and I'm still testing my abilities of photographer tongue.gif

This is how the rear and top fans look like



They are blue UV reactive Akasa fans and they have 4 UV leds. They have 2 3-pin cables: 1 just for the led and 1 for power.
All lights inside the case will have a separate circuit and they will be turned on/off using a switch placed a on PCI bracket.
I'm going to remove the extender from the power cable, sleeve them with the black paracord and change the blue 3-pin with a black one.

These are the 4x120 radiator fans
(realized too late that this photo is blurry -_-)



They are also blue UV reactive but the plastic is more black.
I did the same threatment: remove the extender from the power cable and sleeve both cables with the black paracord.

Pulse Modding radiator stand 2x120





TFC X-Changer 2x120 radiator + Pulse Modding radiator stand + TFC silicon absorber



Fans mounted



Sleeved cables + changed white 3-pin connectors with black ones



Pulse modding screws: if you give me a black powder coated stand, why I'm supposed to use silver screws??? -_-

Top fan with sleeved cable and changed 3-pin from blue to black



Gainward nVidia Geforce 780GTX with EK-FC780 GTX Jetstream - Nickel + EK-FC780 GTX Jetstream Backplate - Black
2 screws are missing but EK should have send me new ones.
2x Bitspower 60° as I'm going to incline the VGA at 30° circa



Asus Maximus VI Hero + EK-RAM Monarch Module - Black (2pcs) + EK-RAM Monarch X4 - Nickel CSQ
Screws for Monarch Module were too short in my opinion, they even didn't tighten without the RAM stick in the middle. I had to cut some on my own to make them of the right length.
Still arguing with EK support... >_<<br />
The Monarch X4 has been polished, nice result ^^



This will be the cable responsible of the illumination. The extremity will be attached to the switch.



I saw this tool in a YouTube video of Lutro, perfect to cut the heat shrink of the right length.
So I tried to create one on my own. I decided to use velcro so I can change length everytime I want (Lutro's one was fixed with screws)


Sleeved cable and black connector for Swiftech MCP655. Waiting for the plexy top.

Some fittings arrived



My SATA BD rewriter black spray painted.
I know powder coating is much way better but the service is far away from me and at the moment I'm unable to drive.







Other stuff that I'm going to spray paint.
The first bracket from the left is the one with the switch to turn on/off the illumination.
The second one, it's a custom made port for HDMI. It has been cut using Dremel and its Workstation. Thanks to a friend that did this job biggrin.gif

Setting the cables behind the motherboard



Water temperature sensor in the bottom part of the case. It is placed before the radiators, where the water should be at its hottest point



Both radiators, TFC xChanger 4x120 and 2x120 placed in the bottom part



I like the aluminum bay cover that come with the Silverstone. I just decided to place a black poweder coated metal part to avoid internal lights to be visibie

This is how I have made my E22 tubes smile.gif



You can also see:
- the 7800GTX inclined at 60° on 2 aluminum bracket and the extended 16x PCI-E cable.
- the transparent EK top for the D5 pump
- black painted Blue-ray drive
- Phobya high-density UV led strip

How it looks behind.
All black powder coated. I have put small metal parts behind the square holes as I want to force air flow inside the case.
Here there is only the right panel (on the left on the picture).



Managing looooots of cables biggrin.gif
And the T-Balancer smile.gif

Very nice makeover.smile.gif
The inclined gpu is a really unique idea, I've never seen that done before.
Looking forward to seeing more.
