[Build Log] Jet Black (Tyan Quad Socket, Aircraft-Grade Paint, Chrome Tubing all Watercooled!) - Page 4

OP Update, and pictures for that update!

Changing the build around; the fact that I'm under a timeframe (about a month) means I'll have updates more often for you guys. This round of pictures was taken using an older camera rather than my dad's DSLR camera, so bear with me.

So this is the case after unboxing from college. Needless to say it's a disaster as I didn't have very much time or access to the proper tools to install a new motherboard. I was able to complete some acrylic tubing work, but nowhere near the quality that I'd like. The case is also pretty damaged.


The damage is to all of the horizontal pieces of the case. Long story short, the top radiator cutout, midplate, and the base of the case are all bent in some way so much that the case panels don't actually fit on the case or pedestal properly. I'll have to fix this...somehow thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif




Don't have many pictures of the dismantle, but here's some of the parts out of the case.



A good flushing of all of the blocks as well as the radiators for the new build. thumb.gif




Case ready for stripping and radiators ready for painting!



That's about it for this update. I'm in the process of ordering the aircraft paint as well as the new watercooling pieces. Tonight I plan on drilling the proper mounting hole pattery for the Tyan Thunder motherboard so it can actually be secure on the case. Thanks!
