Is the black part of the new design just a layer of vinyl or a thin piece of plexi?

Genuinely wanted to ask the question anyway, but if I'm somehow lucky enough to have my number drawn the Nepton would be kinda cool.

Really happy with the results, photos look great. What is the stand you are using there?

Some of my elements are kinda based off yours, well, 1 very specific part :-D

Can't wait to see what it looks like when you finish. Pictures look great man!

Thanks man! Ooh that sounds exciting, I've always thought (especially since the legendary Project Darkblade) machining parts for projects is cool in general, looking forward to seeing more of this.

Now with the new lighter design,how heavy do you hope it to be,together with the briefcase?

Thank you for an awesome giveaway too thumb.gif
I'd love to win the AIO cooler,so that I can use my H75 in a future build,but to tell you the truth,the eye candy is more than satisfying biggrin.gif

Truthfully, I have no idea about the total weight really. It'll still be heavy as that's just watercooling in general, but the acrylic plate now weighs less than a typical mid-tower, which for me is a big deal. I'll be sure to do a proper weigh-in once it's finished.

Tough choice between the waterblock and the AIO, but ultimately I suppose the AIO will be useful more frequently, so I'll sign up for that one.

Glad to see you are still working on this!

Depends a lot on the size and complexity really. A lot of places use really heavy duty machines that have a smaller cutting area instead, so the cost can increase if you need larger machinery. But in my case it was just north of the £200 mark, which I think is pretty good, similar to a high end case.

Yeah you can tell how busy they are when you chat to them, maybe one day they'll expand across the pond? Who knows?

It's a layer of 5mm matte black acrylic, the same kind that Parvum uses for their cases (makes sense given it's from their stock rofl).

Good to see you popping by biggrin.gif

The stand is one I made from two layers of 5mm matte black acrylic and a layer of 10mm polycarbonate. Basically made a sandwich and cut it them out with a jigsaw, then lots of sanding. It's designed specifically to fit this project, works remarkably well actually.

Awesome, glad to see this build revived!

I didnt see anywhere is this log what the overall dimensions were?

I would really enjoy that AIO cooler!

Good pics! I definitely need to check out vinyl myself. A white/black cloth backdrop is great for reviews but I like what you can B Neg are getting with vinyl.

Amazing work.

Did you post this on reddit recently? I think I saw it this morning when I was browsing while having my morning coffee.
I could definitely put that Coolermaster AIO to good use thumb.gif

Overall the dimensions are 550x480x100mm, so quite large really as I've kept things planar.

I'm actually just using paper currently, can't quite afford to pick up a vinyl backing right now. I've taken other pictures using it before though, found it to be great to work with thanks to how the light scatters a bit better.

I did indeed! Posted it to both /r/wartercooling and /r/gamingpc, cool to see when communities overlap.

And to everybody, I meant to do an update tonight but threading all those holes took much longer than expected. I'll put some progress up tomorrow, it's coming along well thumb.gif

Good to know. I like cloth a lot, but the folds never go away fully and get dirty quick too.
post #169 of 336
I'm in for the aio
do you like kitkats as much as the guy in your avatar? biggrin.gif (i have no idea where that guy is from so if he's from a show don't be mad pls)
would be really cool to use it in my itx server.

Amazing build, attention to detail is awesome. I love the gold, didn't think I'd actually EVER look at anything gold and think positive thoughts, hahaha!
Sorry about the drop, things happen, especially when you least want it! I had 2x 40inch tv's and my desktop standing on a long table like this and I was in a hurry, stood up too fast and accidentally kicked the table.. everything flipped... thankfully nothing happened except a dent in the metal in one of the screens.. I know how it feels to mess up like that, hah.


Though, not exactly my cup of tea, if I were to buy ITX, it'd be to go down in size as much as possible, like super compact I guess. But hmm, I guess you can't really show off a compact PC, it would be like looking at one of those zotac zbox/brick things... hm...

Anyways, my only question is: Why did you opt for ITX instead of mATX? Surely you could fit a more logical choice of motherboard into the design, somehow? I guess one way would be to not use a SATA SSD, and use an M.2 SSD you could just plug into the mobo, move around a few things, etc, or perhaps stack them even? I don't know, still in my opinion the best case "mod" out there! I don't like when people take existing cases and layouts and barely change the core, only a few design tweaks... so this is a 9.5/10 for me, I have no doubt if you started earlier/had more time, it would eventually become a 10/10! So many things you can customize, so little time! tongue.gif

I'd gladly take the Nepton 280L for a new build I was going to make for my girlfriend, she's scared of water cooling. 10/10 present.
