[Build log] White HAF X

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
This is my first build log on any pc but I thought why not, it's going to be a white/black/red theme. It's also my first hard tube mod but I'm dedicated to doing perfect bends and I have a lot of tubing, so it may take a while.

Build is going to include:

HAF X
Asus Maximus VII Hero
Intel i5 4690k
Crossfire MSI 7970 BE/OC
Xfx 1050 black edition psu
16gb gskill ddr3 2166
Hitachi 3tb hdd/Hitachi 1tb hdd
Samsung 840 120gb
Samsung 850 evo 250gb

Ek supremacy evo csq (black/)
Ek xres 140 d5 csq (black)
Ek fc7970 csq (black/nickel)
Ek dual 3 slot bridge csq (black)
Ek Coolstream XE 360 w/ap-15 push (white or black rad/red fans)
Ek Coolstream PE 360 w/ap-15 push (white or black rad/red fans)
Mayhem pastel blood red fluid
Bitspower petg 12mm, all bends will be tubing.
Darkside hard tube compression fittings
Darkside through hole 3 way fittings for draining, one at the input on front PE 360 rad and one at the input on the ek bridge.

Modding my HAF X is first on the list.

I've pulled the 5.25/3.5 bays from the case because I won't be needing them anymore and measure the interior for a panel on the front to mount the 240rad, panel covering the hole where the drive cages were and a box to cover the psu and mechanical hdd at the bottom with a 4.5" fan hole for an intake and air on the hdd. They are getting cut/bent as I type this at a local metal fabricator. Water jet cutting is stupid expensive but it is what it is.

Next on the list will be to cut out the rest of the Window on the side cover, I've already cut out the fan before in my previous build and replaced it with plexiglass but I want to see the entire inside now since the drive cages are gone. My plan is as little material as possible with it mostly plexiglass.

After getting the parts from the fabricator I'm going to install them with rivets and drill mounting holes for the SSD and pump/res combo then completely take the case apart in preparation for painting. The outside of the case (panels, plastic trim pieces) will be a flat white, inside entirely flat white with the fabricated panels/cover being also flat white. Main purpose for this is the white will act as a backdrop for the black and red, don't want everything white.

Finally got the pieces i ordered, 4 days late. Gotta say though the effort it takes to get a shop to bend a few pieces is a PITA, excuse after excuse why it's not done. Now all i gotta do is the cutting of the top rad space (for 60mm 360 rad) and drilling holes for SSD mounts, front rad mounts and cut the side panel again

Bottom Case cover with 4.5" hole for 120mm fan, want some air to flow around the hdd in there.


Back panel for the ssd's and pump.


Front rad mount.
