[Build Log] My FT02 Project // High Contrast

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all! I'm back with my third WC build log. Hopefully I can make it a log and not a few pics of the finished project. I tend to get a little excited so we will see how that goes.

I have been a big fan of the FT02 for many years but never felt really compelled to come out of my CaseLabs and go into a different manufacture of chassis. I was browsing eBay the other day for cases and found a FT02 for $39!! Wow, it was a little dinged up and needed some love but what a fun and great project for me to work on! This is something that I have wanted to do for a long time and the 90 degree mobo layout is something that has always been a eye catcher for myself.

So here come the mods.. I will be removing the 5.25 drive bays and the harddrive rack and building a false wall. The case will be entirely open. I am either going to make a window where the 5.25 bays go out use my CaseLabs vented grills and jazz the front up with those. I will also be painting the outside panels of the chassis white while leaving the interior black. A white and black case has always been something that is on my To Do list and there is no time like the present! I will also be adding a EK WE 540 Rad in the floor of the case. I will also have a full acrylic side window. I will also be adding a plate to the top and take off that cheap IO.PR section and putting my own vandal switches in.

Parts:
Asus X99 Deluxe
5820K
(2) Gigabyte 970's
Corsair Dominator Platinum 2666Mhz
EVGA P2 1000w
Samsung Evo 850 500Gb
WD Green 3TB (Going to try and put this into the back of the case if it will fit)

WC:
EK 970 Blocks
BP V2 Ram Blocks
BP Summit CPU Block
Laing D5
AquaComputer Aqualis Res + Pump Top
BP Black 3/4 OD Fittings
EK WE 540 Rad

Let the fun begin!

TL;DR ->

Got FT02 for $39 --> Able to do the FT02 project I've always wanted to.
