Hello and welcome to my second attempt at a proper scratchbuild.
The idea started a little over a year ago when I started getting more deeply interested in computer modding and styling, and since then I've tried and failed at a custom build.
Learning from my mistakes and taking what I know and adapting it to my new project brought me here.
The case will be 3D-printed in full, with the exception of the larger panels where I will either have them laser-cut, or dremel-cut. It will fit a full-size ATX motherboard, space for 3 radiators and also some room for a hardline custum loop. The case will be mashed with different video-game references - Which ones will be uncovered along the way, but if you with for anything special (And 3d-printable) just shout out suggestions and lets make this as messy as possible.
The 3d-printed parts will be made using PLA+ plastic on a Makerbot Replicator 2, and for the laser-cut parts I am still looking for a local supplier, if not I'll order it somewhere.
Here is a quick and dirty render of what it should resemble once it gets put together.
The frame of the case will be matte black, and the motherboard tray will either be pastel blue or matte white (have not yet decided).
Motherboard: Asus z170 Sabertooth S
CPU: Intel I7-6700k
GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 FTW
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 4x4gb, 2800mhz
Storage: 1 Intel 535 480gb SSD, 2xSamsung 850 PRO 128gb in raid 0, 2x samsung 850 PRO 256gb
PSU: Corsair AX760
1 EK 360 PE
2 EK 240 SE (Slim)
1 EK D5 Revo
1 EK Supremacy EVO Clear / Nickel
1 EK-FC 1080 FTW - Nickel
1 EK-FC FTW Backplate - nickel
A huge amount of different EK fittings and adapters
10 EK Vardar 120mm fans
I know my triple-rad settup is way overkill for single GPU + CPU, but my plans are to expand to SLI in the future. I also like a silent system so having the fans run at 800 rpm is ideal for me.
I also plan to paralel-cool the GPU and CPU. From what I can tell there should not affect the performance that much, given that I use low-resistance blocks and have a powerful pump.
