*DONE* "Christmas Calendar" - Reaper PC

**Reaper PC**

Intro

I got the challenge from at friend to re-build his existing PC into a wallmounted build like no other.

Challenge Accepted!

Why Reaper?
  • Reaper is death
  • My friends case had to die to be rebuild into this
  • It's also the name of some cables I ended up using, "Reaper Cables"
  • The whole build is kept black/metal
  • The machine is really quiet, quiet like death, most likely because it's now an open air design and heat don't gets trapped



Some of you have maybe found other of my creations before, they are quite popular whenever I build something - I don't have the time anymore to go complete ham and build insane things, but that don't mean you don't get to see some of what I tinker with, like this one.
I decided to make it somewhat a Christmas Calendar and release little by little until the 23rd of December.

When I don't build PCs a lot of my spare time goes with the game "Sea of Thieves" - so come and say "Ahoy" if you see me:

30th November - planning


1st drawing in Sketchup:



Feedback from owner was that it looked really cool, but was too compact.
Another little thing he had forgot to tell me, is that he had planned to replace the harddrive with 2 SSDs for an all SSD build - also to again keep it as quiet as death.


2nd drawing in Sketchup:



Feedback was that it looked really cool!!
...but a small thing called gravity would probably soon stop me from doing that, the AiO tubes can not be run as neat and the GPU would for sure sag as nothing is really keeping it in place.
Also, notice the glow around the frame? My friend would like to have it somewhat backlit


3rd drawing in Sketchup:



Very close to the final design, a few tweaks left, mainly because of cable lengths and a few other tid bits to adjust.

Result:



:thumbsup:


Follow along tomorrow where I show more of the build process before we reach the actual result

This have been a challenge and very fun to build, hope you like the result as much as I do.

1st of December - shopping and preparing

The very first thing I bought, was the black color for the board the whole thing will be placed on.
Decided to buy an outdoor paint, as its tougher and little easier to wipe off in case of cleaning.




Bought parts from both the UK, Germany, Netherlands and locally in Denmark, all took a while before the arrived.




One of the things I bought was extra long round SATA cables and angled adapters




Background light for the board




The tiny little details like I even bought black screws, just because they will look nicer




If you have not looked on the link from yesterday, this is how the machine looked when I originally build it




Next step, a small test to see if the concept about having the rad far away from the pump even worked (it does)




Time to strip....




-see more tomorrow

2. December - "Casemod"


It is a casemod afterall, so let the casemods begin!
First, a little new tool, I might have burned out my old Dremel, most likely overused it on other projects...




Lets take it again from yesterday, this is how the case looked before meeting my Dremel:




Aaaand this is how it looked after my Dremel been used:






Here you go, 1 piece motherboard tray, recycled:





...follow tomorrow to see what then happens later, it is a calendar afterall

3rd December - paint

Any casemod tend to have at least some degree of paint involved.
In Reaper PC there is more paint than normal, as I had to build up a case from close to nothing.
First thing to be painted, the motherboard tray I cut out yesterday so it will be an even matt black:




This is what in the end will be "the cabinet"
Yea I know, a pretty big piece of wood, but the owner did not like the idea of shrinking it down so had to go big




Let's begin







...see you tomorrow for another update :clap:

I just remembered, I have not yet said anything about what hardware is in the actual machine:

  • Intel Core i5-7500 3.4 GHz Quad-Core
  • NZXT Kraken X31
  • Asus STRIX H270F GAMING
  • Corsair LPX CMK16GX4M2A2400C14 16GB RAM
  • OCZ Trion 100 240 GB SSD
  • Intel 520 240 GB SSD
  • OCZ Agility 3 240 GB SSD
  • Gigabyte GeForce GTX 1060 6GB 6 GB WINDFORCE OC 6G
  • EVGA SuperNOVA NEX 650 W 80+ Gold
  • 3x Swiftech HELIX120BW fans
  • USB LED strip white light
  • Long round SATA cables
  • Angled SATA adapters
  • RGB LED strip
  • Shakmods front panel extensions
  • Reaper Cable carbon/billet cable extensions


It was not ment to be upgraded now, only given an overhaul on the look. It's still a very good machine, and actually now even easier to upgrade as there is no case in the way

4th December - PSU mod

Daughter is not feeling well, so yesterdays update got skipped, instead you will get 2 updates today!
Let's start in the right order with the 4th of December.

Beside the fact that I re-used the motherboard tray, I have also reused the "PSU mounting bracket" from the original case. Also considered to re-use the SSD bracket that used to be part of one of the sides in the original case.




Owner of this PC really like wallmounted PCs that have the whole surface covered with carbon foil, but as I'm building this at his expense he did not feel like paying for a huge amount of carbon, those foils get pretty pricy real fast.
Instead I found a small scrap piece of carbon foil I have used in another casemod not too long ago and covered the side of the PSU, there where the 5v and 12v sticker normally is.




...enough about the 4th, let me write the more exciting 5th for you

5th December - more mods


There was a PSU shroud in the original case, was pretty useful to keep the kind of ugly connections on the PSU out of sight.
To literally think outside the box and re-invent the PSU shroud for a build like this, that was quite the challenge. This is the beginning of what I did:




All metal parts have been painted in the same matt black spray paint, even this one, it is almost not visible but the fan grid part is sometimes able to be seen, see later what I mean by that




I have used a ton of techniques on this build and so many tools, I've never build a PC that involves this much work before, so let me know what you think later on when you start to see it all come together




...follow the build to see more pieces get done tomorrow (there is even a part for tomorrows update that's hinted in these pictures, curious what it is, see that tomorrow)

6th of December - Metal!


I am from Denmark, it 's over midnight here now, so technically its considered the 6th now

I know I will come home very late today, so you get the update now instead. In the last update I mentioned that something was already kind of revealed, so here it is:

After I had painted the plate it all will be attached to, the edges don't looks super great, so to give it some character I decided to give it a steel edge!
Not yet fully mounted, but the layout is there:






A small backstory:
I have over 300 pictures of this build, but to sort them out into 24 days and only show the best and most interesting ones is actually a bit of a task.
On top of that, I post it to 4 forums, in 2 languages, on Twitter and on Instagram, that alone is more work than what most would think.
Im going to show the build almost piece by piece until the last 3-4 days when I start to show how it all goes together, and lastly the big reveal the 23rd of December.
I think the result is much better than I would have hoped for, but lets wait and see what you think...


For tomorrows update, Saturday, I can tell you there is only 1 picture to show, but it's a pretty cool one of something you see more of later on.
On sunday there will be "cable porn" to look at, some of the very nice cables I ended up using from Reaper Cable.

Follow my calendar to see how it all goes :9xo
