So my dear friends, here we go again!


My last project went up in smoke since the company I had contacted for help with creating the vital parts of my scratch build promised more than they could keep. So here I was with all these parts I had received for that project and nothing to show for. I had a discussion with be quiet! and explained the situation, told them I wanted to do anything to make up for all this and do the best out of this crappy situation. Luckily they were kind enough to send me a Dark Base 700 so I could make a new project with all these parts... So I decided to name this proect "Salvage" which I though was suitable.

My thought with this project is a clean all air cooled build in all its "simplicity". Open up and mod parts for better airflow. Since all parts are close to inaudible that wont be an issue. Despite "access" to RGB on almost every component in this project I've decided to go with the classic red and black theme.

Components I will be using for this project



Case - be quiet! Dark Base 700


Mobo and CPU - MSI Gaming M7 AC and Ryzen 2 2700X


PSU - be quiet! Straight Power 11 850W


GPU - MSI 1050Ti Gaming X 4GB


SSD and RAM - Teamgroup Delta RGB SSD 250GB och Teamgroup Delta RGB 3000Mhz


CPU cooler - be quiet Dark Rock Pro 4


Fans - be quiet! Silent Wings 3


I've already started modifying the case quite a bit, but I still hope you'd want to follow me on the final parts of this project.

Once again I'd like to send a huge thanks to my sponsors for the continued support and confidence in me despite the debacle with the last project!

As stated, I've already made some modifications by now. I planned to cut an opening in the top and in the front of the case and I had some parts made for this...













My plans was to use a similar design for both the front and the top... but I realized that the front was designed in a way that cutting the entire piece in a similar way as the top was a no go





So I'll be going with a solid front and come up with some other stuff for that part... pictures of my solution for that will come in a future update.

I thought it would be a waste not to use that nice looking piece for the front. So I took the front part of my old project and cut it so I can use it there instead.



The psu shroud is cut open and I've made a piece of acrylic that will be lit up with the name of the project on it.











And I've of course cut the top open so I can use that nice looking top piece...

My dear "Modderbrother" Zeuligan was kind enough to 3D-print my logo. This will be painted and put in the front of the case instead of my CNC-cut piece that I couldn't use...

Went down to the basement today to prepare everything for the paiting that I'll be doing this weekend. While I was at it I did a new backplate for the graphics card so I can paint that as well. Today I also got the news that this project will go to Computex and can be seen in the be quiet! booth at Computex

Had some spare time, so I sat down and thought I'd make a pattern of some kind for the graphics card backplate and the plate for the SSD. There's a possibility to have this done in a printer for this specific thing... but at the same time I think it's fun with a personal touch. So instead of just black plates I came up with this





And primer and painting have begun...



So things are slowly moving forward

Started painting all the parts... the metal part for the top, the backplate, the plate with the project name and the part where the SSD will sit...









After two days of headache after each painting session I realized I had to buy one of these...



So now it was no issues with headaches and all pieces could be finalized...









Now it's just to put them where they're supposed to be. The final pieces will arrive this week so this project is not far off now

Yesterday the final two pieces for this project finally arrived...



My plan with these are to use them like this...



I'm also going to put two acrylic pieces behind them...







Primer, then they're going to be painted black...



I also took the time to redo the top part since I wasn't exactly happy with the color when it was put directly on aluminium...
