~~ Black 'n White ~~



Intro:
Welcome to the buildlog of Black 'n White.
After a period without much modding I decided to do a new casemod.
The first time I saw the Fractal Design Define R2 Black Pearl I really wanted to mod it!
And not like I did before, a few little mods, but this time I wanted more.
So here it is, enjoy this log and I love feedback


Plan:
I have a lot idea's but I wont tell them all.
There will be paint(maybe powdercoating), cutting and sleeving. I want to hide a lot, to create a clean look.
The main goal is to get almost everything black and white.

Here is a little picture about one of the plans I have:


Parts:
I'm not sure if I will have the same hardware at the time I finish this project,
but this is what I have at the moment.

Update 1:

Updates:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16

Okay, I have a lot of parts already.
I really like the black and white style from Fractal Design, so I have a few parts from them:

First of all the fans:




And the case:
In the box


Installed a few parts for the pictures







I really like these doors, pretty easy to clean the fan filters too!









I couldnt wait to remove a few things



So there it goes, the HDD bay. One of the things I dont need, though it doesnt look bad at all!



You can see the power led here. I removed the stock Blue one for a White one. (stolen from the stock Darkknight fan
)


This is it for today, keep an eye out for the next update

That's going to be a sick door mod if worked out properly. Believe it or not, I have the same door panel idea with a Lian Li case I'm thinkin' about buying. Nice selection regarding the Overkill Ring grills
Looking forward to see it completed

Hehe, that kitchen table is only used to take a few pics, most of the time I work outside or on my room. And if I'm going to do something inside, I've got to protect the table (mom is standing behind me with the frying pan...xD)
Thanks

Update 2

Updates:
1-2-3-4-5-6-7-8-9-10-11-12-13-14-15-16

A small update today.
I did some work on the tunnels to get idea's what would be the best way to mount this stuff.
I want it to be removable, but it has got to be pretty sturdy, so I can move it without a problem.

The first idea I had was using the stock fan mounting. The only problem is that its plastic.
So its not strong enough. I need a few metal parts for this build,
so I'll see if I can make something for this too.

A few pictures from the tunnel:
How it looks without the door, so just a simple tunnel with a fan at the end.


How it looks from the inside. (there will be a box around the tube/fan, so it wont look like this
)


And how it looks from a few feet away.


Here are a few pictures from the inside. I installed some hardware a few days ago to see what I need to do to the interior.

5.25" bays and the tunnel.


The awesome black 'n white fans



The PSU with the GTS250 above it. (and an other gtx275 above that)


And this is what I did this morning, making a lot of pancakes

My mom asked me to do this, and it was a long time ago, so why not!



Finished product:


Thanks for watching, and maybe I have an other update at the end of the day.
