[SPONSORED] [S Frame] Plum Blossom

9421 66
Hi everybody and welcome to my newest log!

This build is going to be based around the mighty S Frame,a case I have been itching to mod since it first released,thanks Katerina @ In Win NL for giving me the last one they had!

Im going for a mecha look this time using the same colour palette as LUMO but with the yellow as highlight rather than the dominant colour.
It seems a shame to take drills,saws and files to such a beauty of a case but I have big plans...

Power is coming from my trusty 1500w Platimax,about time it did stuff other than powering pumps when filling loops!

Watercooling to come from EK of course!

This one is a labour of love so it will not be a quick log and I do ask people comment,positive/negative doesnt matter,feedback is welcomed!

Thanks to the contributors to this log,ASUS UK,EKWB,G Skill and the ever awesome In Win!

Its promising to be a tricky thing to make look good with the wiring and such. The S Frame is such an iconic case for me and I have such plans for it that I couldnt not realize them.

After a delay,in which I moved to Slovenia to be part of EK's R&D department,here is a small update in the progression of my labour of love on this case....

I wanted to keep the drive 'bays' for the 4x 1Tb SSD's so I had to find alternatives....

So the I/O panel in the front was taken out,drilled, and used for the mount,around .5mm between the panel and the case!

This puts the HDD out of view and still leaves room to suck the spare cabling into,there will be a little vanity plate covering the top and shielding everything from view.

Lets add a 'one of a kind' EK Rampage V ED10 monoblock!

And 2 500Gb WD Black HDD's which I had laying around,these will add a little surface detail,something that should go well with the mecha feel.

And a 6900k? Go on then....

And with the EK XE360?

Yum! Awaiting the cable clips from Nanoxia so the wiring can be done,this is the next job on the list.....

Looks OK, not the biggest fan of that case, bit obnoxious

, few interesting lines to play with in the tubing runs though, interested to see what happens.
How does that triple 480x setup perform?

Update!

So,while im waiting for spring to arrive in Slovenia...basement is too damn cold!....I went about getting the mobo ready to go,some paintwork to complement the chassis....











Progress is slow...im hibernating!

Paint is a 3 stage flouro yellow,the same used with LUMO.

I also started mounting the cable clamps from my new sponsor Nanoxia!

Sharp drill bits are a must,many,many holes to drilll......

Blocks are nearly done along with the rads,I used LUMO yellow and marblizing solution to get the effect.....and like last time,I need a boat load of clear to finish them up. Luckily I have some awesome 2K clear to hand!
Now I am just waiting for a nice day....

Painting for sure.
