  1. Hi, I am very sorry for the lack of updates it was due to the renovation that is still ongoing and my modding area is part of it but now I am back as I've found a small spot where I can continue my work I have also brought in some help with the help of a vinly cutter and a 3d printer which I got a very deal on yay! So I have some updates First off I have manually cut a couple of EVGA logos with a scroll saw, these will be put on each side of the sliding panels. I spent most of the holidays with the family and the 3d printer lol, It was frustrating at first because I have zero Ideas on how it works but after plenty of playing and tinkering around as well as reading I guess I got some decent prints or usable at the very least I do not know how to make my own designs just yet as I am still focused on understanding its dynamics as a whole so I just print stuff that I find online which suits the mood for the project Something has to hold the PSU on the test bench so.. Mobo Stand off For the GPU One of the things that I've learned a few days ago was converting JPEG files to ohh I forgot the file format haha then to STL as a 3d printable file, so I tried it on the Gear up logo and wow it worked then I just made a few adjustments to better suit my taste. Short update but there will be more to come soon! see ya' around!
  2. Hi everyone I am back with a few Worked on the mobo tray My handwriting is super bad lol Removing those 2 thumb screws will make the mobo tray pop off the it's base. Yes in every project I have to mess one two or three things up lol have to retouch one of the stand offs as it was not on point, The Z170 Classified K fits right on top of the custom tray EVGA 1000G sitting in there nice and tight. And some angled shots Thanks be back in a jiffy!
  3. I am very sorry for the lack of updates this past few week but hey I'm back on track Also sorry but the pictures that I have right now are not with the best quality it is raining all day when the sun comes back tomorrow I'll take it outside for better images Let me go back with the case, here is the skeleton for the modular test bench It fits exactly as planned. Tubular aluminum to thumb screw the test bench on to. Ohh sliders <3 I also need to make handle bars out of flat aluminum. Manual bending yeah! The integrity of the case has been compromised since most of its parts was removed so I have some reinforcing to do. Connected! Custom acrylic panels will be placed on the sides of the case mounted on the sliders and I have to give those sheets some curves. I have been bending acrylic sheets with a heat gun since day 1, I guess I'm tired of that :p Very timely a friend handed down some Nichrome wire yes it's time for a DIY line bender. (I just followed some youtube guide on how this is done) Power source is a PSU that I took from an SFF PC that I haven't used for a very long time, I try to save money whenever I can So with some ply board, nails , wood screws, alligator clamp, old PSU and Nichrome wire we now have this Time to use it on the panel for the project. Mounted! I will be back with better images of the progress! thanks
  4. Thanks bro!
  5. A few updates for now, I have always used sleeved extensions on my previous builds so I am not an expert in sleeving but this time I am giving it a shot and I would like to get it out of the way because I am really slow at this. Color of the sleeves are Black, Carbon and very little white on the 24 pin cable. So here we go A good friend gave me one of his DIY pin extractor, thanks man! Here is the 24 Pin cable. Cables for the GPU EPS 12V and some other shots I haven't done the Sata and 4 pin molex yet because I ran out of Carbon sleeves :p So I have slow progress right now but I think that it's better than none Thanks and see you on the next update
  6. Hey man! I've been lurking here for a very long time lol, thanks for checking my worklog see ya around the zoo
  7. Hi everyone my name is Mickee from the Philippines and I would like to share this build in this community, The Idea is to make a modular test bench in a Thermaltake Core X71. Wish me luck! Here is what I have in mind but I really suck at following plans basically it might change later down the line Here is the Core X71 To kick things off lets start to strip the case down. They were really easy to remove. For this batch I used a drill to take out the riveted parts. I'm really not an expert in sleeving that is why I use sleeved extensions on my builds but I want to try it out this time, Clean looking cables from the front I/O would be nice. The front audio cord needs to be stripped off its rubber coating because I only have 3mm sleeves. I am very slow at this lol this took me about 30 minutes. And yes! but I don't know where I can get a sleeve that would fir the USB 3.0 cable EVGA!! Lets unbox them!! Lets start with the memory modules The 1000G Power Supply Superb packaging! I am going to sleeved them later down the line. Lovin' the hammered finish The Z170 Classified K Motherboard Shroud for the rear I/O Beatifulll!! EVGA Classfied 980ti Very nice! we have bonus items Going back to the card itself. It is massively awesome! That was a blast! Going back to the case The case has temporarily lost its rigidity when the motherboard tray and rear panel was removed so aluminum bars to the rescue! I like using aluminum bars because they are easy to cut and file. I also gave the case a little tilt It not super sturdy yet but it will be later 3mm Acrylic will serve as out motherboard tray for this project, some cutting and measuring. Aluminum bars for the skeletal system of the modular test bench. So those are all that I have so far, I am working on the measurements them cut them altogether then screw or have them riveted to the relevant points. Next update will be on the weekend, see ya!
  8. Thank you and another thanks for the Tip Cheapskate I'll work on that real soon ;D

  12. First off i'd like to share this short clip on how I made the GPU back plate and MSI Gaming Dragon logo on the custom side panel. We also received some gears from TteSPORTS, thanks!

  13. Update time :D just a few though and there is one week left before deadline... This is the front I/O ports, it is normally lays flat on top of the case. It is cable management time, sorry for the poor quality picture. Ta daaa But wait I want to give it a little old school sci-fi , robotic roughed up machine effect :D Sprayed it with Medium Grey, the orange parts between the gaps are still visible so I need to use a small brush for that. Of course weather it :D And those are all for now, the next update will be massive Cheers!
