  1. [Case Mod] Project M7

    UPDATE I sprayed the sheets inside the case with a filler and then two layers of matt black paint. The sheets are still rubbed and scratched and other layers will be sprayed, but I did not want to work with HW and greasy sheets :D The top 360 rad is a little nut in this case, if you want to see the motherboard pretty well and do not cover the radiator with the fans. That's why I decided to mount it even higher than usual. For sure even through this sheet that I left from the Hex Gear cabinet. Another very important part of the whole casemod - red screws: D For PCIE graphics cables I print on a 3D printer cable holder / organizer that will be mounted on the bottom plate and the cables will go through. First but a few measurements where to place the holder Already in the first update, you might notice sources from Seasonic. It's the model PRIME PLATINUM 1200 Exputed from Bitspower Holders still had to pull out due to polishing of the end parts. That "frosted" style, or how to call it, does not fit me Before polishing And after polishing Holders are divided into several parts and assembly is a question of 8 screws and then another 4 on the radiator. In the meantime, I also sprayed the legs of the case on the matt black and mounted them back. Cable organizer is already in place Just like the sheet on the side, which will not have to be further colored and will remain where it is During these works I managed to solve the RAM and SSD :D More in the next update!

    UPDATE After painting both layers of red it was beautiful red. Before the dragon spraying, the red was clear coated (just in case). Fortunately, the MSI logo has been delivered in the vectors, so cutting the template on the plotter was easy fun :D First of all, the stripes, seal everything thoroughly and then the silver glitters onto. Hot stripes Back to the case, I mounted 240 rad of Bitspower and also reservoir with premium aluminum holders - really a piece of art Whole loop is by Bitspower! Many thanks for the support!. You can see their offer on their eshop and shop there after registration http://www.bitspower.com.tw Blocks, radiators, fittings, expa, pumps, tubes = 100% Bitspower water loop The loop will be with 240 rad in front and 360 on the top. Both 30 mm thick. The top rad is from Touchaqua - Bitspower. Next object of modding was nickel plated Bitspowe Cpu block. Painting it in candy red color. First, carefully seal to ensure that painted are only those areas that do not come into contact with water. Vuala. Bitspower Candy red block is here :D Two more photos with DSLR More next time! :D
  3. [Case Mod] Project M7

    UPDATE The beginning is always quite clear – take off from the case everything that will be modded or completely out :-D All aluminum parts on this case will be sprayed, the front and top panel on the red + airbrush stripes and MSI dragon and legs of the case on black. The red color will be exactly this mazda shade. It's such a metallic / candy red color Spraying is carried out in two phases. The first mix comes in red and silver, and then some transparent candy red color is applied. After the first phase it did not look pretty, I was a little afraid :-D But the other layer really changed a lot, and the color is exactly what it should be. This is just a quick flash photo. After finishing the first paint spray, it was time to mod to the interior of the case. Here are some photos of HW from MSI. Motherboard MSI X299 M7 ACK with i9 7900X processor and MSI GAMING X 1080 Ti graphics card :-) This is how case looks with all accessories, covers, etc. After removing all the unnecessary :-D The case will be completed with sheets that make the appearance look and hide all unnecessary holes, But there was a tiny fault a part of the case peeking beneath the plate, which I would probably have to cut out to avoid unnecessary disturbance. More soon! :))
  4. [Case Mod] Project M7

    Welcome to the next project! It's one of two that I want to finish this year. The second will be in the new Cosmos C700P and soon I will also start the thread here on the forum After the 24-hour Nvidia GeForce Garage in Poland, I return to my favorite Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TG. This project is for (and in cooperation with) MSI. Plan The case will be painted and airbrusher in a "candy red" color. On the front will dominate the MSI dragon in silver / gray style and two stripes. The case will be modded inside to simplify and smooth the style. Components ▪ Intel i9 7900X ▪ MSI M7 ACK X299 ▪ MSI GTX 1080Ti Gaming X ▪ Phanteks Evolv ATX Tempered Glass ▪ Seasonic PRIME PLATINUM 1200 ▪ Bitspower water cooling RAM and SSD are not yet resolved :-D Here are a couple of photos of the case and HW Everything is already home and some progress is already recorded, so very soon ther will be first update here is the current progress:

    FINAL PHOTOS!! Finished Thanks to all sponsors!!
  6. [Case Mod] TUF S

    Last update Next one will be with final photos Lots of measuring for tubing so in the end it will be all accurate and straight. Bitspower passthroughs The parts I cant imagine my loop without The most measuring was with the graphics card but it paid off This tube will be hidden by custom reservoir on the top GPU with block and all fittings prepared, just to put it in The next and nearly last tubes I am really happy how this cable 3d printed comb came out! Huge thanks to CoolerMaster for this amazing PSU V850, keyboard MasterKeys PRO L and mouse MasterMouse LITE S Last tube and its finished! Filling time! :D
  7. [Case Mod] TUF S

    Airbrush on the case is finished! Also the clear coating on it and polishing. The BIG gold TUF logo Also the Bitspower on the front side. Finally I know how the entire water loop will look like. There goes lot of time to measuring holes for tubing because every mistake will be very noticeable. But it went fine Next step was to drill same two holes on the bottom of the case. And here are all amazing fittings from Bitspower for this project. All in True Brass color - they are just amazing and super quality. Middle step with drilling was also cutting the hole for PCIE cables for GPU. All cutted and drilled finally :D 3D printed part coated with matt black paint. PCIE cabling with printed cable comb and also with 4 Icemodz black cablecombs. Custom sized hand maded cables from Icemodz.eu (sleeving, cable combs, clips, connectors...). Be sure to check out their eshop with amazing stuff for amazing prices http://www.icemodz.eu In the next update I will place the pump in the bottom of the case. There is really not much space but it should work out. Also few photos of D5 pump combo kit (TOP and gold mod kit). More sooon!

    Here is next update! In april I have not much time because I have to complete one computer for ASUS CZ office. Airbrush and clear coating on this case is finished and only remains polyshing. Update about airbrush will be very soon! For now I have placed in case MB, GPU and RAM. Thanks G.Skill for amazing support of those RAMs TridentZ DDR4. Black 16 GB 3000 MHz. As always beautiful watercooling from Bitspower! Whole loop from BP, here are few photos, photos of fittings and etc will be in next updates. I took off the cover from the GPU block. I like it more in "classic" style. Also in few moments I took off this black terminal and installed clear one. So far the biggest PCB I have :D Acrylic parts of the block will be polished for better look. Painted backplate and also the red part on the core. Rear 140 mm fan I changed to white - it looks better. Back side of case has 2 positions for 2,5" disks. Here is 512 GB SSD without sticker ADATA. For 3,5" disk I have to make new position, because the original place - in the bottom of case - will be "filled" with D5 pump. Here will be placed 3,5" 2TB Seagate Barracuda. Holes for PCIE power cables I did not laser cut because I was not 100% sure about their position :D But the idea is to cut hole, fill with cables and cover with this 3D printed part. I have 3D printer for only few weeks now, so it is not 100% calibrated yet and it was not super expensive, but quite good result More soon!

    FINISHED!

    Second part of the reservoir is finished. CNC machined out of 10 mm clear acrylic. Before photos of completed reservoir here is how I planned loop for this computer :D Some drilling in old motherboard and with old blocks. Few screws and here is my plan for this loop :D Finished reservoir. Countersunk screws will be painted in gold as the whole loop will be with Bitspower True Brass fittings. O-Ring is 3 mm diameter. Next part will be airbrushing outside parts of the case. All in the style of the motherboard - white and grey digital camo. On the fron big TUF logo. TUF logo will be in this colors Also I have recently finished one of my pinkiest projects :D
  11. [Case Mod] TUF S

    Finally I got time to CNC milling custom reservoir on the TOP of the case. To the 3 mm top plate was milled big hole for acrylic and 18x 3,2 mm for screws. Milling was at my friends work on highquality machine for the best result. This is the final render of my custom reservoir. 20 mm acrylic, 3 mm Al case part, o-ring and 10 mm acrylic. Also 18xM3 screws and Bitspower True Brass fittings. I had GoPro on the machine, but with the cooling powered on there was not much to see, so only some screens from the video. While (at the start of this project) I was laser cutting sheets I also cutted this one. Just for a test. First hardware parts for this project. Thanks for support ASUS. Beautiful motherboard Z170 "S" and Strix GTX 980Ti which will be watercooled too. Back to the reservoir. Render of main part which will be made out of 20 mm acrylic. First assembly. Fits perfectly! Next time I will be machining second part of the reservoir! More soon

    UPDATE For mounting Alu profile for LEDs I have to dissasemble the case a bit. Alu profile is on 2 countersunk M3x5 Finally the cover for the SLI bridge is finished too. Matte black with some pink touch and ASUS sticker - I guess I have it from ASUS VII Impact. Only few tubes connect and it is! Tube will be hidden behind the fans. I have change all orings on the fittings for black. Ready, just put the radiator in the case and connect with tubing. I also changed my mind one more time about the loop :D These fittings from Bitspower are perfect to work with! Awesome product imo. Actual. Finished sooon! :D UPDATE This pink beast will be finished soon!! As the last piece of HW was disk - I decided to use the HyperX SSD 480 GB. Installation of disks (2.5 "and 3.5") in this case there is a nice and easy. I also try to keep some nice cable management. The current view of the front. Missing just finished loop and power for vgas. I made some changes to the loop and now graphics card will run in serial. For serial connection must be put into such a small stop fiting. Power for VGAs. With that I also played for a while and tried variations, but this is the cleanest. On the inside the LEDs lighting strip, but to have a profile with frosted plexiglass. SSD I finally placed into the bottom position. And this looks like the back part of the current. Front - missing only to finish loop and its finished! more soon UPDATE "so near and yet so far": D January was unfortunately a bit more work intensive than I had planned, so I managed to work less at this and last week I was ill.. The processor fot this setup is i5 6600K. Hopefully it will be good piece The loop I have planned differently,and then I threw the whole concept and try to do it as simply as possible. But still I try to do pipes straight as possible. I decided to polish the SLI Bitspower bridge. Polished version looks much better than the frosted one - the overall strangely reflected light was very bright. Anyway, with the water inside it will look completely different again

    Here is the raw drawing how it will looks inside. I am trying to have most of the tubing at 45 degress - it will look very clean imo. In the upper part of the case I have to cut one "piece". It was quiety easy as the material is thin. I will paint cuts with black paint soon. Can anybody guess what is this plate for? Upper part of case, for fans or radiators, I decided to fill with sheet. I dont know what I was thinking about when I was drawing this plate, but it is terrible.. :D So I draw better one and cut it on plasma cutter. Much better In the top I also mounted the alu profile for LED strip. And here is the final render of this beast. Gold(True brass) Bitspower fittings and white pastel coolant. Do you like it?

    Sooo, finally the first update! Let's start with the case - Phanteks Enthoo Evolve ATX TG. For me one of the best cases I've ever had. But still will be modded :D Phanteks gear – case, RGB lighting etc. I am not sure if I will put the RGB inside the case, but for sure it will light up background behind the LCD monitor. Also Phanteks fans with high static pressure ideal for water cooling radiator. Also thermal paste from Phanteks. With that I have no experience, so I hope that will be good There is case stripped off all demountable parts. I will put inside the case 4 plates new steel sheets, which usually have only aesthetic - interior cleaner, hiding unnecessary openings, etc. Measuring and drawing phase for all sheets took me about an hour, I'm a perfectionist and I wanted it all precisely, and most nicely The plates are laser cutted and bended on CNC press brake. The first plate inside, is mounted in to a case with 2x M3 screws. But lacks a hole for the radiator (which is 360 mm) because I did not know until the last moment if I will be using 35 or 55 mm thick rad. For the needs of a measurement hole, I used an older radiator (which is pretty old :D), so I will not scratched new one from Bitspower. Hole for the radiator I had to do a little bigger. If I did not do it I will not be able to put in radiator or the plate. The cut was done fairly level, but it was still necessary to grind it. Before drilling the holes for the upper part I mount the second plate, which will also be on M3 screws, but countersunk head. A lower part of the case ready Then I took these plastic caps from positions where are positions for HDD brackets. Plate with smaller holes for cables. A bent about 27 degrees - according to the original frame. Current status More soon!
