This build is to add a new family member to my Titanium Builds.

 

I call it the Titanium R. There will be 4 kinds of Titanium that I will be releasing in the near future.

 

Titanium X - Extreme build with extreme parts and fully customized.

Titanium S - Super build with Mid-high end parts using Cosmos 2.

Titanium R - Radical build using Midrange parts and standard size chasis.

Titanium J - Jr. size build with M-ATX/ITX parts.

 

For this build we will build the TITANIUM R

 

With this, I will be using the new chasis from NZXT

 

The NZXT Source 530

This case is very compact but it has some serious space  inside.

 

what I like about this case is that the metal that were used are very rigid. And it also has very nice details.

 

For example,

the back of the case has some extruded mesh for the fans which gives more space.

I also like the idea that you could re-adjust where you will be placing your radiator just in case something is hitting your fans/rad

Other details, for a cheap price, I really like the way they made it fully compatible with water cooling support and the way the motherboard tray was design and created makes this special. :)

 

So lets start doing some minor modding to it :)

 

as some of you know, I always wanted rotated motherboard tray. With this case its very easy to convert. We just rotate the entire casing! :)

 

After removing the front plastic panel.

I made some tracing to know where I should drill holes on the top panel.

and then drill!

after a few minutes! Tada! we have converted the case into 90 deg rotated motherboard tray.

Now I will make something for the back to make it look nice

now let us add some more details! 

my design inspiration for this build is my favorite chair I saw one time at a store.
