Then i started with the front, removed original frontpanel mesh, Tried some lianli mesh from another case on the drivecage area but Nah, thats not it.

Psu relocation + searching for watercooling opertunities

Voiding the warranty like a boss!

CIMG4444.jpg

CIMG4446.jpg

CIMG4448.jpg

Lets find a place for that naked psu!

CIMG4449.jpg

CIMG4450.jpg

Well thats a nice spot isnit?

CIMG4455.jpg

Some motherboard standoffs to mount the psu-pcb to the case

CIMG4457.jpg

CIMG4458.jpg

i did a good job, with to standoffs :D/>

CIMG4465.jpg

deleted some more Aluminium from the case.

CIMG4461.jpg

gonna mount the fan on an angle, so it gets fresh air (update for that incomming) and blowns the air to the headspreaders, and pcb.

CIMG4472.jpg

CIMG4473.jpg

Thinking about this layout, but i need a mcp355 pumptop to confirm this loop, so thats on hold untill i got the top.

Update :D/>!

Created an "intake" so i had no airflow isseus with the psu

CIMG4474.jpg

CIMG4475.jpg

Then i sawed of the mounting side of the psu INCLUDING the inline filter, so its all 1 part and not 1 thing here and 1 thing there (oh wait, xD! )

CIMG4477.jpg

CIMG4478.jpg

Today also came 2 packages in the mail, 15meter of red paracord sleeving and 50x152cm matte black vinyl (still wanted to try that and i kinda like it)

Cleaned the front, no more fans there, because the hole innerside will be random build :P/>

CIMG4489.jpg

* matte black blends in perfectly with brushed alu!

My psu was already sleeved with MDPC sleeving, but i wanted to go heathshrink less, so i took paracord :)/>.

CIMG4492.jpg

CIMG4497.jpg

CIMG4500.jpg

when sleeving all wires 1 at a time i created this wire pass thru.

CIMG4504.jpg

*also ripped a piece of metal away so i can let the wires guide at the back of the motherboard panel:)

also my top a step further, more about that tomorrow.

CIMG4499.jpg

see u with the next update ;)/>

i think its very cool to be able to watch two of the same exact computer come out looking way different.of course we see different mods of the same case but we are both on the same deadline and are taking very different roads to the same house so to say. to me its kinda different and interesting.

GL K3nny i know its going to look sick!
