Hi everyone!
 
It´s time once again to start a new project and this time i will do a case mod on the Corsair 280X. The theme for this build will be a Warcraft, specifically the Alliance. The name Wrynn comes from the human king with the same name and the build will heavily be infuenced by their city Stormwind.
 
Most of the parts for this build has been modeled by me and then 3d-printed. The whole build will later be hand painted aswell.
 
The parts i will be using for the project is,
 
Chassi: Corsair 280X
Motherboard: Asus Crosshair VII Impact ( Sponsored by Asus )
CPU: AMD 3700X
Memory: Corsair Vengeance PRO RGB 2x8gb 3200mhz ( Sponsored by Corsair )
SSD: Corsair MP510 240gb ( Sponsored by Corsair )
GPU: Sapphire RX 5700 XT
PSU: Corsair RM650 ( Sponsored by Corsair )
Cooler(s): Corsair H100i Platinum ( Sponsored by Corsair )
 
The build is sponsored by Asus and Corsair so a big thanks to you guys for helping out with this project! Here are the components that they provided

Lets start with the case which is the Corsair 280X
KMURHIP.png
Here we see the top of the case which i've started to measure up for the "planks" that will go on top
fiRY7I5.png
Took a trip to the lumber yard!
3zLLva8.png
Organized chaos of planks before assembly
b2OIm0Z.png
First run of the planks glued in place
DIluyar.png
The middle part of the top is at an angle so it's going to be a little tricky
3hSLh1B.png
"MORE PLANKS!" i yelled to the computer and it listened, sliceat and done!
8dfqrDe.png
The top done, time to move on to the front
3eiSbTI.png
The start of whats going to be a room in the castle wall
9jvOz4c.png
The start of the top ledge of the wall
4FkgsN8.png
Lower ledge and the backplate in place
DXelFkO.png
First part of the wall in place
ZDtzyuw.png
And a corner
iTXkwCo.png
First part which really indicates the theme, FOR THE ALLIANCE!
cWjbFwh.png
The front bars bellow the logo is supposed to look like the dungeons inside the walls of Stormwind
ykKTBAH.png
Time for some more walls and bars for the right side panel
026kzsx.png
1/4 of the panels for the right side panel done
rZiirME.png
Half way!
w4560Cv.png
There we go! the right side done
sxtNdiR.png
The same type of bars here since the vents for the PSU is right behind it
tmOk0e8.png
Lets start with the other side
IZ1JG6A.png
The left side panel here with it's panels attached
sFFMBNs.png
Mounted on the case
fosaRmz.png
Another angle, turned out quite well imo
PSZdmfc.png
Did we forget a side? Ooh yea the backside of the case, more walls!
WKpZkSb.png
Lower half done
y7WxL4H.png
Everything printed, time to glue
86SPu9A.png
Holder for a sign complete with a magnet
8BakXqY.png
The holder you saw in the last picture will hold a "tavern-sign" with my logo on it that will be detachable for transit when i go to events like Dreamhack and here it is in pieces
aqjlhl9.png
Starting with the base of the sign
k4lj9ab.png
Logo next
eVcvI8x.png
Tried to 3d-print a chain for it but it turned out quite bad which a good friend of mine @timpelay kindly pointed out ;) this will be adressed in the future
mD0DXI8.png
The beam which holds the sign
0f1mTwn.png
Mounted with the ugly chain ;)
vt4HaVz.png
Magnet attached, will it work ?
RCcwP02.png
It did! :D
z4k08jG.png
The power-button must get some love aswell
VUY9oVP.png
Starting to make a piece that can reach down to press the original button
Xon5SR0.png
And then a frame that goes around that to keep it in place
WRN7arF.png
And finally a button with WoW's logo on it
17LIQHc.png
In the middle of everything i decided my printer needed a home. The blueprints for this enclosure can be found here https://www.thingiverse.com/thing:2864118
4GqMgqs.png
Welcome home! :D
bqYj5VB.png
Here we have the "room" for the front panel which i showed you in an earlier picture
Zhfk1h7.png
Complete with chairs, a table, dishes, pints and ofc cheesehttps://imgur.com/pOjp386.png[/IMG]
Time for some painting, this needs to be done now since it's going to be impossible to do it when its mounted
6FKCaVR.png
Starting with a black base which i can recommend if you are going for a stone or metal look
qHZMVgw.png
Painted Corsairs logo yellow the using a spunge with differend shades of grey, white, brown and black i made the rest look like stone
fNW6z49.png
Accessories for the "doll house" painted
U3OiFa1.png
Glued in place
KEG5YaC.png
You have to put in some goodies in these types of builds and this time it's the legendary sword Ashbringer
ZzleKpm.png
It will get a place of honor in the other room where Asus logo is
iRXBZks.png
Ashbringer, barrel and holder for the sign painted. Note that i also switched out the chain for some real one instead of the 3d-printed one, happy now @timpelay ? ;D
weluhCS.png
Room painted and everything is in it's place
yRtW3KU.png
I decided to mod the cooler aswell and give it a fiting look for the theme. I modeled a sleeve for the pump that slides over it and utilize the built in lights for the alliance logo
rDydj15.png
Comes in two parts to ensure the best quality without supports
5H6zpfa.png
Mounted but not painted, ill fix that!
13tBSqT.png
Took the dremel and made some gashes and bumps in it since stone is not uniform
rITAyNg.png
Basecoat of black, time for some grey's
onN1I1w.png
The best thing about using black as a base is that all of the lowspots will come through nicely with the grey paint on top
mdu5Zty.png
R1zVi00.png
A good coat of grey has been applied, time to make it dirty and weather it
kCndPPq.png
The weathering as begun
XwoeNyj.png
There we go, time for some lights
08wm7N2.png
As i said im using the built in lights on the pump/block for the logo lights and ive used a thin sheet of polystyren as a diffuser and it works quite nice
eTuDxcc.png
Lets switch to the right color, blue!
ofuAijJ.png
The light on the side leaks out to give it a sublte effect around it aswell
eaKUKNK.png
Giving my motherboard a fiting make-up aswell
yqs7qxy.png
Let's start by installing the cpu
rdGfnVT.png
Installing the ssd in the dimm.2 adapter that comes with the motherboard
AgjF8pS.png
This panel can be removed from the motherboard by removing two screws
vfRPrby.png
There we go
tIJdVAH.png
Two panels for the motherboard straight from the printer
lAgTwXe.png
They will be attached like so
GrWe6VO.png
After they have been painted and it sort of looks like powdered candy ( dont eat them )
iGjYHZd.png
The soundcard have a little plate that will get a nice treatment aswell
PVD8LnK.png
Poof!
2W1r6OG.png
Starting to mask of the part thats going to be "metal"
GKcJc65.png
The other parts get a "stone-effekt" applied
1aykanG.png
After that i go over some of the other parts to give it a torn look
u2yzAcS.png
Panel attached with a distressed look aswell
Drccwjz.png
Same for the other one
mzfZXs0.png
After some weathering
Cat5F4f.png
Done!
4ILdpMm.png
oKH6fzC.png
Time to fix the chain and paint this! ( A big thanks to my girlfriend for helping be with some painting )
59Soayi.png
Chain bought at Panduro
Fukyz46.png
A little piece done
FVZdFPv.png
BAM! there we go, what do you think ? It's going to get the weathered and distressed look aswell before it's done
3323oOM.png
Time to start making the stones on the walls look less like Legos and more like stones
StG3WV0.png
A Dremel with a grind bit works well for this
oGqRItB.png
Half the front done
ekl0WYA.png
There we go, then it's just the whole other case  to do :(
VfZCuYe.png
Here we have the floor for the main chamber in the case which is inspired by the floor inside Stormwind keep
jxPSGAL.png
Rombs!
wqPMupE.png
Test fit and it seems to fit, time for paint

Time for the final update of this build.

Since the last update Asus has generously stepped in with another component which is the GPU so a BIG thanks to Asus for that!

The first thing after getting the GPU was to measure it to model up som panels for it. After i've made my measurements i printed a thin frame of it to check that everything was correct. The i painted to match the theme and i think it turned out real nice, what do you think ?

This was the final update so another post with the final images will be posted shortly.

Until next time peeps!

PS. Wrynn be displayed at Dreamhack Summer 2020 in Sweden so if anyone is going swing by and say hi!
