Hi fellow modders,

It was a matter of time but here it is... my first real scratch build

Thanks to Nate from E22 for the design.

Sometimes you see a design with a wow factor. This happend too me with this design. After some consultation we decided to try to build this design.

The design:

The hardware that comes in is still a suprise...even for me ;)/> , but anyway there will be an SLI set and some cool watercooling

After buying aluminum strips and other stuff at the hardware store, it was time to start building. After some fitting and measuring the frame was created. I still had an old Mobo tray from a old TJ07.

DSC00517.jpg

DSC00515.jpg

DSC00513.jpg

Cut some plates of acrylic and placed it.

DSC00518.jpg

For measuring I have an old blown up Classified.

DSC00521.jpg

DSC00523.jpg

DSC00524.jpg

DSC00527.jpg

Made the door/ cover for the PSU

DSC00531.jpg

And cut to size the front plate

DSC00533.jpg

Now it's a matter of drawing lines on the inside. The result after sawing and filing.

DSC00537.jpg

DSC00535.jpg

DSC00534.jpg

Cut holes for the fans at the front and the lid on top covered with acrylic

DSC00554.jpg

Covers closed

DSC00552.jpg

Placed some nice 120mm http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html" href="http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html]http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html">NorthQ fans to see how it looks.

Another update :)/> Need to catch up with my FB updates ;)/>

I have covered the acrylic panels with matte black vinyl and installed some fans to see how it looks

DSC00558.jpg

DSC00562.jpg

DSC00563.jpg

And cut two acrylic plates. 1 for the controller (aquaero VF) and 1 for the lamptron switches

Also blackened with vinyl

I want to build this one without too much cost, so in this build if possible, all kind of stuff that I allready have.

The first idea was to purchase a 480 rad, but also overhere a bit crisis. So it's becoming two 240 rads. That's why I made ​​the front panel again with the fanholes more apart.

Side effect is that it looks better i think, left-center-right all the same sizes between them

DSC00612.jpg

This also blackened and polished the edges.

DSC00632.jpg

Placed the mobo with some EKWB blocks. And naturally straight tubes

DSC00616.jpg

DSC00617.jpg

Almost straight

Man that is so nice. WOW I appreciate your reality check on using some stuff that you already have! most of us living in the real world don't have the money for $6000.00 builds. The E22 design is trade mark and you got the skill to pull it off. Did I say WOW!

This time a big update.

To start with the rad brackets. Dont want this to be too complicated because I still want enough space behind.

Just a plate with an aluminium edge.

DSC00637.jpg

DSC00638.jpg

And have it rest on the horizontal bars

DSC00641.jpg

DSC00642.jpg

DSC00643.jpg

Next job ... a PSU cover. Measured and cut a piece of acrylic and drawn the shape of the PSU grill.

DSC00644.jpg

Cut the grill shape

DSC00645.jpg

Made a bracket ​​to keep the PSU in place.

DSC00653.jpg

And placed it

DSC00656.jpg

Removed the tape

DSC00658.jpg

DSC00660.jpg

Polished the edges

DSC00662.jpg

DSC00666.jpg

Now a little bit time consuming work ... in other builds I've done this before. Ie. single wires true holes.

A piece of acrylic, take some measurements on the PSU outputs, and drill some holes

DSC00668.jpg

Done by hand so not all straight but this will not be visible later on.

Pasted red vinyl and put sleeved extensions true the holes

DSC00671.jpg

Placed and plugged in

DSC00674.jpg

DSC00676.jpg

DSC00677.jpg

DSC00680.jpg

DSC00683.jpg

Did the same thing to the PCI-e cables

DSC00688.jpg

DSC00690.jpg

Nice sleeve curtain

DSC00691.jpg

DSC00693.jpg

All is finished, 24-pins, PCI-e, CPU and molex

DSC00695.jpg

DSC00702.jpg

A lot of work, but then you have something ;)/>

DSC00703.jpg

DSC00704.jpg

DSC00708.jpg

DSC00711.jpg

DSC00712.jpg

DSC00714.jpg

Dismantled everything again because I had a nice idea. Placed a LED strip under the edge of the acrylic cover.

red :)/>

DSC00805.jpg

DSC00807.jpg

DSC00810.jpg

Once busy with LED strips, I came up with the idea of placing some more strips underneath the fans for more red edges.

DSC00811.jpg

DSC00815.jpg

DSC00823.jpg

As regards the PSU cabling... You realise along with the straight tubing you've just set a new standard for the rest of us to creatively aspire to Richard B)

Last update to end the weekend.

The first front plate I have made ​​new with different measurments for the fans, so first one was over.

Cut the Fanholes.

DSC00942.jpg

Some small changes

DSC00943.jpg

Cleaned

DSC00944.jpg

And made an opening for better reaching the aquaero and res

DSC00946.jpg

Made it black again

DSC00949.jpg

DSC00950.jpg

DSC00949.jpg

Placed 2 other GPUs for measurments. Still waiting for the hardware .... and I want to go on :)/>

So no time for waiting ;)/>

DSC00870.jpg

Tubing time!!!

Can't help it but I need to have everything straight ... think it's starting to get an obsession ;)/>

CPU going up

DSC008931.jpg

And GPU's going up

DSC008871.jpg

Nice and clean

DSC00892.jpg

DSC008771.jpg

DSC00873.jpg

For now connected it with adapters, but soon with acrylic tubes. Still need to make nice plate for this.

DSC00957.jpg

DSC00955.jpg

DSC00917.jpg

DSC00920.jpg

Some detail shots

DSC00927.jpg

DSC00934.jpg

DSC00935.jpg

DSC00938.jpg

DSC00940.jpg

Last think I did is making ​​the midplate black. This is finished (I think) because I will run the PCI-e cables through the slanted plate.

DSC00961.jpg

DSC00966.jpg

DSC00967.jpg

DSC00973.jpg

I look forward to the finished product.  This is going to be sweet.
