  1. can you send me the email id ? then that will be a great help
  2. So here is the final outcome of all the planning ....
  3. hi There i Hav submitted my mod but i did that before loging in to the account but posted all the things. So can you just tell me its being posted or not and how to check it?
  4. Now its time for some acrylic works, Laser cut acrylic parts to make the stands for radiator and other parts as and when needed. After the radiator stand, some addition of gold colour on the small reservoir. Now its time for Gold fittings and Chrome finish copper tubes for the final structure. After dismantling all the parts, started working on the frame again with the extenders and chrome tubes, keeping in mind the things are tight and secured. The greatest challenge I faced in this build is how to mount the PSU as its heavy and need to put in the perfect position. So made a design with acrylic to support it in such a way that the weight of PSU is handled by the acrylic only and doesnt puts any kind of pressure on the structure. And it also helps to put the structure in place. Cooler Master V1000, Thanks Cooler master for this power house, its the perfect power packed yet small sized PSU.... so Liquid Skeleton is going to powered by Cooler Mater V1000
  5. To make the structure more solid at the centre had to import some extenders...
  6. Some more bends, just to check how the loop can be planned.
  7. More detailing after mounting the mobo tray. The Mobo tray is a custom design laser cut from acrylic sheet.
  8. Time to choose the hardware.... and check how they can fit in.
  9. now its time for the structure... need the measurements and plan the exact placing of the things and the hardware to be used. and start the work with the right bends. For that there is a need for the right bending tools.
  10. To start with, first choosing the right colour tubes and compression fittings ...white tubes with red, black and golden fittings, red tube with red and black fittings, chrome tube with golden fittings are shortlisted.
  11. The central idea of this scratch build revolves around In-Win's D-Frame cabinet, an experimental release with nothing more than a bare metal frame comprising the chassis. With hardline tubing and a Gpu, PSU and motherboard, minimal lines would be abundant here, further influenced by the fact that here the tubing would also work as the cabinet frame. So without further ado, here's the idea for Project Liquid Skeleton
  12. Hi… this is all about a new project, and this time it is a scratch build. The basic idea was to plan and design a cabinet that would hold the motherboard and all other accessories like GPU, cooling system, HDDs, PSU etc. in a most convenient way. Oh yeah, and it had to look awesome as well! First I thought about the places to put the components—especially the motherboard, the cooling system, Hard Disc bay and the PSU. Hard Discs and PSU are by far the least heat generating components and hence placed at the bottom of the case. What I concentrated most is the placement of the motherboard. After using quite a few different cabinets and the placement of the mobo in 2 different ways, I always felt that if the mobo is placed at right angles to the traditional setup then it would be optimal for the cooling setup. In a usual system hot air from the GPU usually makes the inside of the cabinet hotter. It also goes up heating up the CPU VRMs and then the hot air actually goes through the radiator if it’s placed on the top. But in case of a horizontal tilt the hot air moving up ventilates through the top and very less goes to the CPU area. This has one caveat though: the usual top mounting radiator position becomes unavailable. So I thought of putting the radiator on the right side of the mobo, i.e. on the front of the cabinet. The reservoir with the pump in front of it.   I started working on this and made a few designs in 3D to see how it was going to look. Then chose a favorable design, worked on the placements and took proper measurements. Here I got a massive help from the Asus India. After showing a brief presentation on the concept they extended their hand to provide me with a motherboard, processor, graphics card and memory modules. With the new hardware on board, I started thinking about evolving the design a bit. A lightbulb flashed all of a sudden inside my head – why not make this a test bench? There are multiple plus points of making a case a test bench type. First and foremost easy removability of hardware, which was a priority in my case. I always tinkered with multiple stuff, and it made perfect sense. But changing the case to a testbed required minor changes. Most importantly, the cooling system would have to fitted and planned in a way that the hardware could be swapped or changed effortlessly. Now its time to choose the name for the build. While looking at the design the first thing came in my mind is the word Hero, and as am going to make a test bench and metal work is going to be there so why not Metal Hero. Now to start the work, need the structure design. I chose Aluminum L channels to make the basic structure and started working on it. As the work progressed I found out that I was unable to keep the right measurements all the time and hence the structure wasn’t going to be precise enough and hold everything in their right places. So as I was looking for some other alternatives, the first thing that came in my mind was to use wood. I got some 1†x 1†6ft long wooden bits to start with, and then bought some tools and found out its easier to work with, so slowly moved forward and completed the basic structure. Wheels and base added to the structure: Time for some Stress Test.... After successful testing time to check the positions of the psu and radiator. Thanks a lot ASUS India for giving me the Maximus Hero, gtx 980 matrix and 6600k.... along with DDR4 ram.... [/color]Now its time to mount the mobo and the essential stuffs, to check the positioning and to move on with the work. Again many many thanks to Asus India for their immense support in this project.... Now its time to put the xspc raystorm Cpu block with custom brushed metal finish bracket... and 90* rotary adapters Firstly the idea was to put Aluminum brushed metal look on red acrylic, but the sticker was not good and after some time it started swelling so just peeled them out and ... After the paint job this is how the laser cut logos r looking like.... The fittings- extenders, 4 way female, both side male and many more just to put my imagination in reality.... To take the measurements and finally how its going to look with the fittings and the tubes A bit of metallic touch to the GPU Now its time to cover the laser cut gaps and make them look great, so planned for a backlit thing and covering the gaps with Red stickers. The Front: The Back: This is how its going to look .... using the 60 led/m 5050 SMD led tfor the backlit thing, so time to put the cover on the main body now.. Final Update..... Time for some Premium Sleeved cables from TweakedPC... with custom length and colour scheme along with Black Cable Combs The 8 [4+4] pins The 24 Pins The Full set of Grey Red and Black themed sleeved Cables Some addition to the black D5 pump and the Pump Top... The Bend Rigid Tube Now its time mount all the coloured parts and panels with a slight change in the panel from the previous post. As Asus India gave me a surprise upgrade from Maximus Hero to Maximus Hero Alpha, The motherboard that comes with the inbuilt LED connectors so i changed the Red coloured back lit vinyles to translucence vinyle that can show the colour of the LED... After putting up all the things, couldnt wait for a test run... and the main idea of Light coming trhough the rigid tubes and the coloured bubbles running through it, came out really well.. as expected.. Now for the final outcome and the beautiful show of the Hero Alpha LED connectors and the Aura software So this is Metal Hero... the Scratch Build powered by Asus India and and build exclusively for them... ---------- Post added at 10:18 PM ---------- Previous post was at 09:30 PM ---------- Here is the video of the whole project.... to witness the cool light effects that this mobo can do
