  2. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Hello, Welcome to the logs for GOLD RUSH. What is Gold Rush ? Gold rush is an exotic project with 24ct gold plated fittings, Backplate, and whatever else i can get my filthy paws on The case it's self will be, cut up, and resprayed in a white/gold flip paint. Featuring a parallel loop and a gold mine on the shroud, this project will be a show stopper. SPECS! We all love a good read at this part From Coolermaster Cooler Maser MasterCase Maker 5 Cooler Master V1000 PSU Cooler Master Masterfan airflow 140mm From Alphacool Alphacool Eisblock XPX CPU - Intel/AMD - silver matte Alphacool NexXxoS XT45 Full Copper 280mm radiator Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 280mm radiator Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - Nvidia Geforce GTX 1070 M02 Alphacool Eisbecher 250mm Acetal reservoir Alphacool VPP655 PWM - G1/4 inner thread including Eisdecke D5 - Acetal V.3 Alphacool Eisrohr 16/13mm PETG HardTube Alphacool Eiszapfen 16mm HardTube compression fitting G1/4 Alphacool Eiszapfen angled adaptor 45° rotatable G1/4 outer thread to G1/4 inner thread Alphacool GPX SLI Connector - Single - Plexi Alphacool double nipple G1/4 outer thread to G1/4 Alphacool angled adaptor 45° - G1/4 revolvable - 2x inner thread Phobya 90 angle x2 From ASUS ROG ASUS Maximus IX CODE Z270 Motherboard ASUS Strix GTX 1070 OC Graphics card From Cablemod Gold / White Custom sleeved cables RGB-W Hybrid LED Lights +3 extensions From Team Group 16GB 4x4 @3466mhz T-Force XTREEM Gold. Other parts Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.8ghz Design i've never been very good at 3D modeling software, so i do my best in words to describe the mess in the image lol. Now a few things to point out. The loop under the GPU will no longer be zig zagged, it will be a straight 45 degree angle from GPU to Shroud. Around the base of the reservoir and where the fittings meet the shroud, there will be pyrite fools gold set around them, like gold is forming around a hot chamber. The name ''gold Rush'' will be cut from the shroud, and filled with pyrite (Fools gold) for a more authentic look. Sponsor logo's on the front will be made from real 24ct gold leaf. The gold triangles you see on the case will be cut outs, and meshed for looks and ventilation. The mesh will be gold too. Time Frame I'm guessing at 4 weeks, as this is the biggest project i've undertaken yet and by all means the toughest work yet. Media Over the next 4 weeks i'll be doing a VLOG of the build progress, out on the road, at home, wherever i need to go, be sure it'll be on video. i expect 4 episodes 1 for each week. Don't fret, as pictures will be uploaded as i go for the project logs and social media. Teaser Now we can get this show on the road. PICTURES!!!! Fred is on hand to help me out! Cooler Master Masterfan Pro 140 - Air Flow fans][/url][url= From ASUS, The mighty Maximus IX Code Strix 1070 OC Finally The Cooler Master Mastercase Maker 5 I got to work as soon as the case arrived. First i cut and fitted the front shroud (first of 2) You'll see what i mean later I then cut the rear I/o Cover thingy and fitted that Case / Motherboard / Fans and radiators are due into the auto shop on monday to get flip painted. So my next update before then will be the arrival of Alphacool products. Excited now it's all finally moving along. Will bring more updates as i continue.

  4. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Well it's an hour until sunday. Might as well post some photo's now here it is, in all her glory! All fittings are 24ct gold plated Sponsor logo's are solid hand made 24ct gold. Whole Case, fans and motherboard has been custom painted with a pearl white and gold effect. Front of case is engraved and embossed gold. Side window is custom made, engraved and cut. Shroud features fools gold nuggets! Coolant is pastel white with gold particles. GPU and CPU blocks have been custom dull gold chromed. Reservoir and radiator custom dull gold chromed. mesh and vents custom dull gold chromed. Everything has had work done to it, and this build took me 3 months to complete. Will be taking more photo's on sunday or monday with a completely different backdrop and landscape for the cooler master world series. But these photo's are good for now.

  6. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    The new Team Group T-FORCE XTREEM RAM has arrived. With striking looks and a premium feel. This RAM looks like it was designed just for me! Project: Gold Rush is now Finished, and final photo's revealing the rest of the unseen design will be released on sunday night.
  7. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Tonight i spent several hours working on the sponsors logo's for the front of the case. However, i noticed that the front panel would be down at shows, so the logo's would not be visible. So, i've placed on the top/side of the case. This is no ordinary vinyl. Each sheet of vinyl was covered with a fine layer of glue, and then 24ct gold leaf layed gently on top. Once dried, each logo was hand cut to achieve perfection, giving us nice 24ct gold logo's Like this And here is what they look like On top of this, i made a light stand for the project, while it's at shows or events.

    Update: Cablemod Cables arrived! Modflex gold and white full custom made set for the V1000 PSU.

Put them on the PSU and took some sexy pictures Fitted the lights and turned them on.. (warning may cause drooling) More to follow
  9. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold) Major update Window frame is now complete. Bringing me even closer to completion. the design was first Engraved and followed by cut. Once cut i painted them Should be finished modding by monday, then it's a case of waiting for the ram and cables to be completely finished.
  10. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Been working with the block, and loop to perfect it. Here's what i've done last night. Added White to the logo's on the GPU block to make it stand out a little better. Shined everything up And made the fools gold passthrough a little deeper Today i will work on the window frame, and currently marking the progress at 65% complete.
  11. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    update: Watercooling It's been a little while, but everything is here now and i can crack on and get this build finished over the next week. GPU Block arrived I started getting the loop lined up using scrap tubes, to get the size right. Next thing i done was re-spray the GPU block to a nice shiney gold to match the CPU Block. i then messured and cut a 20mm hole out of the shroud for the passthrough. Now that was done, i needed to fill the loop and test for leaks.
  12. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Update: Went out yesterday to buy some needed tools for the next stage of the project. I've also stripped down the ASUS Strix 1070 OC to it's undies, ready for blocking. (Block was due to arrive today, however it's been delayed until tomorrow) Larger update due tomorrow, along side a full video of the loop being done in a time lapse.

    Where's the cooler master stuff ?
  15. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    BIG UPDATE! This weekend i spent 7 hours, gold plating all the fittings from Alphacool. 7 HOURS!!! I was feeling exhausted by 2am this morning. So here's the fittings Chrome stripping took the longest, so i didn't video the whole process. After chrome stripping them, we left them in water to avoid oxidisation. We got bored doing them 1 by 1 So once they were all stripped properlyt and the chrome had gone leaving a yellowish nickle colour, it was time to start the exciting part
  16. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Some more details about some finer details. Coolant The main coolant will be Mayhems pastel white (Milk) And with this i will mix some Gold aurora. Inside the case, on the shroud, i will have 3 gold bars mixed around with some pyrite fools gold. and finally mounted on the top of the case, aa gold and white custom xbox one controller with a custom gold xbox one adapter/receiver. New fittings arrive tomorrow, and hopefully i'll get started on 24ct gold plating those fittings this weekend. pictures to follow tomorrow
  17. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Radiator has been finished and is ready to go. Fittings will be gold plated over the weekend and i'll do the full loop on video. Will have more updates this weekend.
  18. Hello Modders

    Hello, Leonardo I'm sure you'll bring something great to the table. Best of luck
  19. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Updates!! i've begun work on the parts i want gold that cannot be gold plated. So first things first, i stripped down the CPU block I then prepped the block with a white coat before going over with gold. This was to allow the gold to be lighter. i then went ahead with the gold on the block head Once dried, it cleaned up really nice i kind of liked the stands in white, so i've kept them white, will need another white coat later tonight, but not rushed I also done the reservoir top and bottom using the same technique. Radiators are up next, but will need to do this another night. So far i'm impressing myself with this. Clear silicon mold will be made for the ''ACOOL'' logo on the CPU block to allow it to really brighten up.

    I recently forgot to add pictures of the Case and parts getting re-sprayed. So here they are (required according to rules)
  25. GOLD RUSH (24ct Gold)

    Minor update today Using 24ct gold leaf, i covered the front logo to make it stand out more. It's a little rough due to the gold leaf being incredibly difficult to work with on an embossed logo. Will be much easier for sponsor logo's later.
