  3. Update 29th of January 2015 (again, originally posted @ overlclock.net, and posted here with a slight delay.) SO! Yesterday I ''finally'' got the rubber U-channel I ordered... Took 'em 2 weeks :/ With that I could finish this up, I think ? We're coming closer and closer to the final pictures. I think I'm actually done really, and I'm really happy with the result! These are not yet the final pictures, but the last photo is the final product. The PSU cover also fully done with the paint Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Install and fit everything in again, after 2 YEARS! Yes, my motherboard has been running on it's box for 2 friggen years. SHAME ON ME:p Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Everything in and wired up. Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Sooo, guess what I forgot... The PCI-slot covers and the I/O shield *quickly paints* Almost done ! by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Cold cathode installed (with on/off switch, more on this in another post), PCI-slot covers installed, I/O shield installed. Almost done ! by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Almost done ! by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Before I can install a window, I of course need to cut a hole first Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Happy with the cut Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr RUBBER! I waited so (too) long for this. Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Keeping the edges square, so I had to cut the U-channel for the window in four parts, with a 45° cut on the ends. Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And again, happy with the result Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr It's just the right tint, not too dark not too light. With cathodes off I can just see the components. Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And because the inside is white now, the cathodes give out way more light ! Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Smoked plexi window installed ! And kind it's kind of finished now Progress till 28th of January '15 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Final pics will come soon, I don't know when, but you'll see. I hope you have all enjoyed reading/looking (at) this thread, anyway, I really enjoyed myself making this - in my opinion - very sleek and clean looking machine. Share your opinions and keep on modding! Regards
  4. Update time yo... 19th of January, 2015! (again originally uploaded to overclock.net, and posted here with a delay.) Quite a couple of things have been done, and I came a lot closer to completing this project already! So lets get on with the pictures shall we. Hard drive bay, was opting for the standard holes, but no. Since I CAN put it more to the front, I AM going to do it A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And it fit like an absolute glove! Alot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And I'm at it again, with the rear fan. Since it was still a little restrictive why not cut even more out These pictures show the end result by the way. A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Eww rough spots, moar sanding. A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And this is after a couple layers of white ! A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And I still need a rear exhaust done in the top panel, so here we go! A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Looking quite smooth in my opinion. A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And this is the final result of front and top panel ! A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Masking out the case for some paint, wich kind of failed :/ not 100% happy with the result.

A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And I also got some over spray, which is no problem really, because these are areas we won't be seeing again A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr A lot of work on a lot of different things by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr That's it for this post though! More is coming, thanks for reading and have a good week! Regards.
  5. UPDATE 10th of January, 2015 (Originally posted @ overclock.net posted here with a delay) It's been a couple days, and I'm literally sanding my :) off, I'm ''trying'' to perfect this whole compartment panel, and it's not yet - but close to - done. I know, I could of done it differently, but this way I can put a bigger set of skills to the test. Really this whole build is about learning. Since I haven't posted progress in a while I'm just going to show you how it's going with the compartment I've been working on the last few days. Enjoy! ________________________________ Sanded mostly flat. Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Look at all those bumps :sad-smile Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Polyester, here we go, see if it works, and it didn't do too well, ended up sanding most of it away and still having bumps. Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Oh well, after mounting this plate to the side-panel: more polyester to fill up that space. Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Looks really bad like this Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And then my dad came up to me, and he found some old body filler! PERFECT, here we go! Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr This was after I sanded down the first layer of body filler and I had already painted it too. Now to fill up the little holes and such. Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr All sanded down now its time for primer. Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr It doesn't look too bad in this photo, just wait till you see... Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Whoops. That's 150 grid for ya. This means: a lot of sanding, with 1200 grid then... Wish me luck Compartment panel work. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr It's all coming together nicely I must say, but still a lot of work to do. See you in the next update! Regards!
  6. Thanks for all the positive support, there is going to be some more updates later today! Thanks a lot! Wish I had a paint gun and a small paint booth but it's going alright with cans Oh My God! I never ever EVER expected a comment from the king of modding, your videos have made me go modding thanks so much for the support and much love to you !
  7. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update, 6th of January, 2015 Really don't like it when I don't have a lot of time, but I found some time to get some progress anyway. I said something about the compartment panel earlier, no idea if you missed it but here we go! Just when you thought you were done with this panel, *light bulb pops up* IDEA'S! So there goes the primer Just cut a strip out here. Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Bent a bit of sheet metal to fit in that gap I just cut out. Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Made some good aligned holes in the compartment panel first, then bored them through the new panel. Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Test fit numero uno. In my opinion this looks way better. And this way I can use a bigger window! Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Next up, more holes in the compartment panel, just to make it nice and symmetrical and also to mount it. Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Bit of primer again!! Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Progress on the compartment panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr The ideas, all have been worked out in Solidworks before I did it for real. I've been hiding this render for you all till now Quote from my Overclock.net forum thread. After all the feedback about the colour I'm definitely going with white, and it's looking good imo! Thanks all That's it for now, there's still a lot of blank spaces in this post, and you may be thinking ''what the :) is he doing'' but for now I think it's all going according to plan, man I love teasing; next update you will see how I am going to make it look seemless! Regards, Gerben
  8. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update, 30th of December, 2014 Finished up the priming on the front-, top- and compartment-panel(s) And more ideas at the end! Just an update to end this year with, nice and big! The backside of the front and top panel still hadn't been touched with primer so these get their first layer now. Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And a light sand and paint prime on the second layer. The compartment panel already had one layer, so it's getting it's second layer now too. Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr This is the area were the dent was in the front panel. It's getting some more sanding and then filler primer. The fronts (visible sides) of all the other panels also get a spay with filler. Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr After the filler dried it was time for some wet sanding to get all the last bumps/holes out of there.

Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Panels last primer layers, front and back. by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr The hard-drive cage fits upside down 90° rotated, ON THE ORIGINAL HOLES I guess Cooler Master had this idea before I did? This is most-likely how I am going to fit the drive cage, since I don't need any 5¼'' drive bays. It's a straight fit anyway so can't go wrong with this And this was most likely my last update on this build for the year 2014. I wish you all a happy, healthy and moddy 2015! Regards, Gerben
  9. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update, 28th of December, 2014 A sunny Sunday! As you guys know, bare metal rusts, and you'd be surprised how fast rust grows. Every time I touched the bare metal panels, 5 minutes later there would be rust where my fingerprints were. After a bit of challenge hanging these panels on the garage door it finally happened Priming panels by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr First coat of primer, mainly against the rust. Priming panels by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Oh? well... ''Ghetto'' hanging techniques. This is the reason I could only do one side, but at least it worked Priming panels by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Discovered a small dent in the front panel, looking for a way to resolve this issue :/ Priming panels by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr That awful dent on the front panel was really bugging me, so here I am fixing it! Still had some polyester filling putty left from 2 years ago, and I decided it was time! Time to use that awful stuff again, it worked out pretty well although this putty is really rough. A bit of help from the polyester filler was a good choice Fixed up dent in the front panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr After it dried i sanded it down flat. Fixed up dent in the front panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And a new flash of primer, god it looks amazing when it's wet! Fixed up dent in the front panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr And after it dried, the surface looks nice and flat, although it does need another coat of primer. Fixed up dent in the front panel by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Small steps make for decent progress. I hope you're all enjoying the last moments of 2014! Regards, Gerben
  10. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update, 23rd of December, 2014 Quite a busy day, lets just go to the pics straight away. New panels I ordered came in ! New panels by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr TOP PANEL Cutting down on width slightly Top panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Bent a nice 90° edge on there. Top panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Prepping the all new top panel with painters tape, so it won't get scratched. Also put the old chrome trims from the old panels on there. Top panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Trimming the top steel piece to length, also put on the line where it has to be bent. Top panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Test fit Top panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Test fit with bend, practically finished Top panel preview by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr FRONT PANEL Test fit the front steel piece on the new front panel.

They're fitted with temporary bolts. Compartment work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Compartment work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Compartment work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr REAR Since I have removed the rear fan grille, and since I cut myself on there multiple times, it's on for heavy measures Let's go grind down the pointy points on the rear fan hole Rear fan mount work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Clean clean! Rear fan mount work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr FULL PREVIEW At the end of the day, a fairly nice result if i say myself, next up are probably the side panels.

  11. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update, 22nd of December, 2014 Ideas ideas, maybe too many, but anyway gotta make the most of it. My side-/top-/frontpanels are coming in tomorrow. Which means more mods I'm really liking the progress and how it all works out atm. Hope I can continue like this. Easy measuring My trick to making almost 100% accurate lines on steel. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Le me bending metal :rambo:, oh hey a house. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Always wanted 2 ''compartiments'' so here we go. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Making/fitting some hangers. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Result was pretty good imo. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Ordered 2 new side panels, so this is not the final window cut. Compartment panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr That was it for tonight. Regards, Gerben
  12. Originally uploaded to: Overclock.net - Update: 20th of December, 2014 Hello hello, some work in CAD, some work in the garage, ordered some parts, it's a nice Saturday Here is some progress for you all Who needs 1000 dollar equipment Front panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Front panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Cut cut cut! Front panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr What do we have here? Front panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Front panel work by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr That looks like a job well done there Third, I ordered some genuine coolermaster top, front, and side panels. This is why I had to order new panels: Well as you may or may not know, all panels of this case are drilled full of holes, the top panel is filled with polyester, and the front panel is a bit cut up. Most of this is done 2 years ago, when I first started and I had other plans And a clean start always feels good Oh well, that's that. Regards, Gerben
  13. The Prime by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Hello readers! My name is Gerben Werkhoven, I am from the Netherlands and I'm 17 years old. Case modding really started in spring of 2013 for me. But I quit 5 months after. Back in december 2014, I came back to the modding scene, I still had this CM690II project, which I scrapped all the plans of, and now I'm onto a fresh start with it. New side, front and top panels, and let's get the modding going! What I aim for: I really just want a clean and sleek looking case, with a color scheme that fits my room. I don't have a lot of money for hardware and I will most likely be using my old hardware again. Hardware: Athlon II X4 640 MSI 760GM-P23 2x Asus ENGTX-275 (SLI if I get a new motherboard and PSU) Corsair CX600 Builder Corsair Value select 8GB Dual channel 2x Seagate 320GB HDD Solidworks render preview: Final render 1.0 by GerbenWerkhoven, on Flickr Final pics, more coming though!
