Probably it would be a good start to greet everyone reading this post. I am a student  from Slovenia. I had to much free time in summer so I decided to mod mine CM 690 II, so I could be proud.I have been planning this for one month, though I'm not 100% how will it developed. Goal is to build something different from builds that u are used to, aka black and red themes. There will be much more colours, but mainly white. And black.

Hardware is going to be:

  • i5 4570
  •  
  • Biostar Z87X Hi-Fi 3D
  •  
  • 4GB G.skill (1600(CL9) + some sticks on which says 2x8GB
  •  
  • Samsung 840 250GB
  •  
  • WD Caviar Green 2TB
  •  
  • Club 3D 280x RoyalQueen
  •  
  • Lepa B800
  •  
  • CM 690 Advanced B&W 
 

Yes, nothing tempting but good enough. U agree?

 

I already did some major mods like painted case with snowy white:

Installed Motherboard and PSU + removed HDD cage:

Then I recycled some very thin aluminum panel and made first PSU shroud, but decided to make better one and shroud  for DVD 5.25" bays.

Then i got idea how to mount an SSD, with motherboard standoofs.

Final look of shrouds, very pleased with results. Its exactly like how I dreamed it would be :) I guess thats the most important.

I wanted to have 280x and 250mm reservoir in that case so I decided that cutting is necessary.

I also made a sign with my project name on it. Idea was to glue characters on plexi and then light it up with LEDs, but it was too hard to read them...then I decided to glue them on a carbon sticker.

Hello readers. Last  friday and saturday we were having a big informational fair in Slovenia, where my computer was exhibited. This fair was meant mostly for teeangers to help them decide what they want to became or how do they want to start their career. I'm currently studiing as a computer tehnician so it was a no brainer about bringing my computer there  :)

 

The place was really well lightened so I could take some photos while no people were around. There were bunch of people gathering around my computer all the time, and I told them why this computer is so special and how the liquid cooling works. Everybody liked it and I met some new friends. I really enyojed these two days, there some nice girls too  :D
