- Third Times a charm !!

 

- Had to remake psu cover since Inwin and Gscustomz was supplying a few goods for this build had to keep my sponsors happy and remake it. 

 

- Started by cutting my acrylic , bending, measure and drill hoes for bulk heads , which takes forever because MB has to be removed to remove PSU cover. ( and I did have to disassemble build to install new psu cover which was fine since I was waiting on a few fittings )


- I then prepped for paint by scuffing, cleaning PSU cover , laid stickers, painted, peeled stickers. 
 

- I then took another piece of acrylic and vinyl wrapped that in yellow vinyl so I could some time in the future put a led behind it.
 

(unfortunately was running out of time due to having to step away from modding for a few weeks to focus on the death of my brother in law, who actually was the one who got me into pc’s 14 years ago)

- Time to hide those fan and radiator seams !!!! (all panels were painted front and back and are all removable and interchangeable)

 

Figured I wanted it a bit more sleek and stealth and only way to do that was to hide some seams and decided to kinda hide the huge 400mm radiator in the front.  

 

- Made my measurements, cut, test fit, prep for paint, then paint !

- More filler panels !! 

 

- Decided to hide rear case mesh around rear fan as well, And I knew I was making all of these in advance as well. So every part of the PSU cover was measured around all these filler panels so they could seamlessly interlock.

- A little more cutting !!

 

- Had to do just a bit more cutting to be able to get the PCIE cables to fit in the perfect location.

 

- Disassembled yet once again, cut, filed and sanded cut, painted cuts.

- Coming close to the finish !!!

 

- After everything was measured cut and painted and every cable was sleeved, all holes drilled, it was time for assembly. But not final yet. It’s all in the details so I knew I wasn’t finished yet! 

 

- Started with finishing up the liquid cooling in the upper cabinet and then a bit more assembly.

Last minute disaster !! 
 

- stiff wire Split while sleeving the RGB cable from GPU luckily I was able to save it. 
 

- Nothing a little soldering and heat shrink can’t fix !! And the sleeving covered it up also.  
 

- ( missing some pictures of process of this part, got a camera half way through build & wont let me view images other then on the camera )

- More sleeving ! 
 

- Had to sleeve the fans as well and the 3 foot extensions for the fans! Lots of work for fan cables, but well worth the beauty at the end.

- Finishing up top half liquid cooling & lower cabinet ! 
 

- I wanted the cleanest look possible, so bulkheads and the least angle fittings I would need, all PETG bend work. And honestly for my first time, it wasn’t that hard with a variable temperature  heat gun. 
 

- I did every bend by eye as well, I did have to remake a few bends but no big deal.

 

- The drain was one of the first things I thought of for this build. I really wanted something hidden but practical and fit for the look of the theme.

- Lower cabinet bends and drain support !!

 

- Had to finish up the bends in the lower part of the case, as well as install drain.

 

- Drain ended up being a bit heavy, so I decided to cut the rod of a Coolermaster GPU support bracket in half to get it to fit and use that as a support. End result was awesome !

- Rivet time !!

 

- Was finally time to put the rivets for the top handle in, which also would be one of my integrity points. Because cutting the midplate lip of the case, and not having handle in it wasn’t the strongest.
