Hello here!

Let me introduce you my new build : Reversed Gaming Build!

First of all, I want to thanks a lot my sponsors, without their support, this project would not have been possible.



As you can guess, maybe there will be a third one soon :biggrin:

I used to always begin my workblogs by a 3D render, but here, i want to keep secret of the final design... BUT here is a teaser :


Without spoiling that more, just to describe the general idea, this will ba a (big) tower form factor scratch build. The motherboard will be reversed (captain OBVIOUS!), there will be a lot a milled acrylic aaaaannnnnddd, there will be RGB lightning.

I have one big aim with this build. I want people who hate RGB lightning to watch this mod and say : "well, it's not that 'LSD flaming unicorn style'..."

Now, let's list the hardware :
  • Motherboard : to be announced
  • Processor : AMD R7 1700X
  • Graphic Card : to be announced
  • Memory : Corsair VENGEANCE RGB 32GB (4*8GB) 3000MHz
  • PSU : Corsair RM650x
  • SSD : Corsair MP500 120Go
  • Fans : Corsair HD120 RGB
  • Lightning kit : Corsair Lightning Node pro

For the watercooling parts, it's will be a full EKWB build :
  • WB CPU : to be announced
  • WB GPU : to be announced
  • Rad : EK- XE480 and PE360
  • Fittings : EK-HDC 12mm (white/nickel/black)
  • Pump : to be announced
  • Watertank : home made

And now, pictures of the 10kg+ acrylic plate (20mm) and the small sheet of 2mm aluminium which will be used for this build.



See you soon, thanks for reading!

Hello!

The job on aluminium is on it's way, and today i will introduce you one of the main tool for the case building : a sheet metal guillotine!

The interest of such a tool, is to do perfects cuts. Depending of the model, you can be limited by thickness and width. In my case, 2mm aluminium is a maximum, and 600mm width (all the case is designed with those limitations).

Here is the beast :






You can block your sheet with this thing :




So you can do precises and parallels cuts.
Then you just have to let the blade do its job!



I will proceed like that for all my jobs with aluminium, but sometimes, i will also bend it.

After getting my alumium plate, i drilled ATX pattern for the motherboard, and here is the mobo tray (with OP hardware!).



That's not a big step forward, but i'm still waiting for the answer of my last sponsor... And i worked a lot on 3D sketches to be printed, i hope to show you this next week!

Thanks for passing by!

Hello!

Today i will introduce my PSU box!

This box is design to receive the PSU (CAPTAIN OBVIOUS!!!), support a 2.5 SSD and hide some cables.
This is made of some aluminium plates :



PSU fit well inside :



And for the last side of the box, i've cut a Corsair logo in a 5mm acrylic sheet :



I did some ventilation holes :



I removed cover on the acrylic to sand around the logo, make a BIG hole for cable (i will put a well designed aluminium sheet later).



Almost finished :





I need to sand a bit more in the ventilation holes, maybe i won't keep the two holes in the angles, hidding them with aluminium sheet.

Thanks for reading, see you.

Hello,

Look what i did today!








You may have noticed that i completly failed on the lower left corner... I think i will fix it with resin.

I didn't do the 3D models i wanted to... But here is what i've already done :

A 10cm wide Corsair logo for PSU box :



Small EKWB and Corsair logos (13mm for the EKWB model) :



And a small clue on the brand of the motherboard.... A 120mm fan grill :



Small clue...

BUT i do not have any news about sponsorsing!

Hello!

My piece of acrylic is almost done !

I did a leak test... Without seals.... And believe me or not, but there is leaks!

Btw it gives an idea of aestetic :





You may have noticed that side of acrylic piece are more transparent than they were.
I've used a nice method to get a really clear look, i will call it :

PURIFIED BY FIRE

It's quite easy, I just used a blowpipe (with orange/yellow flame) and heat the side of the acrylic.

I've done some photo before and after, but it's a bit ugly :








Now, i will have to prepare the others acrylic pieces (just mill them to the good size, channels will be done on an other milling machine later).

Next update in two weeks!
