Awesome no other words for it
OMG!!!! What an awesome rig u got there mate. The artworks are awesome, fits perfectly with the blue-white theme inside the case. Really worth as "Rig of The Month" for sure. You must be very very proud with it mate Overall, I really impressed with it. What an excellent job and dedication u got there :thumbup:
Thanks guys, yes im really proud of this build,
I did enter for rig of month at one point, but heard nowt, maybe my bad pics or something let it down, its shiney shiney in the real, pics really suck i think compared.
The blue /white working well i think, even though not everyone a fan of gigs blue/white theme.
Thinking smoked acrylic for side window? what do you think?
You should grab a mate with some camera skills to get proper pics. With good lighting and proper aperture settings, you'll get good results.
Rig of the Month for sure. Nice work, I know you have a great deal of time invested and it shows.
ROTM for me. Well done mate.
nahhh .. I think ROTY
Fantastic job mate, well done
looks awesome wish i had the money to get custom graphics painted onto my case
Wow this is just pure awesomeness
Thanks for all the great comments,
I do like artwork on my modded cases, so obviously a 100% scratch build case, had to have the artwork treatment really, and artist hasnt let me down on this one,
i would expect this one to be with me for a while, quite a futureproof(as far as we can envisage) case, 10 pci, lots of options and watercooling options etc,
If i do another case, with the tiny little points i want to change, i will make sure side panels are interchangeable.
I liked the white powder coat finish, and didnt wanna spoil the look, but the artwork really is working nice.
Artwork as you say, not cheap, more than the cost of making thwe case itself...eeeek,
been along time and an 8 month out of work period, that halted build in between and so on, kinda sad its finished, as no current project now.
Took me ages to find out some white washers for the top panel grill mounting screws, now its painted black. must change that to black ones now.
Artist has taken pic of top grill, incase i decide on a more arty farty new grill for top, as will need to re airbrush that bit to match as before.
must also refold a few corner brackets, as those steel ones looking a bit rusty and horrid.
just read all 13 pages, man cant believe u made this from scratch, top effort!
No words to describe the painting job man.......also not having to forgot the astonishing job done on modifying the case......such a F****N GREAT job man.............you should enter rig of the month )...............wish I could have time & money & do a project like yours m8t
Thanks again guys, wasnt sure on a scratch build, but happy i did, great its now as good as finished.
Pretty much spent out for sure, any other projects on hold really, maybe next year now.
Hey Pablo, what an 'uber' rig !!
Just wow .. how you made that case from the scratch! And so much love for the details!
And the artwork is just amazing. This zombie winter theme does not go out of my head since I saw it the first time !
Fantastic job, man !!
Was never sure if a full cover artwork is the best way to go, as is possible to be overpowering, but im really happy with it,
The thing is its gotta be good and detailed as its something i will have to live with as such each day, a bit like a tatto i think, choose carefully as your stuck with it.
Its gonna be a long time before i get bored of this artwork, matches theme colours just right,
Im using a yellow power anti vandal switch, strangely it looks better than using a blue lit one.
I may try for something a bit less boxy next time, but not easy when limited by machines that i can use.
thought i would add one of them ram block things.
Havent put any water through it as yet, tell the truth it dont need any, but thought id add block, coz i can.
Im hoping it will be fine when i put water through it running on a separate loop, with a 360 rad and d5 pump (he he, talk about overkill).
anyway, a few pics, getting busy inside now, with 4 loops almost done.
oh and sprayed up corner pieces and changed screws to black button heads and tidied up extention eps 12v cable.
Just went though this entire thread. I can see this build has been a very long time coming, but it is so amazing. Honestly, this is some really awesome work, I'm impressed and I can only imagine how accomplished you must feel about this build.
Everything has come along so nicely. It inspires me to want to continue with my build I started a couple years ago but abandoned. Cheers, man.
Thanks man, yeah, its been on and off project really.
Technically its finished, but just do the odd tweak now and again, usually id of started a new one, but too much £ invested in this .
I hear you. I started my first custom case a couple years ago. Have an old school server tower(about 3-feet tall) and I gutted out all the drive bays, sanded all the old paint off of the shell, repainted it a glossy red and I sprayed the inside flat black. I dunno I'd like to start working on it again and make it a totally custom build. I too work in a machine shop and have access to CNC, Bridgeports, Six-axis, metal benders and shears, etc. Hmmm...
Cant go wrong with bridgeports, the trusty old lathe i used was as such, was getting old, so couldnt hold more than about .2mm, but whilst no good for customers jobs, is fine for pc stuff.
Have no real use of machine shop now as i now work with wood.
Would of been happy to take a job for £0, if it meant i could use machines as my pay :nerd:
