Hey there everyone! Well I have been busy lately! Finished up Grey Matter, started my Fractal Design build, and also started a 4x2CNC build. I took the case feet from my fractal build and moved them to this project because I have a good idea for them. I want to thank the companies so far supporting this build, I appreciate it!
About this project:
Again I was looking into color schemes that are not often worked with, I wanted to do something unique and creative like Grey Matter, so I decided to use a ROG theme!:thumb: Haha just playing!:duh: I decided on a glossy brushed copper and white theme, I am calling it Cyprus 29. I came up with the name because the first copper mines in the world were located on the island of Cyprus and 29 is the atomic number on the periodic table for copper. I have some copper sheet, white paint and acrylic, brushed copper vinyl wrap. I will be using white Primochill revolvers with 1/2" copper tubing and white pastel liquid. Its going to be an interesting theme and a lot of fun to do!
Don't forget to look here for quick links to my updates! I hope to add videos along the way as well!
[x] Update 1 : March 10 : Panel work and painting. Theme now visible.
[x] Update 2 : March 24 : structure is up! More paint more copper!
[x] Update 3 : April 9th : Structure strength and interior panel work.
Parts bought from MNPCtech.com
M3 PC Radiator screws.
PC Modders Mesh Sheets.
Rubber U-channel panel edge and window trim.
Alright. With all that out of the way, lets take a look at this beast of a case. First thing I did was get it out of the box and tear some of it down to start planning the component orientation. Thanks again to Cooler Master North America for the case! :thumb:
In case you missed them on he Black Frost Fractal build, here are the beast mode case feet from Casefeet.com. I am going to make copper rings for them.
One gripe I found about the case is these glued in filters, they are a pain when it comes to modding. So I proceeded to razor them all out.
For the component orientation I decided on, I will be using the small case on the bottom as a pedestal. and I also flipped the case so the back door is now the front window so I can flip the motherboard 270°.
