    GAME HARD, FOLD HARDER

    Thank you very much! *brofists Dutchie* Well I would gladly do one for you if you pay for the parts and materials well the thing of making a mod is to do it yourself if i would have someone else do it, it ruins the fun of having one. Well that partly is true. But having a mod is also about having something personalised. I also cannot do everything myself. But I am still very happy about it. I think having the idea / vision / design yourself is THE most important thing. I do a lot of PSU sleeving for others because they don't have the tools and the experience. It is still their mod

    I am located about 20 KMs south of Rotterdam in a small village under Spijkenisse. How was living in Holland for you? Are you Dutch or American by birth?

    Then I couldn't stop myself anymore. I just HAD to see how it would end up. Grabbed a 3mm thick XSPC radiator, 4 orange fans and the mount. :drools: I love it so much. That black with orange. Here is the beast that will be fitted to it. The thick 480 XSPC radiator. But it was all scratched and stuff. So I taped it up, sanded it, cleaned it and spraypainted it. There. Good as new.

    And then FINALLY something arrived for the United States of Americana. Unboxing whooooooooooooo exiting!!!! What will it be? It is .... it is.... YEAH it is my DWOOD Murdermod style radiator mount he made for me custom. It is gorgeous. I love it. Such a great idea by Murdermod and DWOOD does very good quality. Only .. it doesn't fit my TJ07 :facepalm: Due to my amazing measurements. I will need to take a few mm off the top to make it fit. I am such a dumb*ss :dash: :weep: :seriouslywrong: Man I was upset with myself. Oh well at least it fits. But now I have to work on this beauty.

    I also received an amazing box from Logitech. I did not know what they would sponsor the project with. Gladly Ben, Loes and Gezinus recognised this PC needed parts to operate it and since the hardware will be strong enough to play some serious games on it they provided the project with some serious gaming gear. A G19 gaming keyboard, a G35 surround headset and a G9X laser mouse. Needless to say....I was stunned The mouse comes with a changable cover which means I will probably mod the looks of it to suit the build even more. I also cannot wait to get the keyboard to show the CPU Mhz and other important information. I am still thinking about the headset. I think it is moddable...but ruining it is amongst the possibilities so I might just leave it alone. They will work with the project very well as I also am planning to do a bit of benchmarking with games and in general to test this baby. Check out the pictures! (like I said I didn't have time to make decent pictures yet so I made a few today, there will be FAR better pictures made by a decent photographer later on in the end of the build). Thank you very much Ben, Loes and Gezinus for helping this project out!

    I completely forgot about one package and I had to still make decent photos of another one. I will add them here both. First off the package from Xilence. They have a lot to offer but I already had a lot at the moment in time. But Bastian hooked me up with one (well accidentally two) HDD coolers to fit in a 5,25 inch bay. They are really nice looking. Stealthy and clean. And he sent me a few 92 mm fans for the back of the case. I will spray them black probably or black with a touch of orange. Then I can tell more about how silent they are. They look like quality fans though. Especially the single fan with the complete red inside. Looks very well put together and has kind of a cool design to it. Here are the pictures. Something went wrong in the warehouse so I ended up with 3 packages. 3 fans and 2 HDD coolers Thank you very much Bastian for your efforts to help this build out and with your great communication :thumbsups

    Yeah I personally came up with the idea to use multiple thin layers of plexi and that it would be bolted from underneath like the original grill. Also the hexx design. Ricardo then made that into an actual working model with the correct fitting holes, screws, fanmount system and dustfilter. The guy is ace. www.coldzero.eu

    Later on I received a package from Samsung. They were so kind to send me a desktop kit of a series 830 64GB SSD. I have bought another one just like it to put into RAID. But I am also trying something different with one. More pictures of that later on. These things are not only very fast and reliable, but also fit my build perfectly in colour. I love them (and bought one for my regular PC as well). Thank you very much for arranging this SSD for the project Arafeh!

    Got me a nice package I was waiting for Yep a package from Nils. Not just for me this time as I was also working on a PSU of a friend. But I finally got my crimping tool. AND some orange (in your face) sleeving and some nice shade 19. I already have black so now I think I have all the colours I will need. I also received 12 of these. Yes 12. I love these fans and have always wanted to use them in a build for me. They will be used for the radiator(s) as well as general use.

    Thanks It was really what I was going for. Thank you very much. I totally agree. Did you do it yourself? Did what may I ask? Create the grills? I designed them, but a Portugese company lasercut the grills from layers of plexi. www.coldzero.eu

    Finally started on the top panel one. Again it consists of 3 plexi pieces with a dustfilter (and a spare dustfilter). The other plexi plate is for measuring the hole that needs to be bigger on top of the case as it originally house 2*120mm fans and I want it to house 3 and a radiator. Not an easy feat since it is 4mm thick aluminum. One extra strong grinding wheel was completely gone after 4 cm. So I brought out the jigsaw again. Like a knife through butter. Spent about 1 hour filing the hole to the correct shape and fit. It is being fitted from the inside like the original. But with extra strong holding points near the 5,25 inch bays. A few pictures of all 3 grills in. The top one NOW isn't flush with the top. it will be eventually. And that looks WAY better. At some point a rad will hang from the grill making the top sqeeze the dustfilter flat and making the grill lower into the case. I also have some washers to use if needed for an extra 1,5 mm. I am even more happy with the top grill than the side grills. IRL it looks absolutely amazing. Later on with better lighting I will get my neighbour with his SLR to make far better pictures. But for now you will have to do with this sadly. Sorry.

    One big update coming right up! So I received the custom grills and they are :drool: The package arrived from Portugal. Ricardo did an amazing job. Here is one assembled and one in pieces. Each grill is made up from 3 plexi pieces and a dustfilter. Plus a bunch of screws to keep it all together. It is actually completely flush with the sidepanel. The round edges on the panel itself make it look like otherwise in the picture, but it is. The fun thing with these grills is you see more orange the more diagonal you are looking at it. Looking at a 90 degree angle you hardly see any orange. I absolutely love them.
