  1. Hi Everyone I guess this will be the last batch of Pictures for this project I really enjoyed working on this but then again there is no such thing as finished hehehe there will always be a few bits and bobs to be tweaked every now and then And that is a wrap for Core X71 Bulgar! Once again than you very much for the support! I will see you guys on the next one
  2. More please
  3. Update time Back to cutting some panels This one is for the Front panel For the lower side panels Scoring the Acrylic sheet helps a lot with the accuracy of manual cuts Test fit Some more pieces for detailing. Sanding with an angle grinder. Stick em' up. Started to paint the sliding panels. This one is for the top of the case. Labelled the handles for the sliding panel. and here we are End of the quick update thanks!
  4. After a long time I am back with some updates, Modding has stated to pick up since the construction of my little workshop is finished Here we go, Watercooling should be an option with this simple test bench so i found a solution where I can mount a Radiator and a Pump+Res and yes a 3d printed fan grill The plan is for it to be mounted on this position. Back to the bender for a custom bracket. Now we have this and I know this is not the best looking solution but I strongly believe that it will work for me Screws on! Pump+Res+Rad mounted, it still needs additional support on the lower portion but I'll get back to that later because I want to try and watercool this now CPU block Pacific W3 and behind it is an Intel Core i5 6600K that i forgot to take a photo of since I am too excited but I guess we've all seen that before Pacific 90 degree fittings installed Tubes done annnd the here are the random shots I've tested it for leaks and luckily there was none, Some of the parts for this mod are being detailed already and those will be up on the next updates later!!
  5. Hey man! thanks for checking the build log, you got a handful of awesome builds and you work super fast Hi, I am very sorry for the lack of updates it was due to the renovation that is still ongoing and my modding area is part of it but now I am back as I've found a small spot where I can continue my work I have also brought in some help with the help of a vinly cutter and a 3d printer which I got a very deal on yay! So I have some updates First off I have manually cut a couple of EVGA logos with a scroll saw, these will be put on each side of the sliding panels. I spent most of the holidays with the family and the 3d printer lol, It was frustrating at first because I have zero Ideas on how it works but after plenty of playing and tinkering around as well as reading I guess I got some decent prints or usable at the very least I do not know how to make my own designs just yet as I am still focused on understanding its dynamics as a whole so I just print stuff that I find online which suits the mood for the project Something has to hold the PSU on the test bench so.. Mobo Stand off For the GPU One of the things that I've learned a few days ago was converting JPEG files to ohh I forgot the file format haha then to STL as a 3d printable file, so I tried it on the Gear up logo and wow it worked then I just made a few adjustments to better suit my taste. Short update but there will be more to come soon! see ya' around!
  6. Hi everyone I am back with a few Worked on the mobo tray My handwriting is super bad lol Removing those 2 thumb screws will make the mobo tray pop off the it's base. Yes in every project I have to mess one two or three things up lol have to retouch one of the stand offs as it was not on point, The Z170 Classified K fits right on top of the custom tray EVGA 1000G sitting in there nice and tight. And some angled shots Thanks be back in a jiffy!
  7. I am very sorry for the lack of updates this past few week but hey I'm back on track Also sorry but the pictures that I have right now are not with the best quality it is raining all day when the sun comes back tomorrow I'll take it outside for better images Let me go back with the case, here is the skeleton for the modular test bench It fits exactly as planned. Tubular aluminum to thumb screw the test bench on to. Ohh sliders <3 I also need to make handle bars out of flat aluminum. Manual bending yeah! The integrity of the case has been compromised since most of its parts was removed so I have some reinforcing to do. Connected! Custom acrylic panels will be placed on the sides of the case mounted on the sliders and I have to give those sheets some curves. I have been bending acrylic sheets with a heat gun since day 1, I guess I'm tired of that Very timely a friend handed down some Nichrome wire yes it's time for a DIY line bender. (I just followed some youtube guide on how this is done) Power source is a PSU that I took from an SFF PC that I haven't used for a very long time, I try to save money whenever I can So with some ply board, nails , wood screws, alligator clamp, old PSU and Nichrome wire we now have this Time to use it on the panel for the project. Mounted! I will be back with better images of the progress! thanks
  8. A few updates for now, I have always used sleeved extensions on my previous builds so I am not an expert in sleeving but this time I am giving it a shot and I would like to get it out of the way because I am really slow at this. Color of the sleeves are Black, Carbon and very little white on the 24 pin cable. So here we go A good friend gave me one of his DIY pin extractor, thanks man! Here is the 24 Pin cable. Cables for the GPU EPS 12V and some other shots I haven't done the Sata and 4 pin molex yet because I ran out of Carbon sleeves So I have slow progress right now but I think that it's better than none Thanks and see you on the next update
  9. Hi it's been a short while and I am really happy that I can finally post some progress on this work log, Schedule has been really tough for me in the past few weeks but I got everything figured out now so I will be posting updates every week. To kick things off lets start to strip the case down. They were really easy to remove. For this batch I used a drill to take out the riveted parts. I'm really not an expert in sleeving that is why I use sleeved extensions on my builds but I want to try it out this time, Clean looking cables from the front I/O would be nice. The front audio cord needs to be stripped off its rubber coating because I only have 3mm sleeves. I am very slow at this lol this took me about 30 minutes. And yes! but I don't know where I can get a sleeve that would fir the USB 3.0 cable EVGA! Lets unbox them!! Lets start with the memory modules The 1000G Power Supply Superb packaging! I am going to sleeved them later down the line. Lovin' the hammered finish The Z170 Classified K Motherboard Shroud for the rear I/O Beatifulll!! EVGA Classfied 980ti Very nice! we have bonus items Going back to the card itself. It is massively awesome! That was a blast! So that took a lot of time for me because I was really amazed with your products and by the way this is my first time using EVGA gears Going back to the case The case has temporarily lost its rigidity when the motherboard tray and rear panel was removed so aluminum bars to the rescue! I like using aluminum bars because they are easy to cut and file. I also gave the case a little tilt It not super sturdy yet but it will be later 3mm Acrylic will serve as out motherboard tray for this project, some cutting and measuring. Aluminum bars for the skeletal system of the modular test bench. http://i65.tinypic.com/2a4tmj6.jpg http://i63.tinypic.com/34e28mh.jpg So those are all that I have so far, I am working on the measurements them cut them altogether then screw or have them riveted to the relevant points. Next update will be on the weekend, see ya!
  10. The case for this project has finally arrived it is a Core X71 and here's a quick look. It comes with a couple of Riing 14 Blue out of the box which is nice though I am not going to use them for this build. The case is tall I like it Next is to dismantle some parts of the case and for that I will be back very soon
  11. Hi Thanks! I will try both but yes permanently I would like to use an AIO for this
  12. Hello again everyone! my name is or Mickee from the Philippines and I would like to present this build/casemod called BULGAR. As of now I have a simple sketch of the casemod that I have in mind, this will be based on Thermaltake's Core X71, I named it BULGAR which is a Filipino urban word for revealing. by far here are the things that I have in mind for this casemod: - Create a modular test bench that perfectly fits the case - Remove the back panel and both side panels of the case for easy removal of the modular test bench. - Motherboard will be laying on a 45 degree angle tray. - Fabricate brackets that will support the case since it will be without the back panel, motherboard tray and both side panels. - Fabricate custom covers for the side of the case but it will not be a full cover panel - Color Scheme for the case is Black, White and Orange. - Watercool the CPU. Some parts of the design might change as I go along the process but I have high hopes with sticking to the plan, So for now I am sourcing the materials that I will use which are mainly Acrylic and Aluminum sheets as well as Aluminum bars. I will be back with actual progress on the case and other components again thank you very much and have a great day.
  13. Update time, Final Shots of what has become of the Case. Thank you very much for the opportunity of sharing this build
  14. Update Time, here is the finished internal layout of Project Fusebox in no particular order Thanks! be right back
  15. I will be back in a few thanks!
