Hello and welcome to the worklog of my new project "TheGoldenTen"
I was fortunate enough to be chosen to represent Germany in the second season of the "2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational".
2015 Thermaltake CaseMOD Invitational Season 2 - Tt Community
The competition is really strong but I will carry the torch for Germany as good as I can
I will not disclose too much about my idea for the project "TheGoldenTen" at this point (my competitors can read this as well) but I will update this thread regularly with photos and some explanations.
This is what I can say right now: I will mod two stacked Thermaltake CoreX9.
I will use a large custom water loop and triple SLI graphics cards.
As usual, a huge THANK YOU to the sponsors who support this project:
Mayhems - Gosumodz - Asus ROG Deutschland - Thermaltake - NewEGG (premium sponsor) - Avexir - Modworkx
(Bilder von Hardware usw. werden regelmäßig hinzugefügt)
Zwei mal das Core X9 in Schwarz und das Toughpower Grand Platinum 1200Watt von Thermaltake

I need to overthink my last comment that i wrote on FB Your last CaseMod was rly, rly nice! I think that one will be pure Madness more than just pure Epicness, 2 x Core X9, flying SSD's and for sure more that just few suprises ... NICE! Go Eddy!!

Today I started working on the case.
I removed the back panel and mid braces of both cases.
The bottom of the top case also got a treatment because I want to run a lot of stuff through.
Then I prepared a backpanel of 1.5mm thick aluminium.
Preparation for the back panel
And this is what's left when I am finished with the saw :=)

Today I could finally continue.
The two 480 radiators have been aligned at the bottom of the second Core X9.
The next step was to mount the fans and start a test run.
I built a support frame out of wood to avoid pressure on the plexiglass during the drilling sessions.
I have marked the fan holes on the plexi glass and then cut them out with a drill press and a circle cutter.
The holes fit, now I just need to sand the edges and I am done.

I was busy today.
Parts of the mainboard, cooler and covers have been disassembled and painted in gold bronze.
The graphics cards are now set up for liquid cooling and the backplate was painted as well.
Thermaltake Pacific V-GTX 970 V2 (a very nice cooler, if I may add)
Asus Strix 970 ohne Kühler
And this is the MSI X99 Gaming 9 ACK painted gold bronze
The three graphics cards from Asus
And this is how the cards look on the mainboard

The Avexir memory is being repainted as well,
Gently removed the two screws to take off the cover. I slightly heat up the memory bar to remove the heatspreader from the memory.

Both cases are now connected and screwed together. The rear cover is cut into the right length and drill holes are being marked.
The aluminium plate is now mounted at the rear with 3mm screws and nuts.
I have used the new golden washers from www.gosumodz.com
I have changed my mind and the radiators are mounted at the top after all
Riing are gilded too
The fan blades were easy to remove (just by gently pulling)
I cleanded the fan blades and removed some greasy residue. After that, I painted the fan blades. After the paint had dried, the Riing fans are ressambled and tested

I've come a long way today.
Today it was time to take care of the interior panelling.
The side panels are cut into the right dimensions, prepared mounting points for other elements and tapped the M4 threads.
In the meantime, I also painted some more fittings.
First trial is looking good, don't you think?

The first custom cable sleeves are done. Many thanks to www.gosumodz.com, they helped me a great deal with the materials and tools I needed.
This is a test for a "special" coolant We'll see if this turns out as planned (and no, this is not Mayhems)
