"I'm just a poor boy, I need a new PC, because my ping is high, frames are low, say goodbye ELO. All I hear's my fan blow, laptop please don't blow up on me........ on me......." - Instalok

 

Hi Sir Kurt, like you, I also want to modify and build gaming PC, I want to learn more about Computers, whether it's about software or hardware. But of course it would be cool if I learn both of it. I don't believe that if you have a nice gaming PC and gaming gears, you'll become better at games instantly, But I do believe that when you got that kind of Rigs, you'll eventually get inside the game, like you're living in it, and that is what will make you better at games. It's all because I wanted to be a Pro Gamer someday that's why I want to have those gaming gears and that gaming PC with super cool components, just like yours. I love your build  sir, it's the greatest build of all time, but that's all I needed I just want to play and win the game. You're a monster when it comes to PC building! Thanks for sharing and Goodluck!

 

To be honest, I only posted/reply on this thread just to join their raffle, I'm just 18 years old, I'm still studying and can't afford to buy/build a Gaming PC. If ever I will be the chosen winner, this would be my first experience of building a PC. So, thanks for the chance Thermaltake! Love this promo of yours!

Thanks for all the feedback everyone.  It's crunch time now... MAXIMUM EFFORT!

 

Began the arduous task of cabling.  Here's a quick test fit I did before sleeving on the 8pin ATX plug:

Then MDPC sleeving applied...

And then test fit in the cable bracket in the case.

I didn't feel like tearing apart the GPUs again, so here's a quick render of the parts and how they fit together:

Hmmm... been going up and down in this worklog, but i can't seem to find the answer.. what are those screws for on those custom cable brackets you showed us in this latest update?
Also, isn't that silver colored cablecomb abit of overkill in terms of cablemanagement making it just for aesthetics?

 

Loving the build so far, looking forward to the completed project.

Yes, the cablecombs are pretty much purely for aesthetics.  They were actually my original cable management plan, and a first attempt at milling aluminum.  The Cable brackets came a little later, but I still like the alum+black look so I'll keep the combs too.

 

The screws on the top of the brackets nest into holes in the cutout on the center wood support.  It keeps the top of the bracket lined up and stable when I slide the center support pocket over the cables and brackets.  I didn't originally think the screws holding the brackets to the case would be strong enough to keep them sturdy with all the cables and stuff going in... but it turned out they were.  A little extra support won't hurt them though. 

 

I'll take some pictures of how that assembly fits together this evening.

Continuing the wiring.  Doing a pre-sleeve run to ensure I get the proper lengths.  I don't have a ton of room in the pocket of the support, so the less excess cable I have to deal with in there the better.
 
Here's a shot of the pocket, and the holes that the screws nest into.

The cables for the motherboard are test run...

And with the GPU cables in there too... it's tight.  REALLY tight.  I do look forward to the sleeving and the cable combs making all of that look somewhat manageable though. :D

For those of you who are enjoying the mod, thanks for the support!!   For those who are commenting for the raffle, thanks for the support, I wish you luck!   :D

 

This is the unsanded clump of resin from a test board I was working on.  It was primarily to get the mix of resin, hardener, and aluminum powder right.

Here's another test spot with the resin (very roughly) sanded off.  A couple small voids, but overall the resin filled in good!

Now time to do the bigger pours....

This is the resin I used.  It's really my first interaction w/ resin and powder, and I had only really done a resin pour once before.  Getting the right ratio of resin : hardener : powder took a few attempts.

And the cable work continues.... it's starting to shape up though.
