hello  :)

- "hello :) "

now we have completed the structure of our X71

- "indeed! so we can beginning to customize inside the case"

and.... aluminium plate

- "always not! :P again we take a wooden board on which I made a hole"

 

16121411151822246614707978.jpg

 

- "we cut it to the right size"

taking place....

- "on the case! :lol: "

okay.... but where???

- "ah! at the bottom of the main compartment"

 

16121411151922246614707979.jpg

 

what it is at your feet???

- "new stencil!"

I only see a red trick....

 

16121411152022246614707980.jpg

 

- "oh! okay! better like this!"

yes!

 

16121411152222246614707981.jpg

 

- "we transfer it on the wooden board"

always we pay attention in this work

 

16121411152422246614707982.jpg

 

- "counter to the backplates, we took a brown paint"

 

16121411152622246614707983.jpg

 

we remove the stencil

- "starting with the letters"

more easy... B)

 

16121411152822246614707984.jpg

 

- "then we take care of the castle"

 

16121411153022246614707985.jpg

 

- "et voilà !!! :) "

like a board of wine bottle boxes

 

16121411153222246614707986.jpg

 

I see you make another hole on this board

- "yes! it is for the passage of the tube coming from the reservoir"

okay!

- "here is how the board in the case"

 

16121812235422246614713231.jpg

hello  :)


- "merry christmas  B) "


we continue customizing inside the main compartment


- "today we care of the front radiator"


yes! we were not going to leave the radiator like this.... so.....


- "we take a gold leaf"


what !!!!!


 


16121812244222246614713241.jpg


 


- "okay.... we take an aluminium plate in this case...."


 


16121812244522246614713242.jpg


 


if you want... but what is this gold leaf????


- "my cutting stencil  :P , I have no more red ...."


 


16121812244822246614713243.jpg


 


- "then, we stay on the red wine theme"


I see that


- "some vine leaves and a bunch of grapes"


we would cut this with our scroll saw


- "before we have drill some holes"


 


16121812244922246614713244.jpg


 


and we start quietly with the first vine leaf


 


16121812245322246614713245.jpg


 


- "nice!"


yes?


- "of course!"


then, we continue on the others vine leaf


 


16121812245622246614713246.jpg


 


- "few minutes later....."


few minutes???


- "no?"


not really !!!


- "well, so few hours later  :P "


 


16121812245722246614713247.jpg


 


we finish all the cutting


 


16121812245822246614713248.jpg


 


- "we remove the stencil...."


and we begin sanding the plate


 


16121812250022246614713249.jpg


 


- "we tweak the details"


 


16121812250222246614713250.jpg


 


modding is not an exact science....


- "yes! As you can see, we added a few cuts on some vine leaves"


 


16121812250322246614713251.jpg


 


and we folded one of the edges of the plate to cover a little more the radiator


 


16122011315022246614718932.jpg


 


- "the idea is to put a backliight to bring out the cut"


 


16122011315122246614718933.jpg


 


yes! because we paint the fairing in black  ;)


 


16122011315222246614718934.jpg


 


- "before leaving for an upcoming update"


here is a small video of my use of the scroll saw


 



 


Merry Christmas  :)

hello  :)

- "hello :) I hope you have a good Christmas"

we continue on the wine cooling mod...

- "with the second radiator on the top of the case"

so aluminium or wood....

- "both my colonel...one aluminium plate"

 

16121812243322246614713234.jpg

 

- "one wood veneer"

 

16121812243522246614713235.jpg

 

- "the whole paste together"

 

16121812243522246614713236.jpg

 

- "we will use these magnetic strips"

 

16121812243822246614713238.jpg

 

- "first taped on the aluminum plate"

 

16121812243922246614713239.jpg

 

- "and then on the radiator"

nothing more ???  :o

- "well... no because we will have the door that will partly hide this plate"

 

16121812244022246614713240.jpg

 

another thing for today?  :unsure:

- "yes! we continue with the back of the case"

inside?

- "indeed!some wooden boards from the box of wine bottles"

 

16121411153422246614707987.jpg

 

- "as you see, they are already cut"

 

16121411153522246614707988.jpg

 

- "second part"

 

16121411153622246614707989.jpg

 

- "third part..."

 

16121411153722246614707990.jpg

 

- "and the last one"

well! we take the profile of the rear outlets  :)

 

16121411153822246614707991.jpg

 

- "I add my little personal touch....."

 

16121411153922246614707992.jpg

 

- "my signature somehow...."

 

16121411154022246614707993.jpg

 

what do you do with this small acrylic plate???

 

16121812234622246614713224.jpg

 

- "I place it on the inner face of my cousin ..."

 

16121812234822246614713225.jpg

 

- "I play with the heat gun...."

 

16121812234922246614713226.jpg

 

- "so that the plate conforms well to the shape of the skull"

 

16121812234922246614713227.jpg

 

- "a small strip of LEDs"

 

16121812235022246614713228.jpg

 

- "by placing two of the leds at the level of the orbits"

 

16121812235122246614713229.jpg

 

okay! and the acrylic plate makes it possible to have a better diffusion of the light

- "that is the idea"

 

16121812235222246614713230.jpg

 

see you soon  :)

hello  :)

- "Hi! :)  today..."

waiting about the sleeving's work...

- "then we present some detail on the door of the X71"

this case have two doors

 

16112106155122246614650884.jpg

 

- "indeed! the large door for the main compartment and a smaller for...."

the low compartment

- "we begin with the large door"

 

16122712063022246614728027.jpg

 

original, the door has a window

- "yes! but we have enlarged this opening, especially in the back and down"

 

16122712063122246614728028.jpg

 

- "fashion is by tempered glass ...."

so...

- "we have equipped this door with its own tempered glass"

cool!!!

 

16122712063122246614728029.jpg

 

- "for fixing we had provided the glass with specific holes"

then we use our screw...

 

16122712063222246614728030.jpg

 

- "and fixing the glass directly on the outer face of the door"

 

16122712063322246614728031.jpg

 

for the bottom door... it is a little different...

- "indeed! we have the barrels at this level!"

then we remove the grid...

 

16122712063322246614728032.jpg

 

we thought to leave the door like this...

- "but it did not fit the door above ..."

moreover, we could not have tempered glass with such an opening

- "we therefore opted for another solution"

new aluminium plate!

 

16122712063422246614728033.jpg

 

- "fixed on the outer face of the door"

 

16122712063522246614728034.jpg

 

why this aluminium plate....

- "to extend the door to the bottom of the case and cover the base"

 

16122712063622246614728035.jpg

 

- "we return to the principle of wine cellar with its walls"

 

16122712063622246614728036.jpg

 

a small passage from the grinder....

- "and some black paint to recover the opening"

 

16122712063722246614728037.jpg

 

first we recover the thickness of the tempered glass

- "and we remain in the theme!"

the two barrels are ideally in place in the cellar!

 

16122712063822246614728038.jpg

 

we continue in our delire of wine cellar

- "with this Led candle!"

 

16122712063922246614728039.jpg

 

we wanted to recreate the sieved light that prevails in a cellar of this type...

- "so as not to disturb the good vinification of the grapes within these barrels"

then we open the box of these candles

 

16122712064022246614728040.jpg

 

the goal is to recover the candle-light system

 

16122712064122246614728041.jpg

 

- "and to overcome the batteries"

 

16122712064222246614728042.jpg

 

- "then we remove the batterie connexion"

 

16122712064322246614728043.jpg

 

- "we repeat the operation on our 8 candles"

but we will use only 6

 

16122712064422246614728044.jpg

 

we put the candles in two on a small piece of wood

- "each candle is powered by a 3 V battery...."

we place two with the resistance that goes well

- "for a 12 V supply"

 

16122712064422246614728045.jpg

 

black paint!!!!

- "yes!"

no problem with this painting???

- "no! it works nickel"

okay!

- "and black is better than this green PCB"

 

16122712064522246614728046.jpg

hello  :)

- "happy new year  :) !!!"

today we will talk about cable...

 

16122712072622246614728047.jpg

 

not that the original cables are not so good  :P

- "but we like to have different cables with the proper length"

then we begin with the ATX cable....

 

16122712072722246614728048.jpg

 

- "crimping sequence"

 

16122712072822246614728049.jpg

 

- "but it is not the hardest ....."
ah?

- "I have prepared you everything for the next step"

 

16122712072922246614728050.jpg

 

- "while cuc starts the sleeving, I put the small sequence video"

 

 

- "so!"

I finish the ATX cable

- "and your fingers!"

it's okay....

- "a bit like mine that got hot when cutting the bottle  :lol: "

quite.....

 

16122712221722246614728065.gif

 

- "for this mod, we choose to show a large part of cable management"

specially on the backstage

 

16123012042022246614737560.jpg

 

we try to bring together the different wires

- "fortunately we have these cable combs"

it helps in effect  :P

 

16123012042122246614737561.jpg

 

in the main compartment

 

16123012042222246614737562.jpg

 

on the ATX cable we choose this red color quite similar to the color of red wine

- "for the PCIe we choose this brown color to be in agreement with the backplate in wood"

 

16123012042422246614737563.jpg

 

little cable management on this PCIe cables

 

17010210420322246614745480.jpg

 

- "we show you now the result with the acrylic plate in place"

indeed! later we will only see one part.....

 

17010210420522246614745481.jpg

 

- "oups! sorry! better without protective plastic...."

 

17010210420622246614745482.jpg

 

and the CPU cable?

- "well! we only see a little part on the main compartment due to the proximity of the large radiator"

so!

- "so we don't make sleeving on it...."

okay! only black wires

- "yes!"

and what this?

- "plate!"

funny plate!!!

 

17010210420722246614745483.jpg

 

- "we will have a lot of cable for different LED strip...."

oh yes....

- "then we will connect them with this plate and these connectors"

 

17010210420922246614745484.jpg

 

- "welding sequence"

 

17010210421022246614745485.jpg

 

- "this type of plate facilitates the connection between plugs"

 

17010210421122246614745486.jpg

 

another plate....

- "yes! we need a support"

 

17010210421222246614745487.jpg

 

- "a little blow of milling machine"

 

17010210421322246614745488.jpg

 

- "two holes to ensure fixation on the case"

 

17010210421422246614745489.jpg

 

- "and a little glue gun to set up the connectors"

I think we're going to need to do more....

- "I think so...."

 

17010210421522246614745490.jpg

 

see you soon

hello  :)

- "hello! :)  it's time installing the hardware on the X71!

okay! then go go go!

- "we start with this little wooden board :P "

???? .... and the components!!!

- "it's coming"

 

17010601182022246614751364.jpg

 

- "but first, I have to take care of the CPU's waterblock"

 

17010601182122246614751365.jpg

 

- "and as on the motherboard we will integrate wood veneer"

we have tweaked the cut....

 

17010601182222246614751366.jpg

 

to make it fit

 

17010601182322246614751367.jpg

 

- "we just have to install the waterblock on the motherboard"

we put it in this direction but ...

- "after reflection, we turn it a quarter turn"

 

17010601182422246614751368.jpg

 

- "now we can install the new memory module"

with their red LED lighting system!

- "a choice that fits with the theme"

 

17010601182622246614751369.jpg

 

- "as our choice on the color of the ATX cable sleeving"

a red a little darker to resemble the color of the wine  :)

 

17010601182722246614751370.jpg

 

- "we find our cache for the chipset heatsink"

and the single passage of the different cables coming from the front panel

 

17010601182922246614751371.jpg

 

- "an overview"

 

17010601183022246614751372.jpg

 

- "behind me, we have the wooden boards from the bottle of wine bottles"

in front of you, we can see the PCIe cables with their sleeving of brown color

 

17010601183222246614751373.jpg

 

why this choice of color?

- "I thought it was fine with our wooden backplates"

okay!

- "moreover, we have passed the cables over to try to compensate the weight of the waterblocks that tilt the graphics cards...."

very little compensation...  :huh:

- "yes....it lacks a reinforcement subjected to the square on this cards...."

 

17010601183422246614751374.jpg

 

- "the wood is just laid on the original backplate of the waterblock"

with a small piece of double sided tape

 

17010601183522246614751375.jpg

 

- "Led strip located behind the head of my cousin is subject to the system aura of the motherboard"

we kept the original backlight system of the motherboard

 

17010601183722246614751376.jpg

 

we take advantage to install the radiator at the front of the case

- "provided with its specific cover"

 

17010601183822246614751377.jpg

 

it does not miss something?

you want to talk about that ....

 

16110401460422246614605940.jpg

 

the ROG logo does not really fit the theme

- "indeed! we will correct this"

okay and...

- "as you can see it is in progress... B) "

 

17010601183922246614751378.jpg

hello  :)

- "hello!  "

what are you doing with this tool?

- "it is a special glass drill"

 

16122011321922246614718935.jpg

 

but I don't understand! we have already cut our bottle

- "one of the bottles  :P "

one of???

- "yes! we have two bottles on this mod"

two!!!

- "on this second, we have to drill a hole"

 

16122011322022246614718936.jpg

 

- "first, we will stall the bottle so that it does not vibrate"

 

16122011322122246614718937.jpg

 

- "then we place the chatterton on the piercing point"

necessary?

- "well.... not really...."

 

16122011322322246614718938.jpg

 

and this modeling clay???

- "it is our little volcano  :lol: "

 

16122011322422246614718939.jpg

 

what???

- "no! in fact it is to contain terebhentine essence"

 

16122011322522246614718940.jpg

 

ah....

- "yes, this prevents the glass from heating during drilling"

 

16122011322722246614718941.jpg

 

- "we go there quietly and we reach our goal"

 

16122011322922246614718942.jpg

 

- "we have our bottle with his little hole  :) "

 

16122011323022246614718943.jpg

 

- "here we ripped a little...."

we have to admit that it would be better with a drill press

- "but we have not this tool ...."

 

16122011323122246614718944.jpg

 

- "then, to minimize the risk"

we manufacture a plexi guide

 

16122011323422246614718946.jpg

 

- "and voilà! wWe can set up the watercooling fitting"

 

16122011323222246614718945.jpg

 

after the bottle we have a glass too!!!

- "indeed"

 

17010601165922246614751349.jpg

 

- "but not a real glass....."

ouch! you risk breaking it by dropping it!

- "not really because it is made of PET"

 

17010601170022246614751350.jpg

 

- "we take a piece of POM"

for?

- "to install the glass"

 

17010601170122246614751351.jpg

 

- "to ensure the holding of the glass, we fix two screws"

more easy drilling the PET  B)

 

17010601170222246614751352.jpg

 

- "yes! as much for larger holes"

 

17010601170322246614751353.jpg

 

- "the advantage is that we can screw the fitting"

 

17010601170322246614751354.jpg

 

- "after reflection we position the fitting lower"

luckily we took several of these glasses  :P

 

17010601170422246614751355.jpg

 

as regards the sealing???

- "we test it with success!"

good

- "but for the bottle, we need mastic adhesive"

 

17010601170522246614751356.jpg

 

- "and we let dry...."

 

17010601170622246614751357.jpg

 

- "we have another surprise!"

really?

- "yes! the grape comes from the vines"

yes....

- "we will take this vine for the mod  :lol: "

 

17010601170822246614751358.jpg

 

- "a small fastener to ensure the top of the vine"

 

17010601170822246614751359.jpg

 

- "and we place it on the backstage"

I understand why you said that cable management would go to the background  :P

 

17010601171022246614751360.jpg
