  1. Final Photo Thanks to THERMALTAKE for competition invitation.its would be nicer if i have DDR5 mobo to see it glow Video will be uploaded tomorrow
  2. Cutting some stainless steel sheet for added element test fit 100% without glue or tape very precise tolerance also change to cyan colour acrylic to replace the original white led bar and a little sanding at edge with 2500 grit sandpaper
  3. My diy anodize system 3Amp with automatic voltage psu Dipping the part in 15% sulfuric acid for 1 hours Not sure what blue colour is this more like with purple tint dye Waiting the part to dry for awhile before sealed process Done look very nice with tool mark
  4. at the same time im doing some ram base to stick for showcase Cleaning the part to remove all grease with ultrasonic cleaner the part look nice and clean Etching process ,im not trying to remove all the tool mark just to make it less visible so it have some texture that why i am machine with that pattern Etching with NaoH 2% solution to water its react very fast
  5. flipping part to do some chamfer with diamond bit
  6. Once done sandblasting i am trying to make all the ram will fit side by side on motherboard slot ,this process will remove some material to make it thinner and added some position circle to flip the part and chamfering,since after sand blast all the shiny part is gone.
  7. for this part we sandblast the part with glass bead to increase visual effect for added element later.
  8. Machining 5052 Alu ,its just rough still need alot of finish and machining.
  9. Cutting 8mm aluminium large sheet to small size for better fixturing and precision since im going to maintain flatness for all heatsink
  10. All design made in Fusion 360 ,originally trying to make it fancy but im trying to keep it simple and look premium,so im not going to use original heatsink and just totally made a new heatsink for it,to improve cooling performance and look its ram mod after all ;D
  11. dismantled Thermaltake DDR5 Ram for measurement,pretty easy to remove original heatsink with heatgun since its all stick with double tape.
  12. my vote go for clerence while my case look right his looking left
  13. Thanks for all support and comment that all of you give me,overall my thought about this case mod is quite tiring and painful to be done,that true i use alot of part with cnc machine to have the shape but overall there alot of hand work and sanding to be done for finishing to get this effect for using such a cheap cnc machine that have finishing problem. alot of part need to be hand fix such a problem with roundness and material flex,overall its a satisfying result for me that i design with Fusion 360 took almost 3 weeks and the end product look exactly with what i imagine in design. Final photo for PROJECT 0.6 sorry for video wobble we already use gimbal but forgot to calibrate, first time doing video sorry about that and enjoy
  14. already done assemble all the part will release the photo and video soon
  15. Right side of the case that i test fit before connect between original case panel and left middle panel. bottom side i need to tap all M3 thread to connect middle cover panel that thickness around 5mm only. so i have 1mm each side for clearance,pretty hard. on of 3D printed part that i use in this build because lack of material and its hard to get new material ASAP this season
  16. today start doing middle connector that need to connect middle left and right frame to support original case panel inside chamfer side to remove sharp part Since my cnc machine height is pretty low need to manual drill and make sure its pretty accurate if not it will bend the frame and probably wont fit,quite hard to get it got some scrap too. done look nice and clean
  17. start cutting some panel from original case to fit my shape.
  18. Today done assemble the side distro so we use 8mm blue acrylic for top part and 20mm POM black board for main panel that integrate with d5 pump chamber
  19. one of side panel done cutting now need to cut side blade that will have 3 part which is blue acrylic>alu 3mm>blue acrylic. Cutting Side blade is quite hard since im using cnc router and its quite fragile and easy to flyout because of thin material,before cutting all countour im using 50mm face mill to get shiny effect after face milling, so overall i rather use thick material 😏since its easy to cut and set after done cutting i do fit test to see it will fit or not since its just a cheap cnc machine sometime its hard to get a good round hole that need to fit the chrome rod.
  20. Testing and measure some part for design and cutting.and i need to make sure its right since most of my material i need to source it from china ,because im living at rural place and its take 1-2 month to get the material and i can go wrong with it. Cutting Process start for side distro and main panel ,its quite hard for me since it hitting all my machine size limit because the core p8 case is quite big Machining time that take over 1-2 hours overall to finish plus need to do 2 side.
  21. eventhough its nice brushed alu,still decide to colour it black ,so today just sanding with scotch brite to get some rough surface before spray to black before machining it.
  22. just started to dissamble the case.this case quite easy to dissamble since all of the join using phillips screw.
