  1. The Build is finally finished, i managed to make the custom liquid cooling loop before i leave for christmas holidays. I'll make and upload more pics with clean background on the 28th of December.

     

    This is a full handmade build, no CNC machines or laser used. As you can see, you don't need expensive tools for be creative!

     

    Thanks

  2. Update

     

    Stickers has arrived, already used some, finished the internal acrylic sheets, painted in metallic black.

     

    I had to do the fron panel again, this time i used plexyglass 2mm instead of 3mm, the bend is better now. Will be wrapped in white, with some stickers on it ;)

     

    Next and final steps will be: Placing an ON/OFF button, finishing the non windowed side panel, making the liquid cooling loop.

    Thanks for following the project!

  3. UPDATE

     

    Have been busy lately, also waiting for some items to complete the mod, in the meantime i've painted the acrylics for the internals and the peripherals. My friend Dave Alcock printed for me some stickers i'll use for this build, they should be here early next week!

     

    Also made some shoots of the fittings that Thermaltake has sent to me.

     

    The build is almost finished, just missing some details.

  4. Update

     

    I made the sleeved cables for the build with my friend Shakmods, also made a VGA Backplate with acrylics sheet 2mm, and added some more acrylics for the internals. The last piece of hardware for the build also arrived, the INTEL SSD 535 SERIES

     

    Sleeved Cables:

  5. Update time!

     

    I made the psu cover with 3mm acrylic sheet, i've cut the acrylic by hand, sanded the edges and bended with an heatgun.

    Since i made a mistake ordering the acrylics sheet, this one came in "frosted white", so i had to use a matte white vinyl wrap. I finally used some black strips for contrast the white. The psu cover is not finished yet, i'll add some more details later on.

    Thanks for following my project, see you at the next update!

  6. Time for update!

     

    I made some tests for the psu cover and other covers i'll made with plexyglass in the internal of the case

    And then the Ram unboxing and painting!

    As you can see the Black & White theme is coming out for this mod, i've started working on the plexyglass for the internal covers, i want to remind you that the 90% of the work is made by hand, the only electrical instruments i'm using are the Heat Gun for bend the plexyglass and the Drill for make holes. This is to show that you don't need expensive instrument for be creative! Also since i recently moved in UK from Italy, i don't have a work room anymore, everything you see in the pics has been made in my bedroom, the painting job has been made in the living room.

     

    For cut the plexyglass i'll be using an hack saw and a coping saw (7€ and 10€ in every DIY shops).

     

    I'll add some black decals to the case for contrast the white of the new paint.

     

    Stay Tuned!

  7. Time for update!!!

     

    Case disassembled and paint job started. I've used Matte White paint with White Primer after sanded the surface with sandpaper 80. I usually do 2 coats of primer, waiting 20 min between, 1h drying and then 3 coats of white paint, 1 every 20 min and dry for 24h.

    Hello this is my enter for MSI PRO MOD Season 3!
     
    The Project name is: KRAIT GAMING, since i'll be using the new amazing MSI Z170A KRAIT GAMING motherboard!

    Since the theme of this competition is Black & White those are the colours i'll be using, all the hardware that comes in a different colour scheme will be painted to match the theme of the build.
    My goal this time is to do everything by hand without using any CNC or other machines, just to show that you don't need expensive tools to be creative! All the add-ons will be made with acrylic sheets.
    I'll upload the worklog weekly with 2/3 posts each week, maybe it could be boring at the beginning to watch all those unboxing pics, but stay tuned because there is a lot of work to do ;-)
