    Just Getting Started
  1. ok so a nice leap and bound later and heres where we are at. 1. front and rear panels cut, shaped, and fitted ( all will be cleaned with files and grinders and sand paper when 100% ready to go of for powder coating) so here are a few shots at various stages of the assembily. so that's the front , rear sides and base done, I have made one edit which you will see in later pics which was to enlarge the side fan holes, the reasons for this will become clearer at a later date. so all fitted together... now due to a glitch on the forum or maybe my pc... copy paste isn't
  2. ok so as the boss man (kenny) pointed out to me earlier i have been extremely slack in updating the build logs... so here we are. after some considerations about the proposed design of the center piece and talking to my boss at work, i have come u with a newer design for the center module. i also changed the material to a 0.70mm galvanised as it has more rigidity than the alluminium all cut and folded, now all that remained was to measure the new distance between the top and center rail of the case and make a turn out for mounting the center module. once i had that i meas
  3. Put some real shoes on cal Looking good bro! Keep it up
  4. sorry its been so long between posts Ok so new update i have decided rather than trying to scratch build the 2 sides modules and center piece to cut down 2 more cases. so i went ahead and started with what i had here. i measured my cuts and then went nuts with my jigsaw (in hindsight i should have used a grinder but alas mine has died... once i had the 2 pieces cut so the spare top piece can be fitted to the side. i then tapped new threads in for the side panel to fit up. here we have the test fit with. i now need to build a couple of plates to fix the 2 halves
  5. just a small update from me, Alongside the partial assembilly of the front and rear frames for the center i also managed the bottom plate today. i still need to trim down the side frames which i havent shown as they are too long and wont be done till i have the 10mmx10mm angle needed to fit the top panels. once i have some more time i will be starting on the side panels but not this weekend unfortunatly till next time, Ian
  6. Build log introduction About the modder and build. Welcome, my name is Ian Duncanson i am a 26 year old modder from victoria Australia i have been building and working on computers since i was 15. This is my third fully custom pc and one i wish to showcase, so lets begin. The concept - Simply with the age of ikea and the ability to customise along side the rise of the desk builds i have decided to design and build a desk based upon one of my favorite cases the thermaltake core x9. Now having built a previous desk before i know to an extent whats needed (my original build was a
  7. ok so next update, again no images as i havent hadd too much time. so a good portion of my purchases have arrived. i still have 1 more major one to do which is the mesh to remake the front piece as a 1 piece. i've canned the gpu block as it is too large for what i want, so the gou will be air cooled being an msi one the aluminium cooler will be painted black with the copper heat sinks left alone. ive made the psu shroud and tray shroud out of foam board which will be wrapped in the wood grain vinyl i now have to sleeve the 24 pin atx the 4 pin atx and gpu power lines the psu i scored w
  8. Ok so more purchasing. Below are the components list so far both purchased and not... Mobo - egc A960M-MV CPU - AMD Athlon II 3ghz GPU - ATI radeon 4870 PSU - tba hoping for fully modular but depends what funds allow SSD/HDD - AIMING for 2x 120gb ssd's but failing that will get a 500gb hdd. Ram - tba - using gold coloured heatsinks Water cooling - reservoir - Vintage Wine Bottle Tubing - solid 1/4 copper pipe hard drawn Fittings brass 1/4 compresion fittings Pump - 12 volt sle water pump Water block cpu - tba (perhaps a thermaltake w2? ) Waterblock gpu - aquagrafix ati
  9. Ok so the mobo has been ordered (egc a970m to be precise) as the build is more and older style minimalist approach ive chosen an matx board that will be surrounded by a shroud /cable mangement cover.
  10. Ok, so this is my first build im doing a complete log for. i hope you all enjoy. this is a steam punk themed mod to the thermaltake v9 black edition case. Ok so to start with ive stripped the case, and sprayed the chassis in a copper/brass base paint. note i will be removing the drive bays for extra water cooling rad in the front. once i had the basic colour on the chassis i moved onto plastic parts that would not be covered in the wrap i had chosen. also an other parts that would be required off the case for basic ideas if needed. (Note alot off these parts are no
