    So today's job was getting the mobo and RAM ready. Again, massive thanks to AVEXIR and ASUS for these goodies!
    So First the RAM.
    First I took the RAM apart, obviously I wouldn't recommend this as it's not the easiest thing to do and it does void the warranty (I imagine)

    I also managed to peel all of the metal plates from the side of the RAM. This took a lot of patience, these plates are made out of thin metal, so too much pressure and they bend easily.

    Next up its a coating of primer for all of the removed parts.

    Then a lot of niiiiiice orange.

    and then, even more orange!!

    After its all dry, I stuck it back together.

     as you can see, the metal plates haven't stuck correctly on one or two of the sticks, so I will be redoing them, I want to give them a good 24 hours or more so I know the paint is 100% before I mess with them again.

    I think these have come out pretty well! (other than the plates not sticking properly, but that's an easy fix)

    So next up it was the motherboard. The great thing about these ASUS Sabertooth boards is you can spray the armor changing the look of them entirely. 
    Same as before, I took it apart

    I also removed the southbridge and VRM heatsinks,  these will get a light coating, nothing too crazy, I don't want to affect their performance too much.

    Again, i put a coating of primer onto all the parts

    you can see how light of a coat i used on the heatsinks, you can almost see through it!

    Next up it's the real paint! 

    again, just a light coat on the heatsinks.

    I then waited for it all to dry, put it all back together and added the ram. With a little bit of extra orange detailing I think it looks great!! 

    ASUS represent!

    you can see the orange of the VRM heatsink popping through from beneath the Armor in places

    The RAM looks great in the board, just still need to sort out the plates are peeling off. I think I need some better glue.

    I did want to paint the miniature fan that you get with these boards, but unfortunately, I broke it =(... Not doing anything crazy, I just pulled it out of the box, put it on the side ready to work on, and it must have fallen on the floor. I heard a crunch and that was that. Gutted.

    That pink sticker has gone now too, I started to remove it before these pics, then must have got distracted. ooops!

    The orange in the detailing is a slightly different colour, but from a distance you can not tell. 

    I tried not to use too much and just highilght certain parts

    A little test fit of the now orange and white davido_labido style GPU's

    and one final picture because why not?!

    what do you guys think about this little ASUS/AVEXIR mod? 
    I know white and orange isn't for everyone, but I think we are starting to see some progress!?

    Hi guys.
    Recently finished my Thermaltake RL240 build.
    Just waiting on a couple of 90 degree adaptors to fix the small CPU kink.
    Current temps are amazing, at stock, both GTX 980 ti cards barely reach 38 degrees on any game/benchmark.
    Can vouch for Thermaltake quality, that's for sure.

    Limitations for the radiator thickness at the top of the case are 48mm with all ODD cages in. With the top ODD cage taken out, it is 92 mm (you can take out the second and the third too, of course). The rest is only limited by your hardware.

    The time has come to create the opening for the motherboard's IO, but I needed the factory cutouts for a template.  I couldn't just put the entire case up next to the inner chamber, so I cut it out. 

    Now I'm free to mark the openings with the stock "Ttemplate"..  I included the GPU's IO brackets as well so I could transfer those holes for the displayport, HDMI, and DVI ports.

    Holes marked..

    Motherboard IO cut and the panel in for a test fit..

    With that in place I knew right where to add the standoffs, so now the motherboard is mounted.

    Moving on to the GPU cutouts..

    Graphics cards installed!

    Next up is drilling holes for the pump wires, along with other cables such as USB3 and front IO.

    Today I got started working on the side panel door,and paint the chassis body,after tear down and sanding I applied my base coats and a old world copper finish the airbrushed in some weathering. For the case door. I want to make it look like Port hole or steam hatch.

    The material Ill be using in this process is 00.80 ABS and polystyrene.




    In my next update Ill do some work on the reservoir bodies, I want to make them look like fuel cells, should be fun, Stay tuned In!!

    Tte Martin reacted to Killuminati in Thermaltake WP100 case release date?   
    Sounds good. I know you probably can't tell me this but I'll speculate anyways. I'm guessing these are going to be priced somewhere inbetween Case Labs overpriced stuff and your current cheaper\smaller thermaltake offerings. Maybe somewhere around $300-$400? I could be way off and I'm just thinking out loud now. Thanks for letting us know around what time these will hit the shelves. Now I can hold off on buying that 900D I was eyeing and comfortably wait for that sexy sexy WP100. I'm going to be doing a complete custom loop upgrade when WP100 arrives on my Youtube channel so you'll have some free advertisement

    As your "handler", may I just say that this turned out far better than I could ever hoped? It looks amazing when turned on (especially the front) and was a real eyecatcher. Lots of people at Insomnia 55 asked "Where can I buy this?"

    Well, I had a parcel arrive today so I can finally start my build log! YAY!

    I will edit this post later with sponsor logos and such, but i just wanted to get the ball rolling!
    So, without further to do!!
    This is my box, there are many like it but this one is mine. My box is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. Without me it is useless, without my box I am useless.

    Inside the box was lots of stuff... I mean... Crazy amounts!! so much it wouldn't all fit on my table and it will take me a few days to go through it all!!

    First of all, let's have a look at the CPU block. I found 2 old friends up the attic. I will call them Jay and Em (they might resemble 2 EU Tt colleagues, but I assure you they are toys
    So i chose the Thermaltake Pacific W2 CPU block.

    With help from Jay and Em I was able to get inside

    Inside the box there are all fittings for all the common socket types as well as some plastic inserts to allow us to change the colour of the glowing name

    Come on Tt dudes, you need to lift that block up for me so i can get a better picture -.-

    Cheers lads! As you can see, G1/4 fittings and some mounting gear pre-fitted for our convenience.

    Next up we have these.... 
    20 x 120mm Tt Riing fans with orange LEDs

    I have used the white versions of these before and they have been great. As you can see from the spec, they are excellent for radiators.

    Inside the box you get everything you need, screws, a cable to reduce the fan speed and noise and also a molex to fan adapter for if you have 20 fans and run out of fan headers

    sigh, Jay and Em decided to hide. They are not very clever though.

    Oh excellent. Now they have climbed on top!!! They are probably looking for a bar.

    I knew it!!! After a long day at work looking at some awesome Tt goodies, they wanted a nice cold beer!  
    As per usual, Em couldn't handle his beer. Jay is going strong though!!!

    Oooops, maybe not, I best go and put these two to bed for the night! I will be back tomorrow!

    Onwards with some more plexi work
    First off the small window for over the rear SSDs. This is there to protect the SSDs from people that like the ones too much that are fitted to the rear of this project. I tried to somehow keep some lines from the inside involved in this.
    I polished up all edges of the window.



    Next up another piece of acrylic. This time for the mounting of a single HyperX SSD. I tried to make the shape of the paintjob resemble the X on the SSDs. This will be mounted behind the motherboard tray with a doorwindow so it is always visible.
