The open parts in the right wall will be closed with the original parts, which I saved in our basement and later it will the entire interior covered with acrylic plates.


Perhaps with a nice whetstone from Modworkx


Please don't be mad with me for that bad look atm


it's my first casemod.


We found some time to bend the tubes. I haven't any tools for it, only a siliconfulltube from Monsoon and my Heatgun


I know it's not perfect but for the first tries, I think the, are quite good  I did some bad angles for bending but found a way to do it and everything fit perfectly, even it's not looking like that


Now I need to wait for money to buy a new GPU, perhaps I will find some time and money around Christmas

My Actually Stand from Project Kallax is this one =)


it has changed some things but i'm needing to wait for my acrylic plates, which will be done custom made for me. to hide the radiators on top and having some special waterflowing ways in them =)


also i received my Sponsoring Packet from KLEVV with a quadkit of DDR4 Cras dimms. two dimms with red light and two dimms with white light combined with two 240GB SSD's from them.

don't worry about the pictures. they sended me 2 kits with red dimms and 2 kits with white dimms instead of one kit with 2 red and 2 white dimms. The rest of the Kits will going back to them.

I have done some more stuff at the last days. its not so much, but the time at the moment is completly getting used by our 2 weeks old daugther, who needs to stay at the hospital for a longer time, cause she was born 6 weeks to early.


but i hope you will like my newest progress.


i only need to wait for the last pieces of my parts and then i can finally build it to the final result.


stay tuned.
