    Will that Polystyrene SSD mount cause it to retain too much heat?

    Thanks for the update! Are those bottom fans going to remain exhausting air out of the bottom of the case?

    SSD's run pretty cool, usually only a few degrees above ambient, so it's really no issue.

    You're welcome. Yes those two fans will be exhausting air through the radiator and out the case.

    CHAPTER IV: The Ecstasy

    "I have such sights to show you!” - Hellraiser (1987)



    I started on a motherboard shroud and checked the cable locations for all the components.





    The new floor made from more polystyrene.




    More of the floor from the other side.




    I chopped up a P67 Sabertooth shroud and added it to the pieces I already made from polystyrene.




    The holes are all approximate until I can properly fit it to the motherboard.




    Finished the cut out in the front of the case that I created earlier.



    Not to shabby for being done by hand with a Dremel. It only took a little bit of sanding.




    I got a little ahead of myself and decided to paint the new floor, starting with a good sanding and primer.




    After laying a coat of stainless steel paint, I used a piece of left over mesh and black paint to create a hex pattern.




    I rather likes the look, so I kept it.




    I kept moving the mesh and spraying until the entire part was covered.




    I then misted a little of the granite paint to wash out the pattern somewhat and sprayed it in a satin clear coat.




    While I was at it, I also painted the SSD mount in the same granite that I used on the floor and painted the motherboard tray rails in a dark hammertone. Then mounted it back into the case to see how it looked.







    Being on a roll, I painted the pump and motherboard tray. The motherboard tray was painted in black and granite. The pump top was masked with only the very front being painted black.

    CHAPTER V: Grease Paint

    "Man, there's a lot of people who are running now. You think it's right to run?" - Dawn of the Dead (1978)






    Time to paint the fans. I started with a darker hammertone for the frame.







    I then painted the blades and hubs in a nickel color.






    I only painted the parts of the fans that are visible once mounted. This allowed some of the fan's led light to continue to shine through.




    I had previously drilled out all the chassis rivets and broke the chassis down. I cleaned up all the cuts and then gave the inside a nice coat of the darker hammertone paint.




    Next up was creating the floor for the "reservoir room". Again I used polystyrene and made allowances for the window that will be installed later.




    The "reservoir room" floor is slightly elevated above the rest of the basement floor, allowing some overlap. It also helps in making this section of the case feel unique from the rest on the interior.






    The reservoir finally gets mounted for the last time.




    I decided after I started the assembly of the case, that I didn't like the paint scheme, so I changed it. I reversed the colors for the floor, to give it a darker feel.




    I tapped several of the original rivets holes for M4 screws. This will allow the case to be disassembled much easier, should a competent need servicing.




    I also repainted a few other pieces. The SSD mount and the reservoir mount received a new coat of stainless steel colored paint.




    I also installed cable looms during the repaint. The SSD mount features two 20 pin motherboard contectors that have been cut down and drilled out to except sleeved cables. The reservoir mount features Lutro0 Customs / E22 four 24 pin cable combs.




    The pump has also now been mounted for the last time. Here you can also see the elevation difference between the main floor and the "reservoir room" floor.




    The Alphacool radiator was re-tapped for M4 screws.







    All snug as a bug in a rug.
