Hello everybody! Its been awhile since I have used forums to post progress of a build. Fcaebook is like a bad drug that I am trying to get away from. I need to hire a lacky to do my social media stuff LOL. Anyways I am in the process of redoing an OLD CM ATCS case. Some ask why? I say why not? It's so cool, at least to me, to see an old chassis made look new with modern tech incorporated into it. So I was all excited when a friend offered me this chassis.
So the idea for me is to create a lan friendly chassis instead of some ginormous case. I will be rearranging the whole inside and inverting the mobo. I have already started a lot of my fab work. I will try to keep my log here some what current. So on with some specs and pics.
Asus Rampage 4 Gene
Nvidia GTX690 x 2
Intel i7 4960X
Intel 730 series 480gb ssd x 3 in raid 0
Adata XPG 1866mhz 32gb ram
Cooler Master ATCS chassis
Cooler Master JetFlow 120mm red LED fans x 6
Cooler Master V1000 PSU
Koolance blocks, 360 rads, pump and misc fittings
Primochill Revolver fittings
Primochill CTR res
Primochill Vortex flow meter
Primochill 360mm rad grills
ModSmart pre-sleeved wire cut to length
The chassis was in fairly good shape when i got it. A little dirty and covered with logos. So here is how the case looked when I got it.
So here is a new product I tried to help with my fab process. Keep in mine I have never tried much braising. Here's some pics of the new frame for the front
Here is a pic of the sub-frame for my mobo tray .
And some pics of how the case will look....
And some of the fabrications i've done. And of course the awesome feet.
Here's a look at the corners after i cleaned up some of my braising.
Then of course the part I usually screw up. The I/O panel cutout.... lol
This time I measured like 10 times. Looks good. So I then marked out psu cutout...
Next up marked out the window and the front plate. Today I will be cutting all these fun things....
Last but not least I laid out some of the hardware to see if all is well. Then I marked some wire management holes. Its gonna be tight fit with dual 360 rads but hey what the hell i'll make it work.
Thanks for checking out my log. More to come very soon. Until then......
