    Default Tweaked

    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.

    Specs -

    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......

    awesome work and good to see an old case given new life. I wish I had the space to do some of this fab work. I just dont have it and I am seriously considering moving to a place where I can have my dedicated space for work like this.

    This mod looks like it's going it the right direction. Very cool!

    yeah it is started to wear me down. I cant work as efficiently as I know I can. A lot of the work I want to do I have to wait until it is warm and sunny outside or I have to wait. Didnt do any modding all winter because of it. The last mod was the AMD Test Drive build because I could stay outside all day working. I need my own space bad!

    Thanks guys. Ya a guy needs his space thats for sure.

    So i'm trying to catch this log up hence the back to back posts. enjoy.....



    Lets start off with the front grill cutting







    Next I would like to thank Primochill and ModSmart for sending me some goodies for this build.








    Lets check out the goodies!!












    They also send me the CTR res but the pic didn't come out too well


    So lets get down to business. The next pics will pretty much wrap it up. I was very pressed for time to knock this build out to take to lanfest. I did finish in time so sorry for lack of more pics.


    Here's few pics of some of the hardware getting blocks installed. R4G and 690's







    Here is the build getting some assembly after getting parts back from powder coating. The color is a 2 stage powder chrome base with transparent red over it.





    Moving on to res, pump and flow meter layout and install.







    Start button installed and it works!!!! Yay (had a switch go out recently.)





    top rad grill looks great





    For the tubing I did use PETG tubing, thank you Stuart! So here are my first bends...





    And leak test






    Door on and died liquid red. No window yet. lol






    So thats it for now. I will take some pics in the sun in a couple days. Until then..........

  7. The following user thanks Pcjunkie209 For this above post:
