Epic PC X Series 24.2 - Massive cuts done, huge update up! Lots of pics!

Epic PC X Series Scratch Build

I have always wanted to post on OC3d ever since its layout was bland and the old logo and website style existed and I finally decided to come join!

This log is about a computer I am making for myself!

I have already started this build so here are some defining posts from start to now to give you an idea of what my mod is all about.













Sponsors for the Mod.

Lamptron



Time to introduce my new sponsor!

Andy from Lamptron will be sponsoring this project and after the Chinese New Year Holiday, he will be sending a few goodies through. I have always used Lamptron switches in my projects (what scratch builder wouldnt?) and it is absolutely fantastic to have their support.

GAMMods



Greig from GAMMods will be supplying the acrylic for the waterblocks, all the watercooling essentials and some cable sleeving too. His contribution to the modding community as a whole has been exceptional and he is outstanding in providing modding supplies that you just cannot get anywhere else in Australia.

In truth, he has been supporting me for much longer than this build and our relationship stretches back to the old days where I was hand modding with a dremel, a heat gun and a table saw (my how times have changed).

It is great to have him on board for this journey, thank you Greig!































I will continue on with this worklog as per normal progress for now. Plenty more to come.

Backplate from HELL



Backplates arent meant to be complicated but somehow, I managed to make the most complicated backplate ever. I've narrowed it down to two possible reasons. Maybe im just becoming a more sophisticated kind of guy or maybe living with my fiancee has turned me into a woman.

Noone can be certain. However, one thing is for sure.....this is one complex backplate.





So we all saw the previous post showing the drawings for this cut. Instead of leaving it nice and simple I decided to make it all cluttered and a little more informative.



Im just using some beat up temp sensor for the fitting, it got a new bunch on the way in the correct colours. The middle one is the bios lcd. It tells you all sorts of wonderful and useful stuff like how its feeling and why its favourite colour is blue...



So, this clear plate goes over it just to make it semi obvious that the top is an air temp sensor and the bottom is the water. Thats as far as I will go with autocad vectors...designing a waterdroplet and some air arrows. They dont look particularly great but I did my best









This has not been mounted in the case yet, I will get around to doing that later though!

















My sponsors have helped me alot so I do whatever I can to give back!
