Project: Fallen Angel


Image courtesy of Viking @ Deviant Art

So it's time for a new project. I wanted to do something a little darker than my previous build, Project Angel, so I decided to go for a red/black theme which ties in nicely with the Angelic alterego, hence the Fallen Angel title.

I'm still in the process of collecting parts for the build but I have the case which still requires a little work but to give you an idea, here are some sneek shots of it:

First of the packages that arrived this morning. Some modding material.


Satin 'deep' red


Carbon Fibre



I ordered the smooth glossy carbon fibre as 3M Di-noc is matt and embossed like the real thing (thanks Peter http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...cons/smile.gif). I'm hoping the glossy finish will reflect light better as where I want to put it it needs to do just that. The downside of course is that light reflection will show up every imperfection as well as dust accumulation which is going to cause me some headaches no doubt.

Not sure what to do with the red yet, I guess it depends how easy it is to mould to the aluminium surface and rolls around the edges.

If all else fails I have a powdercoater to fall back on but I'm trying to do something a little away from the norm aswell as 'doing it myself' rather than pay someone to do the mod work.

Some more goodies arrived:

First up the fans.

4x140mm and 3x120mm Bitfenix Spectres


Unfortunately the cables arn't pre-braided but that will soon be sorted http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...icons/wink.gif


Nice red glow from the red LEDs:



Next up are the NZXT leds:




I'm more than happy with the fans considering the price which are surprisingly very quiet, especially the 140mm ones. The only thing I may change is are the 120mm fans for the CPU HSF. While they look great in darkness I feel they may be a bit too understated during the day. Considering switching these out for some sickleflow fans (red blades) but I'll wait and see what they look like when mounted first.

I'm concerned about the overall length of the LED cable so that might need to be lengthened, again I'll try it out and see how it goes. I am however pleased that the LEDs are 3mm as opposed to 5mm which will prove usefull http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...icons/wink.gif.

Gonna start building this weekend time permitting.

Yay, good to have you back modding webbo.

Looking forward to another exciting build log.

I was firstly stunned when I thought "ooo here's another awesome Webbo build" and was greeted by a young womans bum on the 1st image http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...ons/tongue.gif

Gonna keep tabs on this one for sure, really like the armoursuit case and love carbon fibre (fake or otherwise) when it's used effectively.

Keep up the good work dude http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...ns/biggrin.gif

Cheers m8 http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...cons/smile.gif.

This build will be 100% aircooled http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...icons/cool.gif. The case is however big enough to fit decent watercooling in should air not be enough (is it ever??). I sold my old rig just before xmas as I fancied a change and now have plenty of time on my hands. With boredom setting in, the upgrade 'itch' took hold. http://forum.overclock3d.net/images/...ns/biggrin.gif
