Republic Of Gamers -- ROG-BOX (Mini ITX)



Welcome to the build logs for ROG-BOX

What is ROG-BOX ?
ROG-BOX is a mini itx monster build packing serious punch! Designed just for ASUS/Republic Of Gamers, ROG-BOX is going to play on the RGB Lighting that's offered from the motherboard and GPU.

Design phase

The plan here was to make one mean looking rig, in a compact space, and watercooled.
With a 1070 or 1060 GPU (I didn't plan on a mega mini ITX, but asus had other ideas)
After speaking with ASUS UK, They offered up a ROG Poseidon 1080Ti Which sparked some pretty creative changes as you'll see further down


Spec list (Click parts for links to website)

Intel Core i7 7700k
ASUS ROG STRIX Z270i mini ITX
ASUS ROG Poseidon GTX 1080Ti
Team Group Night Hawk RGB White DDR4 RAM
Fractal Design Define nano S (Case)
PSU - TBD
Cablemod RGB Widebeam LED Kit + Extensions
Watercooling - All Alphacool



Partners
Special Thank you to my partners
ASUS ROG UK
Cablemod
TeamGroup Global <3


On to the actual work!

Started with the shroud (Easiest thing to do)
Cut to size, and bent using heat gun


I then sprayed the shroud, with a matt black powder paint.


i then decided that since the change of hardware, i should have some fun!

i cut up a square of white like so


using vinyl i marked the areas i wanted to keep white and put the logo on.

Checked it all fitted, and what it'd look like (I like it)




i then sprayed the plastic with the same black powder paint, waited until dry and peeled off the vinyl.


And tested how they all looked once in


I then went back to the front panel and thought ''This needs something''

So, i got to work






Once that was all done, i peeled off the vinyl again, and was left with this!



This is where i am currently at from 2 days work.
Will hopefully get more done this weekend.
Including sanding all the panel edges, to get them perfect

Let me know what you think
Thanks for looking.

-Craig

Update


I started work on the top vent cover/panel.
Got my hands on the sanding belt and also trimmed down and fitted the front panel properly.


Still need to repaint the edges of the front panel, and we should be good to wait for the parts to arrive.
Inner panels will be fitted properly once the system is inside.

EDIT:
Re-done front panel, and top panel. now flush and cleaned.
++ Added new white inserts (these will ignite with the Cablemod RGB Widebeams in the front

update


got to work on the top vent panel.
Was certainly fun, not 100% sure if i like it, but it'll do for now.


I painted it white first


Vinyl wrapped and marked the areas i wanted to stay white


Peeled off the excess vinyl


Sprayed it all black


And then fitted it


Let me know what you think
thanks for looking
