InWin H-Frame Mod (ROG Edition)

Hey guys I'm back again with a second build courtesy of my friend Tom!
Cpt.Morgan's build!

CPU - i7-3820
MOBO - ASUS Rampage IV Extreme
CPU Cooler - Prolimatch Genesis with two Bitfenix Spectre Pro REDs
GPU - GTX 690
SSD and HDD - Raidr 256GB & 3tb Seagate
RAM - 16 GB Dominator
Case - InWin H-frame
OS - Windows 7 Ultimate
Screens - 3 * LG IPS234
Mouse - R.A.T.5
Keyboard - Microsoft Sidewinder
PSU - AX860
Sleeved Cables Red

The specs are above but I think for the moment no-one cares about that and wants to see the stunning images of what I think might be the first H-frame mod ever!

So the story is that my friend is passing his A levels and wants to spend a butt-tonne of money on ridiculous parts straight after his last exam with the reasoning of "because screw you." The images go from very bad quality to fantastic quality as his sister is a photographer and hold out to the very end because I think it's stunning.

He will be gaming at 5760 x 1080 so the first thing he did was purchase a case that both resembles him and his obscene stupidity. The stunning, pointless H-frame. Oh and did i mention he owns two bunnies that were bred to shed extra fur onto his bedroom floor?
Fur + H-frame (open air case) = genius...





Anyways that still did not motivate him enough so he went out and bought three monitors!



Look how happy he is. And the H-frame is in its original coating in the back.

The next thing I know he disappears for a weekend to spray paint it with a dark red spray paint. He didn't use an undercoat and sadly the spray paint did not turn out the colour he wanted. But he did make the most of it as you can see below.




Can you name the games?


Most of us thought the paint job wasn't up to scratch and a little rushed. And once I showed him ROG parts he immediately wanted to not only fix the colour but also make all the internals visible! He went to our DT department at school: asked one of my best friends Adam to recreate the side panel on Auto-cad and then went to create it by laser-ing a sheet of plexi. And my god it turned out well! What do you guys think? Would you buy it if it came like this?



Thank you all for reading we will upload photos once he receives his ROG parts, GTX 690 and Raidr!

A word from Tom.
This case appealed to me because of how outrageous it seemed; my more subject-educated friends reminded me (ANNOYINGLY OFTEN) of how loud, and dusty and stupidly loud it would be. But I got it anyway, and instantly fell in love with it. Yes it looks like a cheese grater and cut me often, but I love it. We had no plans to paint it, saying that I never plan anything. One weekend my friend and I got drunk and decided that "NOW, as in right now, the case need to be customized" so we disassembled it, and began running around central London looking for Black and red spray paint; we ran about 5 miles that day trying to get to shops before they closed. In the end we found some, painted the case and reassembled it. The Mk 1 was born . However it wasn't how we envisioned it, so we went back to the drawing board; we laser cut a side panel with our bear hands and found better spray paint, one even more drunken night later, my case was done. For all the work, it seems perfect. Actually scratch that, It's not. I'm very bad at spray painting.

Thank you for reading and because the images were too big I had to downscale them. Any comments would be appreciated

UPDATE 14/5/2013
Hi guys,

Thank you so much for the comments and opinions, nice to see this case is getting some attention. Wasn't expecting this level of interest :P

This case is nowhere close to being done, thank you to everyone who has given us advice on how to do it properly. For anyone interested these aren't the latest pictures and we will put new ones up as soon as possible. We'll get to work on it as soon as possible and update this page.

I like the paint, it looks a bit more tough than your standard 'frame. If anything, I'd say add battle scars, maybe some rust effect paint as well to make it look like something out of mad max :P.

Yeah, it looks a bit like that anyway, was very difficult to fit back together but wasn't anything a hammer couldn't fix. Also the pieces are by no means perfectly painted, so it looks like something that has been over used. Thanks for the comment. Will think about adding a few more scars.

I like that idea we could glue sand and such and make deep scratches and do another coat on top! But it would be kinda dangerous if we screw up.

No way can we add another coat to the paint, it won't fit back together if we do..

That's pretty neat. And yes, more hammer!

On second thought, maybe not

Yeah I work from home at the moment, so there's lots of time for forum browsing and
participating during workdays. And the weekends, well they're not much different.
