Project Maximus Monsta

This build came around as I wanted to get a new case and had planned on going for the new fractal design arc midi 2 but then that got delayed until the end of April which scuppered my plans. But then Alphacool released probably the best looking rad ever and I needed to own it!



So I purchased the rad and then had the issue of finding a case that would fit it!! Enter the NZXT switch 810 matte Black edition. This project has been a bit of a slow burn as I have had all the new components since January but I have been waiting for my NZXT switch 810 to be modded. It has been with the modding company for over 2 months. But hey good things come to those who wait!

I am having a custom back plate created without all the numerous grommet holes that the original had as I think it looks to cluttered. I wanted it to look nice and clean with only a couple of holes for cable routing. It is being made out of aluminium and will be powder coated Black .

New vs Old



New motherboad tray fitted



Once powder coated it will look like this (pic is from another user's mod)




They are also making me a psu cover that will run the length of the back plate but leaving me enough space to get my Monsta 240 rad with one set of fans in the front. Again this is made of aluminium and will be powder coated black.

The final mod they are doing is making the window bigger as I hate how the default window is triangular..



Whilst I have been waiting for my case I have managed to sell most of my old watercooling stuff from my current build and obviously purchased new parts



Just what every build needs a massive fluffy cat!!




Also got by psu braided by martin at cables4pc, looks preety awsome if i dont say so myself

Kinda reminds me of Mass Effect. Not sure why, I've barely played the game.
