570TRIX (modded Corsair 570X) by SimpleModz

Hi guys,

Welcome back to another one of my build logs! This time I am working on the newly released Corsair Crystal 570X tempered glass case!

I would like to thank everyone at Corsair for giving me the opportunity to work on this case as I know this was sent to a group of elite modders world wide! I'm simply honored to be considered for this and see myself up there with the talented people that I look up to and inspire my work!

The 570X is a case with tempered glass on pretty much all sides and it's truly a stunning case. My build will be all about elegance and luxury as well as drawing a bit of inspiration from the crystal series name.

SPECS:

Case – Corsair Crystal 570X
Motherboard – TBA
CPU – TBA
Memory – 4 x 4GB Corsair Dominator Platinum 3000Mhz DDR4 RAM
GPU – TBA
SSD – 240GB Corsair Force LE SSD
PSU – TBA

Custom Cables - CableMod

Cooling
Corsair H100i V2
Corsair HD120 RGB Fans

To start off the build log I did a quick unboxing presentation of the case. I hope you guys enjoy it and stay tuned for more!



Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

Time to start making some progress on this build so I started stripping down the case.

Next step will be to fully take it apart by drilling out all the rivets however I need to work on some things before.

More to come









A great thing about the 570X is that you can take both the front and top fan/rad mount out by just undoing two thumb screws.





This then leaves the top and front fully open.











Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

I've been working on my design for this build and ended up cutting a lot of acrylic for it.

Here's the near entire pile hahaha. I'm still working on my idea and refining it but I think it should turn out pretty nice.



Different panel sections that I am working on



This will be on the back to hide some cables and the rest will be displayed nicely behind the motherboard tray through the tempered glass panel.



I have them numbered and named hahaha as there are so many of them.





Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex
