And just for you guys little peek for what's comin'




Only EPS is done for now


Oh, i forgot... 200 mm fans are also finished for now. Still need to cover these three holes with some kind of sticker or something like that

I have a general weakness for this case, and seeing someone do something awesome with it always tickles my feathers

Looking forward to the rest of this story.

Also one of mine favorite cases... And i'm glad you like it so far

Anyway my dear comrades, i was working on backplate for gpu. It's measured and cut, but i need little help of yours with mounting. This is actually first time i'm doing backplate so any help would be appreciated

Gpu i'm using is Gainward Phantom II GTX 660Ti





Measured and ready for cutting...



...jigsaw in action...


...cut looks pretty good for jigsaw...


...some work with rasp...


...and it's done.




So, the question is how to mount this piece of crap on pcb



Can i just unscrew these screws on pcb, drill some holes on backplate and just screw them again through backplate? Or there are some other things in need to look for? Hope you do understand what i mean

Seeing as there are stickers on the PCB, isn't it possible to just use clear double sided tape? Watch out with the vents on the back of that plastic bit though

Hmm, that actually might work . I gonna try that tomorrow and let you know it works. Didn't even think of that . Thanks man

What about that fan, do you think backplate would be a problem for airflow or something else...?

using the housing locations for attachment is fine, but the screw is a plastic self-tapping
and will have to be longer to accept material thickness, space/gap, and original
length. TIM pads or a dab of TIM compound for the memory modules would be helpful.

I would go careful covering the back of the gpu with metal.

You could short the power connections with the metal and also are there RAM chips on the back of that card? might change the heat dissipation of those chips by covering them.

I notice the EVGA GTX 660 Ti backplates have heat pads between the plate and the mem chips.

I think you can get replacement pads so you could try some of those
They probably help stop any possibility of shorts also as they create a gap

Hi guys, just a small update for now...

Here you can see how the backplate should look. It will be made of black plexiglass. I'm gonna put some white leds below notched inscription The White Pirate, so only that notches will light up white




I decided to completely remove 5.25 bay covers and instead insert panel with The White Pirate signature and Corsair logo. This will also be black with white leds. Think this should look quite nice




Anything I should change?
