Project JDM | ITX scratch build!

Project JDM

So its finally time to start on a new build log this time of a project i call "JDM". The core inspiration of the project was Japanese styled drift cars hens the radiator with outwards mounted ports to illustrate a oil cooler. And the other big small thing that is that i wanted it to be in mini-ITX format. So after a few weeks of thinking i decided to go with a tube frame to keep it true to the theme. Here are some of the renders i made after some designing in Fusion 360. Also big thanks to Alphacool, Bequiet and Teamgroupe for helping out with the hardware.

First update to start things off.

One of the first obstacles i encountered was the corner pieces. I had a few options but after some thinking i decided to make some custom 3D-printed parts for the job.
These are the 2 versions I made but I ended up going for the simpler design.





First print turned out great!







Removing the support material.

It is nice to see some 3D printing be used in a big case build project. Looking great so far.

COnsider me subbed!

Starting on the metalwork.

I will be using some 16/14mm metal pipes for the frame









Test fitting.
