Here is what I'm currently working with! Imagine the horns and eyes lighting up once the build is finished! I'm also going with a battled and worn out weathered theme as well.

Everything was cut manually with a jig saw and a lot of filing. The cut-out at the top is a small window that will look into the top compartment.

















Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Looks good man. Q tip and some matt black model paint on the exposed ALU edges

Looks original too, which is nice.

Hey guys,

Time to start focusing my attention back to this build log and get it all up to date! I've been pretty busy as always however the build is finished and I will unveil it over the next couple of days.

I just want to show you guys all the progress first and I still need to take final photos and film it.

I'll start with two massive 10TB Seagate IronWolf HDDs that are going in the build, a plethora of red Bitspower fittings and the simple weathering effects done to the case.





























Hope you guys like it. Same as the front panel that I shared before, I wanted the build to look like it's been through a Star Wars space battle. The paint effects were done by dry brushing some simple acrylic paint, a very easy effect to achieve. You can also see an acrylic motherboard skirt cover panel.

Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

The motherboard I'm using is the ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme with a full cover Bitspower Monoblock that I decided to remove the top cover from and have it exposed. The acrylic would probably do with some polishing however for this build, in terms of the other aesthetics, I think it should work well as is.











The two ASUS STRIX GTX 980Tis, still pretty good cards even today, with Bitspower full cover water blocks.













And the memory I'm using is the Corsair Vengeance red LED





They're pretty good how you can easily remove the tops to orientate the Corsair logo to better suit your build.







The tops could even be painted quite easily for further customisation.



And here's everything mounted inside, with tubes in so I can mark for the pass-through fittings on the front panel.







Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Okay, here we go, pass-through fittings are mounted and the front acrylic cover panel is complete.













You can also see the motherboard skirt panel is ready as well, with reservoir mounts on.







Fans are going underneath the case and a 60mm thick radiator on top of them in the bottom of the case. I just wanted more room and the fans fit nicely underneath. Plus, they will give a nice glow underneath the case.







Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex
