[In Win 901] Celestial



A new worklog!

And a long overdue one,this build has been in the wings for 6 months now while I clear the decks with IDORU and its 'adventures'....

This build will be something 'adult' in theme,no Gamer theme here! Im using the awesomely decadent Rolls Royce Celestial Special edition as its inspiration,a car so heavy on details that it beggars belief!










That paint! Those diamonds! That lighting! The build quality!

I will be using as many of the design cues as possible for something that should be outstanding when completed.

You can see more of this amazing car here: https://www.rolls-roycemotorcars.com...tsmanship.html

I still look at that car with utter jawdropping awe......I can only hope to do it justice.


The case I have chosen is an In Win 901 case,a compact case with a lot of potential,chosen mainly as i have not seen a really amazing build in one yet and certainly not with full watercooling.
This requires some pretty substantial mods.....in B NEG speak this means "I guttted the case"......I went back to my previous ethos of integration,mainly to open the space up and keep everything clean,small cases are hard to make tidy,efficient design can overcome this.
The hardware?
Im reusing a lot of kit from a previous build so Im well taken care of,a 4770k,z97 Impact and a 290x with 16gb of Crucial Ballistix as the main component list although....you never know......XD
Watercooling is a modified EK Predator kit with an EK impact block and a 290x GPU block.
PSU will be a Silverstone SFX 600w.

So....the Case?















All those specs wont mean a thing for me tho......XD

Subbed! It'll be great to follow an extensive mod on this case as there have been a few complete reworks of the interior but none that actually end up making it look clean..

You're brave going for the black though, I'm sure it sucks up more fingerprints than the silver one does.

The Predator is a big chunk for this dainty case, it's all epic kit. Can't wait to see the tiny inlaid diamonds, have you seen the documentary where they commissioned the poor chap to make the original celestial centerpiece?

I did,its what made me do this Joe.

The work.......damn......How many times did he have to re do it? 2-3?

Just to clarify,I wont be using actual diamonds,it will be a crystal lookylikey instead.

Wicked, a new B-Negs build. Oh dis gon be speshul !

As a side note RR are just up the road from me (about three miles away). I was thinking last year that I really should ask them for a look around their assembly line..

Good idea for a build though B, we all love a bit of decadence

Rather than bore you will unboxings......

This is the motherboard im using,a Z97 Impact with an EK Impact monoblock......Take a last look at the stock unit.....



All the mish mash of colour needs.....refining I think.

Lets start by covering all the caps with Anthracite grey vinyl....



Then maybe spray all the copper a dark grey matt?





And then do the I/O and all lthe little detail badges in the same Anthracite vinyl...



Much better,the red will not be noticeable once the kit is all bolted in place.

Much more subtle I think.
