  1. Hi! Apologies for the long delay. I've unfortunately not been able to work on this build for the past month as I've been absolutely swamped with other assignments, so I've had to put the project aside. I've just recently set aside the time to be able to continue working on the build so the updates will be more frequent from now. Finally I've completed the Reverse-ATX conversion and I can finally start measuring up the mounting for the remaining hardware such as the PSU and the watercooling. Here are a few pictures! I'm extremely satisfied in how it turned out, just waiting on the custom cut top panel to bolt together the case again.

  3. New update! I am now in possession of all the hardware needed to finish this project, what's next is creating a few new panels for the case and then final assembly. What's new in this weeks update is the brand new Seasonic Prime 750W PSU that will be replacing the previous Snow Silent 1050W. Some new watercooling hardware from both EKWB and HWLabs. A huge thanks to SEASONIC for once again stepping up and helping me out with this project. This project should be starting to come together very soon! Although I do have plans to create a fully custom laser-cut top panel to really give it the extra touch. I hope you are as excited as I am here are a few pictures.

  5. Just a quick pass through Lightroom, I'm doing a lot of photography on my spare time Always been a great interest.
  6. Update time! In todays update I've finally started with the main case modifications, mainly cutting up the case to convert it into a Reversed-ATX Configuration, this meaning I've had to cut apart the entire outside of the case to create and refit new panels. It still haven't had time to tidy up all the cuts yet, so this will just be a representation of what's to come. I will be manufacturing a completely new top panel for this case, I've made a prototype to see the fitment. But later on I will be creating a custom radiator grill to both improve the aesthetics of the case and make it possible to mount a 240mm radiator in the top part. I've had to turn the whole case 90 degrees meaning the original front will now be the bottom of the PC, which will become more evident once I fit new case feet. The back of the case has been cut out and I will be replacing that piece with the original IO panel from the case, but in a reversed fashion. On another note, I've also recieved the new fans that I will be using instead of the original Noctua NF-F12s, I will actually be using the all black Noctua IPPC versions. The quality in these fans is just amazing, right out of the box there's an instant quality feel. Here are the pictures! New update next week , Stay tuned. Here's the result of the complete tear-down of the case. This is how IO plate is intended to sit. Results of cutting up the case, the prototype top panel, will be covered with venting holes and other things later on. At last a few glamour-shots of the new fans! Big thanks to Noctua for sending these.

  8. Hello everyone, sorry for the delay! due to out of stock issues I haven't been able to get my hands on a CPU until now. but it has finally arrived! Once I recieve the new fans, radiator and a few other parts I can commence the modding. as I need the exact measurements for the hardware to start. That should be in the next update. Until then you may enjoy some pictures of the build in its current state. Thank you all for following
  9. Merry Christmas! I just thought I'd release a few new photos given the time, I haven't had much time to work as I've been busy enjoying this holiday. The new CPU block has arrived, I bought this one to match the Watercool Heatkiller GPU block that I already have, Unfortunately I can't test mount it yet as the CPU hasn't arrived, but that should be here in a week or two. Here are a few pictures, More hardware coming soon! Including a few more watercooling bits and bobs, and also some storage!

  12. Hi Guys! It's been a while, I've been busy replanning the project as I will be doing some minor changes, I will no longer be going with a black and beige theme for the build. Instead I will be swapping out the existing Noctua NF-F fans that I already own to the black Noctua IPPC fans, meaning there will be no beige accents in the build. This has caused me to change the color theme into simply black with small accents of brown, the brown parts will mostly likely only be the fan rubber mounts, the sleeving and possibly a few other bits. As far as the watercooling is planned, I will be changing the planned acrylic tubing to nickleplated coppertubing instead, to give the build that sleek and elegent look that I am aspiring to give it. Unfortunately I'm still awaiting new hardware, but that will come soon. I will also be replacing the existing Seasonic PSU to a smaller and less powerful Seasonic PSU, as I ran into some fitment issues straight away. Here are a few pictures on what the build looks like so far!
