The Psychedelic Machine!

This Build came about cause of my old Asus Crosshair IV Formula board dying on me *RIP*

So the Idea for this build started out as Black and Green, But thought how many people have done just 2 colors. I wanted something a little different so I decided to go with black, red, green as the main colors along with an NZXT Hue RGB Lighting for more colors as it has a mode that cycles through multiple colors.

Build Log pictures!! I didn't want to post all of them cause there is a lot! So if you want to see the others check out the album! Thanks for looking :)

These are the XSPC Displays I got. I went ahead and wired the power together just to cut down on the clutter :)

These LED's I got from Ebay were originally for a car.. But i went ahead and wired a molex plug to them and was good to go!

This is the Front panel to the Switch, went ahead and cut out the solid section and installed this oh so nice looking mesh :)

This is the first mock up I did with the Rads and Board installed, Looking pretty good I think.

Finally!! Almost done - Here is the mock up for the PSU Cover / Bay cover I made and yes it is wood... Its cheap, easy to work with, and still looks good!

Wooo! Final mock up! Got the PSU and Bay cover painted :) Got the res placed, and pump. Also cut out a section of the PSU cover for the PSU Controller and a switch for the LED's.

Smexy lighting awesome build. Why'd you choose car LED's instead of the many lighting options for computers?

looks nice only problem i could for see happening is that its hot in there and the water cooler could add a small amount of humidaty and over time it could make the paint peel or bubble and even worse the wood could warp just something i thought about

Thanks :)

Awesome job! The green and purple looks awesome together.

Smexy lighting awesome build. Why'd you choose car LED's instead of the many lighting options for computers?

The reason for this was one, i got a set of 4 for less than $20 And cause they had a lot of different random modes with out having to have a control module.

Nice build but i think it would look good if you stained the wood insted of painting it!!

My plan was to actually cover it in Di Noc but ran out of time for a Lan event i was attending :)

I never actually thought about that... I dont think it will be a problem though I'm using highly compressed wood that is usually used to create car subwoofer boxes :)

Yes I had a hard time choosing a name for this build! That word kinda just popped in my head, looked it up on google and thought it was perfect!

I love that you just let the liquid pour into the reservoir.

Thanks :) It actually doesn't cause any extra noise either since the fans run at 100% most of the time anyways lol
