Keep wiring in mind. Just because the render looks good doesn't meant that it will work well once you have the parts in there.

50% of wiring is already sorted out. All excess lenght will find home under PSU, there is zero airflow needed, rest will be tied to the mainboard supporting sheet.

But thx for reminder. I realized, that if i go with  MSI B450I GAMING PLUS AC - it has the M2 port on back of MB, so M2 ssd will be covered by PCI riser. Must find solution...

No problem! It just bugs me when I see renders like this and they LOOK all clean and tidy until you realize that the EPS connector is going to be hanging over a 140mm fan or that there isn't much room for a 24p connector. Good job though!

You got a point there with the 8pin, will see if the original cables from PSU are flexible enough, if not, I'll buy low profile 8 pin PSU cable. Thx.

No problem! You could also buy a fan grill... it won't look as good but if you go noctua will it matter? lol. Good luck!

I expected some troubles with welding 1mm sheet, but there was almost none. Even dusted off my old gtx 560, if I guessed the dimensions right:-)

Looks amazing! Any more updates in the last week? 

Hi, not much to update atm. Real life got in the way. Frame is ready for priming, it will probably happen next week. Aluminum parts got lost in our warehouse, so I will be probably doing detective work. 

 

Next issue is, that b550 itx boards can I expect on market first in few months and I'm getting too itchy.

Will see the price of x570(it's only few days untill release:-)) and reconsider.

Plan B is gigabite B450 I Aorus pro board.

 

And at least tiny update on thinghs I already bought:

Another tiny update...

 

After Ryzen 3k release, especially after seeing the prices of x570 boards, i maked some changes to my future config.

Decided to go with ryzen 3600 cpu and  B450 I Aorus pro board + will reuse rx 570 from my old comp. Will upgrade mobo and gpu in so 1 year, when the prices are more reasonable and bugs are resolved. Currently x570 boards cant offer much for me except luxury of backplate and rainforced slots. I cant use pcie 4.0 full potential atm, wont buy higher clocked DDR4 modules because of price and that active chipset cooling is blech:).

 

Ugly Duckling meanwhile got the frame primed and i putted most of the little things in there. Next step is to prime the aluminium covers and it will be finally ready.

This looks excellent so far. I love that you did a bit of a pattern on the front of the case for the PSU fan. Plus those patterns on the back really add to the look. How did you cut those out again?

Thx. All parts are lasercutted at our company and colegaues helped me with priming. Im building it, when i have bit of free time. 

Wish i had proper tools at home, but thats sound of future.

So another tiny update.

 

Case is ready and i ordered rest of the parts:).

Final assembly will propably happen next week, but not for sure. Believe, or not, Ryzen 3k is selling like hot cakes and almost all e-shops at my country have it out of stock. Hopefully i wont wait too long.

Nice

I like the industrial look

 

It would be Even Nicer with internal led lights

Hehe, if led lights were contributing to computing speed, I would build a christmas tree. I don't care about leds at all. Won't be watching the case, but the monitor:-). Anyways, thx man.

True Enough

 

But you are still building a Custom case even though you wont be watching the case 🙂

It's because of dimensions, it will perfectly fit into particular shelf. The shelf is located perfectly out of reach my son's hands:-).  And I'm also aiming for good cooling and quietness...

Another tiny update:).

Surprisingly had to wait for mobo, because of bios update, but its in my sweaty hands now finally.

 

Cable management was real challenge.

IMG_20190727_204757.thumb.jpg.7a473725635f2154278e8c095b700533.jpg

 

But its finally done redneck style

IMG_20190727_214849.thumb.jpg.3f076c11bbee12258220f547232fdae2.jpg

 

And the GPU side...

IMG_20190727_220446.thumb.jpg.daf9cd737e7e8d517b4c3c1425e2797c.jpg

 

was happy that all the guessed dimesions were accurate

IMG_20190727_220451.thumb.jpg.a2d41df5e234d18e3e9b6377fba4f3dd.jpg

 

Its Alive:D

 

IMG_20190727_220734.thumb.jpg.af878e55b7f3def1da0d6a59e46d1d30.jpg

And istalling windows....

IMG_20190727_221631.thumb.jpg.3fcb04528a60abec58c95725a92babac.jpg

 

Now i write on this machine. Surprised, that everythig worked well, asking myself where is the catch:).

Machine is dead silent on iddle and watching youtube. Even can hear GPU coil whine, unnoticed before.

When i settle software side, will run some tests (gaming sound performance, hanbrake temperatures, ect..., will try even run it without cpu fan)

It can take a while, so be patient with me pls.

I'm curious, is the hole in the front and the metal circle behind it centered? Or does it look like that because of the perspective of the camera?
