Hi everyone. I'm starting my second build in Mid August and this is the work log of it from beginning to the end. This is another scratch build, but this one I will use metal for my work

 

Click HERE if you want to see my first build

 

This will be one of the smallest Full ATX case that can have 4-way SLI/Crossfire in the world. I will add some innovative functions as well, which are a surprise :lol: :naughty:

 

So far Gigabyte has sponsored me with a beautiful mobo which I will be revealing to you later. 

GB will use this case for their exhibitions if they need it. So I hope to see it in a booth in exhibitions.

 

Here are some rendering of the case design. It has colour changing lights and the "Y" that's in all of my mods. stay tuned for the work progress

I beg you not to ask one thing... Instead I'll answer the question. "Yes! Anything is possible if you want to build it!" 

So please let me know what you think :thumb::thumb::thumb::thumb:

A Big thank goes to GIGABYTE for sponsoring my build

Update 27/08

Hello guys and girls of our modding community, today we have a small update. we started working on the prototype build in cardboard. 

If you ask me why we do this, it's because we need to make sure all the measurements are correct and everything fits in perfectly before we go into real production using Aluminium. 

 

I'm still in a doubt whether to use Aluminium or Steel, coz Alu is light but Steel is stronger. 

 

Anyway the following pictures are of the side panels. I did it as two parts rather than bending the one whole piece because it's easy to take measurements. So after I finish cutting all the pieces then i will put them together and put up some pics then

Update 28/08

 

Hi guys n gals, update on day 2 of the build,

I didn't have much time going home after my work. but I did some work on the build. I had some problems with the measurements of stuff, so I used the  previous box i made for mobo tray and today i will make a new frame.

I was able to make the fan and rad holder, so as in the pics this system can hold a 240 rad. on top If you go with a custom loop then there is enough space for even  push pull system. so all together 4x 120 fans there. and on front you can have another 2x 120 fans. so all together this system have space for 6x120 fans and 1x 240 rad

 

Also it has space for 2 SSDs on front and can have a 30CM tall res with 5cm diameter.

It can also accommodate about 6HDDs

 

Only negative is that it doesn't have a 5.25 bay. Since I dun use it I decided not to include it.

 

Here I cut out two circles to give enough airflow through rad to the fans

I got a sheet of MS Steel yesterday. so probably tonight I will start drawing and will try and cut tomorrow. problem is that m on an internship, so everyday leave at 7am and come back at around 6.30 pm :\

Oh yeah and i cut my palm trying to hold the metal sheet :\

I'm planing to mass produce this case. in different materials as well few dif versions. MS steel, Aluminium and Anodized aluminium(premium) and few designs like in the following picture

Alum and Steel one will be powder coated. and I can make stainless steel as well but it will be HEAVY!

Hi guys. wondering why i was silent? ah yeah it's because I was busy tryna make a custom spu block. so this is the result of the 1st test. i'm gonna test this and if it has a significant improvement over the air cooling, then i will make a nice clean and neat one.

I still need to cut the metal sheet. been busy with this. :\

Custom block top Acrylic cover almost complete. it's time to find some fittings to use.

 

In my country ask a shop for watercooling fittings. they say "What?" so i guess i have to use numatic fittings :\

I cant wait to see the finished product!!!

 

I've never seen a custom made cpu block  Great work so far   :D!

 

Instafollow after seeing the first pic  :)

 

 

Surprises you say?! I'm in!

 

Thanks a lot everyone. :D  :D

 

I will test the custom block for leaks tonight, then after 48hour test i will fit it to the system and test for another 48 hours, then i will check the temp change in the system and we will see how effective it is.
On the other side, have some obstacles in the case build, first of all the 0.6 thick Mild Steel i used seems to be bit too thick for the build, and the side panels have an issue fitting well to the side, so i'm gonna do some modifications and tests to see what i can do to fix it, then after that i will buy a new aluminium sheet and build the whole case in that, for everything i got only till Oct 10, then have to send off to powder coating and m y flight is on 26th :\ so it's gonne be a hectic half a month from now on :\
But i will finish the build and i will update you guys

Hi everyone, sad news. the waterblock did not leak but the temperature difference was only about 2 degree Celsius from the aircooler I used, so I decided not to use that for the build. Instead I will be using the CM Seidon 240M with COOLERMASTER sponsored me for the first build
