Annndd another project :D!
 
Bitfenix asked us to build 2 rigs for GamesCom 2015 in Cologne Germany.
Ofcourse we're super excited!
This is the first buildlog the other one ... is a secret ;) (for now)
 
We've chosen to use the Funky Blue Aegis with a display on the frontside.
The deadline is the 5th of august so we don't have much time left for two complete systems ;) !
So lets start !!
 
First a video we've made to show you what we are planning on doing!
 
 
The first packages to arrive, Thank you very much Richard!! :D

The first thing we are doing is flipping the case 90 degrees, and so the 'feet' have got to come to the 'front'.

To fit an ATX motherboard in this Micro-ATX case we had to remove some material. To get the case steady again we added an aluminium profile and secured it with rivets.

Like it has always been there, after spray painting it black.

The eye-catcher of this build is the Bitfenix Fury Powersupply which has a very nice topcover! Looks very neat!

This is just a quick preview of the layout for the case.

Next update will be a lot of 'case-management' ;)

Looks good followed.


An AMD cpu has no place in a solely gaming build, end of.

I3 4150, Intel HD graphics, corsair CX750M, 4gb ram, Asus H81M-E, corsair 230T, Intel stock cooler WD Green 2TB Gigabyte 550TI

Why you shouldn't trust Gpu or Cpu boss Click on this I dare you!

Because today I'm really in the 'Update'-mood.. Yes, another Update ;) !
 
In the last post I didn't really mention the motherboard we are going to use.
So this is the one, it was in the price package for Polar (lucky me :D). 
 
P7076384_zpsekysipkr.jpg
 
P7076387_zpsqtpdil4f.jpg
 
Cut out wooden panels with a lasercutter to fit in- & outside the case.
 
P7076392_zpsnb8o1fkd.jpg
 
P7076394_zps6krefkmb.jpg
 
The great thing about the Spectre PRO fans is the two-part frame. You can take them apart easily.
The fans will then be mounted inside the panels. It almost look like speakers, don't you think?
 
IMG_1592_zpslx7x0pfd.jpg
 
IMG_1593_zpshtzvglyu.jpg
 
Using a file to give an edge to the wooden panel so it will fit together nicely.
 
IMG_1595_zpsiq2xqqju.jpg
 
P7196552_zpsgmh0fpxj.jpg
 
Cut out a big hole on the backside of the case. This will be covered up with the 'Aegis' panel that was cut with the laser. Air can flow through the Bitfenix logo out of the case.

Made a small attachment thingy (bracket?) :confused: haha
 
IMG_1603_zps5b4kena0.jpg
 
P7196550_zpsfwc6nulo.jpg
 
This is what it looks like now with a lot of the panels in place.
 
P7196541_zpst0d7qdfv.jpg
 
And here is just one quick shot with the power supply! :)

Netjes! Is it going to be a completely open-air case like Polar, or will there be a windowed side panel of some sort?

Dankjewel ;) ! We don't want to give in on the usability of the case so we will be using the original panels, but modify them of course :).

 

 

That last picture is so stealt ! :D WOW!

 

 

Thanks :) ! It gets better ;) !

Thanks guys :) !
So, another quick update, after the Gamescom stress officially has started to kick in ;)
 
P7076397_zpsmnybzyj7.jpg
 
IMG_1593_zpshtzvglyu.jpg
 
I took the Bitfenix Spectre PRO Fans out of there frame and used a file to round all the edges, so the fans will fit nicely into the wooden frame.
 
P7196537_zpsyxq8rqij.jpg
 
P7196535_zpsctibimww.jpg
 
Below you can see the wooden frames for the fans they will be places on both sides next to the MB.
 
P7196533_zpsxc1mshrc.jpg
 
P7296696_zpsxr3wyzcd.jpg
 
Ofcourse Pixel has to check if it is done correctly.. (maybe there are any sunflower seeds there, you never know...)
 
P7296699_zpsuis1bicz.jpg
 
This is a rough idea of what it will look like (you just need some imagination ;))
 
P7206554_zpsozssyehw.jpg
 
Small aluminium brackets to hold the wooden frames with the fans in place.
 
foto%206_zpsbdf7dqk9.jpg
 
foto%204_zpsl1m2drbi.jpg
 
foto%205_zpsql82akyh.jpg
 
These are all of the frames that need to be painted black on the backside and wrapped in black self adhesive foil on the front.
 
P7296702_zpsb2btuzhd.jpg
 
P7296704_zps3pt5d1sc.jpg
 
That was it for today, next update is the self-adhesive-foil-adventure (sounds so exciting.... <_< )

After a short break I'm back :) !
Gamecsom was awesome! It was a crazy busy week (and the week before of course, finishing everything ;) ), but completely worth it!! 
I was so happy I survived the teenage zombies and..I've made a short 'after' movie!
 
 
And a few pictures of the Aegis and the Atlas, the other build I'm working on! (more about that one in his own new buildlog..comingsoon)
 
P8067001_zpsprlrm4wf.jpg
 
IMG_0607_zpseklsr8ga.jpg
 
P8067009_zpsusbwi41y.jpg
 
Now, On with the buildlog because I've made a lot of pictures!
 
Ok where were we again..
Applying the self adhesive foil (Pixel was completely obsessed with the plastic tool to straighten out the foil ;)
 
P7296708_zps2fhctrmx.jpg
 
You can't really see it here on this picture, but on the backside of the plexiglas you can see the foil opening up. Doesn't look very clean so I've added some black cardboard to the back of the letters which made it look really good!

P8026848_zpsg4b2rulg.jpg
 
P8026850_zpsvppmi7kn.jpg
 
Also the SSD's get their own very special place ;)

The SSD's and some lasercut fluor edge plexiglas to go with them (still need some work so don't worry)

Dat was a great nidalee cosplay :o

 

@TopicClocker, Is the PSU painted blue or is it just the lightning? Great build/mod btw  very unique :D

 

 

Haha Yes loads of cosplay there! I really enjoyed that, a lot of really cool costumes! :D

No the PSU is still Black, I didn't paint it. because of the blau LED lights it looks blue! I will upload more pictures later where you can see it clearly without the LED light :) !

 

Whats that bird ? Why he is always with you :D :D :D  :D

 

Thats Pixel my parrotlet! He always with me when I do the modding, sitting on my shoulder and (in his opinion) helping me .. ;) ! haha

Aluminium bars to hold the radiator in place, making the thread and than screwing the radiator onto them.
