[S Frame] Plum Blossom

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi everybody and welcome to my newest log!



This build is going to be based around the mighty S Frame,a case I have been itching to mod since it first released,thanks Katerina @ In Win NL for giving me the last one they had!
https://www.inwin-style.com/en/gaming-chassis/S-Frame
Im going for a mecha look this time using the same colour palette as LUMO but with the yellow as highlight rather than the dominant colour.
It seems a shame to take drills,saws and files to such a beauty of a case but I have big plans...

Power is coming from my trusty 1500w Platimax,about time it did stuff other than powering pumps when filling loops!

Watercooling to come from EK of course!

This one is a labour of love so it will not be a quick log and I do ask people comment,positive/negative doesnt matter,feedback is welcomed!

Thanks to the contributors to this log,ASUS UK,EKWB,G Skill and the ever awesome In Win!

Don't quote long post like that, it clutter the forum and make it hard to read. Thanks

Just curious, are you watercooling the cards? I can't imagine having all that on a triple rad of any size. (though you could be like me and stuff a 480 in there instead ;)) Custom blocks for them maybe? ;););)

I will be eventually. ASUS want me to show off RGB....(sigh) but it will get the blocks after they show it off for a bit.

After a delay,in which I moved to Slovenia to be part of EK's R&D department,here is a small update in the progression of my labour of love on this case....

I wanted to keep the drive 'bays' for the 4x 1Tb SSD's so I had to find alternatives....

So the I/O panel in the front was taken out,drilled, and used for the mount,around .5mm between the panel and the case!

This puts the HDD out of view and still leaves room to suck the spare cabling into,there will be a little vanity plate covering the top and shielding everything from view.

Lets add a 'one of a kind' EK Rampage V ED10 monoblock!

And 2 500Gb WD Black HDD's which I had laying around,these will add a little surface detail,something that should go well with the mecha feel.

And a 6900k? Go on then....

And with the EK XE360?

Yum! Awaiting the cable clips from Nanoxia so the wiring can be done,this is the next job on the list.....

Progress is slow...im hibernating!

Paint is a 3 stage flouro yellow,the same used with LUMO.

I also started mounting the cable clamps from my new sponsor Nanoxia!

Sharp drill bits are a must,many,many holes to drilll......

I know....I have not been updating very often......but......

Blocks are nearly done along with the rads,I used LUMO yellow and marblizing solution to get the effect.....and like last time,I need a boat load of clear to finish them up. Luckily I have some awesome 2K clear to hand!
Now I am just waiting for a nice day....

Now to get on with the S Frame itself.

The paint is LUMO yellow with a black based marble with silver overlay. 2k clear to finish.

Very pleased with how they came out!

Looking great! My OCD tells me you should paint the red "PRO" on the SSD and the red power/reset button on the mobo ;)

 

Edit: and possibly the writing on the IO shroud.
