  1. My daughter is happy to have her 1st PC, she loves the Frozen movies so likes the style and politely asked if she could have the PC for her birthday, how could I refuse
  2. Crystal project completed. Thank you to all thats been following on social media and the forums and if anyone has any questions feel free to ask me on here or my other social pages @megadeblow Although this build is intended to be used with white lighting I have included some RGB shots
  3. The final build parts have been fitted, 3 more Masterfan MF120s for the bottom to replace the other 3 I tested with and the MWE 850 Gold V2 PSU from Cooler Master.
  4. Must say, I normally use Afterburner for overclocking but the software that comes with the Palit 3080 (ThunderMaster) is really nice, no bugs so far and makes changing the lighting and overclocking a breeze! The last of the Monocure3D clear resin prints, a very impressive Crystal logo for the top of the case. Here's ,me testing the lighting for the crystals and planning the layout for the wires.
  5. I've made cuts in the top of the case to make some air flaps, this will mean I don't have to remove the top for some extra airflow for the RAD, although it can be placed in a floating position around 10mm from the surface without any modding needed. This cover I've made will house the SSD and also help hide the PSU and wires, replacing the original cover that comes with the case.
  6. Been a bit of a delay with the final part of the build due to missing parts, mostly COVID related issues I've now finally completed the build and will finish of my posts with the last couple of updates before the final photos. Here's one of the crystals that will be used on the inside of the case with some RGB lighting, the plan is to have the build mostly white with some slight blue here and there, when completed it will be my daughters 1st PC and she loves how it reminds her of Frozen the movie. 3D printed a surround for the front crystal
  7. For the main window crystals I worked on 2 options, they'll be printed in resin and for the smaller ones that's also getting done in resin I printed some tests as I await the crystal clear resin from Monocure3D, far as I know I will be the first to use this new resin so im looking forward to seeing the results. Another 3D part is the hole surround for the front of the case, printed a test again then a better detailed final part that will be sanded, primed, gloss black then airbrushed.
  8. Working with new materials on this project, the crystal style plastics im using on this build are a bit tricky to bend but easy enough to cut and sand. For the feet I went with fake diamonds, was going to use real ones but couldn't find a sponsor unfortunately the front looks great, some nice texture to it and some added depth thanks to the metal polishing, without that it looked too milky. Display window cut for the crystal display that will be the main focus on the front of the case.
  9. The motherboard is a ASrock B550 PG Velocit, also got a nice surprise hoodie Wanted a silver board for the same reason I painted the case silver and polished some parts, to help with lighting and background.
  10. The main GPU for this build, and the inspiration is the Palit OC Game Rock RTX3080 A very solid card and a nice change from the normal black plastic, especially as this wont be watercooled for now. Comes with a nice plexi brace, manual and a PCIE adapter.
  11. After I stripped the case down I got to work sanding and priming the plastic parts and the main structure of the case. 1st coat of silver, started to rain so quickly moved it all back in the shed for the second. The external metal panels are getting sanded down, although the paint on the metal is very nice, I need it a bit more reflective. Original paint on the right, sanded one the left prior to buffing. Painting it chrome was considered, however I will also be working with very high heat on the p
  12. Starting off with the case, mainly because it's the first part to arrive, meaning I can start work on some of the main parts straight away. The SL600M has the PSU at the front, this means I can have most the wires hidden in the front and try to keep the main window free to display the GPU, MB and most the components without having to remove much. The case comes with 2 big 140mm fans on the bottom, I might keep them as this first part of the build will have the GPU air cooled, I will if I get time and a block becomes available then go for a full custom loop for the GPU and CPU.
  13. Welcome to my latest project log, The project name i've gone for is "Crystal" The name and the whole concept is based on some new products that's coming/come to market this month that i'll be using in this build. The Game Rock 3080 from Palit is one of the inspirations for the theme. I like to try new things with every build and hopefully learn something new, so along with the usual painting, 3D printing and other techniques I'll also be using texture plastics and resin for the first time as the main 3D printing material. This allows for lots of clear detail and very solid p
  14. STOLEN! At least give credit to the person you stole the whole thing from but did a bad job at reproducing. Dont ask for help again and I will be shaming you on all the forums you turd muncher. https://www.facebook.com/megadeblow/photos/a.1491306527764720/1797350807160289/?type=3&theater
