    Hello once again for reading my project log. This is a short and sweet update I installed the backplates onto the GTX980 Ti Strix GPUs, then went ahead and installed them into the S-Frame chassis. 

     
    I have plans to add some custom brushed aluminium panels into the sections of the backplates so that it matches perfectly with the project design. Please let me know what you think, but keep in mind that I will have acrylic water blocks installed with black cooland running through the system...

    GPU backplates made by V1Tech
     
     
     
    Hello my friends once again!

     
    Once upon a time I had an interesting discussion with Hassan Alaw, the founder of the modding company V1Tech. On this one beautiful morning he had sent me an email expressing his interest for becoming a sponsor for any of my upcoming projects. So I took the time to learn CoralDraw X7 so that I could whip up some designs, and in the end I decided to design some custom backplates for these fabulous ASUS GTX980 Ti Strix GPUs.

     
    The thinking behind this design was something light, with angles, that would compliment the design features of the S-Frame, and the Origami folded paper design. I could not but help to have the ASUS and Strix logos to show that these beast GPUs are nothing but the best GTX980 TI on the market. Granted this is only my opinion, and not up for discrimination I went ahead and scanned the backplate of one Strix GPU, then imported the file into CoralDraw. I simply traced out the outer line, then made a design Child's play to be honest!

     
    With this all designed up, I sent the file to Hassan, who then went ahead and laser cut my design. I can recommend his services at V1Tech not because he sponsored the cutting of these backplates. but rather his communication and speed of completing these is what I base my recommendation on. 

     
    I will get these installed onto the Strix GPUs in the next few days, so please hang tight and check out these bad boys!

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
     
    So thank you once again for taking the time to take a look at my Origami project, and hope to hear back from you what you guys think

    Hardware update, and various announcements.
     
     
     
    Well it has been a VERY long time since I was last able to update my wonderful Origami project! I hope that you guys have not lost interest as I have some hardware porn in the form of 2x GTX980 Ti Strix courtesy of ASUS ROG Nordic!
     
    The reason why I have been busy away from this project is because of two reasons. The 1st is because my wife and I welcomed out second child into out family - Xander William He is an eating and pooing machine, which leaves little to no time to even think about ones' own self. The 2nd is because I am a participant in the LDLC Modding Trophy 2015, which means that I am competing against some of the worlds leading PC builders and modders! To be a part of this competition is an honour, and to be regarded on the same level as these guys (some who are my modding idols!) makes me so happy! With this considered, I took some time to nail down a design for that modding project while I waited on hardware to be delivered for Origami.
     
    Other small updates with this project - I am currently designing custom backplates for this project with Hassan Alaw from V1Tech/Harbinger - Still waiting on the delivery from Bitspower - Parvenu have expressed in fabricating the back panel for me which hides and protects the dual radiator set up behind the motherboard - Custom cables and vinyls are on their way to me from moddingstylez.de and custom aluminium cable combs from Goshumodz as well.
     
    With this said, I have the honour to show to you some really impressive GPUs - considered to be the best on the market in terms of design and performance! I would like to introduce to you the pair of GTX980 Ti Strix courtesy of ASUS ROG Nordic. Thank you for the support, and believing in my work!
     
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
    So thank you all once again for joining me for my latest update on project Origami. next update will be of when I install the panels and hardware into the chassis, and start on the cable management, all in preparation for the water cooling parts to come in. So please stick around

    Origami

    An In Win S-Frame project
     
    By MetallicAcid
     
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Hello everybody, and welcome to yet another of my modded projects! I would like to introduce you to my project named "Origami" which features the exclusive In Win S-Frame chassis.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    The name Origami is inspired by the way this single 2m long, 4mm thick aluminium plate has been folded 15 times to give this unique chassis it's form. There is no floor or roof, and tempered glass panels which really set this chassis aside from most all other PC enclosures on the market today. I felt that I would take on the challenge of modding this chassis to enhance its design in typical MetallicAcid style, complete with brushed aluminium panels, and a full custom water cooled loop with hardline tubing.
     
     
     
     
     
     
    Definition of "Origami" according to Dictionary.com:
    [awr-i-gah-mee] 
    noun, plural origamis for 2.
    The traditional Japanese art or technique of folding paper into a variety of 
    decorative or representational forms, as of animals or flowers.
     
     
     
     
     
     

    Hardware:
    CPU - Intel Core i7 4790k
    GPU - 2x ASUS GTX980 Ti Strix 6GB
    Chassis - In Win S-Frame
    Motherboard - ASUS Sabertooth Z97 Mark S
    PSU - SilverStone ST1200-G Evolution
    RAM - Kingston HyperX Fury White 1866mhz 16GB (4x4GB)
    SSD - Kingston Predator PCIE SSD 240GB

     
     
     
     
     
     
    This project has been made possible by the following companies who have provided their products and services. Thank you for believing in my work, and allowing me to continue doing that which I genuinely love to do!

    Update 4
    Lots of modding!
     
     
    Hey guys and girls!
     
    I have a nice sized update with lots of different modding Here you will see the installation of a new power button, new custom cables for the PSU, new case feet and cutting a larger hole into the motherboard tray for the CPU cooler bracket!
     
     
    So, lets start with the new case feet!

     

     

     

     
     
     
     
    Next up we have the motherboard tray cut out, which allows for the bracket of the CPU cooler to sit without pressing against, and flexing the PCB
     

     

     
     
     
    Here I bore out the hole to a larger diameter, then install a 16mm vandal switch
     

     

     

     
     
     
    And last up I create some custom length cables. Fine tuning will come in a later update, as well as some gorgeous cables sleeve
     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
    More updates coming up real soon guys, so stick around

    An In Win S-Frame project   By MetallicAcid           Project made possible by following sponsors: ASUS    ||    Nordic Hardware Intel    ||    Inet Kingston    ||    Ocaholic In Win    ||    SilverStone Carplus.se    ||    Dremel Modding Stylz    ||    Gosumodz V1Tech    ||    Bitspower             Final photo shoot - Project Origami is finished!!!       Hello once more to my latest and last update to my beloved project Origami - my modding project featuring an In Win S-Frame with custom pearl white paint!   This project has been a wild ride, and very enjoyable as well. It has been a challenge of both skill, and my patience and I believe that I have grown as a modder because of the experiences I have had while working on this project.   With this update, I am proud to present the Origami - in all of it's completed glory.                                                                                                                          
      As a small teaser for you guys, I am already finished with another PC modding project using a Fractal Design Define S with a redefined internal layout and custom water cooling. A build log for this project will be created when it is finished after the end of January.   I will also be starting a new project from February featuring some of the latest hardware from both Corsair and ASUS, so stay tuned for that announcement here on the forums.   So thank you all once again for following my project. I really hope that you have enjoyed this journey as much as I have creating it. Please leave a comment with what you think of the project, and how I can improve my work for any future projects   With best regards, Justin "MetallicAcid" Ohlsen

    Oh my god... It has been almost a century since I have updated  this project thread. With our 4month old, buying a house, entering competitions and starting a modding community, I have not had much time infront of the PC to post anything for my beloved project Origami.


     
    So without any further waiting, I would like to post a massive update for your reading pleasure!
     


    An In Win S-Frame project
     
    By MetallicAcid
     
     
     
     
     
    Project made possible by following sponsors:
    ASUS    ||    Nordic Hardware
    Intel    ||    Inet
    Kingston    ||    Ocaholic
    In Win    ||    SilverStone
    Carplus.se    ||    Dremel
    Modding Stylz    ||    Gosumodz
    V1Tech    ||    Bitspower

     
     
     
     
     
    Super massive F-Off update of epic proportions. WARNING: Prep some new underwear...
     
     
     
    Let me start off by thank you for your patience. Without you all following my work, inspiring me with your own projects and giving me suggestions on how I can improve, I would not enjoy create what I create! So thank you.
     
    With this update, I would like to show you all of the progress right up until just before I took the final photos for this project... Yes - it is finished and being used already, I just not have had the time to sit down like now and formulate this update for you. I will try to talk through the images so you know what I am doing and thinking, and it is not just a massive photo dump which will bog down your bandwidth..

    Installing the backplates - Before any modifications to them

     

     
     
     
     
     
    Bitspower parts delivery and sponsorship announcement! Such quality, much fittings wow!

    Backplate modification with custom cut and brushed aluminium panels

     

     
     
     
     
     
    Custom radiator bracket which is to be mounted behind the motherboard tray

     

     
     
     
     
    Custom panel to hide unused front IO panel holes

     

     

     
     
     
     
     
    Removed unwanted cables and sleeving the remainder

     

     

     
     
     
     
    Installed pump mod kit and sleeved cables, then took a porn shot of the PC on my desk

     

     
     
     
     
     
     
    Measuring and installing the reseroir

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
     
    Removing the red anodizing and brushing the screws

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     
     
     
     
    From here after the photos are pretty sparse until I take the final photos.. This is because of a combination of things and time constraints which made me focus only on the modding and building of this project and not the photography with the DSLR. Most of those images ended up being taken on the phone "on the fly" and posted up on FB or Instagram.
     
     
     
    So thank you once again for joining me on this journey. The next time I post it will be with the final photos for this project. Please stay tuned as they will be shown within in the week!

    Hello once again for reading my project log. This is a short and sweet update I installed the backplates onto the GTX980 Ti Strix GPUs, then went ahead and installed them into the S-Frame chassis. 

     
    I have plans to add some custom brushed aluminium panels into the sections of the backplates so that it matches perfectly with the project design. Please let me know what you think, but keep in mind that I will have acrylic water blocks installed with black cooland running through the system...
