|Build log| Redefine

Hi guys

I'm new to this forum and what better to introduce myself than show you my rig and planed updates. Here is my project Redefine. It's based of Fractal Designs define mini.

img3456v.jpg

Hardware list

Cpu: Intel I5 2500K

Mbo: Asus Maximus geneZ IV gen 3

Gpu: Asus gtx 670 dcuII

Ram: Gskill RipjawsX

Sdd: OCZ vertex 4 128gb

Hdd: WD caviar black 1tb

Psu: Corsair ax 850

Cooling: Corsair h100

Case: Fractal design define mini

The build is in it's late stages but i tought i'll sare it with you. Things I've done so far

360 mod. It's mod I done so the case would accommodate 360 radiator in the front. I removed all hdd cages and 5,25" bay and cut the front of the case and made a custom bracket.

Window mod. It consists of two windows on the case so it could show the inside of the case. One is on the side panel and other one is on the top.

Painted the case with structure spray to set the finis off from the standard powdercoat.

Cable sleeving with paracord.

SSD mod. I made custom bracket to mount the ssd in the back of the mobo tray.

False floor. I cut the aluminum to cover the fan holes in the bottom of the case.

Cable management bracket. So I could tidy up the back of the motherboard tray.

I have seen your built on other forum, and I must admit it's looking amazing.

Could you tell me what's the name of that cable tester?

After watching your pics for few times I started thinking about mATX rig ; ))

Wow, great looking build.. Almost positive you'll get featured on the Live stream with something looking that awesome and all the clean lines to it.. Awesome mods on the case as well, really makes it stand out from other people builds with this being a popular case.

I thought I can't mount a 360 rad in the R4, you did it in the mini.. WOW

the sleeving is paracord, right? is it from Lutro0 Customs? did you used MDPC heatshrink?

Thank you all for your kind words. Hope to finish this build soon so I can take some better pictures:)

Awesome! Stunning build! I thought I can't mount a 360 rad in the R4' date=' you did it in the mini.. WOW the sleeving is paracord, right? is it from Lutro0 Customs? did you used MDPC heatshrink? again, just awesome. :D[/quote']

The paracord is some random 550 cord from ebay and the shrink is from mdpc. I was kinda dissapointed wth red heatshrink. Its somewhat pale and not the same color as paracord. I also used other shrink from Nils for some client jobs and those were great.
