[casemod] Anubis

CapTen

Welcome to my next Project


"Anubis"

Anubis is portrayed in old traditions as a jackal,
whose task was to lead the souls of the people into the land of the dead.

In this project a jackal head should be polygonized and adapted to the Cougar Conquer.
I have had this idea for a long time but when I saw this case for the first time it was time to put the idea into action.

Furthermore, 2 300mm reservoirs are to be mounted on each side of the housing and be clad with aluminum to suit the case.
Here's a short taste but see for yourself how I implemented this idea.

Time for the first update.
First, I built the head out of paper.
Sounds easy, but it is not XD

k-_MG_3988.jpg

So I could now transfer the measurements from the paper head to Plexiglas and have cut this.
Depending on how large the existing plexiglass was, a circular, stitch or the scroll saw was used.
For the most part, I was only able to recycle leftovers here, which is why I also used the various plexiglass varieties.

k-_MG_3990.jpg

after everything was sawn clean and straightened I began to grind all edges to miter.
Now I could stick one part after the other with Akryfix R192.

k-_MG_3991.jpg

k-_MG_3995.jpg

After everything had been glued and dried, I additionally filled in all splices with Akryfix and reinforced.
After coarse sanding, all necessary parts were prepared with polyester putty for painting.

k-_MG_3997.jpg

k-_MG_4000.jpg

After several coats of primer and spray filler I fastened the head to the housing by means of a hinge.

k-_MG_4013.jpg

fits pretty well I have to say.

k-_MG_4016.jpg

Now I have set on both sides cutouts to reach the USB slots and the power Buttons.

k-_MG_4022.jpg

k-_MG_4023.jpg

Now I have painted the head completely black matt from inside and outside

k-_MG_4024.jpg

k-_MG_4026.jpg

Next, I want to provide the project with different round elements.
For this I cut with a hole cutter a few circles in two sizes.

k-_MG_3999.jpg

This I then slanted with the router laterally to 60 degrees and deepened the inner area

k-_MG_4001.jpg

to sink there 3mm Plexiglas can. This was eventually cut also briefly before.

k-_MG_4002.jpg

k-_MG_4003.jpg

The slices I now cut in the form of wings which are later to rotate by means of a Motor.

k-_MG_4005.jpg

Now I also started to prime everything here and to spatula until I had a nice smooth surface for painting.

k-_MG_4025.jpg

The orange side of the case went to the collar.
First of all, sanded again, primed with Alugrundierung and then painted black.

k-_MG_4010.jpg

Since my loop later, as always, something special, I had to put holes on the case for the radiator

k-_MG_4052.jpg

Now I cut with the circular saw 2mm aluminum and bent it in the form of the side part.
So I've created a relatively small space to hide cables and
In addition, the whole hardware area looks even neater.

k-_MG_4054.jpg

k-_MG_4055.jpg

Now I have further processed the sheet for mounting the SSD's and the cable guide of the 24pin ATX connector,
which I want to provide later with 10mm cable conduits.

k-_MG_4064.jpg

k-_MG_4065.jpg

Okay the beginning is done.
The next update will come soon ;)

Chapter 2



Now it goes to the reservoir.

First I cut me a 5mm thick aluminum rail as a carrier for mounting

k-_MG_4011.jpg

this then provided with the corresponding holes

k-_MG_4018.jpg

and shaped the ends to match the housing screws

k-_MG_4019.jpg

Now I had to equip the premium AGB holders of Bitspower with an additional thread

k-_MG_4035.jpg

k-_MG_4036.jpg

k-_MG_4037.jpg

k-_MG_4040.jpg

Now I drew the cover of the reservoir on 2mm aluminum.
Before, of course, there were tons of paper templates before I decided to design.

k-_MG_4043.jpg

After that, all openings were sawed out

k-_MG_4046.jpg

k-_MG_4048.jpg

k-_MG_4049.jpg

Before bending the aluminum, I cut all the edges to be bent by about half with the flex.


k-_MG_4060.jpg

After that I could bend it relatively easily by means of a cheap bending bench.

k-_MG_4061.jpg

Now everything was prepared as usual for painting and painted black.

k-_MG_4078.jpg

Now I've made an S-light for indirect lighting for the reservoirs.
For this I cut myself 8mm plexiglass and scored this every 2mm with a cutter knife.

k-_MG_4125.jpg

k-_MG_4126.jpg

Now I needed a white translucent Plexiglas disc that scatters the light and a small strip on which I glue the LED Stripe

k-_MG_4127.jpg

Lack of space, I glued from below and at the ends no plexiglass. All unnecessary openings were simply filled with polyester putty.
I now taped the white diffuser and painted the whole S-light black.
The other plate later serves as a side PSU cover

k-_MG_4132.jpg

k-_MG_4133.jpg

Not bad, that's how I imagined it

k-_MG_4141.jpg

k-_MG_4143.jpg

The S-Light I have now attached from the inside with double-sided tape

k-_MG_4148.jpg

In order to blind the lower part of the reservoir, I cut myself 0.75 mm aluminum sheet,
  curved in shape, painted black and covered with 4D carbon foil on the outside

k-_MG_4221.jpg

k-_MG_4225.jpg

Okay I hope it was interesting.
To be continued;)

Chapter 3
 
Hello and on we go.
By the way, the Strix 1070ti had to be converted to water cooling.

k-_MG_4079.jpg
 
k-_MG_4080.jpg
 
Now it was up to the attachment of the round elements.
The two small holes are for attachment and the big hole is for the shaft on which the wings are attached.
 
k-_MG_4087.jpg
 
k-_MG_4096.jpg
 
k-_MG_4097.jpg
 
Now the drive.
I had disassembled a defective printer and removed all existing engines.
Here I have chosen a suitable and now built a small bracket for it.
Basically, this is just a small aluminum L-profile which I have edited something for the engine and a small
Piece of aluminum sheet for attachment to the housing .
 
k-_MG_4098.jpg
 
k-_MG_4099.jpg
 
To adjust the engine, the holes were ground in slots
 
k-_MG_4101.jpg
 
Now the pump has been modified a bit.
First, I cut a Plexiglas tube and glued both ends with Plexiglas
 
k-_MG_4053.jpg
 
I cut a triangle into the visible opening
 
k-_MG_4057.jpg
 
and then work the outside edge with the router
 
k-_MG_4058.jpg
 
The holder for the pump is 2mm aluminum sheet.
I crimped this at the ends, using a POM tube in the diameter of the pump.
 
k-_MG_4068.jpg
 
The whole thing fits together like that
 
k-_MG_4071.jpg
 
k-_MG_4072.jpg
 
Now I have painted the pump attachment and the holder black
 
k-_MG_4085.jpg
 
and mounted on the rear foot of the Case
 
k-_MG_4095.jpg
 
After the paint had hardened well I covered the back with chrome foil.
The cables were then hidden in cable protection conduits from the hardware store.
 
k-_MG_4107.jpg
 
As a pad for the pump holder, I cut now 8mm Plexiglas
 
k-_MG_4158.jpg
 
have chamfered edges and cut a groove for an LED Sripe
 
k-_MG_4160.jpg
 
k-_MG_4161.jpg
 
The edges have now been sanded with 600 grit sandpaper and the underside simply covered with black foil
 
k-_MG_4162.jpg
 
Now the LEDs are mounted and attached to the housing together with the pump
 
k-_MG_4163.jpg
 
So that the whole construction fits into the overall picture, I have built this small element which is then screwed onto the pump from above.
 
k-_MG_4165.jpg

Thx Bro ?

 

Chapter 4
 
Time for cable laying and everything that goes with it.
For the small round element, I attached a potentiometer to the rear end of the upper case cover.
 
k-_MG_4102.jpg
 
k-_MG_4103.jpg
 
For the wing, I glued a small piece of Plexiglas and sanded it into shape, which can easily be attached and now I can use it to regulate the speed of the motor.
 
k-_MG_4106.jpg
 
In the SSD tray, a hole had to be set for the piping because it rests in the lower area directly on the front radiator
 
k-_MG_4107.jpg
 
Now I began to purchase all attachments of the housing with chrome foil
 
k-_MG_4108.jpg
 
The loop has now been relocated. The position of the ball valve was still changed because I did not like this and the black angle Fittings were finally exchanged for chrome, I had miscalculated something.
The loop thus passes from the pump into the VGA and then to the CPU
 
k-_MG_4113.jpg
 
From the CPU down into the upper radiator
 
k-_MG_4114.jpg
 
From there it goes with two pipes above the IO panel over and into the front radiator again purely. One of the two tubes I have taken out of action with a silicone grafting (photo follows)
 
k-_MG_4116.jpg
 
k-_MG_4119.jpg

k-_MG_4120.jpg
 
From the front radiator it goes inside out through the SSD tray and then dual through both reservoirs
 
k-_MG_4118.jpg
 
and finally back to the pump.
 
k-_MG_4117.jpg
 
In order to still have the wlan antennas standing around separately, a small aluminum angle was cut here

k-_MG_4121.jpg
 
and above the motherboard attached to the case and later also painted and partly covered with foil.
 
k-_MG_4122.jpg
 
For a reasonably orderly cable laying had to be drilled here and there still holes.
This is directly under the IO Panel. A fan assembly from the outside is probably not intended for this case.
 
k-_MG_4124.jpg
 
For the 24er ATX cable I have built a short extension and pushed in 4-strands through the cable conduits.
 
k-_MG_4135.jpg

k-_MG_4136.jpg
 
in order to keep the cable conduits in position, there still had to be needle and thread. This makes it possible to keep even normal sleeved cables in a relatively inconspicuous shape.
 
k-_MG_4149.jpg
 
Now I did not like the optics on the right side of the mainboard so I made a strip of Plexiglas, satinized the cut edges
 
k-_MG_4150.jpg
 
and glued on the back still 1cm thick Plexiglas as a spacer on it.
 
k-_MG_4151.jpg
 
This strip I have now stuck with spy film. After 10 attempts without satisfactory success, everything did not help
and I had to foil it directly under the water in the bathtub to avoid getting dust inclusions and Blisters.
 
k-_MG_4152.jpg

k-_MG_4153.jpg
 
The Z-Caps with LEDs of the reservoir I have directly connected to the cables of my S-Lights.
 
k-_MG_4154.jpg
 
in order to connect everything directly to the board, adapters were needed
 
k-_MG_4156.jpg
 
So that I can continue to open the cover of the Conquer I fixed the cable from the potentiometer inconspicuously from the inside with black insulating tape.
 
k-_MG_4157.jpg
 
 
Okay, I have not documented every smallest cable, but on the whole it was.
It lacks only a small reactor for the front and then I would be ready but more on that later

Chapter 5
 
 
 
Happy 4th Advent and welcome to Chapter 5, the last update.
Even though I was already more than happy with the whole project,
In spite of all this, I decided to add another round element to the front, the reactor.

First, I took some thermoforming foil and a fruit bowl and made an impression of the fruit bowl
 
k-_MG_4171.jpg
 
I cut this and stuck it in a 1cm thick Plexiglas ring which I previously beveled to 60 degrees.
 
k-_MG_4172.jpg
 
In addition, he got a 3mm bottom plate
 
k-_MG_4177.jpg
 
which I now attached from below
 
k-_MG_4178.jpg
 
Now I stuck the whole inner area with white matt foil and protect the later glowing places with black foil
 
k-_MG_4182.jpg
 
k-_MG_4183.jpg
 
Now I painted the white foil silver. Unfortunately, I was not able to obtain the range with the chrome foil, because it is much more stable than the white foil and I can not expose the thermoforming film so too high temperatures.
 
k-_MG_4190.jpg
 
As the paint dries, I cut another 1 cm thick circle, slanted the edges back to 60 degrees and worked it a bit with the router.
 
k-_MG_4191.jpg
 
Now I cut my logo out of 3mm Plexiglas
 
k-_MG_4197.jpg
 
and satin, the cut edges with 600 wet sandpaper
 
k-_MG_4198.jpg
 
After I painted the circle once outside black, I took the lying surfaces with chrome foil which is plotted in the area of my logo.
So I can make the logo shine through backlight.
 
k-_MG_4199.jpg
 
After the reactor had hardened I protected the silver area with foil and painted the rest black.
After everything was done, I removed all the foil (except for the silver painted understood) and varnished everything again with semi-gloss varnish..
Now I have stuck the reactor with two chrome rings and finished.
 
k-_MG_4200.jpg
 
Now I placed in the reactor still digital LEDs and provided them immediately with a plug to continue to remove the front can.
 
k-_MG_4214.jpg
 
The other circle I have now also provided with a few accents.
I now position this exactly on the backplate of the CPU.
 
k-_MG_4218.jpg
 
For lighting, I soldered a LED stripe to a small square and put it in the recessed area on the back of my logo.
 
k-_MG_4219.jpg

Soooo that was it again.
The project is finished, in the next post, all final photos will follow as soon as possible
