[Build Log] Project ReVolt - InWin, Bitspower, Teamgroup

 

Untitled-1-Recovered-Recovered_thumb_png_b71c146a40a9f04c653b6d8e18a479c7.png.db4f7f10fada3e9211a544c22938c5e7.png

 

 

 

 

Ok so its time for a new project, for those who follow me on Instagram know this project has already begun. My last build, Project Inkling, had a bad leak with the PETG tubing. The tubing shrunk around he fitting area due to heat causing coolant to leak all over my strix gtx 1080. So while I waited for bitspower to acknowledge this and send replacement tubing and fittings (this time 16mm OD Crystal Link acrylic tubing) I decided it was time for an upgrade. While I loved the uniqueness of the build I felt there was just too much going on. This time around I wanted to incorporate my favorite color, orange, and what better color to pair with than white. Hope you enjoy this build log as much as I have enjoyed working on this build.

First its time to disassemble the InWin polaris rgb 120mm fans to paint.

Once everything was tapped up and prepped for paint then it was time to spray. Unfortunately I live in an apartment at the moment and can't use my spray gun and I do not have an ideal place to paint so I'm just using spray paint and doing outside in the parking lot lol

My goal was that the white on the blades will help difuse the rgb and give them a nice glow since the leds are in the hubDSC_0415.thumb.JPG.c1bc0de71846ecac7d8ad16e6382cc09.JPG

 

Will be adding a custom decal later

Testing the lighting effect and it's perfect, exactly how I was expecting 

DSC_0405.thumb.JPG.a563e19d77023e5cc89aa8328634a3ac.JPG

 

Once all fans were painted and cured at least 24 hours I assembled them and got them ready for the decals

DSC_0601.thumb.JPG.e4c508e9fb9d7d38d0f86b1637799bb4.JPG

 

And the custom decals were made and place perfectly center. I actually used 2 layers, the bottom layer was white then layed the black layer directly over to create a solid decal

Next it was time to make a custom mid plate to make the inside nice and clean. My last build in the 303 I cut out around the front IO area and to me wasn't that nice, this time I decided to cover it with some nice bends. DSC_0458.thumb.JPG.ced4a54b597d1bf85cb45459c0e5ed36.JPG

 

Then I wanted to run my cables through nice and neat but since I don't have a laser cutter, cnc, or even a drill press I decided to cut out the space just big enough that my cable combs would cover then attach the acrylic combs with acrylic weldDSC_0517.thumb.JPG.2b0a71dba114437c1168f91572d96e38.JPG

 

I attached both my 24pin comb and 14pin comb for the gpu and then painted the base coat white

 

DSC_0549.thumb.JPG.49b8d9decb19960f00423a65ef487011.JPG

 

Then painted the design which makes it seem the cables continue through the panel

Hope everyone likes the build so far ?

thank you! and for sponsors you got to have something that will benefit the company, they want their products to be advertised. Also you need to have previous builds to show your work and a project idea that they like. I have sent many emails and have been turned down by many companies, I am fortunate to have received the little support I have. Before emailing any company have a fantastic build proposal that will get their attention.

Next time to figure out a design for the custom side panel. I want this to be on the inside so I can still use the stock glass side panel. The plan is to have an rgb strip along the inside of the case illuminating the panel. I want it to have a gradation to the lighting so not to take away focus from the inside so. I need to figure out the best way to mount the rgb strip

DSC_0471.thumb.JPG.843650381fa88819dd754650b4f455c1.JPG

 

I want it to have layers to make it more visually appealing. Next was to paint the layers

 

DSC_0474.thumb.JPG.9bc2ccc832863856e7e895be0d5cc153.JPG

 

Then time to cut and paint the top layers. Everything was hand cut so it's not quite as percise as I would like but I'm doing the best with what I have. I first painted the peices black then taped up the edges and then painted them white as I didn't want any light to shine through the top layer. 

 

DSC_0606.thumb.JPG.4f6c6afef44f1ae8ed69af2806b707ef.JPG

 

Then I added a few of the sponsor logos and the ROG logo (not sponsored, just looked cool lol) then tested the lighting effect, and it turned out as expected.

Since I had painted the io shield for project Inkling I needed to remove the paint and bring the shield back to the original look. This took a little time but it came out great. DSC_0407.thumb.JPG.7f6121ade1835dbfc0e659385c789aeb.JPG_20181102_105210.thumb.JPG.863473f6ab7a6da0602b60821ef14e87.JPG

 

I also had to strip and repaint the ddc pump from bitspower to fit with the new build. I also sleeved all the cables black.

Next I made custom full cables (not extentions) and the orange sleeving matched the build perfectly. Also the decal in this fan was the first revision and was later inverted.

Was able to get everything installed (some things will be changed as I'm still waiting for them to arrive) and ran the cables through the mid plate I made. Perfect fit and the paint matched up nicely to the colors on the cables. Also I love how nicely the gpu cables fit between the card and pump. Still waiting on the Nighthawk memory, new graphics card and custom rgb backplate

I also was able to get the tubes bent and fitted. I am using 16mm OD crystal link acrylic tubing from bitspower. Have always loved working with acrylic tubing, it takes a little longer to bend but looks so much better. These bends especially the double and triple bends were a little tricky but I think the shape goes well with the overall theme. Also the masking tape was used to protect the cables from any coolant spilling while filling and to train them to stay in place. Also the orange coolant that's in the res was from the leak test but was not happy with the color so I will use clear coolant instead

While I am waiting for the new graphics card to arrive I figured it would be a good time to clean and polish the strix 1080 waterblock from Bitspower. This was a sponsor sample so there were many cnc marks and it was not polished but I took care of it ?

 

Before polishing attached to the 1080

After polishing not attached to card

OK got the new gpu in as well as the Nighthawk RGB memory from teamgroup. I also had to get a new cpu block because the threads got messed up (not from painting) this time however I decided to keep the block polished but added a little flare to it. I also painted the extra mounting bracket black and loved how it looked.
