Default Kier - Green Lantern Scratch Build



Hi Y'all,

Finished this scratch build a few weeks ago, but some people asked me to start a buildlog. So here it is: The Green Lantern Scratch Build.

This will be an open tower build with lots of black and green acrylic. Also want to hide the GPU and only show the motherboard and custom bitspower water cooling.
First I just wanted to make a black and green build, but after some comments I changed it into a Green Latern theme.

Specs:

Case: Scratch
CPU: Intel® Core™ i7-4770K
Motherboard: ASUS Gryphon Z97 ARMOR Edition
GPU: STRIX-GTX980-DC2OC-4GD5
PSU: ... 800W
RAM: CORSAIR Dominator platinum 16GB
Fans: 3x CORSAIR HD120 RGB LED PWM Fan
Cooling: Custom Bitspower water cooling

Episode 1

I started with a 240 rad and mounted two CORSAIR HD120 RGB fans on it.
Measured and cut a horizontal black acrylic "midplate" with fanholes and placed two brackets vertical on this.
After this I've made a motherboard tray µATX size and mounted this onto the brackets.



On top of the black I took the same size and made a green plate with a slot in it for the PCI-E riser to "hide" the GPU below the midplate.



Added some nice shapes for the fanholes, but in this stadium it wasn't a Green Lantern build. So this will change.



After some good measuring I've added Bitspower rotary's for the radiator (left) and the CPU (right)



In a perfect straight line with the CPU block using some adapters.



Also made a bracket/ riser to lay down the GPU with water block, just high enough to get a perfect horizontal line regarding the PETG tube.



Removed the In/ Outlet block from the main block and made a gap in a piece of aluminium. This for stability and carrying the weight of the rear from the midplate.



More coming your way!!!

Love these CORSAIR HD120 RGB fans!!! Beautiful effect :)





Then I've made a bottom plate, first black and then again a 3mm green piece. Of course also with a big slot for the airflow over the rad.



And added some case feed



I had a nice little PSU laying around and have exchanged the original fan also for a CORSAIR HD120 fan



Removed the original cables and made them just long enough to connect



Little test :)





Made some " sidepanels"



And added the pump and some more Bitspower adapters
