Default Corsair 800Dutch MbK

Corsair 800Dutch MbK


Sponsored by:










We are back!!!

Didnt post much buildlogs on the forums these last months, because of some personal stuff.
But I did some builds for events... And also started a nice project with two golden oldies.

These are... two recycle cases: The Corsair 800D and 750D.



Both dismantled.



After this, used the two fronts and one top and bottom.



And I have modified one back so that the mobo tray exactly is in the middle



En de bedoeling is dat aan beide kanten een 480 radiator komt te zitten









Changed the other top, for the external cables to disappear.





With help from mini Kier



And I've made an aluminum backcover and bend a midcover





More soon!!

UPDATE: Corsair 800Dutch MbK


Sponsored by:










Measured and cut a orange acrylic plate to fit one of the midplate



I have covered the bottom of the plate with white vinyl ... more on this later ;)



Bend a aluminum plate to get a separation



On top of this also an orange acrylic plate



On this also a layer of white vinyl.





And then on the white a layer black vinyl.



Bottom now looks like this



When placing a LED strip beneath this the dispersion of light is nice and smooth and because of the white vinyl a better light distribution.





Now the first products of a great sponsor .... GIGABYTE!!!



For this build they provided me some Gigabyte TITAN X GPUs



And a great motherboard: the Gigabyte GA-X99-SOC Force

Putting this together, you'll get this:









Perfect for this build :)

I also have cut a pair of orange plates for the second midplate.







Looking good :)





Back to the top ... I have cut some small orange plates orange acrylic for the bended aluminum and made one edge, which will be placed like this.







What looks like this from the front.





Once en-lighted this will give a nice glow.





Until the next update ;)

UPDATE: Corsair 800Dutch MbK


Sponsored by:










For this build I'm going to use setup in the reservoirs and pumps ... 2 pumps with BP kits, tops and reservoirs on either side of the motherboard. More about this later.





Placed two nice grills onto the radiators



Covered the midplate with orange acrylic





And placed a a layer of white and black vinyl onto the grills.



Also made the midplate black





Used a stip of acrylic for the sides of the rads and also made black.







For this build Corsair sended me two beautiful Dominator? Platinum Series 16GB (4 x 4GB) DDR4 DRAM 3400MHz C16 Memory Kits
Perfect for this motherboard!!!





And mounted some LEDs behind the grills and under the midplate







Finally I will place 4 SSDs at the back of the case, got some nice space left for this.



On both sides 2x SSD. For now red ones for measurments, but there will be other ones.





To be continued!

Thanks!

Time for a new update! I used some other cards to show you how I'm going to make the setup in terms of the water cooling. All tubes going up.





The idea is to connect everything in the upper compartment.



Also did some brainstorming for the sidepanels. For this I used an acrylic orange plate with a black plate on top off this with fanholes



On the sides behind the orange acrylic illuminated with RGB LED strips







In the dark





Also in the Corsair package, beautiful Air Series AF120 LED White Quiet Edition High Airflow 120mm Fans
Which fit perfectly in this build. Therefore exchanged them with the old ones.













Internally, I also added some nice things. For this I called my good friend Pascal with his CNC.
Much easier then sawing ;)
Again a plate as the sides with small slots.





and for eye catcher the same plate with a circle in the middle + inlay with my "MadebyKier" logo.
This is actually 6mm transparent acrylic with this a layer of white and then black vinyl, again for better light distribution.





More soon ;)

This is Awesome stuff! You and other people alike who can create this kind of stuff are very talented! I would surely pay someone to do this as I would not have the skill or knowledge to do so. With that being said, I am very upset that this was the end of the latest update. I'm sitting here ooin and ahhhin at work and come to a hault. I need some more updates! Really digging the orange and black. ;)

UPDATE: Corsair 800Dutch MbK


Sponsored by:










Continuing the story... pasted 1 from the 2 midplates with white vinyl and cut the holes for the tubes



After this black vinyl on it...



And mounted some LED strips between it



Placed some tubes and gives a nice effect







Time to connect everything. For this I've used a big amount of Bitspower adapters and fittings:

2x Bitspower Flow Indicator



2x G1/4" Carbon Black Temperature Sensor Stop Fitting



2x Carbon Black Q Plus-Block



And Bitspower Carbon Black Enhance 90-Degree Dual Multi-Link Adapter



And not to forget the Bitspower G1/4"Carbon Black Enhance Multi-Link For OD 12MM



Connected everything







But still not happy, so added some more adapters:

G1/4" Carbon Black IG1/4" Extenders



G1/4" Carbon Black IG1/4" Extender-15MM



And G1/4" Carbon Black IG1/4" Extender-25MM



Much better :)







Time to add some more lights. Mounted some more RGB strips to both sides to get a nice enlighted edge:



Some orange in front of it:



Pasted some white vinyl on the inside and mounted the black fan plate:



Same thing with the top







Very happy that I've used RGB so I can play with the colors to get the best effect.



But like the combination white and orange best







Decided then that I will make this an open case, so adjusted another piece of orange acryl to get a nice border.





More to come!
