Hello all!! I'm John, aka Shadotracker, and I'm beyond grateful to have a chance to mod this case!

 

This case is a really beautiful case with tempered glass on 4 sides! Also it as enough room to do as you please in regards to your imagination!

 

I would like to thank Blake for giving me the chance to build in this beautiful case!

 

This case design will be based on Rainbow Six: Siege, a game that I have played since the beta and still play it to this day! In fact, Siege will complete its first full year of release soon and I would love to honor their success with this build!

 

 

Case - Corsair 570x

Motherboard - ASUS x99 Sabertooth

GPU - GTX 1060

CPU - i7-6850k

RAM - Corsair Vengeance 32GB DDR4 - White LED

SSDs - Corsair Force Series LE 240GB

PSU - Corsair HXi 750W

 

Cooling - Custom water cooling

 

 

Pics will be coming soon!!! I can't wait to complete this project and see what other modders are doing to this case!!

Time for this build to begin!!

 

Within the game, Rainbow Six: Siege, there is a drone that the attackers can use to scout for intel of the enemies' location on the map. Once, the enemy was located, the attacker would hide their drone in various manners to be used latter on in the match. Below is a concept art of what the drone initially looked like before the final version of the drone appeared in the game.

Using this image and in-game still that I have from my own gameplay, I shall re-create the drone and have it "hide" in the computer as a reservoir. So I set out to my local hobby store and got some off-road RC truck tires and fitted them onto my reservoir that I will be using in this build.

Time for some updates!!

 

Before I did the complete disassembly of the case, I had to take some measurements to create the psu shroud and the front area for what I had to do.

 

http://i.imgur.com/N7S0V2Ml.jpg

 

I did mock up the PSU shroud with some posterboard that I have to make sure everything fits properly.

Once I was happy with the mock up job I did based on my measurements. I took to sketchup to 3d model the measurements for future purposes.

Will you have to replace the controller built into the case to hook up to an Hd120 controller?

I'm modding this case as well just hoping that all I need for hd120's is the controller kit plus my 3 extra.

 

I will have to replace the controller. That is why I got he 3 pack of HD120s with the controller for the HD fans

Time for the paint!!!

http://i.imgur.com/1rJlCuMl.jpg

 

I will be using some Dupicolor automotive paint

 

http://i.imgur.com/sf4H8s0l.jpg

 

Overall it turned out pretty good! Started with gunmetal with light flakes then did "see-through" shadow then topped it with a clear coat. It gives it a gun metal powder coated look

 

http://i.imgur.com/rrrmS0wl.jpg

 

Also I have received some my shipment of parts that I ordered!!!

I finished up painting some additional pieces. Painted the mounts for the glass along with the heat spreaders for the RAM.

Also I was able to get a very nice motherboard and processor for this build!!

With the TUF thermal armor, I decided to take it off and paint it to match the case along with doing some touch up on the case itself.

Next time...some clay sculpting?!?!

Time to assemble the major components together!!

I love how the paint job on the heat spreaders for the fan turned out!

Time for some cable management on the backside of the case. Along with mounting the Corsair Link and RGB controllers for the fans.

Testing fitment of the reservoir with a mock up psu shroud. Additionally, I added cable combs to the front.

As I teased a bit earlier in the thread, I did some clay modeling with the reservoir!!

 

I started with this picture as a reference.

 

http://i.imgur.com/NYAsAzdl.jpg

 

From here I went and added clay all around the reservoir itself. Made a nice thick layer to carve all the excess and details from.

 

http://i.imgur.com/K0x36lXl.jpg

 

From there I carved the excess while streaming on Twitch as a way to involve those that wanted to learn more about modding and building computers.

 

http://i.imgur.com/g4Bfr6vl.jpg

 

After a couple of hours of carving I was able to get the basic shape.

 

http://i.imgur.com/sVTWDHwl.jpg

 

 

From there I went to go spray paint it into a gunmetal with some black gloss. Once that was done I clear coated it and let it cure. Later this week I will go back with some fine paint brushes to add more detail on the drone.

 

http://i.imgur.com/wkKMRKll.jpg

 

Additionally, not pictured was that I took some 2 way mirror acrylic and cut them down to size for the front panel. I plan on doing something a bit different with the front panel.

A quick update. Finally settled on the color I wanted for the drone reservoir. It took me 2 weeks and multiple different colors of silver and grey, but I am pleased with what I have done.

Additionally, I have received an ASUS 1060 for this build.

Would you mind sharing the measurements for your custom shroud? The well being of all 570x builders is depending on it! Your progress is terrific by the way!

Hello everyone!! There is going to be a lot of updates in the next few days!! I plan on finishing this build up just in time for Dreamhack Austin.

 

To start off, the PSU cover!! I worked in conjunction with my friend at Clockwerk Industries on the design and size of the PSU cover. Once I received the cover, I added some pass through ports to make it ready for the tubing layout.

Then I went to go get some vinyl made for the glass panels. Time for the logos!!

Huge shoutout to Joe from Senpai Studios for taking the time to teach me how to sleeve cables! I would have not been able to do this without his guidance.

 

I spent the day doing some sleeving for the build. I went with OD green and Desert Tan Camo for the colors to represent the armed forces that are apart of Rainbow Six

Once I finished the first terminations, I connected them to the correct ports on the mother board and GPU to make sure that they fit properly and let them relax into the position they will be in once everything is assembled.

Additionally, I cut a piece of acrylic to mount the Pro Controller and the LED controllers for the fans and gave them a nice clean look. Thanks to Joe from Senpai Studios with the help of shortening the cables runs on the controllers.

Completed the termination of the sleeved cables and routed them to the correct locations.
