Hello there (General Kenobi)

 

Here is my new mod based on a In Win Chopin, quite simple, a mix of wood and aluminium.

 

This is the hardware :

(sorry for bad quality MDPC X logo...)

 

AMD Ryzen 3 2200g

Asrock AB350 mini ITX

In Win Chopin argent

Corsair Dominator 2*4Go

Samsung 750 SSD M.2 250Go

Noctua NH-L9x65

 

For the modding part i have :

 

Lamptron modding tool for cables

MDPC-X Titanium grey

Wooden covering

 

I'm going to :

sleeve the PSU

place covering

disembowel the case to be able to put the M.2 SSD and his cooling from Hybrid Cooling

remove/hide the red on the MB

change the panels of the case, hardware do not fit in the case on purpose

 

Here is a big spoiler :

I'll go more into detail in the next weeks.

Hello,

 

Today i'll sho you the ork done on the MB to match the color theme.

 

First, how the board look like :

It's too red, so the first thing as to remove anodisation from rads with a sandblaster, here is the re**** :

Then, i mount CPU, rad and RAM, and 3Dprinted a piece to hide the red on the RAM slots :

Today i'll show you the job done on the case.

 

First, i would like to say this case is really good, for a simple build you will have enought place to do the job easily. But this is not really a standard build, so i removed some parts on the case :

A big hole under the MB, to be able to mount M.2 SSD + dissipator

Bigger hole for cable management on the front.

 

Then i glued aluminium part for a clear look on the edge, in the back of the MB the aluminium plate has a hole to show the M.2 radiator.

I also made a PSU cover (with wood covering already on it) and a plate ot hide i/O back panel.

Last thing i've done is a 3D printed plate to replace the upper grid, and a "logo" for the front :

It was printed in red, i painted it and then put the covering and cutted what should be cutted

Hello,

 

I planed to sleeve my first PSU with this mod, i really enjoyed it.

 

I won't really describe how to sleeve, there is a LOT of tutorials well done.

 

Here is the result on the 24 pins :

For the CPU 8 pins it was a bit more tricky since the cable look like that :

I wanted to have 8 wires coming instead of four. So i cutted, and soldered new wires to get something nicer :

Hello,

 

After those steps i put the wood covering on most of the parts of the case :

I also replaced the original fan from the CPU cooler by two 40mm.

 

To fix them, i bended an aluminium plate to the good size (and i put covering on it), so the fan just hold in place :

I also bend the bottom of the aluminium so the whole thing clamp the radiator.

So in place it looks like :

Next time, the two panels and the result, but not the final shooting!

Hello,

 

Here is the job done one the side panel of the case.

 

On the hardware side i create the panel from acrylic sheet and some pieces of aluminium :

I glued aluminium spacers on the case to fix it :

For the other side i just cutted the panel and fixed an acrylic sheet with double sided tape :

And now just more pictures, the case will be used horizontally but can be use in both way :
