I never knew you guys had a section like this so here goes!

 

The Corsair case IMO is amazing, it just needs some slight changes (which you'll see later) I'm really diggin' the hot swap bays, that'll save so much fuss! :yepp: Anyways, time for my first package :D

 

Thanks to Vincent from Bitspower for making me the first person is AUS with these fittings (AFAIK) :D

 

Time for the gang!

Small update.

 

I got 3 1150rpm Gentle Typhoons + 3 Thermalright 140mm fans for the case. BOTH fans are completely silent unless I have my ear next to them (kids, don't try at home). Both are amazing fans, the quality of the thermalright's are great! They come pre-sleeved in some OK sleeving and with a black housing.

 

 

Thanks to John @ Jab-Tech for these, there was more in the order like fan pins etc... but you don't need to see them :)

Anyways! My MIPS package arrived! Let me say a BIG thanks to Michael who responded to every email in an instant and was a HUGE help! Thanks!

 

The products are amazing, I also asked them to included black screws but I'm liking the silver ones ATM. Sorry about the "dust" and "grime," it's a PITA to get rid of.

Today started off nicely, got some steel from my brother and begun! The one thing that really "grinds my gears" about the case is the rubber grommets, sure, they're great so all forms of motherboards can fit but IMO they look crap, rubber everywhere! ;) That can be fixed though, another thing is when the window is inplace, you can see half of the lower chamber (PSU) which looks fugly, not sure why they did that? Anyways, overall, the case is amazing, really good quality and my favourite feature has to be the hot swappable bays, I don't really know why I love them but for some reason, they're sweet.

 

Enough talk! This is where I started.

And this is where I finished, I still need to cut the CPU are out, cut some holes for the cables to pass through and make the hole on the bottom left of the bottom plate bigger so the case rivet doesn't push the plate inwards. These ofcourse will be powdercoated!

More soon ya'll. Needa finish cutting the steel then I can get it powdercoated/do mock up's.

 

Sorry I haven't had an update in a while, been pretty busy! Anyway, today I finally got to do a mockup of my plans in my head, it turned out exactly how I wanted, if not, better. Next to the motherboard will be an Iandh reservoir as soon as the arrive in Australia (2 weeks) with green coolant, you should be catching my theme now. I've had a heap of fun fabricating all my own bits, it so enjoyable, they'll go off to the powdercoaters to come back all dressed up as soon as I cut the SATA holes (You can probably see my very dodgy line)

 

I really feel like this is starting to take off now, I'm finally getting a replacement for my dead PSU which is great news for me!

 

PICHASSSS
