Hi !

Well, today I want to share with you the start of my first scratch build of my life.
I use to do modding for years now but this kind of modding is a real challenge for me because I always find it very difficult to do.
But here we go !

So, the goal here is to do something different from my other mods, something new but with the same spirit I love : modernity, class, high-end looking, and so on.

Unusually for me, this time I will also do a REAL worklog with photos of all the steps as you can see how I work on this project.

But hey, quit talking and go to the work !

(some sponsors are coming, but we will see that later ^^)

After that, it was time to do some plans on it for the futur cuts.

I decided to do some drill holes and cut some aluminum tubes : those tubes will assemble the 2 aluminum plates and this will be the "center" of the chassis.

This two plates will be the front and the rear of the "case".
I Just need to file a little bit, make some holes, do some new cuts and bend some parts ^^

Resized Image


Well, here is a "preview" of the look of the case but still need to do a LOT of work with this front and rear (hide the screws, slip in two the two plates, etc)

Well, I wasn't satisfied with the look of the case (too tall, not rather long) and today I decided to change this. So I cutted 3cm at the bottom and 3cm at the top. I also stretched out the frame with new sections of tube.
Last thing, I cutted in half the front and rear pannel to add some design.

Voila

And I've made a test with the 2 radiators :

After that, it was time to cut new piece of aluminum and bend some parts ^^

Here is the result : it's cover for radiators !

And update !

So, it's done for this side, just need to redo the same thing on the other side, damn... ^^
Res/pump fixed with some plates and the "gpu support" too
It starts to look fine to me !
(ALL the plates need to be more finished and I have to find the final screws for the entire case)

But after that, I was not happy with the last plate I've done : some cuts later, it's better
