Welcome to my project named Elegance.

This is a personal project which will be used as a light gaming/HTPC in the living room. With this PC I plan on introducing some games to my wife, and hope to spark up an interest in co-op gaming. There is a strong focus on design with this project as there is not alot of space to work with. I plan on focusing on extremely clean cables, a sleek industrial interior and improving the ventilation to the Graphics card. This project is named Elegance as I want this project to have a

This project will consist of the following hardware:
CPU: Intel Pentium 20th Anniversary Edition G3258
CPU cooler: Cryorig C7
Motherboard: Gigabyte Z87N-Wifi
GPU: EVGA GTX750Ti 2GB ITX
PSU: SilverStone SX600-G
SSD: OCZ ARC100 240GB
RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum 8GB 1866mhz
Chassis: Raijintek Metis Silver - Windowed

The mods that will happen:
This project will have my custom signature inside paneling with a brushed finish. These panels will cover and streamline the inside of the chassis, and various components.
I will reverse the reverse layout, so that the chassis' motherboard orientation will be as a standard chassis. This is for 2 reasons: 1. No one has done it before and 2. To improve and supply airflow to the graphics card.
Create an IO shield and Wifi card panel on the motherboard
Maybe install watercooling loop.

Final words..
So with this all said and done, let's get on with the project shall we?

Kind regards,
Justin "MetallicAcid" Ohlsen

Update 1

Chassis photoshoot and inverting the inverted orientation.



Upon closer inspection of this lovely chassis, I noticed this chassis has a very simplified construction, which is using only screws. I also noticed that the chassis sides can be mirrored in a way that I can reverse the motherboard orientation with almost no modding! So I went ahead and reversed it

Let's start with the chassis photoshoot, and some playing around:

After flipping the motherboard like this, I noticed that I just needed to drill and tap 2 M4 screw holes. So I went ahead with this mod:

This is an awesome and easy mod that almost anyone can do. This is also a great way to fix the thermals of any GPU which is used as it will be able to draw in fresh air from under the chassis, where the HDD/SSD holes are. If you want maximum airflow, you can always pull out your trusty Dremel and get to cutting. Just think about a dust filter and you will be fine Remember that this chassis is aluminium, and SilverStone's magnetic dust filters will not work..

I really hope you have enjoyed this mod, and might want to try the same thing yourself

Kind regards,

Hey guys and girls!!

I would like to continue this build log with showing most of the parts which I have collected so far, with the rest pf them shown later on. This project would probably not have happened without the help of my sponsors Inet, Gigabyte, OCZ, SilverStone, Cryorig and Raijintek, so thank you once again! Intermittent updates will appear with these parts over the next few days, then we get to the nitty gritty action!
