Final: "CHIMAERA" by Zoyadog

Greetings!

My name is Frida, also known as Zoyadog, and welcome to my first buildlog here.
I got my interest in computers and modding for about one year ago and here is my second, but my first serious, project.

So here is the story, I have always been in love with the Silverstone TJ07 and all its functions.
I have been dreaming of creating a mod of that case for so long, and now was the time to fulfill my dream.
But things changed. I never managed to get a hold of a TJ07 unfortunately, so I bought a second-hand Obsidian 800D instead.
It wasn't really what I expected and I had no idea how to make this build with the unexpected case.
But then the idea finally struck me; Why not combine the both cases, 800D and TJ07?

I am not sure if I can call it an 800D or a TJ07 anymore, basically the whole interior of the case is now custom built.

Hardware list:
Intel i7 3930k
GIGABYTE GA x79 UD3
GTX 680 2GB SLI
Team Xtreem 2x4GB 2133Mhz CL11
x2 Intel SSD 520 240GB
Samsung SSD EVO 830 120GB
Silverstone ST1000-P

I want to thank my sponsors for making this project come to reality.

So basically there is nothing left of the 800D, I am going to keep the front side and the bottom. The rest will be custom made.

The body has been replaced with aluminium L-profiles. The second-hand 800D I bought was in pretty good condition, except for the 480 radiator cut in the top.
Luckily I will replace that.

I've made a body for the case with aluminium L-profiles, similar to the TJ07, so I can fit the same parts in the 800D as I would do in a TJ07 case.
I've also made a radiator-holder out of a fan grill and some spare aluminium parts, so I could see if it can fit a 480 radiator in the future.

I love the stickers on my Team Xtreem 2x4GB 2133Mhz CL11, they are shifting in different colours and will fit my colour-scheme so well.
Thank you Team Group and Rotakorn.

Thanks GIGABYTE for this beautiful GA x79 UD3, this one will be powering my i7 3930k.

Bits and pieces on place!
All the TJ07 trays and plates were fitting perfectly. I made a first attempt to bend a plexi wall also, it wasn't the easiest part.
But with a little extra work on it, it will probably be just fine!

First of all, very welcome on ocaholic!

Tj07 "inside" a 800D, is a very cool idea! Since are very cool cases with a lot of features, I guess that you can create a "monster"

Hw parts are also good, 680SLI and 3930K..perfect match!

Thanks everyone
Im an old friend to Ocaholic, but for some reason I never registered on the forum lol.

New parts arrived!
I thank Coolingstuff.se for the great service and cooperation with my project.

Small teasers on the GPU-blocks for the 680's from Aquacomputer.
I also received the radiator, pump, fans and some other accessories. Had to return the pump top for the D5 tho due to a small error on it.

Today I went shopping for more materials and tools so I can continue working with the case.
See you in the next update!
Tonight I am going to take some more pictures on my new water cooling gear.

The body of the case will be in the original colour, Im not going to paint the "frame".
So it will be silver-coloured. It will match with the Airplex Radiator, EK supremacy full nickel cpu-block and the GPU blocks.
The trays, middle wall, mid plate and other acrylic will be matte-black. Sleeving will be light grey/violet/titanium grey.
Fluid is going to be purple aswell with a transparent loop.
I am going to figure out something to do with the heatsinks on the motherboard also
