Got it put together and sent . . .a company is going to provide me with four 680s - not sure about timing hopefully by the time I get the case back but could be a little longer. Researching hard-pipe bending now. This is an amazing case . . .

this is a workup of the art but it will not have the Kerrigan from Heart of the Swarm on the side - the case has been shipped to Steve Nunez for painting

This looks like one sick build! I cant wait to follow along as you build this (moar pictures!)

Other than quad 680's, what other hardware are you going to fill this case with?

still working on partnerships but hopefully ASUS Rampage IV Extreme, either Crucial SSDS and ram, or perhaps 64 gigs of Corsair Dominator RAM and some of their SSDS, Two Feser 480 radiators, maybe 18 two terabyte HDDS or so.

Nice work Darth you do some great mods. I am however new to this forum and pc modding as well lol .
But I do have a strong background in custom fab work. mostly show winning cars and bikes.
I am looking forward to seeing the finished job on the hard lines that would be sick in a steam punk theme pc case.
A little tip on bending the lines- If you add some heat the pipes will bend easy. also copper will polish up very nice without to much effort.

DarthBeavis
05-27-2012, 08:50 PM
thanks for the tips! I am going to make a bending station using a vice and extending the tool handles with pipes for better leverage.

Adamfal

That should workout nicely. Just take it slow with your bends and apply constant pressure and you will end up with some nice tight radius bends without any kinks.

Installed Corsair SP 120 fans. They are 1450 RPM, 23 dBA, are classified as low noise high static pressure fans designed for radiator usage. They come with blue, white, and red highlight pieces. The rads I used are Black Ice SR 1 480s.

Have to order different rad screws as the case panels will not fit on over these (will order button head with Phillips slot from McMasters today).

Have to take everyone out of the case so I can air-brush the inside of the main compartment.
