Hello Guys! Paultan here designer and builder of:
Reventon MKII PC (http://www.million-dollar-pc.com/systems-2011/reventon-mk2/039.htm)

Nike Advance PC (http://www.bit-tech.net/modding/2011/12/23/mod-of-the-year-2011/10)

I just want to share you guys what I'm currently workig on. And since I'm using a Asus items again, I think it's pretty nice to share it here :)

First of all, I would like to thank CoolerMaster for giving me he full support and mostly for giving me one of the first Cosmos II. They sent it to me last year 2011 November but because of the NDA I kept it as a secret. Thank you also CoolerMaster for giving me cool items! I love the Turbine Master Fans! and the Hybrid 1030w PSU :)

Secondly, I would like to thank Corsair also for giving me the support when it comes to PSU, Memory Kits, SSDs, and CPU and memory Cooler. They gave me a lot. Never expected it :) It's really nice.

Lastly, Thanks Asus! ASUS ROG and Asus Philippines. For giving me the Asus Sabertooth 990FX and 3x Asus HD 6970 DCUII :)

Thanking everyone for all of the gifts you gave me. That's why I'm returning the favor to you by doing this

enjoy!

Here's what my initial plan of what I intend to achieve. But I think it still needs more details :)

And here are some of the crazy features that my Dark Knight will have :)

http://sphotos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/426498_10150600701038424_793966236_n.jpg

converting the motherboard tray into 90deg tray
and reversed mounted GPUs :)


Will discuss more about this as I progress :) That's all for now.

Since when I started this mod project, I was still contacting Asus to assist me. So while waiting, I started modding the Cosmos 2 by rotating it's motherboard tray by 90degrees angle. :)

here my good friend tantric helped me to cut the thick metal of the case itself :) weewww!

Now I tested the mounting the rads of the H100 underneath the mobo tray.

I like how it looks :)

Now for the Motherboard! Kids, don't try this at home :) try it outside hehe

Seriously, do it with precautions. Painting the board is not easy, you have test everything first and mask every important part of the board :)

About the painting

1. I'm scared, so scared that If I screw up, Asus will hate me. haha
2. I'm trilled, because I have the guts not to cover the dram slots and pci-e slots :)
3. Reason for no covering the slots, simple: I want everything black. :)

Let's start!

The looks are really nice. Fine details will come out of this build. Like the whole "Dark Knight" theme. But coloring your Motherboard? I hope it will run. It looks nice! Wich paint did you use for the motherboard?

Love the MDPC-X sleeving. I buy it only for the cartoons he's drawing ;) lol
I will follow it, see how it ends :) keep up the good work!

THanks. Sa casing, lahat naman ata ng case may advantage at disadvantage. so I guess you just have to pick yung san ka comfortable tingnan at depende sa taste mo sa design ng casing. try to look for CM or Corsair cases. Most of the Mid-full tower supported niyan dual rad para kasya h100 mo. sa gpu. walang magandang gpu for me. kasi after ng 8months luma na ulit yan. so depende lang lagi yan sa budget mo kung nagtitipid ka ba o gagastos ka talaga. nvidia kung gusto mo ng phsyx para sa games mo at good driver support. AMD naman kung gusto mo na mura kahit paano, pero at the same time hindi masyado mahal.

paultan
09-03-2012, 04:41 PM
Sir if youre going to put it on RAD. use SP, if youre going to use the fan for airflow inside the case such intakes or exhaust use AF.

so in your case, use SP for your rads. if you want quietness, go for silent. but if you want full performance cooling, then go for high performance.

a short recap of the build log :)

Hello everyone, some of you maybe familiar with me and to this build. It's already done after a year. Finally! But I want to share to you some quick worklog for this build. So you'll have a better idea how I made the Dark Knight PC.

I started last year when I got one of the first batch of the COSMOS II last October 2011 but actually started posting on January 2012.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-b-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/321250_10150373898698424_1132080211_n.jpg

after that, I suddenly had the Idea to remove the handle bars to make it more sexier.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/395523_10150462562578424_1936085922_n.jpg

and the Idea came out. (early photoshop concept art)

https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc1/381421_10150463350213424_585875877_n.jpg

after a while. The Dark Knight idea grew in me.

Now let's head on to converting this case to 90 deg rotated mobo tray.

First is to cut a big hole on the top and test where to actually set the mounting for motherboard.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-a-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash4/383654_10150482557448424_411014408_n.jpg

ooking good. now let's try to mod the motherboard itself.
since it will be "Dark Knight" it will be a requirement to use all black parts as possible and to achieve that I really wanted to try to paint the motherboard to see if it's really possible.

i used an asus Sabertooth 990FX board for this build since it will be my PC for work.

looks succesful but the sidepanels aren't friendly

so I decided to make my own sidepanel but making it from acryllic

now for the front panel

I had to do it more than 3 designs and apply it on the front panel over and over just to get what really satisfy my taste.

looks like an ironman case. not good.

2nd attempt. fail again.
