    Anniversary H-Tower

    Once again it´s time for a worklog. (And this will be our first Worklog on the Asus Forum)


    This time with a very special Case to start with. We´re really proud that we could get our hands on an In Win H-Tower Chassis.
    We fall in love with this Piece of Art on first sight, so we´re really happy to do a Project with one of those beauties.

    And because of the speciality of the Case we couldn´t hurt it that much. So this time we´re going to change only the Color of the Case from a Black/Red
    Color Combination to a White/Blue/Silver Paintjob. Beside that we´re going to make some smaller mods but that´s something you will see within this
    very short Log.


    So before we really start over with a few first pics of this Masterpiece, we want to thank all those great Guys & Girls at In Win, Asus, Klevv, Aquatuning,
    EK Waterblocks, Be Quiet , Createx & Iwata for all their help and their awesome Support!!!


    And here are already the Specs for this build:

    Specs:

    Case: In Win H-Tower

    Board: Asus Strix X99

    CPU: Intel Core i7 5960x

    GPU: 2 x Asus Strix GTX 1080

    RAM: 32 GB KLEVV CRAS

    SSD: 4 x Klevv 240 GB KLEVV URBANE U610

    PSU: Bequiet Dark Power Pro 11 - 1000 W




    And now a few pictures......

    Thank you !!! and the transformation process will start NOW



    Like you can imagine...before we could start the disassembling process of this beauty.....we had to press the magical buttons a few hundred times.....
    just to see how it unfolds


    But then there cames the moment when we had to start.....so we started from the Top working our Way down to the bottom of the Chassis.....

    The mechanism inside looks so scary. Wonder how you are going to mount everything back together! (small sticker on each part?? haha)
    And don't forget, Keep pushing it !

    yeah it looks scary but we took a few pics during the disassembly which will guide us through the most important steps...



    After disassembling all parts, we directly started to wet sand their surfaces so that we get rid of the structure from the original brushed surface....

    We also started to paint the first blue parts with the Paint Createx provided for this mod, but to finish them all will take some time because each part has to be painted 3 times (primer/silver/blue) to get the effect we wanted. Its hard to capture on pics but the final color looks nearly the same if they would be anodized in blue....

    As next we started the work on the watercooling reservoir. For that we took a big piece of 4 cm thick plexiglas and mounted on our cnc mill so that
    we could start the cutting process which took a little while....
