Most critical part, getting the mobo offset mounts in the right spot so the i/o shield lines up with the ports and the video card is snug against the i/o panel





Testin to see what works best for screwing in the mobo offsets, 3mm drill hole with a touch of 3.5mm at the start seems to work well



Momentary toggle switch and push button switch, ill use the toggle at the front of the case for the power. Dunno about using the push button for reset, for a start it dosnt really fit anywhere at the front so will have to be at the back. I havnt had a reset button for 2 years and havnt really missed it




This is the part ive been looking forward to, dissemble, clean, get the paper off ready for final assemble



All ready for tomorrow

you know the ONLY problem with this case....

Thanks guys


Putting this bitch together




Forgot a few fastener holes




All panels except clear panel fastened.




Window not fastened but just put it in place to see how its going, so far so good, i did actually fasten it earlier but didnt take a pic, with it on the case is very rigid which is good




Pwr sw installed, has a really solid satisfying action/feel to it. Only feasible place it would fit on the front

Front mount heat exchanger assemble and install



60mm thick 9FPI rad, this thing cooled my previous rig, overclocked 980ti and 4690k + full mobo cover block with ease with fans at ~900rpm




Chrome fan grills, zinc coated m4 bolts from bunnings, Enermax TB Vegas fans, i picked those fans up for $14, they seem to be $40-50 each now So this case is going to have $400 worth of fans




Cutting the bolts to correct length cause of rad




Heat exchanger setup installed, anti-front mount intake rad SJWs are weeping




Cable nightmare, they are definitely going to be hidden away in pipes



Idea of the space


Pretty happy with how its looking so far

Putting this on ice till late July when i return from holiday in Whoreland





General water pipe layout, not so keen on acrylic, petg pipe now, will prolly go chrome/silver shining or true brass/gold plated brass 12/10mm with a balanced mix of gentle bends and using fittings for tight bends.
I generally dont like the look of most 90 degree or greater metal pipe bends in WC projects and personally not a fan of the copper look.
Anyway, something to research while im away


BP True brass fittings, they dont seem to make matching pipe though
This colour would really stand out in the tint and chrome theme the case has



Silver/chrome and fittings look




Then there is the cable solution, im thinking black chrome various sized pipe from a hobby supply shop or something to make them blend into the background layer

Z, not X. No AMD trolls in my thread lol


edit: just read ROG Impact series is EOL so i have the last one made, the VIII Z170, so i can slap a 7700K in that and be happy for a few years, i have CL14 3200 ram in it too and BP makes a nice semi-full cover block for it. The big downside of this board and probably what accelerated it's demise is there is no m.2 SSD support
