    and it looks nice.

    So here i will present my buildlog of my setup i'm buildling right now (already 6months working on it)

    Hope you enjoy the pics and maybe get some idea's to, to make some nice things for your rigs.

    i found my case a little boring, so dicided to make it a little more nicer

    i working now for some time already on my case mod,

    This build is made possible by and thanks to Aquatuning

    And this is how it going to fit in black and red on the Chiller :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Mounting for the Boreas Chiller made, was first the HDD trays.
    Now made mat black acryl with behind the mounting plates for the boreas chiller.
    And still need to finish it nice off and put holes for the cables of the boreas :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    this is the difference of size between my old skulltrail (intel skulltrail D5400XS) and my current new one SR-2 5520 :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now i made new holes for the motherboard spacers, and put tread in it for the spacers :
    All nessesairy screws of the motherboard just fit nicely on the tray :
    now only need the dangerden 10 PciE slot IO-shield :

    [​IMG]

    And changing the backplates to for the Koolanc 360 blocks on cpu's :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here's the 3d fan grill in primer with the adjustments for a little more airflow, ready to sand again :

    [​IMG]

    the mounting for the Boreas chiller is ready exept for the holes to put the wires and tubing tru :

    [​IMG]

    fan grill got it first paint job , is get dry now :

    [​IMG]

    and the front plate for the drive bays has a primer :

    [​IMG]

    and first paint job in mat black (just fresh, needs to dry) :

    [​IMG]

    Little update,

    Coolit Freezone Elite is ready to and cpu's are on the mobo ,

    And here are some pics of the total view :

    [​IMG]

    Two Koolance 360 rev1.1 , and Koolance SR-2 Classified full cover block are arrived :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    after received it, let's open up the full cover block SR-2 and change it a little bit :

    [​IMG]

    a lot of sanding it to get the nickel of it, and then the first layer of primer :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    first layer mat black is on, tomorrow sanding it and paint it the last time for finishing touch,
    after when it's dry mount the block again and put it on the motherboard :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    SR-2 full cover block is ready and mounted :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    from this :

    [​IMG]

    i made these, and a little bit more, only waiting for a new shipment of red connectors :

    [​IMG]

    The other cpu his power cable is also done, and the PciE cable also :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Total overview of the powercables on the motherboard, the green circle is where the cables leave the case to the other side for connection to the powersupply :

    [​IMG]

    i used these ones :

    [​IMG]

    And cut them smaller :

    [​IMG]

    And use heatshrink to make the Black line on it :

    [​IMG]

    new parts in :

    Evga SR-2 1200w (peakload 1700w) psu

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    PciE connector for GPU's with a 2200UF (MicroFarad) condensator and ferrit-cores :

    [​IMG]

    Cpu ATX power connectors, also with 2200UF (microFarad) Condensator and ferrit-cores :

    [​IMG]

    and te best part of the power supply is on the back of it lol :

    [​IMG]

    Also LGA1156 socket isolation and new inox Backplates for my SR-2 :

    [​IMG]

    also i got two red displays in for on my controller.
    To swat the green light lcd out for a red symbol / black background display :

    [​IMG]

    take a HB624 controller with ALMEGA88V chip :

    [​IMG]

    put some cables and a pot meter on it :

    [​IMG]

    with the pot meter 10K i can adkust the screen light :

    To see real time the 12v rail of the SR-2 powersupply, and monitore the power drawn of the three coolit coolers :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    cpu disable jumpers soldered for make the connector for it in front of the case :

    [​IMG]

    need to cut new Socket isolation because SR-2 has no big condensators next to the sockets, so i can use some more isolation : :

    [​IMG]

    putted also three temp sensors under the full cover blok, to measure the CPU PWM 1 en 2 and the NB temp
    with a Koolanc TMS-200 controller :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    total overview of the mobo in current state:

    [​IMG]

    little testing en measurement, the boreas chiller and the freezone will be hanged on the power use controller.
    [​IMG]

    but a lot of cables here that needs to be in the case fitted.

    [​IMG]

    Alu plaat of 1.5mm is in, tomorrow making the adjustment of the mobo cover :

    [​IMG]

    Today being busy with making place for all the usb cables, power led, hdd led etc to go away from mobo as fast as possible, not to show to much cables in case.
    Also adjusting some things to get the mobo cover enlargement fitted on case,
    used a lot of dremel cutting disks :

    [​IMG]

    And because the Evga SR-2 mobo doesn't have condensators like a normal LGA1366 mobo around the socket, i needed to make some new socket isolation kits for around cpu with more amramflex, pictures will say enough :

    [​IMG]

    And here you see the normal cut-out of a lga1366 socket kit and that for a Evga SR-2 mobo :

    bended the alu plate in the same curve as the standard mobo cover also have :

    [​IMG]

    The curve in the red circle, the green lines is untill where the mobo cover needs to get bigger for the bigger mobo :

    [​IMG]

    sorry about the quality of pics :

    The original mobo cover has a serious cut-out for the adjustment,
    and you see the four square holes for mounting the new alu plate :

    [​IMG]

    This is the bottom of the original mobo cover, is a serious cut-out on,
    so Quad sli GTX480 still fitts :

    [​IMG]

    The new alu plate working on :

    [​IMG]

    And here it's fitted on the case base plate :

    [​IMG]

    Nice fit :

    [​IMG]

    And with the base plate of the big Boreas Chiller,
    you see that the ATX 24pin needs a cut-out, and two tubing with a BP fitting,
    also the Coolit Freezone V1 needs his place in this plate :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And here you see what also needs to be cutt-out in alu plate :

    [​IMG]

    also with very small iron files i have to make the honey roster on another place :

    [​IMG]

    Update after some hours work :

    the BP fittings are in place also the cutt-out for the ATX 24pin :

    [​IMG]

    BP fittings close-up :

    [​IMG]

    The outcome of the atx24pin :

    busy on fitting the Coolit Freezone V1 under the mobo cover :

    [​IMG]

    And making by hand the honey roster like the original was a never ending thing, and was not nice,
    so i will make another solution as roster to protect the fan :

    [​IMG]

    Working on the case again al day, bend the alu plate, making some acryl ready,
    the extra piece of hight is for the cpu power cables of the left cpu :

    [​IMG]

    With the cooler on his place :

    [​IMG]

    With the red acryl on his place also for the enlargement of the mobo cover :

    [​IMG]

    And then as last also grey smoke like on the cpu cooler left en on the vga's, is for breading room :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    here are some new pics, with a little modification on case, and did some fine work :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    But now you got an idea how i will do it :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    this is what i did today :


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Now it's good visible what i whanted to do with the case to fit the bigger mobo SR-2 in this case (normally no fit lol)

    Sorry for the bad pics, not enough light but i whanted to show you guys already what i did today :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here are some better pics in daylight.

    I didn't close the cover good, it's not that it has a space between it lol.

    The parts have now there first primer coating :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    And here the first parts in primer, i sprayed it very thick,
    because i nedd to get al the tiny flows sanded out of it, but will get more layers :

    the alu plate for the mobo cover is painted and mounted, here some pics of it :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    damn, i got a mosquito in my fresh paint on the big alu plate :blush:,
    sanding it and paint again .

    Or i can use it as a new kind of fan, special airflow lol :rofl:


    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    putting the isolation on the backplates of mobo, with the inox backplates :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And this is how the case is on this moment, also fitted a 16x2 red/black lcd above the Boreas chiller.
    Also you see now how hidden the ATX24pin really is, pure cable management with the 90° connectors :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Total overview of the case how he's now.
    Most of the cables are on/in it : audio, usb, powerswitch, hdd led, power led, reset, reset led, debug lcd, 2 sata, all atx and pci kabels.

    Evga PSU is also on his place together with the dual bay psu in front :

    [​IMG]

    overview of mobo with all cables on it :

    [​IMG]

    Also i have made a cable for the EVbot connection in the mobo IO-Shield, so the connection will be in the front plate, where it's easier to acces to hook up the EVbot :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Total overview of the current cables in the case lols,
    but they are not all the cables yet, and need also some controllers to put there
    (coolit, koolance, poweruse) :

    [​IMG]

    New Armaflex lasercutted is in, and fits the SR-2 with waterblock perfectly :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here are some pics with all coolers on there place, now you see also why i make the 90° connectors on the mobo :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Here you see, with fittings and all, i calculated just enough space for cpu block etc :

    [​IMG]


    and this is why i made those 90° connectors, so maximum on cable management :

    [​IMG]

    next layer of armaflex :

    [​IMG]

    Cut-out for the waterblock :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    And also soldering some SMD-led's for in the case,
    when you solder these smd-led's be shure you use Kynar whire, THE wire for working with SMD's :

    [​IMG]

    And putting the smd-led's on place with double component epoxy :

    [​IMG]

    Just like i put 320 smd-led's in previous casemod : Chiller's Evga Monsta :

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    I cut up an Evga ECP Panel for building it in the front of my case.
    little soldering, and i will have a EVbot connecting in front, a DEBUG lcd, Clear CMOS switch and switches for disable PciE and cpu's.

    This will be build in a Lian-Li slim-drive Bracket where together with a slot-in dvd drive also can go two SSD harddrives in it :
    i cut the ECP Panel up because you see always mods with just the ECP Panel screwed in the case, now i change this to my own taste.

    [​IMG]

    Here is the Lain-Li slim dvd drive bracket,
    (bought in usa)

    Here you see how i build in all the different switches, lcd en connectors, these will come behind a grey smoke acryl plate :

    [​IMG]

    Clear CMOS with his tiny hole :

    In the case it's still dark, but also on the graphics cards will come nice mods etc......:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    little update for tonight,

    the Evga ECP Panel of Classified mobo's, i cut it in pieces,

    [​IMG]

    And this is what i did with those pieces, i only whanted to use the Clear CMOS button and the debug lcd,
    also i enlarged the connectors in the IO-Shield of the Evga EVbot to the front plate for easy acces.
    There still needs to come a slim dvd drive slot-in and a grey smoke front plate :

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    backplates :
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    taken the front panel connector of my old intel skulltrail mobo (dremel in mobo)

    [​IMG]

    And used this connector in my slim drive bay of lian-li, together with the ECP panel i cutted up,
    so that i can hoop up the ECP panel cable of mobo in my dvd drive,and from here everything will be splitted to debug lcd, power and reset switches and cpu/PciE disabled switches

    [​IMG]

    and hhere you see it, connector for ECP panel connector that comes from mobo, and connector for power and reset switches :

    [​IMG]

    also the halve of the cables is managed, have some more cables to do and connectors to solder.
    Have also the Koolanc TMS-200 controller build-in the case and hooked up the first cables and sensors

    i'm still waiting on some small packages to arrive:

    Sata slim line dvd RW drive :
    [​IMG]

    Sata slim drive adapter to normal sata :

    [​IMG]

    adapter on it screwed :

    [​IMG]

    red smd-led strips for some light inside the case :

    [​IMG]

    3x Nexus air-beamers for 80/92mm fans, also here comes a nice mod with in the case,
    also some 3mm led's , 1 for the freezone V1 cooler, the other one is for in SB of Mobo full cover block instead of the stock blue led's :

    [​IMG]

    As you can see in 1 drive bay in my rig can hold more then 1 item , is multi functional :

    Debug lcd
    clear cmos
    EVbot connector
    disable cpu's/PciE's
    HDD for extra space
    and dvd drive itself

    [​IMG]

    little update, received my prize today, pics will say enough :

    One word:

    Fuck.


    Like how you went about mods totally differently. Not just a bloody tj07, wc it, neatencables and be done with it.

    Only thing I would be affraid of its troubleshooting everything if maybe one thing you soldered fails lol.


    Awesome build. Keep us posted.
