Description

Build theme maleficent.

long time coming. took months of work. had to replace all the LED's on the built on fan controller, custom PSU cover, custom window, custom hard drive mounts, custom internal case back cover. custom individual sleeved wires.

this build cam out way better than the origonal design. alot of testing and tinkering to get it to the point its at now. still need some decals. the photos speak for themselves. Enjoy!

this was a commission build for a customer (close friend) not going to blast my business here but feel free to request a link.

That is one sexy build, good job with the cables and making it look all around sexy. +1

Side note- How in the world did you get the hard drives to be held like that? And the neon green looks great as the trim lighting. Well done.

That customer is going to be one happy man. I guess my only question here is why no use of SSD - But I'm sure there's a reason, and a good one. Beautiful build.

woman, and we decided for the build to use physical drives to get more storage out of RAID. it was a customer choice and saved her alittle bit of $$$ one of the few corners cut.

Nice build. It looks completely awesome! I was just wondering though, how do you individually sleeve cables like that, without heat shrinks or anything?

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

the secret is its para-cord. so it melts really nicely to the molex pins in the 24pin power boot. check youtube. its a great modders resource. I also will do commission sleeving for a modest fee. my website is in a comment above.

So far I do all my own work but I'm open to learning from the pros! I'm currently doing my own cable sleeving with parts from Lutro0 customs.

Lutro0 has some really nice sleeves. they are nice and ridged too. i like them but i like the paracord as there are alot of nice choices too. its a personal preference in the end.

awesome build! i wish i knew how to make modded side panel so i can put a window panel on my nzxt phantom! even though i have the nzxt window panel but still not big enough to see the whole inside

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

its not the easiest thing in the world but its not super hard either. the rubber U channel trim i had to FIND and order. that was probably the trickiest part. other than that the right tools help alot. jigsaw with metal blade. dremmel. and some nice metal files are your biggest friends. 20lb 3M double sided tape is your other. plexiglass is easy. lowes or any hardware store sells it.

  • 69 months ago

Where did you find the U channel rubber trim? I'm looking into creating a window the trim you have there looks perfect.

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

side windows arent hard if you have the right tools. just make sure your lines are nice and straight or smooth. the metal files help with the burrs. also a nice straight thick piece of steel can help straight lines when using a rotary tool.

Very nice and distinctive. I love those slanted hard drives along with the special colored cables. Remember when you could have any case you wanted as long as it was beige and windowless? :) The "need for speed" is always behind every build but so is the appearance of the vehicle. Great job.

looking niiiiice. how's that window panel for noise and vibration, compared to the original panel?

  • 69 months ago
  • 2 points

no additonal noise or vibration that we can determine. the rubber gromit for the window and the 3M tape ensure a tight fit

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

sweet, i'm thinking about the window panel for my H630 build plus a custom frosted acrylic panel to diffuse the light from an NZXT Hue based roughly on the tests here. noise is my biggest worry with this change though.

looking at this now i'm tempted to make the whole thing a fat light box haha

  • 69 months ago
  • 1 point

looks awesome. i just took a piece of plexi and sanded it with some medium grit sand paper to get an even ruffness. edge light it from far away and has a nice result (back side pannel probably not in photos)

just make sure everything is secure and the noise should be little to none send me a link so i can see your work. i look forward to it bishopcomputerdesign@gmail.com

Hi! I really like your colour scheme! I am only 15, no job, and I'm investing in a build. I was going for the same case, and needed some help with the fans. I don't know how many I'll need, I was planning on going with the idea of green led fans to match my other accessories. How many fans will I need? Also, what fans should I use? Also how do I change the fan controller colors? Here's my part list I'll be putting together http://pcpartpicker.com/user/trains/saved/4FWf

  • 67 months ago
  • 1 point

changing the fan controller colors isn't for the faint of heart. it requires removing the led's solder and soldering new led's on. not recommended for anyone who doesn't have experience in such things. as for the fans any fan with a high CFM and low noise or DB are great. i happened to choose the NZXT fans to go with the NZXT build. but any will do. and i would use at least 4 fans for the inside. its a very big case.

if you could give a rating for the amount your room lights up with those fans the green ones what would you rate it 1-10

  • 66 months ago

they aren't that bad so probably 5-6

Ok tnx but do u know one that might be 9-10

for ridiculously bright ones your looking at dedicated case lighting. fans only will give you a nice glow nothing too bright.

I am interested in that wireless adapter. Is it any good? Like, what would you say it's range is?

  • 64 months ago
  • 1 point

I couldn't give you any really good information on that but i do know that when i was building the system it worked through walls from about 30ft away. which is better than some adapters ive used in the same environment. If i had to rate it i would say it was slightly above average and good value for the money. but i'd recommend a usb extension cable as it has an internal antenna and getting the best reception may require elevating the device to capture a better single.
