Good looking board! I have been fond of gigabyte SB/IB boards, I have a Z68X and a P67A board :)
Its indeed a very good looking bord. I got a P67 UD5 in my pc and I am very happy with it.:D

This build is taking a minute. If motivation is a problem, you have plenty of people watching and waiting from TPU.

Great build, can't wait for more.
Idd but there is no need to rush it. I mostly work on the pc when I am in the mood for it. :p
In the summer I was a lot out so with the winter incomming U can be sure that there will be more updates comming.
Very high quality work!
Thank U :D

Small sneak peak

Have bin working on the last part for the side panel. The piece U will see is just a try out. But I need to admit that it is looking great already.







Will make a short Video of how a made it.

Update!!

Last weekend I went to Pascal (Paslis) to get some freshly made parts for my project.



As U can see there are already cuts in the sheet of Aluminium. This was done with a cuttinglazer and will help me to create the air vents in the panel.





Started with making a negative mold for the vent. These pieces where made my lazercutting machine. But they still needed some work before it would be ready to use.
Had to file the shape of the Vent in to the piece. After that it needed some sanding to smooth the edges out.





Finished product. :p





The rest U will need to follow in these 2 video's I have made. This is the best way for me to show/explain how I made it.

Bel Air Side Louvres Creation Part 01 - YouTube
Bel Air Side Louvres Creation Part 02 - YouTube

After a hour of work U get this as end result.









I have also started to work on the top grill of the case. This part will need to get the same look as the front grill of the case.









To give U a Idea of how it will look like.





Just need to find a good way to attach it all.





That is it again, thank U for reading. :D

Continued the work on the side panel this week. All the pieces are finished for 1 panel I just need to put it together and finish it of.





Had a small issue with using different materials together. The place where the Aluminium and the plexi joins always cracked.



Got my Dremmel and started to cut the shape out. Filled it afterword with 2K Epoxy glue.



Again filling and sanding the panel till it all feels smooth.



Had to repeat the process several times over and over before I could spray some primer on it. With the panel in white I can easily spot the last errors in the panel and fix them.











As U can see there are still some spots that need some attention before the front of the panel is finished. After that I can continue to work on the other side of the panel. This side still need a lot of preparation before it is ready.

UPDATE !!!!

After a few months it was time to pick up this project and finish it!

I continued with the top grill of the case.





Cutting a Aluminum L profile in to pieces.



These pieces will hold the support for the aluminum bars of the grill



All in place. :D







Next step was to cut every single piece to the exact size. That it all nicely lines up together.













All pieces in place next up is sanding and polishing the pieces. But that is for next week.



Got some extra sanding paper its better to have some spare then to come short while u are busy. ^^

Update !!

Last week I received a lovely package from a new sponsor for this project!



Cooler Master support this project with one of there new PSU series V850 with thanks to Marco from Cooler Master!









Back to the mod. Started with removing all the extra mounting points from the Noctua fans that I wont need any more.























Added some new material to the build. The original idea was to use walnut wood but do the high price I used regular pinewood. Glued all the pieces together to create one part.









The idea is to do the same things in the case also and color it darker. To finish it I am going to use High gloss clear coat.

1 side panel is finished already.
