Nighthawk Build



My entry in Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2018 #CMWS18 this time is a stealth build. NIGHTHAWK is a scratch build with a theme of the famous Stealth Fighter plane Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk.



Being a big fan of stealth fighter plans, my idea this time is to make a open frame PC Case build with a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk fuselage on top.



First making the Nighthawk fuselage.

































A rough parts layout. Checking how the whole build will look like.










Will update you more as I progress.. Thanks.

very cool, I like the unique design, I like that you pointed the nose of the plane down actually, its tasteful, but also no one will get stabbed if they accidentally fall over and hit your pc lol

UPDATE : 22 May 2018

ASUS PRIME X399-A motherboard arrived for the Nighthawk Build. Now can start installing parts together.













Modified AMD RX Vega 56 GPU to Custom Liquid cooled AMD RX Vega 64 (Flashed). Dual BIOS… can easily switch between Vega 56 and Vega 64.
