Hi all!

My name is Filippo aka "FlowMods" and I am an italian modder! This is the first post here for me :D

I am starting this 2018 with a new project :D

Based on a CT eSports Galaxy, "Project Hyacinthum" will be based on a light blue / alluminium color theme and will feature a complete custom water cooling loop with custom distro plates :D
This will be the first casemod I realize with my new CNC router so this will be also a test mod realized entirely by myself and not with the help of an external company :D

I surely have to thank Cortek, a cool company based in Italy, for supplying me the chassis plus the PSU and rainbow programmable fans

Give their site a visit at: http://www.cortekesports.com/main/index.html

But now.. it's time for some starting pictures! Look at beautiful and well realized is that case. I love the colours and the materials used are really really good :D




















And this is what I am currently working on :D Completely accurate 3D model made with solidworks, to design the new plate I will be using for this mod.. for me is something like a challenge with myself, testing the new router with something not so easy.. but.. you will see later :D


For now this is all!

Stay tuned and feel free to ask everything you want, I will try to answer your question!
Oh, and if you want to stay more and more update, visit my fb page and IG account in my signature:D

Thank you all!

Wow that is a case I haven't seen yet. It looks nice. Since the fans are RGB do you have a distinct color scheme you plan on using or will it be a full on rainbow theme?

HI! Yes the case really looks cool and it's not so common :)

I will be using them in blue / white and blue! These fans really have some nice colour effects :D Will post a video in the next few days!

Hi guys! Making progress with the design :D

Here I am designing the most import part, the MoBo plate with integrated channels :)

I hope it will be finished in the week end!

Hi guys :D

Planning is the key!
Removed the original mobo plate, designed the new one and made a wooden template to manually draw the channels before passing everything in CAD..

Stay tuned!

Hi guys!

We are now entering in the best part of the build :D
My new CNC router is ready after some months of work and I started milling the wooden test mobo plate :D

Stay tuned for more updates and fitting tests!
