I like Option 3 for the Motherboard. Should really make it "pop" Option 1 for the door. Same "shades" so ties together nicely. My opinion anyway.

Are you going to be using the 50mm fan? I am just thinking they advise using it in WC'ing applications to get airflow going. Leather is gonna insulate it even further?

Edit: Read your "Parts List" I see it's on there. Which leads me to what fan are you using?(I need a new one, this cheap Fractal Design I have is junk)
Well they all agree with you lol. Here is the fan I just ordered today: http://www.xoxide.com/gelid-silent550mm-casefan.html IDK how it will do but there is only 1 way to find out.

Awesome build! I agree with INSTG8R on the leather choices :toast:
agree with the above and nice touch with the leather.
Yep same here with leather choice
Thanks guys.

subbed!!
i really like the rusty effect
Thanks for the sub!

Thank you everyone for taking the time to vote!! Its pretty much come down to 1 and 3 where where the 2 that I liked to begin with. I'm going to go with option 1 because it is a bit more subtle and it won't take your attention away from the accent parts that I'll be painting. Some people have expressed concern with putting leather on the armor as it would heat up the mobo too much. The Sabertooth P67 is already a hot mobo to begin with and adding another layer of insulation might not be the best idea so I'm painting it to match the interior of the case.

A modding update is coming very soon!

What can I say I got an eye for it :p

That looks like a pretty decent fan. My choices in 50mm fans are pretty limited availability. I will probably just end with Fractals new one with the Hydro Bearing(the original version the bearing was pretty much doomed from the beginning) They are cheap either way no loss really.

There was a pretty decent SilenX vendor here at one time but no 50's to be found(and I have some old "thick" 60's :banghead:)

I don't find my Sabertooth gets all that warm "under the hood" Maybe the Fractal is doing a good job?:confused:

Well I have the same mobo in my gaming rig and I always get popups about temps so maybe the fan really does make a difference.

Never had a single Pop Up(It Pops UP??.:wtf:) Not seen any temps better than say Mid-40's Other than the VRM of course. If it's on water it just lost it's main source of airflow. They did think this design thru really IMO. Not just a fancy gimmick.

Get a fan on there. That's what the hole is there for;)

The AI suite gives pop up warnings when I'm gaming. Parts of the mobo get uber hot when you don't have that assist fan on.

Thanks for the sub bud!

I got tons of work done so this update might be a bit big.... sorry but at least it has lots of pictures for you :D

Up first is the 50mm assist fan for the mobo.



You can see that the cable is quite long. So I need to fix that.



After I got it to the correct length I plugged it in and the wire instantly broke at the connector.



So I did it again thinking I screwed up but it happened again! So the fan is in the trash now and I ordered a new one from Xoxide and hopefully it will be better quality.


I cut and straightened out the part of the thermal armor by the MOS block. Looks good now.





Here is a shot of the RAM. Nice Corsair Dominator!





I wanted to do a test fit so here are all the blocks on the mobo.



Time for some sleeving so I got out my trusty box of MDPC-X sleeving and went to work. This color works best I think to kinda match the rust.







Next I painted the 360 and 240 rad, mounted the grills and fans on them and sleeved the fans. I'm short a few fans and fan grills so the 240 does not have them on it yet.



I also painted the XSPC rad brackets.





I've heard good things about the LutroO sleeving tool so I figured I'd pick one up and try it out. I'll be using it for the PSU sleeving.




Since I decided to paint the thermal armor to match the interior of the case I wanted to remove some of the little indentations on it. So I got out the Bondo and lathered it on.













Next I sanded it down just a little bit because I wanted to keep some of the imperfections.

















I then coated it with primer and the iron paint.



And here it is after a few coats of the rust solution stuff.







Put some clear coat on and put it back on the mobo.















That's all for this update.

Here is what I'm currently waiting for to arrive:
Gold paint
Spray adhesive
50mm Fan
120mm Fan grills
Lamptron FC10

I'm sure there is more but that's all I can think of right now. I'm travelling for the next few days so I probably won't have any work done till next weekend. Hope your enjoying the mod.

Cheers till next time,

Fuga

Heh had no idea it did that. Good to know:toast:


The Mobo looks awesome! Very clever idea that turned out fantastic :cool:

Sorry your first fan didn't work out. When I order a new one for mine I "may" make an attempt at shortening the wires. I just left mine iin the twist tie it came out of the package in it's sleeved so it's not all that iintrusive anyway.

Now I would probably do it "the hard way" and unsolder them, cut them and solder them back on :D

This is also what I did whit my Scyth GT fans when I shortened the wires and sleeved them. I tried the cut in the middle but then I had a hard time getting the wire through the sleeve coz of the "bump" midway through... :)

Sorry for the delay in updates. We took a trip to South Africa for some medical appointments last week. Got to do a ton of things down there including visiting a Lion Park!! Was pretty cool to be able to pet some lion cubs.






On with the modding!

I picked up some UN Radiator mounting brackets which are so freaking awesome. They allow you to mount a radiator in your 5.25" bays.



And here it is.





Above it I put the Silverstone Slim DVD drive bay. The rad is touching it because I have to have enough room below the rad to put the pumps.




I decided to install all the rads to see how everything would fit. Here is the 4x120



A surprise will be going in this vacant spot :D



And the 3x120



Installed the PSU to make sure I had enough clearance for the connectors.



Indeed. There is enough room!




Somehow I forgot to do the rust effect to the back of the mobo tray so that is going on right now. Once its done I can clear coat it and it will be good to go.




I've been doing lots and lots of thinking on how I am going to run the loop. I figured that I need to bring the loop through the midplate twice but I didn't want you to be able to see it the second time. So I measured and drilled a hole above the 4x120 rad and connected it with a Bitspower D-Plug for now. I ordered a 25mm extension to go there.






And here you can see where the pumps will be. I measured and the Bitspower dual D5 pump top should fit under it. If not, I ordered a second EK D5 pump top and ill connect them together using some 90 degree fittings and extensions.





I received my Lamptron FC10 too! I'll be doing a review on it soon.




The last bit for this update are the door panels. I like the 4 small windows in the bottom of the side panels for the rads to get air but I decided to make them into one big window.





Then I added some MNPCTECH Round Modder's Mesh.









That's it for today. I have the spray adhesive coming for gluing the leather fabric to the case and the gold spray paint for the accents and the water blocks. That should all be here Friday so I can do a good bit of work this weekend. I'm also hoping that the pump tops get here by this weekend too so I can do some more testing to figure out exactly what I'm going to do.

Cheers till then,

Fuga
