First thing ... the projectname is "P|NNED" ... as you can read from the letters it has someting to do with K|NGP|N.

Thanks alot to the sponsors Seasonic, Cablemod and Kingston HyperX !

It is a openframe case and you can use it like a benchtable
That casing can hold four 480mm radiators ! You may ask yourself "why you need four 480mm rads ?"

Some Hardwarespecs for you


CPU: INTEL I9 9980XE 18cores 36threads
MB: EVGA X299 Dark
GPU: EVGA RTX 2080 Ti K|NGP|N with the Hydrocopper waterblock
RAM: 64GB HyperX Predator QuadKit 3200MHz CL16 (noRGB)
SSD: 2x 960GB HyperX
M.2 SSD: 2x512GB Samsung 960 PRO
HDD: 12TB Seagate Barracuda Pro
PSU: Seasonic Prime 1300 Platinum

The design of this casecon should mind to the EVGA gpu cooler design from the K|NGP|N and FTW3 models.

All parts are made from aluminium sheet in 2 and 3mm and getting powder coated in matt black.

i dont know whats the build for. I figured its a advertisement for some company(s) that sponsored you since you are taking nice pictures of items. People dont usually take these types of pictures of computer parts.
I already now its a advertisement post, are these types of threads even allowed on TPU.
First the most hardware is not sponsored ! 2nd what is wron on taking nice pictures ?? I love photographing ! The whole case is designed by me and it is unique. I didnt see any advertising here just some nice hardwareshots oO

The build is for a friend ... he aksed me to do a build for his hardware ... and that what i do ... i designed a case from scratch and now its getting alive ... sorry that you dont like my worklog ... its not my first one here

P|NNED Update ... Radiators and fans are mounted :) also you can see my own designed cpu cooler top with a Heatkiller bottomplate inside. On the backside the four 480mm radiators and the nice Prime 1300W Platinum PSU are mounted :)

The silver screws getting exchenage against nice black lens head screws ;)

Also the mesh looking really good ! The K|NGP|N 2080 Ti Hydrocopper gets mounted vertical. I have to drill some holes for the vertical holder tomorrow. After that i can measure the length of the cables.
