To start off:
Be Quiet sponsored me with a Shadow Rock 2.
Gigabyte sponsored me with a GA-F2A88XN-WIFI.
What I started doing was to fix the 120mm hole in the front and also make the 92mm hole in the back to 120mm.
Then I started working on a shroud that would cover the powersupply. Used acrylic that I painted black on one side.
Then I painted the inside of the acrylic black too so it would hide the powersupply and everything else.
Then I added the fan grill I got from Bill. Looks awesome!
I got the motherboard and cpu down at Jönköping where Dreamhack is, so I installed everything there. It ended up looking like this.
And here it is together with all the other mods, I always ends up with the smallest mods haha.
So next thing to do is to make a watercooled version. I also have to get ahold of a CPU, I think Ill wait for the new AMD A10-7850K, should be released in January, the 14th I think. I was thinking of using a 50-60mm 120mm radiator in the front. Should be enough for the CPU.
So what did you think about the "aircooled Dreamhack" version of this mod?
With kind regards
