Hi ofxaos, sorry for the very late reply, I faded out of PCP slowly until I didn't check-in anymore. If it is still of help, I got my acrylic from Home Depot, a hardware store, it is 1/4" thick and I prefer thicker because it is easier to bend. I clamped the acrylic on the table with a piece of wood about 1" from the bend line and used a a heat gun (I read that blow hair dryers work too with a bit more patience) to heat along the line. Holding the free end and applying light pull, kept heating until I felt it start bending and continued until I was close to the angle I needed.
Thank you for your comments, I got the memory bundled with the motherboard and I thought that was the perfect pairing for a white build, the memory was literally made to match that specific motherboard and should stay like that.
I really want to see your build, seems like a lot of custom work, I hope you can post it soon!!
There are adapters for bigger fans, I saw some 40mm to 60/80mm custom 3D printed ones on eBay
Sometimes, human builds come with low spec components ;)
It only needs some Tie Fighter wings :)
Awesome, thank you!
Can we... see the pinball cabinet? :)
So far, no banana comments... so... does the banana help absorb case heat in that position? How many Ks does it provide?
Clean build btw, there was a long period of time when I really wanted one of those fancy HTPC cases.
Congrats on the feature, I was hoping it would make it :D
How many Ks does the banana provide? Is it enough for the daily allowance?
Awesome job bringing it back to life in a very clean way!
I like the picture where the camera flash is reflected on the coin battery of the motherboard. :)
This is one of the most beautiful non-water-cooled non-rainbow-puking builds I've seen, the color theme reminds me of Portal, awesome stuffs!
Impressive build and customization, I like white builds and I wasn't planning on painting the Vertical Display GPU Holder but thanks to you I can now visualize how it would look if I did and I might.
I don't think I've ever seen a card that long... CAD? Rendering?
Pictures 2, 5 and 10. The fans are pushing out.
Clean job!! Now you gotta find a way to mount the memory DIMMs so they are horizontal too :P
Awesome build, the cards with the bridge look killer, I think that the green light is a bit out of place and some cable combs for the gpu power cables would clean it up a big notch!
You answered all my questions, good job! (Awesome build)
I like the black coolant as is because the clear tubing gives it a weird effect, like if it was black goop/symbiote going around, something very unusual, unique. If you wanted to visualize the flow, you may be able to add some modifier to make it look pearlescent/metallic, I haven't done a custom loop in my life so I don't know how that would work but if it can be pulled off it would be very cool.
The black coolant definitely makes the build unique, the first thing that popped into my mind was Venom.
Thank you for the details on the mods to fit the Cooler Master vertical graphics holder, I got a pretty good idea on what to do now.
I can see myself wondering around the little computer shops in the 90's and different colored cases were starting to be a thing, awesome stuffs!
Clean build, great job routing the cooler hoses and the light theme reminds me of Tron! Awesome stuffs!
If you ever want to get back to your test bench, you can cat-proof it by creating a custom plexi-glass cover with covered sides, you can leave the bottom open and maybe grille/fan openings on sides, there are many possibilities with the P3.
I appreciate that, I like to see how is the internal configuration in these tiny cases and how does it look in real life. I understand, it is hard to cable manage in that reduced space.
Beautiful build. That's it, I can't say anything else that hasn't been said already, awesome stuffs!
I like white builds and I like small builds and it looks like you did a good job of packing a ton of power in there, can you post internal pictures?
Core P series were made for custom water cooling, awesome job, those bends are very clean!
The airflow sucked because it didn't suck, the GPU is almost flush with the window, case design issue, you could make some openings on the window but then dust... and dust filters might block the view =\
Thank you for the extra pics, it is cool to see the integrated cooler before mounting.
Thank you! I was looking at the Genome before the P3 but I really wanted to get "out of the box", the dust was a concern but my previous closed case had intake fans without dust covers and dust was a minimal problem. I did cover the top with the custom plexi cover and two months in I don't see any noticeable dust accumulation, I do have a thick rug and don't vacuum often.
Man, I just looked on eBay and they still go way over MSRP... I would like to see more pictures of the interior tho :)
Awesome build! Did you ever consider the Star Wars Titan Xp GPUs?
I like how you synchronized the green accents around. You can use some cable sleeves to hide the PSU spaghetti cables, like these ones: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01M18YWXC
I've always wanted to show the GPU on my case, I don't like much how it protrudes on this case but with some work you can make it look good. Open air cases allow full view of your computer components and in this "case" you can work around pretty easy!
I LOVE THIS!! Somebody that takes an existing old and terrible and ugly case and converts it into a sleek case that challenges and beats the new off-the-shelf ones in form and function like this gets my respect. This well deserves a feature, awesome stuffs!!
That's why he needs a "Deep learning" computer
Still running stable, added a couple of lighted Silverstone fan grilles but they overpower the whole thing so I will cover them with a couple of Silverstone fan dust grilles that I need to paint white. Also added an HDD cage :)
I see, phew!
So wait, this is a rebuild of "Not your father's PC", right? Or you have to extremely similar builds?
Still pretty cool, why did you replace the Captain EX Cooler? Function over form?
RGB IS STILL A THING, DON'T LISTEN TO THE CYMK GUYS!!!
Cool build btw.
+1 for the name. Also clean build!!
This build looks cleaner than many several thousand dollar machines, awesome stuffs!
Awesome build and setup, I like how most of your stuff is white, I didn't know that the MX Master 2s was available in white! I wish that the motherboard was available in white too.
Cool build, amazing monitor setup, the 5" screen is a nice touch, you could use a piece of cardboard to hide the connection side :)
This is what I think of when somebody describes their PC as a "beast", it's powerful, huge and scary but good! I can see how could that tubing take about a week to get done.
Awesome build, I like how everything lights the same color, took me a bit to figure out that the thing on the left was the subwoofer for your speakers :)
That's a Fast looking build!
You almost had me? You never had me, you never had your car...
Color theme is amazing! Gave me some ideas for my son, awesome build!
