After creating the base plate bracket it was time to move on with creating the base structure of the base exterior. I got inspired by the original stands of the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 as they are angled, so decided to try to incorporate them. What’s not to like with feet like
Timelapse of creating the PSU Shroud for custom PC project Angl3d Ti. It is close to 5h of original video. The entire work with the shroud from start to finish took close to 100h. The PSU Shroud will be painted black and part of a larger custom pc mod of the amazing be quiet! Dark
A custom hand made exterior case in acrylic for the Dark Base Pro 900 will be a challenge. A huge one, but a challenge I knew from start would be needed to complete the vision of the project. TBH, I don’t even have a plan, but need to make it up as I go along.
With a full EK water block cooled ASUS 1080Ti it feels almost mandatory to do a vertical GPU. One thing I learned with Project Zeuligan is that the back of the be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900 is a little to flexible to support a GPU without some sag. Therefor I decided to do a
It’s always nice, but time consuming, when you reach the painting stage in a project. I thought about vinyl, but wanted to paint, to check that off my list of things to test and learn. It’s also with the paint the accents and the project name will start to come together. One last test
After over 100 hours of hand filing and acrylic focus the base shape of the PSU Shroud for project Angl3d Ti is finished. Managed to create it divided into two pieces without a visible edge. One of the last pieces of the PSU Shroud mod. All 3 sides angled in opposite directions and created with
I’m exploring the possibility to integrate a hidden RGB LED strip behind a front case cover. Complete with accent sprockets to go with the ASROCK Taichi X399 motherboard. Started with creating a 40mm wide (half of the Red backside bracket) angled piece in 3 mm acrylic. I plan to use the existing mounting
The main part of project Redrock is the custom PSU Shroud with an integrated L shaped beam in red color. Same red color as the exterior. It will be challenging to create a perfect fit of the 3 individual pieces as they are hand crafted. I had to redo the entire floor of the
Instead of boring you with countless and countless of pictures of triangles I decided to put together a short movie when creating one triangle. At this stage I have spent well beyond 70h sawing, grinding, filing, sanding and combining triangles to create my PSU Shroud for project Angl3d Ti. PSU Shroud piece one of two.
Awesome times with the possibility to do another project in the amazing be quiet! Dark Base Pro 900. My third consecutive project in the same case. The project is extra special for me as it will also be my ever first AMD build, with an AMD Threadripper 1900X. ASROCK, EK Water Blocks, be quiet!
