[WARNING - BUILDING IN PROGRESS]
This is Martin, from Denmark, here!
I'll be building a watercooled Haf Stacker, and painting a little NAS server together as a mini bro. My previous case was the Corsair 700D, which was gorgeous, but i wanted something bigger with a lot of space. The choice was between the 900D or HAF stackers, and since there is a lot of 900D mods out there, then i just wanted to try something else.
This casemod is called Avalanche. Simply because it is white, big and is gonna be terrifying heavy! I live on 1. floor and almost can't lift it down the stairs alone , even without anything inside it.
Watercooling will be themed white and black. Fittings, res etc will be themed white, while the fluid will be black as the best contrast. I will be running hardline tubing and soft tubing in the bottom for draining and easy acces. Cables will be sleeved with white paracord which looks insanely awesome
I got some parts and then i have hard specs, the parts is more like the smaller things in the case. But the parts that I am going to use for the case is
HAF Stacker 935
HAF Stacker 915R
11x SHADOW WINGS 120mm
1x SHADOW WINGS 140mm
3x SHADOW WINGS 92mm
GPU: 2x GTX 980 Ti
PSU: Corsair AX 1500w
MOBO: ASUS X99 Deluxe
RAM: 64GB DDR4 2800Mhz
I have already thought of lighting, I got annoyed by the lightning from the RGB strips i currently have, so I took it to the next level and ordered a RGBW Pure White LED strips. With that I'll be using a DX8 Touch controller, which I'll be mounting In a place which is easy to reach from outside the case.
Planning and sketching
I got the sketches of the 915Rs, but i might not get to the 935, the most important sketches were the 915's as it is those that will be getting modded the most.
To do list
- Cut side panel ✓
- Paint cases ✓
- Place acrylic window panels ✓
- PSU cover and cable cover to the top 915R
HAF Stacker unboxed and is now ready to get cut. I plan on putting custom windows in the top as you might have noticed in the sketching.
