Hi everyone my name is Mickee from the Philippines and I would like to share this build in this community, The
Idea is to make a modular test bench in a Thermaltake Core X71. Wish me luck!
Here is what I have in mind but I really suck at following plans basically it might change later down the line
Here is the Core X71
To kick things off lets start to strip the case down.
They were really easy to remove.
For this batch I used a drill to take out the riveted parts.
I'm really not an expert in sleeving that is why I use sleeved extensions on my builds but I want to try it out
Clean looking cables from the front I/O would be nice.
The front audio cord needs to be stripped off its rubber coating because I only have 3mm sleeves.
I am very slow at this lol this took me about 30 minutes.
And yes! but I don't know where I can get a sleeve that would fir the USB 3.0 cable
Lets unbox them!!
Lets start with the memory modules
The 1000G Power Supply
I am going to sleeve them later down the line.
Lovin' the hammered finish
The Z170 Classified K Motherboard
Shroud for the rear I/O
EVGA Classfied 980ti
Very nice! we have bonus items
Going back to the card itself.
It is massively awesome!
That was a blast!
Going back to the case
The case has temporarily lost its rigidity when the motherboard tray and rear panel was removed so aluminum bars
the rescue! I like using aluminum bars because they are easy to cut and file.
I also gave the case a little tilt
It not super sturdy yet but it will be later
3mm Acrylic will serve as out motherboard tray for this project, some cutting and measuring.
Aluminum bars for the skeletal system of the modular test bench.
So those are all that I have so far, I am working on the measurements them cut them altogether then screw or have them riveted to the relevant points.
Next update will be on the weekend, see ya!
