((((Intro))))


The first part of the build will be for a Local lan event later this month. I wanted to take something different to this lan and I am giving my self a really short time frame to get some items done. Like a month... So this should be a nice roller coaster...


The name comes from me wanting to use the Black and Red theme also it just seemed to fit.



((((Hardware))))


NZXT H440 Case Black and Red
ASUS Maximums VI Formula Motherboard
ASUS GTX 760 GPU
Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3 cooler
Silent Wing 2 fans
Be Quiet Powerzone 750 watt PSU
Items to be named later



((((Fab work))))

Make custom grills for the case
Possibility of illuminated mid plate
Red and Black cables set to a custom length.
Other small items.

To get started out.



I am waiting on the case to show up from my order. Since I do have access to the H440 for testing and fitment of items, I made this template for the Grill design.

How would this design look cut into the panels on the case.

2nd Update


Some Product pics.

She is going to get some Rework done
Image
I have something planned for the plate on this one.
Image
I got the cables made ahead of time with extra length on them. I want them set to the right length without worrying about excess taking up space.
