I'm a long time reader but this is my second project posted here. My old project was dreampc and I didn't like it at all for some personal reasons and now I'm here, working in a new project but in the same case, corsair obsidian 800D. In this forum there are a lot of real artists so hope you like my project
I would like to give a big thanks to Ricardo from Coldzero (www.coldzero.eu):
Coldzero will cut with laser all my designs and to ProfesionalReview (http://profesionalreview.com):

I decided to start a new project instead of ending my old one because some one told to me that with "my knock-off build I was openly stealing the work from murdermod" so I decided to start a new project with my own ideas and making a reset.
As like the old project, I work with CAD software, mainly Autocad and a solidworks and about this last one, I know just a little bit of how to use it, but I know the enough for doing what I need .
This time, the design is going to be simple, combining the matte-black color (mainly) plus the blue color and a little of white in some little details!
An example of design type about what i'm going to do:
The main pieces are:
Motherboard Tray Plate:
This plate is a plate that covers the free zone near the motherboard and this is the design:
And I want to highlight this little plates:
Why alot of holes? because in each hole I will pass one sleeved cable so the final result of all the cables passed is like a spider structure (very aesthetic in my mind, hope I will get a good result!). In every hole there are a little "ring" wich will be illuminated so the contrast with the black cable will be awesome! This plates correspond to the 24 pins plate and the GPU power cable plates.
Nowadays there are a lot of mod with Waterblocks + backplate combination build but I wanted to try to be different to other people so decided to design my own backplate:
It's simple, full matte-black plate + the gpu model letters. In real it's a double backplate, one black and one blue. All the blue parts, like the mb tray plate will be illuminated with SMD leds directly connected to the GPU fan connector !
Last week I found a really good offer of a gtx 480 for 200€, so I decided to buy one and this is it:
wich will be configured to SLI with my old POV GTX 480 with aquacomputer waterblock:
So there will be 2 custom backplates for each GPU and the two backplates illuminated too.
By now, that's all the pieces that I have already done! for the next days I will post the custom midplate and probably the full faceplate.
All this pieces are designed by my own but will be made with laser cutting tech.
