    [Case Mod] Lian Li PC-7H Grafit

    Time for a small mod named Grafit.

    Last week I have picked up a Lian Li PC-7HX in the local hardware store. I didn't had much choice because it had to be this one.
    With this case I want to enter in the Lian Li Case Mod Competition. I know that the end of the competition is in less then 2 months. ^^

    So lets start!







    Fitting the 420 Rad in the front of the case.







    Removed the alu that is in the way. To make room for the radiator.













    By lowering the radiator in to the hole the top of the case fitted back on it.



    Placed some hardware in the case to check out how much space I have left for all the rest.



    I picked up some new parts from IT-Service this weekend.



    Corsair fans are really well designed.



    Working on this piece of plexi when this is ready I will post a new Update.

    For some reason some of the pictures that needed to be in Landscape are in portrait mode. :s

    Thanks Kenneth

    Update!!

    Did a small mod on the heat-sinks of the MB. Because the theme color for this build will be red. I was obligated to change the color of it.

    Removed the heat-sink from theMB





    Filled a small cup with D-stop and placed the pieces that where colored in the cup for 10 minutes.





    Cleaned the product with water. As u can see there are still some blue spots on it. These are the places where the glue was so U wont see a thing of it when the are back in place.









    This way I don't have to sand the pieces and I keep the brushed effect on the parts.






    The HDD case is finished to but I am not convinced by it.



    Had to come up with a new idea for the HDD. Started with some plexi to create a new HDD bay.









    Short movie of how u place the HDD in place

    Did the wires already for the HDD and found a spot for the AC poweradjust 2





    That was it again if the mail service do there job good I will have a very nice suprice before Xmess is here.

    Cya next Time.

    Update

    Still a lot of small thing to do before the case will be ready. To make sure that all the cables are next to each other I used some heatshrink that I cut to small pieces of 3 mm. And glued together with this as result.





    Next step was to add extra details to the top res. Used the same alu bars as on the sidepanel.







    Painted the frame of the case.

    Primer layer





    Finished it with light beige color.







    Cleaned up the mounting bracket for the mobo tray.





    Installed tray and light switch.





    Picture of how it stand now at my place.



    The last piece that had to be created was the front panel for the case. Used a old side panel from a antec case as donor part.



    Glued the 2 pieces together with 2k





    There are still a few thing that need to be made before the case is finished.

    Cya with the next Update.

    Thank U HuffPCair

    Update !!!!

    4 days left before the case needs to be finished.

    Continued my work on the front. Filled the edges up with 2K filler And sanded it all smooth. Had to repeat this proces several time before it was ready.







    Primer



    Colour on it.





    Next step was to finish the top/res. Started to sand it 240 Grid and ended 2000Grid. After that I polished the top/res with Commandant nr4 to give it a clean bling bling finish.
    Before



    After



    After spending few hour on the top/res. I started with the pump mount. My first idea to attach it on the mobo tray. But with the weight and vibrations I changed my mind. Made the mount from a Aluminum L profile.







    When all the pieces where finished I could finally start with installing all the pieces.

















    Big moment filling the loop for the first time.







    Atm there is still no leak.

    Made a short movie of the res with all the rest enjoy



    Next up was cable management. I asked Nate to add some 8x8mm plexi bars with the top/res.



    After some filing and sanding I made this cable holder. Will do the same for all the rest of the power cables.









    That is it again. Still a few thing to do before ready.
    Cya next time!
