    Nighthawk Build

    Nighthawk Build



    My entry in Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2018 #CMWS18 this time is a stealth build. NIGHTHAWK is a scratch build with a theme of the famous Stealth Fighter plane Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk.



    Being a big fan of stealth fighter plans, my idea this time is to make a open frame PC Case build with a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk fuselage on top.



    First making the Nighthawk fuselage.

































    A rough parts layout. Checking how the whole build will look like.










    Will update you more as I progress.. Thanks.

    Modified AMD RX Vega 56 GPU to Custom Liquid cooled AMD RX Vega 64 (Flashed). Dual BIOS… can easily switch between Vega 56 and Vega 64.
