Well it was a quick build so here are the final photos of project tattoo flash.

Just from this photo alone I believe you can see that I managed to hide the cables as much as possible

I like the way it came out in the end and enjoyed using 3d Printing for the first time in a build, I know this build wont be someone's cup of tea as the saying goes but I am proud of it and learned some new things with regards to 3d printing. I hope you enjoyed this quick build.

Now onto the interesting part, I wanted to do something with the motherboard due to the cables that would be on show in the tower 900 so I decided to custom make and print some covers to hide these.
 

image001.jpg

 
First off I done a couple of test prints for this to cover the sides, this was followed by a bottom section to cover the sata ports and the others (in tower 900 the board is at 90 degrees so the bottom is where mobo power is now).

So test prints were ok and what I had planned, so time to add some skulls to the reservoir, here is what I came up with.

First test print was not that great as the skull did not go over the top of the res, but easily corrected as you will see later, so moving onto the gpu block.

Now the gpu block covers were done, I would have to add something as I needed a sli bridge and what better way that to print something that tied into the tattoo flash theme than this.

I also wanted to do a custom fan grill too as one fan is clearly visible in the tower 900.

Next after doing the majority of the printing, I wanted to add something to the windows here is what I went with on the two side windows.

The Left side window I went for a dragon design, while the right side window was a…

Pheonix, onto the front window and I had a simple design that ended up adding more on the sides there was these

And ill leave the final pics of the middle section until next post which will be final ones.

So its been a massive year for me hence the lack of finished photos going up, one thing leads to another and as things normalise for me again I thought I would add some shots of the rig at the end. To cut it short rig has been to plenty of places (sort of on tour) had a few issues (cracked GPU block) and would like to give a big shout out to Alphacool for stepping in to resolve these quickly. Moved home and wife gave birth to our son Aston John Patrick B (or AJ as we call him). So it has been a very crazy year and only now starting to settle, anyway enough of the issues I have had ill just leave some photos here for you guys.

240mm radiator placement sorted and PSU hole done, still loads to do before I can not actually sand down and smooth off yet as I have to mount psu, with proper grill under it and then mount radiator and fan then I can decide placement of the motherboard as well as design and print the mounts to hold motherboard in place, then design the bracket that will hold the gpu in place.
Also printed up many more of the coins for the project thanks to dremel.

Only another 100 or so to print :o
 
Until next time.

So it’s been a long while since I updated the log or actually got started, I was waiting on a few bits more to actually get layout prepped and to crack on.
 
So first up today I made the templates to insure I get my holes cut right, white template is PSU and permanent pen is the rad placement marks (rad will sit under chest).
 
image001.jpg
 
I was going to cut these out today but weather does not look that great today, so I thought I would move onto a bit of hardware porn for the insides.
 
image002.jpg
 
So step up the little itx Z170N gaming 5 from gigabyte the i5 6600 and the sexy EK-Supremacy EVO block.

Very very shiny and the gold colour ties in with the treasure chest concept well, to finish off here is a couple of shots of the block installed.

I know it’s a small update but expect more over the next couple of months now all the parts are finally here, been  waiting for ages to get cracking on this.
