[Build Log] Blue Snow - Panzer Max

Level 7
Hi Guys,

A while ago I did a build for Cougar Gaming in their Panzer Max. I was meaning to do a stage by stage build log, but life, work obligations, changes in employment and moving house all came into practice and it kind of got lost in the making, so I will be posting everything here to see.

Tech Specs
ASRock X99 TaiChi
Intel Core i7 6800k
16GB T-Force Dark DDR4
Zotac GTX 1070 AMP Edition
Cougar GX800 Power Supply
Byski 2011 CPU Block (modded to fit 2011-V3 Socket)
Byski 150mm Reservoirs
Byski 120mm & 240mm Radiators
Primochill Tubing and Fittings


The concept of the build was to try to make it as clean as possible, I planned on putting in custom panel cut outs to create a power supply shroud, and front panel shroud in order to put in a custom 5" LCD Sensor Panel.

I would create pass throughs for the tubing in order to keep it as free flowing and neat as possible.

Below are a few images of my design ideas on paper, and paper concepts mock up.

As you can see by my initial designs not everything actually came into reality with what I was planning on doing. In truth I had so much stuff going on I kept changing aspects in order to make more progress, I am not entirely happy with the end product, but I am planning on doing a rebuild of it in the near future. But you will see what I mean when we get further into it.

I will post some more updates real soon!

So I have finished the cuts for the acrylic. I have a table saw so I was able to get them pretty accurate. I decided to do straight cuts and no bend in the acrylic and than by using right angled aluminium I am able to give the appearance of free flowing panel work. Below are some updated images!
