Craig Ferrie Posted February 5, 2017 Share Posted February 5, 2017 Hello, Welcome to the logs for GOLD RUSH. What is Gold Rush ? Gold rush is an exotic project with 24ct gold plated fittings, Backplate, and whatever else i can get my filthy paws on The case it's self will be, cut up, and resprayed in a white/gold flip paint. Featuring a parallel loop and a gold mine on the shroud, this project will be a show stopper. SPECS!

Other parts Intel Core i7 6700k @ 4.8ghz Design i've never been very good at 3D modeling software, so i do my best in words to describe the mess in the image lol. Now a few things to point out. The loop under the GPU will no longer be zig zagged, it will be a straight 45 degree angle from GPU to Shroud. Around the base of the reservoir and where the fittings meet the shroud, there will be pyrite fools gold set around them, like gold is forming around a hot chamber. The name ''gold Rush'' will be cut from the shroud, and filled with pyrite (Fools gold) for a more authentic look. Sponsor logo's on the front will be made from real 24ct gold leaf. The gold triangles you see on the case will be cut outs, and meshed for looks and ventilation. The mesh will be gold too. Time Frame I'm guessing at 4 weeks, as this is the biggest project i've undertaken yet and by all means the toughest work yet. Media Over the next 4 weeks i'll be doing a VLOG of the build progress, out on the road, at home, wherever i need to go, be sure it'll be on video. i expect 4 episodes 1 for each week. Don't fret, as pictures will be uploaded as i go for the project logs and social media. Teaser Now we can get this show on the road. PICTURES!!!! Fred is on hand to help me out!

First i cut and fitted the front shroud (first of 2) You'll see what i mean later I then cut the rear I/o Cover thingy and fitted that Case / Motherboard / Fans and radiators are due into the auto shop on monday to get flip painted. So my next update before then will be the arrival of Alphacool products. Excited now it's all finally moving along. Will bring more updates as i continue.
