Been a bit of a delay with the final part of the build due to missing parts, mostly COVID related issues.
I've now finally completed the build and will finish of my posts with the last couple of updates before the final photos.


Here's one of the crystals that will be used on the inside of the case with some RGB lighting, the plan is to have the build mostly white with some slight blue here and there, when completed it will be my daughters 1st PC and she loves how it reminds her of Frozen the movie.

3D printed a surround for the front crystal display to tidy it up, this will be painted the same as the other parts of the case in a nice
silver chrome effect.

First time painting glass side panels, but its worked out well, changed the black edges to the same silver chrome, used some etch primer on the bottom
and it looks to be holding well, but I did also sand the glass parts before painting.

've made cuts in the top of the case to make some air flaps, this will mean I don't have to remove the top for some extra airflow for the RAD, although it can be placed in a floating position around 10mm from the surface without any modding needed.

This cover I've made will house the SSD and also help hide the PSU and wires, replacing the original cover that comes with the case.

Must say, I normally use Afterburner for overclocking but the software that comes with the Palit 3080 (ThunderMaster) is really nice, no bugs so far and makes changing the lighting and overclocking a breeze!

The last of the Monocure3D clear resin prints, a very impressive Crystal logo for the top of the case.

Here's ,me testing the lighting for the crystals and planning the layout for the wires.

The final build parts have been fitted, 3 more Masterfan MF120s for the bottom to replace the other 3 I tested with and the MWE 850 Gold V2 PSU from Cooler Master.

My daughter is happy to have her 1st PC, she loves the Frozen movies so likes the style and politely asked if she could have the PC for her birthday, how could I refuse :)
