maj0rPhas3r Posted August 2, 2022 Share Posted August 2, 2022 (edited) Hey Folks !!! I've been modding and building PCs for a really long time, last major mod was my NZXT Phantom about a decade ago. I recently attended a LAN Party with my friends (https://lpane.net/ ) and took home a sweet Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL240 Flux AIO cooler, which reignited my desire to have a dedicated LAN PC! A project and idea were born and I began researching cases that I could use my cooler in as well as my collection of left over parts from my previous desktop computer build. After much research and deliberation I chose the Cooler Master NR200P mini ITX/DTX case cause well I love the Blue color it comes in and I realized that with a little modification I could make this case work for my cooler and be a unique work of art in the process. I'm a big fan of robots and what not so all my computers have been named after robots etc, my OG build was Wheatley from Portal 2 built in a Phantom, my new build is Rosie from the Jetsons built in a Corsair 7000D, that brings us to this build ! XJ9/Jenny after the main character in My Life as a Teenage Robot on Nickelodeon. The color the case kind of sealed the deal ! FAQ: Q: Why the old GPU ? A: The games we play at LAN Parties are older and less graphically intensive, also this PC will run Linux so older hardware is better supported there So lets run down what we are doing here !! These are the parts I have on hand and have decided to use so far , everything else Is up in the air at the moment ! Parts on Hand: - Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL240 Flux AIO Liquid Cooler - Cooler Master NR200P mini ITX/DTX Case in Caribbean Blues - Sapphire AMD RX 580 Nictro+ 8GB GPU Tentative Parts (Parts I am considering for the rest of the build) - Corsair SFX750 750Watt SFX PSU - ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact - (x2) Samsung 980 Pro 2TB NVME PCIe 4.0 SSD - (x2) Scythe Kaze Flex 120mm Slim Fan 300-1800RPM (Bottom Intake) - More To come The Mods (So Far ) - Invert and Flip the NR200P case, top mount Radiator for AIO cooler, vertical mount GPU upsidedown, Window on right side from the front. - Paint PSU mounting bracket and PCI slot covers metallic silver - Custom 3D Printed U shaped feet, sanded and painted metallic silver - GPU shroud painted metallic blue in special two part pain process using colored clear coats - Paint GPU PCIe clip metallic silver to match rest of PCI slot covers. - Paint the solid white stripe part of the mesh on the top metallic blue using the same two part process as GPU shroud. - Custom 3D printed mount plate for mounting radiator flush in the top (work in progress) Edited August 2, 2022 by maj0rPhas3r Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
