Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by to check out my build log.

 

I will be transforming the NR200p into a vertical tower encompassing elements of nature mixed with an industrial retro theme. I have just started stripping the case and ordering parts. This week I hope to start modifying the side and front panels and start drawing up designs for the top vent.

 

Parts that will be included in the build will be transferred from my old system.

 

-i5 6600k clocked at 4.8ghz

-16 gb ddr4 ram

-z170 motherboard

-1070 water cooled

-600-watt sfx PSU

 

I'm a bit late to the party but I'm really looking forward to how this evolves over the coming weeks.

 

All the best and looking forward to all you amazing builds!

I really underestimated the paint job and steel treatment from Cooler Master, this took 3 rounds of paint stripper and wet sanding with 80 grit through till 1200 grit. I have just started to add a patina to the steel with a combo of vinegar, peroxide and salt I'll add photos to show how the patina progresses.

Currently lasering off the paint on the strip of the top mesh panel to add a clean patina to the front. This may or may not make it to the final build as I still have some wood panels on order and would like to see what goes well together.
