That would be great to see and bring more attention to his legacy akira

Giger's recent passing has made this project now a priority for me. Intel 1155, i7 3770, 3.5 GHz CPU will be cooled by Swiftech's new Apogee XL waterblock. My good friend EEL Ambiense has offered to create a new H.R. GIGER inspired cover plate for the Apogee XL. We're still debating about the design... I just may go with "H.R. GIGER, 1940 - 2014", since this has become a tribute build to him.





Test Fitting Hardware Labs Black Ice NEMESIS 360 GTX Radiator. The chassis is a Cooler Master HAF 912, rotated 90 degrees.

Working on a bracket this afternoon for mounting the 360GTX radiator. For CPU loop, I'm using Black Ice Nemesis 120 GTX Radiator, mounted in the top, which is actually the rear exhaust fan hole. I rotated the Cooler Master HAF 912 chassis 90 degrees. It has a Black anodized Overkill 120mm Fan Ring mounted over it.



These are something I've wanted to offer for awhile, Best description I can think of is "Open Air" style fan and radiator grill frames. You can use them as template. *Combine or layer them with other grills or perforated materials to create your own custom styled fan or radiator grill.*

My case for the tribute is being currently fabricated by the company who made it! I can't wait to begin this project!

My only problem (not a bad one ;)) is that I have no idea what I will put in it. The only thing I bought so far are the PSU, the Motherboard and the RAM.

There's going to be some 3D printed elements for the theme and some custom work already done on the case by the manufacturer....and probably some CNC work in acrylic and in aluminum....but that part is only a maybe since I don't have access to any CNC.


I can't wait to see the custom work on the CPU block!

You did a tremendous job so far!!!

WOW, that sounds amazing already!!!!! Please let me know when you start it!!

Ditching the front HD for this Stainless Steel reservoir, made by Cheapskate for the Lanboy Apocalypse build from 4 years ago... This is for the Crossfire GPU liquid loop. To hold the res, I'm using this vented anodized aluminum panel I cannibalized from NZXT Khaos full tower few years ago. I will be mounting Black plastic flexible conduit between the fins.

Thank you guys! I'll be back in the workshop this afternoon working on GPU loop. I made mesh cover for the D5 pump with Black Acetal top that I won from Alphacool last year, and will post photos as soon as I can.
