Scratch Build - Project: Silent Shadow
 
Hi all here at HardwareCanucks!

Im new here and have a project that I would like to present to you!

Let me introduce Project Silent Shadow, This is my first Modd/design project.
The main thing with this project is that Im going to build a computer chassi from ground up.
The color theme that the build have is Black and Red, I will also try to keep it as clean as possible. I will also make this an all watercooled build.

The chassi is going to be made out of aluminum, what methods I will be using to get all the cheetmetal as I want, I will have to figure that out as I go.


Hope that this is making some HWC members interested in following my journey.

Keep in touch, updates is coming.

Excuse my English, it's not all that good but I hope you understand what I'm writing.

Big thanks to:

Seems as though you have a great build ahead of you.

After spending some time with drilling and tapping holes for screws, and at the same time letting the CNC do its work I finally got some more parts ready :)

Not a gigantic update but hope you like it! :D
