This update takes us all the way up being ready for EGX! The last few weeks have been really busy and so modding took a back seat until the last minute to get this ready for delivery to ASUS. Time always seems to fly when there are things to be done and this was no exception! Given the lack of time, photos took a bit of a back seat so please forgive me for the quality of some of these. I have ordered a studio kit so that should be here in time for our next project. First up was to spray some of the external components to match the rest of the build. I had a rough idea of how I wanted the exterior to look but didn’t know exactly how it would turn out. Lack of time does force you to make decisions on builds and in some ways, I am pleased the pressure was on because as it turns out, I think it compliments the interior really well. With the components painted it was time to fit the final parts from Ben of Kent including the HGA to the front panel. Part of the vision was to include the Proton Pack parts that were recycled to fit this machine so that it provides the contrast between weathered and newish components. The top of the Dark Base features Clippard Valves tied into the front of the system and wiring loom. With everything fitted it was time to test the lighting. This system is quite complicated given what I was trying to achieve and it cant be seen in photos. The interior is based on the ASUS Aura Flash and Dance to mimic the Power Cell from the Proton Pack and is controlled by onboard ARGB. For the front panel Cyclotron, the Dark Base 900 included RGB is used to provide a breathing effect while the overall case and fan lighting are controlled by external Bitfenix ARGB.
