Mistral Part 2

Time to tear down the EVGA DG-77 then, we had already started on this as part of the Team Green build but now we have a new plan. There’s plenty for us to strip down here including a top, front and rear plastic fascia panels.


We will be using a MATX board in the X299 Micro and a vertical GPU mount. Since we can’t get hold of a block from Alphacool at the moment we will stick with the stock cooler.

Our 360 radiator will sit in the front, while the case does support top-mounted, it won’t work with our parts due to clearance on the fans. I have removed the front dust filter and will be fitting the fans more to the outside of the front panel.

With everything removed, including the PSU shroud RGB EVGA logo, we can move onto some paint. We partnered with Rust-Oleum for a previous project and we have some Aluminium RAL 2114 that we think will be perfect for this. I think by brightening up the case will make it more appealing and give it some sparkle too.
