I turn an Alienware aruro r3 into a custom build of mine I been wanting to look at.

 
and turn it into this
 
 
I had to take all the frames off Motherboard was bigger than the original. had some issues with the motherboard so got a new gigabyte motherboard.
Had to reposition the power supply to the front b/c motherboard to hang over where the power supply was original.
 
 I had to take panels off to replace the led lights. now time for the vinyl. I"ll be adding what cards and motherboard. I use the default power supply with dell. this is the least cost folding machine I wanted to make.
 I'm thinking I have to re due to the vinyl the corner little trickier than I though they are.
I'll be posting some of the rest of the work on the weekend as free time comes up I have to the panel on the back etc.. with lights.
 
more to be updated I'll try to get specs of what going the machines.

    WOW! What a Great Idea soullesshunter
    I have an R4 and it sits collecting Dust with a 3930K CPU and an old GTX 690.
    Maybe I will have a fun winter project this year.

    I like the black too but some of paint was following tearing and didn't look clean so I figure do a paint job and add few upgrade parts.

    I was thinking about making something pop out in the front since its a open space at the moment. i'll be add pictures of the case and what it looks like before I add the rest of the compartments.

    So far - looking good. Did you say what the mobo and cpu you were going to go with?
    I feel certain you were going to run 2 x 1050ti for GPUs

    As the time is set in now and at my age I would just go with OD Green with a few stars.
    Man has the US Army Field Uniform Changed over the last 35 Years.
    Are you by chance going to create another  for this Build?

    yea I will once everything up and running going to do some spec runs and stuff and label and then probably link that in here so everyone can see what's all in there. motherboard just something I found so it's not completely awesome. Got a really good deal on it and the power supply its just some dell off brand stuff.


     
    i have been dealing with buying a house so, I had to put a stop to this but now i have a work bench so that kinda helps out with starting up builds. might start up some side business in custom builds for computers.

    As of now no only thing change is the top cover where holes were was remove due to a heating issue. need to find another way of the cooling system down for folding. looking into liquid cooling for CPU seems to be the only thing really overheating.

    Will an AIO water cooling solution work for the CPU if there is room in the chassis

    folding does indeed produce some serious heat ;-) AIO may be the way to go like rj suggested

    Go any link suggestions? I should have some space nothing on the CPU at moment. more than likely go for liquid just on a budget at the moment.

    I went with a pair of GPU's I had to custom the board to fit the case b/c it had a mini atx in there. So right now going with 2 1050 ti at the moment. I"m going to try put this up on mod rigs when I get time. I'm looking into cooling the machine. This my permanent folding machine at the moment. As my other machine having some issues and trying to fix the problem.
