AMG/Benz Project

After the succes with my Audi E-tron build I was contacted by an AMG/Benz fan that would loved to have a AMG themed mini-Atx build.
Luckily I still had a Steiger Dynamics Maven case that I wanted to MOD so the timing was perfect. After a few hours brainstorming I figured out wat i was planning to do and where to put what. The main goal was to get all high-end hardware inside the case and water cool it... with as much cooling capacity i can get. Ofcource Alphacool (again) came to the rescue and provided me all the cooling components i needed. I had a great idea to combine 4 small 3*80mm radiators in serie with push-pull fans front air intake config. On top of the rads I would mount the 8mm thick edge led light mobo tray and in front i had space to put the res/pump combo. With all this layout changing i had to redesign the back panel completely in orde to keep everything accessible. I also used some very special space tubing to match the race car theme and because I am the only modder out there that uses these cool tubing. I had them made special with G1/4 tread and 360 degree rotatable fitting. They are made out of stainless steel and therefore don't interact with any kind of metal inside the loop. They come in custom length in every 10cm and are very easy to bend bij hand and can be re-bend 100 times without breaking. They also have a small passive cooling feature if they have some airflow around. Further I 3D printed the details in the front and made a laser cut top cover with the AMG logo engraved and some air intake spoilers.
Ones again the community loved the outcome and like always you have Beemer lovers that hated it haha Emoji.... cheers bro's
