Hello and welcome everyone at the next project. This project is something what I was waiting for looong time :-D Almost one year but here it is! The awesome Hex Gear R40 from. Big thanks goes to Nate & Hans for developing this case and for supporting me with it.
This project is girl themed - Hello Kitty, so white and pink are the main colors
Some parts of the case have to be redesigned little bit. These new parts will be laser cutted. Cables from PSU will be cutted to exact length and sleeved. Overall alignment of appearance and of course the installation of a water loop on the graphics cards and CPU.
▪ Intel i5 6600K
▪ ASUS GENE VIII
▪ ASUS STRIX GTX 970 SLI
▪ G.SKill TridentZ 32 gigabytes 3200MHz Black
▪ Be Quiet! Dark Power Pro 11
▪ Be Quiet! Silent Wings 3
▪ Hex GearR40 Case
*Just for info why 970 SLI. Graphics and almost all HW was arranged long before the release 10xx. + 970 are not so long
For more info about case, or for R80 ATX version visit the HexGear website
Find a nice mATX motherboard that holds such cooling, it is very hard and therefore also for me was the clear choice the beautiful R40.
Base of the case holds four aluminum profiles, which have a combined 3 kg. The entire case then 15 kg. Case has soooo much advantages and possibilities. Mainly possibility of placing 240 and 360 radiators.
Progress so far is none, but as I said, I have a case at home, and all the hardware. I will add more very soon! I will start with putting case together because it comes flat packed.
I already started with putting it together
