Description

This was our first machine for sale, it was first completed using a modded Raijintek Metis case and SFX power supply and then was purchased by a customer in the Fractal Design Nano S case.

We used an SFX PSU in the Metis case so that we could fit the full-length GTX 960 4GB, this machine benchmarked very well pushing an average 59 FPS in Battlefield 4 (that was before the Xbox DVR fix) on ultra settings in Full-HD.

The modded Metis case did very well at keeping the CPU and GPU cool, and it was an absolutely beautiful anodised aluminium red.

We experimented with adding some custom skins, but no one seemed interested in this brilliant little case, preferring the very nice but not nearly as pretty Fractal Design version.

Sadly with the advent of the GTX 1050, GTX 960's disappeared, which is a shame as the 4GB version gave the GTX 1050ti a run for its money and was much cheaper. We now have the Ascension II with an RX 470 that is quite a bit more powerful than this machine but is more expensive.

Nice build, I did a Metis build also, that is very similar. I don't see any modding of your case. What was it? Do you have more pictures?

I'll get some more pictures up soon, when I say modded I mean not factory. Got to keep the warranty on commercial machines.

I updated the images, one shows the interior. Basically, I reversed the airflow from stock, used an SFX PSU instead of an ATX PSU so I could get a full-length GPU in.

Awesome, that is the same air flow I went with too! Thanks for the update and build on!

So this is not what was sold? I'm surprised the customer didn't like this. It looks great.

The custom skins on the case, are they just Adobe Illustrator or Photo Shop?

Yeah, I still have the case. The artwork is vehicle quality vinyl wrap. They are photos, Edited for color balance and stuff but the wrap is on the case.

Very cool. I like that case. I'd wager you'll sell the case as it is. Looks great. I used a blue one for my daughter's college pc last month. I went ahead and modified her case by flipping the motherboard tray and cutting a porthole for a lower intake fan. I'm ok with voiding my personal warranty. Surprisingly good looking anodized case.

It's Nuka-Cola though. It's Fallout themed.

What did it sell for? Just curious. It's a work of art.

We charge an extra $100 aud for the artwork. But no one purchased this case. I moved the innards to a Fractal Design Nano S that a customer purchased. I still have the case, we would sell it if someone wanted it in a new build. This was mostly done for fun and.for promotion.

How much would it be to just buy the case itself? If that's an option.
