My entry in Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2018 #CMWS18 this time is a stealth build. NIGHTHAWK is a scratch build with a theme of the famous Stealth Fighter plane Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk.

Being a big fan of stealth fighter plans, my idea this time is to make a open frame PC Case build with a Lockheed F-117 Nighthawk fuselage on top.

First making the Nighthawk fuselage.

A rough parts layout. Checking how the whole build will look like.

UPDATE : 12 April 2018

Nighthawk fuselage structure done. Also made the case back frame / motherboard tray

UPDATE : 16 April 2018

First coat of filler and primer applied, and also done some sanding. Radiator mount and motherboard screw posts installed.

UPDATE : 24 April 2018

Test fit of Nighthawk build after first paint coat. Looks good for now... but lot of finishing work will be coming soon.

UPDATE : 04 May 2018

Work under progress for the Nighthawk build waiting for parts. Thanks @AMD India for supporting.

UPDATE : 05 May 2018

Now the Nighthawk Build is powered by AMD Ryzen Threadripper CPU.

UPDATE : 17 May 2018

Still waiting for parts to arrive for the Nighthawk Build.

Meanwhile working on cable sleeving.

UPDATE : 22 May 2018

ASUS PRIME X399-A motherboard arrived for the Nighthawk Build. Now can start installing parts together.

Modified AMD RX Vega 56 GPU to Custom Liquid cooled AMD RX Vega 64 (Flashed). Dual BIOS… can easily switch between Vega 56 and Vega 64.

UPDATE : 28 May 2018
