  1. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/d9JGpG Good afternoon my fellow enthusiasts! We are COMPLETE!!! Couldn’t be a happier feeling than a working mod. First, we need to clean and prep our trusty ol’ Phenom II Then we can slap on some Arctic MX-4 paste in preparation to install that beastly Freezer eSports Duo cooler ❤️ Cooler installed with our custom AM3 mounts, nice and snug Drives are in and mounted! That cooler is so over kill…. But cable management for the win! Tip of the Day…. Label those drives! Getting Ubuntu server installed We are up and running! Time to get PLEX set up so the family stops bugging me for movie access *laughs* That’s it until we are up and fully running with our RAID and software flying high! Otherwise we are switching gears to work on our Honda Prelude PC mod!
  2. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/d9JGpG Good morning fellow modders! So lets get another update on Node Zero and get the PSU shroud created! We first found our piece of material and cut and bent it into shape. Then test fit it with the HDD cages. Then cutting the holes for the grommets was easy as 1..2…..3 Then a dash of paint… and presto! Time to hide those nasty cables. And…. bam! Power cables managed and look at all that SATA power just sitting there waiting to be utilized. Next time we install the HDD cages and get this bad boy up and running!!
  3. Haha, I've never dove into that much cooling need. But I definitely agree they give plenty of space!
  4. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/d9JGpG Good morning fellow modders and world takers! We have begun the work on Node Zero! First we need to get to painting…. the handles specifically. Use that good ol’ Krylon in damn that’s bright yellow! Getting that PSU in place…. Just an old Raidmax 500w, but it works well and keeps steady power for my drives! I love how this case has the ability to use 2 PSUs Time to install these beautiful yellow Arctic fans! 6 fans to keep air moving! It’s a good start… but we need to get our sponsors and designs cut and placed! Sooo…. We requested the Freezer 34 Duo knowing that it’s only AM4 compatible. So of course what we need to do is fabricate and mod our own solution yes? Annnnd…. Finished. Just needs a coat of paint =D Thanks for tuning in guys! Keep an eye out for more updates soon. Much love! ❤️
  5. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/pkKk29 What is up my friends and fellow PC gurus! Just wanted to take a post to give a huge thanks to our sponsors! First off, we have Thermaltake who has been gracious enough to send not only the Commander 34 case, but all the watercooling gear we need and the power to make it all work. Moving on, we come to EVGA. They were kind enough to send over a EVGA GeForce GTX 1070 to go with our EVGA FTW Z390 board. Third, we come to our partners over at ModMyMods! They are sending us a Alphacool block for the 1070 and some misc modding materials and cables. And last but certainly not least, we are proud to announce that ArtMods will be providing the cruicial 3D printed parts to make this build a reality! Am super excited as he is an incredible fabricator and can paint realistic designs on almost anything! In other news, below are two video links. The first is our hardware reveal for the mod and the second is our case review on the Commander C34 case! Don’t forget to sub to the channel to not miss out on the other reviews coming soon. #PreludePC Hardware Reveal(Well...most of it) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rn_N3yAcxaU Thermaltake Commander C34 Case Review https://youtu.be/MVJv9P4pvb4 (Video goes live June 19th at Noon PST) Thanks for sticking with us so far! Can’t wait to get you more content soon!
  6. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/d9JGpG What is up my fellow modders! Let me introduce you to our next project Node Zero! BACKGROUND Node Zero was conceptualized as our move back home on the west coast meant leaving our staircase server hub back in Tennessee. Now that I’ve been back home in NV for the past year, I have been missing not only our PLEX and Gaming servers, but our backups and our RAID 5 system. Because of this, I started brainstorming a new case to house our server hardware, something that could handle many HDDs. After searching around, I just didn’t like what I saw and didn’t want to go slim server rack(and of course money issues prevents a couple grand for a server) So we are replacing this case with a Nanoxia Rexgear Hydra 2 Mining case, and modding it to accept up to 12 HDDs and an SSD or two. OLD SERVER CASE HYDRA 2 CONCEPT HYDRA 2 CASE(Stock Photos) Here in this YouTube video we unbox the Arctic cooling gear and the Nanoxia HDD bays. Also has hardware going into our Honda Prelude PC mod. https://youtu.be/xiwT1sEO_3Y Have a wonderful day and I hope you are excited as I am to see this build come together!!!
  7. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/pkKk29 Good to see you all again! We have begun our next mod!!!!! Are you as excited as I am? Let me know what you think and drop me a response below. BACKGROUND As someone who loves computer modding, I actually enjoy working on cars as well. My current project vehicle is a 2000 Honda Prelude. So naturally when I saw that Thermaltake’s new Commander 34 case looks like the honda emblem, I knew what I had to do. I’m here to present to you our latest sponsored build, “Prelude PC” BUILD PLAN In regards to modding the case itself, we won’t be doing too much other than making the cooling components work. However with some creative 3D printing, vinyl work and paint. We plan on dropping a system into the case that will be recognizable to any Honda enthusiast. 3D Prints H22A Engine Turbo Pump Cover Honda Emblem Prelude badge Oil Catch Can PARTS ARRIVING!! Unboxing video of some of our sponsored parts! 2 separate builds in this unboxing…. https://youtu.be/xiwT1sEO_3Y That’s our plan! I hope I have hyped you up for this mod!
  8. It wouldn't be very comfortable... if you had to sit at it.... but works great as a standing desk ;)
  9. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Good morning all my lovely people! How about a quick update to share our review of the Nanoxia CoolForce case that we modded for this project! Solid intro case with a beautiful smoked tempered glass side panel. YouTube Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YV3JsLuxLdE As always! Be yourself, be unique!
  10. Thanks Mos! I have a pic to show you once I get them unpacked, but got a small set of nice hand planes. I saw them and thought of you. Lady gave them to me for free with a load of other hardware, fasteners, tools that I got for $30. I'm going back to clear out more hardware/lumber/sheet metal as she's prepping to sell her house after her husband passed a year ago. Even getting my hands on an older table saw for $10 ?
  11. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Good morning all my lovely people! I’m pleased to announce that #MomsMod is COMPLETE!! So let’s begin….. We start off first with the Gamdias peripherals, the Ares Keyboard and the Hades Mouse. Mask and paint time. Switching over to the Nanoxia CoolForce 140mm fans, we mask the frame off so we can get the fans painted purple! After a day of letting the paint dry, we are ready to start assembling the case. So far so good! That vinyl looks awesome! But now we need the hardware…. Let’s look at the tragic tower she has been using…… all that dust! YUCK! Rip the hardware out, salvage what’s acceptable, then get that Intel motherboard installed in the Nanoxia CoolForce1 case. Now it’s time to drop in an upgraded air cooler that might just do a bit better than her other one… That cable management……. Just don’t look at the backside I told you not to look! But…. we can fix it with these lovely Nanoxia CoolForce combs!!! Boom! Build is complete! One Lavender Everquest case mod complete!! Now what…….?!?! Oh right, need to address that old desk mess situation…. And ta-da! Now she not only has a setup worth showing off, but she’s got some extra organization for all her craft business And here’s an obligatory photo of me training the next generation of modders! My 3 year old diligently putting screws into the motherboard tray while watching YouTube on her tablet. As always, thanks for joining us on this journey and keep modding!!
  12. Haha just the one sandwhich bag of seeds, and I stand at my desk watching some anime that I can binge watch without paying close attention lol
  13. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Gooooood morning everyone! Did you miss me? Sorry about the long pause between updates, but I wanted to bring you some of the custom sleeving we are doing for the build. We’ve been on hiatus waiting for the weather to turn pleasant again so I can begin painting components. But we began sleeving……. And like all tedious tasks, sunflower seeds are a must to increase concentration! Starting with the 24 Pin we got our purple camo cables in place. Final shots of our 24 pin, absolutely loving the boldness of these Nanoxia cable combs! After the 24 pin was done, we switched gears and made our 8 pin EPS connector as well. Again I apologize about such a long delay in updates, hopefully as this winter is turning to spring I will have more to update soon!! As always…. Keep modding!
  14. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Hey everyone! Time for a long overdue update! Let’s make this a big one! First I’d like to welcome aboard our newest sponsor GAMDIAS! Who provided a mouse and mouse mat. Also, our streaming partner @SomeRandomChicx from Twitch who provided the matching GAMDIAS keyboard! To continue with materials for this build, we ordered some sleeving to make our custom extensions from MainFrame Customs! Now to get onto what you came for….. the case modding. We unboxed the case and got straight to work. First, we flipped the optical cages. Then took the case apart and reassembled it in a reverse ATX configuration. Next to strengthen the motherboard tray to finalize the mod. The hardest part was making the front mesh back up in a way that still looked normal-ish Our temporary pile of parts while we took the case apart. Our custom vinyl stickers! They will pop nicely against the black case! Until the next update, Happy Modding! Mod Components: Case: Nanoxia CoolForce1 Fans: Nanoxia CoolForce 120/140mm Keyboard: GAMDIAS Ares P1 Mouse: GAMDIAS Hades Gaming Mat: GAMDIAS NYX
