  1. Today, I started working on the case. firstly I had to drill the rivet. For that, i am using a standard power drill and a 1/8 Cobalt drill bit. When you are drilling rivet with this kind of bit, i suggest starting slow at low RPM. Dont apply too much pressure, let the bit tip do the job. It bend and break easily, take your time! Alright so lets start drilling, this case doesnt have many rivet so it should be rather quick. If you start slowly at low RPM, without excessive pressure, it is very easy. However, if you apply pressure on the rivet, it might just turn with the bit and you will waste much more time. Remember, Let the bit tip do the job! Once you are done drilling all the rivet on the case, it should look like that! duh And the bit picture indeed :) The case is now disassembled, so i can start modding it, the sanding will come soon as well. Thanks for watching and happy modding! Back to Index
  2. Alright, Motherboard unboxing! I am particularly pumped about this one as i really wanted a Gigabyte G1 Sniper M3 since a long time. Well the day has come, here it is! The box is pretty badass, but thats just a box so lets move on :) Printed on the back, you can see the main feature of the board. I will list you the most important but if you want to know more about the board, just let me know, feel free to ask question and i will get back to you as soon as possible!

Done with the boring stuff, Promise! Time for some cool pictures :D Ive been waited for that moment, lets open the box :D In the box, you can find the standard stuff: user manual, sli connector, sata cable AND *Drum Rolls* Thats right! Some pretty cool decals, i am not gonna use them for this project but its still nice to have them! Also, they gave me a super huge poster, but that is for another update :D Now the board, itself!!! Honestly it was greatly packaged and thats how we like it! Between these two picture, i removed the bag ><' My first impression was: ''Oh yeah babe'' Then i started to take better picture, at least i tried! And one more! I have to say, i am pretty happy with this board so far, even if i cant SLI it in that case. Plus. it look exactly like in my dreams :) Oh well, it is going straigh back in his box as i still have a lot to do before even thinking powering it. Thanks for watching my motherboard unboxing and if you have any question, feel free to ask them, i will get back to you as soon as possible! Back to Index
  3. Alright, time for a little unboxing! I will try to keep it short and non boring :) First as you can see, the case arrived very well packaged between foam and that is pretty much a standard in the industry now a days. After removing the shipping protection, i immediately fell in love with the little case. I was already able to feel the quality of the thing, which is actually top notch. Im not impressed, it is SilverStone after all, and without any doubt, they do make quality stuff. This side has no window, vent hole, nothing. Just like the other side in fact. Thats fine, i prefer blank canvas! I have huge plan for both side :) For the top, the whole concept is Okay i guess, the fan grill/dust filter is held with small magnet, well actually it is held with tape but of course im going to change this, it is on the menu, its getting modded :) *removing tape* The front is beautiful, simple yet effective. The usual stuff in the front of course, USB 3.0 x 2, Audio, Mic, i will list the specs soon. The two 5.25 bay is for my dual bay res/pump combo, its perfect - i dont need more. Also as you can see there's a 3.5 bay at the bottom, i will put a fan controller in there. I found some pretty device for it! The start and reset switch are not cheap, seriously, you can feel it. Finally the fan filter ''inside'' the front itself is easily removable, you literally push on it trought the case. Once again, the back is rather simple, probably why i initially liked this case, simple yet beautiful. As you can see now the pci slot are? Yes inverted! Thats one of these little cool case made upside down. This should be interesting for sure! Ok so 4 PCI slot, which mean you could SLI/Xfire. Still on the back, PSU goes on the top in a kind of ''shroud'' which i actually like. For the back fan: room for a 120mm, maybe 140mm we will know very soon :) Inside the case, its packed of feature, seriously theres a tons of them, i am even remvoving some! Heres the Special features: Includes one 180mm Air Penetrator fan for positive pressure cooling Removable motherboard tray and top panel Quick access filters to prevent dust buildup Convenient wire and cable routing pathways Adjustable holder for large CPU coolers Motherboard back plate opening behind CPU area for quick cooler assembly Impressive storage capacity up to five 3.5" hard drives and one 2.5" drive And the specifications while we are at it :) Model No: SST-TJ08-E(black) Material: Aluminum front panel, steel body Motherboard: Micro-ATX, DTX, Mini-ITX Drive Bay: External 5.25" x 2, 3.5" x 1 (compatible with one 3.5” hard drive) Internal: 3.5" x 4 , 2.5” x1 Cooling System: Front 1 x 180mm AP181 intake fan, 700/1200rpm, 18/34dBA (backwards compatible with 140mm fan) Rear: 1 x 120mm fan slot (option) Expansion Slot: 4 Front I/O Port: USB 3.0 x 2 (backwards compatible with USB 2.0) Audio: x 1 MIC: x 1 Power Supply: 1 x optional standard PS2(ATX) up to 160mm Expansion Card: Compatible up to 13.25” long*, width restriction-6.69" Limitation of CPU cooler: 165mm Limitation of PSU: 160mm (recommended), 180mm (maximum) Net Weight: 5.3 kg Dimension: 210mm(W) x 374mm(H) x 385mm(D), 30.2 liters Extra: Support two Kensington locks I also found these remarks while messing on Silverstone website: 1. The maximum recommended combined depth for PSU and optical drive is 382mm plus 20mm room for connectors. We recommend the largest PSU to be no greater than 160mm deep (e.g. ST1000-P) 2. Please install into expansion slots 3 and 4 for graphics card with extension bracket and length of 13.3” Case is now mostly striped, ready to be modded :) As planned so far, the whole thing will be powdercoated very soon. Top has been removed, which was fairly easy. Took me about 30sec only, couple screw and Voila. The top itself, which will have some little modification. Okay so, next on the menu will be the first mod, probably the side windows and also some sleeving, maybe another unboxing between that, so stay tuned, i hope you like this little pearl as much as i do and thanks for watching my unboxing. Please let me know what you think! Back to Index
