  1. Hi guys this is my first Casecon called Alphatier I am from germany and all typos ar for your Entertainment XD but i try my best. The name Alphatier is because of the two massive Alphacool NexXxoS Monsta 180mm Triple Radiators. They are the biggest Radiators Alphacool offers. I have build the case around them. There is no Case wehre these Monsters fit so i had to build one. Alphacool Germany and hardwarmax.net helped me out with massively the Watercooling Components so a BIG THANK YOU to them. Without them i would not be able to afford a Projekt like that. The concept of this whole Build is to create an open unique PC Case that is practical an can handle any Hardware you throw at it. I just cant see BIG BLACK BOXES anymore. The goal ist to create a mostly passive ultra silent PC . I also build the whole thing at home, basically in my room with pretty basic tools and materials that everybody can buy in the local hardware store. I did this on purpose to inspire people who think they can not do nothing cool because they do not have a whole workshop. This is how it looks right now but still a lot to do i will update this pic like i progress.
  2. It’s time for DDCM to start the next project! So… I present to you, DDCM Desk! Unique. Simple. Powerful. We will start by thanking our sponsors that have partnered with us to make this project a reality! First, we start with ModMyMods.com(MMM), who partnered with DDCM for our last mod, Project: Military Tech. They have continued their support and I’m very excited that they are coming onboard. Second, we welcome a new partner with DDCM, Alphacool! After hearing about our project and about PMT, they were happy to join MMM in supporting this project. Project background: Inspired after I saw several majestic works of PC art and the need to replace my old desk. My old desk was clunky, super heavy, and only provided a cabinet with limited airflow for the storage of my modded PC, Night Shark. After great PC desks like L3p D3sk by Peter Brands and Project Alternate by DeBlow came into the spotlight, I began to contemplate ways to own such a unique piece of modding mastery. As I have always been a fan of the non conventional builds, thus became the challenge of making one my own. Now that my workshop can handle this sized project and I gave away my old desk to a local gamer, the stage is set to begin my own approach to the PC Desk culture. It has been a long time since I have created something for my personal use and very excited about the prospect of recording/editing content on this new desk. So kick back relax and enjoy this journey with me as I work to create this unique creation. Let me know what you think and I’m always open to hear suggestions or other’s experience with similar projects. Our “final” renders. I only say that in quotes because the renders have the desk attached to my wife’s craft desk. With a possible move in the near future, I will most likely make it a free-standing desk instead.

  4. Hi all. Project Sofia came to light one day when I was watching Sofia The First on tv with my 4 year old daughter. One of those grab a coffee and chill for 5 minute times. I was already in talks with Antec uk on a project,myself and my fiancée own a few antec cases.media centre and my personal build. Whilst watching the kids show with my daughter,the colour theme and build came to life. Something small,clean lines,elegant, like Sofia in the tv show,and it had to have a wow factor on the colour scheme. So I passed my plans on to Antec,and the green light was given.

  6. This build started out as a replacement for my SR-2 build that I parted out last year. During the part out I traded some of the parts for a Rosewill Blackhawk Ultra. The Blackhawk Ultra shares the basic chassis design with the Xigmatek Elysium, and the Enermax Fulmo GT. First off this case is HUGE. Room for 4 5.25" devices, and 10 yes 10 3.5" hard drives. It also has support for up to a 360mm or 420mm radiator in the top out of the box. Which is really nice IMO. Well lets get to it. Current hardware list (subject to change): Motherboard: EVGA P67 FTW CPU: Intel 2600K GPU's: Undecided (originally was going to go with 660TI's) Memory: Undecided PSU: EVGA NEX 1000W platinum or not yet released 1300W GPU blocks: Alphacool CPU Block: Alphacool NexXxoS XP3 Radiators: Alphacool NexXxoS UT60 420mm, and Monsta 280mm Reservoir: Alphacool RePack quad DDC dual 5.25" bay res Pumps: Koolance PMP 400 Fans: Rosewill Hyperborea 140mm (highest static pressure 140mm fan I could find) Cable Extensions: Made by a good friend {uZa}DOA in black widow para-chord I'll start with the original pics and then move into the current state. Stock boring case: All in all not a horrible case. Just too boring for me. For size reference, this is my 1 1/2 year old and 5 year old modeling the case: A shot of the inside holding the E-ATX P67 FTW motherboard. I honestly think that my kids could curl up inside this thing. But I don't think that the inside is "open" enough. So I set out to removed some excess metal. The hardrive bays are ugly and a little overkill for me. I'm not going to be running a server in this chassis so out they come: It was about 16 rivets in total and a couple were a pain to get out because of where they put them. But the final result is a wide open space: Now I know my kids could fit in there. I then set out to figure out what options I had for radiators. Once it's all done There will be enough hardware in here to heat a small house. I already knew that a 420 was the max in the top due to the top panel and the way it fits together. And in stock form a single 140mm could fit on the bottom and the back. And I also knew that there was no way I was running any radiators outside the case. So I did a just for fun test fit and found if I really wanted I could have fit a 560mm rad in the bottom as long as the bottom tank was short: The down side to that was the PSU would go on the top and that would knock me down to a max 140mm rad up there. So a 420mm was going in the top. Then because I removed the front drive cages that opened my up to two 140mm fans. Knowing that I wanted maximum cooling but I was trying to stay close to the depth of the 5.25" drive bays I decided to stack two of the Alphacool XT45 280mm rads. And yes I know that it isn't the most efficient setup, but it let me fit the most rad surface area in the space that I wanted. Here is the pic of the setup: Here is the setup with a 140mm fan on it: And here it is installed in the case: Plenty of room top and bottom. There was going to be a couple of drain ports drilled into the bottom but since I did this Alphacool released the Monsta radiators. Now I'm pretty sure I'll sell these and switch it over to a single Monsta 280mm radiator to cut down on one set of fans and also cut down on a little bit of plumbing. I also got the top 420mm radiator and decided I was going to do a push pull configuration with the fans. But since I went with the 60mm thick UT60 radiator space between the radiator and the fans inside the case was at a premium. See here: So whats a guy to do? well lets put the pull fans on the outside of the case: Problem solved... Or is it? Well that won't work. There are a set of supports for the top panel right where the fans go. So out come my trusty cutters and bam: We have fan clearance: And there is still plenty of room in the 5.25" bays for a fan controller of another small bay device. But not so much on the back of the case.

  8. PROLOGUE I recently acquired a Cooler Master HAF XB case from a friend. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I have several builds currently in the works and I wasn't sure I wanted to take another one on, at this time. However, after having the case in my possession for a few short days, I changed my mind. The more I studied the case, the more ideas came to mind. I knew I wanted to do something different with this case. I also wanted to try some techniques that I haven't used before. I wanted to do a completely different theme then any of the other builds I've done before. I wanted something supernatural.

  9. Hello everyone, let me take a moment to introduce myself. I am known by Sebar on the forums and have started a nice little project called PirateMod to keep track of my builds and other computer/modding related things I do. I am calling this mod project "Close Quarters" because I will be cramming in two 280mm Alphacool radiators into a Corsair 350D mATX case and as you can imagine space will be very tight inside the case. I am still undecided on a color scheme for this build but I have narrowed it down to either Jade and Copper of Black and Copper. This mod will feature a full copper faceplate for the 350D and 10 mm copper tubing inside the case. The hardware that will be going into the case is as follows: Intel 2600K CPUAsus Maximus IV Gene Z Gen 3Corsair Vengeance low profile RAMUndecided on final video Card, currently I have an MSI R6950 but think I will need to replace this with a short PCB cardCorsair AX850 PSUKingston HyperX SSD (120GB)Water cooling components includeAlphacool XT45 280 mm radiatorAlphacool UT60 280 mm radiatorAlphacool XP3 light CPU water blockSwiftech MCP655 pump with Bitspower mod kit and D5 Mod Pump Top V2Black acetyl push fittings for 10 mm OD rigid tubingBitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 80 or 150 depending on space available.Now for the good stuff. Unboxing the 350D. Here are some initial glamour shots. Here are some teardown pictures. I may end up using this MNPCTECH 280 rad grill I got from Bill Owen. Here I am removing the brushed aluminum from the front panel. Here is the parts order that I received from Performance PCS. I was messing around in Blender and came up with a couple rough renderings of the case in Black and in Jade. Bull3t hooked me up with some excellent renders. Now it is time for the real modding to begin. As you can imagine 45 mm and 60 mm 280 mm radiators will not fit inside this case without some modification. The first thing that had to go was the 5.25 in drive days. This allowed me to get the UT60 in the front but the top radiation was just too thick to allow me to install fans inside the case. Here is a test fit with both rads, motherboard, and my bench PSU. I had to reposition the motherboard to allow for the top mounted rad and fans. I lose the top PCI mounting point on the case but since this case has 5 PCI slots and I only really need 4 that is not a big deal. I cut a spare PCI cover to fill in the gap left in the IO cutout after moving the motherboard down. I still have to drill and tap holes for the motherboard standoffs to mount the motherboard.
  10. Hi guys i'm looking for compression fittings for EK-Tube ZMT, i want tygon but, in Mexico only sell EK, Swiftech and XSPC with official reseller. My cousin will go to USA the next month and he return in plane, then, he can buy only the fittings. Which do you recommend or think is the best option for $7 or under per fitting? Fittings size (3/8-5/8).

I have also been following MNPCTech on Youtube for quite a while. And what better way to introduce myself than a build log.... :D This is a build I did in spring 2013. Its eventual purpose will be to serve as our HTPC, a file and media server and it will do some computing for BOINC. Until my other build is up and running, it is currently serving as my personal rig though. Some of you may be familiar with it. The basic concept: Replace the back panel of the R4 with a custom one in order to fit a 360 radiator back there (couldn't do it in the front: HDDs). Also, the PSU has been relocated to the front. The End Result I hope this image size works for you guys, otherwise please let me know and I can switch to a different resolution. (click image for full res) The Name Zwieback Exceeding Useful Specifications. Because: Why not? Zwieback is a hilarious word IMO, and in English doubly so (I don't know why I think that, I just do.) I have been naming my rigs after Greek deities ever since I played the original Deus Ex (still love that game). I also might have a slight weakness for Greek mythology in general...
