  1. Thermaltake Case Mod Invitational Build: http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/43337-australia-corey-gregory/ Hello everyone and welcome to my build log. Firstly I would love to start by introducing myself. My Name is Corey Gregory and I go by the modding name 'Imfaceroll Gaming'. I am 22 years old from Australia. By day I work in the engineering fields of Surveying. My main hobby's are obviously PC Modding as well as Sports and Gaming. I like to think of myself as being an average Joe trying to achieve his goals. My PC Modding life started 18 months ago with my first pc being a desk pc. Since then I have gone on to build a number of builds for displays at events like PAX. My PC building grew into a passion and having no access to 3D printers, Lathe and CNC machines has really helped me develop skills which have all been self taught with basic hand tools. 'If you do not give it ago you will not achieve' I live by this philosophy, something may look difficult to do but I encourage people to have ago and strive to achieve. As you can see from the banner I am heading towards the SI-FI side of things and in particular Star Wars. I didn't want to revile too much to begin with so I feel a teaser banner is certainly fitting for this PC. Please feel free to have a guess =) It is a privilege to work along side these top modders and I thank Thermaltake and all Partners for making this event possible. I will be video logging Progress here: www.youtube.com/imfacerollpcgaming and posting photos on Facebook as well as this thread www.facebook.com/imfacerollgaming Specs: Asus ROG Maximus VIII Forumla Motherboard Intel Core i5 6600K Asus GeForce GTX 980 Strix x2 Samsung 950 Pro M.2 256gb Avexir Red Tesla 16gb 2666mhz Thermaltake Toughpower DPS RGB 1250w Thermaltake Liquid Cooling

  3. EK announced a new CPU block today, the Supremacy MX. Available for around $50, the Supremacy MX is aimed at the giving you peak performance for your money. The design features a copper cold plate with the top of the block constructed out of ABS. The top of the block also has an insert plate, a potential accent piece for modding. No word on release date in EKWB's press release.
  4. Hi everyone! I wanted the opinion of this forum to see whether my dream of a custom hardline water cooling in my tower is feasible. I currently have an Antec 300 case with the hopes of water cooling my cpu (fx-6100) and dual gpu (msi r9 280x). From reading the forums, it looks like I'm going to need at least two radiators to sufficiently cool these units.. Do you guys think I have enough space to play with in this case? Or should I get a new case entirely? If so, what case do you guys suggest? Fairly new to the concept of water cooling... please excuse my newbie-ness. Thank you!
  5. EK's new cooling kit for Gigabyte's X99 series motherboards isn't revolutionary but it's something I haven't seen from the company before (more experienced custom coolers jump in here). The kit consists of a pretty standard MOSFET water cooling block and a passive cooler for the southbridge (PCH). Embracing EK's circle design that can be found on the rest of the company's wide array of blocks, the PCH cooler design opts to leave out a few of the circles for presumably more air circulation. On a personal level, while I love the idea of custom heat sinks to match the rest of your blocks, I would have preferred a design with the material left in. What do you guys think? The kit, EK-FB KIT GA X99 LE, comes in at around $75 state side.

  6. Hello everyone, This worklog contains two special projects respectively: Ultimate White - modder Tombino- Sharingan - modder C3r34L K1Ll3rs The reason why we introduce a single worklog is because we are united by 'EXTREME MODDING FACTORY, which is a project born from a shared passion for modding and then resulted in a great deal of work amicizia.Ci completely customized materials such as steel, aluminum, copper, wood and plexiglass and the like and we can work with the aid of milling machines, CNC or laser cutting. The only limit to our work is the imagination, anything you can think of just design it and draw it and in the end you create. These projects have been completed recently, but we are making sweeping changes in both of which we will keep you updated as more !!! Now photos: Ultimate White - https://plus.google.com/u/1/photos/110182946646640668569/albums/6043658025353985425 Sharingan - https://plus.google.com/u/1/photos/110182946646640668569/albums/6043667785107437153 Look forward to your comments and criticism, but in any case, stay tuned because there will be many new features! Thanks to all Tombino- and C3r34L K1Ll3rs
  7. Greetings from the Dirty South PC Mods shop once again Mad Modding Monkeys This time I am going to be working on a Tribute build to Superman in Classic Colors. First off I would like to thank my Sponsors without their generosity my builds would not be anywhere near as awesome. http://www.icemodz.com/ https://www.facebook.com/Icesleeve https://www.facebook.com/tekbydesign http://www.lepatek.com/eng/ http://www.enermax.com/ Be sure and swing by their respective sites and FB pages to check out all the Killer Gear they have to make your RIG look Beast!!!! Here is a look at the Hardware that is going to be going into our build. CPU - Intel i5 3470 3.2ghz Quad-core /w Bitspower ICE Blue CPU Block Mobo - Biostar TZ77XE4(Custom Painted Blue Heatsinks, and Di-Noc) Ram - G.Skill Ripjaws 2133mhz DDR3 4 x 4Gb /w Bitspower Universal Ram Block kit Blue/Blue SSD - SANDISK 120Gb SATA III SSD PSU - LEPA MaxBron 700Watt 80+ Bronze certified RAD - XSPC 360mm Slim High Performance, Black Ice 360mm X-Flow Rad, XSPC 120mm Pump - XSPC D5 Vario /w Bitspower Mod kit(Blue) & PPC's Custom Pump Top Fittings - Primochill Ghost Compression 1/2" x 3/4" as well as a few Monsoon 3/4" 90-Deg rotary fittings Res - Bitspower 40mm tube Res Tubing - Primochill 1/2" x 3/4" tubing GPU - EVGA GTX 660Ti 2Gb & PNY GTX 660Ti (SLI) Fans - Enermax T.B. Vegas Trio 9 x 120mm, 1 x 180/200mm T.B. Apollish Blue and 1 x 140mm T.B. Apollish Blue(PSU Fan swap) So lets get this Build started. First off we did a live unboxing http://www.twitch.tv/dirtysouthpcmods/b/481331321 Then we Drilled out the Rivets for the I/O Plate & Cut a hole in the bottom of the Case to mount our XSPC 360mm Rad http://www.twitch.tv/dirtysouthpcmods/b/481499486 Here is a look at what it looks like. Perfect Fit!!!!!!!!! Then we painted the Chassis RED We then Painted the Chassis Red The Rad and I/O Plate Yellow Well thats it so far. Need to get some more paint. Be back later. Be sure to check out our weekly Live mod show every Wed 10am-2pm http://www.twitch.tv/dirtysouthpcmods Where was I ahh yes. Marking up the Side panels, and the Top panel for windows. Got them cut out and hung up for paint. Now I'm not going to lie this was a bit late after a long day. So my cuts weren't all that strait. Time to bust out the Grinder with a Flapper Wheel so these will have to re-painted. Currently I am at odds with keeping the Mobo tray and painting it. Or replacing the whole thing with 1/8 clear acrylic.However 1/8" acrylic tends to bow under weight. (That's why I usually use it for Windows.) Just hoping once I get the board on the Acrylic it will stiffen it up. Guess there is only one way to find out huh. Ok where was I ahh yes. Well decided to Paint the Mobo tray. Painted the Front Panel and Xigmatek GPU Coolers Handel and 5.25" bay covers Painted the Mesh Red...Looking good We were going to cut the top and put a window but with the release of a new Product by Enermax we have decided to leave it intact. Paint is done..Just waiting for the last bits to dry. Alright now that the Paint is done. It's time to see about squeezing all this hardware in here. Got the XSPC EX360mm Rad on the bottom topped off with Enermax T.B.Vegas Trio 120mm Fans. The Black Ice 360mm X-Flow Rad is mounted on the front with more Enermax T.B Vegas 120mm Fans. The Primochill CTR 240mm Res. All fitted with Monsoon Right Angle Rotary(3/4"), and Primochill Ghost Compression Fittings(1/2" x 3/4"). Got the Biostar TZ77XE4 Mobo w/ Custom Painted Heatsinks and Di-Noc Mounted to the Mobo Tray. The Bitzpower Blue ICE CPU Block and Ram Block /w Custom Di-Noc Trim. Kitted out with Monsoon Right Angle Rotary 3/4" and Primochill Ghost Compression Fittings 1/2" x 3/4" Mocking up the two GTX 260's(Thanks Angel Cruz for the sweet deal on the second card) With Xigmatek GPU Coolers(Before they were painted Blue) Whoaaaa thats a REALLY Tight fit. There is about 2mm to spare so the fans work fine. Alright now to address the stock screws. The solution Tek By Design "Proline" Button Head Fasteners(Polished) Thank you for your generous contribution to our build. Some of what will be posted next was covered in this weeks live show. http://www.twitch.tv/dirtysouthpcmods/c/3414063 Alright time to get started Modding our PSU, but first lets take a closer look at the inside. As you can see this PSU is Oozing with Quality Components Ok so first up is a Fan Swap on way to custom sleeving and paint. Stock Black Fan has got to know. Going to replace it with an Enermax T.B.Apollish 140mm in Blue Its already looking good. Just wait till I turn it on. Bazinga Now I gotta take it apart and Prep it for Paint. Well while I wait for the weather to clear up I'm going to get started on the sleeving process. Thank you Mundi from ICEMODZ for all your support. A look at all the awesome stuff from ICEMODZ. Thank you Mundi Ok so lets get started. First up the easy one Molex Next up Sata Cable. Now the Real work starts the 8 and 24-pin connectors Ok guys thats it so far Still waiting on the weather to clear up so I can paint the PSU. Right so the weather is still crappy so I'm still working on sleeving. And I'm out of Red Sleeving have to wait for more to come in. Alright While I'm waiting for the rest of my sleeving to come in Lets get busy with the rest of the PSU and a GPU upgrade instead of using 2 x GTX 260 I will be using 1 x GTX 660 Ti Tearing it apart Getting ready for its Wrapping And our 660 Ti is going to get the same treatment. Ok had a change of heart on the front panel. We ended up taking a couple pieces of clear acrylic and covered the back side with Red Vinyl. We then took some Blue Vinyl and cut out the sponsor logos with the vinyl cutter and put that on the front side of the Acrylic panel. Then we attached it to the front of the panel with 3M double sided tape. We then put one of our ICEMODZ.com Red LED's behind it and you get this effect. We did the same thing with the 3.5" hot swap bay. but with Yellow and there you have it. and of course after I have already painted the Mobo plate we got a wild hair and decided to go ahead and make a new one out of Plexi. We also decided to cut the Top panel and put a clear window on it. with a 200mm hole for our 180/200mm Enermax T.B.Apollish Fan (Blue) Look'n good Now to see about dealing with what can only be described as a Skittles Bag after it has been blown to pieces. Alright thats all I have at this time. Need to order a new Res as the Primochill CTR I already have sitting is wayyy too large. And I haven't Decided what I want to do with the GPU's yetI didn't like the Blue vinyl wrap so I ripped it off.
  8. Hey guys whats up I'm Nick other wise known as Dirty South PC Mods. Going to be working on a build for my Gamer Girl that likes Spiders. First off I would like to thank my Sponsors. http://www.bsmods.com/ http://www.icemodz.com/ Thank you for your support :D Ok so lets get this build started. Ok here is our Motherboard an ASRock Z77 Extreme 4 1155. The heat sinks didn't really go with my overall theme so we are going to paint them Pink. First I taped the Contact Points of the Heatsinks. Then we shot them with Etching Primer And then with Krylon Floresent Pink. There we go much better. Here is a look at the UV color change effect. the Pink turns Bright Orange :D Used a double sided male coupler between the Phobya 400 Pump and the Primochill CTR Like so Prepping the Fans for there Pink Doom :P Since you can't use regular spray paint on Plastic We first used Krylon Fusion in white as a primer and will be shooting the Pink over that for all the Plastic parts. The Phobya 400 Pumps is going to get the same treatment. This is the case we will be using in our build. a CoolerMaster HAF 922..We are going to be cutting a full window, Trimming the 5.25" Drive cage down from 5 slots to 2, Removing the HDD cage. And paint the Motherboard Tray, whats left of the 5.25 Drive cage, I/O plate and front panel mesh Pink. Alright and I'm back and shes Naked!!!! Time to pop some Rivets Ok we removed the IO/Expansion slot plate, Motherboard Plate, HDD cage(went in the trash) and 5.25" drive cage Some White Primer on the IO/Expansion Plate First Coat of Primer on the Mobo plate Measuring up for the Side Panel Window cut. Always use an Awl or old screwdriver thats been stripped to mark your drill holes to keep your drill from walking We wanted rounded corners so we are going to use a drill for the corners Ok most use a Dremel or a Jigsaw. I prefer my 90,000 RPM air powered cut off wheel Same this was use to trim down the 5.25" drive bat from 5 to 2 slots Let The Pinking Begin Pops shooting the second coat of Pink Alright the first set of Icemodz cables are here Here is a Link to the Unboxing Video we did for them. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JfUj9sFNxs0 Man thats a bright Pink. Alright so I ordered some Pink Di-noc and some Mirrored Pink Film for the CPU Block and the Lamptron FC-2 Fan Controller we will be using Here is the Water Block will be using for the CPU its an older OCZ Hydroflow from about 2009 Wrapped the Chrome Portion of the CPU Block in the Pink Mirrored Vinyl Got the Case riveted back together and the ASRock Z77 Board with our OCZ Block on there not too shaby!! Got a first Radiator Installed the XSPC 240mm Rad in the Front where the HDD cage Had formerly been. The Primochill 120 CTR UV Pink Res and Phobya pump in there Ok not to crazy about the Pink Mirrored Vinyl going to try the Pink Di-Noc And now for the Lamptron FC-2 There Optical DRive is receiving the same treatment And I don't like it going to tear it off and paint them to match the rest of the front panel There much better Found a cool Halloween decoration with Spiders on it and made it fit in the case. also just got the Primochill Advanced LRT Tubing UV Pink Wrapped the PSU in Pink Di-Noc to Match the CPU Got the BSMODS 5050 RGB LED Strip installed This thing is awesome I highly suggest going to the site and getting a set http://www.bsmods.com/Mod_Shop.php Also here is a short unboxing and demo video of the Product in action http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q4yVHRXeiHE Ok we got her all tubed up going to be adding a second 240mm crossflow Rad to the top later Ok was thinking of sleeving these Front Panel Wires But I got a better Idea. I found some UV Pink 18g wire so I am going to change out all the FP wires to this wire Here is a look at the color change effect in the Black Light. Got the 120Gb Kingston SSD Mounted behind the Mobo plate. This is our Video Card EVGA GTX 550Ti. Going to be custom Painting it and the New Xigmatek PSU with a Spider Web Design Xigmatek 700 watt PSU I picked up from PPC's on clearance for $25 Got the New Icemodz Custom Cables and UV LED Lights in there check out his site he does awesome work. http://www.icemodz.com/ Also here is another video of the unboxing and Demo of the lights Outside as well as Inside the case. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fp4nYBbLdI0 Well thats it for now guys I'll install the Newly painted PSU when I get the second Rad, GPU Block and Flow Indicator in.

  9. Hello Fellow Modders I'm Nick. I just won Primochill's Pre-Production Wet-Bench . It is the only one in the world outside of Primochill's doors. This is the Pre-Production Model, the final model will undoubtedly have some changes to it. Keep posted for video reviews, up close pics and to see what happens with it. First off I would like to thank my sponsors http://www.overclock.net/content/type/61/id/1540692/width/500/height/1000 http://www.bsmods.com/ http://www.enermax.com/ http://mod-smart.com/ And of course Frank N. Stein Thank you for my spot in your Booth at Quakecon 2013 and for Sleeving my Power Supply Cables. https://www.facebook.com/frank.n.stein3 Thank you very much for your support.

The MOSFET and South Bridge cooler are this Sunburnt Orange color and that is not going to work with our theme so we are going to remove them and paint them Blue to go with our theme. Taped up the Stainless rod that runs through the MOSFET heat sink and the contact point. Not bad. I like it. (That is not the RAM and CPU cooler we will be using for the build I'm just using them to test the temps after I painted the heat sinks.) Going to be covering the I/O panel in Di-Noc Carbon as well as the Plate that covers the on-board sound card. Whoo hoo I like Boxes. New Bitspower CPU Block & Ram Block in Ice Blue, XSPC RS360 Radiator and Primochill 1/2" ID x 3/4" OD Advanced LRT UV Blue Tubng. Now we take the CPU Block apart so I can Put some Di-Nock on the Black part. Now we do the same for the Ram Block. Got the CPU Block installed on the Board. And the Ram Block. . Well things got interesting and we got to build the Wet-Bench at Quakecon 2013.(Thank you Frank N. Stein for all your help.) Here are a few Pics we took While we had it put together at Quakecon 2013. First set up once I got it back home. The Ram Block and CPU Block are too close together so I have a Kink in the Run from the CPU outlet to the RAM inlet. Going to need to order some fittings to get rid of the kink. Using a back up power supply while I wait for my Cables to get back from Frank N. Stein A look at the Res and Pump A close up of the ICE Blue CPU and RAM Blocks by Bitspower Thank you to our Sponsor BSMODS for the 5050 LED RGB Lighting System Got them installed not too shabby effect with the lights on. But when we turn off the Lights. :) Really Digging the effect of the Enermax T.B. Vegas Trio Fans. :up Had to order some fittings to fix the Kink in the Tubing run from the CPU Block>RAM Block. Ordered 1 Monsoon 90 Deg. rotary fitting(Anodized Blue) and 1 Bitspower 20mm Extension(Black they don't make Blue :( ) Got the fittings installed they worked perfectly to take care of than nasty kink. Time for a bit of leak testing. And while we are at it lets take some close-ups. Ordered a couple more Monsoon 90 Deg. 3/4" fittings and a new Swiftech MCP655 /w Bitspower Mod Kit (Blue) And more waiting. Be back soon. Got the first Monsoon 90 Deg. Fitting installed has to use a Bitspower 20mm Extender to get rid of the kink from the CPU Block to the RAM Block Got the Swiftech MCP 655-B installed with the Bitspower Mod kit in Blue got two more Monsoon 90 Deg. Fittings to go from the RAM Block to the Primochill CTR Ok Got two more Mosnsoon 90 Deg fittings to go from the Primochill Pass-through to the CPU Block.(had to use a 40mm Bits power exstender to raise the fitting on the Primochill Pass-Through so its just as high as the CPU block fitting. Ok got the last three Monsoon 90 Deg Fittings for the Pump and the Radiator. Picked up a Primochill Vortex Flow indicator. Got the PSU in Ultra X4 750 Watt Full Modular And of course This can't stay stock so we are going to cover it in Di-Noc Now the cables are going to be Sleeved by the one and only Frank N. Stein. But I think the ends need to be sexified just a bit. Cables just came in from Frank N. Stein super sexy I'm sure you will agree. Frank this sleeving work is just phenomenal!!!! Sleeved the Pump wires with some of the leftover Mod/Smart Kobra sleeving Frank N Stein sent me I pulled the GPU's out of my 900D build to take some nice pics of Frank N Stein's sleeving work. And now we fill the loop and leak test(always leak test with all the cables disconnected from the motherboard and GPU's. If possible use a different PSU for leak testing.) Well guys that's it for now going to take me a couple months to save up the cash for the GPU's thinking of a couple GTX 760's..... Hope you enjoyed watching as much as I have building. C-ya Later.
  10. Hello everyone. This is my new "Main" project, after two small projects, one for a client and the other one being the tutorial project, this being the first main project since Fallout Cause SP back in December 2011. I´ve had this idea in my head for years now, and you could say all of my projects in the last year and a half have simply been "tests" for techniques, both paint and structural modification in order to get ready for this one. The concept is as far as I know something that has never been done before. Mixing the post-apocalyptic style with the steampunk style in a small slimline case (the same model in fact as I used for the fallout cause sp project). The reason for this is that it gives me a compact canvas to concentrate details and because the parts do not fit, they give me a modular look that I´ve always liked since I saw the original thermaltake Level 10 case (the first one, not the redesigned GT version). This project is being sponsored by: Some are new and some have been with me since the begining, either way I´d like to thank all of them for their support and amazing products! I don´t normally list the hardware I will be using on my projects, but for the first time, this project will actually become my main PC so here are the basic details. ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3 Intel i7 2700K Kingston HyperX 16Gb DDR3 1866Mhz 2x Kingston HyperX SSD 240Gb in RAID 2x MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti TwinFreeze OC 2Gb in SLI NZXT HALE90-M-850w B-Move Slim II Case As for the rest of componentes, cooling and accesories, you´ll see them as they get mounted. Let´s start then. I´ve started with the structural modifications I need done on the case, the B-Move Slim II. I really like this case, it´s small, simple yet stylsh. I´ve taken it all apart, I won´t be using any of the frontal conectors (except frontal USB & Audio) nor buttons or led. For the design I have in mind to work, I need to cut the cover in parts, fit the upper and lower parts permanently to the case so the door is just the side, so here goes. First part done: And the second: And now a test mount of the side panel: It all fits fine, mostly because they have grips underneath that grab the frontal side of the case. This way it doesn´t become flimsy or weak. Now the frontal of the case. I´ve removed everything from it as it has to be cut down in order to be made completely square and straight (which will later be filled to suit my frontal design). First, cutting the left side so that a drive sized device can fit through it (originally it´s designed not to as it has a trap door with a open close button). Second is cutting all the elevated parts in order to make everything perfectly staight and squared. It will later be sanded down, and filled up to make it a solid block. Now I´m going to be modifying the lower part of the case to suit the power suply, I´m using a used PSU for refference as it´s exactly the same size as the NZXT psu that will go in. In order to accomplish this I need to cut part of the lower section and modify the grip on it so I can still be fitted without the rear screw. And done. and the PSU fits nicely now. Now I´m going to start customizing the PSU. I´m going to be using a wood "look" vinyl, mostly as a design base so I have the lines and typical look of wood to work on. And now the first stage of it´s paintjob, which in this case is mostly a mixture of inks, and ageing effects. Here´s the first stage: And the final stage: And the brass detail on the side that will be poping out of the case. . The camera flash shows what it actually looks like: And finally a comparison shot between the standard vinyl and the "modified" one: More to come soon!
  11. Corsair announced a new line of H80 and H100 coolers today. The updates look very promising, and it's always nice to see companies innovating on existing ideas. Some of these improvements are quite daayumn impressive... The [MAGNETIC!] mounting bracket, increased performance, and software UI to name a few. I like! Improvements include: Improved rubber tubing (better flexibility and durability) OD increased to 14.3mm (correct me if I'm wrong, Brits, this should mean 1/2"ID, 3/4"OD tubing diameters) Now shipped with Corsair's new fans designed for better rad airflow Completely new magnetic fully universal mounting system. No screws, no hassle, scratch resistant. [To clarify, this is for the mounting bracket on the back of the mobo] (is this real life?) Out of the box ready to interface with Corsair's V2 Link software. No more button on the heatsink itself. You can now use a pretty and effective UI on your PC instead! Customizable (via software) RGB LED logo. Prettttttttyyy!
