  1. Phenom

    Shiny Rainbow

    Hi every body, I present to you a small project i start a long time now... This project is based on a phanteks shift X anthracite , the idea is to associate two tendency " RGB and polished aluminium ". The goal for me is to realise a sober project with good cable management and add some aluminium plate to get a harmonious result. The sponsors who followed me in this project are: Je les remercies chaleureusement car sans eux et sans vous rien ne serait possible. this is the configuration of the project : Processor : Intel core I7 8700k Motherboard: Asus Z370i gaming VGA : Asus gtx 1080 8go Ram : Gskill trident RGB 16go 3000Mhz SSD : Intel SSD 600P M2 1to SSD : Intel Optane 16go Power Supply : Bequiet SFX 600W Cable : Cablemod personnalize First step on this case , add some plate to hide the PSU and the bottom of the case. This two plates will be paint in black when the case will be totally finish. next is time of sanding and polishing with belgom alu i start to sanding with grain 80 because the metal got a special hard treatment before i start to got the natural aluminium. First step with grain 120 and the result was : " i go grain 80 or i order a ton of grain 120 " Finally we take the grain 80 , i use 5 disk by face of the case. Yes it s really better we try the polishing to test Résult : awesome lets go !!! First passage for polishing : second passage , third and others : Then we arrive to a correct result : " on way to polishing again " I decide to paint the top ot the case too , but before i polished all the line and paint all in black exept the top of the line, the result is perfect. J'en ai profiter pour faire la partie supérieur du boitier aussi , j'ai appliquer la même méthode ponçage + polissage puis j'ai peint en noir tout le reste en ne laissant que les lignes du haut. It s time for hardware, i mount a part of the configuration. to ensure all was of for the dimension. I m really impressed to imagine 1 to on this small things We test the cable from cablemod. this is the version pro with metal cablecomb, this cable are awesome, never hesitate to buy it. We add an awesome ekwb watercooling bloc specially realise for this motherboard. Same treatment for the VGA Meanwhile I am to contact by an old modder which work to phanteks and which participated in the development of this case which proposes me of sponsored certain products. A few weeks later I receive at my home Halos Lux Rgb Frame taken out a few months ago only in CES 2018, a pack RGB strips and a box has tools terribly effective and of a really good finish. we put it on the case Then I noticed that in the case there was a space side GPU which was rather ugly once the installed configuration, we saw many cable and not bad really ungraceful thing there. I thus began to realize an aluminum plate hide all this. I still feel myself for this plate of " raw or polite " metal. Then we passed in the tubing full house metal: (the first time for me and I made it found that very easy) The tubes of acrylic and those metal stands out in the same way in the end. I used one cuts tube which we find in the business for the plumbers. I have of to drill holes for the pump because even if there is one platesin this case which take care of my pump the configuration was not adapted has what I wanted to make. Voucher a the end of day, always the same bad problem in the finger but the result is really beautiful. I wonder I even to have ended him in the 1 day. I have to proceed to the paint of plates alu " alim mask and bottom of case " in black, to realize the cable management. The project is not crazy is there because I wanted him sober and simple, not by feignantise but because I want that it adapts itself for example has an environment of lounge quoted of a TV. There is all the same 70 working hours on this case, the polishing, the cutting and the folding of rooms to create for the case having taken me more than 70 % of my time. The final photos are thus for soon. Thanks to all to support us, quite your small messages, your likes, your sharings, Thank you.
  2. Hello Everyone! I'm Calen and better known by my company Envious Mods! I am very honored to be a part of the CaseMOD Invitational and can't wait to show you what all I have in store for you! I will be updating the build log several times per week but, I'll also be updating my Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@EnviousMods) in order to give you even more access to what goes on behind the scenes. No matter what happens I promise to bring you all some new mods, new techniques and something you've never seen done. If you need help or advice I'm always available to help fellow modders and enthousiasts. Let The Modding Begin! I want to introduce the "Replicant" Case Mod. It will be inspired by Blade Runner 2049. I will interweave this inspiration throughout the View 91 TG case mod. My goal is to bring you into the world shown within Blade Runner. I will also be employing linear actuators to give the build movement. The Thermaltake Voice activated digital leds (SyncAllSay "Hello, ) will play a big role in setting the scene for this epic mod. Almost every piece in this build will be modded in one way or another. I'm pulling out the stops and playing for keeps. "Replicant" Design Concept Art This concept art serves as a guideline for the Replicant case mod that will be done in a Thermaltake View 91 TG. I purposely left out an awesome feature that will go on the top of the build. I will also be adding lots of other mods and pieces as this build evolves. I'm happy to have you all along for the Journey Into Modding..... Mods Planned (Continually Updated) • Custom dual reservoir combined to make 1 reservoir with 2 chambers • Linear actuators to move front doors and top of the case • Flip up side panel using custom hinges to make a mix of Ferrari and Gullwing doors • Extensive Cable Management that will be fabricated into the rear side of the case • Acrylic & aluminum rear motherboard tray mount • Water Distribution Plates (made in a new way with extensive features) • DiffuseDo light panels found throughout the mod • Scratch built feet, dual watercooling loop; (all hardware will be modded) • Floating fan built from a modded Thermaltake Pure Plus fans. • Modded W4 Plus CPU block & modded pumps More Updates to the Design!
  3. Hello and welcome to the project logs for: VENOM First i'd like to thank all the wornderful people who helped with this project Cablemod (Link) ASUS Republic of gamers UK (Link) TeamGroup Global (Link) Fractal Design (Link) EK Water Blocks (Link) Cablemod being the main sponsor for this project also paid for nearly everything on this project. the awesome saucy team that they are Specs: Cablemod Pro Edition Cable extensions Cablemod RGB/UV LED Kit Cablemod RGB/UV LED strip 30cm Cablemod green thumb screws Ryzen 7 1700X ASUS ROG Crosshair VI Hero ASUS ROG Strix 1070 Fractal Design Define R6 Fractal Design 850w PSU Teamgroup Global RAM (Cannot discuss at this time) EKWB Full watercooling EK-Vardar EVO 140ER Black (2000rpm) EK-CoolStream SE 280 EK-FB ASUS C6H RGB Monoblock - Nickel EK-HD Tube 10/12mm 500mm EK-HDC Fitting 12mm G1/4 - Black EK-RES X3 150 EK-XTOP Revo D5 PWM - (incl. pump) EK-CryoFuel Acid Green Premix 900 mL EK-AF Angled 90° G1/4 Black EK-AF Angled 45° G1/4 Black EK-FC1080 GTX Strix - Acetal+Nickel EK-FC1080 GTX Strix Backplate - Black What is VENOM ? Venom is an all green and black build, with a serious twist. using PolyMorph plastic, i'll be re-doing the shroud and panels of the case. Veins will be wrapping themselves around the whole case and internals, these veins will ignite bright green under UV lights. Think of the upside-down in Stranger Things. Imagine those roots/veins as green.. Got it? lol I've got a lot of work ahead of me on this one, i'll also be doing strange things to the tubing, reservoir and fittings. It's actually very hard to describe, but i got all the design images i need up in my brain lol. Photo's Delivery from Cablemod! I had these cables custom made just for this project. These are the Cablemod Pro cables, with Aluminium combs I also asked for some sexy Anodised thumb screws from cablemod And finally, i needed some UV lights for the project. Cablemod sent out RGB/UV kit + extra 30cm strip Delivery from ASUS Republic Of Games UK - Has just arrived! Check out these two beauties! First up is the Crosshair VI Hero! Next up, the Strix 1070 OC 8GB That's all for today folks. Thanks for looking PS. My projects move pretty fast, so although there's ''no work'' so far, it'll come in. There's no ''pixxy dust dreams'' up in here.
  4. With the new Dark Tower movie coming up this summer, based on the series by Stephen King, I got really excited. Excited enough to do a Dark Tower themed mod. But I found I still had some excitement left over...enough for maybe another mod...hmmm... And so starts the story of the Crimson King, or rather, my Crimson King mod. The Crimson King of the Dark Tower series is the main antagonist. Similar to our notion of Satan, the Crimson King is a shape-shifter and referred to as "the great scuttering spider-king". He embodies the ideas of chaos, anarchy, and evil. Though Roland, The Gunslinger, faces many different foes on his journey to the Dark Tower, the Crimson King is the orchestrator of it all. In fact, he is the cause for the decay of Roland's world, hoping to bring down the Dark Tower and bring about Discordia, or a state of chaos and anarchy. The same chaos and anarchy that Roland is trying to stop. The Crimson King is the evil to Roland's good, the black to Roland's white. In an interesting side note, a lot of characters from the Dark Tower series cross over to other King novels, like Father Callahan from King's Salem's Lot. The Crimson King first appeared in Insomnia, and shares the characteristic shape-shifting and final spider-like appearance of Pennywise, or It, from King's It. To capture the evil vs. good relationship of the Crimson King to the Gunslinger, I'm going to be using the same Cooler Master Mastercase5 Maker and basic design that my Gunslinger build is using, but tweaked a bit. Mirrored, to capture their opposite sides of the spectrum, but using similar hardware and themed to the Crimson King. This build will be the evil twin or, perhaps, the doppelganger of the Gunslinger. So, let's start off with a case...a Mastercase.
  5. “The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed.” The opening line from The Gunslinger, the first book in Stephen Kings epic that follows the quest of Roland Deschain, the Gunslinger, for the Dark Tower. The Dark Tower series has to be my favorite, mixing western, sci-fi, apocalypse, magic, the current world, and quite a few characters from King's other books, and even King himself, into one big stew of a story. It's amazing. *Except for the lobster things. Da-da-chum. I hated Stephen King for a few days after that. If you've read the stories, you'll know. But with the new Dark Tower movie slated to come out next year and the stars of that movie tweeting things like: And even King telling us that this is the next time around... I haven't been this excited for a movie for a while. And with so much story to take from, I thought, this might be a great idea for a mod. Or even two... So let's get started on The Gunslinger.
  6. NZXT H630 mod, Doppler effect, by DeKa (completed March 11, 2015) Hello everyone,This is my first post in this forum, Bill Owen recommended me to publish my work here and I will do the best I can as my English is a little limited. I know Bill Owen's work since the start my modding disease. His work inspired me to start in "this" we do around here. madnesses, oh yes. The Primochill fittings revolver I use this mod not sold in Spain, I bought in Germany ... his fault. I am Argentine and I live in a town near Barcelona, Spain. For some time I have been working on various advertising and design projects, but for the last couple of years I'm focused mostly on the PC Modding. I am hoping that my latest productions will catch the attention it deserves, hope you like it as much as I liked doing it. I used a chassis that I personally really like the NZXT H630 and modding Doppler effect. A very minimal, rough and dull looking but extremely quiet. It is also robust and has very discreet lines, with a little work and creativity, looks like a great chassis. One goal of this mod was to work and keep it simple, subtle with minimal lines, using colors typical to that of Asus Republic of Gamers but with a touch more white (not wanting to repeat both reds). I also wanted to create a computer where silence predominated, and for this I used a liquid-cooled high-end custom and distribution of ventilation chord. A minimal, powerful, extremely quiet design and the highest quality components!Below I detailed a worklog ... The Worklog... But first, a look at the finished mod :P Materials / Index Chassis NZXT H630 Black Paint Dust filters Hardware Asus Maximus Extreme VI Intel 4770K 4x4Gby TridentX GSkill RAM 2400MHz SLI Nvidia Gforce 770 Asus DirectCU II OC Corsair AX1200 PSU Corsair Wiring sleeve Samsung SSD 840 EVO 256Gby Samsung SSD 830 256Gby Asus Republic of Gamers Front Panel Liquid cooling components: Radiator EK CoolStream XTX (360) 3x12cms 11FPI 2x14cms 30FPI Koolance Radiator CPU Block EK Supremacy - Nikel block X4 Monarch Memories EK EK-FC770 GTX x2 DCII - Nickel EK-FC680 GTX x2 DCII Backplate x2 EK-FC Terminal - Plexi EKWB D5 Pump Storage with nano coating + TOP Aquacomputer Aqualis Corsairs AF 140 fans x3 x3 SP 120 fans methacrylate rigid pipes Fittings Primochill Revolver temperature sensors and other ... Lighting, wiring and sleeve. Lighting and Wiring Lighting blocks General lighting Sleeve The chassis, modifications and details This ultra tower NZXT is very quiet, versatile (although very large) and robust ... it doesn't come with a window but is internally buffered by acoustic panels so it was something less to worry about. The window mount had to keep up sound damping, and the side door was completely replaced by 6mm methacrylate, much thicker than normal (almost the total thickness of the cover) methacrylate but I gave both the structural robustness as soundproofing needed. As the window would represents most of mod tower’s personality I thought it would be a great idea to continue the front / top of the chassis in it with panels of red methacrylate and black aluminum also would bond everything together... Even had been thought over the idea of illuminating only the red methacrylate structural lines but it was impossible to reach the left side, although it would have been really good, I abandoned the idea. I completely removed a huge rack of hard disks compartments, as I had no intention of using it, no mechanical hard disk here (shhhhh) and I could take advantage of the extra space for a low 3x12cms radiator fin density (FPI), family of noiseless coolers. The remaining gap had to be covered up, and I did so using the same material I used in most of this mod, 1mm thick aluminium that had been painted the same black as the rest of the case. Other smaller the holes were plugged with a double sided film the same colour as the chassis, there was no sense to use a any other material and I kept it like that to preserve the possibility to easily remove it in the future if needed. Painting, matte finish:For teh whole mod project, I used Vallejos Premium water-based paints, specially created to apply airbrush paintings, even though it is very easy to apply and cover a lot with one hand, it lacked the expected resistance the I experienced in other paintings of the same type, perhaps it was because it was a fine pigment (for airbrush) layer ends up being too fine and even more so in areas where I sanded, clean surfaces, with a pre-coating and subsequent matt varnished, it was easily scratched. To combat this effect as best I could, I doubled the manufacturer's recommended application, both the color and the matte varnish. It paid off, I ended up with a though, perfect finish. The absolute black colour box was rough - too black, so had to try break the monotony, I decided to paint some parts like the H440 model, but matte metallic red. The red metallic color is not your typical striking red, but rather a more discreet and applied it along the edges and in the front side USB panel, I tried to paint white grids but it started to sway from the line I wanted. I painted black, red and imitation aluminum ledges which I applied in specific areas which you will see further down. Dust filters: The tower comes with lower, upper and front filters, but in reversing the airflow due to loudness issues, the rear fan instead of sucking, it will be exclusively dedicated to injecting airflow as this will be where the most dust would collect the filter had to be outside, to clean it regularly and comfortably without having to open the entire chassis, so I took the screws on the rear fan and with a little help of velcro, attach to the back just where I wanted it, a fine mesh of pvc sandwiched between two pieces thick light adhesive bonded together, fastened by wing nuts layered with recycled parts. The filter without being anything special, it does the job and is practical. Also place fixed filters in large parts of the chassis with passive ventilation. Hardware: The motherboard: The rear connectors on the motherboard are covered on the inside with a thin piece of bent acrylic adhesive lined anodized aluminum painted black imitation, fastened with Velcro to be easily removable if needed.I also subtly applied a metallic red RoG logo heatsink on the chipset to the mod, so it dits in the middle of SLI, then it gets illuminated by the light of the top graphics card.I made a black matte painted piece of 1mm folding aluminum, I placed hovering with screws on the lower connectors on the motherboard (hd-reset-hd led-USB front-AAFP, etc) used to lighlight the ledge where the PSU is placed, besides giving a brilliant aesthetic look it also hides many cables. RAM: The memories modules had to put in RL and this required removing the stock sinkhead and replace the monarch of EK, seemed like an easy task but it got nicely stuck in memory chips, so very carefully, and with a lot of patience I took art and skill not to damaging any components leaving them ready for the waterblock.

    Cat Condo Time!!!

    First post on the mod zoo forum, Greg made me do it. I am working on building my Case labels SMA8 case with a 4770k chip in a Maximus IV Extreme motherboard. Running 16GB of vengeance memory and a single R9 290x GPU. All powered by a corsair 750 PSU. Let me know what you think of the build. Will post updates along the way. Building the computer to do CAD work as well as I would like to build an Oculis simulator for racing. Greg thinks 2x 980ti's will do the trick but we shall see. Will post pictures tomorrow.
  8. Zenator aka ZenModz is no newcomer to the modding scene. With projects such as The Power Cell, and Project: Fallout 4, it’s clear that he’s certainly got a talent for the weathered and distressed theme. Today we're featuring the latest project that he's completed on The Zoo; Project Doom. Project Doom is another mod using the Cooler Master Master Case 5. As the name would imply, the theme for this mod is the new DOOM game. It was also an entry for this year's Cooler Master Case Mod World Series, similar to our previous featured project. The details on the outside of the chassis were all handmade, sculpted, and painted by Zenator. "Mr Crappy", as Zenator calls him, was hand sculpted from two blocks of sign foam glued together, and then finally layered and sculpted with clay before being painted. Using an Asus x99 Sabertooth, Zenator was able to thoroughly mod the board to fit the theme. Other hardware includes an Asus GTX 970 DirectCU II, Avexir Blitz RAM, and all cooled by a custom watercooling loop with a 360mm radiator in the front. Head on over to the forums to check out the Full Project Log from Zenator for how he did it, and more final pictures!

  10. My first water cooling build was a roller coaster of a learning experience to say the least. It seems like every time I'd get a package of parts in the mail I'd realize that I'm missing yet another piece or I'd find some new component that I absolutely had to have. When all was said and done I called my baby GrayGhost. After finishing "him" I began browsing the modding forums and getting the itch to do a case mod. This is my first attempt to mod a case into something that carries my design aesthetic and hopefully keeps a decent build quality although modding with limited tools and space is always a huge obstacle. GrayGhost 1.0 I am a designer by trade so I am planning on building a system that is a bit different and interesting yet manages to remain understated and quiet. Recently the Parvum R1.0 and Corsair 600C have caught my eye because of their inverted motherboard layout. The only problem being money is tight and I told myself I would not buy a new case until after the Broadwell-E processors are released. Until then I dug around I realized I already owned a Define R5 and a Cooler Master Elite 110. I wouldn't have any issues chopping up either of them since they were only collecting dust. Needless to say, due to size restraints, I decided to begin a modding project using the Fractal Design Define R5.

    Fractal Design Define R5 Project

    My Fractal Design Define R5 case mod. n00b's first complete water cooling build. (Short back story) So I had every intention of spending my weekend putting together a build log showing progress made on my first water cooled and modded computer build. ...BUT... Last night I completed the water cooling loop and the system started up with no problem. I was super nervous water would just start gushing everywhere, but the system didn't have any leaks and booted without any issues What's the first thing you do after water cooling your PC? OVERCLOCK! I figured I'd play it safe, since its only a Z97-AR, and used Asus' automatic overclocking utility in the Ai Suite. The system reboots a couple times, which is expected. On the third reboot my computer did not come back on. I instantly had a bad feeling about this, like it was more than just a little Windows 10 quirk. When I tried to turn on my PC again it posted fine, gave me the DEL or F12 to BIOS option (which did not work), and afterwards I got a message saying "Data in the EC or EC cash may be corrupt". WHAT THE HECK?! I checked all of the usual things. I did the routine CMOS jumper, battery, power supply, change ram, unplug non-essentials, blah, blah blah. Nothing has worked. So I got the pleasure of wasting all of my previous work and taking apart my nearly finished system so I can try to fix the motherboard. Waiting for a reply from Asus as to what I should do. I'm hoping they will have an easy fix or will be able to replace my board. I was/am so upset about the situation that I figured posting something will make me feel like I've actually accomplished something. So here are the exterior shots of my case. The design is rather simple. 3 blow holes with MnPCtech overkill fan grills and the MnPCtech machined side panel. Eventually there will be a digital thermometer display behind the front cover that can be seen through the middle fan grill. Other than that I don't plan on doing much more to the exterior. My aesthetic tends to be rather simple and clean as opposed to the flash computers that will turn heads and I'm OK with that. The rest of the build will come soon. I'm sure it will be right after I get tired of waiting and go to Microcenter for a new motherboard. ------

My name is Alex, I'm from Gold Coast, Australia and I just joined the forum. I would like to welcome you to my new build log and what will be my second mod project. Hope you guys enjoy the project and pop by and say hi This build is more of an upgrade of my system in a Fractal Design ARC Mini R2 in which I will be keeping most of the components as well as adding new ones and a lot of modding work to the case and other bits :P Here is the build before disassembly and before a pretty major event happened ... Now back to the pretty major event that went down with the build. One Saturday morning a few weeks back now, while I was still enjoying my sleep my partner wakes me up telling me there is a burning smell coming from the system, me thinking she's just making fun of me as she sometimes does, I choose to ignore her :hehe: . However as she kept insisting and telling me that it's no joke I got up and went to the other room where the system was just to be greeted by this awful smell of burnt plastic and a couple of seconds later realising that the DDC pump had burned out. The CPU was rocking 105C according to Real Temp but was still running fine. Not sure how long it's been like that, it was running the whole night as we stream movies to our bedroom from it and before I went to sleep it was fine. I immediately turned it off by just a normal shut down and there went my day as I decided to just dismantle the thing there and then. The aftermath is shown in the following pics as I went ahead and took everything apart, cleaned it and installed the system on my desk to test everything. Fortunately everything was fine minus a burned out DDC pump . The little guy has been pumping my liquid pretty much 24 hours straight for the past two years and a bit and it decided it's had enough of the Queensland heat. Just when I was about to mount a heat sink on it along with the upgrade of the system . And let's start straight with the dirty stuff As you can see the little guys burned out pretty good, I doubt I can salvage it with a new PCB from that DIYINHK site that still sell them If I'm guessing right the fluid must have been boiling around the CPU area that caused the tube to fog up as well as deform a little bit to the touch. My partner may have woken me up just in time to save it. Not sure if the system would have shut itself off after a while or if the acrylic tube would of just melted but I think I'm lucky nothing further happened. Here's the empty case and by the looks of things something funny happened to the label on that Corsair Force GT SSD. And everything out on the table to be cleaned and inspected You may also spot the new side panel that I have been working on the few days prior, finished it the night before. Here's a better look at the side panel The plan was to have more molecules but I managed to mess up the left side of it so decided to just make the window bigger. Still think it came out pretty good in the end, minus a few painting mess ups due to an unexpected storm that occurred as the paint was drying. These are the molecule shapes I used as I am not good at drawing things A better look at the finished side panel as well as the very last pic of the system running The side panel was fully crafted by me using a Dremel rotary tool, a jig saw and lots of filing I was also playing around with this new Aquaero 5LT controller the night before. Installed the optional heatsink but didn't get to test it out. The modding begins !!! First I cut a small hole in the floor which I will use as a drain from the bottom outlet of the Alphacool Monsta 240mm rad that will be going in the front of the case. Did a cut on the MB tray as well. I will be making a shroud for the bottom so I cut the bottom right corner of the MB tray as to better help with cable management at the back. I made a small mistake here and started cutting higher that I wanted to. However it doesn't make a difference as I will be putting some white acrylic around the MB that will cover everything. I then got the case ready for painting In this last pic you can see how the brushed aluminum aspect of the front panel looks after painting. Some parts will be going green while other will stay white. The plan is to have the inside of the case white and the outside shell green like the side panel. Hopefully it will look good like I'm imagining it. Here is the frame of the case assembled once the paint dried. That's it for now. Stay tuned for more. Cheers, Alex

    Bass Instinct

    Bass Instinct Hey Monkey's I'm finally getting going on a new build. I had a false start on a Corsair 250 D But life got in the way and I'm not sure I'm man enough to do the things I want to do in a Mini ITX case. The Victim of my affection is a Lian li PC-V359. This is a Micro ATX case, but I will be using a Mini ATX board so I will have a little extra room for cooling gear and I like the square proportions, compared to the Mini version of this case. The case I ordered was Black with black Pillars. The Case I got was Black with Red Pillars, I kinda liked that model too so I'm going to go with it. Funny in the Lian li literature the red is more of a fire engine red, but this anodized red is a much better tone of red - Sold. One of the interesting things about this Case is that the top and all four sides slide in and out of the corner pillars to give easy access it opens up a myriad of options for modding. I had a huge sheet of thick Deep Red Acrylic so the first thing i did was make a replacement top window. I know there are a million red and black builds out there, but that's because it looks good, I'll just have to find a way to keep it from being boring. MnpcTech sent me out a set of their beautiful case feet. These feet were made for this case and improved the look over the factory feet, which weren't bad. These may end up getting painted in the end, but I'll wait on that decision until I see how all the colors are blending. I tapped the Case so I could spin the feet on and off easier, but they come with hardware for easy mounting to anything. Ok I admit it, I just like tapping threads whenever possible. My love to thick material is a painful affair when you do your work with basic hand tools. I just like the depth the thick materials add to the look, But there is a price to be paid! I cut out my basic shapes with a Jig Saw and Dremel and then refine the shapes with files and sanding. Not the easiest way to do things, but My setup allows me to watch movies while I'm filling away. My Initial plan for the front was to stack Aluminum on top of the Red Acrylic with the Acrylic just sticking out a little further than the aluminum. Ok planning is not one of my strong suits. What I hadn't anticipated was that my thick stack of materials took away the distinctive angles of the corner pillars sticking out further than the case front. The pillars really make the look of this case, so this wasn't going to work. At this point I am dropping the Acrylic layer and I beveled the edges of the Aluminum to match the angles of the pillars. I had cut the Aluminum wider around the window and now that I removed the lower layer I will have to adapt it to match up better. I started adding some bling to the Aluminum sheet. This is closer than the picture shows, but it was hard to align the camera up perfectly. Not bad considering the tools used to do this with. I really want a Scroll Saw, but I don't want to buy a cheap one that I'll end up hating. So until then I'll just keep doing what I do. I continue to refine this piece. I plan to put lite Acrylic on the inside of the case behind The ROG Logo and Mesh behind the volume bars. I think this piece will be painted in the end. Here is a size comparison between the Lian li case and a 250D. I had originally bought 2 - 250 D cases, I build this straight build in a day, Most of that was hiding wires. I was going to Mod the second case and then transfer the kit, But life got in the way and I never pulled the trigger on the Mod. The New case is more inspiring to me and there aren't 500 of them that have already been Modded. Anyway It is so good to be back into a build, This one is just for the pleasure of Modding, No time limit, no pressure Thanks for checking out the build.
  15. Hello everyone! My name is Kristian Ingelstad, AKA MercoMods. This is my facebook page, where i will post most of my work: https://www.facebook.com/MercoMods I am new to posting on forums like this, so please help me if i do something wrong! :) I also never posted any worklogs. I recently finished my newest project, "Trident of Neptune". I appreciate all feedback, positive and negative. It is a simple mod with no custom loop, just a special color theme. Parts list: CPU: i7-4790K Motherboard: Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark S GPU's: 2x GTX 980 Reference design RAM: 32GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 2133Mhz, got it for 150 dollar! PSU: Corsair Ax1200i (Yes, i know.. Overkill. Had it from when i ran 3x 780 Ti Classified overclocked) Storage: 3x Samsung 840 Pro 256gb, 1x Sandisk Extreme 128gb Case: NZXT H440 Fans: Corsair AF140's and Af120's Cooling: Corsair H110i GT Here are all the parts i used, plus some more! Don't ask why i have 2 mouses there. I don't know! D: The first thing i did after i decided the color scheme, was sleeving the cables. After that, i took pictures of (almost?) all the parts i used, before modding! CPU: i7-4790K Motherboard: Asus Z97 Sabertooth Mark S GPU's: Nvidia GeForce GTX 980 reference design RAM: 32gb Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR3 2133mhz PSU: Corsair Ax1200i (again, please don't kill me for the overkill, i know 750watt is enough, but why buy a new weaker psu when i already have this one? D: ) Storage: 3x Samsung 840 Pro 256GB (Forgot to take a picture of the Sandisk Extreme 128gb) Case: NZXT H440 Fans: Corsair Af140 and Corsair Af120 Cooling: Corsair H110i GT PAINTING! I started with the fans. It was pretty easy using Bill Owen's videotutorial on youtube! (thanks!) RAM: Just unscrewed everything, i guess. Sadly, i didn't take too many pictures of the disassembled parts, as i was mostly recording the whole process for a video, which is coming soon. This includes everything from parts to "Trident of Neptune"! Here's the RAM finished! Here are the finished fans! Ignore the minor gray spots on the rubber grommets. This was fixed later! :) Here's the first GPU finished painted! Here's the first SSD! All of the SSD's were painted like this, but i added some acrylic plates on them later. Ignore the minor white spots on the BACKSIDE of the connection. The golden fingers/connectors was untouched, and the SSD works great. However, i should have attached the tape covering the connector better. Here's one of my favorites! The watercooler! Forgot to take a picture of the case alone when it was finished. :( Anyways, here are some pictures of the finished build! Feel free to leave any sort of feedback on it, both constructive criticism and postive feedback is appreciated. Yes i know the rubber rings are ugly. I had to "sacrifice" one side, to get them back inside. However, if you take a look at the last picture, they look great from the inside. :) All the pictures were taken in this small ghetto garage, haha. We used white background for the pictures, but black for the recordings. Here's a sneak peek on the video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZJHE6GJ9gZM. Due to some problems with Adobe Premiere, i will most likely have to recreate the start of the video, even further delaying it. :/ The "Clear" replacement window for NZXT's new H440 and Razer Edition case is machined from 3/16" cast acrylic. This window offers more durability and visual clarity over the factory Polycarbonate window. These replacement windows are made and sold exclusively by Mnpctech. You just bend tabs to install our custom H440 replacement window in your NZXT H440 and Razer designer H440 Mid tower case and available here, http://mnpctech.com/nzxt-h440-s340-razer-replacement-custom-window-smoked-clear-red-uv-green-blue/ Thanks for reading/watching! Hope you enjoyed it. This is my first big project, hopefully out of many.

  16. this is my mod of a Silverstone TJ07 case the computer is called sabertooth. The motherboard is a Asus sabertooth x58 witch is getting a bit long in the tooth excuse the pun. xspc water block on the processor and some custom ones adapted by me. the graphics cards are r9 290x with ek water blocks on and back plates. there is a 480 rad cooling the graphics cards and a 280 cooling the mb and processor with 8 fans on the rads in a push pull config Apart from the overkill rings on the front and the fans most of the other parts are second-hand or reused off my old system. The case is painted with candy apple red with metal flake the inside is metallic black with holographic metal flake. the first thing i did was to invert motherboard holding plate then i put the hd rack from my old computer in i put aluminium plate in the front and cut the holes for the fans and overkill rings trying find where i was going to put the water pumps the motherboard water blocks i have used old ones of ebay and made copper bottom to suit motherboard then came the painting because of the case is aluminium it needed etch primer then filler primer two coats of metallic silver then four coats candy apple red two coats of metal flake four of lacquer this is the finished computer thanks for the help from the people at Mnpctech post this

  18. Intro: This is going to be my third major build. The first was a water cooled AMD powered machine in a 750D with a black and red theme. My second build carried the same theme of black and red into a 900D powered by a 4770k. Being my third build I wanted to pull out all the stops on this build. The build be a custom desk build. I love the crossdesk but the price and availability prevented me from going that route. So I decided that I would build the desk from scratch. Being in the military I decided I wanted to do a military theme build but not one with ACU or Multi-Cam pattern but one that was more focused on the special operations side of the house. Me personally am not in that community but I have a lot of respect for those that are.

    Project CURTISS P-40

    Project CURTISS P-40 By Victor Tateishi
  20. 1st of all even this isn't a case mod but as its related to mod that's why posting it here. Thanks to Asus for making such a wonderful monitor which can be modded easily....don't know that was this monitor ever modded before...just tried to reach my modding dream with it... This is my 2nd Monitor mod but the previous one wasn't that much as it was only a vinyl mod..........It started after I have seen the Asus ROG Swift monitors RED Circle ring in the bottom part of the base plate And after that I was really much influenced with the Mayan pattern of the Asus ROG which they started doing in ROG products....searched a lot of places for the same pattern that asus uses but just founded this pic to take it as a reference... Tried to sharpen the pic and gather as much as details to apply it in my mod Actually I prepared the ROG EYE along tym ago keeping it in my mind that I will mod my monitor in the future... this I cutting was really hard as it was 5mm plexi and the dimension of the eye was approx 3 inch and i didn't had any laser cutter at my place.... After That cut out the ROG eye in basic shape and it was satisfactory.... The complete EYE....not finished the work yet Here is the finishing touch it ended up much nicer then I thought started the mod with a paper where I draw the Mayan pattern and as the pattern in that banner wasn't enough for my mod...that's why i did used my imagination keeping the Mayan pattern in mind to draw it.... but 1st i need to draw the base plates outline as my basic guide for modding... Then I have drawn some of the mayan pattern in the paper to see how it looks like thought about some basic line of the Mayan pattern but it didn't helped So I just chose one side of the drawing of the paper and copied to the other side with carbon paper...and it was satisfactory after I have implemented in the base of my mod.... The plan was to keep the ROG EYE in the middle of the base...so that it looks nice... Now its time to do the pattern the MAYAN pattern by engraving it in the base Half Part engraving is done... The engraving part was done done slightly to see how the pattern looks... Full circular engraving was done but it wasn't the final finish for the engraving though The base plate will stay in the stand like that....just was seeing that how does it appears And the final thoughts was to add some LED magic..... ;) Now going little deep for the engraving part to make the pattern look bright.. Here's the Difference of the deeper and the 1st engraving.... This will be the implementation.... Now its the time to engrave deeper for the ROG eye to stay inside the base... I did the ROG eye engraving in a way so that the ROG eye that I made before place in there without using of any glue Colored the ROG logo white so the RED becomes vibrant over it.. And here it looks like after the coloring of the logo and the placement in the base For the Light piping the grove of ROG eye transferred the white light to the ROG red eye....dats why its looking little vibrant in here After checking the effect I went to create the portion where I can attache the LED strip so cut a rubber strip and attached glue in it to attach the LED strip in it Then attached a on off switch to control the light to not get distracted while gaming or movie watching or when doing intensive works if it seems distracting then.... after attaching the LED in the Rubber Some rubber feet raiser for the acrylic not getting scratched Attached some double sided tape to stick it in the outside of the baseplate After the double sided tape attached to the LED strip....I have attached it to the base plate Here it is the complete finished look....though a lot of work in left in the monitor Completely removable and customisable ROG eye.... :D Here how it looks after it was implemented in the Monitor stand Sorry for the MSI wallpaper....as it was a default wallpaper of my pc theme.... Did some acrylic cutting for the monitors side edge mod....for some aggressive look after the vinyl over the red painted acrylic....the red was for just the border... Some Red CF wrap for asus ROG feel...with some Silver vinyl touch After the base plate was done....I modded the stand and the monitor with some acrylics and vinyls... After everything is attached These portions are completely removable as its attached in here with double sided tape which will not do any harm to the monitor at all The Glorious ROG.....Some GLAMOUR SHOTS..... ;) A before and after Mod transformation picture
  21. Hi! i am a new guy in the modding community and i am about to start my 1st mod ever!!! i have made a rough sketch of what i think it will look like but i have a problem, how do i make a psu cover? i want it to be shiny and waht is the best material and how do i make the bends and stuff? here is a skiss of what i have made (Mad paint skillz) http://imgur.com/ogDbXia
  22. Hey guys! After the clarification on work-logs, I wanted to share mine with you guys. This is my second case-mod but it is the first time I've made a correct work-log from start to finish. My work is much more professional than my first build and I've learned quite a bit from trial and error. I'm going to plan on using Rampage 4 Gene motherboard and one of new Ivy Bridge-E Chips, probably just the quad core to save a couple bucks. I plan on buying those items on the 15th of October. I'm also probably going to wait for Nvidia to bring out their 790GTX card for this build. As long as it is before the Cooler Master 2013 competition deadline. I might throw something in in the mean time if that's all this build is waiting on.

Goodies from MNPCTECH.com!Acrylic Tubing Reamer from MNPCtech.com PC Window U-channel trim from MNPCtech.com 3M Red Scotchbrite from MNPCtech.com Mnpctech MINI "Grooved" White Derlin Case Feet The first parts I picked up were the case and power supply. I figured I could spend the most time with them while waiting for money for other components. Here they are laid out and I started removing some case panels. After gutting the case, I'm left with my blank canvas! I sanded and washed the plastics to get ready for primer. The primer colors were close to the actual paint scheme. Got the few plastic parts painted then set them aside to continue working the interior. I really like this grey/white scheme. Here are the materials for the internal mods. Acrylic from TAP Plastics. I don't like the grey its daayumn near black so Ill be wrapping panels with a grey carbon fiber material I bought. I'm going to be using MicroRAX for the interior framework. Here is a sneak peek at the sleeving, LutroOs Teleios sleeve. I recently picked up some light grey and I think Ill be using that instead of the dark grey. Got to work cutting acrylic panels. I found that raw measurements and using a clamped fence with a skill saw help making panels perfectly straight and square. I glued in some supports to make a raised bottom panel for a nice flat surface to start on. Here I started adding the microRAX framework. This is where I left off at the end of this past weekend, Hopefully I can get some work done this coming week and its a payday weekend coming up so I should be scooping up some more parts. I absolutely love the microRAX, it really adds a nice professional touch to the project. some screw holes will be socket head and some will be flat head and counter sunk, Ill do that later on.

    Project Alpha

    Project Alpha I've been a pc enthusiast for just about a year or so. Building a gaming rig was only my goal at that time. But as time/months passed by, my love for PC grew. That is the time when i was hooked up to modding. This will be my first ever PC Mod. Right now, i'm in a foreign land and it is hard for me to grab all tools and materials to do modding since im still not familiar in this country. Anyways, I will stop this nonsense and proceed with my build log. Below is the list of parts/hardwares to be used in this build. (This is my first time to build a Liquid Cooled PC and Im really excited ) Some of the parts/hardware are to follow since this will be a Long Term Project.
