  1. Been a while since I've posted a project log, so for those who don't know me, or don't remember, Hi, I'm Mosquito, also known as Chris, and I'm a case modding enthusiast A coworker and I were talking about some of the case mods I've done in the past, and as a result wanted to try watercooling his BitFenix Portal case. He thought switching back to the Wraith cooler for the CPU, and doing a custom loop with a 120mm radiator for just the GPU would be all he'd get. I told him I bet I could fit a 240mm radiator in there, so that's what we've decided to go after... It actually took a lot less modding than I thought it might, as we got relatively lucky with the radiator just clearing the GPU block, but we'll get into that more later. First things first, this is the Bit Befnix Portal, for those who are not familiar Something that makes things a little weird, is that the chassis slides out of the main shell, so we had to make sure we allowed that to continue working through all this. This is what the 'stock' build consisted of. ASRock B350 ITX, Ryzen 1600X, and an RX Vega 56. First things first, gotta tear that down. With the case empty this is, roughly speaking, what we intend to make happen. Removing the back fascia gives a pretty compact little chassis. Though with some indexing pins on the bottom, it doesn't sit on the workbench very well! Next up, remove the drive cage. I'm not sure why this wasn't easily removable, as the bottom is mostly held in place by some sliding connections, but never the less there were 6 rivets to drill out After some fiddling around, we realized that it was going to be a lot more work to get the radiator mounted on the outside of the case, so we would have to make fans in front work instead. Next up, we'll have to get it to fit both fans up front, so stay tuned for that, and please ask questions, post comments, and let me know what you think. Forums are about community, whether we all agree or not
  2. PROJECT NEOTOXIC - Pink and White AMD-based Bitfenix Neos Build I've had my system for a while now. It's been pretty good so far in terms of performance and reliability, but it's always need something more. Right now, it's specs are: AMD Phenom II X4 945 125W ID-Cooling SE-913X* ASUS M5A78L-M LX V2 10GB Kingston DDR3L (1x8GB + 1x2GB) HIS Radeon HD 6950 1GB Bitfenix Neos White Window HP 110T Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi XtremeGamer Antec Truepower New 650W As you can see, it's a decent, somewhat run-of-the-mill system. It's been able to handle everything I've thrown at it so far to a decent degree. However, I noticed that it's starting to stutter a bit in some games when there is a lot of blood involved. This isn't helped by the extremely dated CPU and GPU. I do have a solution to this problem though. I will be upgrading the system to the following specs (B=bought, N=Need to buy, all prices are in AUD): AMD FX-6300 (B, $30) Undecided CPU Cooler (got my eye on a Scythe Ninja Mini on eBay) MSI 970A SLI Krait Edition (B, $97) 18GB DDR3 (B, $60) (2x4GB+1x8GB+1x2GB) Undecided GPU (probably RX 460) Bitfenix Neos White Window (B, $69) 2x Undecided 120mm Case Fans Antec Truepower New 650W (B, $70) As you can see, the only parts that will be carried over are the PSU, Case and some of the RAM. I will also be making my own custom additions to the case: Clear Acrylic Side Panel Window PSU Shroud Pink and White Custom Sleeved PSU Cables Pink LED's Pink Front Mesh Here is the build in it's current state: And here is the motherboard: I also need some advice: The PSU shrould will be painted white, should I leave it blank or put a logo/design on it? If so, what logo and colour should it be?
  3. This is a LAN build in progress for events like QuakeCon and PDXLAN. Will update as hardware arrives. Note: Case has been custom painted from black to white thanks to Ian (TornTV). I live in an apartment complex and do not have the means for a custom paint job of this type. Build name is a combination of my first name name and "darkness" (Heaven and Hell), hence Hangel. I love Horror :wub: More hardware and pics coming soon... Progress might be a bit slow since I need to acquire a couple of items from the store. These I will install myself: Diamond Knurl PC Feet, Black - http://mnpctech.com/...feet-black.htmlThree - 140mm Billet Pro-Line, Round PC Fan Grill, Black - http://mnpctech.com/...40mm-black.html15 Black PC Thumbscrews - http://mnpctech.com/...bscrews-en.html PC Part Picker link: AMD FX-8370, Fractal Design Core 3500 - Hangel - NocturneKittie's Saved Part List - PCPartPicker Please see original look for Fractal Design Core 3500 at this link: http://www.fractal-design.com/home/product/cases/core-series/core-3500 Fractal Design logo was painted over so Ian created me a snowflake sticker/decal :)
  4. Jump to final photos if you're too impatient to read the journey! CPU Magazine Volume 14 - Issue 12 (December 2014) Welcome to Project Clunk! I must begin by issuing an apology for the seemingly jumpy posts, as I didn't intend on making a project log for this at first but was told I should, so I figured, "why not?" I should also mention that this mod was started the second day of January 2013, working on it on my free time during lunches, etc. and then it sat in a box in the shop for a few months until I continued work on it a couple weeks ago in secret, so the log may be confusing at 1st. I will be using spare parts I have left in the EEL shop so I can clean out some of it and give it a good home too. Also, it will be decked out with a lot of MNPCtech gear so keep your eyes peeled for those! This project won't be too extravagant or expensive either, hence the budget kind of feel to things. Which also makes things interesting to me because I like to flex the creative muscle for no money (other than time invested). This is a project for a friend based on a Bitfenix Outlaw chassis.... or what's left of one anyways... The story begins... Toward the end of last year, (somewhere around November I believe?) I was handed what was left of this case by Hank @ PPCs as it came in on a shipment of RMA cases from misc. retailers in the US on behalf of Bitfenix, and my initial reaction was to turn my nose up at it due to the low-tier case and horrid condition it was in with the stock front fascia busted completely off and pieces hanging left and right from it, dented panels, etc. But the more I looked at the case, the more I felt compelled to just destroy it. And that's not meant in a negative manner either, although I didn't really like the case to begin with due to the thin materials and low cost, but what really caught my eye was the inverted-ATX layout versus size. It's no big secret that I'm a fan of the inverted-ATX layout. I love it for watercooling! I had promised my friend Duke (whose favorite color is GREEN) that I would build him something sometime for him to transplant his *namebrand MATX AMD system* (cough cough) into a "better enclosure", and figured this was a perfect opportunity to do so. My initial idea was to build something kind of post-apocalyptic (due to working on BIO-A10 at the time) or something and it quickly moved to putting it loosely in the Mad Max arena, hence the name. It's just a name borrowed from a character from Mad Max, but nothing to do with the character. It just clicked in place and fit the idea perfectly. It's my take on the idea of it being a part of the gangs that the MFP tends to run down in those flicks -- or at least try to. So it's an anti-MFP build! ;) I should also place the disclaimer that this wasn't an idea stolen from Bill at all; I found it hilarious that he mentioned doing a Mad Max build sometime in the future on a past podcast and I decided to stay silent about it at the time so it would be a surprise when I finally unveiled this. I suppose insane minds think alike! So, just think of Clunk as merely an appetizer for whatever Bill has up his sleeve. I'm guessing something MFP related too. :) Can't wait for it! Let's get on with it, shall we? This is the POS chassis. Lovely, isn't it? I actually liked the way the case looked without the stock panel on it anyways, because those cheap plasticy front panels are a dime-a-dozen to me. I'll be fabricating a new front for the case. It's rather small, considering it an ATX chassis. I'm a packrat by nature, if some of you didn't already know, so I tend to keep a lot of weird things I remove off past cases. I also happen to keep a lot of solid materials that I can use, and I happened to have a front panel off a destroyed Lian Li V-2100B. And look, it also happens to be just the right size for a new front panel! The ridged nature to the panel also adds a certain coolness for it to me too, considering it's just a piece of aluminum (aluminium for Kyle)! And the 1st in a substantial jump forward... Here's what I've been up to with the opposite-mobo side panel... I'll be back when I have more to show after I've ripped the guts out of it and given it the B-Jesus! Thanks for wasting some of your time reading this hog-wash! Toodles!

  7. 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.

  10. Also seen here on my personal website: http://www.design4paragon.com/power-mac-reloaded.html First glance of Apple computer was around 1999 when i was still in high school, and it was the iMac G3 with color transparent shell. It just looks amazing, still does today, but I never got a chance to touch or use it. Then I went to college to study industrial design, and one of our professors like Apple's design a lot, and talked about Apple highly all the time. He had a Powerbook G4 Titanium. In my junior year, our new campus was established, and we were given a digital media design lab with all Apple desktops. I was the monitor of my class, and I bargained with my professor to have class on digital media design in the new lab; he agreed. For a whole semester and summer, we were using Powermac G4 Quicksilver models. Back then, we also had all Cinema Display with Powermac G4. For use who all used CRT monitors, this is light, thin, vivid. Yes it cannot adjust angle and stuff as today's standards, but CRT users don't adjust angles much, period. We also received a Sony DV Cam to shoot. It was not the one-hand-operating one; it is the ones media used 11 years ago on people's shoulders. I believe people still put them on shoulders. TA told me it cost the same as a VW Polo. I like to take things apart, but not that DV Cam. Powermac G4 on the other hand, did not escape. In 2000 to 2004, computer case design was a lot different from today's criteria. There was no cable management grommets, routing behind motherboard tray, not even motherboard try. Most PSU still run with 80mm fan on the back as exhaust, and rarely some models use 120mm bottom mounted fan as intake. You don't see thumb screws on side panel often either. I had a magnetic screw driver on my table all the time in college. This Powermac G4 is different, just pull the handle and everything is right in front of you. IDE cable can be used like ribbon, folded 90 degree turns everywhere. Simplicity itself is not simple. It is still very hard to see any case design has better style and more detailed touches, even in today's market. look at that IDE cable on the right hand side. Yes thick bezels. Would you use this for 3 screen surround? Power and digital signal run in the same cable, as we all know here. That is why I didn't buy this monitor for this Hackintosh build.
  11. Hey there guys and gals, I just did a review article for Dragonblogger, unboxing and reviewing the Bitfenix Comrade PC case that I recently bought. Please feel free to take a look at it and let me know what you think. I believe that you may just be a little surprised with this particular article, but you have to check it out to find out... ;) I'm receiving NO compensation for this article, btw, in case anyone was wondering, but this is the beginning of my re-launch as a blogger, reviewer, etc. Article url: http://www.dragonblogger.com/bitfenix-comrade-unboxing-and-review/ Oh, and Jeremy told me to post it here, in case anyone wondered. ;)

    Hello there Zoo-animals! BitFenix was nice to send me a Colossus mITX to mod it and do something fun with it. So when I received it I started to think about what I wanted to do with it, one thing I wanted to change after reviewing the case was to change the LEDs to another color then blue/red/green. If anyone are interested in doing the same I will post a simple step to step guide here how to do it yourself. Thank you BitFenix and Inet for giving me this case and some fans to play around with. I made a window on the sidepanel that followed the lines of the LEDs. Installed a smaller U-channel around the edge of the sidepanel too, I dont like U-channels but when I found this one I changed my mind, this one is smaller and cleaner. If you remove the frontpanel of this case you will find this small thing installed behind it. This is the LED-chip. And this is what it looks like if we remove it, the entire LED-bars on this case is powered by two single leds. I made my own little plate and lined it up with the lightbars. Then I soldered together my own LEDs that connects to a regular fan-port. And tada, this is the result. I will keep tweaking it so it will be even better. But if you want to do this it is pretty simple. Remove the old LED-chip.Make your own little plate and drill some holes to fit two of your own LEDs.Solder together two LEDs to your connector of choice.Install your new plate together with the LEDs.Done! What do you think? I dont have any hardware right now for this case but I will keep working on it. With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
  13. G'day All So this is one that I have been meaning to post for a while. I am hacking and customising a Bitfenix Shinobi for my lovely fiancé. this is going to be a Very Girly build with splashes of pink and an appearance of Tinkerbell. When I get home from work I will have me first update with pictures and all. I will have to apologise if the pictures are not 100% as they are taken off the iPhone. I kind of have a side motive as once I have finished this build I will get underway changing my 800D and turning it into my ROG beast. this is a working project and I will update it as soon as I have done more to it.
  14. I have a Red Prodigy and I am looking to trade the Red front for a Black one. Normally, I would run right out and get a Black Prodigy to swap the parts with. Ending up with a Red Prodigy with Black front and a Black Prodigy with Red front. But, I'm cheap, so I'd rather find someone who likes the opposite look of what I want. If you're wondering what it would look like...... This a series of color swaps Overclockers UK did: http://forums.overclockers.co.uk/showthread.php?t=18501819
  15. I used to be working on a CM Storm Stryker project - I'll post the link here so that someone could just shut the thread down, delete if you guys feel like it. This is the ongoing project! It's still Star Wars themed, just instead of the "newer" Galactic Empire, I'm going for the older Sith Empire theme. >>>>>>Please delete/close this thread since it's no longer active!<<<<< I ordered a Bitfenix Prodigy, color is "Passion Red". It was the first case I saw that just ....spoke to me! I saw it for the first time in Click here for gallery My theme is "Sith Empire" - hence the Red case. I'll be adding a new custom front panel, which gives better ventilation and has the Sith Empire symbol airbrushed on it. Let's talk components, shall we? As I've already said, I'm planning on getting a good enough motherboard, so I could upgrade my components freely for the next couple of years (hopefully). I am going to, however, get the best out of my water cooling loop. Motherboard: EVGA Z77 Stinger, mITX CPU: Inter i5-3570k, 3.4GHz, Socket 1155 Graphics Card: Sapphire HD 7970 GHz Edition, 2GB GDDR5 Memory: Corsair Dominator GT 8GB, Dual channel DDR3 Power Supply: Corsair HX Series HX750 Power Supply I will NOT be using a dvd, blu-ray or whatever 5.25'' drive. I've moved on to strictly USB and it's worked out for me so far. Here are the water cooling components I'll be using, feel free to correct me on some of them if you find something better. I have no experience in liquid cooling, but I am eager to learn! CPU Block: EK Supremacy GPU Block: EK-FC7870 - Nickel Radiators: 1x HL Black Ice GTS240 and 1x Phobya 200 Xtreme (or a double GT240 Stealth < current plan, depends on how much space I have when I get the case) Pump: Laing D5 (probably with a Bitspower Modkit) Reservoir: Bitspower Multi-Option Z-Multi 250mm Fittings: I don't want to rush this, as I think it's one of the most important things. I will be going with Bitspower for sure. Tubing: Bitspower Crystal Link for the entire loop. Coolant: Mayhems Pastel Red with Clear/UV Red dye. (Mayhems Aurora Tharsis Red, will get samples of both and decide on the go) As far as case lighting goes, I'll be using UV Cold Cathode lights (White cathodes/LEDS if I go with the Aurora coolant) to light everything up. Fans: Now as case cooling comes, I'll use the two supplied fans with the case to move air inside the case, but what I'll be using for the radiators is this: Corsair AF120, Quiet Edition, Red color. These will match my color scheme perfectly. As far as fan grill go, I'll have my own laser cut (still not decided on material, maybe a suggestion?). Front Panel has been designed. I'll be using a custom panel bought from Overclockers, then sent over to Dave from Rigmods Hardware to have the design done. As far as cable sleeving goes, it's going to be red and black, still not decided on a patter so I'll work it on the go ^^ I think that pretty much wraps it up. I hope I can get my case within the next two weeks! In the mean time, if you guys have any idea, suggestions, critiques (I encourage those!) PLEASE feel free to share them. I'll keep you guys updated as soon as I have new information, components updates and what not. Cheers guys!
  16. BitFenix have heard the pleas of (it would seem all) their Facebook fans and developed the Prodigy M. It uses the same chassis as the Prodigy with a reverse motherboard mount, a front mounted PSU and 180mm floor intake. Details to be released. Tired of the Prodigy or pumped for more options??
