  1. So a while back, I got a message asking me if I wanted to play with some new hardware. How could I resist? I mean, new hardware, short timeline, lots of other projects going on, the holidays...sounds like a challenge to me! Originally, my idea was for an open design with the mb and gpu on display with the rest of the hardware in a base, but it felt done. Lots of cases have pulled off that look and I gotta be different, so back to the drawing board...or rather the shower, cause that's where the idea hit me. Standing there with shampoo in my hair, and I'm running through the details of a case design. An aluminum shell with the tray suspended, and everything as compact as possible to keep the size to a mid tower or less. Vertical mount the GPU, check. SFX power supply, check. Does it work with the parts I've already told them I need.........this will be interesting. First up we needed a design to see if I could fit it all together. Next we're gonna need some hardware, obviously, so let's see what we've got to play with. The new hardware and what will become the foundation of the design, the MSI Z270 Krait Gaming motherboard. And what will be filling it's slots??? How about some HyperX Predator DDR4 RAM. 16GB of 3000Mhz. And a HyperX Predator 240GB M.2 drive. Power is going to be handled by a Silverstone 600w SFX PSU. And on the graphics front, we have the beefy MSI GTX980Ti Lightning. Water cooling parts are from Bitspower and consist of... A 360mm Leviathan Slim radiator. A Water Tank Z-Multi 200 V2 res. For the pump and top, MCP655 + D5 TOP V2 (POM Version) with the white mod kit. A Summit EF CPU block in clear acrylic. The matching clear acrylic block for the MSI Lightning. And a gaggle of fittings. For fan duties, I've snagged three Thermaltake Riing 12 fans in white cause I just like the look when they're lit. Now I guess I should put all this together...but first a shout out to the sponsors for this build, MSI, HyperX, and Bitspower.
  2. Welcome to the next project! It's one of two that I want to finish this year. The second will be in the new Cosmos C700P and soon I will also start the thread here on the forum After the 24-hour Nvidia GeForce Garage in Poland, I return to my favorite Phanteks Enthoo Evolv ATX TG. This project is for (and in cooperation with) MSI. Plan The case will be painted and airbrusher in a "candy red" color. On the front will dominate the MSI dragon in silver / gray style and two stripes. The case will be modded inside to simplify and smooth the style. Components ▪ Intel i9 7900X ▪ MSI M7 ACK X299 ▪ MSI GTX 1080Ti Gaming X ▪ Phanteks Evolv ATX Tempered Glass ▪ Seasonic PRIME PLATINUM 1200 ▪ Bitspower water cooling RAM and SSD are not yet resolved :-D Here are a couple of photos of the case and HW Everything is already home and some progress is already recorded, so very soon ther will be first update here is the current progress:
  3. Hey everyone! My name is DJ Madrid a.k.a Kryptekmodz from Ph. This time i'll making a project called AURELIO, which means the "FIRST" Filipino Made Super Car. I picked this concept because I like the way they did and I love cars. (but i don't have a car) lol :D. And the modding theme will be Pinoy Pride. That means we are able to mod a Filipino brands or Made in the Philippines. So my co-competitor which these guys are the top case modder here in the Philippines, Tantricmodz (Mhike Samsin), JPModified (Jesse Palacio), Mickee Boy Lacerna (MadMods). so this time, I'll be presenting this concept at Cooler Master Battlemodz Invitational here in the Philippines. I give many thanks to Cooler Master for picking me for this time. I would like to thank all the sponsors, Cooler Master, MSI, G.Skill for supporting my projects now and before. Concept: You may find the full details of the AURELIO Super Car, just click the link. http://www.carmudi.com.ph/journal/aurelio-first-filipino-made-supercar/ And here are my components that i will be using for this project Processor: Intel i5 6600k Motherboard: MSI B150m Mortar Arctic GPU: MSI GTX 960 2G RAM: GSkill Trident Z 4x8GB (32GB) PSU: Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G 1200w Platinum SSD: G.Skill Phoenix FTL 240GB Fans: Thermaltake Riing White 12mm (4pcs) Case: Cooler Master Mastercase PRO 3 Water Cooling: Bitspower Water Cooling

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
  6. 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.

  7. With what looks to be a full block for the CPU area of a motherboard and a large passive heat sink for the north bridge and other areas of the board, Bitspower is previewing a new fashion in liquid cooling. Full Covered Block, or FCB, combos the CPU and MOSFET cooling in one block. Also in the pic is a passive heat sink and cover for the rest of the board. Not sure if they'll be bundled, but I can see FCBs already being a hit as they offer a super clean look..

  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. Hello boys and girls, I am back with another build log. This time I will be using a Corsair C70 in Gunmetal Black. The idea is to create a nice clean fully water cooled system and to use the space inside the C70 as efficiently as possible. Most of the components that will be going into the system I already have. One item that am am on the hunt for is a motherboard. My two favorites right now are the Sabertooth Z77 board and the MSI Z77 MPower board. The build specs are as follows: CPU, i5-3570K GPU, GTX 670 Power, AX650 Mem, Mushkin Blackline Ridgeback 8GB Storage, Undecided but I do have a Force 3 60GB SSD I can use Motherboard, MSI Z77 MPOWER Water cooling: XSPC Raystorm CPU block XSPC Razer GTX 680 GPU Block XSPC EX240 or EX360 XSPC RX240 Bitspower Z-Multi 150 reservoir XSPC DDC Pump Top Swiftec Pump Bitspower fittings. As for any mods that I will be doing, not sure on everything yet but I will be replacing the window panel and I will be using custom made paracord extension cables. I would also like to try and use hard piping for the water loop. I will be editing this post with pics and updates. Here are the first pics of the case fresh out of the box. Playing with the special effect :)/> Got myself some dark grey paracord from the local army surplus store. This is the first time I have ever used paracord for sleeving, Previously I used the inexpensive plastic sleeving from Frys. The paracord is so much nicer imo. :)/> All finished with the sleeving. I wanted to do a black stripe down the middle of the cables but the army surplus store was all out of black. I am not very patient so I just went ahead with all grey. :rolleyes:/> Here are the home made tools I used to remove the pins from the plastic connectors. Update #1 I got the system together in order to plan my water loop and to allow the system to continue being useful while I wait for a new motherboard. The bottom rad mounts in the C70 where not ideal when using a thick rad so I had to improvise. Luckily the perforation on the floor of the C70 allow perfect spacing to offset the rad. I had to move the rad forward and to the outside. Still there is a tight fit. I mounted the res to the upper hard drive cage using some motherboard standoffs. Here is a shot of the full system together using the Asus Maximus IV Gene Z/Gen 3 I have decided on the MSI Z77 MPOWER motherboard which I will modify a little to get rid of the yellow accents. Here is the stock board right out of the box. And here is the modified board with brushed metal decals over the yellow accents. Update 2/3/2013 I am testing out some ideas to make the rads look better without stripping them down and painting them. Update:2/8/2013 Here are the tools I used to fit the tubing. Working on the tubing, This was my very first time doing anuthing like this, I made a few mistakes in measuring, sure glad I bought more then I needed, also the bender is not very good for this job. I was not able to make multi angle bends with it and had to change my tubing layout a little. Finished the tube cutting and fitting Tubing painted black and I am finally leak testing the system.
