  1. Hello guys Last year I Bought a Corsair 750D Airflow Edition, I was planning to move my old parts to it, here she is next to my previously modded Antec (Antec Previous Mod worklog here) : http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/2528-aio-coolermaster-280l-mod-another-episode-of-my-antec-1200-dragon-edition/ The main purpose Of the New Corsair 750 D Case was to make a custom loop for my CPU As I never did a custom loop & watercooling parts are quite rare where I live, I started to buy some second hand parts : - Magicool 360 Slim G2 Radiator - EK-CoolStream RAD XT (120) - XSPC RAYSTORM Waterblock : I had to repaint the damaged bracket, & polish the copper base - Swiftech D5 – MCP 655 - Some Barbs & compression fittings that I had to repaint. My good Old EK Bay Reservoir. After some tests, & panels cuts I ended up with this result I wasn’t satisfied with the result, looked ugly & saturated , I decided to change the plan .....
  2. I'll start off with some minor eye candy, my personal PC as it is today, and then describe a few ideas I have for the 900D case. Intel Core i7-8700K @ 5GHz (No tweaking as of yet, so more room to grow here) ASUS Maximus X Formula Z370 Motherboard SLI ASUS Strix 1070's @ 2026 ea 32GB Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4 @ 3200 Samsung 960 Pro 512GB M.2 Seagate FireCuda 2TB SSHD Corsair AX1200i Power Supply Phanteks GPU and CPU blocks EWKB radiators, fittings, and pump/res combo Mod One custom sleeved extensions Corsair Crystal 570X Case The Goal: To modify and re purpose my old 900D case (I have new side panels, top panel, and some accessories arriving today). - Cut out the 5.25" bay cage - Modify the front panel and I/O - Replace window panel with Tempered glass - Repaint exterior/interior - Develope a theme (Black, grey, carbon, etc...) - Have this finished by March of 2019 I will add more as I come up with it, I'm still in the planning phases, and I'm still looking for some replacement parts (New bottom panel for the 900D, one of the bottom door hinges bent it out in one spot, and I may have to replace it).
  3. 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

    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 : Crucial ballistix tracer 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.
  5. 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.

    Project ITX Treasure

    Project – ITX Treasure Hi all its been a while since I have done any mod project, but that’s down to moving from London to Kent and popping out my best mod ever my son AJ. Anyway back on track and welcome to the new build I am about to embark on this time. Back in 2010 before mini ITX gaming was even a thing I scratch built a mini ITX gaming rig, since then I have done quite a few mods, but have yet to venture back to mini ITX and with so many sexy and great looking mini ITX builds coming around and on the web, I thought this time round I would try something different and by different I mean scratch the case, scratch any ideas of making my job easy and put myself into a corner. So I present to you my latest build based on a pirates treasure chest, first off though I would like to give a big thanks to the sponsors of this project without who this would of never got off the ground. Website/Facebook/Youtube A big thank you goes out to the guys over at ekwb for stepping up and supplying the watercooling solution for this product, they were kind enough to supply everything that I needed for this build and more. Website/Facebook/Youtube Also a massive thanks to gigabyte for supplying the GA-Z170N-Gaming 5 mini ITX motherboard for the project something that will be needed in such a small form factor due to limitations I have on size. Website/Facebook/Youtube A big thank you to Corsair for supplying the SFX PSU, Memory and SSD for the Project Website/Facebook/YouTube Thanks to Dremel who seem to step up on every build and supply me with accessories and tools. Website/Facebook/Youtube A Massive thanks to the guys over at XFX too for managing to grab me a AMD Fury NANO for the project, this again is another important piece due to the size limitations of the project. Well let’s begin shall we and show you what the plan is roughly, first off let’s take a look at what is going to house all these products. Yes that’s right I chose a small treasure chest, to give you some context on how big this chest is in real life here is a picture of the chest with some of the boxed hardware and products that have arrived. Yes already you may be thinking I am crazy, but in all honesty I am thinking the same thing too and all that is meant for this little chest and that’s without taking into consideration I have to fit a PSU inside this chest too.. let the fun begin as well as the headaches as I attempt to do this. Until the next post :D
  7. 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. Hardware: Case: Fractal Design Define R5 CPU: Intel i7-4770k Mobo: Asus Z97-AR RAM: G.Skill Sniper 16GB 1866 DDR3 (2x8GB) GPU: Asus GTX 970 Strix (x2) SSD: Samsung 950 Pro M.2 512GB SSD: Samsung 850 Pro 256GB SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 120GB HDD: Western Digital Green 3TB PSU: Corsair AX860 CPU Block: EK Supremacy EVO - nickel GPU Block: EK Full-Cover - nickel (x2) GPU Backplate: EK retention backplate - black (x2) Radiators: Hardware Labs Black Ice Nemesis 280GTS (x2) Fans: Noctua NF-P14s Redux-1200 PWM - 140mm (x6) Reservoir: Barrow quartz glass - 170mm Pump: EK D5 vario Top: EK-XTOP Revo - Plexi Fittings: EK & Barrow - matte black Tubing: Alphacool HardTube 10/12mm Carbon Coolant: Mayhems X1 - custom mixed color Lighting: Darkside Connect UV LED's & NZXT Hue+

    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. ------
  9. 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.
  10. EK announced today that they're introducing a new line of compression fittings for flex tubing as well as showing off a new barbed fitting. The new compression fittings will be low profile, either 8mm or 9mm depending on the model. Similar to other models on the market the low profile compressions and barb fittings can be installed with an allen wrench to save your fingers. Also, both the new Advanced Compression Fittings and the new barbed fittings are available in a wide array of colors and standard water cooling tubing sizes. Full press release for the EK-ACF here.

    Project: Infinity

    Hello, I present to you the Infinity, a personal project that is under development. The project is already in progress for several months and have i’ve done regular updates on various places on the web, I decided to enter here too ;) Thanks to all those who have supported this project with a special thanks to my Father. Always been a goal for me to have a real computer (situations in life like school and work sometimes make choices in laptops). The purpose of this machine, it’s not just gaming, i will use in video and 3D renderings, and of course terms of photography (some already know what is "my thing"). Also want to add that it is my first project, and it really have much value to me, few understand this value. Hardware: Case: NZXT H440 (White) Processor /CPU/: AMD FX 8350 Unlocked Graphics /GPU/: Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 780 DirectCU II OC Motherboard: MSI 990FXA-GD80 RAM: G-Skill Ripjaws 2x8Gb (16Gb) @1833 Mhz Power Supply /PSU/: Corsair RM850 SSD: Crucial MX100 256Gb HDD: Seagate Barracuda 3Tb WaterCooling: Water/additives: Water: Tudor Bi demineralized Color: Mayhems Dye Dark Blue 15ml Biocide: Mayhems Biocide 10ml Anti-Corrosive: AntiCorro-Fluid 50ml Bomb: Alphacool VPP655 - T12 Bomb Top: Alphacool HF D5 TOP - Plexi G1/4 Reservoir: Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex Pro 15 LT Radiator: Alphacool NexXxoS ST30 Full Copper 360mm Tube: Masterkleer tubing PVC 16/10mm (3/8"ID) clear Fans: 3x Noiseblocker NB-eLoop B12-3 Bionic fan 1900rpm CPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-Supremacy EVO - Nickel GPU Block: EK Water Blocks EK-FC780 GTX Ti DCII - Nickel Backplate: Feita em acrílico e personalizada (updates em breve) Fittings: Monsoon 16/10mm (ID 3/8" OD 5/8") compression fitting's Monsoon 16/10mm (OD 5/8") Rotary 45° - White Monsoon 16/10mm (OD 5/8") Rotary 90° - White Monsoon screw plug G1/4 - White T-piece inner thread G1/4 - compact – knurled - MSV I took several pictures of the water cooling products, the objective is to see in more detail and also what brings in the boxes. Since they are 96 photos i cant post here on the forum :( This LINK is an album with all the photos mentioned in my official facebook page. Peripherals: Monitor: Benq XL2420T 3D Speaker's: Harman Kardon SoundSticks III Mouse: Razer Lanchesis 5600 Dpi's Keyboard: Steelseries Apex UPS: APC Back-UPS CS 650 Webcam: Logitech C920 [ Gamepad's: Microsoft XBOX 360 (PC) Extras: LED's Light's: NZXT Sleeved LED kit 2m (24 white LED's) Sleeves: MDPC-X (grand bleu+ white-x+ black) Cable Combs: E22 Clear (24; 8; 6) Card Reader: TRANSCEND USB 3.0 MultiCard Reader The choice of components and peripherals was not easy! The objective was a harmony between performance/quality and price. Some of the peripherals i acquired over time and due to its good state of preservation and functionality, until they prove otherwise they will continue in service! Yes, I know, I challenged many odds and divide opinions, i always have the last word and the final decision. I feel that I did my decisions well and I can say that everything is in harmony as tested after the assembly, using the term "no fan boy" machine was also created to show that you don't need follow the "manual"/"opinions" and create a machine with one or even two reference marks, i've created this machine with a variety of brands and, believe it is a pleasure saying that at the end of all the research work of compatibility between parts everything works! Challenges: Undoubtedly a major challenge was the sleeving of the cables, despite having been advised to buy extensions, i wanted to do "by hand" a complete sleeving on the original psu cables. An adventure, which is risky and most often does not pay. Let me explain, if you have experience in this area, and you have done sleeving already and have the necessary materials, go for it! You can create something unique and personalize your way, and you can even save a few $ . Speaking from my experience in this field, i've never done sleeving, I saw some videos on YouTube, but thats not enough! Each case is different, and I can tell you that it takes experience to do things correctly is a challenge I am willing to help others to overcome some barriers that I had. I bought the sleeves in MPDPC X-site, are of good quality. Right now, I have the following cables sleeved CPU (8pin); Motherboard (24pin); GPU (8 + 6pin) by me, i also have more thats comes already sleeved (LED’s; Fans). The first cable that i started was the CPU and as I said the experience was still not much, so it was not as perfect as I wanted, but i can re-do ;) General advice: Check (and check again) that you have everything you need; is very important do a very good mapping of the pins of the connectors before removing. Another challenge was the cable management. After several suggestions and opinions like: velcro; cable ties and etc … Then i found a better way, check the photos bellow ;) LEGO Modding: LEGO marked my life in a special way and have a meaning for me, in terms of this project, don't you agree with me when I describe how LEGO is timeless and functional while keeping the simple design !? The harmony between the LEGO and the system is unique and very functional, making the ability to make different look’s. I order the LEGO baseplates (white color) in the bricklink website, and believe me now is easier to find ;) The baseplates arrived, then i proceed to cut them. It is not easy to cut these baseplates, i suggest a sharp x-acto. I hold the baseplates to the case with a strong double sided tape (thanks Sergio Lima for providing the tape). The photo bellow show the hole i made in the case to drain the loop, its the lowest point on the case ;) A view from the two areas with LEGO's. This is the Showboard zone. (FUN SHOT) Ive got awesome minifigures (FUN SHOT) Polar bear want a piece of Infinity. (FUN SHOT) Inception, a laptop inside a desktop. LEGO LED holders This is just an example of a simple way using LEGO's to make a baseplate in horizontal. (FUN SHOT) Too fat ?! My GPU can hold LED's in the Showboad area. LEGO's selected to use in the box, all within in the color scheme. The Showboard The objective is to show something customized by printing on vinyl. Below there are photos showing the dimensions (with margins), and a photo that only serves to realize the place in question and the proportions (let me make clear that they are not final photographs from the project with the quality that I intend to). I already made some awesome design’s ;) PS: I want to remind everyone that Showboard is modular and uses LEGO to hold on the baseplate that remains behind the Showboard! And I do not want in any way minimize the importance of LEGO in my project! Dimensions / Print Margins: More real perspective through some photos: A simple behind the scene: Initial photos of the project and mounting hardware: Mounting hardware date: 28 June 2014 Water Cooling The water cooling system was completed and in operation on 15 October 2014. A big Thanks to everyone who helped João Pedro; Ricardo aka r1sKas from the BenchX website and Luís Alves aka Shuper 'Luu' from Moda'a'foca forum. Here is the first video, moments after filling the loop, you can see the addition of color in the loop (Mayhems Dye Dark Blue), the first drop is always special! However I've done other tweaks and additions since the video: re-adjusted the tube coming out of the GPU to the reservoir and added an awesome LED’s lighting. The Infinity Project is not just the case, it's the whole setup that surrounds it. Keyboard SteelSeries Apex The water cooling ambient | Believe me when i say in person is way better. Future This project not finished, there are still three main thing’s that i have to do. - I want to control the fans 120mm (every 7 of them). - Tempered Glass side window. - Backplate for the graphic card, waiting for resolution and I really need some help overclocking Infinity components to a stable 24/7 OC. Thanks for the opportunity for sharing my Infinity project, i always like to see your feedback ;)
  12. 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.

  14. EK is showing off their new dual bay res to fill up some of that unused space in your case. The combo platter features sleek black acetal construction and is used in conjuncture with a D5 pump. The unit can be purchased with or with out a pump for around $115 and $200 respectively (prices listed in Euros and with VAT).

  15. This is a slide show How to on Hand Crafted Fabrication. Some amazing things have been crafted using basic tools and techniques long before CNC mills were ever invented. I want to pass on what was taught to me so that it might help other modders that don't have access to a mill or just want to take on the challenge of making things with basic tools. I have great respect for those that have the ability to program a CNC Mill to craft computer parts, some people would have you think there is no skill in that and I totally disagree. Those are just different skills than I have. There is a great satisfaction in hand crafting pieces so enjoy!

    Project: Guilty

    Hi fellow modders, It was a matter of time but here it is... my first real scratch build Thanks to Nate from E22 for the design. Sometimes you see a design with a wow factor. This happend too me with this design. After some consultation we decided to try to build this design. Nate the design and I'm building. Sponsored by: And designed by: The design: The hardware that comes in is still a suprise...even for me ;)/> , but anyway there will be an SLI set and some cool watercooling After buying aluminum strips and other stuff at the hardware store, it was time to start building. After some fitting and measuring the frame was created. I still had an old Mobo tray from a old TJ07. Cut some plates of acrylic and placed it. For measuring I have an old blown up Classified. Made the door/ cover for the PSU And cut to size the front plate Now it's a matter of drawing lines on the inside. The result after sawing and filing. Cut holes for the fans at the front and the lid on top covered with acrylic Covers closed Placed some nice 120mm http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html" href="http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html]http://www.highflow.nl/fans/ventilatoren/northq/northq-120mm-3711rl-silent-tornado.html">NorthQ fans to see how it looks. More updates coming very soon ;)/>
  17. F/A 18 HORNET Blue Angels / U.S. Navy Tribute to our military *UNAUTHORIZED (I'll explain later)... Inspiration for this project in addition to paying tribute to our finest was having some POWERFUL fun with a MOD/Build project. Purple Heart ~ MERIT and Screaming Eagle ~ Medals of Valor were solemn and serious, I need to have some fun so here it is. The BUILD LIST is as follows: Thermaltake Technology Inc Armor Plus Case Thermaltake BigWater 760 Pro Cooler Master Silent Pro 1300W Hybrid PSU ECS Z77H2-A2X Deluxe Golden Board Sapphire Technology HD 7970 Dual X GPU Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB DDR3 SDRAM 1866 Corsair Dominator Platinum Light Bar Upgrade Kit Intel Labs / Intel CORE I7 3770K Intel Quad Core 3.9 Ghz 8Mb cache Junpus DX1 Nano Diamond Paste ADATA SX900 128Gb SSD X 2 Corsair FORCE GT 240Gb SSD EKWB EK-KIT L240 Cooling Kit 1 x Masterkleer Tubing PVC 13/10mm (3/8"ID) UV-reactive Black 3,3m (10ft) 2 x EK G1/4 plug with O-ring 2 x EK-CSQ Adapter 45° G1/4 Nickel 2 x EK-CSQ Adapter 90° G1/4 Nickel 1 x EK-VGA Supremacy - Nickel (EK-VGA-SUPREMACY-NP) Fitting Size 1/2" Barb for 1/2" ID tube AeroCool Touch-2000 Controller AlphaCool NexXxos Monsta Full Copper 240 radiator Enermax: 3 X T.B.

Very few had the foundation for this project and modable to the concept. BEFORE: ~ The Case MOD ~ Sanding the plastic before primer Every piece is rubbed with a Wet Sand of 400 then 800 before prime I'm working on a AirBrush and Paint Shop for help but until that is accomplished it's rattle cans Even in the summer time I like tree decorations of the MOD Type: I discovered the hard way you MUST let your paint rest for 2 days before final clear work: Next up for MOD is the RAZER Keyboard and Mouse: After I finished here I signed up for school at TECHSPOT. CAD Autodesk Inventor, Sand Blasting, Powder Coating, Laser and Water Jet plus a MAJOR Giant CNC bed Machine. Future builds will be so much better. However, this rattle can job isn't too bad. ~ CASE ~ After primer I did 3 coats of color, wet sanded 1000 then 2000 grit between coats and cleared 2 coats with very fine wool between ~ Keyboard and Mouse ~ After primer I did 3 coats of color, wet sanded 1000 then 2000 grit between coats and cleared 3 coats with very fine wool between added an extra clear coat to items that will be handled Some "MOD" fun. Not sure I like this much so I'm making these elements easily removable. This is not finished as I play around with ideas TAIL FINS I made them from Foam Board, Vellum paper (like a plastic paper). I plan to use body filler for finer detail elements in the wings. Added some Missles to the tips of the wings as in the pictures. Added a RC Jet Canopy to the slide back tray cover. Lutro0 Customs donated a Customized U.S. Power Cord Very simple Pin Stripe Details added

    Real gold plated fittings

    Firstly, this is not my work, I'm just posting for the sake of sharing because this is too cool to miss out its a friend of mine who is active in a local forum where I come from (Indonesia) his forum name is Sectionsone he's limited with his English, but man some of his work and modding are top of the line where I come from so this is a REAL gold plated fittings, he's done it just for experience and trying I've never seen anything like this has been done before but I might be wrong
