Welcome! I am now back with another build to work with. My previous build was a Phantom 410 by NZXT http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/581-phantom-410-mod-project-log/ It was a fun build wich also was very appreciated by alot of you. Wich lead into the oppurtunity of this Phantom 820 mod. At this time i i've been building in NZXT cases because i really dig their futuristic look with lots of internal space to work with. NZXT is also very good with listening to their customers reviews & opinions and i believe that they really try to do their best satisfying all their customers, no matter what sort of components they intend to put in their cases. I would love to give you some rendered pictures of what my goals is with this project but every time i've tried making something in photoshop it ends up looking like a cartoon bisquit. So you're just going to have to check back every now and then to watch the progress here. Anyway i am thinking of giving this case a red interior to match with a grey paint i will be applying to the outside of the case. Why is this project called The Big Beast? If you check back every now and then you will see why. All of the work you'll see here on these following pages will be made at my house without any 2000$ tools. I Believe That Minor Changes can have a BIG impact if done right Hope you have a great time beeing a part of my progress with this project. I have had major issues with my imagehosts. The worklog is under reconstruction Hardware for this build: NZXT Phantom 820 - Black (not for long) (CA-PH820-M1) Intel Core i7 4770k Hashwell (i'll be giving some video tutorials on how to overclock this badboy when this project is nearly finished) (BX80646I74770K) Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX (MAXIMUS VI HERO) Asus Geforce GTX 780 3GB Reference Design (With an EK backplate) (GTX780-3GD5) Asus Geforce GTX 770 DCII TOP x2 (EKWB ) Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) CL9 1866Mhz DOMINATOR PLATINUM (CMD16GX3M4A1866C9) Corsair HX 750W 80+ Gold Modular (With sleeving from Million Dollar PC) (CP-9020031-NA) Corsair Hydro H80i (Custom Loop for GPUs and CPU) (CW-9060008-WW) Samsung SSD EVO Desktop Kit 840 -Series 120GB (MZ-7TE120KW) Seagate Barracuda (ST2000DM001 64MB 2TB) Creative Sound Blaster Z (With some changes to the looks of the card) (SOUND BLASTER Z) Cooling: EK Coolstream RAD XT 360 Top Ek Coolstream RAD XT 280 Front EK CSQ13/19mm, Black Ek Supremacy Acetal + Nickel EK-FC680 GTX GTII - Acetal+Nickelx2 EK RES x3 250 Alphacool D5 PUMP VPP655T12 with EK TOP EK-PSC 90degrees angled fittings Black EK Coolant Blood Red Masterkleer 19/13 Clear High-Flexible Tubing Some of the modding materials for this build: Found on MNPCTech Dremel Rotary Discs Smoked Acrylic Sheet Black, white & Silver Pop Rivets Round Modders Mesh 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fibre U-Channel Molding Silver PC Case Tumbscrew's 6/32 thread 3M 4010 Super Strong Tape All this great stuff can be found at http://mnpctech.com/ Sleeving for this build: SLEEVE SMALL - COLOR-X SLEEVE SMALL - SHADE 19 Cable Management Clips Crimp Contacts MALE for ATX, PCIE All of this from Nils at http://en.mdpc-x.com/ This is another mod by Jompenleet! Enjoy! Lets go! Bigger in person than i thought it would be. They even attached a box to organize all the case screws for the case. I really missed this with the Phantom 410 Lots of HDD brackets... Not really useful now that that price's on SSDs have dropped during the past year Stock RGB LED controller (think its basically the same as the NZXT 5.25 HUE Led Controller. Built-in LED strip mounted at the top of the case This gives u an idea of what the stock lighting effects are Front panel is located on top of the case and hosts a 3,5mm Audio & 3,5mm microphone in. Also includes a 15W per channel Fan Controller that takes a total of 12 Fans (Had some buzzing sound with this) whilst choking my Corsair SP120 High Performance fans down to 30% of their maxspeed. Works fine with some 7v Resistors & 50% fan power.. Instead of 30% on 12v Fans Top: 2x 200mm (One included) or 2x 140mm or 3x 120mm Front: 1x 200mm (Included) Bottom: 2x 140mm or 2x 120mm Rear: 1x 140mm (included) or 1x 120mm height adjustable Side: 1x 200mm (included) Pivot: 1x 140mm or 1x 120mm internal pivot fan As you can see, this case will give me plenty of room to work with. Whatever i intend to do with this case. Comparision Phantom 410 White on the left Phantom 820 Black on the right Phantom 410 Project log (http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/581-phantom-410-mod-project-log/) Now, monkeys... Let the modding begin! First off will be dremeling, painting & sleeving. Check Page 9 for recent pictures..
This is a mod that is currently about 85% done. I am waiting on some vendors to ship me some last minute changes, but I would still like to share this with the Zoo. Basically this is my mod that I'm exiting the market with. Build something that I will not have to upgrade much in the future, and something that will be a pleasure of building, as it is my last. I love the simplistic style of Lian Li's so much. I have used LL all the way back to Citrus. This build is only possible due to someone commissioning me to build another of my Fire PC for them. Modding for me has gone through a lot of waves. From the ups and downs of modding intensity to the schemes themselves. So far this mod includes the following. Lian Li v1200 Plus Asus Z9PE-D8 Dual Intel Xeon E5-2650 8C/16T 2.0/2,9ghz Crucial Ballistix Tactical Tracer DDR3 1600 OB Crucial M4 64GB SSD Kingston HyperX 3X 120GB SSD 8tb of Hard Drive Storage Cooler Master Silent Hybrid Pro 850w MSI Radeon HD 7870 Hawk Edition Cooler Master TPC-812 Gentle Typhoon AP-15 x2 Gentle Typhoon AP-29 Cooler Master Blademaster x3 Scythe Server Kaze Controller MDPC-X Sleeving MNPCTech 120mm Fan Bezel Bitspower 360 Radguard And the pics. Serene Teardown Mainly the existing cooling and some cables. the old fx 8150 and UD5. this already has a new home. messy modular cables. need to clean those up mmm some lian li brushed awesomeness CM excalibur fans. these actually push a nice amount of air. this is my TC 6870. cannot up the voltage so it stays right at 1000mhz core. around 8000ppd the empty chassis. the mobo will fit exactly right on that tray. i will be adding a new midplate and other metal touches. old modding at its finest. Holes cut for something i never finished.... Mobo should be here tomorrow is UPS doesnt screw up, and then i can get the case all ready.
