DEEPCOOL TRISTELLAR PC Case Mod

38 posts in this topic

This is my Deepcool TRISTELLAR Gaming PC Case Mod for Deepcool. I created this mod by their request to release as “Bill Owen” signature edition later this year

This unique case disrupts the traditional concept of a PC case, splits components into three cabins; three high hardness “V” shape metal frames and full metal shells ensure Tristellar has a reliable and solid structure, the system is not only for an artistic appearance, but also a great cooling performance by separating the most heat-generating parts of a PC. The case supports the latest gaming configuration, it is an excellent choice for gamer or PC builder who want a case with both high performance and aesthetics.

A well designed case enhanced by Gawd  :D

 

It's nothing short of stunning Bill!!  :wub:

 

 

Congratulations on the Bill Owen Signature Edition, thoroughly deserving of a bloke I consider to be a good friend and an individual that gives so much back to the modding communities and industry - The Best of the Best.

 

 

(yes I will be purchasing a signature edition ;) )

"From the mind of Bill Owen, god I love this thing" 

 

"Thick Aluminum is so cool"

 

"I should just quit Modding"  

 

You're not in a minority there  :D

 

It's the stuff of Gawds and legend  ;)

 

You bloody well will do no such thing!!!  :P

 

 

Paul's turn to stalk Mike  :lol:

@Cheaps, it's a great design for different paint schemes

 

@Austin, yeah, it's "break your toe stumbling in middle of night" heavy

Bill;

Stunning work sir.

Pardon me for asking a lot of questions-you have probably shared the following information elsewhere, but I just found this site and this is my first post.

Could you please share what brand Jigsaw and blades you were using to cut your sheetmetal?

Aside from a drill, perhaps a right angle cutter/grinder,  if you had to buy one tool at a time, what are your first five most important tools to own for metalworking?

Is the green tape you are using to mark and protect the case from a paint supply store?

Do you have your own CNC mill, and could you share the initmate details?
What CAD/Solids software do you prefer?

What tools do I need so I can grow up to be just like you :) ?

Checking out the link, and with joyful heart I proclaim;

You are a Metal Gawd, and in this site I have found Nirvana!

I shall now worship in silence until I have fruitful results to share with

the fellowship.

Welcome to the Zoo, please take time to check out all of the threads, there is many talented people from around the world!

 

CPU Magazine just tweeted at me.. Apparently my Tristelllar PC is on display at their Quakecon event booth, going on this weekend. It's nice to hear it's being shown at events!

Their product page states "Aluminum shell and striking paint provide a better cooling performance &visual experience, and which greatly reduce the weight of the case."

 

Deepcool was given my permission to re-create my mod however needed within their own manufacturing capabilities. (Same case manufacturing plant used by Bitfenix) Some portions of our agreement changed along the way, and I may share my experience in this collaboration in a future podcast. The announcement has gotten very good response by people outside of our community. I feared a majority of responses on the tech news sites would be negative about the pricing, but most seem to appreciate the high cost for something unique.

I'm brainstorming ideas for my next Deepcool case. Something cheaper to reach wider audience is on top of my list. My Deepcool Tristellar PC Case Mod, limited run for $599 at Newegg
