  1. UPDATE The latest update is here. Finally :D RAMs are ultimately HyperX Fury 64 GB and the SSD is Kingston KC1000 480 GB At the top after the adjustment, a 360 mm radiator was placed so as to cover as little of the board as possible, and it was also possible to get well enough to the frames The first link is already in place The last and ultimately a bit difficult task - somehow to connect down with the pump all together Pump on site Lighting test Just mix the water and fill it And also clean up the table a bit :D I'll add the final photos this week
  2. Thanks man! Here is more! ------------------------------------------ UPDATE Another update is here, finally :D Continue drilling of 20 mm holes for fittings passtroughs. Here it really pays 8 times measuring, one times cutting :D For a long time, I thought about how the whole circuit would merge and eventually lead one hose under the top cover, and so it would not be visible. The entire combo reservoir, radiator and many fittings :D Bitspower tube in beautiful red color, to the rear fits perfectly The pump will again be hidden in the bottom of the case. It's getting nicely done Super 3D printed cable holder Cables are from CableMod, for which I thank them very much. These are the new version PRO cables with aluminum cable combs custom made for this project Even more sleeved power cord and cat6 ethernet cable. And of course 24 pin
  3. Welcome all to my new project! I wanted to start this project before Christmas, but time was not like that anymore.. but the new project is here! The name of the project is based on the name of the C700P case and is a little modified due to the Formula X motherboard, it has not some deeper meaning :D Schedule: The case offers 3 baseboard mount styles: Classic, Reverse, or Chimney. Mostly I like the reverse at the moment but we will see which style will win :D The whole case will be painted and airbrushed in blue and maybe some other colors + some logo. The whole concept is blue and gray black. Components: Intel i7 8700K ASUS FORMULA X ASUS STRIX GTX 1080 A8G TeamGroup DARK PRO 32 GB DDR4 TeamGroup L5 3D SSD Cooler Master V1200 Platinum Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120 Cooler MasterCosmos C700P EKWB complete water cooling Peripherals - keyboard, mouse and headphones - also from CoolerMaster The Cooler Master C700P is a real treat. Highly modular with the ability to divide it almost completely Here is the complete of all goodies from CM to this project! Huge thanks!! And some progress. Dismantling the case really goes into the last piece and quite easily More to come very soon!
  4. UPDATE Before Christmas and during them I did not get time to write the update, until today .. GPU Block from Bitspower before polishing And after polishing, a noticeable difference and I like it more It is time to break the warranty seal and equip the card with the water block :D The card is even without a cooler a heavy piece of HW What I like is that when installing a water block it is still possible to use the original backplate The graphics car dis ready for water Inside the block is a RGB strip, at first I wanted to get it out completely :D But after that I like the RGB in the block so much! Assembled Bitspower CPU block on motherboard The board has a well-designed cooling for two M.2 slots Motherboard is inside the case wohoooooo! it starts to draw Graphics and the first planning of the loop - x hours of thinking, came along It is getting shape now Two radiators and reservoir are just right for this case More soooon!
  5. UPDATE I sprayed the sheets inside the case with a filler and then two layers of matt black paint. The sheets are still rubbed and scratched and other layers will be sprayed, but I did not want to work with HW and greasy sheets :D The top 360 rad is a little nut in this case, if you want to see the motherboard pretty well and do not cover the radiator with the fans. That's why I decided to mount it even higher than usual. For sure even through this sheet that I left from the Hex Gear cabinet. Another very important part of the whole casemod - red screws: D For PCIE graphics cables I print on a 3D printer cable holder / organizer that will be mounted on the bottom plate and the cables will go through. First but a few measurements where to place the holder Already in the first update, you might notice sources from Seasonic. It's the model PRIME PLATINUM 1200 Exputed from Bitspower Holders still had to pull out due to polishing of the end parts. That "frosted" style, or how to call it, does not fit me Before polishing And after polishing Holders are divided into several parts and assembly is a question of 8 screws and then another 4 on the radiator. In the meantime, I also sprayed the legs of the case on the matt black and mounted them back. Cable organizer is already in place Just like the sheet on the side, which will not have to be further colored and will remain where it is During these works I managed to solve the RAM and SSD :D More in the next update!
  6. UPDATE After painting both layers of red it was beautiful red. Before the dragon spraying, the red was clear coated (just in case). Fortunately, the MSI logo has been delivered in the vectors, so cutting the template on the plotter was easy fun :D First of all, the stripes, seal everything thoroughly and then the silver glitters onto. Hot stripes Back to the case, I mounted 240 rad of Bitspower and also reservoir with premium aluminum holders - really a piece of art Whole loop is by Bitspower! Many thanks for the support!. You can see their offer on their eshop and shop there after registration http://www.bitspower.com.tw Blocks, radiators, fittings, expa, pumps, tubes = 100% Bitspower water loop The loop will be with 240 rad in front and 360 on the top. Both 30 mm thick. The top rad is from Touchaqua - Bitspower. Next object of modding was nickel plated Bitspowe Cpu block. Painting it in candy red color. First, carefully seal to ensure that painted are only those areas that do not come into contact with water. Vuala. Bitspower Candy red block is here :D Two more photos with DSLR More next time! :D
  7. UPDATE The beginning is always quite clear – take off from the case everything that will be modded or completely out :-D All aluminum parts on this case will be sprayed, the front and top panel on the red + airbrush stripes and MSI dragon and legs of the case on black. The red color will be exactly this mazda shade. It's such a metallic / candy red color Spraying is carried out in two phases. The first mix comes in red and silver, and then some transparent candy red color is applied. After the first phase it did not look pretty, I was a little afraid :-D But the other layer really changed a lot, and the color is exactly what it should be. This is just a quick flash photo. After finishing the first paint spray, it was time to mod to the interior of the case. Here are some photos of HW from MSI. Motherboard MSI X299 M7 ACK with i9 7900X processor and MSI GAMING X 1080 Ti graphics card :-) This is how case looks with all accessories, covers, etc. After removing all the unnecessary :-D The case will be completed with sheets that make the appearance look and hide all unnecessary holes, But there was a tiny fault a part of the case peeking beneath the plate, which I would probably have to cut out to avoid unnecessary disturbance. More soon! :))
  8. 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:
  9. FINAL PHOTOS!! Finished Thanks to all sponsors!!
  10. Last update Next one will be with final photos Lots of measuring for tubing so in the end it will be all accurate and straight. Bitspower passthroughs The parts I cant imagine my loop without The most measuring was with the graphics card but it paid off This tube will be hidden by custom reservoir on the top GPU with block and all fittings prepared, just to put it in The next and nearly last tubes I am really happy how this cable 3d printed comb came out! Huge thanks to CoolerMaster for this amazing PSU V850, keyboard MasterKeys PRO L and mouse MasterMouse LITE S Last tube and its finished! Filling time! :D
  11. Airbrush on the case is finished! Also the clear coating on it and polishing. The BIG gold TUF logo Also the Bitspower on the front side. Finally I know how the entire water loop will look like. There goes lot of time to measuring holes for tubing because every mistake will be very noticeable. But it went fine Next step was to drill same two holes on the bottom of the case. And here are all amazing fittings from Bitspower for this project. All in True Brass color - they are just amazing and super quality. Middle step with drilling was also cutting the hole for PCIE cables for GPU. All cutted and drilled finally :D 3D printed part coated with matt black paint. PCIE cabling with printed cable comb and also with 4 Icemodz black cablecombs. Custom sized hand maded cables from Icemodz.eu (sleeving, cable combs, clips, connectors...). Be sure to check out their eshop with amazing stuff for amazing prices http://www.icemodz.eu In the next update I will place the pump in the bottom of the case. There is really not much space but it should work out. Also few photos of D5 pump combo kit (TOP and gold mod kit). More sooon!
  12. Here is next update! In april I have not much time because I have to complete one computer for ASUS CZ office. Airbrush and clear coating on this case is finished and only remains polyshing. Update about airbrush will be very soon! For now I have placed in case MB, GPU and RAM. Thanks G.Skill for amazing support of those RAMs TridentZ DDR4. Black 16 GB 3000 MHz. As always beautiful watercooling from Bitspower! Whole loop from BP, here are few photos, photos of fittings and etc will be in next updates. I took off the cover from the GPU block. I like it more in "classic" style. Also in few moments I took off this black terminal and installed clear one. So far the biggest PCB I have :D Acrylic parts of the block will be polished for better look. Painted backplate and also the red part on the core. Rear 140 mm fan I changed to white - it looks better. Back side of case has 2 positions for 2,5" disks. Here is 512 GB SSD without sticker ADATA. For 3,5" disk I have to make new position, because the original place - in the bottom of case - will be "filled" with D5 pump. Here will be placed 3,5" 2TB Seagate Barracuda. Holes for PCIE power cables I did not laser cut because I was not 100% sure about their position :D But the idea is to cut hole, fill with cables and cover with this 3D printed part. I have 3D printer for only few weeks now, so it is not 100% calibrated yet and it was not super expensive, but quite good result More soon!
  13. Second part of the reservoir is finished. CNC machined out of 10 mm clear acrylic. Before photos of completed reservoir here is how I planned loop for this computer :D Some drilling in old motherboard and with old blocks. Few screws and here is my plan for this loop :D Finished reservoir. Countersunk screws will be painted in gold as the whole loop will be with Bitspower True Brass fittings. O-Ring is 3 mm diameter. Next part will be airbrushing outside parts of the case. All in the style of the motherboard - white and grey digital camo. On the fron big TUF logo. TUF logo will be in this colors Also I have recently finished one of my pinkiest projects :D
