MetallicAcid's TJ07 (working title) Proudly sponsored by: Södertälje Specialsnickeri AB Sweden Welcome to my third project!! In this project, I have planned this project to include the Silverstone Temjin TJ07S, a timeless classic of premium case. I have had an ongoing community driven planning phase over a couple of months, where I have received feedback from the public, and tried to turn that feedback into a 3D render. I have really enjoyed the entire process, and learnt many new techniques along the way. I know that this particular case has been modded probably 1,000,001 times now, so creating a TJ07 that stands out from an already well saturated crowd is already hard enough to do. To make this build even better than my previous projects is an even bigger challenge. Update 2014/03/06 Hello everybody! I know this has been a long time coming :P It is with great excitement that I announce that the project has now officially been started! I am building this project for Demis, a friend of mine. He had fallen in love with the project, and the ideas which I had visualized with the aid of SketchUp and Skindigo - 3D modelling and rendering software. There had been discussions between Demis and I regarding the colour and overall theme of this build, and in the end we both thought that a blacked out stealth build, with subtle gold highlights, with an overall monolithic feel with a simple exterior and neat interior was the best option for this project. The colour scheme comes from the X79 ASUS motherboard. I would like to now show you a visual representation of how this project will probably look like: This project may take some time to complete. This is a good thing in my opinion as it means that I can plan every detail to perfection, and execute those plans into reality with ease and minimal stress. This will be a watercooled project, but in stages. Stage 1 for the watercooling will include just the CPU, with the GPU being air cooled. Stage 2 of the watercooling will include a 2nd GPU with both being watercooled. So you can expect a Rev.1 and Rev.2 of this project over the coming months. Here comes a list of things that I plan to do with this mod: Fabricate Custom made midplate Custom made reservoir wall Acrylic window for top of case Acrylic windows for side panels Modify Extend window for top of case Window opening on side panels Pass-through holes in midplate for hard tubing New power button Sleeve PSU Prepare for painting TJ07 case Custom made midplate Custom made reservoir wall Paint TJ07 case Custom made midplate Custom made reservoir wall GPU shrouds Install Cold Zero parts Water cooling parts PC components I hope you have enjoyed the news. We are both super excited about this project, and want to see it to perfection. I hope you stick around for future updates!

Hello all! This will be my third build, second mod, and first build here on the ModZoo (that was a mouthful). Just as my first mod was, a lot of this will be trial and error. I really enjoy modifying things so of course another mod was just a matter of time. I would also like to include that I am currently a college student so money isn't all that plentiful so this build may take awhile. Although hopefully not too long as most of my parts I already have left over from my very first build. This build will essentially be for a HTPC/LAN rig so portability will definitely be up there on my list. Next is that since most of this will be parts I already own this will be a budget build for the first phase. Enough chit chat! On to the important stuff! The case I have chosen will be the Cooler Master HAF-XB because I simply love the form factor and the horizontal mobo tray that is also removable. The processor is up in the air but it will most likely be a second hand 2500k to keep prices down. The GPU is probably gonna be a 660ti or maybe a 670 if I can find one for cheap enough. Previous build (not finished yet) Phase 1- Specs Case: Cooler Master HAF-XB Storage: Intel 320 120GB SSD Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Processor: Intel i5 2500k or 3570k RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB GPU: EVGA GTX 580 1.5 GB X 2 Cooling: Corsair H100i PSU: Corsair CX750 (Bold means I already have it) Planned: Mod front heavily Cut big Poopadilly generator window in the roof Cut smaller windows in sides Vandal switch Phase 2- Specs Case: Cooler Master HAF-XB Storage: Samsung EVO 120GB SSD Mobo: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 Processor: Intel i5 2500k or 3570k RAM: Corsair Vengeance 8GB GPU: GTX 660ti or 670 in SLi PSU: Corsair CX750 (upgrade possibly) Cooling: Custom loop Custom loop: Alphacool UT60 360mm (internal) Tube res of some sort Laing D5 EK Supremacy in Nickel 1155 EK VGA block(s) Acetal+Ni Copper tubing or possibly acrylic I also decided to give Sketchup a try and I'm definitely liking it. Here is my rough idea (color scheme not final) And here are a few renders: Just a reminder that this is still in the early stages and I won't be making a lot of progress for awhile. I welcome any input on anything and look forward to your thoughts :) EDIT 24 January 2014 - Updated parts list
