Hey guys! I'm back with another sponsored project! EVGA was generous enough (as always) to send me some of their awesome hardware. This is another EVGA and Thermaltake sponsored project, and I named it "HoloView". Thermaltake was awesome enough (as always) to send me their View 27 chassis and some of their water cooling components. This will be a quick (hopefully) and simple project but will add a special feature to it (hopefully I could pull it off properly). A huge shout out to the sponsors! Here's some of the components that will go in to this project. Yesterday I was able to test fit some components and tear the View 27 down to confirm some measurements and some possible radiator placements. The plan was to rotate the computer case 90 degree so the front panel will be the bottom of the case and the top will be the front panel. Here was my plan, either I will have the 360mm radiator in front and have the 240mm radiator at the bottom or the opposite way around. Originally, I thought I could use the area below the power supply for mounting a 240mm radiator but the power supply that I will be using is a bit long and will have some interference once the power cables are connected. So instead of doing that, I will mount a 140mm fan below the power supply as intake. Now that I have a rough idea of where and what components for water cooling are going to fit in, next will be taking measurements for the custom side panel, cutting out the 140mm fan mount on the back and making the custom front panel for the 240mm radiator. But that will be for the next update. That's it for this first update for the HoloView project. Thank you EVGA and Thermaltake, as always, for giving another opportunity to me for this project! See you in the next one! Ciao!
So here we go... Good day modderâ€™s, PC artists, overclockers and fellow PC enthusiasts. I would like introduce to you my buildâ€¦ a day dream come true. I call it, the Core V1 Mini k|ngp|n Edition. There isnâ€™t that much back story to this build. It goes like this. I havenâ€™t built myself a PC since 2010. It was bonus time at my company and I was like, what the ####â€¦ letâ€™s do it. I muddled around trying to be frugal, but decided to invest into this build a bit. The processor choice bounced around from AMD FX to a core i5. I never really built an Intel machine just because of the cost. This time around, I just went HAM as Iâ€™ll future proof this build quite a bit. I wasnâ€™t really looking to water cool it nor was I really expecting the modding bug to bite me so hard in the ####â€¦ but it did. And did it put me on a mission. Iâ€™ll let the following parts like explain the outcomeâ€¦ LOL Enjoy the build, though I wish I had taken more pics and videos because this case has been modified extensively to make everything workâ€¦ better than I expected might I add. Along with all of the other one-offs I put into thisâ€¦ So in the end this bug, you know that left me in a state of needing to build build build, also led to me creating a brand that I callâ€¦ killRMODZ. One thing that I would like to note about my build ethic is that Iâ€™m very fond of small form factor builds. Why might you ask? Well because one, itâ€™s a challenge. Two, I donâ€™t like my system to occupy a lot of spaceâ€¦ though to each their own. Threeâ€¦ did I mention they are a challenge? LOL My build ethic also includes taking something factory and modify it into something aesthetically pleasing but not to a point where someone cannot reproduce it themselves or for me to create a custom one-off for them. I do have a brand so I apologize if it seems like a sales pitch as that is not my intention. Though I do think there are some mods here that fellow enthusiasts wouldnâ€™t mind getting their hands on. But let us see what the future holds for me. Lastly, I know there are blemishes. You may not see them but I know where they are. I wish I had a CNC Machine and other precision equipment. Also, this is my first time sleeving cable and water cooling. I learn very quickly and thank youtuberâ€™s for their instructional(s)!!! So be gentle with my humble build. A very special thanks to Orlando Laser Engraving (Joseph Visser) for my killRMODZ placards. Site: http://www.orlandolaserengraving.com/ A very special thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the use of his beat â€œIce Flowâ€ for my promo video. And I have to especially give thanks to the merchants and vendors from which I was able to obtain my parts for outstanding prices. Access to the vendorâ€™s stores will be under the designated partsâ€¦ Build: Case: Thermaltake Core V1 Mini http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Core-Gaming-Computer-CA-1B8-00S1WN-00/dp/B00M2UKGSM?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00 MB: Gigabyte-Z170N Gaming 5 http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-LGA1151-Mini-ITX-Motherboards-GA-Z170N-Gaming/dp/B014W2000Q?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00 CPU: Intel i7 6700K http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Boxed-I7-6700K-Processor-BX80662I76700K/dp/B012M8LXQW?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 MEM: G.Skill TRIDENTZ DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232205 GPU: EVGA 980 Ti k|ngp|nâ€¦ yep, thatâ€™s right because I can!!

Hey Everyone! Wanted to share a V1 mini build that i'm starting. This build was just supposed to be a basic build but has morphed into something that I have become extremely passionate about. And that is the artistic value achieved with modding PC with custom water cooling setups. My schtick is that I want to stay with either a mini itx or micro atx platform. ATX boxes are common. But the smaller platforms with custom water cooling you don't see often. So where to begin. Well, I feel in love with the V1 mini a while ago. Did some youtube research and found some very nice builds. So I pulled the trigger and got the black one. From that point, everything focused around that case... the build that is. So why k|ngp|n you asked?? Well, just because... LOL I want to make it fit and work and look gorgeous to the eyes. I know it will perform, but that is not the main point of my build. So on to the parts list: Core Parts- Core V1 mini Case 'black' 6700K i7 skylake 3200 Trident Z xmp 2.0 compliant EVGA 980 Ti k|ngp|n 750 EVGA PSU PNY SSD 250gb Modding Parts- XSPC Water block for i7. The new 'RED' edition BitsPower water block for k|ngp|n video card alpha cool radiator phobya reservoir MP35x Swiftech pump XSPC black chrome fittings off brand flow meter custom sleaving custom led with remote color scheme: black, black chrome, red, carbon fiber custom power switch assembly and a custom made piece that I'm not ready to show right now until i'm complete with the build. There is quite a bit more but I will be take pictures as much as I can though I starte modding the case a few weeks ago. But here are some pictures of the modified bitspower water block that I've done for this build. *Note - everything here has been done by hand with no machined parts. If I had access to cnc or laser etching things would be a lot crisper. But I think that will take away from the character this build will have. Thanks!!!
Hey hey guys and girls. We have another awesome themed mod coming your way. This one is based off of one of my favorite comic strips growing up as a kid. Spy vs Spy The Following was obtained from the History section of the Spy vs Spy Headquarters. http://www.spyvsspyhq.com/history.html Simple yet meaningful is one way to describe the wordless black and white comic strip that makes up Spy vs. Spy. The cartoon created in 1960 by Antonio ProhÃas, depicts the antics of two distinctly different yet similar spies who try to get the best of each other with clever yet strange schemes of espionage and deception. Published in Mad magazine since 1961, ProhÃas began working on Spy vs. Spy in Cuban, but fled to the United States in 1960 just days before Fidel Castro took over the last Cuban free press. When ProhÃas came to the United States he knew almost no English, but Mad magazine readers and editors quick accepted him and loved his work. Before he got the job at Mad, he worked in Queens at a clothing factory by day and drew by night in his cramped apartment. His earlier works â€œErizo,â€ â€œOveja Negra,â€ â€œEl Hombre Siniestro,â€ and â€œTovarichâ€ would not work in his new country where the idea of communism was not as prevalent or well taken by pleasure readers. In Cuba if you were not a supporter of Castro you were considered a spy, and this is where he got the idea. ProhÃas considered himself a spy and thus the idea was born. ProhÃas submitted his rough pencil concept and design sketches to MADâ€™s editors on normal 8.5 x 11 paper and would latter redraw the entire carton twice the size for reproduction in the magazine. He would go through the comic strip with pain staking detail and make sure all edges and lines were detailed in his dark bold pen and would almost never ink over his pencil drawings. Spy vs. Spy is now a national icon, symbolic of the Cold War representing good and evil and the struggle for equilibrium. ProhÃas would stealthily sign each of his Spy vs. Spy cartoons under the title panel, in Morse code, which spelled out the words "by prohias." This is one of the most overlooked details in his work. -â€¢â€¢â€¢ -â€¢-- â€¢--â€¢ â€¢-â€¢ --- â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢ â€¢â€¢ â€¢- â€¢â€¢â€¢ Antonio ProhÃas passed away February 24, 1998. His masterpiece concept of the two spies battling it out lives on in the continuing work done by his successor Peter Kuper. This project is sponsored by the good folks at. http://www.thermaltake.com/home.aspx and http://www.evga.com/ Also brought to you by http://www.v1tech.com/ Specs: Case - Thermaltake Core X9 x 2 Motherboard - EVGA Z97 Classified (Gaming System), MSi Z87 Mpower (Server) CPU - Intel i5 4670K (Gaming), Intel G3258 (Server) Ram - 4 x 4Gb G.Skill Ripjaws (8Gb per system) PSU - 1 x 550w DPS G Modular PSU, 1 x 750w DPS G Modular PSU GPU - 2 x ASUS Strix GTX 970 SSD - 2 x 240 Gb Crucial M500 240Gb HDD - 4 x 500 Gb in Raid 0 CPU Block - Pacific W1 x 2 GPU Block - Pacific Strix Water block x 2 Radiator - Pacific RL 480 x 4 Pump - Pacific P1 D5 Pump /w Silent Kit x 3 Reservoir - Pacific T33 x 4 Cables - 2 sets of Red Tt Sleeved Cables LEDs - BSMods 5050 RGB LED 16.5ft Strip /w wireless remote. The whole idea is to put two complete systems in here all cooled with one large liquid cooling system. The first shipment of parts has arrived. 2 x Core X9 Cases, 2 x Commander FX 10 port fan hub, 1 x 550w DPS G Modular PSU and 1 x 750w DPS G Modular PSU. To give you an idea of the size of the double stacked X9. On the left of this pic is the chassis from a Thermaltake A-71 Full Tower. Each Core X9 is 1 inch taller and twice as wide. Here we have One intact X9 and one completely disassembled. The Core X9 has this built in plate that can be removed from the bottom panel so you can install a massive radiator in push/pull. However this is not going to work for what I have planned. For what I want to do the entire floor has to be cut out.
