Hello, Making my debut into modding. I've always wanted to take on a project like this where I spend my time on a build and create/mod something that is living room center piece worthy. I don't have a project name yet but I've got a build plan and am going full steam ahead. It is a learning experience as much as it is fun so please excuse my mess and mistakes. I also started a blog at www.omidmods.com but I wanted to post here because the build is focused around these great new Core X9 cases. I have been waiting for sooooo long for cases like this and now that I have the means and the time to do case modding...... I couldn't wait to start! Without further delay.... here is what I have done so far: System Specs: Intel Core i7 5820K Asus X99 Deluxe 16GB Corsair DDR4 LPX 2666Mhz 2x eVGA GTX 980 SC 250GB Samsung 840 Pro 120GB Samsung 850 EVO 2x Thermaltake Core X9 Corsair RM1000 PSU Watercooling Parts (so far): 2x Alphacool D5 Pumps 2x EK CSQ Tops 2x Primochill 240MM CTR Phase II Reservoirs EK Supremacy EVO EK Asus X99 Motherboard Block 8x EK Passthrough fittings 2x HardwareLabs Black ICE Nemesis GTX 480 radiators Hardline Tubing Fittings??? Fans??? Fan Controller??? Lots left to get and decide on Pictures: Also started a build blog: Thats all for now! I'll Post updates as I complete things.
Hi all, Just placed my order for my Core X71 (Glass) case and Corsair HX750i Modular Power supply to begin modding. Few things in mind, but firstly I want to strip the case and PSU, and change the bulk of the colour to white. Overall colour scheme will be blue, white and black, so I want the main frame white, with the motherboard tray black, with blue highlights where I can. Will remove the rivets and sand back the powder-coat, but I may do some welding on the back-plate as well. Watch this space...
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.
