Hello everyone  :) 
Then I'm Bertrand but my kickname on the modding world is cucmag 
I am pleased to participate in the famous contest organized by Thermaltake 
All I can say on the mod I think realize, that revolves around wine, red wine ....

- "well that's a cooling wine in some sort  :D "

Oh! Xray! 

 

16110210495722246614603066.jpg

 

So I present you Xray! It is a little skull...

- "little !!!  :angry: "

Yes! no more than 15 cm  

- "not false....."

And he's here to present this workblog, so do not be surprised to see it often on photos, he loves it  

- "okay.... we begin with some components..."

 

16110210495822246614603067.jpg

 

Yes! we present you all the hardware that take place in the mod 

- "the first one is the motherboard"

great motherboard! an Asus Maximus VIII Formula

 

16110210500122246614603068.jpg

 

- "the brain of this config is this cpu"

an i7 6700k by Intel 

 

16110210500222246614603069.jpg

 

- "the brain still needs memory  :P "

so we have this memory array! 4 Avexir Impact of 4 Go each

 

16110210500422246614603070.jpg

 

- "for graphics...."

the eyes in some sort  B)

- "we have this GTX 1070 Strix"

 

16110210500622246614603072.jpg

 

and as we say in France, a train can hide another ....

- "we have not one but two GTX 1070 Strix !!!!"

:wub:  

 

16110210500822246614603073.jpg

 

so we need this SLI bridge 

- "indeed"

 

16110210501022246614603074.jpg

 

in terms of storage...

- "first, we have this Hard Drive"

a Seagate Fire Cuda

- "the SSHD"

 

16110210501222246614603075.jpg

 

and we have this little one 

 

16110210501422246614603076.jpg

 

- "a SSD M2 Sata of V-color"

120 Go  

- "as you can see, V has been replaced by a T  :o "

and another little t is glued next

- "Tt like Thermaltake of course!"

 

16110210501622246614603077.jpg

 

and the case?

- "not yet...."

we don't say if it is a X5 or X71...

- "the next time perhaps...."

16112106160022246614650889.jpg

16112511413122246614659581.jpg

 

which implies that we disassemble the motherboard tray

 

16112511413422246614659583.jpg

 

- "but I put aside this"

 

16112511413622246614659584.jpg

- "no.... well for this moment yes but it is waiting to receive the aluminum plates"

 

16112511414622246614659592.jpg

 

- "simulation  :) "

 

16112511414722246614659593.jpg

 

- "the purpose is to move the tray further forward, a maximum as we can"

 

16112511414822246614659594.jpg

 

- "that'all for today...."

 

16112511414922246614659595.jpg
