  1. It´s been a while since the last update but now I have some extra achievements to show you I couldn´t get the idea of including the GPU and the RAM into the Water Cooling Loop out of my head. Aquatuning sent me a "Upgrade Kit" in order to help me out with the idea. Thanks again for the kind support. These are the components included in the package: Alphacool NexXxoS GPX - ATI RX 580 M01 - incl. backplate - Black Alphacool D-RAM module (for Alphacool D-RAM cooler) - Black Alphacool D-RAM Cooler X4 Universal - Plexi Black Nickel Alphacool HF 14 S
  2. The DCMM which took place during the Gamescom in Cologne was great. There were many nice Modders and Projects. It was nice as usual to talk about this hobby which keeps us together. Here are a few pictures: These are my 2 latest Projects. Some of you might recognize The Skull of Gul'dan. The DCMM area had many visitors and it was really crowded. Many Projects had to share the space available. I´m happy that the jury liked my other Project and rewarded it with the 2. price in the category of CE-Mods.
  3. Well this is the last update before the DCMM. I had this microphone laying around in a box and checked the datasheet again. The smaller microphone was removed and replaced by the bigger one. This is the result and the final modification for this headset. I didn´t really like the SATA cables and had to remove them. Some black Sleeves look a lot better on them. Not bad, eh? These cables look more elegant too. Do you remember the Power Supply Mod? The cooling provided by the modified RGB Fan was OK but I was not
  4. And the Headset is done and still works like a charm. Just ignore the cabling. Clean looks without any cables attached. The cable I need in order to use the Headset like it was intended by the manufacturer. Don´t worry, the connection is solid and can withstand the weight of the cable. And now with a regular 3.5mm plug attached, just in case you want to use it as a replacement for Headphones.
  5. It´s time for some updates. I had to change the plug for something more elegant. I purchased a Alphacool Eiszapfen screw plug. What´s this switch used for? It´s your turn to guess. Cooler Master was kind enough to send me some further Goodies to play with. Thanks again for the kind support. What´s inside? A Cooler Master Masterpulse Pro Headset. I like the dark looks of it as well as the RGB lightning. This Headset will be modified in order to fit the Project. 1) It can be used like it was intended by the manufacturer. 2)
  6. Don´t worry, this Project is not finished yet! I´ll adjust one thing or two until the DCMM. I built another circuit which has to fit in such a small case later. And well, it does! It looks a lot better this way. Just finish the rest and also recycle some stuff like eg. FAN extension cables. What will I use the connectors for and which purpose does this device serve?
  7. And another update! My Project has won the 2. price during the Modding Masters Competition in the category of Casemods! I´m really happy about this accomplishment. It´s been a great weekend with interesting discussions and nice people. I can show you some further pictures and extra links if you´re interested.
  8. It´s nearly done guys! I received this package which contains the last missing puzzle piece. I want to thank Aorus for the kind support and for the trust. Now it´s time for the last unboxing session. A nice AORUS Radeon™ RX580 8G GPU. Features: Graphics Processing: Radeon RX580 Core Clock: OC mode: 1380 Mhz Gaming mode: 1365 Mhz (Reference card: 1340 Mhz) Process Technology: 14 nm Memory Clock: 8000 Mhz Memory Size: 8 GB Memory Type: GDDR5 Memory Bus: 256 bit Digital max resolution: 7680x4320 Multi-vi
  9. And here´s another update since I have to be ready soon for the "Modding Masters" competition. Let´s recycle some spare Aluminum first. Cut a suitable piece. What will I use it for? Use some sanding paper and drill some holes. And add a layer of clear coat. Just make sure to improve some areas. Here´s the result. It´s a DIY Backplate for the Sound Card. And another one for the smaller board. These Backplates also improve the shielding. Looks great with LED lightning too. I also got another "goodie package
  10. Ok, it´s been a while since the last update. These forums have been broken anyway. I need to be ready just before the Modding Masters in Germany. I´m still lacking a GPU but at least I could assemble the other components. The integrated GPU of the CPU is better than nothing but still suitable for first tests. Let´s start with something tiny. A DIY Y-RGB adapter for the Mainboard connector. This PCB is really tiny and will be barely visible. What will I also use it for? We´ll see later. The displayed GPU is a old ATI HD2900XT which is defective.
  11. I will show you a little update, just in time for the week end. Let´s start with another nice package. I want to thank notebooksbilliger.de for the kind support and for the trust. I wonder what´s inside? Every PC needs a brain or in this case, a suitable CPU. I got a Intel Core I7 7700K CPU. This is the boxed version which doesn´t include a heatsink. If you want to mount such a CPU in your PC, I´m pretty sure that you won´t care about a simple heatsink which is included with some specific models. In order to get the best performance you would use some he
  12. This week I have a smaller update for you. The Asrock Logo was pretty rough to handle and I needed several tries with different types of sanding paper and some Aceton in order to smoothen the surface. Obtaining a 100% smooth surface out of a middle resolution 3D Print is not easy to achieve. If you don´t grind enough you end up with a rough surface. If you use too much sanding paper you end up with visible gaps which are filled with air. Well, not too bad after several tries? I went on with further tries and used some more Aceton in order to get the best possible resul
  13. Here´s another update. The transparent CPU Cooler has 4x holes which are meant to be used by 5mm LEDs. Why not try something out? Since I still have some 5mm RGB LEDs left, why not build something suitable out of them? I made these 2x RGB modules which will be connected later with the RGB Header of the Mainboard. The heads of the LEDs are shortened. These LEDs fit into the 4x holes as expected. Let´s take care of the cabling. I had to use one of the Noctua extensions for the longer cable. Also recycle some of that sleeving material. Next I
  14. It´s time for another update! I received a nice surprise package from Aquatuning There was another CPU Cooler inside: Alphacool Eisblock XPX CPU - Intel/AMD - polished clear version This is the newest version of the Eisblock XPX which is new on the market. Let´s have a look at it. 100% transparent Plexiglas, it looks a lot different than the Eisblock XPX I´ve chosen for this Project. Clear vs Solid looks: I´m pretty sure that the clear version will look awesome in combination with my LED lightning. Which one of these CPU Coolers will
