adelinevoc reacted to Alan-Lee in POD II, THE STRONGHOLD
SO Hello everyone, I am never really finished with a project, but I would like to dare saying that for the time being, I am finished with the following project.
A big thank you goes out to Scan, Bit-Tech and Thermaltake, as well as all those involved in getting
this first UK trophy up and running. Thank you for including me and giving me the chance to compete against those 4 top guns here.
PODII, THE STRONGHOLD, yes thats the name of this case which should portray strenght and stability.
lets put it this way, you could drive around with it in the boot at a 100 miles an hour and this baby wont budge ot tilt or give in to the centrifugal forces. it stands like a cliff against the tides. very sturdy steadfast and rock steady. you cannot just knock it over.
I wanted it to be broad shouldered, bulgy and bulky and decided to build it more in the breadth than hight.
After sliceing the case diagonally down the middle, I set the bottom half into the POD (which actually means power on demand for me) and built the whole extra caseing around it. I used certain parts of the corex31 case too for the radiator fittings, hdd holder and panels etc..
I decided pretty quickly to modify the case unconventionally and stack the two 240er radiators in the case with heads up jutting out like two bumpers with fans and air intkes in the front.
by the way the whole case is of course built so that each and every par can be detached, fixed, rebuilt or simply unmounted for maintenance etc..
After recieving the Thermaltake chrome parts I decided that chrome was to be omni present every where. The card screws and display knobs are all covered with chrome parts left over from the jean buckle chrome tops which i used togatehr with the modified gardene fittings and chrome pipes for the overall deco set off.
I decided to go with matt black and set it off with the shiny reddish dark crimsony type red metalic like on the maninboard and SSD. that made me tinker araound with inking up the ptherwise very poppy red TT coolant to get the same tone for the water, as can be seen in the reservoirs which are placed on both sides like gatlin guns slung low.
One thiong was quite certain from the start, that I was going to make the pipes look a little more bulky and strong looking by covering them with this spring spiral tubes form teh local garden warehouse.
Seeing as i dont use automation and have to make each and every part in painss taking hand work, it was as usual hard getting both side equally symetrically precise. but I like proving that its possible.
Most of the red plates hide inirect leds underneath. I only took red ones and they have an effect module which can control three channels and make em blink, fade, flash and flicker to music as well as in certain preset effects too.
Thanks to Thermaltake for sending me extra tubes because i really had more than usual here, i needed 3 packets of flexi tubing to get both loos curled around the case in and out and working the was i want.
The rear hatch hold two fans just like the side fans too. the side fans have been mounted in a way i have never seen done before. they are not screwed in, they are just slotted in and click into place diagonally. Hence, they can be slid out and cleaned or replaced too at will by unscrewing 2 screws to take the fan covers off.
The rear hatch is magnetically clicked on and has plates with leds as well as 2 hanlde grips to hold it.
Up left on the perch is an HD webcam wich can be pitched and yawed to the required angle at will.
I even slid in a Thermaltake HDD and USB 3.0 quickdocker into the lower left side for quickly accessing temporaray data. The Hyperbeast SSD in placed at the left of the mainboard.
I made the fan holders at the side in such a way that when looking at it while standing in front of it, they look like stern eye brows frowning at you.
I integrated the switch and usb and audio panel in the front and the whole front can be unscrewed to open and fix if needed. The front should look a little like a fast car front.
All in all, that was just about it, Of course I could go on and on describing how I did what, but now will let some preliminary final pictures tell the tale. Just for the record, its the POD II with an own name called THE STRONGHOLD because I also made a POD 1 which can be seen here too.
The first POD was a totally different design and compared to this one a real tiny one. but it had power too. This one casta shadow over it as far as size is concerned though.
I hope you all like it.
PODII, THE STRONGHOLD
adelinevoc reacted to Boddaker in The Rose
Hey guys, it's time for another case mod project! This will be for my daughter this time (if you recall I did a Minecraft R2-D2 mod last year for my son).
I'll be using the Suppressor F51 for this build, as it lends itself well to the sleak and elegant design my daughter and I came up with. She wanted a pink rose themed build, so I will have a beautiful rose-shaped reservoir in the front, and all the hardware will be openly displayed on a custom one-piece angular chassis insert. All plumbing will be hidden behind the insert, except for an elegant curved water channel that spans over the motherboard to the GPU...
Here's a breakdown of hardware I'll be using in this build:
EVGA X99 microATX motherboard
EVGA GTX 970 with EK block
EVGA 550w Supernova GS PSU and X10 Carbon mouse
Crucial 250Gb SSD, and 16Gb DDR4 Ballistix memory kit
EK Supremacy Evo CPU block
EK D5 Pump top and chrome cover
EK 280mm Coolstream Radiator
EK 45Âº and 90Âº elbow fittings
Primochill Revolver fittings & fluid
Huge thanks to Primochill, EVGA, Crucial, EK, and of course Thermaltake for their continued support!
So let's get to some actual modding shall we? Seems lately I can't help but to hack into a case first thing. So after stripping it down to the frame, I taped off the area that will be cut away to make room for the new one-piece insert...
I made a cardboard template to see how the pieces will fit together. Only three pieces make up the entire insert: Back piece, angled center piece, and front piece.
After some initial attempts at bending the center piece myself, I realized I wasn't going to be able to produce the results I was looking for, so I sucked up my pride and brought the cardboard template down to the local metal fab shop and had them weld it up for me.
They did a nice job bending and tack-welding the pieces together. I can now go in with the bondo and smooth out the panels and fill in the corners.
I'm hoping to have this case done for PDXLAN 28 in July, my daughter's first lan. Stay tuned!

adelinevoc reacted to Mr.Moonjack in Connect Riing RGB fans to a commander FT fan controller
I own a commander FT fan controller and recently i received 2 Riing RGB fans (one 120mm and one 140mm) as a gift
now,my questions are:
1) Can i connect the Riing fan controller (which controls RGB leds and fan speed) to a channel of my Commander FT instead of the motherboard without damaging them? I would prefer to control the fan speed manually according to the situation as i usually do without having to open the case every time.
2) There are extension cable that allow you to take the Riing fan controller out of the case?
3) Can i connect the Riing fan controller directly to the PSU instead of the motherboard without damaging them?
4) can i connect 2 Riing fans with different sizes to the same controller?
I sincerely thank everyone who responds to me and i apologize if there are mistakes in my English (it is not my native language )
I also apologize if my questions seem trivial but i'm a beginner

adelinevoc reacted to adrian in level 10 M Hybrad mouse wont scroll
My level 10M Hybrid mouse scroll wheel is not Woking correctly. I can not scroll up or down. I submitted the form on your website over 2 weeks ago and have not gotten a reply!! It is very frustrating. I can push the scroll wheel down and drag up and down to move but scrolling the wheel up or down does nothing. All other buttons work fine and it does it when wired or wireless. The light on the wheel is also lit up. It used to randomly work then not work but and I would mash a few buttons at the same time and it would start working again but now is not working at all.

adelinevoc reacted to KrypteKPCModz in Build Log "45Deg"
Hello, my name is DJ Madrid age of 21 and also known as Kryptek PC Casemodz, I am from the Philippines. And also, thanks to Thermaltake my major sponsor for this build project, thank you so much for this oppurtunity, more power!
And now, let's go to the build.
This project will be named "45Deg" or "45 Degree", the position of the motherboard is something new in our eyes because normally many of the mods today are rotated into 90 degree or 180 degree inverted, so I decided to make a 45 degree rotated motherboard position. I'll be using Thermaltakes water cooling parts, case, power supply and Riing fans.
Here is my isometric 3D design using Google Sketchup Pro. Hope you'll like it.
adelinevoc reacted to colonelmustard93 in Replacing CPU cooler fans
I'm thinking of replacing my CPU cooler fans that are 3 lots of 120mm. The CPU cooler that I have at the moment is a 'Deepcool Captain 360'.
The fans I want to buy/replace are the 'Thermaltake Pure S 12 LED 38.9 CFM 120mm'.
However, I want to make sure the 3 sets of fans are quiet. As you can see on the second link above, each fan is 17.8 dbA. Will that make it more louder? i.e 17.8 x 3 = 53.4dbA
Here is my PC build info:

adelinevoc reacted to FlowMods in [Worklog] Project SnowLite by FlowMods
I am Filippo and I am a 20 years old italian modder! Last year I finished a mod with Cooler Master Italy, called Project Alpha, which had a lot of success! Then I had the luck to be invited to participate in a big project for Nanoxia, which invited me to Germany to build a desk pc for their booth at Computex in June 2015! I am going to introduce this new mod sponsored by ThermalTake that I thank you immensely for the support! The Mod, in white & black theme, is based on a Core X9 Snow Edition to which I decided to remove the original front and midplate and to replace them with two pieces of acrylic completely designed by me and made with laser cutting and CNC milling machine! The project includes two liquid cooling loop which will respectively cool the CPU and 2 GTX 970 strix! Each loop has a D5 pump and a 480mm radiator connected by rigid pipes while under the midplate I assembled systems with flexible tubes to facilitate the assembly operations. The threads for fittings mounted on midplate were hand made, and the work was not so easy. The hard part was being able to have a tip that does not split open the plexiglass out of the hole, I solved that problem by bringing the drill bit to changr the cut angle to the company I'm referring to the works in acrylic! All cables are sleeved by me, it wasn't easy since it's the first time i made a full sleeved cable set, but sleeves from Icemodz are amazing, and the will be cool But let me say the components of this mod, which I list below: HW: Asus Maximus VII Ranger i5 4670k 2x Asus GTX 970 Strix Thermaltake Thoughpower Grand Platinum 1200w HDD: 1TB Barracuda Ram: 4x4 DDR3 1600 Avexir Core Red Led SSD: 1x Samsung 850 EVO 256GB Loops: 2x pumps D5 Thermaltake (Pacific P1 black) 2x trays cylindrical Thermaltake (Pacific T22) 2x 480mm radiators Thermaltake (Pacific RL480) WB 2x GPU Asus Strix 970 Thermaltake 1x WB CPU Thermaltake Pacific W1 8x Fans Thermaltake Riing White LED Several fittings Thermaltake Chrome Tubes 16/12 PETG ThermalTake DP Ultra liquid Aquacomputer Aquaero 5 LT Power Adjust 3 Ultra by Aquacomputer 2 Temperature sensor to monitor the loops temperatures. I take this opportunity to thank ThermalTake and especially Andy, who supplied me with such a large number of components to build this mod to re-enter in the world of modding after a stop of some months. I also thank Mundi from Icemodz.com who provided me all the material needed to create my sleeved cables! I leave you to the photos of the progress! Filippo Thanks: Photos:
