  1. Hello! Thanks Thermaltake for the opportunity!

    Fans have arrived so I took some pictures, to anyone who hasn't caught wind of the Swafan EX line up of fans here are some quick snaps. And feel free to check out more details about them as I have used them in various builds and they are great!

    Each fan has an extra fan blade for your use case.

    Magnetic connection for each fan.

    They are beatiful!

  2. Update time! after the primer I did paint each ram with the colors that matches each theme. For this I have the first two sticks that I have finished which are the Arasaka Mantis Blade and Mox themed heat sinks. There are two more that I am still working on which are the Militech and Yaiba Kusanagi. Decided to go with four different references instead of just one then applying it on all four. I think made the modding more fun :) well here goes a barrage of pictures from the stands and the actual modified TOUGHRAM without the custom stands.

    Those are all for now, I will be back with a couple more :) have mod on!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  3.  

    Few updates today, the branding needs to go for now to i'm going to spray them primer.

    Here is a peek at the theme that I'm working on :)

     

    P1113096.thumb.JPG.cae221435df5f6438fe0f75943d68c65.JPG

     

    I am still waiting for the epoxy primer to dry and as soon as they are I will execute all the plans that I have in mind and be back with more updates. Deadline is near so I hope everything works out fine. 

     

     

  4. Update time! To remove the heat spreaders I need to get the chrome plated parts first, finger nails are great for this part.
    20201209-P1113068.thumb.jpg.d526a11555ff3facb1e3588baec8972f.jpg

     

    When they get un latched just simply pull them off.

     20201209-P1113070.thumb.jpg.bd67007ce0e75f282d65eaf9c5c6248b.jpg

    Without the chrome plated design.20201209-P1113075.thumb.jpg.6626144ec7f5a2fdf08786bf57c54977.jpg

     

    Then just slide off the upper portion.

    20201209-P1113071.thumb.jpg.d02ff32688fdec7f3032b94c92545e99.jpg

    Then you should have this at this point, now I'm ready for some heat gun action. Heat will help us remove the heat spreaders from sticking on the RAM Sticks.

    20201209-P1113082.thumb.jpg.d007262da0c8b7e85095426881959990.jpg

    It was a hard battle but we got one! hahaha just need to do this 3 more times clean them up and I should be ready for re painting the heat spreaders.

    If you are going to try something like this please be careful not to ruin your ram sticks.

  5. I was finally able to get the View 91 out of its box!
     

    This case is a joy to watercool!

    292o4ly.jpg

    I had to take out the tempered glass panels so I can move it around.

    jgo3gi.jpg

    Up front we have 3 Riing Premium Plus Fans, the controller is in the accessory box.

    2ewcw3d.jpg

    epnd54.jpg

    There is so much room at the back of the case you can mount a couple of 420 radiators

    ic30k7.jpg

    dmyx5w.jpg

    Spacer for your hard drives

    30bmc6b.jpg

    Bracket for Vertical GPU mounting though you have to pick up a PCIE riser separately.

    Annnnd!! I dismantled the case :p

  6. Hello Casemodding world! This marks the start of my worklog in this awesome
    competition, by the way I go by the name Mickee and I am a one man show on the
    road for MadMods PC Modding and I am representing the Philippines this time, Well
    let's start! 

                 

    W E L C O M E!!


    addyf8.jpg

    Here is a quick snap of the parts that I already have:

    Massive boxes!!

    xc9oaq.jpg

    I was able to unbox a few of the stuff


    2paub.jpg

    I am trying to clean up my workspace before I take the case out of the box because I really need all the space that i can for this mod.

    akfqtk.jpg

      

    I will be back really soon to post pictures of the case out of the box as well as
    the initial preparations for this project.

  7. Hi Everyone I guess this will be the last batch of Pictures for this project :( I really enjoyed working on this but then again there is no such thing as finished hehehe there will always be a few bits and bobs to be tweaked every now and then :)

    I will see you guys on the next one :)

  8. Update time :)

     

    Back to cutting some panels

    This one is for the Front panel

    bexcns.jpg

     

    For the lower side panels

    Scoring the Acrylic sheet helps a lot with the accuracy of manual cuts ;)

    Test fit

    End of the quick update thanks! :)

     

     

     

  9. After a long time I am back with some updates, Modding has stated to pick up since the construction of my little workshop is finished :)

     

    Here we go, Watercooling should be an option with this simple test bench so i found a solution where I can mount a Radiator and a Pump+Res and yes a 3d printed fan grill :)

     

    2a5bpl3.jpg

     

    2w1wkqo.jpg

     

    The plan is for it to be mounted on this position.

     

    1zlzq5w.jpg

     

    Back to the bender for a custom bracket.

     

    nysbx0.jpg

     

    Now we have this and I know this is not the best looking solution but I strongly believe that it will work for me :)

     

    242e5c1.jpg

     

    Screws on! Pump+Res+Rad mounted, it still needs additional support on the lower portion but I'll get back to that later because I want to try and watercool this now :)

     

    2mhbnnc.jpg

     

    CPU block Pacific W3 and behind it is an Intel Core i5 6600K that i forgot to take a photo of since I am too excited but I guess we've all seen that before ;)

    Pacific 90 degree fittings installed :)

    I've tested it for leaks and luckily there was none, Some of the parts for this mod are being detailed already and those will be up on the next updates ;)

     

    later!!

     

     

     

     

     

     

     

  10. This gonna be a sick build man cant wait for more!!

     

    Hey man! thanks for checking the build log, you got a handful of awesome builds and you work super fast :)

     

     

    Hi, I am very sorry for the lack of updates it was due to the renovation that is still ongoing and my modding area is part of it but now I am back as I've found a 
     
    small spot where I can continue my work :) I have also brought in some help with the help of a vinly cutter and a 3d printer which I got a very deal on yay! So I 
     
    have some updates :)
     
    First off I have manually cut a couple of EVGA logos with a scroll saw, these will be put on each side of the sliding panels.
     
    eg3hjd.jpg
     
    I spent most of the holidays with the family and the 3d printer lol, It was frustrating at first because I have zero Ideas on how it works but after plenty of 
     
    playing and tinkering around as well as reading I guess I got some decent prints or usable at the very least :) I do not know how to make my own designs just yet as 
     
    I am still focused on understanding its dynamics as a whole so I just print stuff that I find online which suits the mood for the project ;)
     
    Something has to hold the PSU on the test bench so..

    For the GPU

    ndus9.jpg
     
    One of the things that I've learned a few days ago was converting JPEG files to ohh I forgot the file format haha then to STL as a 3d printable file, so I tried it 
     
    on the Gear up logo and wow it worked :) then I just made a few adjustments to better suit my taste.

    Short update but there will be more to come soon!
     
    see ya' around! :)
  11. Hi everyone I am back with a few

    2nmxzd.jpg

     

    My handwriting is super bad lol

     

    2iaxwdl.jpg

     

    Removing those 2 thumb screws will make the mobo tray pop off the it's base.

     

    2u977fa.jpg

     

    Yes in every project I have to mess one two or three things up lol have to 

     

    retouch one of the stand offs as it was not on point,

     

    hs042f.jpg

     

    The Z170 Classified K fits right on top of the custom tray :)

     

    2llhqgl.jpg
