  1. Hey Everyone! Wanted to share a V1 mini build that i'm starting. This build was just supposed to be a basic build but has morphed into something that I have become extremely passionate about. And that is the artistic value achieved with modding PC with custom water cooling setups. My schtick is that I want to stay with either a mini itx or micro atx platform. ATX boxes are common. But the smaller platforms with custom water cooling you don't see often. So where to begin. Well, I feel in love with the V1 mini a while ago. Did some youtube research and found some very nice builds. So I pulled the trigger and got the black one. From that point, everything focused around that case... the build that is. So why k|ngp|n you asked?? Well, just because... LOL I want to make it fit and work and look gorgeous to the eyes. I know it will perform, but that is not the main point of my build. So on to the parts list: Core Parts- Core V1 mini Case 'black' 6700K i7 skylake 3200 Trident Z xmp 2.0 compliant EVGA 980 Ti k|ngp|n 750 EVGA PSU PNY SSD 250gb Modding Parts- XSPC Water block for i7. The new 'RED' edition BitsPower water block for k|ngp|n video card alpha cool radiator phobya reservoir MP35x Swiftech pump XSPC black chrome fittings off brand flow meter custom sleaving custom led with remote color scheme: black, black chrome, red, carbon fiber custom power switch assembly and a custom made piece that I'm not ready to show right now until i'm complete with the build. There is quite a bit more but I will be take pictures as much as I can though I starte modding the case a few weeks ago. But here are some pictures of the modified bitspower water block that I've done for this build. *Note - everything here has been done by hand with no machined parts. If I had access to cnc or laser etching things would be a lot crisper. But I think that will take away from the character this build will have. Thanks!!!
  2. I can't upload images... **edit figured it out. Here:
  3. Nice setup!! Your PSU is kinda high for a single card setup, though i'm running a 750 so meh... LOL I don't think you will have issues with cooling. But, you are limited on fan locations though you can try and install fans on the perforated panels... I thought about it. This is going to be my setup which I think will blow people out of the water. There will be a lot of customizing the frame... so let's be clear with that. But on to the parts list. Gigabyte G1 Gaming 5 Z170N 6700K GSkill Trident Z 3200 mhz 16gig PNY SSD And for the cou de gras - EVGA 980 ti k|ngp|n... yes, that is right, I will fit that in there if it kills me. Then a completely custom water cooling setup, some bling, sleeving, and some fans... LOL There is probably a lot more, but can't remember off hand. Stay tuned!
  4. yes, you can... i'm going to be ordering some myself.
