  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.  

     

     

     

    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!

     

     

    I can't upload images... **edit figured it out.
