So here we go... Good day modderâ€™s, PC artists, overclockers and fellow PC enthusiasts. I would like introduce to you my buildâ€¦ a day dream come true. I call it, the Core V1 Mini k|ngp|n Edition. There isnâ€™t that much back story to this build. It goes like this. I havenâ€™t built myself a PC since 2010. It was bonus time at my company and I was like, what the ####â€¦ letâ€™s do it. I muddled around trying to be frugal, but decided to invest into this build a bit. The processor choice bounced around from AMD FX to a core i5. I never really built an Intel machine just because of the cost. This time around, I just went HAM as Iâ€™ll future proof this build quite a bit. I wasnâ€™t really looking to water cool it nor was I really expecting the modding bug to bite me so hard in the ####â€¦ but it did. And did it put me on a mission. Iâ€™ll let the following parts like explain the outcomeâ€¦ LOL Enjoy the build, though I wish I had taken more pics and videos because this case has been modified extensively to make everything workâ€¦ better than I expected might I add. Along with all of the other one-offs I put into thisâ€¦ So in the end this bug, you know that left me in a state of needing to build build build, also led to me creating a brand that I callâ€¦ killRMODZ. One thing that I would like to note about my build ethic is that Iâ€™m very fond of small form factor builds. Why might you ask? Well because one, itâ€™s a challenge. Two, I donâ€™t like my system to occupy a lot of spaceâ€¦ though to each their own. Threeâ€¦ did I mention they are a challenge? LOL My build ethic also includes taking something factory and modify it into something aesthetically pleasing but not to a point where someone cannot reproduce it themselves or for me to create a custom one-off for them. I do have a brand so I apologize if it seems like a sales pitch as that is not my intention. Though I do think there are some mods here that fellow enthusiasts wouldnâ€™t mind getting their hands on. But let us see what the future holds for me. Lastly, I know there are blemishes. You may not see them but I know where they are. I wish I had a CNC Machine and other precision equipment. Also, this is my first time sleeving cable and water cooling. I learn very quickly and thank youtuberâ€™s for their instructional(s)!!! So be gentle with my humble build. A very special thanks to Orlando Laser Engraving (Joseph Visser) for my killRMODZ placards.

And I have to especially give thanks to the merchants and vendors from which I was able to obtain my parts for outstanding prices.

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!!!
