Just wanted to show off my new custom loop I just finished Building. Core V31 Case, MSI Gaming M5 Mobo, I7-7700k Overclocked to 5.3 GHZ, 8GBx2 Hyper X Savage DDR4 Ram overclocked to 3000MHZ, EVGA GTX 1080 SC2 with EKWB Waterblock, Raystorm Pro CPU waterblock, ThermalTake Pump and reservoir combo, a 280mm Radiator and a 360mm Radiator with Corsair Fans, custom RGB LED setup. Also I made that custom RGB GPU backplate with 6661 in it. A BlueRay DVDRW Drive, SSD and SSHD Drive. Random Carbon Fiber pieces. Hard Tubing and random XSPC triple seal Fittings. About to try and start my next build for the University Of Alabama's 2017 National Championship Win. Thinking of going for "The Case 900" with the MSI gaming M7 motherboard, Hard Tubing, 2 Thermaltake d5 pump reservoir combos, my gtx 1080 with a custom LED backplate of some style to represent The University Of Alabama. A black Supremacy EVO waterblock. Still Gonna use hard tubing but thinking of going with a grey and red coolant color scheme.
Hey guys! I'm back with another sponsored project! EVGA was generous enough (as always) to send me some of their awesome hardware. This is another EVGA and Thermaltake sponsored project, and I named it "HoloView". Thermaltake was awesome enough (as always) to send me their View 27 chassis and some of their water cooling components. This will be a quick (hopefully) and simple project but will add a special feature to it (hopefully I could pull it off properly). A huge shout out to the sponsors! Here's some of the components that will go in to this project. Yesterday I was able to test fit some components and tear the View 27 down to confirm some measurements and some possible radiator placements. The plan was to rotate the computer case 90 degree so the front panel will be the bottom of the case and the top will be the front panel. Here was my plan, either I will have the 360mm radiator in front and have the 240mm radiator at the bottom or the opposite way around. Originally, I thought I could use the area below the power supply for mounting a 240mm radiator but the power supply that I will be using is a bit long and will have some interference once the power cables are connected. So instead of doing that, I will mount a 140mm fan below the power supply as intake. Now that I have a rough idea of where and what components for water cooling are going to fit in, next will be taking measurements for the custom side panel, cutting out the 140mm fan mount on the back and making the custom front panel for the 240mm radiator. But that will be for the next update. That's it for this first update for the HoloView project. Thank you EVGA and Thermaltake, as always, for giving another opportunity to me for this project! See you in the next one! Ciao!
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. Site: http://www.orlandolaserengraving.com/ A very special thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the use of his beat â€œIce Flowâ€ for my promo video. And I have to especially give thanks to the merchants and vendors from which I was able to obtain my parts for outstanding prices. Access to the vendorâ€™s stores will be under the designated partsâ€¦ Build: Case: Thermaltake Core V1 Mini http://www.amazon.com/Thermaltake-Core-Gaming-Computer-CA-1B8-00S1WN-00/dp/B00M2UKGSM?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00 MB: Gigabyte-Z170N Gaming 5 http://www.amazon.com/Gigabyte-LGA1151-Mini-ITX-Motherboards-GA-Z170N-Gaming/dp/B014W2000Q?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o08_s00 CPU: Intel i7 6700K http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Boxed-I7-6700K-Processor-BX80662I76700K/dp/B012M8LXQW?ie=UTF8&psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00 MEM: G.Skill TRIDENTZ DDR4-3200 PC4-25600 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820232205 GPU: EVGA 980 Ti k|ngp|nâ€¦ yep, thatâ€™s right because I can!!

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!!!
