Hi I'm colin Mcnally from consett in durham. Iv been building gaming PC's for around 10 years when I started sim racing after moving from console's. The last 2 years iv started doing full custom water loops in mine and a few friends PC's. This will be my first themed build so I thought I would include my other hobbie/passion which is motorbikes. Project motogp will include moving parts and a motorbike stand. I'll like to thank all the sponsors for all the hard work in these tough times for making this possible. The first parts from scan arrived yesterday which include ThermalTake View 51 Snow ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming ASUS Radeon RX 5700 500GB Seagate FireCuda 520 14TB Seagate IronWolf Pro 850W Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 Thermaltake Pacific Hard Tube Water Cooling Kit Thermaltake Pacific V-RX 5700 Series Plus GPU Waterblock Thermaltake Water Cooling Pacific Hard Tube Bending Kit 300mm Thermaltake TtMod Sleeved Cables 300mm Thermaltake TT Premium PCIe Extender With more parts coming soon I'll be starting my build in the next few days and will post as much as I can. Thanks again to Thermaltake Scan computers AMD seagate Asus Ttuk2020casemodchallenge I'll also like to wish the other 4 competitors the best of luck stay safe and have fun building.
Hi All. My name is Chris and I am from Scotland. I have been dabbling with tech ever since I got my Commodore 64 back in the '80s, but did not get my first 'proper' PC until I threw together a bunch of other peoples' leftover parts. Oh yes, my Pentium II @ 400Mhz with a Riva TNT2 PCI card was quite the beast; or maybe not 😢. I served in the military for a total of 8 years, then briefly worked in I.T. before starting a career within the Civil Service. Tech and Gaming have both been passions of mine now for several decades, but it was only recently that I returned to higher education to pursue a tech-related degree. In my spare time I play my fair share of video games, but also enjoy the outdoors as much as I can. I am very humbled to have been selected as one of the five contestants for the Thermaltake UK 2020 Case Mod Challenge, and hopefully my build progress can at least put a smile on your face during these difficult times. Speaking of progress, it will be a few weeks until I get started building I am afraid; as I am in the final weeks at University. But as soon as my online assessments and dissertation are out of the way, I will post regular updates. The first shipment of components arrived just yesterday, consisting of: ThermalTake View 51 Snow ASUS ROG STRIX X570-F Gaming ASUS Radeon RX 5700 500GB Seagate FireCuda 520 14TB Seagate IronWolf Pro 850W Thermaltake Toughpower GF1 Thermaltake Pacific Hard Tube Water Cooling Kit Thermaltake Pacific V-RX 5700 Series Plus GPU Waterblock Thermaltake Water Cooling Pacific Hard Tube Bending Kit 300mm Thermaltake TtMod Sleeved Cables 300mm Thermaltake TT Premium PCIe Extender The crew at #scancomputers worked tirelessly to get these parts out to us, so huge thanks to them. I am blown away by #Seagate not only for providing the blistering fast PCIe 4.0 FireCuda, but the huge 14TB Ironwolf Pro; I wonder if it will be possible to install my entire Steam Library? 😏 There are more parts on the way from the fantastic folk at #Thermaltakeuk and #AMD, I will make sure to post pictures of them when they arrive. As far as the design itself... ...that will also have to wait for another day. Stay safe and take care everyone!
Hey guys. This is something I've been planning to do for nearly two years now, and it's finally coming to a head. As some of you may have seen, I recently put together a custom reservoir to sit in the window of a Thermaltake Core P5. You can find the thread detailing how that all happened here . So after much debate between choosing X299 or X399, I eventually opted for Threadripper. I wanted a build I was sure would continue to be supported for years to come, and I didn't feel that I could get that out of Intel (Plus I didn't want to delid). So here are the parts! I ordered these during one of Ebay's 20% off sales, so most of them were a pretty good deal. The parts are as follows: Threadripper 1950x Asus ROG Zenith Extreme Strix GTX 1080ti Gaming TeamGroup Vulcan ram (64gb 3000mhz) Samsung 250gb Evo M.2 SSD Thermaltake 850w DPS Titanium (Only PSU with theRiing fan and two EPS outlets) Some Riing fans for the radiator And of course, the Core P5. I'll be using some HDD's from my current computer when it's time to migrate to this one. The first thing I did was put everything together and test the system. I decided to shove the 1080ti straight into my current build and pull the R9 290x out of that one so I could enjoy those high refresh rates straight away. We have ignition! Windows was successfully installed! It was time to focus on the more aesthetic side of things. I figured, if I was going to put this much effort into this build, I may as well have a symbol/logo done up to match the PC's name. I contacted a graphic designer located in Queensland called Sam Johnston (He has a business page if anyone's interested. Would recommend). Within a week I had a fully-fledged logo! I'm lucky that at work we have a laser cutter on hand. Here I am testing a few different power levels before etching the window. And here's the real deal. I decided to etch it backwards so that it would retain the gloss from the front side of the window. And not long after. Here it is after a quick cleanup. And finally after a polish. Not long after this, my water cooling equipment arrived from Bitspower. All bar the pump mount, which I unfortunately forgot. Hello extra $35 shipping. I tell you what, I feel that Bitspowerdon't get the recognition they deserve. Look at the quality of these blocks. Opps, forgot to take a photo of these ones with the wrapping off. While the waterblocks were great, I did have an issue with the radiator. I find it unfortunate that Bitspower stopped producing the single-sided version of the 480 radiator, and have opted for a double-sided model only. This produced a problem when mounting it to the P5 as I'm sure you can clearly see here. The Core P5 is flat on the side I need to mount the radiator to. But I had a solution in mind. Little bit of silicone and they were sitting pretty. Just shove em in. And wipe the excess away! Now I do love Bitspower, but one thing that irks me about them is the fact that all their plexi products have a frosted finish. I much prefer how EK does this with their crystal clear blocks. Thankfully, polishing acrylic isn't something that's particularly difficult. Before: And after: Before: And after: Before: And after: This was by far the worst part. I forgot to take photos of the ram blocks, but I did get a few before and after shots of the ram sticks themselves. At this stage, I ordered some cables fromCablemod. I quite like the scheme I came up with. They arrived not long after. Shortly thereafter, my pumps and liquid metal arrived. Naan Bread always looks at me like I've just asked her to hang out the washing.Unfortunately I didn't order enough sleeving. I sleeved up one of the pumps, but had to order more sleeving for the other. I couldn't find anyone selling Alphacord in Australia, so I opted for a knock-off vinyl sleeve from eBay. It was not good. I'll post photos of that later, but it looks like I'll have to order more Alphacord from overseas. Money money Next up was attaching the monoblock to the motherboard. Not a bad idea, Asus. Liquid metal is awfully pretty. And hard to figure out how to apply for someone who's never used it before. I got there eventually. And that's where I'm up to for now! Looks pretty good I reckon. I've got a few more parts on the way. Not much more I can do for now until they arrive.
Hello, my name is DJ Madrid age of 21 and also known as Kryptek PC Casemodz, I am from the Philippines. And also, thanks to Thermaltake my major sponsor for this build project, thank you so much for this oppurtunity, more power! And now, let's go to the build. This project will be named "45Deg" or "45 Degree", the position of the motherboard is something new in our eyes because normally many of the mods today are rotated into 90 degree or 180 degree inverted, so I decided to make a 45 degree rotated motherboard position. I'll be using Thermaltakes water cooling parts, case, power supply and Riing fans. Here is my isometric 3D design using Google sketchup Pro. Hope you'll like it
