FlowMods Posted February 2, 2016 Report Share Posted February 2, 2016 Hi guys! I am Filippo and I am a 20 years old italian modder! Last year I finished a mod with Cooler Master Italy, called Project Alpha, which had a lot of success! Then I had the luck to be invited to participate in a big project for Nanoxia, which invited me to Germany to build a desk pc for their booth at Computex in June 2015! I am going to introduce this new mod sponsored by ThermalTake that I thank you immensely for the support! The Mod, in white & black theme, is based on a Core X9 Snow Edition to which I decided to remove the original front and midplate and to replace them with two pieces of acrylic completely designed by me and made with laser cutting and CNC milling machine! The project includes two liquid cooling loop which will respectively cool the CPU and 2 GTX 970 strix! Each loop has a D5 pump and a 480mm radiator connected by rigid pipes while under the midplate I assembled systems with flexible tubes to facilitate the assembly operations. The threads for fittings mounted on midplate were hand made, and the work was not so easy. The hard part was being able to have a tip that does not split open the plexiglass out of the hole, I solved that problem by bringing the drill bit to changr the cut angle to the company I'm referring to the works in acrylic! All cables are sleeved by me, it wasn't easy since it's the first time i made a full sleeved cable set, but sleeves from Icemodz are amazing, and the will be cool But let me say the components of this mod, which I list below: HW: Asus Maximus VII Ranger i5 4670k 2x Asus GTX 970 Strix Thermaltake Thoughpower Grand Platinum 1200w HDD: 1TB Barracuda Ram: 4x4 DDR3 1600 Avexir Core Red Led SSD: 1x Samsung 850 EVO 256GB Loops: 2x pumps D5 Thermaltake (Pacific P1 black) 2x trays cylindrical Thermaltake (Pacific T22) 2x 480mm radiators Thermaltake (Pacific RL480) WB 2x GPU Asus Strix 970 Thermaltake 1x WB CPU Thermaltake Pacific W1 8x Fans Thermaltake Riing White LED Several fittings Thermaltake Chrome Tubes 16/12 PETG ThermalTake DP Ultra liquid Aquacomputer Aquaero 5 LT Power Adjust 3 Ultra by Aquacomputer 2 Temperature sensor to monitor the loops temperatures. I take this opportunity to thank ThermalTake and especially Andy, who supplied me with such a large number of components to build this mod to re-enter in the world of modding after a stop of some months. I also thank Mundi from Icemodz.com who provided me all the material needed to create my sleeved cables! I leave you to the photos of the progress!
