Code Name: Clear Cut. Core v21 Mod

Recommended Posts

Hey There, Im fairly new to the Thermaltake forums, but I just picked up a core v21 mATX chassis and wish to share my project. 

 

I have done one other build in a core x71 case, But didnt do a whole lot to it as in modding. Ill post a link to the thread I posted here in the build section.

 

http://community.thermaltake.com/index.php?/topic/49519-thermaltake-core-x71-custom-watercooled-build/

 

Now inspiration for this build is a clear cube mixed with a snow globe, ya dont ask me how I came up with that lol. But this case is perfect for a cube build.

Cooling: This will be a custom loop using copper nickle plated 12mm od tubing. Still shopping for fittings and gpu block. I have a pretty cool barrow block in the mail. As for the rad I have a 240 mm Darkside xflow rad debating on whether to add another. Fans will be using basic 7 fin Rosewill fans that I will be customizing to suit the build. Oh almost forgot I have the cutest lil alphacool pump.

Thanks for checking out the early stages of the build hope you check back for more of Code Name: Clear Cut!!

 

Special shout out to JP modified for his amazing builds and advise. I have recently been lucky enough to bend his ear on my recent project,  and he also has not hesitated to answer any questions I have about PC Modding.  

 

Cheers

So I really love this tubing and think it will accent the gpu and angle bar going into the build perfect. Have a bunch from my last project Code named: Grey Saber

THought I would post a couple pics of Grey saber. The pump inn this is actually a Thermaltake p500.

Now this front panel I made in memory of my late grandfather. The lil plaque thing is My grandfathers signature from a piece of art he left me.

well had to do emergency pump surgery/switch and put a d5 in to replace that lil alphacool pump. Didnt originally design the loop for a D5 so had to do some quick thinking but here is the test loop all closed up. Also want to give a huge shout out to a real great friend that sees potential in my work and has been kind enough to take me under his wing and teach me the ways of this great skill and art we call PC modding. Jesse of JPModified I owe you a debt I dont think I can ever repay. You are truly a huge inspiration to an aspiring modder like myself and I am so honored to have you as a teacher/mentor. With you and now a new relationship with Thermaltake there are no boundaries anymore and success lies in my hands and my hands only to take and run with. I truly hope I live up to the expectations you have for me. I have a passion for this that I havent had for anything in years and to get support from a world class modder like Jesse and a great company like Thermaltake is really a huge confidence booster. 

 

But enough of the sappy stuff lets get to the pc #### eh?
