Hello! My name is Johan Nyman, Im 21 years old and living in Sweden. I recently finished two mods, CURV3D and F4DE, one scratchbuild and one casemod. So now Im going to work on a older scratchbuild that I want to upgrade and also fix the small mistakes I did before. And I want to share this build at this forum! This time I will also add a custom watercooling loop and other goodies. Well lets start by some pictures of the parts of the case that I have to work with right now. It consists of the parts, the frontpanel, the sides and the backpanel. All together it creates a nice shaped case. As you see the acrylic is kind of rough, many scratches. So I will start working on that. The acrylic part didnt really fit perfect either as seen on this picture: So I measured out and cut 4-5mm so it fits better! I will install the motherboard on the right side of the acrylic, and because I dont want to show the backside of the motherboard through the acrylic I gave it some black paint! Im currently planning on what kind of hardware and other stuff I will use in this project. The next thing I will do is to cut out a hole in the backpanel for the powersupply and start working on a shroud over the bottom part of the case. Thank you for checking in! Please leave a comment. With king regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
moddingnewbie posted a topic in Cases, Power Supplies and ModdingHi, Am a newbie to modding in general (and hope that this question has been posted in the correct forum sub-category) and would like to ask whether anyone knows technical specifications and pinout details for the following please? This was attached to a DDR2 Module (possibly via a heat-spreader - cannot recall for certain) however whether this was fitted at the factory I'm not sure (at a guess it wasn't). Apologies for the quality of the photo. No idea whether this is programmable or whether the LEDs illuminate randomly. Thank you for any help.
The purpose: Because once you start modifying PCs you need another shot time and time again I have decided to build something for myself this time. I have made previous builds for others. One modified but still held back due to money concerns. This time it is for me and no cutting corners. I did want it to serve a purpose. For this build I am completely removing two purposes of my regular family PC. Which is gaming and folding. Especially folding will be the big purpose. Most of the time it will be used for folding 24/7. The build title is an adaptation of a line one of my sponsors uses. KFA2 uses "Play hard, game harder", for this project I have adapted it to "Game hard, Fold harder". Which basically means this build can be used for heavy high resolution high FPS gaming, but for a larger portion of the day it will be used to aid (medical) research through folding using software of [email protected] and B.O.I.N.C. The high end hardware will serve both purposes very well. At a later point I will explain more what folding is all about for those that are not completely up-to-date with the term folding. I hope to promote the cause that is folding to a large audience with this buildlog. The plan: The plan is to completely modify a Silverstone TJ07. The theme will be completely black with orange accents. The shape that will be used a lot is that of the hexagon. About every panel of the case will see some sort of modifying. But it won't be a screaming build. It will be tastefull and have a clean look. The build will be using a i7-3770k (at first at least), overclocked to what the custom watercooling loop can handle. So max overclock for a 24/7 working system. It will feature the famous Samsung low voltage overclocking ram (also OC'd to the max) and two or three Nvidia GTX670 cards again under water and max overclocked. All wiring will see full custom sleeving. There will be multiple windows (with engravings). The cooling hoses that will be in sight are going to be made of acryl / plexi tubing. That is if it won't hamper the cooling performance too much. I don't want to spoil everything yet since that takes away the fun for me. I will update the thread in a chronological way. I want to keep some stuff a secret to hopefully surprise a few members. Execution: I have started the build a few weeks / months back. I didn't want to start a buildlog untill I could keep the thread flowing for a while with updates. I am not done with this build/mod yet. It will take a good amount of weeks to finish it. Sadly I am not a millionaire to buy everything day 1 . First things first. The cse itself. I bought it used (because it was cheap and because I was going to modify it anyway). So here are a few pictures of her. Look at what the previous owner did. The complete front full of ugly stickers, a big touchscreen fancontroller and knobs. YUCK. An additional top fan for who knows what reason. Holes in the top mesh and glue to fix it :facepalm: he case was even missing one of it's casefeet. How can you lose one of those? Next update: cleaning this baby up. Looking at the damage done and fixing her up.
