Bumblebee is that you? Hardware Extreme's black and yellow project

Making Wiz Khalifa proud, this black and yellow build spotted on the EK Water Blocks Facebook page is jam-packed with ASRock, Intel and EK Water Blocks components.

Finally a build that isn't featuring rigid tubing, this mod project has interestingly placed the Kingston HyperX SSD Na'Vi Edition directly onto the power supply likely due to space constrictions.

 

Alongside providing yellow died liquid for aesthetics, even the RAM has been properly color coordinated alongside brilliantly sleeved cables. This fully water cooled system only features one video card this time, but it's still going to be enough for general duties.

Let's take a minute to appreciate cable re-sleeving

Often completely overlooked and under appreciated, good cable sleeving will most certainly help tie together a great modded project.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43771_059_lets-take-minute-appreciate-cable-re-sleeving.jpg

 

We've come to appreciate that Mathieu Delsuc from Math Military Modding is a master in his field and the photo's you will see in this article are previous sleeving projects that he has undertaken as part of the Desert Storm and 760T MARPAT Edition mod projects.

 

Whilst getting ready to sleeve his amazing real carbon fiber project, some research into the past is being made and shared on his Facebook page.

 

Modular power supplies often come with straight-black cabling which makes sense from a mass-production sense as it's easy to produce and will suit a myriad of builds. However what if you're looking for the total package? That's when cable sleeving and combs come into play. The cable combs help everything stay neat, while the newly colored sleeving helps you dial in the complete color scheme that you are trying to achieve.

I'm feeling blue - the 780T BLUE TRIM mod project

Featured on Ocaholic as their rig of the day, this 780T BLUE TRIM build would make Eiffel 65 proud.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43723_041_feeling-blue-780t-trim-mod-project.jpg

 

Packed full of the latest tech including an Intel i7 4790K, a mix of EK Water Block and Bitspower cooling and an EVGA GTX980 all tied together by an ASROCK Z97 PRO 4 in a Corsair Graphite 780T case with blue trim - this beautiful blue and black project is another addition to the plethora of simple projects we have been sharing.

 

Although it doesn't feature an SLI-setup like most high-end projects we've seen, this system would be a great addition to any hardcore gamer arsenal.

Math Military Modding's real carbon fibre rigid rubing, an update

Remember when we teased that real carbon fiber custom PC project by Math Military Modding? It's now one step closer to completion and we wouldn't be more excited.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43701_030_math-military-moddings-real-carbon-fibre-rigid-rubing-update.jpg

 

We've recently shared Mathieu's take on the MSI GTX970 Krait Edition, but here's an update on the project at hand. Featuring a Seasonic PSU, Kingston HyperX RAM and SSD, EK WaterBlocks cooling components and some beautiful ASUS hardware, his updated project Facebook album has a plethora of images on display, however we've condensed the information down here for you.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43701_031_math-military-moddings-real-carbon-fibre-rigid-rubing-update.jpg

 

This ASUS Strix build sets out to use real carbon fiber as the rigid tubing for the watercooling loop, which makes sense given Mathieu's modding name - Math Military Modding.

The In Win S-Frame chassis is amazing - check this 95% finished mod

We've covered a few different In Win S-Frame chassis builds in the past, including this 'computer of the future' and this unfinished painted project.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43671_010_win-frame-chassis-amazing-check-95-finished-mod.jpg

 

They've all got one main thing in common - they look amazing. Sure it's probably not the best case to stick in an office or take to LAN parties, but the unique design, sleek curves and metal styling makes for a brilliant moddable canvas.

 

This project is reportedly 95% finished, with cable management, RAM additions and a water pump reveal to be completed (blurred due to NDA's) - it still looks better than any PC I've ever owned.

 

Built by Mathieu Heredia aka Sassanou Watermod, this project once again shows off the futuristic-looking capabilities of this versatile case. Heredia has added two video cards into SLI and painted the whole project in this contrasting color scheme complete with red highlights.

Simplemodz takes it back to basics with this WIP Green Molecule build

Set to be stuffed full of high-tech components including GTX 970's in SLI and an Intel 3770K slotted into an ASUS Maximus V Gene - this work in progress build by Simplemodz sets out to be a little different from the rest.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43668_05_simplemodz-takes-back-basics-wip-green-molecule-build.jpg

 

This Fractal Design R2 Mini has been custom-painted and cut up, displaying the molecules proudly through a green and white color scheme.

 

There's also a few display windows cut on the reverse side in order to display the HDD and Corsair SSD alongside Bitspower liquid cooling products currently being installed to help keep the system at low temperatures.

 

Stay tuned for more updates as this build progresses.

This LED packed S-Frame is Vegas summed up in a PC chassis

"What is this a f****n Las Vegas?" This was the first comment that caught my eye when this amazing InWin S-Frame build was shared in the Watercooled PC Facebook group.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43596_067_vegas-summed-up-pc-chassis-lights-galore.jpg

 

Designed and built by Wae Waefamily, this stunning modding project ensures that you'll never forget what companies and models of components are located within your prize and joy. A great option for sponsored builds, this project unfortunately comes with extremely limited information.

 

Complete with Kingston HyperX RAM, Inno3D GTX980's in SLI, an ASUS motherboard and a bunch of Samsung 950 PRO SSD's - you can be sure that this fully water cooled build will make easy work of any games you might want to play right now.

Designing your PC mod project from scratch - how's it done?

We've posted plenty of scratch-built PC projects over the past few weeks here at TweakTown, including the recently shared ZOTAC love heart chassis.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43575_042_designing-pc-mod-project-scratch-done.jpg

 

But where exactly do you start? You can't start cutting, 3D printing or shaping until you've got some solid plans in place - after all, it's a solid plan that will ensure you produce a solid result. Tri-MAX has just released some information on Facebook, showing exactly how top-notch modders go about planning their projects.

 

These renders show you the complete custom-case design, highlighting the planned water cooling loop setup - questioning fans about the loop setup and if it's optimal. As you can see by the pictures, this build is once again powered by Bitspower components, as proudly displayed on the top of the case in capital letters - "100% BITSPOWER".

Be my gamer valentine with this ZOTAC love heart build

Forgot to get that special someone a valentines day present? Never fear - ZOTAC is here! This scratch-built system has been shown off by its Portuguese creator ShuperLuu as a present for his girlfriend back in 2013.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43549_032_gamer-valentine-zotac-love-heart-build.jpg

 

Based around ZOTAC's ZBOX Nano XS AD11 Plus, this system had to contain a few specific points in the modders eyes - It had to be simple, look great to his girlfriend, be able to hold the components vertically and have advanced cooling options.

 

The end product is this white and red acrylic multilayer system - with the aforementioned ZOTAC heart beating within.

 

Good idea or not? Let us know what you think in the comments below.

Math Military Modding supercharges his own MSI GTX970 KRAIT Edition

If MSI's GTX970 KRAIT edition didn't already look awesome enough, Math Military Modding has given it an all-white makeover.

 

TweakTown image news/4/3/43522_018_math-military-modding-supercharges-msi-gtx970-krait-edition.jpg

 

This graphics addition would certainly look great on our previously covered sticker-bombed black, white and grey project by Corsaronero333.

 

It's possible that this video card will be placed within Math's new carbon fiber project, however there's no being sure just yet. We will certainly cover the build as it progresses to completion.
