Thermaltake Australia flies down modder for watercooling series

Due to observation through social media, we've observed that Thermaltake Australia has flown down Stuart Tonks from Queensland to their Australian office in Victoria, Australia in order to produce a watercooling web series and PC build.

We've covered a few of Tonks' builds before, including this monster Coolermaster HAF Stacker and a previous Thermaltake Core X9 build and he has also been selected by Thermaltake to represent Australia in their modding competition.

 

Looking into their media manager Jonathan Newton's Instagram, a post was made of an energy drink with the caption "my morning companion. Picking up a special guest for #thermaltake from Melbourne airport to help film a #webseries about #liquidcooling for PC's. Stay tuned people :) #pcmods #pcmodding #lcs."

Based around an MSI Gaming 7 motherboard and with two MSI GTX 780ti video cards ensuring no game is left un-maxed, this case is tied together with a full custom watercooling setup.

 

As the summary states: "watercool ALL the things!" Even the mechanical storage drives aren't safe, explained by lmfaceroll as implemented "due to there being a tonne of space in a desk/cabinet. It fills out the space a lot more."

These Corsair K65 RGB keyboard replacement keycaps are amazing

Posted on YouTube by Water_Cool_Fool you can get your very own set of Corsair K65 RGB keycaps from Amazon but they're currently listed as out of stock.

 

 

This video helps show off the might of what is current keyboard modding. The addition of several peripheral companies making further steps into RGB development has certainly seen focus stray away from 256 million membrane keyboards with copious macros and more so towards keyboards with extended lighting options and keycap customization - much like a chassis!

 

There's nothing left to say but, enjoy.
