As seen on the Watercooled PC Facebook page, modder Ilija Dakic has posted his preliminary plans and intentions for a seriously awesome PC mod project.
As you can see from the image above, he's looking to take AMD's CPU project literally - producing a 'BULLDOZER' build featuring an AMD chip as its core.
He has begun the journey by making these few drawings to illustrate the design concept and idea, following it up with some real life sticky tape-laden examples and then furthering it with specific measurements and analysis.
If you're wondering on how to begin your very own epic PC project, here's just one idea that may help.
Produced by Mod Epic, this project Black Pearl features some handy modding work and is accompanied by a live video showing you basically the whole process from start to finish.
Cooled by EK Blocks Components and based around an Cyborg case by Epic, the video above sees the modder rock out to some Rammstein which seems extremely fitting given the design of this project.
The full specification list is as follows:
CPU: Intel Pentium G3258
VGA: ASUS NVIDIA GTX 780 ref.
RAM: Avexir Core 4MBx2/2400 MHz
PSU: Silverstone 600W SX600-G SFX
SSD: M2 M6E 128GB Plextor
CASE: Cyborg by Epic
CPU Block: EK-Supremacy Nickel
Radiator: EK-CoolStream PE 120
Pump combo: EK DDC X-RES Top 100
FAN: CM Jetflo black 120
Based on an MSI Z97 Gaming 9 and contained within the Fractal Design R4, this fully water cooled, wood-grain PC screams class and I daresay die-hard designers and Apple fanboys wouldn't mind something like this sitting on their all-white desk in an office.
The full specification list is in the extended story.
This SLI-graphics system packs some seriously beautiful watercooling routing with the utmost care being taken in order to make sure every single tube looks like its part of an art feature, helping tie the project together as a whole.
What's different about this build also is the engraved company logos alongside the Antec cutouts, helping make this one of the best modded systems we have seen yet.
This fancy photography shows off what is probably the cutest and also most beautiful water cooling components that I've ever seen. There's something about the dark metal contrasting with the crystal clear shell displaying a cool blue liquid interior that makes this something special.
We can't wait to see what Lukasz comes up with, stay tuned for updates as his build progresses.
Boasting a plethora of sponsors like ASUS Republic of Gamers, CM Storm, Bit-Tech, Cooler Master and EK Water Blocks, this white modded system named Project HEX is set to be a stunner.
Quoted as 85% complete by Alex SN on his Facebook page , this system is yet another French masterpiece. After we've been following the journey of Mathieu Delsuc from Math Military Modding and his amazing real carbon fiber tubing PC build, it's time to give another Frenchman the spotlight.
Packed full with a complete water cooling loop, massive bottom-mounted radiator and stunning smooth LEDs, we can't wait until this build has been brought to completion.

It's almost completed and it sure does look amazing. Math Military Modding has put a few more touches on this real carbon fiber build, using R/C plane carbon fiber rods in place of your general rigid tubing options.
Sponsored by ASUS France, Seasonic, EK Water Blocks and Kingston Technology HyperX, we've covered this build in detail previously, highlighting exactly how special it is.
Well here's another quick update, as you can see the custom-build chassis is all ready to go and almost all of the components have been put into place. The carbon fiber rigid tubing being laid out neatly and professionally and all that's left is to add the video cards, fill up the watercooling and put a few minor touches on the build as a whole.
We can't wait for the final product, stay tuned as we will provide it to you as soon as it's done.
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.
Often completely overlooked and under appreciated, good cable sleeving will most certainly help tie together a great modded project.
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.
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.
