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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
"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.
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.
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.
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".
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.
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.
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.
