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.

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.

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.

Real cabon fibre in a PC build - we're not joking

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.

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.

 

bumblebee-hardware-extremes-black-yellow-project_087

 

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.

 

lets-take-minute-appreciate-cable-re-sleeving_059

 

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.
