Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Malik Customs “ROG Wall” build. Designed to be shown off at the Poznan Game Arena 2015 Malik Customs created this custom ASUS Republic of gamers themed build. What makes this build very unique is that it is not done in a traditional case, but on a vertical wall mount. Besides matching the ROG theme perfectly Malik Customs also made use of EK Water Blocks components.
I’m sure at some point you had a bad PC setup. Maybe moving into a new place, waiting for a new desk to arrive or you just ran out of room. I can remember my horrible PC setups from when I was living at the dorms in college. If you have ever ventured over to the Shitty Battlestations sub-reddit you will find a lot of horrible PC setups. We will are going to pick 20 each month and feature them as 20 of the Worst PC setups for that month. Here are some of the bad ones from January!
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have MetallicAcid’s “Origami” build. Here is what they had to say about it, “Hello everybody, and welcome to yet another of my modded projects! I would like to introduce you to my project named “Origami” which features the exclusive In Win S-Frame chassis. The name Origami is inspired by the way this single 2m long, 4mm thick aluminium plate has been folded 15 times to give this unique chassis it’s form. There is no floor or roof, and tempered glass panels which really set this chassis aside from most all other PC enclosures on the market today. I felt that I would take on the challenge of modding this chassis to enhance its design in typical MetallicAcid style, complete with brushed aluminium panels, and a full custom water cooled loop with hardline tubing.”
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have imersa’s “Parvum MATE” build. Here is what they had to say about it, “Hi everyone. Time for another project. This is my second filler project before the next BIG thing. Now this is the first time I’ve EVER documented me working on a non-parvum case. That of course makes sense because.. why promote the competition. With that said I had just been itching for the last year to work on another case. As an avid and passionate modder it really sucks seeing another case you like and not being able to build in one.”
CES is a place where many companies show off their latest products. What better way to show off these products than inside of a badass case mod! This year we saw some pretty awesome builds, case mods, and a few scratch builds at the show. Some of the builds we have actually featured in our Case Mod Friday section so it was cool to see them in person! Enjoy our gallery of the Case Mods of CES 2016!
Now that you’ve had a little bit of time with your shiny new gear, opened every box, checked every fitting, I bet you can’t wait to start installing parts! Well hold on for just a minute there cowboy. Before we can start the real fun there are few chores that must be done to prepare those brand new parts for use. Of course you could throw caution to the wind and skip this whole article but I wouldn’t recommend it. As nice and shiny as those parts appear on the outside, due to the manufacturing processes involved the insides are not usually so pristine. So welcome to Water Cooling 101 Episode 4; where we help you get your parts ready for use.
Of all the myriad ways to cool a PC perhaps none is more elegant than the all in one liquid cooler. The AiO traces it’s lineage back to the elite world of PC water cooling where money and time are thrown haphazardly at a project in an attempt to perfect this science and art. Each of these self contained units are an elegant, fully sealed solution using the thermal properties of water to draw heat away from the processor. But of course like all things, not all AiOs are created equal and the past year of 2015 has been no exception. And so as this year draws to a close and we begin to plan excitedly for 2016, join us as we pick out the very Best AiO Coolers of 2015 reviewed here at ThinkComputers.org.
Case mods have been a staple in the PC industry for a very long time. They allow system builders, artists, gamers, and pretty much anyone to really make their PC build their own. Case modding has never been more popular and many companies actually commission modders to create one of a kind builds to show off their new hardware or case. Each week we feature a mod or build that has been completed in the community in our Case Mod Friday section. Going through all of the features of the past year we have picked out a few that really caught our eye! Without further ado here are our picks for the best case mods of 2015! In no particular order of course!
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have Twister’s “Frozen Grey” build. Here is what they had to say about it, “After a little break I decided to begin a new mod with the wonderful Corsair 780T, it is amazing with a nice estetic and enough spacious to host a good mod. So, let’s start with the presentation of this mod and with a big thanks to Corsair, Asus and Drako.it, without them this couldn’t be possible.”
Well we’ve designed our loop, spent hours searching the web comparing parts and twiddling our thumbs nervously before clicking the submit order button. And why shouldn’t you be nervous? You just added enough gear to your cart to buy a crappy car! But it’s done, funds have been exchanged, time has slowly and painfully ticked by, and the tracking number has been checked hundreds of times (does the refresh button even work anymore?). Finally the status is green, the package has been delivered, our parts have arrived from Aquatuning.us, Phanteks, and ThermalTake! What did we get you ask? Follow along as we unbox and check out our glorious shiny new water cooling gear. Welcome to Water Cooling 101: Episode 3!
