  1. Ups guys! I just forgot to mention that i have written an article about my modification in biggest Slovenian magazine called RaÄunalniÅ¡ke novice. Translation for ''non-slovenians'' Modification of a computer is an extremely wide concept among fans of computer enthusiasts . But mine computer is a real argument that computer modification does not only mean installing LED fans, extreme graphic cards, processors and requires much more passion and joy in the work which are the key for us all to achieve our imaginative ideas.The first time I assembled the computer completely alone was when I had 12 years - now I have 17 years, after some time modding became so dear to me that now it's my new favorite hobby. Today, however, if you are like me, journey through computer forums around the world are my daily routine, and the reason for a lot of sleepless nights. It all starts with a little idea, just like that day when I was reading automotive forums stumbled upon a trend called "sticker bombing", the heart of my modification. And from a small idea, then several weeks choosing between a choice of colors. After two months of building my computer, Cranberry CM 690 II, was finnaly finished. With anything but breathtaking components: processor Intel Core i5 4570, motherboard Biostar Hi-Fi Z87X, 16GB RAM, SSD memory Samsung 840 and the LEPA B 800 power supply. Most cooling system components comes from Slovenian company EKWB. The project was started when I took apart my existing computer and "naked body" painted with white. Then from a thin aluminuim I made two covers, one took place as a PSU shroud and the other one has found place hiding optical drives cage. I replaced the video card with Radeon 280X, installed it a full water block, "backplate" was equipped with sticker bomb stickers and graphics processor "overclocked" to 1200MHz. In order to install 3/4 liter reservoir EK-RES X2 , I cut a large piece of steel. EKWB XT 120mm was also painted to a body color. Most of the time I spent on "dressing" serial power cables in white Sleeving, which I also did the first time. A whole series of modifications, however, does not end here either. I made a tile, which proudly holds the name of my project, "CranBerry". It is made of a plexi glass with glued carbon sticker, and ofcourse, name of my project. Even cooling was dressed in the style of a complete modification, so let's say the hose from the tank to the pump flows through the PSU shroud from it in the graphics. So everything has its purpose, like a pretty big MagiCool Slim 360mm radiator with a central task off heat to the surroundings. It is not just a show of muscle or what money can buy, says the fact that I keep most of the components of a pre-existing computer and most of my savings invested in "modification". This was my first project where I showed my skills. But I hope that with time I will show more of my projects, maybe even wrote an article about how my hobby turned into a business.
  2. Hello readers. Last friday and saturday we were having a big informational fair in Slovenia, where my computer was exhibited. This fair was meant mostly for teeangers to help them decide what they want to became or how do they want to start their career. I'm currently studiing as a computer tehnician so it was a no brainer about bringing my computer there The place was really well lightened so I could take some photos while no people were around. There were bunch of people gathering around my computer all the time, and I told them why this computer is so special and how the liquid cooling works. Everybody liked it and I met some new friends. I really enyojed these two days, there some nice girls too
  3. Here are some final touches to my CranBerry build!
  4. I also made a sign with my project name on it. Idea was to glue characters on plexi and then light it up with LEDs, but it was too hard to read them...then I decided to glue them on a carbon sticker.
  5. This pictures shows how I done my first ever sleeving job!
  6. I have also bombed a graphics card backplate
  7. I wanted to have 280x and 250mm reservoir in that case so I decided that cutting is necessary.
  8. FINAL Pic's: Probably it would be a good start to greet everyone reading this post. I am a student from Slovenia. I had to much free time in summer so I decided to mod mine CM 690 II, so I could be proud.I have been planning this for one month, though I'm not 100% how will it developed. Goal is to build something different from builds that u are used to, aka black and red themes. There will be much more colours, but mainly white. And black. Hardware is going to be: i5 4570 Biostar Z87X Hi-Fi 3D 4GB G.skill (1600(CL9) + some sticks on which says 2x8GB Samsung 840 250GB WD Caviar Green 2TB Club 3D 280x RoyalQueen Lepa B800 CM 690 Advanced B&W Yes, nothing tempting but good enough. U agree? I already did some major mods like painted case with snowy white: Installed Motherboard and PSU + removed HDD cage: Then I recycled some very thin aluminum panel and made first PSU shroud, but decided to make better one and shroud for DVD 5.25" bays. Then i got idea how to mount an SSD, with motherboard standoofs. Final look of shrouds, very pleased with results. Its exactly like how I dreamed it would be I guess thats the most important. New GPU, sadly my Alphacool NexXxos 7950/7970 V2 doesn't fit on reference 7970's. Have a colorful day.
