  1. The past few years I have completed one full tower (Corsair 800D) and three super tower (two Corsair 900D and one CaseLabs STH-10) builds. These builds have won their fair share of case modding contests at Dreamhack Austin, QuakeCon and most recently the Gigabyte Mod2Win event. Although these full size cases are excellent for building extreme rigs, they are difficult to move to the various LANs that I attend (Dreamhack Austin and QuakeCon). Their sheer size and weight are prohibitive for transporting easily. My latest build in a Corsair 900D case weighed in at just over 80 pounds! Many people have also commented that case modding is too expensive and requires too many specialized tools to fabricate the mods. Although some of the more extreme builds do utilize advanced tools (i.e. laser cutters, CNC machines, etc), it is possible to pull off a successful case mod with minimal tools. This build will be completed with normal hand tools, with the exception of a dremel for minor cutting. After carefully contemplating various designs, I have settled on the PC Master Race (PCMR) theme. The yellow, white and black theme goes perfectly with the Corsair color scheme of yellow and black. I have also decided to use a mid-tower case since it would be easier and lighter to transport. Instead of a full watercooled build consisting of reservoirs, pumps, radiators, fittings and tubing, I wanted to try an All-In-One (AIO) unit due to the simplicity in installation and lower overall cost. Corsair was gracious enough to sponsor me again for this new build and I look forward to highlighting their new Crystal 570X case and showcase a lot of their parts. Now let's get started with the components... Main Components: CSE: Corsair Crystal Series 570X RGB ATX Mid-Tower MBD: ASUS ROG Maximus IX Hero Z270 CPU: Intel i7-7700K Kaby Lake AIO: Corsair Hydro Series H100i Extreme Performance MEM: 32GB Corsair Vengeance RGB DDR4 3000MHz (4x8GB) GPU: EVGA GeForce GTX 1080 Ti SC2 PSU: Corsair HX850i Platinum Modular SSD: 2 x 480GB Corsair Force MP500 M.2 SSD: 2 x 480GB Corsair Neutron XT SATA 3 HDD: 2TB Western Digital Black FAN: 6 x Corsair HD120 RGB LED High Performance 120mm PWM RGB: Corsair Lighting Node PRO Peripherals: MON: ASUS ROG PG279Q 27" 165Hz IPS KBD: Corsair K95 RGB Platinum Mechanical - Cherry MX Speed MSE: Corsair M65 PRO RGB FPS MPD: Corsair MM800 RGB POLARIS I will keep this build log updated as the assembly commences and it starts to take shape.

  3. I have built a few of these desks. And each time I have upgraded and learned from mistakes. This something I love doing. I love computers and I love wood working. I use to build houses and desks so I have learned a few things I started out with 2 sheets of MDF board. First, screwed top and mid section together to make sure the hole was the same size Time to build the sides, backs, and fronts. A digital picture frame was going to show desk name but decided not to install that there. I lost many pictures due to HDD crashing. But built the box connected to top piece. Glue the inner trim down. The glass will sit on that Made a mount for Picture frame Project was put on hold for a little while. Cut 4 1/4 inch holes for 120mm fans. That tan thing was a support in a kids play table i found. cut it up to fit a 12 inch neon behind Mounted the box/top to the bottom of the desk and realized what I did wrong So I did what I could to make it work Now it starting to look like a desk Time for some paint I bought the wrong trim but I made it work. I think it came out great Custom switch panel Again, I have lost many pictures but here it is with hardware inside. Doesn't look too bad. Im sorry again for the lack of pictures. here is the desk up and running and there is more to come. Modded a sealed loop to cool it and got some new hardware. I have a few pictures of the desk as it sits right now. Time for some upgrading that was long overdue. Carbon Fiber vinyl the entire inside box. New mother board tray covered Got my Custom vinyls made just for this desk And this monster still is not finished. But for now She looks good. New build coming soon. Thank you looking
  4. hello guys, i'm interested in buying the Storm Trooper for my First OverPowerd Gaming system that i want to buy in april 2015. and i want to put a Corsair Hydro H110 liquid CPU cooling kit in the mix. now is my question: Does It Fit on the ceiling of the case? the Hydro H110 has a 280mm radiator with 2x 140mm fans(dont ask about the with, i don't know that xD i'll get to that after i post this) i plan to use a ASUS MAXIMUS VII HERO motherboard. with 2-way CFX sapphire R9 290X and 2 sticks of 8gb Corsair vengeance Pro 1866 memory i can buy the H100i, but i don't know how much that will limit my i7 4790k overclocking potential maybe if its a no-go you might be able to suggest a CPU heatsink thats powerfull enough to cool a overclocked i7 4790k? thanks for reading -Tim
