Description

This is my current computer. It is a older generation but it does what I need it to do and it does it well. I use this computer for content creation as well as an everyday workstation for Design, and Gaming.

THE CASE:

This case was from my original workstation back in 2007. It was sitting around and it deserved a new life since it has been with me for a long time through thick and thin. So I decided to go ahead and mod it. Below is the work log:

WATER LOOP:

Okay so the AIO is the Swiftech H240 X-2 I decided the loop would fit the Mod with Copper Pipes and white PrimoChill Revolver Fittings. as well as an extra res for ease of filling. I added a drain port that runs in the basement of the case and out the back with PrimoChill soft tubing and used a compression fitting and fill port to plug the end.

I originally thought this would be a total failure, but it is actually working SUPER WELL! and looks pretty nice.

MOTHERBOARD:

I chose this motherboard because it was one I had my eyes on for a few years now and since my last motherboard was completely destroyed, I decided to change it up a bit. This has many upon many USB hubs and plenty of fan ports as well as has a lot of good reviews. so I thought that it would work just fine.

CPU:

I needed a lot of cores and something that was good at multi-threading. The only thing that worried me was the 3.2GHz, but honestly I haven't noticed much of a difference. I have not OC'd it yet, reason being, I simply am confused at how to do it with SB-E. I have read up on it and I'm still confused. might need a walk-through.

GPU:

I Chose the R7 370 because... well honestly, I got it at a really good deal new and that was pretty much my budget. I WILL upgrade in the future. But for now, this isn't a bad GPU it just takes a bit of fiddling with to get it to get good FPS in DOOM. but it runs BF1, Battlefront and all the indie games I play really well.

As for everything else, it was either in the budget or I already had it.


In the future, I would really like to upgrade to an X99 platform or maybe even the Z270. But who knows, the tech industry is moving fast.

Thank you for checking out my Build/Mod. There will be more Case Mods to come!

Wow! This gives me such inspiration to get off of my you know what and tinker. Exceptional. The copper piping is spot on and anything else would have been incorrect. I have only one critic and it is the hex head bolts. They seam somehow out of place, maybe a different style bolt or something to fit the futuristic wasteland theme you have going there. Just a suggest. You are very talented. This deserves to be featured!

Thank you for the beautiful complement! I really enjoyed this Mod/build. It is based off of a crashed T-47 from Star Wars. Also Thank you for the Critic! The Bolts were the hardest choice for me, because they draw your eyes to them (which draws your eyes to the pipes and res). If/when I go back to progress the case, I think that I will try to find something different. I might try domed tops to look more like rivets rather than bolts and ill rust them out as well. Thank you again!

I am a simple man. I see a build with copper tubing, I press upvote. If I get there before Jipster, I leave a comment. And if I see a rusted-out, crash-themed, STAR WARS build, I bookmark it, and subscribe to their YouTube channel. +10000000

Very well done Sean, and I love the mod. Look forward to more from you!

A fun custom build for sure. Although I would accidentally get snagged on it all the time. Love the battle scarring and paint job. Upgrades in that case would make it one hell of a PC. The innovation here deserves attention.

HAHAHA! Yea I keep it ALL the way in the back of the desk. Yea I hope I can upgrade at some point. I'd really like to start with the gpu.

Yeah, that R7 must be feeling old by now. I know my R9 isn't quite keeping up like it did two years ago.(still functional, and runs cool. But just not top of the line for the big games. It's more of a medium settings GPU these days.) If you want to stick with AMD, keep your eyes out for the new Vega GPUs. They should be pretty awesome if they deliver anywhere near the performance they suggest.

Nice RatRod/Star Wars style (I was just watching Vegas Rat rods). And the copper lines fit with it perfect. I agree with you about the bolts. Good inspiration.

Thank You very much! I was so hesitant to do copper on an AIO, but I'm glad it all worked out! Thank you again!

Wow, that case mod is awesome!

What's really awesome is that is 10 years old, it just needed some love to become something amazing. Really cool!
