Hey Guys, here we are with our best mod yet. Code named "Scorpio" (based off our company naming convention, not related to the sigil)
This mod is brought to you by
Much love and thanks to my sponsors, without them, this mod wouldn't exist.
Were starting off with what is already a nice case the Chaser MK-I, really well built with a unique design. I like it. My only complaint is I wish it had a hot-swap backplane, which I think we will be putting in.
and mildly destroyed...
Were going to chop it up and spit out something we hope to be fantastic. Here is a very rough draft just to give you an idea where we are going with this.
Were making the entire left side a Reservoir for the Liquid Cooling. With a single radiator (to be determined later) extending out of the middle.
Were adding a large base to the case for stability as the left door will raise straight up vertically. You'll see that later. Waiting for the slides to come in.
You can see our opinions on the hardware we're putting in it to far at our website. www.deviceunknown.com
I started by adding hinges to the left door, due to it's weight in the future of the reservoir.
With the hinges on, it's ready to be cut out and a shroud built to extend a few inches to accommodate the home built reservoir and radiator/fans. That will come later.
Instead after the hinges i moved on to the right door and cut it out to be replaced by plexi in this shape.
From there I will be making the extension to house a large fan and the CD-Rom mounted vertically, as seen in the draft. Once done the entire case will be painted White, with light blue highlights through out.
As far as the hardware, were not sure yet. Were working on a tri Crossfire or SLI setup with the best processor to be able to drive it. and obviously, full watercooling. We'll see how it goes.
Right now we have Thermaltake's 1500 Watt Beast powering it.
This thing is awesome. Read my impressions at our website.
And check these beauties out.
Kingston provided us with 16 Gigs of this extreme HyperX ram.
Also Kingston sent us TWO 120 Gig gorgeous SSD's
These are the only drives that I have seen that are not just beautiful but FASTER than the listed speed, I could not have asked from any better anywhere.
OCZ sent me their Vertex 3 60 Gig SSD which I want to use in the top of the case in The chaser's build in hot swappable Hard drive bay.
Something like this, but obviously smaller. The chaser's drive bay will hold all sizes of hard drives!
That's all for now guys, but were on this full time so be ready for more updates soon.
Again, thank you to Thermaltake, Kingston and OCZ. You guys are so great to work with and you honestly do have great products.
