    Hi!

    We are returning with our next mod. For today, we show you some of the Corsair goodies we will
    use and transform to make our new mod, called "Ancient Corsair". Without further ado, here are
    some pictures of the hardwares we going to use in our mod:

    Corsair fans along with an AX 860i PSU and H115i cooling:

    In terms of storage we'll work with the Corsair Neutron XT 480:
    [​IMG]

    For memory, we have 4x4GB of 3200MHz Dominator memory with some colorful extras:

    For the case, we have a really spaceous, kind of "modder's dream" case, the Corsair 900D:

    The other main components you can't see here will be coming soon!
    The final concept and layout is being finalized soon.

    Regards, BaluC & Soccer

    The summer and the heat is here...
    The work is in progress (whit a LOT complicating factor)...

    You have seen the design...
    And now comes the modding part. Building the Shapes Part 1

    ...Measuring, cutting, sanding, fixing, filling, painting... painting a little more to the desired "anchient" effect :)

    :jawdrop: ok! Sorry! You are right! :eeek:
    Havent posted the "design" :duh:

    This should have been added sooner. :doh:

    We'd like to share the concept, it will most likely be formed along the way, but the main concept is a long time relic, crashed to earth ancient pirate ship, a Corsair.
    Some additions and new ideas will be added alongside the way to the RGB lighting features, but the main concept will remain the same.

    The MSI X99A motherboard and VGA is on the way, as soon as we get our hands on them we will post them.

    Wow! That is stunning. The amount of detail and cutting work is amazing and the paint job looks spot on. Certainly has some presence when you see a photograph of the whole case. Great job.

    The inside gets some details + RGB lights to change "mood" as I want :D
    The MSI Mobo has a build in LED controller, and I have a Corsair Commander Mini to.

    Some detail work, and lot Corsair RGB led strips.
    As you can see on the first render pictures, RED was the original plan, but it turned out great. Can be set to any mood / game :D
