    Hi Modding Fans!

    We are BaluC & Soccer. We love making custom PC's and hardcore modding for more than a decade.
    As a team of Black-Mod we made a very diverse selection of MODs in the past five years.
    Our newest challenge is a theme that defined comics and cinema:

    BATMAN v SUPERMAN

    In the following weeks we will bring you a project in collaboration with our awesome sponsors:

    [​IMG]


    MSI, Kingston and NZXT. Special thanks to Warner Bros. for authorizing this project!


    [​IMG]

    We have a very short time to deliver, as we both do our full time jobs daily as well, but this is a challenge we face with real enthusiasm!
    Our part of the epic duo: The Man of Steel.
    From modding aspect Superman is a great theme, but more challenging than Batman, with all of the Batman toys, PC/Console games, gadgets and props on the market.
    We can't be more excited to see them in action, until then, we will bring you this SUPER Gaming mod!



    The parts list:
    • CPU: Intel i5 6600K ES
    • MoBo: MSI Z170A Gaming M5
    • VGA: MSI GTX 960 Gaming 4G
    • CPU Cooler: Corsair H100i
    • RAM: HyperX Savage 16GB Kit (4x4GB DDR 2133MHZ)
    • SSD: HyperX Savage SSD 120GB
    • PSU: Enermax Platimax 1350W
    • Case: NZXT S340 Black

    The concept so far:

    Hi Guys!

    We started the modding, let's see what we got:

    One of the main structural components is NZXT's S340

    Even without modding it, we can recommend this case. It's a pleasure to build into it.

    As seen on the main concept, we started to build the main pillar:

    Soccer adjusts the "S" insignia, from here we can see about how big the build will be:

    The S340 in it's final form for the last time:

    Aaaaaaand:

    We are progressing with the modding:

    The base is now ready and the PSU, motherboard and back panel occupied it's place.
    As you can see the PSU will occupy the spine of the build, while the motherboard and the VGA will have a rather usual placing:

    We'll going for the very well known red/blue colors using carbon texture.
    As you can see the material we used is not Kryptonite, it's Karbonyte! Haha get it? Oh well.. :p

    The carbon textured motherboard and I/O tray is now installed on the top base of the build and
    we also made very good progress on polishing other surfaces to advance in the build.

    Soon We'll show more in the next post.

    See you!

    Hi!

    We are advancing with the build, more and more little pieces are adjusted and polished before we can progress towards more and more exciting parts! :D

    The "S" insignia and the back panel is now fixed, by the alignment you can see about how the mod will enclose the components in it.

    Although it seems a bit raw now, sometimes soon we can show you the surfaces and details we are working on right now. :)

    Hi!

    In today's post we got most of the structure together. The really detailed work comes from here onward, as the little details, most of the textures and some vital elements has to be applied, but as you can see, the structure is up and more and more stable:

    Soon we will show you more and more surfaces getting textures and the tasty gaming hardware occupying it's rightful place. :D

    See you soon!

    HI!

    We got another update for the build. In tonight's episode we apply lots of textures and prepare
    to finish the mod. We got lots of things to finish, and the finish line is near.

    Final update

    Hi!

    We are closing in to the finish line. The textures are on and all the hardwares
    are in the case connected.

    For the base of the build we came up with a concrete look. For applying the materials
    we had to be really careful because if we stain the carbon wrapping it could have been tricky to remove.

    For the lower base"s decal one of us had to impersonate Superman. :D

    As we aim for the design to resemble the Man of Steel's outfit, we fitted it with a cape, and now
    there are really minor things left to finish.


    Soon we can show you the completed build!

    We are finished!

    Below you can see our completed work. Lots of working hours later (completed in one month!) we are happy to see our build completed. It was a really good challenge and we hope
    that in the future we'll have challenges like this!

    A big Thank You for our sponsors for the great gear they provided, and for WB for this theme!

    Regards,

    BaluC & Soccer
