    Update !

    This i think you guys will like.This is an old piece of metal that most people would just walk over or throw in the trash.But to me its a beautiful thing and i will show you why.


    Here is that beautiful piece of Metal i was talking about!


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I looked everywhere for a nice looking holder to hold 2 10 inch EK-Multioption X2 Advanced reservoirs one in front of the other.All i could find was side by side mount and none that really looked all that great in my opinion so it was off to my buddies house to play with the Bridgeport and made my own. This isn't completely polished yet or finished ,and i wont do that till i am closer to the end of the build so i don't scratch it up after spending hours wet sanding and buffing it. It looks really good just as it is now i did a little sanding and could be used just as it is but i want it to match the Nickel in the rest of the Build.

    Hope you enjoy it this just shows what you can do with an old piece of scrap metal.

    "UPDATE"

    Really had trouble posting this update do to confusing people or people getting the wrong idea. Please use the only as a Reference shot only.I am only showing the reservoir mounting and pump mounting in this picture.Everything is just sitting in place.The 5.25 bays are going to be totally reworked still. The reservoirs are just stiffing there with a Bungie holding them balanced for measurements.The inside of the Case will be painted and don't to match the final theme and tons tons more.Also i had to remove the Fans for this shot do to NDA i am under on them and please don't ask anything about them because i cannot answer.

    I am just posting this to let you guys see this build goes together and apart roughly every day to do more work to the case and is far far from completed. Hope you enjoy the pictures.And take them for what they are Just a Reference point of the build:

    Once i receive the PSU for the build it will start really coming together.Allot of measurements are needed from the PSU and whats being done to it before i go can really get moving on the project.

    Here the Reference only Shots are: (So you guys can see Progress has been being Made:

    And in case you missed it before .The home made Reservoir brackets . Also not complete, might do a design patter on them and still need to polish them to match the Nickel.

    Before:

    After:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Also the 2 EK-DCP 4.0 (12V DC Pump's) which are 800L / hour are mounted in this cage hard lined right to the Reservoirs. But like i said still tons of work to do with the Cages,They will look nothing like they do now and will have great airflow through them also when finished.

    As usual i forgot to take a Photo after i cut it and Put the pumps in but i will edit this post when i have them back out again soon or will add it to a new update since so much is going to be done to the 5.25 trays anyway.But i did mark out where i cut it so far to fit the 2 pumps.


    [​IMG]


    And also i would like to Thank EK for Sponsoring the Pumps,Brackets and basically both the dual loop setups for this build.Along with some swag also like cup holder full sleeve shirt and some other great stuff. Great company and they also have allot into this build.

    Here are a Link to the Pumps and the brackets Plus the Specs of the Pumps:Also a shot of me Proudly Sporting the shirt they gave me. Even though i am way overtired in the picture and look like hell.I will post it.

    UPDATE!

    Ok, I have been holding off on this update for a while now because this Company and the owner does so much for me. The sponsorship i have with them is a bit different then a regular sponsorship. I actually belong to a team of a few Modder's that they sponsor.I also got on their team i guess you would say before this build came about.

    [​IMG]

    I cant even begin to explain what they have done for me and mainly the owner himself between moral support help with projects and basically any help i need .Not to mention support when my father in law passed away last week.All i can say is one hell of a company and one hell of a guy personally.


    Ok to start with,They sponsored me a bunch of tubing for for my current builds and any other builds just to make sure i have different colors i may need.So this is what they sent and i Thank them for having me on their team and just for everything.


    Here are some of the things they Helped me with:

    Help with Covering the Sponsored Thread Fee's

    Tubing

    [​IMG]


    Also they helped me make this which is my new update


    I sent them this which was the only way i knew how to draw something up:

    [​IMG]

    [B ]And as you can see he taught me the correct way to draw it up:[/B]

    [​IMG]

    Also they Supplied the Materials which is a Black Acrylic that matches the case perfect. And did the Laser Cutting for me.I had them do it to a shape bigger then i needed so i could actually finish making it from my house but having them Laser cut the Louvers makes it so much smoother and even then i could ever do by hand, since they all have to be the same size exact to fit together. Not sure yet if i am just going to have them stay open or actually get into making them open in close right now since there is so much to do still.


    Here is what the Louvers sorta Look Like. This is in very Raw state and i need to make the hinges and cut it to fit.Right now i just have some fittings holding them up a little so you can get the idea.I love how it came out and was exactly the look i was going for.

    Hope you guys Like it, because i really do.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Keep in mind this is just sitting there on compression fittings and not Lined up or cut at all . Also it has a protective blue layer over it.I really think this is going to help make this build look incredible.


    Take care Guys and Thanks for watching

    MybadOmen


    And More Updates Shortly!

    Should be More updates Really soon.I had to tear the whole build down to make a new top to fit the EK XTC420 Rad that don't fit which i knew in the beginning.

    So as of right now i am busting my butt with major lack of sleep again getting the louvers to work or even mounted with the tiny bit of space i have do to having 6 140 fans on top.

    Will be back in a day or 2 with more updates but the PSU NZXT Hale90 1000w which Is being Sponsored also by NZXT. is Back ordered till April 3rd i hope.The PSU is holding me uo from finishing the back plate and Mounting all the hardware so one i get the PSU here and modded i can get really moving on this build.The other setback is the Fans i have are currently under NDA so to take a Photo for an update i need to remove all the fans or cover them till i am notified the NDA is lifted some time in April.

    Just want to let anyone following the thread there is definitely no slacking going on and i have had barely any sleep in days.Its just hard showing updates yet with the situation i am in.So most updates will come all at one.



    During the Break i would show you guys some of my older work.Remember though i have been working my way up to get to where i am now so they builds have been getting better this last year.


    Allot of you may already know of "Venom" also posted on Bit - tech

    Here's Requiem Revamp that was built for my Father in Law that passed away Last week that i now have back to Mod it into a memorial PC dedicated to him:


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here is my "Red October" Build was a 1090T running 4 GHz 24/7 6 cores.


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Here was "Requiem" before it became "Requiem Revamp" The whole reason i don't like Colored lights now.Blurs all the hard work out!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here was "Storm Troop'd" which i don't remember the CPU in it besides it was a quad core overclocked AMD Black E. & had 2 GTX260's in it back when the 200 series was big.I really loved this build it was one of my personal Favorites because of the Copper look.Cant find completed Pictures of the inside but the wiring was all loomed with the same look as the H50 tubing.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And just an Xbox360 i Modded for my Son and before anyone see;s the disk and says its pirated ,its NOT. My son is Autistic and destroys his games so i back them up and keep the originals put up so he don't ruin them Also has LED's inside so it looks really nice lit up.

    [​IMG]



    I realize these photos are off topic from my main build but i figured it would give you guys something to look at and how i progressed in my Modding. While waiting on my next Updates for the " Mass Effect 3 build"

    Hope you guys Enjoy them.

    Ok back to Modding for me.



    Take Care and Keep Watching! More "UPDATES SOON" :rock:

    Nah just a Bridgeport and Band saw. and some tapping . Wasn't that bad really. But that's only because my buddy is really cool and let me come over in do it in his basement after he got out of work. I wish i had the tools he had! I just have average hand tools and a few little bigger things.

    UPDATE !

    Ok as you may know from earlier posts and Updates i ordered the EK XTC 420 AND 280 Radiators knowing they don't fit in the Switch 810. But thats the way i wanted it.The Radiators are incredible and no matter what was needed they were going in. So this Update shows how i got the top EK XTC 420 up top.

    Once again thank you EKWB for your support and Sponsorship.


    Ok lets get started !


    Here is the Radiator and Fan Setup for Loop 1. As you can see its enormous and it will be inside the Case.On top of that the EK XTC 420 doesn't match the hole patterns on the NZXT Switch 810. So as you can imagine there was allot of work to do here and did it all with my tools at home which made it allot bigger of a job.


    The EK XTC 420 & x6 NZXT FZ 140mm Airflow Fans in Push/Pull Configuration :


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Now i start making a new plate to hold all the weight and with the correct hole Pattern using some pretty rugged steel:

    As i said before, and i will say it again Always wear Safety Glasses like the ones i have here which are an incredible Pait and very affordable from Mnpctech.com

    Smith & Wesson Safety Glasses i am always using can be found here: http://www.mnpctech.com/Safetyglasses.html


    [​IMG]


    Also Please DO NOT take your Safety Shields off your tools like i do. It is a very dumb idea and i shouldn't be doing it myself.Its a real easy way to hurt yourself fast.

    Well that parts done and out of the way.

    I purposely showed the tools i used so you could get an idea of what i Mod with. A few tools and your on your way to Modding anything.

    My Favorite tools i would have to be is My RotoZip and Second my DREMEL. Without them i wouldn't be able to do much at all.



    More Update's Very Soon ! Keep Watching.

    Getting so Excited now !

    Got tons of work done last few Days and gets getting so close to getting this thing up and running and starting on the Theme!

    There will be updates soon but i don't want to show the updates until they are somewhat complete. But it involved allot of cutting!

    Take Care and keep checking back.

    UPDATE!

    OK i don't want to keep you guys waiting for updates so i will post some of what i have been doing.


    Alright first we will start by looking at the begging of one of the biggest things i am doing to this build which is trying to have the tubing running along both sides of the top of the case on the inside of the cover but where they can still be seen from outside the case. This little idea has been very complicated with many obstacles to get past. Still not completed but here is where i left off on that till more parts arrive.

    [​IMG]

    As you can see from this Picture there is no chance of the cover fitting on over the fittings.

    [​IMG]

    So using this crazy dangerous tool.I made some adjustments to the top of the case to make it work.

    [​IMG]

    Nice cozy fit now!

    [​IMG]


    Next for some 5.25 Bay work.This is where tons of work has been done and still has to be done to make a dual loop in this build and end up very clean looking.

    Here are the stock drive bays in the NZXT Switch 810.Nice but this is just not going to work for me.

    [​IMG]

    There are a few things that need to be modded here.I need better airflow to to top Rad front fan because the XTC rad is so thick it comes very close to the top cage inside. The other thing is i need places opened up so the tubing can actually run through all these bays.And also the Pumps are going to be mounted inside the bays as well.And there are a few more reasons i cant remeber right this second but anyway everything needed a bunch of modding in the Drive area:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Everything at this point is still just in rough state.It will all get cleaned up and painted when i know all measurements are right and everything fits.


    Here are some Photo's of things starting to get pretty.


    [​IMG]

    3M Di-noc Carbon Fiber Sponsored by Mnpctech.com.

    You can get some from his store and its amazing stuff! Link is here for it : http://www.mnpctech.com/CarbonFiber_Gunmetal_Titanium.html

    [​IMG]

    Now to dress up my new Pump Cage i suppose you could call it: It's Aluminum i am using and it will be Polished to look like the rest of the Nickel in the build and will be finished off with Black Rivets.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Also a small fan update.I thought i was really in a rough situation when i heard the blades don't come off the NZXT FZ Series fans.So i went in to investigate the situation, prepared to sacrifice a fan to find out what the deal was.Anyway the conclusion of it all was the fan blades can simply be popped off and on carefully and i can still get them painted.

    Here was the investigating part:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Next i tested my theory which was there should be no reason i cant just pop the blades off and back on.It worked!

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Sorry for the long wait that time for Updates guys but i hope it was worth it. There is still tons to do be done to the drive bays but i wanted to update you guys with some of whats been going on.

    More Updates Shortly so Keep watching!

    Update!

    Package arrived today wonder what it could be? :thinking:

    [​IMG]

    Great nothing but Packing Peanuts. Didn't April fools already Pass ?

    [​IMG]

    Oh wait. Whats this buried deep under the Peanuts?Yup My PSU has arrived and now i can really kick some butt on this build!

    [​IMG]


    OK now to get serious.First i would like to give a Huge Thank You to:

    [​IMG]

    http://www.nzxt.com/new/

    For all the support they have given towards this build and to me personally.


    Next i will talk about the Hale 90 1000w PSU and show its specs and then finish the unboxing.


    80+ Gold Enthusiast modular PSU
    NZXT introduces the 80+ gold certified HALE90 series built from the ground up specifically customized for gamers and enthusiasts and offers incredibly efficient operation that will meet the needs of even the most power hungry enthusiasts.

    Specifications:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    OK now that we established its a great PSU from NZXT we can move on and finish the Unboxing:


    [​IMG]

    A cool little NZXT bag to hold all the Modular cables.That will be sleeved in Para cord when i am done.

    [​IMG]

    Damn isn't she a Beauty. Its almost a shame they are letting me get my hands on it. Because i don't plan on it looking like it does now for long.And it looks so good right out of the box.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Waste of a sticker on me:
    [​IMG]

    Take Care Guys and should have even More updates for you late Tonight!

    UPDATE!

    As promised i said there would be another update tonight.And here it is:

    Ok one of the biggest Mods this build is getting is ,I want it duel loop with the tubes showing through a window in the top of the case.So when you look at the case from the side you can see the coolant flowing across the top of the case cover on both sides.There has been a ton of obstacles to get this to work and I'm still not out of the woods yet.


    First i will start with the Fans.The fans i got from NZXT came in white.I told them i didn't care because i was painting them anyway.Then i ran into a little problem.There were plugs either melted or glued in place blocking the plastic ring that needs to be removed to paint the fans.This is the new NZXT FZ 140mm Airflow Series fans i am speaking of. So i investigated the problem and found out it was as simple as popping the blades off and popping them back on. So that being said 10 Fans got Painted today also.

    This is what i ran into when i went to take the Fans apart.Believe me i tried popping the plug out and knew something wasn't right:

    [​IMG]

    So i start to Investigate the problem by throwing a Milling bit in my drill press on low speed and slowly cutting into the plug.The plug goes all the way down to the bottom against the plastic ring you usually take out to remove the blades:


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I was more then willing to sacrifice a fan if needed to find out how to get these apart. No worries though no Fans were harmed in the process.

    Result was success. I found i could easily just pop the blades on and off if i applied slight pressure to the inside of the blades. I would do this to many times because you will eventually wear out the plastic clip that holds the blades in.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Ok so that problem was solved so now to start painting the Fans because i need them a darkish red color:


    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]



    Ok next i had to remove the top cover of the case and do some more Modding.I needed to add 3 Pass troughs in just the right place so the tubing on each side went to a separate loop and in a way that will make the end of the build look very clean inside for the amount of cooling in such a small space.I also prepped and repainted the top because if you remember there was a lot of cutting and scratches etc.Plus the new plate i made to fit the EK XTC Rad was still unpainted.


    Alright. Here we go:


    The top before i started today

    [​IMG]


    And the work starts

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And here is the start of what it will look like when completed.Allot cleaner and everything cut to the right lengths.But now you can see how the tubing will be showing through the side of the top cover.

    [​IMG]


    Hope you enjoyed the update.There is allot more to it then it looks because all the tubing has to run exactly in the right place to meet up with the Pumps,Reservoirs etc and still be able to clear all the other hardware.Not to mention i still need to get the top on :)


    Looks like a nice night to relax by staying up and Sleeving all night

    Take care and More Updates soon so Keep Watching !

    UPDATE:

    Here is an update guys just showing the State of the Mass Effect Build at this moment. Many don't realize when Modding the build comes apart and back together many many times.I figured i would show it this time.

    This is just to make some small changes to the backing plate for the PSU and some other things that needed adjusting. And this was all done Old School! No laser cutters here. Just Dremels,Rotozip and lots of filing and sanding. It still needs to be smoothed out a bit more tonight. Then it all goes back together. and then apart again a few more times. And finally when everything is in place and working 100%. Thats when i will start painting.

    Here are some Photo's for you guys:

    Had to speed up the Drill press a little.I was running on the lowest speed.This is just showing how you change speeds on a real drill press:

    And Back to Work. You can only imagine how much work it is taking a Piece of steel and making everything from scratch with just minor hand tools.It takes allot of time ,but at the end i guess you could say its a truly hand crafted PC. Damn what i would do for a Laser cutter and small Milling machine home . Sponsors? Lol just kidding. anyway back to work
    :)

    As you can see its getting Dark out so time to move inside and keep on sanding everything even and smooth. Here is the Current State of the Mass Effect build as of right now!

    What i actually got accomplished in those photos :


    .. Rough cut the whole for the PSU wires to go through.
    .. Made some of the other holes a little bigger for the wires to go through (They were a bit to small) .
    .. Made new Holes for the top and Bottom Fan wires to run neatly and hidden.
    .. Most wires will be coming from under the motherboard so opened them up maby 1 cm.
    .. Drilled all the wholes where i will be applying Rivets to reassemble the build when complete.
    .. Made new holes for mounting the new Modified Drive Bays .
    .. Also made new holes for the Reservoir Mounts (I will still be Notching these when i get to my buddies and can use the Bridgeport.to make them adjustable.)
    .. Filed and shaped the metal till my hands were ready to bleed.
    .. Next i used a DA sander and sanded everything smooth with a 220 Grit sand paper.(I want to keep the back plate roughed up so the self etching primer will stick very good when it comes time to paint.


    Probably forgetting something. But as you can see something so little takes allot of work if you want the end results to be a very clean looking build.This build will go back together and Apart many more times Just this week before everything is good.

    New Parts i had to order to get things Moving:

    This Build is Completely Liquid cooled by dual Loops all EK, Primochill and Mayhem's but sometimes it is impossible to not use other adapters to make things work.So this is where i had no choice but to use other products not made by my sponsors. (I am sure they understand ) So 99.9% of this build is cooled by EK ,Pimochill and Mayhem's and if i had it my way it would be 100% but we can only do what we can do.

    2 of these adapters to move my pumps down a little.

    3 of these so i could get to the fittings underneath coming through the Pass through's

    [​IMG]

    1 of these Blocks to make the angle from the bottom Rad heading up to the top pass through nice and clean.

    [​IMG]

    4 of these Low profile 90 degree elbows because the ones i had were to tall to work.

    [​IMG]

    Just those few fittings plus shipping was close to another 100 bucks ! So when people think sponsorship mean's is about getting a free build they are crazy.I spens a $100. couple days and i also have a fortune into this build.But don't get me wrong the build would not be possible without my Sponsors.But i am doing it not for the free stuff but for the ability to Show off the companies i love and use regardless if they sponsor me or not.Every Sponsor i have are Companies i Highly recommend and have before this build and will after this build.

    I also ordered some other stuff Last night for the build.


    1 sheet. Another 24" x 24" of 3M Di-noc

    100 feet of the White Para-cord i forgot in my last order because i though i still had some:

    Also Have some stuff coming from my Sponsor Primochill / Tyler Industries Thank Guys!

    6 Led plugs sorta like these that i used in Venom but they are from Primochill and not something they have for sale that i can see.

    [​IMG]

    12 of there Ghost Barbs More then i need but this will ensure i have enough.

    [​IMG]

    And also 12 black Clamps and they might be sending some other things also.


    Plus another great thing is my Birthday is in 2 days and i always wanted to Make High Quality stickers and Vinyl Decals. So i needed a really good printer for it.My wife bought and came home with both a Really nice Laser printer and really nice Inkjet printer from a Family member that bought them recently and never used them. I have been wanting to get this equipments for a long long time because in the long run it will save me a fortune on my Mods.

    Anyway here they are:

    The Laser Printer HP2025: (This on prints incredibly high quality)

    [​IMG]

    And the Inkjet which Canon from the Sticker making threads i read is one of the best Inkjets for making Stickers and Decals:

    UPDATE!

    Very exciting day today !

    A package i have been waiting for a long time now has arrived.This whole theme is counting on these items to push it over the top and the cooling is routed the way it is for this reason.

    First i would like to start by showing the story that made me want this person as a Sponsor and involved with this build.This story is very inspiring and and when i read it i knew i had to have him as a Sponsor.All my Sponsors as i said before are companies that i Love and totally believe in or i would not promote their products.Well there is no question i promote Mayhem's products and highly recommend them. (Just be sure you know what you are ordering because allot of his coolants are for show only such as the Aurora Product line.)

    Anyway enough of me Flapping here is Mayhem's Story and its a very inspiring and Amazing story. I guess it could be called a from Rags to Riches story:



    [​IMG]

    And a link to his Store: http://www.mayhems.co.uk/shop/en/

    Meet Michael (aka) Mayhem,

    " Mayhems (formally known as Mayhems Dye) started back in early 2009 by total accident. Michael (aka Mayhem) part owner of Mayhems was fed up of buying in dyes that were supposed to be made for water cooling yet would only last a few weeks at best are were never as strong or as good as described. After trying out many versions of dye made for liquid cooling Michael decided to make his own. Michael initially invested £5.00 on dyes.

    His first steps were good but not good enough so after more research and playing around he started to perfect his process and eventually produced some of the strongest water cooling dyes ever to hit the market place. These dyes not only looked good but they worked for long time in the Pc liquid cooling systems he tested them on and now are a re·nowned product and favoured by the modding community worldwide. Mayhems Dye was born.

    Next Michael took a look at the fluid market and thought once again that all the products on the market just seem to be gimmicky hyped up cooling fluids that never seems to work as advertised. After several failures at trying to produce the same sort of fluids Michael finally found success in his X1 formula. Not only did the liquid look much better than anything else on the market its thermal performance blew every other product out of the water literally.

    As Mayhems Dyes grew Michael knew he could not handle all the work load himself and invited Steve Verity (former owner of Themochill and www.over-clock.co.uk) to come see some of his products he was developing (Aurora). Steve saw the potential in the new products and has known Michael for a very long time. They both came together and re launched “Mayhems” on Nov 2011 with a new name and new web site.

    In Nov 2011 the new web site (www.mayhems.co.uk) was launched and at the same time mayhems Aurora & Pastel range of fluids was pushed into the face of modders worldwide. The take up of all the whole range of products Mayhems has created has literally changed the face of liquid cooling for ever and is helping change the way people see liquid cooling.

    In the very short time Mayhems has been around it has grown in size and now can produce over 800 Ltrs of cooling fluids a day (this is soon due to double up). These fluids are all built from the ground up and are all made in the UK which is something Mayhems is very proud off.



    Mayhems now has two offices and a warehouse and a product development centre and all so has several people working for them. They employ a colorist, a chemist and several labours to help with the making of the fluids. The testing of the fluids is second to none and there development of new ideas is just a force to be reckoned with.


    Michael said in 2009 on a forum to Tiny Tom Logan of OC3D “I will change the water-cooling forever.” and he still stands by that statement to date. "


    Hope you enjoyed the story where you can see he started out just like allot of us.He had an idea and he did something no one else on the market was doing and created the Incredible product line they have now.

    Here is what Mayhem sent for the "Mass Effect 3 - NZXT Switch 810 Build" :
