Hello everyone! I hope everyone is excited for the MSI Pro Mod Season 3! It is an honor to be asked to judge this contest as well as contribute a demonstration build! I will be doing a black and white theme mod using a Thermaltake F51 Suppressor case designed around the MSI z170 Krait Gaming Motherboard. The name of my build is the Achromatic Serpent, meaning colorless snake. Thanks to all the sponsors for the contest! Without them this would not be possible! In addition to the contest sponsors, Primochill will be providing my build with modding materials and supplies like acrylic, cables, sleeve, and accessories! Let’s move on with the hardware for the build! We have some great components that I cannot wait to mod! A few big boxes of goodies! Here is the canvas I will be working with! The Thermaltake F51 Suppressor! Well follow that up with the center piece of the build, the MSI z170 Krait gaming motherboard! You can also see the processor installed, thanks to Intel, we have a Skylake i5-6600k processor! To go right along with the crisp black and white theme is the MSI GTX 970 Graphics Card! G. Skill hooked the build up with some new DDR4 Trident Z memory! This RAM looks slick! Moving on to the 850w Tough Power Modular PSU from Thermaltake! Some super sweet white LED Thermaltake Riing Fans. Last up from Thermaltake is the Water 3.0 Extreme S all-in-one Cooler for the Intel Skylake processor! Next well show the Ttesports peripheral components that will be modded to the black and white theme as well! Well start with the PoseidonZ RGB mechanical keyboard! Here we have the Ventus X Gaming mouse! Last up from Ttesports is the Shock 3D Gaming headset! This thing is super comfy! That wraps up the hardware intro, we also have some SSDs on the way and should be arriving soon. I already began work on the F51 case by breaking it down to bare metal and removing the guts. Now I am ready to start installing my custom acrylic interior to best show off the hardware installed. While I am working on the case I have the hardware installed on my test bench where I will be testing all the hardware before modding it. After drilling out the rivets and removing the interior I can begin my mod with the nice blank canvas! It won’t be blank for long though! This is where I left off for now, I am working out the final design ideas which I will share next update. I wanted to have the case gutted and ready to start the rebuild going into week 2. Next update I have quite a bit or work planned so it should be a mod packed update! I can smell the plastic chips already! Thanks again to the contest sponsors and to everyone stopping by and tuning in! I will see you in a week!
