    Hello,
    I’m AK MODs from Taiwan. This is my first time send a message, I am excited to show my work and hopefully learn a lot along the way.

    My project is called Praetor. I will enter with the C700P. The 4 bar handles will be polishing finished and the chassis will have a rough black finish. I will add a bit of aluminum accent inside. It will have glass on both sides with mirror finish. I will try to keep it simple with a clean liquid cooling setup.

    Hardware:
    Asus Maximus X Formula
    Cooler Master V750
    Cooler Master MasterFan Pro 120
    Nvidia Geforce GTX 1080 Founders Edition
    Zadak Shield 8GX4 DDR4
    Zadak Shield 240 SSD
    Cablemod Custom Cable

    Water cooling:
    Bitspower Nvidia GTX 1080 Special Edition
    Bitspower Fitting Bitspower Radiator 360
    Bitspower Brass Hard Tubing
    Cooler Master MasterLiquid Maker 240

    Custom Water-Blocks
    Custom Nickle plated copper tubes
    Custom Spray paint
    Custom Internal structure
    Custom lighting
    Custom Cable

    I want to thanks so much to all of my sponsors which I have a pleasure to work with!

    Sanding with waterproof abrasive paper is the pre-preparation of spray painting.

    The better the texture of product is, the harder the processing has been haha...

    The Praetor was designed to match the ancient uniform worn by the Roman commanders, known as Praetor.

    Enjoy.
