Sponsored by: http://us.creative.com/ Hi all, my company CustomPCMAX is going to be collaborating with Bill Owen at MNPCTech on custom modded gaming PC. The whole project is a work in progress, but here is what we have so far. Overview: Bill has received a pre-production NZXT Panzerbox case. His is going to be handling the modding of the case. NZXT was really cool in allowing him to get his hands on this before it is even in stores. This will be the "first EVER modded NZXT Panzerbox". Here is a pic of the case and a link to a video review: The case is going to be modded in tribute to Wolfenstein 3D since we both have fond memories of playing this game. Bill just sent me some rough sketches that he and Brad (MNPCTech's painter) made for the paint job. I think it is going to look very cool! A window on the left side will have logo outline cut in the center and painted...probably smoked acrylic window (see concept pic 1). The right side panel will have an airbrushed mural of one of the enemies with what looks to be nuclear powered gun, background is storm cloud filled dark sky and Messerschmidt flying over (see concept pic 2). The perforated mid section of the case will be painted German camouflage, with German cross painted over the front fan, and nuclear symbol from same enemy soldier painted over top fan. Green light will eminate from the green LED fan and green cathodes. So, you ask... "Nate, why are you involved in this project?" I am going to be providing the "guts" to this system. I run CustomPCMAX, a small Gaming PC Building company online. Me and Bill realized that we work in the same area (Mpls, Mn), so Bill was gracious enough to let me install a PC in one of his custom modded cases. This is very exciting for me, to say the least. Internal Components (confirmed): NZXT Precise Power 1200 Watt Modular PSU Creative Labs - PCI Express Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium Fatal1ty Championship Series AMD Phenom II x3 720 CPU ATI Radeon 4890 GPU Corsair 2x 2GB sticks (4 gig total) XMS3 DHX DDR3 1600 mhz Ultra 120 Extreme Revision A (AMD CPU Version) Anyways, I think it would be cool, the Phenom will OC good (3.4-3.7 ghz average) and Radeon 4890 will be awesome. Future Things to See: Video worklogs of the modding and installation. Benchmarking, OCing, gaming... all the fun stuff! Creative Labs is also providing me with one of their Vado video recorders. I will be using that to record my video worklogs of the hardware installation. Please let me know what you think! If you are "digging" this mod, give us a digg!
