    Hi guys!

    I am Filippo and I am a 20 years old italian modder! Last year I finished a mod with Cooler Master Italy, called Project Alpha, which had a lot of success! Then I had the luck to be invited to participate in a big project for Nanoxia, which invited me to Germany to build a desk pc for their booth at Computex in June 2015!

    I am going to introduce this new mod sponsored by ThermalTake that I thank immensely for the support!

    The Mod, in white & black theme, is based on a Core X9 Snow Edition to which I decided to remove the original front and midplate and to replace them with two pieces of acrylic completely designed by me and made with laser cutting and CNC milling machine!

    The project includes two liquid cooling loop which will respectively cool the CPU and 2 GTX 970 strix!
    Each loop has a D5 pump and a 480mm radiator connected by rigid pipes while under the midplate I assembled systems with flexible tubes to facilitate the assembly operations.
    The threads for fittings mounted on midplate were hand made, and the work was not so easy. The hard part was being able to have a tip that does not split open the plexiglass out of the hole, I solved that problem by bringing the drill bit to change the cut angle to the company I'm referring to the works in acrylic!
    All cables are sleeved by me, it wasn't easy since it's the first time i made a full sleeved cable set, but sleeves from Icemodz are amazing, and the will be cool :D

    But let me say the components of this mod, which I list below:

    HW:
    Asus Maximus VII Ranger
    i5 4670k
    2x Asus GTX 970 Strix
    Thermaltake Thoughpower Grand Platinum 1200w
    HDD: 1TB Barracuda
    Ram: 4x4 DDR3 1600 Avexir Core Red Led
    SSD: 1x Samsung 850 EVO 256GB

    Loops:
    2x pumps D5 Thermaltake (Pacific P1 black)
    2x trays cylindrical Thermaltake (Pacific T22)
    2x 480mm radiators Thermaltake (Pacific RL480)
    WB 2x GPU Asus Strix 970 Thermaltake
    1x WB CPU Thermaltake Pacific W1
    8x Fans Thermaltake Riing White LED
    Several fittings Thermaltake Chrome
    Tubes 16/12 PETG ThermalTake
    DP Ultra liquid Aquacomputer
    Aquaero 5 LT
    Power Adjust 3 Ultra by Aquacomputer
    2 Temperature sensor to monitor the loops temperatures.

    I take this opportunity to thank ThermalTake and especially Andy, who supplied me with such a large number of components to build this mod to re-enter in the world of modding after a stop of some months.
    I also thank Mundi from Icemodz.com who provided me all the material needed to create my sleeved cables!

    I leave you to the photos of the progress!

    Filippo

    Thanks:

    Ciao,
    che meraviglia...Bravissimo.
    L'accoppiamento pompe-cpu è bellissimo...Peccato per quei cavi sata in mezzo ai...Bello anche l'effetto che fa il lastrone di plexi divisorio...Imponente! Complimentoni e sommergici di aggiornamenti.

    Hi,
    What a marvel...Bravissimo.
    The coupling pump-cpu is very beautyful...It's a pity that sata cables cover the wiew. Dig also the big chunk divider made of plexi...Massive!
    Keep up the good work and send lot of updates.

    Really like this, actually bears some similarities to a build I'm planning. The completely open/clear setup is bold as we all like somewhere to hide the messy wires (!) but it really works out here. Nicely done :)
