Project Timeless Warriors

Project – Timeless Warriors

 
So It Begins.
 
Personal Intro
Hi all those of you that know me or dont, I have been modding PC's since the year 2000 give or take a few years, I have been inspired over my modding life from modders of past and even some modders of new, I was modding back in the day when we used caravan window rubbers to put case windows into a PC (i know ghetto but we done what we could back then with what we had) I am known across various forums as rchiileea, Richi and Richie123 as well as r1chieB on instagram. I also have the Lucky advantage of having a wife who is very talented and hand engraving images using only dots that create depth which far exceeds my flat images i used to engrave with the trusty old dremel.

 
So let me introduce you guys to my latest project build that will be crazy mad, inspired by the samurai and will be built into Lian Li DK05x Twin PC desk, (hence the timeless warriors name). This project is going to be a labour of love, not only will it feature a lot of engraving by my wife, there will be also a heavy theme on samurai inside as well as engraved on the outside.

A very very huge thank you to Lian Li for supplying the desk for the project, was honoured to be offered it so thank you.

As some of you know from previous mods gigabyte have supported me with motherboards on projects so again thanks to them for being involved and helping out.

A big thanks to Toshiba for coming on board on this one too, with not only the OCZ m2 drives but some SSD’s too.

A big thank you to TeamGroup as well for supplying the memory for both rigs.

Of course two rigs are going to need two PSU’s so thank you to Seasonic for stepping up..

 
I must say again I have to thank the sponsors BIG TIME on this build for coming on board as it basically means they are supplying double the amount, no pressure to deliver then.
 

First off here is the case in question.

Looks great, then when it arrived, well it is huge, here is packaging next to my 1 series.

Funnily enough the desk comes in two boxes, one for the feet and one for the desk itself.

This was the lighter of the two boxes, the second box was not so light.

To assemble the case we have to lay the top section on top of the two boxes, then attach the feet.

Once the feet are attached, it’s a case of plugging the power for the adjustable legs in and raising it above the boxes, then lifting it into place (which is not a one man job :P)

For now that is the start of this build as I have to finalise the design for the engravings on the outside, once I have I will post an image of the plan to give you some idea of what is going to happen to this desk.

Project Tattoo Flash (tower 900)

16 March 2017 - 01:01 PM

Long post, but quick build I had to get done quickly and in time why waiting on parts for other builds, project titled tattoo flash.
 
First up a big thank you to the sponsors of the build.

Simple object of the build was to get a tattoo flash like theme and have two separate loops, having access to the Dremel 3d40 3dprinter two was going to enable me to hide the wires as best as I could too, and as the case was the Thermaltake Tower 900 this was going to be a challenge I wanted.

Thermaltake also sent over the watercooling components and the PSU for me to get this build done.
 
Second up was the motherboard, I wanted to make sure this tied in to what I was trying to do so step up the gigabyte X99 ultra Gaming that will be used with the Intel 5960X.

The other items in the list were 2x nvidia GPU’s which I had laying around from a previous project so it was just the SSD, M2 and memory to add, Lucky for me Apacer stepped up with these.

Apacer sent me a very nice care package consisting of a Apacer M2 z280 and 2x AS340 SSD’s to cover the storage they also sent 4x 3000mhz DDR4 Panther gold sticks.
 
Anyway enough of the hardware let us just move straight onto the build and what I have done
