“Just an ordinary day at the office” says Rok Spenko one of the EK R&D team members. Coming up with new stuff is not an easy task, and just like every “creative lab”, not all ideas get realized. Some get discarded, some are just too complex, but eventually, some ideas get to see the light of the day. The liquid cooling loop built in this Corsair Carbide AIR 540 case is nothing special. It is a simple one CPU, one GPU, one radiator, one pump loop. But… it has some special parts in it, and you will surely recognize them.
Liquid cooling does not have to be flashy and full with RGB. It does not need to have a heavily modded case. In fact, you don’t even need to have custom sleeved cables. Sometimes, liquid cooling is used for regular power-packed PCs, simply because it offers the best performance. Also, you get to have a very cool looking silent PC. This build is brought to us by Nenad “neSSa” Đorđević, the host of SS PC Modding.
What do EK employees do in their free time? Simple, create more awesome stuff! The build that you are looking at comes from EK R&D wizard Simon which is actually a boosted In Win H-Frame Mini. The thing is boosted in every aspect because it is raised on a radiator to conserve space. The other main feature of this mod is the custom flat reservoir that integrates the DDC pump as well!
Project Aorus was initially thought to be a simple show build with some water cooling and custom cables, but as Hans Peder “p0pe” Sahl explains, it often happens that he gets carried away and decides to make his own custom water cooling parts for the build. This project was first exposed live in Leipzig at Dreamhack 2017, Gigabyte – Aorus event.
It is hard to go unnoticed when you build a PC in one of In Win`s D-Frame 2.0 open frame cases. Malik Custom pulled off a clean and minimalistic look while he managed to exploit the stock gold paint job of the D-Frame, which is not an easy task. For this magnificent build, Malik Customs was inspired by motorization and industrial design, while the specific character of the In Win D-Frame 2.0 has just added a pinch of elegance to it.
Open frame cases are becoming more and more popular these days, and proof of that, among others, is the Core P3. But, in this case, it is not the case itself that we are interested in, but rather the rest that High Resolution Computers built. Have a closer look at this beauty!
In this episode of Featured Builds & Mods, we are presenting to you Rhapsody in Purple. It comes from Bulgaria, and actually, it is made by a local hardware shop Desktop.bg, to be more precise by the hands of Bogdan Katanski. It’s not all that common to see a hardware shop doing a build like this, but if you see someone punching so much power into a mid-tower case, you know they don’t mess about!
The In Win H-Frame 2.0 is a beast and masterpiece by itself, but NGEN decided to turn up the dial. So, when something is already impressive, it is kind of hard to improve it, right? Since this is not NGEN’s first build, nor last, we are pretty sure that they got this one just spot on. But don’t let us bias you, enjoy the pictures and feel free to share your opinion!
We will kick off the new year with a project from Danny Böhm, that was actually finished in late 2016. Just look at that beauty! Danny builds many PCs, but most of the hardware he uses has quite a dark scheme. This is his personal system and it should be different, white, as white as possible!
PC modder Atila decided to give tribute to the place where he got introduced to modding, overclocking and water cooling for the first time. This build is the result.
