    Even though this is only my second Case Mod, I have been using ASUS Motherboards for many many years. I have always found them to be well priced and having lots of great features.
    And today is no exception. ASUS continue to add all the goods to there Motherboards and GPU's, Even for there low to mid range hardware you still feel you are getting more for less.
    As you will see below "Small" can still make a big impact and still play hard. And "Colour" is not Black or White its a shade of what your Imagination can do with it.

    Below are two of ASUS products that I will be using for this build from ASUS who I thank for helping me with my second case mod.

    The Asus H97I-PLUS Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard and the ASUS TURBO GEFORCE GTX 960 OC Edition

    The Asus H97I-PLUS Mini ITX LGA1150 Motherboard

    This will be the first time using a board of this size. I find it hard to believe that something so small can still deliver so much. Just thinking of the doors for case modding this Motherboard has opened up for the different kinds of build that can now be done, that would have been imposable before. :)

    Unbeknown to me was this White TURBO GTX 960 OC Edition. The staff at ASUS could see what my new build was all about. And this White Knight is the perfect look for this build.

    I would love to go deep into the specs of this GPU. But I will leave that to the pro's at ASUS.
    here is where you will find all you need to know about the ASUS TURBO GTX 960 OC Edition.

    Curious to see where this goes.

    However, so far this is just an advert and I'm tempted to report it...:thumbdn: Please add some actual content.

    Project: POWER CELL is a go! :)

    Hi again every one, Going to be starting on some of the smaller parts first.

    To start off with im doing the out side water blocks/res there will be 6 in all three at the top and three at the bottom. All 6 will be part of the cooling loop.

    They will be fitted to the out side of the case, The three on top will be linked the one's on the bottom. So one top one will link to one bottom one, with 3x 5mm clear tubes and so on. on the back of each block will be one fitting that go's to a stand 1/2 mantel bent loop. back to one of the other blocks and keeps going. Lets just call the outer blocks (Loop rails.)

    So below I have started a quick step by step.
    for the blocks, after ill be adding the 3x 5mm tubes to the 2x blocks to make one (Loop Rail.) and this will be done 3 times.

    Will add more soon for the Loop rails. Still working hard on the Vector files for the case parts as well. And still working my full time job. Sleep! what is that I ask.:) But I have 10 days off after next week. For more Modding.

    Again as always thanks for stopping by.
    Cheers, Ken.

    Hello again everyone. Ive put the 5mm tubing for the rails on hold for now as I well get a better idea of the length of them once the case starts going
    together.

    So what I have been going is working on the Motherboard armor and the back plate IO shield that will lock onto the Motherboard armor, Still need to make a hole for the CPU. but still not sure what CPU block will be used.

    Hope you can see where I'm going with what I have done so far.

    Thanks for stopping by. :)

    Hello again.

    I have started working on the center res mount. So far I have made the casing, added some blue LED's, put some steel mesh around it. Still need to add a small electric motor to turn the black cover at the bottom. to create a rotation of light in side the case. Once that is done i will starting working on the rest of the res mount. And then add the rest of the trimmings.

    I would like to say thanks to forum member "primesuspect" for selling me the 400mm Res. it will be a Big help, Cheers.

    Hi All

    The CNC parts are now done, And are now being put together.

    Along with some of the hardware that will now be test fitted to the case.

    Then all the side pillars cut to size and will be added for the height, The Pillars will be box like to hide all the things you just don't want to be seen running from the top of the case to the bottom. MOBO tray has been made as well but still needs to be vented on the back.


    Hope you like it so far, Would love to know what you think. :)

    Hello again.

    Just a quick update of where I'm up to.

    The Power Cell is coming along nicely.

    I have been working on the base and the pillars one of the pillars will hold the GPU, The GPU will take air in from the outside of the pillar as well as the inside.

    Ive cut out and mounted the GPU and all is good. Still making the Pillars stronger by making them two layers thick in side the two layers will be a 20mm space to run wires and such to the top and back.

    MOBO and Pump are now in there places as well, Once all the hardware is fitted, and the case is complete all the hardware will be removed again so I can start painting the case. inside & out.

    Here it is so far. Yep its talllllllllll: And might I say Different. (H-700mm )
