Project log: Here
We were initially drawn to Tim Tranter's Trident project by the promise of some fantastic-looking waterblocks. However, when these proved a step too far, Trident's other assets were still awesome to behold. The stark white modded Lian Li PC-50B case appears deceivingly mundane from some angles, but the front reveals a hellish interior that contrasts brilliantly with the rest of the case.
Tim (aka Hg) also modded the roof of the case to make room for a dual 140mm-fan radiator, and fitted a panel over the front drive bays too. This involved severing the original roof, and replacing it with an extension to give plenty of room to the large radiator and its fans. This didn't prove to be too much of an issue, thanks to the fact that Tim's employer deals with sports car body panels on a daily basis.
With the all important trident logos and symbols sorted, Tim also added a slot-loading optical drive to keep the front of the case free from other hardware, and so that the disc slot didn't look out of place with the rest of the design. It's a classic mod that's been well executed, and it's sure to catch people's eyes at the many LAN events visited by Tim.
