Sweet - really nice attention to detail throughout. I particularly like the overclocked orange logo's - nice. :D

*Sigh*

Not to take away from the amazing mod, and hours of work thats gone into this, but.. (and i know ive complained about this again)..

I've cancelled my subscription to CustomPC now, seeing as the exact same articles are now appearing on Bit-Tech a few weeks after printing in the magazine, but with FAR more detail on Bit-Tech than in the magazine.

This Mod was the "Readers Drive" in Issue 69 / June 2009, where it was 2.5 pages, with hardly any pictures and not nearly as many words.

Can i seriously ask whats happening here, theres been multiple articles that have appeared in CPC now, that have then ended up on Bit-Tech too.. Too name the ones i can remember off the top of my head ; L4D Guide, Energy Drink Roundup, Readers Drive Articles.

Plus there are even reviews and such appearing in the Magazine that have been written by BT Staff, while CPC staff are publishing stuff on BT ? What exactly is happening here ?

That is an EPIC mod, the orange colour looks amazing and the hardware is to die for, very well executed.

Nice mod/case... I seem to recall this case was on the BBC news once discussing the art of modding and overclocking, and the reporter being pritty much clueless as to whats going on, funny to watch ;)

Edit: Linky

I remember the first time I saw this mod (Custom PC Readers Drives) and I fell in love with it. It is jaw droppingly gorgeous and the attention to detail is amazing.

@Sim0n

I'm sorry you feel that way - I can only speak for Reader's Rrives but I'm sure a similar thing applies to other articles. For Reader's Drives we've already mentioned that our aim was to increase expsoure of people who are featured but it works both ways - Reader's Drives winners will also be featured on Bit-tech while Mod of the Month winners on Bit-tech will be featured in a new section in Custom PC. I don't think there's anything wrong with that as coverage for those who deserve it will be greater which is a good thing. Mods also have a habbit of changing so the likelyhood is there will be slightly more up to date content appearing in the mag and online.

As for Bit-tech staff writing for the magazine and CPC staff writing for Bit-tech, well that is the plan as we are all part of the same team now since Dennis Publications acquired the Bit-tech last year.;)

Very nice but where's the power supply? I can't see it!

That's an awesome mod, I love the attention to detail. It just shows you don't have to create something from the ground up to make it a classic mod.

Anyone figured out yet if she is just playing dumb or really doesn't know what tubing could be good for in a Watercooled Pc?


Anyway, nice Build;)

Guys,

Slight cockup... most of the images used for this article are out of date. Those ugly GPU loops are gone, as are those orange (pink) SATA cables.

For the finished rig please see my blog:

I think the term cockup is a bit harsh - pictures were sort of intentional as we're talking about the build from start to finish. We needed large images for the article which weren't available for most of the very recent additions so some are as it was when we looked at it in Custom PC. I don't think this detracts at all from how impressive it is! However, I have included a couple of recent pics from the CPC Plog in the gallery!;)

I really like the logo! Genius is the guy that give it some thought!

But, as for a mod, it is good mod, not a fantastic one.

But to me, the really cool thing is that BT looks like is coming back to its roots! The modding community, where it belongs :D

Certainly a nice looking rig with some great thought gone into watercooling and without doubt a worthy Readers Drives winner ;)

I like both versions tbh. The elbows looked a little out of place, but still good. :)

as an enthusiast and not really a modder, this is the first "mod" i've seen here on Bit-tech that actually makes me go WOW!

no silly patterned acrylic, no wooden carved rubbish, just an awesome PC in a case that has a style and presence of its own. 10/10
NightrainSrt4 27th May 2009, 15:02 Quote
Nice mod! I really like orange and black in a case mod, just haven't gotten around to doing it myself. Good job!

I think what Sim0n was trying to say, correct me if I am wrong, was that why continue to pay for CPC if any of the big articles in CPC will be migrating over to bit-tech to read for free, all while being more fleshed out and including more pictures and information. I can see how that can be frustrating. He seemed as if this was going to be the trend then why continue to subscribe to CPC. I think he meant why pay if this is what is going to happen more regularly, and not just frustrated over more information here.

Sorry, no offense intended! I just hate those hose loops, as I got so much stick over that.

Thanks for the article BTW.

This is a thing of beauty. Simply awesome. I love the TJ07 case
mrb_no1 27th May 2009, 17:14 Quote
really not that impressed. the pain job looks nice and then essential all he has done is spent a smeg load on some wc parts and oc'd a pc, how many 100's of members on bit tech have atleast done the latter 2 to some extent? it looks pretty but i'm not impressed and dont see why its been published in all honesty. he's not even setting records in ocing and the loop cant handle the core very well at 4.2ghz if its reaching 70C or something like that i think i read.

peace
