After an absence of a year or so, we're pleased to invite back bit-tech
forum user Mankz with his modding forum update. He'll be reporting every few weeks on the best new and ongoing projects in our Project Logs forum
, as well as any interesting threads from our Modding forum
too. Anyway, without further ado, let's hand it over to Mankz:
Our forums have seen a whole raft of new projects recently, starting with Nautilus
by lenne0815. The project features CNC mill work, plenty of carbon fibre, use of split moulds and a crazy idea - need we say any more?
Meanwhile, nhenhophach has created one of the most fantastic acrylic cases we've seen in his project ROG RAMPAGE
. You'll find custom water cooling parts, a completely custom built case, top-end hardware and much more in this project from Vietnam.
You might think that putting a mini-ITX motherboard in a full-size ATX case would leave a lot of empty space, but not in thechoozen's Corsair Graphite 490T bullet
. In this project, thechoozen has cut the case in half, removed the excess space and then put it back together again, combined with a killer paint job and custom panels.
Meanwhile, we've been looking at Nexxo's early plans for his Metaversa 2.0
in the modding forum; a project with influences that range from motorcycles to antique microscopes, which all led to a great discussion on steampunk. We've also had a little sneak peek a t-DSC-
by deathstarchris. He's not revealing very much at the moment, but we think the pictures say enough.
And last, but by no means least, we have our two-time bit-tech
Mod of the Year champion Attila and his newest creation, Cor Leonis
. If you've seen any of his previous work
, you'll know what to expect: beauty, precision, hand-made aluminium parts - it's all there. However, this time there is a water cooling setup too.
Seen any other projects or mods we should know about? Then let us know in the forums
