Hi folks whilst I had no plans for starting any other projects until Silver Ghost was finished I got an email from EK waterblocks in January asking me to pick all the stuff I would need to build inside their new limited edition Vulture Case, Obviously this was way to exciting to pass on and that was never ever a thought so I got to thinking about what would look nice in the case............

Just love the red and grey thing so we are going to try and get in the zone with the colors and with the Case being so dam sexy In my mind they are well matched.

So this arrived last Friday:

The Case Is Made from 3mm Aluminum held together with 8mm M4 CS bolts and is a fantastic bit of kit this is of no doubt long before you have started to build in it.

The Specs :
CPU: Intel 4690k
M/B: MSI Z97I GAMING ACK
GPU: MSI Titan Black
RAM:Yes it will defo have some of that
PSU: Corsair HX850i
SSD: Samsung 840 EVO 250GB

Cooling by EK with all of their latest Blocks fittings rads and the new Vadar fans.


That is all for now the case panels have been acid dipped to remove the powder coating and we be getting re coated in a grey as to be honest the cost alone of the Paint to match the car was out of the question when I can powder coat it for so much less and will be much more durable for taking to a LAN so the next update will be when the RAD arrives and we can get to the loop this is a very simple and easy project. the case itself has been designed to make the loop easy for the beginner or lots of fun for the more experienced out there and will be as ever done with rigid tube this time its EK's own one rather than my usual E22 but I am told its very nice to work with Ill get to bending some this weekend bye for now

Hex Gear R40 Black Ice

Hello folks and welcome to this single post build log featuring the all new Hex Gear R40. Let me begin by thanking Nate and Hans for giving me one of 6 cases that have been sent out to the lucky people to be asked to work with this amazing case that has been designed with much thought about what makes a great case to build a water-cooled PC or an Air cooled if that is what you want to do. From the moment you open the box It is a joy to work with, very simple to construct in less than an hour from flat this is not an Ikea wardrobe it’s so simple yet so effective and somewhat heavy once built you do get a nice manual in the box and can build it in remote location with no internet. So the project is only a single post as the mods are not heavy just some low key stuff decals the odd change of colour with some paint and was really all about the Case as nothing needs to be done to it to build a W/C PC aside from drilling some holes in a detachable pump/res bracket so without going on too much here are some pictures of the case I have decided on using mine inverted and I got the white one and opted for frosted white acrylic accents I am sure by the time retail happens there will be a whole number of colours and types of acrylic as an option from the standard black or whites accents. So here she is photographed outside in the frost the other night.

The only drilling you need to do if you want to mount your pump or res to the detachable plate.

Think we need new thermal pads these ones look a little used but hey they will do one more time 
Resized Image

Had to give the back plates some matt black to match the profiles that I painted as the silver was not right for this build.

Next it was time to do this bit.

Before I go I must say that if you are in the market for a new case and you are thinking of getting one of these when they go retail then just do it you will be happy and know you got what you paid for and as a LAN rig the only worry would be the damage done to whatever this case hit if you dropped it as it’s like a sexy tank just pure quality all round. Designed with love owned with love and will forever hold a place like the TJ07 in my heart as a proper PC case hell I think I’ll buy a black one myself just a nice addition to my collection.

That is all for now folks I will take more Photographs soon maybe outside if we get some more frost 
