    Ive been very busy with a new job I landed so havent been modding much lately. Although, Im going on a vacation for one month in USA and I want to finish this project before that so I have some pictures of a almost ready casemod, want to see? I added some copper pipes to the build! On these pictures its not finished, just testing it out. But what do you think? I also added a windowframe to the sidepanel, made by E22, also thanks to HCP for the sketch. I think the windowframe fits perfectly together with the fangrill, what do you think? Im working on finalizing the loop and installing everything else. As soon as thats done and the loop is filled I will start working on the final photos and post them for you here. With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's

    You are beautiful! Im almost finished with the repaint of the case, just the last layer of matt clearcoat left. This time I will be putting the case together with M3 screws instead of rivets, cause I like to have my cases modular if I have to take it apart again. Im also going to change the casefeet on this case. The original ones is the regular plastic ones that many cases use, I will change them to some that are made out of aluminium by Fannblade. I love small details like this, just the thing that I know that the feet are handmade by a person on the other side of the world just for me makes the build more special for me. And they sure look nice too! Thats all for me today. Im waiting for two fans and a can of clearcoat, when the painting is done I will be assembling the case and start installing the hardware and keep experimenting with the copper pipes. If you want more updates from me you can check out my facebook-page where I post things every day! With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's

    Hello everyone! I finished Cold Winter a few weeks ago so now I can focus on this build again. I have received everything from EKWB and I started working on the mod today. I will use a 240mm XT radiator from EK now and those are 47mm thick instead of 30mm as the old one from Alphacool I had. It was already hard to fit everything with that radiator so how could I fit a thicker one? Well I started to look around for slim fans. I knew Scythe made 10mm thick fans but I havent had good memory of those so I kept looking, finally found Prolimatech's Ultra Sleek Vortex 12 which are 15mm thick, perfect! I ordered some of those and they really are nice, performs like regular 25mm thick fans. But it wasnt enough there either, what I did today was to cut down the frame of the fan to be able to "integrate" the fans with the radiator. I let the images explain. As you see there is a clear difference between these fans integrated in the radiator and regular 25mm thick fans. This actually takes less space than the 30mm radiator and regular fans. Many might think that this will totally ruin the performance of the fans. Well I removed the fan frame, but it was replaced by the frame of the radiator. I also tried it out and it still blows a lot of air through the rad, so dont worry! Another thing I will do is to run the custom loop with chromed solid copper pipes, I had that idea from the beginning but not the knowledge, I still dont have the knowledge. But maybe some bigger "cojones". I started experiment some with the pipes today. What do you think? I will keep working on this project as much as I can, I want to finish it because this will be my new main PC to use. Right now Im repainting the inside of the case and Im also waiting for a aluminium frame that will go around the window. With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
  6. Thank you! More are coming
  7. Thank you. I love your projects!
  8. Thank you! Thanks! Yeah I love small cases.
  9. Hello everyone! So I finally finished Cold Winter, the third version. I went back and checked when I started the first project log for this case, 2011-01-04, a while ago. However, this mod has meant a lot to me, this was the second serious project I made and the first one I was really satisfied with. Since then I made a second version and then started planning a third version that I promised myself was going to be the last, and here it is! The sad part is the scratches on the acrylic, this was made when I built this case at my school, someone there thought it was funny to start etching stuff on it, the same happened at Dreamhack. So sad, I tried as good as possible to polish it but not with a really good result. The good part is that isnt really easy to see if you dont put a light right on the scratches. I want to say thank you for all the nice comments and feedback of Cold Winter and I also want to give a big shoutout to the sponsors for helping me with the hardware! EKWB! Thank you for helping me. Be Quiet sponsored me with a Shadow Rock 2. Gigabyte sponsored me with a GA-F2A88XN-WIFI. MNPCTech sponsored me with this fan grill to have in the front, should look awesome! Clear Acrylic 120mm Overkill "Nautilus" PC Fan Grill from Mnpctech.com Well do you want to see the final pictures? Here you go! Ill be back here with more updates on other projects. Until then, I would be happy if you would like to check out my facebook-page where I post all my projects, updates and giveaways. Check it out and like it. Thank you everyone! With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
  10. The loop is filled with Mayhems, its leaktested and the computer boots up! This project is now finished. I took some pictures of the result, the final pictures will be taken tomorrow though, but here are some sneakpeaks. What do you think? With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
  11. I want to start by announcing a new sponsor and thank them for all their help, EKWB! Thank you for helping me and sending me: 120mm XT Radiator Supremacy Clean CSQ Nickel-Acrylic RES X3 150mm Fittings I started out installing the loop to see how I wanted everything, the RES is installed in the top like this. The 120mm XT rad goes in the front of course together with the DCP 2.2 pump on the bottom. The entire loop from behind, whats missing here is the cover over the PSU and the pump, working on that right now aswell as fixing all the cables to perfect lenght. I cant get a good photo from the side because of the tinted plexiglass, although, as soon as I have some lights inside the case there will be good pictures. Last picture of the day! What do you think so far? I have dissassembled everything now to finish the last small details. Complete the coverplate for the PSU and pump. Fix all the cables to perfect lenght. Install a SSD. Leaktest. OS Install and config. Hopefully Ill have a new update this weekend, until then, have a good day! With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's

    Im still waiting for all the watercooling gear from EKWB so I havent started modding yet, I need the radiator to start measure out things. I could give you some pictures of the new hardware I got though. I got Be-Quiets silencing kit, cause Im going to make two sets of sidepanels, one with windows and one without and with silence mats on it instead. The MSI Z87I looks really good, black caps is awesome! This GTX 760 from Zotac is really cool to, really short cooler and it still fit a waterblock if needed. I also want to say thank you to Caseking.de for giving me awesome prices on this hardware! I hope I could start give you real updates soon! With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
