    Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build

    PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Good morning all my lovely people! I’m pleased to announce that #MomsMod is COMPLETE!! So let’s begin….. We start off first with the Gamdias peripherals, the Ares Keyboard and the Hades Mouse. Mask and paint time. Switching over to the Nanoxia CoolForce 140mm fans, we mask the frame off so we can get the fans painted purple! After a day of letting the paint dry, we are ready to start assembling the case. So far so good! That vinyl looks awesome! But now we need the hardware…. Let’s look at the tragic tower she has been using…… all that dust! YUCK! Rip the hardware out, salvage what’s acceptable, then get that Intel motherboard installed in the Nanoxia CoolForce1 case. Now it’s time to drop in an upgraded air cooler that might just do a bit better than her other one… That cable management……. Just don’t look at the backside I told you not to look! But…. we can fix it with these lovely Nanoxia CoolForce combs!!! Boom! Build is complete! One Lavender Everquest case mod complete!! Now what…….?!?! Oh right, need to address that old desk mess situation…. And ta-da! Now she not only has a setup worth showing off, but she’s got some extra organization for all her craft business And here’s an obligatory photo of me training the next generation of modders! My 3 year old diligently putting screws into the motherboard tray while watching YouTube on her tablet. As always, thanks for joining us on this journey and keep modding!!

    Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build

    PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Gooooood morning everyone! Did you miss me? Sorry about the long pause between updates, but I wanted to bring you some of the custom sleeving we are doing for the build. We’ve been on hiatus waiting for the weather to turn pleasant again so I can begin painting components. But we began sleeving……. And like all tedious tasks, sunflower seeds are a must to increase concentration! Starting with the 24 Pin we got our purple camo cables in place. Final shots of our 24 pin, absolutely loving the boldness of these Nanoxia cable combs! After the 24 pin was done, we switched gears and made our 8 pin EPS connector as well. Again I apologize about such a long delay in updates, hopefully as this winter is turning to spring I will have more to update soon!! As always…. Keep modding!

    Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build

    PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Hey everyone! Time for a long overdue update! Let’s make this a big one! First I’d like to welcome aboard our newest sponsor GAMDIAS! Who provided a mouse and mouse mat. Also, our streaming partner @SomeRandomChicx from Twitch who provided the matching GAMDIAS keyboard! To continue with materials for this build, we ordered some sleeving to make our custom extensions from MainFrame Customs! Now to get onto what you came for….. the case modding. We unboxed the case and got straight to work. First, we flipped the optical cages. Then took the case apart and reassembled it in a reverse ATX configuration. Next to strengthen the motherboard tray to finalize the mod. The hardest part was making the front mesh back up in a way that still looked normal-ish Our temporary pile of parts while we took the case apart. Our custom vinyl stickers! They will pop nicely against the black case! Until the next update, Happy Modding! Mod Components: Case: Nanoxia CoolForce1 Fans: Nanoxia CoolForce 120/140mm Keyboard: GAMDIAS Ares P1 Mouse: GAMDIAS Hades Gaming Mat: GAMDIAS NYX

    DDCM Desk Project: Unique. Simple. Powerful

    Now that you've explained it, I see it clearly now *face palm* That is a pretty awesome idea and I'd have to agree with you on the hand.... unless the bottom "cabinet" was full tempered glass then it might work. Although having a "Jack" flowing glass would be pretty awesome. ....even better would be to make it like the floating fountain.

    I'm guessing this was used with the box. Another cool idea would be to use one bottle, angle it slightly being held up by a hand, with a curved tube going into a cup.

    Ok ok.... don't shout motivation noted What I'd really love to do is do a desk build for Jack Daniels and make it out of one of their barrels, using gallon jack bottles as reservoirs.

    Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build

    Hi! I need to fix my notifications for this log. I never got notified of your reply so I apologize about the delayed response. The case is the standard ATX CoolForce 1. I am planning to turn it into a reverse ATX case. It's going to be tricky with the DVD drive slots and all, but I'm going to see how difficult it'll be. Look for post updates soon hopefully as we got the case in last weekend.

    DDCM Desk Project: Unique. Simple. Powerful

    https://pcpartpicker.com/list/jBy4r7 Good morning DDCM fans and followers! How about another DDCM desk PC update? So we needed a shot of the desk to put on our new business cards, so….. I figured I wanted to share with you. We are also in talks to do a hardware upgrade if the vendor approves it. Of course, none of this would’ve been possible without the amazing sponsors! The business cards came out pretty snazzy too! Until next time, Happy Modding!

  14. PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6 Hey everyone! Just wanted to get the mod log started for our newest case mod! It won’t be anything super crazy just a simple themed “Pay it Forward” mod for my mother. BACKGROUND My mother was always encouraging and supportive in my gaming growing up and to this day still plays Everquest(15 years later…). Because of this, I am transplanting her computer guts into a Nanoxia CoolForce 1 Tempered Glass edition case. Thankfully Nanoxia is sponsoring the case, fans and LED strips to make this a reality. So as we continue down this journey, help me celebrate a belated birthday/retirement/Mother’s Day gift. CONCEPT The front panel of the case will have the EQ logo in lavender and a vinyl decal shot of her halfling druid. The glass side of the case will be frosted with the druid logo. Her main character’s name on the custom PSU shroud. If we can manage to get the wood and hardware, upgrading her gaming workstation is a priority as her small desk does not have the storage to handle her crafts and computer. So I did up a concept for a desk that would provide her with all the organization she would need. WARNING!!! SPOILER!! Here’s the final before and after of the build and her gaming station. Feel free to read through the forums to see how we accomplished this! CASE MOD Before: After: GAMING STATION Before: After: Until the next update, Happy Modding!

    Haha thanks man! As for the Jack, that bottle is just decorative.... my gallon of Jack is hidden away from small hands. I might play with some RGB LEDs with that decorative bottle... but who knows
