Description

So here we go...

Good day modder’s, PC artists, overclockers and fellow PC enthusiasts.

I would like introduce to you my build… a day dream come true.

I call it, the Core V1 Mini k|ngp|n Edition.

There isn’t that much back story to this build. It goes like this. I haven’t built myself a PC since 2010. It was bonus time at my company and I was like, what the hell… let’s do it. I muddled around trying to be frugal, but decided to invest into this build a bit. The processor choice bounced around from AMD FX to a core i5. I never really built an Intel machine just because of the cost. This time around, I just went HAM as I’ll future proof this build quite a bit. I wasn’t really looking to water cool it nor was I really expecting the modding bug to bite me so hard in the ***… but it did. And did it put me on a mission. I’ll let the following parts like explain the outcome… LOL Enjoy the build, though I wish I had taken more pics and videos because this case has been modified extensively to make everything work… better than I expected might I add. Along with all of the other one-offs I put into this… So in the end this bug, you know that left me in a state of needing to build build build, also led to me creating a brand that I call… killRMODZ.

One thing that I would like to note about my build ethic is that I’m very fond of small form factor builds. Why might you ask? Well because one, it’s a challenge. Two, I don’t like my system to occupy a lot of space… though to each their own. Three… did I mention they are a challenge? LOL My build ethic also includes taking something factory and modify it into something aesthetically pleasing but not to a point where someone cannot reproduce it themselves or for me to create a custom one-off for them. I do have a brand so I apologize if it seems like a sales pitch as that is not my intention. Though I do think there are some mods here that fellow enthusiasts wouldn’t mind getting their hands on. But let us see what the future holds for me.

Lastly, I know there are blemishes. You may not see them but I know where they are. I wish I had a CNC Machine and other precision equipment. Also, this is my first time sleeving cable and water cooling. I learn very quickly and thank youtuber’s for their instructional(s)!!! So be gentle with my humble build.

A very special thanks to Orlando Laser Engraving (Joseph Visser) for my killRMODZ placards. Site: http://www.orlandolaserengraving.com/

A very special thanks to Kevin MacLeod for the use of his beat “Ice Flow” for my promo video.

And I have to especially give thanks to the merchants and vendors from which I was able to obtain my parts for outstanding prices. Access to the vendor’s stores will be under the designated parts… Build:

This build was so interesting I took time out of doing my long a** geometry HW to look at every single picture. Amazing job, and good job with the cables. You managed to overcome a lot of obstacles intelligently! +1

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

I'm completely flattered and blown away by your comment. I think you are the only person thus far that has an inkling of the thought and methodical process I went through to make this work AND perform. I truly appreciate your response, thank you!!! BTW, did you happen to review the build log on modders-inc.com's website? I have a video of FadeCandy running... the controller the lights up the acrylic bezel.

PCIntake 1 point 36 months ago

No I didn't review the build log, I just saw the pictures and I clicked xD. I enjoy looking at builds with K|NGP|N cards, and I've seen a few tutorials on YouTube relating to making your own custom sleeved cables and I know it's a hassle. Small cases are naturally much harder to work in, if people have trouble building a PC in a case with a low profile air cooler, then I could imagine what it must bee like to do a full loop. Glad to see your work payed off.

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Yep, one lesson I learned with sleeving and making connectors is to have quality crimpers. The crimpers I bought did the job, but not to the standard I would have liked. Another one is being sure your sleeve ordering is correct. My initial intention was to do thick sleeved wires. That is where I take 3/8 diameter wire sleeving and put 2 wires through it. I thought that would have given it a further unique look. But my dumbass forgot about that and the 3/8 sleeving was used for individual sleeving. THAT was a pain. For individual sleeving you have to use 1/8 or it will not fit as desired into the connector. So in the future my sleeving jobs should be a lot better. I will invest into industry grade crimpers for atx pins also. Smaller seem to attract me to the challenge of making it water cooled. I wanted to try and water cool systems such as these (http://techreport.com/r.x/2015_1_7_Uberslim_SilverStone_MiniITX_cases_can_house_dualslot_graphics/ftzrvz-1.jpg) just because of the sheer point of them not BEING able to water cool. I would have hacked up that case(s) and made it work... LOL. Thanks for the comment, i'm glad my work can bring visual joy to you and others.

This is some killer modifications you got here. It is pretty sexy looking. And a work of art if you ask me. You have my one and support for your great effort. It is paying off.
killrmodz submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

You know, comments like these to me is what it's all about when it comes to rig building. You truly got the artistic aspect of this build, which was my primary goal. The parts selected were going to deliver performance regardless so that was out of my hands. Though having the Gigabyte board easily overclock my cpu and mem to 4.5 and 3200mhz was pretty damn impressive. I've had no hiccups what so ever. Thank you, and do appreciate your backing!!! Glad you enjoyed the build.

Eltech 20 Builds 1 point 36 months ago
You are most welcome! I appreciate art, very much. You most certainly have it. :)
yunggamer03 1 point 36 months ago

hope you enjoy it! going ham sometimes isn't bad :p

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

LOL, yep you know it!!!! And I am, my ocd though is killing me as i'm already seeing things that I can change. But i'm suppressing it and letting the build be. One thing that I hope others noticed are what I call jewels. These jewels are red acrylic cylinders that prop up the MB due to modifying the MB tray, and the GPU just because that is one heavy SOB. I needed to take some stress off of the PCIE connections as it was flexing under the weight. Check out the pics again and you will see those "jewels"!!! Thanks again and glad you enjoyed that build!!!

afyeung 1 point 36 months ago

Is everything cooled by a 140mm Rad? Epic piece. Tons of effort put in to make everything look well and functional.

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Yes, but that rad is god awfully thick. It also is setup as a push/pull with a Noctua doing the pushing and a slim line fan that I found with the highest static pressure and cfm doing the pulling. Efficiency was the name of the game here. My temps, depending on my house temps are between 21-34c idle and under load 60-78c for the cpu. I did a heaven benchmark 4.0 on high and was getting 301 fps on some parts of the benchmark video and the gpu sat happily at 50c. So not bad for a single rad loop. Though i'm changing my exhaust fans with BGears as they double the cfm's of the current coolermaster slimlines with getting ambient heat sucked out of the case. Which is good, as it will remove any ambient heat stuck in the case. Hopefully that will garner a few more degrees cooler in temps. They should be here today. Badass fans too as they are all smoked out acrylic. Like see through black glass so it will keep the theme's color integrity. And thanks, I wanted to be sure that everything was functional and practical. I say 95% of it is. And one thing that I didn't mention which I should have is that the feet and the front panel are not fastened normally but are held with strong as magnets. I think that practicality of this is tremendous thus giving the case owner the ability to change aspects of the case on the fly. More so for the feet then the front panel, but i'm sure you get what I'm saying.

Love it, truly unique

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Thank you!!! I'm glad you think it's unique. After googling the V1 mini for concepts and ideas, i'm glad mine turned out like no other build. I was orginally going to go with the AMP extreme by Zotak, but no one had a water block for it. I asked Zotak for a schematic and i would have a custom waterblock built for it. But it's proprietary, so a big fat nope came my way... LOL Either way, the k|ngp|n card looks great in this little beast. Thanks again, i'm glad you enjoyed the build.

I have no idea what I was looking at in 80% of those pictures.

10/10 would +1 again!

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

LOLOL... I would love to explain to you every single picture because they do have a story behind them. Well not every single picture... just the subsets that are the same. Thanks though!!

GamingIVFun 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Looks like a lot of thought and work went into your build, It paid off. Love it!

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Thank you, and yes a lot of thought and late nights went into making this all work. I have a co worker state that the best part is the outlet ports of the waterblock for the k|ngp|n card. Because it's not supposed to be that way but it is and looks like it's supposed to be there. Again, thanks for the comments! I'm truly humbled.

cgchambers93 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Amazing build!

Beautiful Craftsmanship. I would buy a PC from you if I didn't want to build it myself. I'm sure you feel very accomplished. +1

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Well cgchambers93, that is my end goal. I want this to be a platform to launch custom rig building for customers. The only difference is that I will contact and work with the customer in delivering exactly what they want. The only caveat is that it is limited to mini itx and micro atx. I'm very fond of small form factors whooping *** and taking names. I have another project in mind dealing with this case again but in white. If I get the sponsorship from vendors, after the build, I will be raffleing it off. I don't want to keep my builds as I value them as a piece of art. So I would rather have the fans enjoy this piece of art rather then it just sitting in my house. Not looking to get rich monetarily, but rich through the enjoyment shown by fans and customer a like... if you get what i'm saying. Check out my youtube and facebook. I will be posting all future builds there and on other site also... Thanks for the outstanding feedback. I truly am humbled.

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Oh, just to add... if you ever would like to discuss your build I would love to have that conversation with you. Sharing ideas is a great way to get to your end state when it comes to a build. All credit will belong to you as I don't mind sharing concepts or ideas. What case do you have in mind!?

cgchambers93 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

This is my first and only build as of now. https://pcpartpicker.com/b/yhbj4D

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Just checked it out... good start. What end state did you have in mind?

cgchambers93 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Open loop watercooled, New pascal or polaris GPU, Sleeved cables. Is it ever done? something new will always come out.

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 2 points 36 months ago

Nope, your right... it's never done! As you can see i just upgraded my exhaust fans. LOL

mmdoran1 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

What a great job. You made a compact and powerful computer into a work of art. I love what you did with the Thermaltake Core V1 case. Already a great ITX case at an equally great price. I thought of using it myself but instead opted for the Corsair 380t because of the handled design.

killrmodz submitter 1 Build 1 point 36 months ago

Funny, I was going to go that route also. But saw this case and was hooked. I'm a fiend for small itx builds. Thanks!!!

Fantastic build work, well done. Looks like you put a lot of thought into how everything should go together in such a small case.

Wow, thanks for reading through everything. Did you read also through the build log on http://www.modders-inc.com/forums/showthread.php/4751-Core-V1-Mini-k-ngp-n-Edition ? This log is similar I just have a further break down of certain sets of pictures so the viewer has an understanding of the logic I went through during that phase of the build. As for competition, i'm not looking to best anyone. I just want everyone to enjoy the work and thought I build into this and future builds... which I will now segway into what I would like to happen for myself and as a question posed to everyone who reads. Outside of building custom rigs for customers after I purchase my CNC machines (router and laster engraver/cutter), which is what I would like/love to do... funny thing as I was typing my BGears 80mm fan replacements just came in, LOL. I will post pics up shortly. You know, I will propose my idea and ethic later, I want to finish going through all of the comments and replying to them. I also want to post the pics of the fans, they are pure sexiness!!! LOL Thanks again... and I love the suitecase/case. That's a badass incognito gaming system you have there!!!!

Wow, i'm humbled by your comment. Just FYI, I went into the Marine and did IT. I've been doing IT for all of my life and I will tell you this. Doing the customizing isn't about being trained, per se. But having a vision and being diligent in achieving that vision by any means. I taught myself how to sleeve. Was methodical in labeling each line as to not **** something up. First time repinning ATX pins. There was a first time for a lot of things in this build. Creativity is one thing. But desiring it and manifesting it... I just can't put the words together. If you have the drive and are will to ASK for help or LOOK for assistance, you will achieve your goal. If you have any questions, please drop me a line. I have no problems discussing rig building and exchanging ideas! Take care and good luck!!

Thanks for the accolades!! I'm sure you will more then just achieve but excel beyond your goals. You've been trained to do so... ;-). I'm staring my write up for the next build I want to do. The only difference is that I don't want to keep my builds. I want to vlog the building process. I can generate revenue that way from youtube and get subscribers. Then after the end of the build, hold a contest to give away that rig. Of course propping up all of the vendors that support my build as they are the ones that make it possible for me to build anything at all. You'll see it, hopefully soon... Until that time, keep building, keep learning, keeping dreaming, keep achieving....
