A look at my latest modding project

April 14, 2010 Leave a comment

A few people have asked what I’m up to on my latest project, so I thought I’d take a stab at showing some of the highlights.

I picked up the ABS / Tagan Black Pearl case last August – on sale at Newegg for $89.  This was quite a deal, because this is basically a Lian Li V2000 case which normally retailed for $200-300.  The V2000 is classic, and is no longer produced.  Only reason price is important, is because I bought this case to tear it up and cut it up – so wasn’t worried about losing a lot if I messed up.

The purpose of this build is simply to practice my modding skills and learn new things.  The hardware that will go in the case is as follows:

EVGA X58 Micro-ATX motherboard

6 GB Corsair Dominator Ram

ATI Sapphire 5850 GPU

Antec 850 Signature PSU

OCZ 160 GB Vertex SSDs  X 2

And, various water cooling components.
