    [msi pro mod s3] - krait venom



    Hi guys and welcome to my build log for a mod I will be calling KRAIT VENOM. This will be my entry in the MSI PRO MOD Season 3.

    The theme will be based around the MSI Krait theme and will be all blacks and white.

    I will be transforming the Thermaltake Versa H34 and show that you don't need a high end expensive case to have a good looking PC

    Here are the main specs:

    Case - Thermaltake Versa H34
    Motherboard - MSI Z170A Krait Gaming
    CPU - Intel i5 6600K
    Memory - 2 x 4GB G.Skill Ripjaws V 2800Mhz DDR4 Memory
    GPU - MSI GTX 960
    SSD - Intel
    M.2 - 256GB Samsung SM951 PCI-E M.2 SSD
    PSU - Thermaltake Toughpower Gold 550W

    Cables - Icemodz Fully Custom Individually Sleeved Cables

    LEDs - Icemodz RGB LED Strips

    Thermaltake Custom Watercooling

    Radiator - Pacific RL360 White Edition
    Fans - 6 X Riing 12 LED White
    CPU Block - Pacific W2 CPU Water Block
    Pump - Pacific P1 Black D5 Pump w/ Silent Kit
    Reservoir - Pacific R22
    Fittings - Pacific G1/4 PETG Tube 5/8” (16mm) OD Adapter – Black
    Tubing - V-Tubler PETG Tube

    Coolant - Mayhems Aurora II Silver

    Here is a pic with the starting hardware, I will most likely use the AIO for the first stage of the build before doing a full custom loop.



    Thanks for checking it and stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hi guys!

    Time for another update!

    It seems like the MSI dragon has gotten out of his cage and into the build as I'm doing some test fitting with the Thermaltake Pacific RL360 Rad.

    The build looks like it will have a custom loop going in after all starting with this awesome and rather large rad compared to this case, already powdercoated in white by Thermaltake.



















    Once the test fitment is done, out with the dremel rotary, jig saw and scroll saw on this case before doing the paint job





    Thanks for checking it out!

    Stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hi guys!

    Back with another quick update!

    I want to show you some more goodies. Awesome Thermaltake Riing fans with white LED and Thermaltake Thoughpower 550W PSU which will be more than enough for this build as well as the the G.Skill Ripsaws V DDR4 memory.





























    Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Hi guys,

    All the rough cuts have been made on the case and it's pretty much all torn apart. It's now time to start working with some aluminum panels



    First up I shortened the I/O bracket and also the motherboard tray





    I completely removed the back as best as I could leaving just the PSU mount



    Also there is a massive hole in the top as well with some simple mounting left



    Made a cut out to clean up the front as well to better accommodate the front 360mm radiator



    Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more over the coming days which might answer some questions as to where I'm taking this mod by removing so much of the original case :P

    Cheers,

    Alex

    The motherboard tray is now mounted in it's new location.

    What I am doing is mounting the I/O to the top of the case to change things around a bit :P

    Here is the tray with the aluminum panel I made









    The 90 degree aluminum corner bar is mounted there for a shroud to mount to once the motherboard tray is in the case. I will showcase this once done

    Also here is how I am mounting the motherboard tray panel to the top of the case. Using these brackets and other 90 degree aluminum corner bars and leaving a small compartment in the top for cables to connect with ease.









    Hope you guys like the progress so far and stay tuned for more

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Motherboard tray is in for test fitting and also so I can work on other stuff inside the case.

    You can now see the orientation more clearly

    Also please ignore any ugly screws for now and also the bare aluminum. In the end it will all be black.





    You can see here the cutout I am going to make for a window on the back panel



    Plenty of room for cables to connect to in the top







    And plenty of room for cables in the back




    Now time to go work on a shroud!

    Thanks for checking it out guys and stay tuned for more!

    Cheers,

    Alex

    Hi guys,

    The shroud for the build is ready.

    It's from a 6mm thick piece of opal white acrylic. With some vinyl on it and an LED strip underneath, it should look pretty good















    Thanks for checking it out!

    Cheers,

    Alex
