New Build added: Nemesis
Not your average case to pick…
When a mate of mine came to me and asked me what case would you pick today as your case too build, what case would that be?
My answer was quick and swift: Thermaltake’s Distrocase 350p
And that had us started on this award winning build!

New build added: “Liquid Devil By EKWB”
Today we added a new buil into our gallery: “Liquid Devil By EKWB”. The build was made for a good friend of mine who wanted a tight case with power and sleek appearance.
Lots of goodies were put into the build, a 5800X and the famous 6800XT “Liquid Devil” are doing all the hard work.
Re-Build: Ncase M1 becomes The Rog Tower
Earlier this month I posted The Ncredible Ncase post. But since then I have been testing and folding at 100 percent CPU and VGA and concluded even with the Coolermaster AIO that for the purpose it will be serving the Ncase is too small.
So out of the blue, a friend of mine asked if I would take his Phanteks Shift X case for modding or building. And away we go…
Like the Ncase M1, The RoG Tower will host the Ryzen 3700X, the Asus Rog motherboard, and so on. But with one exception: The CPU will be liquid-cooled by a joint venture of EKWB and Barrow parts. The radiator will be an 240 mm EKWB one SE type. The temperatures in the Ncase were as high as 71° Celsius, not insanely hot but still too hot for me.
So now the real test will come when everything is placed in the Phanteks Case.
At the moment will are awaiting some goods from our suppliers. Normally next week we will commence building again. The plan is to make some inserts on either side. Spray paint it in the colors of our theme.
Manu from mdmods.be has made us some beautiful custom cables. One for the CPU and one for the 24 pin motherboard. The level of craftmanship just drips from these and to say more, have a look at the pictures. Made in Belgium!
So stay tuned for more building updates!
Ncrdible NCase M1 Project
Hey guys, long time no see. As I have been busy with other stuff there has been quite some time since I did a new project. Now the project called “Golden NXT” has been sold, it is time to start a new project for myself.
For quite some time I came into possession of a Ncase M1. In Belgium, they are quite rare so I am happy to have one.
What is NCase ? check this link for more information.
What will happen to it? Well, I think it will be a three-stage project. Building and modding computer takes up a lot of money even if you sell one …
The first stage:
Buying stuff and try to get it to fit in that tiny case.
Well, the Ncredible Ncase project will host a Ryzen 7 3700X with 16 GB DDR4 3200 Mhz memory from Gskill. The motherboard will be an Asus ROG strixx X 570-I mini itx.
For the SSD I choose a Samsung EVO plus 512 GB and for now as graphics card a Sapphire R590 solely for budget reasons (remember 3 stages).
The Ryzen 3700X will be cooled at first by a stock cooler from AMD itself. I will be doing some benchmarks just to see how this cooler behaves in “loaded” conditions.
The second stage:
Well after the stock cooler, I will install an AIO liquid cooler and test again what temp and loads the processor can handle. I also will do a review of that liquid cooler.
The third stage:
The third stage will be: installing a full custom made liquid cooling system in that tiny case. A special reservoir for that case is already ordered. Again I will be testing the loop and temps.
So stay tuned for the next stage of cooling evolution 🙂
New Build : Matrix Build featuring the Ryzen 3600X
Hey all, we are back with another finished build. The working title was CyberPunk 2077 as a theme but along the way the owner changed his mind, leaving us with no name.
No worries, we came up with another: “Matrix Build”.
This bad boy packs a lot of heat and power, featuring A Ryzen 3600X and an RTX 2080 VGA card.
For the case, we took a Thermaltake P90 and loaded it up with lots of goodies. Here is a list of most of the parts used in the build. Click on the links for more info.
- Thermaltake P90
- AMD Ryzen 3600X
- Asus ROG Strix X570-f gaming
- 16GB Corsair Vengeance RGB Ram @ 3600 Mhz
- Bitspower CPU block Touchaqua for AMD
- NVIDIA RTX 2080 Founders Edition
- EK-Quantum Vector Strix RTX 2080 D-RGB – Nickel + Acetal
- EKWB-Coolstream XE480
- EK-XTOP Revo D5 RGB PWM – Plexi (incl. sleeved pump)
- Samsung 970 Evo plus 1 TB
- Barrow black fittings
- Bitspower Water Tank Z-Multi 400 V2 (Clear Body & POM Version)
- Thermaltake Riing 12 LED RGB x 5
- Custom water loop 14 mm hard tube
- ASUS rog Thor 1200 watt power supply
- Windows 10 Pro
This build has a full custom water loop done with 14 mm tubing PETG. The 480 mm radiator is cooling down all the heated water in the loop. Average temperatures are around 35 degrees on full load according to the owner. This build will be added to our builds page, as soon as we have more pictures.
In the next phase we are going to modify the case further adding some paintwork and newly formed shell onto the existing case, so stay tuned.

Parts arrived today for the new Cyberpunk 2077 Build
It has begun! Today some of the parts arrived for the Cyberpunk 2077 Build. Primary eyecatcher will ofcourse be the Thermaltake Core P90. Other parts are a stunning ROG Strix X570-F Gaming from Asus. The reservoir which will hold over 400 ml of fluids from Bitspower is awesome to look at and EKWB will power the whole loop.
More parts will arrive soon, so stay tuned!
Review : Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo
The CORSAIR Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo features a high-performance D5 PWM pump, integrated RGB lighting and in-loop temperature sensor to drive the world’s most demanding custom cooling systems.
We bought and used the Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo in our own Golden NxT.
The Golden NxT is a H500P with lots of space and we opted to put the CORSAIR Hydro X Series XD5 RGB Pump/Reservoir Combo on the right side of the case.
We will discuss looks, integration, pump, reservoir and packaging.
The loop on the Golden NxT has changed several times being this one the final loop.

After months of work and reworking the case, we finally have finished and yet also released the first pictures of our Bacardi Build V3.
The case has seen some changes along the years to become what it is now.
