    Default Neptune's Trident

    Well, here we go again with another project! With BSG finally complete, the family settled in at the new house,
    and my work area in place, I can mod once again.

    This project will be a more traditional mod, in the sense that it won't be scratch built, or have fabricated engine
    pods or other appendages attached to it. It will be simple, clean, and functional.

    I originally came up with the idea to do a case mod that revolved around the number 3. As far as components go,
    it will have 3 video cards, DDR3 memory, 3Ghz processor, 300Gb hard drive, and three water cooling loops.
    One of the main features of the case will be three Primochill Typhoon III dual-bay reservoirs with attached pumps
    mounted in the drive bays. It was from these pump/res's that the watery theme was realized. The name lends
    itself well to the underlying water elements while staying consistent with the number "3".

    The case I'm starting with is a Lian Li V2000. It will have a trident-shaped window on the side that will wrap
    around the corner towards the reservoirs, and three pass-through holes at the bottom where the three 120mm
    rads will be located. Here is a preview animation of the case:



    With most of the planning done and parts ordered, I should be able to finish this mod fairly quickly.
    Special thanks go to Moddersmart.com for working with me to get everything I need for this project!

    Ok, so here's the case. First time I've worked on a Lian Li, and I must say it is a pretty stout case! Well built and nice thick aluminum panels.







    ...And gutted. That didn't take long! lol


    And I'm off and running.

    I really want to base my next mod on either that or the v1000 but they cost like 200

    Looks like an awesome design, but one question, and I know you have an answer. Where are the HDD('s) going to go? Just sorta wondering because I dont see anywhere they can really go other than next to the mobo, unless you are using external drives.

    A Bod mod is a good mod. Can't wait to see how this turns out mate, good luck.

    I haven't really settled on a location for the hard drives yet, but you are right, they will most likely go next to the mobo tray. I'm working on a trident-shaped mounting bracket that will attach either to the tray, or the floor.
