SparklePony - #ttuk2020casemodchallenge

User Image

Hey there folks.
I am very humbled to have been selected as one of the five finalists for the (insert link)Thermaltake UK 2020 Case Mod Challenge, and hopefully my build progress can at least put a smile on your face during these difficult times.

The name of my mod is Project SparklePony (yes I know that is slang Emoji) and will feature plenty of ARGB/Glitter/Unicorns/etc.
My stepdaughter will be helping me out as it will ulitmately become her case (I can't let go of my P5!).
The concept is partially a jibe at RGB itself, whilst also fully embracing it; but also to create a system that looks clean and striking even when all the 'Unicorn Vomit' is disabled. So key colours throughout will be black/white/grey.



All 5 contestants have been given the same components to work with, with our deadline currently being 25 July 2020.
I will not be starting work on the build immediately, as I still have a few weeks of academic work to complete; but once that is out of the way I will post regular updates.

Below is the final product:



If you vote via this gleam page you could be in with a chance of winning your very own View 51 and 850W PSU!

Stay home, stay safe!
