Turning liquid into a computer case and before RGB was RGB #lenovo2011
Hello all, This mod came from a concept that I submitted For the lenovo Mod Contest back in 2010
My design was selected as one of the finalist and Lenovo sent me Thier Ideacentre K320 PC to mod to my heart desires. The winner of the contest gets to showcase thier mod at the 2011 CES at Las Vegas.
I had a few ideas in my head, and I sent them a rough design of a PC encased in ice for my initial entry in the contest.
Lenovo is sending me Thier K320 PC with the following Components
CORE_I7_870_2.93 8G_DDR3_1333 ATI_RADEON_HD5970_PCIE_2G 2TB_7200RPM_SATA2 Blu-ray Disc combo
The main transformation of this Mod is to replicate the Lenovo K320 chassis into a Liquid acyclic shell to give it the appearance that the K320 was encased in ice.
Features: Custom mold made from the original chassis to create the Acyclic Ice replica
Feature as many of the original details from the original chassis, keeping the screw less system as well as the easing to use hard drive enclosures.
Adding special lighting through out the system to show the performance modes of the fans all throughout the case. Red, Blue, Green
Adding custom water cooling and reservoir to keep all the components running at optimal overclock while keeping the system cool.
ATI Eyefinity System with custom Arcylic 3 Monitor Bracket.
