Shui-Shen (God of water)

Project Shui-Shen,

Created by a flash of inspiration while i was working out… back at home I immediately started to sketch it on a small paper, later i draw it in 3D as I had to get it out of my head! When i made the first moving renders in Keyshot I immediately knew… This is it!
So days become weeks and weeks, months… step by step I designed all the DXF drawings for the metal panel that was a hell to laser-cut, acrylic parts, 3D prints, covers, structural supports and final details… In the mean time I made a couple other builds for different partners and with my enthusiasm i entered the Thermaltake season 2 global modding event with my Shui-Shen project. As the project got delayed more and more by customs, hardware sponsor and every other problem you can imagine, time flew by and before I knew it was almost Computex time!!
I needed to push harder so I skipped some key elements to get the build ready…. BAD plan!
We all know that was a bad move and therefore I didn’t get many positive reactions and votes in the Tt competition for the project… we all knew what the outcome of that casemodding event was... I was torn with a bad feeling as i knew my project was far from finished…that was a lesson i had to learn.
So a couple project’s later… I still had that burning feeling inside and all the key components slowly became ready, I was obsessed to finish this project whatever it takes! Meanwhile, I bought two Asus GTX 1080’s ref design cards, i really liked the design of the cooler it was a shame to take them off, but i needed to as they had to be water cooled! So I designed a special 3D printed cover to put on top of the water blocks… I kinda had the reference design back on the water cooled cards now... me happy ????
The time was come to assemble every key component in place, the custom designed milled solid aluminum feet, the water cooling components on the hardware and case, mounting the Asus Z10PE-D16 WS workstation motherboard, the Asus 1080’s graphic cards i had to mount in an angle so everything fitted on the standard case form factor the Thermaltake Toughpower DPS G RGB 1250W Titanium power supply with the amazing sleeved power cables provided by ICEMODZ!! Yeah I really planned the layout so all that sweet hardware fitted on that small space and still looked eye smexy!
When everything was in place and well tested it was time to tube it up and close the loop with number 1 KEY ELLEMENT… The DISTRIBUTION PANEL with a Perfect fit!!
MAN that view was heaven !! I could’t wait very long to show everyone what become of the project I was working on for almost one year! A huge weight dropped of my shoulders… now it’s time to shine my precious Shui-Shen! And shinning it dit! Displayed at CES, Computex and several events around Europe, it even got two articles in Tech magazines and nominated as Mod of the month at Bit-tech ... ow yeah people loved it.
