Back to the Mod
As the CEO and editor in chief of Precision Computing, I started this business with a vision, that vision is our new Slogan, “Technology Refined”. This year, 2015, is going to be a year that we venture into many new avenues, including news, our LUCID PC mods (a division of Precision Computing) MOTM, as well as many other ventures, including our forums which will be launched shortly.
Without further ado, lets venture into the purpose of this article, and that is to announce my entry into the Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2015. I entered the contest in 2009, with my mod entitled “Project Krypto”, which can be found on the Cooler Master forum here: Click to view worklog This project took “Best Of” in the full tower category.
With a lot of impressive mods being showcased through social media and forums lately, and more and more people beginning to enter into the world of modding, I have something special that has been in the back of my mind to create for a long time. While trying to figure out how I can gain an edge over my competition, while still doing a tower mod, the artistic wheels began turning. That is when it hit me, and I turned back to my first ever mod, and the reason why I began to mod. The obsession started in about 2006, and while I wanted to overclock my system, I didn’t have a lot of money to devote to a high end case that would have great airflow, as well as awesome styling. So I bought what I could afford, and made it work for me.
My love of modding did not begin with computers, but stems back to when I was young. I liked to customize my bicycles, baseball bats, basically anything that I could put my own spin on, and make unique. At the age of 13 I bought a BMX bicycle from a friend of mine, it was a PK Ripper, and had an all-aluminum frame. Well what would make this bike stand out? The wheels began to turn, and yes I polished the entire frame by hand. Of course this was after school and homework, and fortunately I still had a BMX bike to ride, because the whole process took me about 4 months, working over the course of the Chicago winter. But when spring came around, I was in possession of one of the coolest BMX bikes in my neighborhood. The following summer, was when I built my first computer in 1993.
I am unique, as we all are, and I like to showcase that by using my artistic nature, in creating a work of art.
This mod will be no exception, and the timing could not be more perfect. I will be taking a Cooler Master HAF 922, and turning it into the following, which I have drawn to give you an idea of my artistic vision. I present to you, Back to the Mod.
When I create a project of this level, I like to have a solid depiction of what my final goal is, and as always with modding, I am sure there will be hiccups and revisions along the way. This project is going to focus on the mod, not the hardware that is inside. Yes it will be fully watercooled, and have some nice components inside, but I do not want the components to take away from the reason we are all here, and that is to create awesome mods!
As I hope that I have enticed a lot of you, I will post some links as to where you can follow along with the build log. As always make sure to follow us on Instagram, and Facebook, as a lot of the time during the mod process, that is where pictures will be shown first. You can find all of the links below, and we will update on our Facebook page if we branch out into sharing on other forums.
Back to the Mod
The future is a mystery, the past is history.
We do not have the ability to turn the clock,
We must make the most, with every shot.
Changing lives makes an impression,
For the only way to truly surpass the boundary,
Is to make sure that you leave something behind.
