The PC Of Souls | An Avatar Themed PC
The PC Of Souls | An Avatar Themed PC
Hello everyone, once again I have been given the oportunity by Thermaltake Technology INC to design and complete another awesome case mod. While they choose the case for me, the Thermaltake Core P3, the design aspect is all mine. So I am choosing something that I have been thinking about for awhile. This mod will be featured at the Thermaltake Suite in Las Vegas Nevada for CES 2017. Make sure if you are going to attend that you find me and say hi and we can take some photos together!
When I first watched some of the commentary and was reading about the movie James Cameron’s Avatar I remember him speaking of how he had to wait for technology to catch up to his vision so the movie could be created in the way he wanted, with the stunning visual affects that he had pictured in his mind. I often feel this way when beginning a mod, and sometimes it takes a little while to figure out exactly how I am going to execute something so the end result is how I pictured.
I thought creating something that could blend creative vision, and take advantage of my creativity to turn it into a PC Mod could turn into something really cool, and what better case the the Thermaltake Core P3 to showcase it.
So far I am working on the component list, so those details will be revealed later, but let’s take a look at the parts that have been supplied by Thermaltake Technology INC that showed up on my doorstep today.
The components can be found here from Thermaltake Technology INC

When choosing a business to support and maintain your business, services, or just your personal computer, ask yourself; “What credentials should I expect a company to have?” In answer to that question, many companies have certifications, degrees and other forms of identification that they can purchase through many online forms. But do any of those places have recognition from online sources, or Industry Leaders to prove their worth in their industry?
Precision Computing’s CEO and Founder Marc Molella has been featured by many Industry leaders and credible news sources for his work in these fields. Two of his motto’s are “If I can’t fix it, it can’t be fixed.” and “We build the best.” This has been proved to be true. Please view some of the links below to see the sources that have accredited our CEO and Founder Marc Molella for his accomplishments.

Quakecon Mod : The Arena
Quakecon Mod : The Arena
Quakecon Mod : The Arena, In 2015, we stepped foot in the doors of Quakecon for the first time. We were invited by Modders-Inc who run a yearly case mod competition, and wanted to start a live modding competition. Of course we accepted the chance to be involved in some live modding. You can find the final pictures below of our mod in it’s final form. We were proud to have taken first place in the live mod contest and the case mod division of the modding contest held every year. Maybe one year we will be back to compete again!
This rig was also featured by Nvidia in their YIDIY section here:

Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q
Dell releases the Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q world’s first 30-inch 4K 120Hz 0.1ms OLED Monitor
No, that wasn’t a typo. We were first introduced to the Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q back at CES 2016, where Dell was showing off their very first monitor to utilize an OLED panel (Organic Light Emitting Diode). The Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q offers a 120Hz 30-inch OLED panel sporting a ‘4K’ UHD resolution of 3840×2160 – offering an impressive pixel density of 146.86 PPI, and a breathtaking response time of just 0.1 milliseconds. The monitor can reproduce 1.07 billion colours (hence the 10-bit panel) with support for a colour gamut of 100% Adobe RGB and 97.8% DCI-P3 and has a 400,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, although the manufacture confesses that the value is only that because the testing equipment won’t go any higher. As far as inputs go, the monitor is fitted with a USB Type-C connector, HDMI 2.0 and mDP 1.2 ports.
But all of this seems too good to be true, that is until you take a look at the price tag: Coming in at a whopping $4,999 USD, the Dell UltraSharp UP3017Q display is aimed at serious content creators and professionals who work in colour-critical environments. But of course, like any shiny new tech, I expect the price to fall once competition kicks in and we begin to see more affordable alternatives, although that might not be in another 1-2 years.

Cooler Master Master Case Pro 5 Fallout Modding
The Cooler Master MasterCase 5 Series
At heart, the MasterCase 5 advocates a new relationship that binds component makers and users closer together. Its elegantly smooth, flexible FreeForm Modular System supports multiple outlooks, allowing you to upgrade rather than entirely replace your case as your needs change over time. Go with either basic dual top handles and standard door of the MasterCase 5 or an elevated mesh top cover of the MasterCase Pro 5.
FreeForm™ – Unparalleled flexibility to upgrade your case via the addition of top panels or doors, adjusting aesthetics,
thermal performance and layout flexibility.
accessories like fans, drive cages, and water cooling
and 2 at the top
unique ability to horizontally shift bottom-mounted HDD
extra-long graphics cards
supply and cables for clean management
behind motherboard tray and two above partition panel
radiator support and exterior augmentation
Customize with External Modularity
Easily customize your case by adding a top cover and water bracket for a new look along with liquid cooling radiator support, freeing up space inside the case. And if you want to show off your system, a window side panel is also available. These options are included in MasterCase Pro 5 version or available separately.
Now that we have an idea of what the case is capable of out of the box, I have some unboxing photos for you, as well as tear down before we get into heavy modding.
My first thought, the case is very nice, however, being Freeform™ the case was not as modular for modding. Yes the intended components moved around easily, and removed easily, but when you get into removing rivets and the nuts and bolts of modding, the interior panels, including the motherboard tray, and the piece above the power supply, did not come out very easily. There were slotted notches in the front of the case, that resulted in scratching up the case to remove the panels. To someone who plans on painting and fully modifying the case, this would not be an issue, but for someone just looking to make some minor interior changes, this could cause scratch marks that are unwanted and reason for a repaint on at least the interior.
Honestly, at the cases price point, at the time of this article, at just over $130 USD, these are not really large issues, and do not take away from the mold-ability of the case to be able to make it your own. Enjoy the photos below, and look forward in the near future to an entire session of Master Case Fallout Modding!
Ttesports Poseidon Z RGB Mechanical Blue Switch Keyboard
When Ttesports reached out to us to mod the Poseidon Z RGB Keyboard, I had the perfect idea in mind. What would better match a keyboard with up to 16.8 million colors, then color shift paint. The keyboard was a breeze to disassemble and modify. I really enjoy the blue switches, they give the nice mechanical clicking sound, but retain very little strain on the users hand throughout the day. The software for this keyboard was very easy to use to program the color of the keys, as well as the patterns in which they light up. You can choose one color throughout the color spectrum, let it randomly scroll through the spectrum, or choose from many different affects, all with no programming, just simple key clicks.
If you have been looking for an RGB Mechanical keyboard, don’t delay, head over to the TtBuy Store and pick up yours today!
Thermaltake Suppressor F51 RevoluTtion featured by Intel
This year we set out to meet a few goals, and so far we have successfully accomplished those goals we have set. We have traveled within the United States to Dallas Texas to visit QuakeCon, and also to San Francisco to the Intel Developers Forum. We brought our custom modified computer “RevoluTtion” to enter into the US Case Modding Championship at QuakeCon and were honored to showcase “RevoluTtion” on stage at IDF for Intel’s Mega Gaming Session. While at QuakeCon we took first place with “RevoluTtion” in the US Case Modding Championship. During our visit to the Intel Developers Forum we were honored to display “RevoluTtion” on stage among some of the best case modders creations in the world. Please enjoy our gallery below, with some pictures from both events, as well as some final pictures of “RevoluTtion”, as well as the specifications of this modified computer.
