Black Diamond by Hanshin - Crystal 570X RGB Mod


Recommended Posts

Hi!

 

It's been a while since my last project!

 

Having moved back to France after 10 wonderful years in Japan, it's time now to do another build. :D

No scratchbuild this time like I did with the Hikari Project. My project will be based on the new Corsair case, the 570X RGB.

Big thanks to all the sponsors of Black Diamond: Corsair, Aquacomputer, CableMod and Silicon Lottery.

 

Here are the specs of this build:

 

- CPU: i7 7700K binned and delidded by Silicon Lottery

- Motherboard: TBA

- RAM: Corsair Dominator Platinum DDR4

- PSU: Corsair AX1200i

- GPU: Nvidia Titan X (Pascal)

- SSD: 2x Corsair Neutron XTi

- Case: Corsair 570X RGB

- Sleeved cables by CableMod

 

The CPU and GPU will be watercooled, thanks to Aquacomputer.

 

This time again, I'm aiming for a simple but classy look. I hope you will enjoy the trip!

 

Recently, I received some packages. Here is a little preview, more to come soon!

The measurements I made might not work for you, but I'll give them to you once I receive the cables and I can confirm I didn't make a mistake. :p:

 

I received some packages since last time.

 

Thank you Corsair for the support!

So gorgeous RAM! But it's time to make it fit the theme. After some paint coats later:

I started working on the case too, but you will have to wait a little more. :D

More than a year after, Black Diamond project is back!

 

To be quick, all progress has been lost (except some parts I could save) but with the help of Corsair, project is on rails again.

It was the occasion to rethink some aspects of the project.

 

Let's start with the case, the beautiful 570X RGB Mirror Black Edition!
