Hello everybody!! Thank you for taking the time to read my mod log for the 570X by Corsair! The name "XV" comes from the roman numeral 15, as this is my 15th major project since I started modded 3 years ago. This mod is for Corsair's modding competition, which I am honoured to be part of. We are 10 modders selected from around the globe to compete for a prize (Which I do not know of time of writing this) and also for the bragging rights to say who is the best modder out there :) Specifications: Chassis - Corsair 570X CPU - 5820K Motherboard - Gigabyte X99 Designare SSD - Corsair Force LE 256GB PSU - Corsair HX1200 RAM - Corsair Vengeance White LED DDR4 32GB (4x8GB) GPU - Gigabyte GTX1070 G1 Gaming Fans - Corsair HD120 3pack with Controller Cooling - Custom water loop Plans: My plans are pretty simple with this chassis. I plan to paint the inside of the chassis white or light grey so that the RGB fans have a greater effect within in the chassis. I will replace so of the inside with custom aluminium brushed panels for structure and aesthetics, and also extend the PSU shroud the entire length of the bottom tray. If time permits, I will install a custom water cooling loop with unique layout inside the chassis. On the outside of the chassis, I wish to fabricate custom aluminium panels with a unique design which will sit outside, giving a futuristic look and feel. This project will only take a few weeks to complete, so there might be some compromise on what I wish to do compared to the time that I have to work on this project. After all I am a father of two kids under 3 years old and have a full time job ;) :D So I hope that you stick around, and I will post up some photos as soon as I get them from the camera, haha. Take care guys, and see you all at the next update. Kind regards, Justin / MetallicAcid
