Hello everyone! now it's time for me to share the worklog of my latest build. The Titanium S.

This is a collaboration work with my friend Ejay Bosquit where he is my first client. He really requested that I should build him a special modded rig and since he agreed that I will void every warranty of the parts that he will buy and I'm the one who will be deciding the entire look of the build, so I said "Yes! Let's build it."

I let Ejay choose which hardware he will buy and use for this build since he has the budget to do so and basically he is the financer of this build. And on the modding and design part, that would be my responsibility.

So let's start.

First, I wanted to create a new Flagship for my Titanium family. And this will be perfect. It has no theme like the Titanium, just pure freedom.

But this time it will be better. Better 90degree motherboard tray conversion, unique color theme, better layout and sexier look.

That's why I called it Titanium "S". Because for some reason it's Special, Sporty, Sexy and and it's about Speed.

Spec List:

Rampage IV Extreme (in Black)
Intel Core i7 3970X
Cooler Master Cosmos II
Corsair 16Gb 2400MHz DDR3
EK Waterblocks
2x Aqua Computer AirPlex 420 Radiators with Corsair AF140
4x GTX780 Reference with EKWB
EVGA Supernova 1500w PSU
Samsung 840 PRO 250GB in RAID0
Custom Copper Tubes (yes, that is copper tubing!)
Rotated motherboard mounting
Relocated PSU mounting
FTW sleeving

So let's start modding!!!

I started, by murdering the Cosmos 2 Chassis by removing the center panel and converting the mobo tray to 90deg.

now for the mounting of the front 420 RAD

at first this mounting was quite easy.

But the problem is, according to Aquacomputer we cannot mount the rad that way because it will cause big problems to the pump. So we decided to mount it the other way.


So I created a plate to hold the RAD.

After rotating the motherboard tray some modifications were needed.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-c-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-ash3/64700_10151576546283424_175135416_n.jpg

We will be placing a 2nd 420 Rad on the rear part so I decided to relocate the PSU in the middle of the chassis.

https://fbcdn-sphotos-d-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-prn1/67636_10151576546503424_1990619523_n.jpg

Now I noticed that after removing the middle plate on the Cosmos 2 the chassis started getting weak. So I decided to do some reinforcements for the chassis.

this is like the Rolls Royce of computers! extremely nice job, especially like the fact you used yellow theme - good to see someone being different :D. Pipe work is spot on too, really impressive, whats the black coating on the pipes?

I would love to see this done in red so you can use NF-A14 PWM (http://noctua.at/main.php?show=productview&products_id=65&lng=en) fans from Noctua. It would be a nearly quieter than the AF140s.
