Exsectus was designed and built for Thermaltake's 2016 UK Modding Trophy competition. It's a heavily modified Thermaltake Core X31 chassis fitted with a custom CNC machined manifold that incorporates all the main internal components.
Exsectus placed first in the competition.
In August 2015 I was contacted by AMD with the view to designing a case from scratch that could show off their latest graphics card, the R9 Nano.
Aetos is a one of a kind design that really pushed my CAD skills thanks to the organic shaping. The exterior chassis was 3D printed whilst the interior frame was CNC machined from acetal.
My current work in progress personal rig. UK based case manufacturer Parvum Systems approached me with the idea of trying to design the ultimate LAN show rig. Big budgets, big parts and big exposure are the name of the game with this project.
Parts were kindly provided by Nvidia, Asus, Superflower, Hexagon PCs and of course Parvum Systems.
Moderne is a case designed for the 2014/15 Intel/Bit-Tech NUC competition. It was one of the 5 final designs picked to be turned into reality.
The whole case is 3D printed using SLS Nylon, with smoked acrylic windows that act as status lights, letting you know whether the system is on or not. Inspired by the modernist streamliner trains and cars of the 1930s, I tried to make sure there were no external buttons or distractions. Instead, the front is touch sensitive, so you control the system with the swipe of a finger.
Loramentum was my first foray into CNC machining as a method of case manufacture. The principle behind the build was to have a wall mountable, watercooled yet portable system. The whole build fits neatly into a custom flightcase for easy transport to LANs or conventions.
The chassis itself is machined from 2 layers of 10mm acrylic, the watercooling system is incorporated into the frame itself. Loramentum went on to win Mod of the Month on Bit-Tech, Overclock.net and Linus Tech Tips along with a Mod of the Year nomination on Bit-Tech.
EKWB kindly provided the watercooling parts for this build, Intel provided the i7 4770k.
This was a system I built for my brother and his architectural studies. The main draw was trying to get everything as clean and neat as possible without modding too many of the original components
Vesper was my first foray into the world of 3D printing and scratchbuilt computer cases. Vesper was designed for the Bit-Tech/Intel "Design a NUC" competition, the premise being to design a case that showed off the capabilities of the tiny platform. Vesper ended up placing first and later went on to be nominated for Mod of the Year and used in Intel's #3DNext social media campaign.
