Some modders around have had extensive experience over with machinery, tools and even highly sensitive equipment such as lasers and even CNC milling machines. The other side of the coin, however, is the design aspect which goes into defining a “mod”. Richard Prins is one such designer who is specialised in CAD and creating vectors for other modders; one his designs was even featured at Computex 2015 in Taipei, Taiwan.
He is of course also a dab hand at modding too and his latest project certainly deserves some attention. It is simply named Project Deadpool with the tagline of “Merc with a mouth”, a clearly noted phrase to which the character Deadpool is widely known (I didn’t know that, but yeah!).
His build is in 2 stages, Stage 1 (Air) and Stage 2 (Water), this is a very interesting concept indeed and we think it looks like a build to watch over the coming months!
Stage 1: Air
Motherboard: Asus Rampage V Extreme
CPU: Intel 5820K
RAM: Avexir Blitz 1.1 DDR4 4x4GB (16GB)
GPU: MSI GTX 980 TI 6G
CPU Cooler: Be Quiet Dark Rock Pro 3
SSD: 2x Samsung 850 series EVO 500GB
Stage 2: Water
This is in addition to a custom made external radiator mount and pump mount.
The motherboard tray is a custom design made by Designs By Richard and milled by Peter Uhrskov Berg. The tray can hold an E-ATX motherboard, two SSD’s in the cutouts on the back and has special cable channels for the 24-pin power and up to four 8-pin GPU power cables. The SSD’s and cable channels will be covered by a clear acrylic cover and the cutout on the left side will be filled with a red piece of acrylic with engraving on it. Together with some other custom parts it will be anodized in black when everything is ready.
