[Sponsored] Timeless Warriors - Samurai themed build COMPLETE

Project – Timeless Warriors

So It Begins.

Personal Intro
Hi all those of you that know me or dont, I have been modding PC's since the year 2000 give or take a few years, I have been inspired over my modding life from modders of past and even some modders of new, I was modding back in the day when we used caravan window rubbers to put case windows into a PC (i know ghetto but we done what we could back then with what we had) I am known across various forums as rchiileea, Richi and Richie123 as well as r1chieB on instagram. I also have the Lucky advantage of having a wife who is very talented and hand engraving images using only dots that create depth which far exceeds my flat images i used to engrave with the trusty old dremel.

So let me introduce you guys to my latest project build that will be crazy mad, inspired by the samurai and will be built into Lian Li DK05x Twin PC desk, (hence the timeless warriors name). This project is going to be a labour of love, not only will it feature a lot of engraving by my wife, there will be also a heavy theme on samurai inside as well as engraved on the outside.

A very very huge thank you to Lian Li for supplying the desk for the project, was honoured to be offered it so thank you.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

Thank you to intel who stepped up again for me to provide CPU’s for this project

As some of you know from previous mods gigabyte have supported me with motherboards on projects so again thanks to them for being involved and helping out.

A big thanks to Toshiba for coming on board on this one too, with not only the OCZ m2 drives but some SSD’s too.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thanks to Razer for supplying the Peripherals for the project



Website/Facebook/Youtube

I would like to say Thank you to Sapphire for stepping up with two cards for second side of rig



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A massive thank you to LG for offering more than I asked for the build, watch this space



Website/Facebook/Youtube

Thank you to bitspower for supplying all the watercooling fittings, pumps and blocks for this.

Dremel need no introduction as they have been around on all my builds from day one.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thank you to TeamGroup as well for supplying the memory for both rigs.



Website/Facebook/Twitter

Of course two rigs are going to need two PSU’s so thank you to Seasonic for stepping up..


Website/Facebook/Twitter


Website/Facebook/Twitter

A massive thanks to the Mayhems team for supplying my custom colour mixes for this project, amazing work as always.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thank you to QNAP for supplying a 10 GBE Nas for the project to handle the external storage side of things



Website/Facebook/Twitter

A huge thank you to The AirbrushCompany for becoming one of my permanent sponsors going forward



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thank you to western digital for supplying some Red drives for the NAS.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thank you to Aqua Tuning who stepped up to supply the crossflow rads.



Website/Facebook/Youtube

A big thank you to Edifier for supplying the sound bar and sub for the desk.


I must say again I have to thank the sponsors BIG TIME on this build for coming on board as it basically means they are supplying double the amount, no pressure to deliver then.


First off here is the case in question.




Looks great, then when it arrived, well it is huge, here is packaging next to my 1 series.




Funnily enough the desk comes in two boxes, one for the feet and one for the desk itself.



This was the lighter of the two boxes, the second box was not so light.




To assemble the case we have to lay the top section on top of the two boxes, then attach the feet.


Once the feet are attached, it’s a case of plugging the power for the adjustable legs in and raising it above the boxes, then lifting it into place (which is not a one man job )


For now that is the start of this build as I have to finalise the design for the engravings on the outside, once I have I will post an image of the plan to give you some idea of what is going to happen to this desk.

so am I and really want to get this done

So another small update and in general, most are going to be quite small until engraving is done, actually got started and so it begins.

I will not review the full design yet, but here is a glimpse of what has been has bee planned



I can not take credit for the engraving as its my wife that does this part, she asked to try and apply dotting as shading one day and let us just say the rest is history on that, I will add more photos as the engraving progresses of course.

You sir have guessed correctly, the only warrior that is timeless is the samurai, been wanting to do one for quite a while now.

Another small update, but this time with a little video, this may show you why dotting shading (that gives depth takes so long).
And of course pictures after a few hours today :O
image001.jpg
image002.jpg

So a very long way to go still to fill up the two sides, on a plus note, it’s the wifes skills this dotting lark I have not got the patience for it and she well is the master in my honest opinion. On a plus note, should have confirmation of a few bits, then quite a bit coming in so I can actually start working on the insides J as I will have products to measure wink.gif before making custom pieces J.

Another update for you guys, first showing you some stuff that turned up for the build.

First up the PSU’s, yes you did read that right as desk will be housing two rigs, it also need 2x PSU’s.

Seasonic stepped up here and provided 2x 1000w prime Titanium PSU’s for the build, solid and reliable power. Ill add some more photos of items when opened.
Next up was the gift from intel and very lucky gift indeed, it had me made up.


So both rigs will have almost identical processing power for this build, going to be a long ride I am thinking at the end with final pics and videos.

And last of course and not least, before we go of course a little update on the cherry blossom flower shown in previous post being finished.

Only 5 of these left to go and onto the main imagery after that, but going on this alone it’s going to all look amazing when put together.

Until the next update guys
