    We at ModMyMods are happy to announce the start of our foremost custom PC build in collaboration with J&N Computer Services.
    With all of our collective PC Modding experience we are anxious to show our newest custom build. We will be using the Antec P380 PC chassis as a base for the build, upon which we will demonstrate a few of the different custom services and products that we offer. These services include powder-coating, hydro-dipping, full water cooling and more! Big thanks to several generous sponsors who have made this project possible, including Antec, EVGA, Gigabyte, Intel, Kingston, Mayhems, Darkside, Alphacool, MNPCtech and UPC!

    We will be documenting the entire build and mod process and will be posting updates to our build log as we go.
    Stay tuned for more updates and information as we progress through the build!
    Below you can find a list of components and parts that we will be using for this system!

    Lake Effect Update Part 2: Antec P380 Overview with Radiator & Drain-Port Installation

    We've recently been working on Project Lake Effect and wanted to give you all an update to see what we've been up to.

    In the video below you will see Joe break down some of the features of the P380 and make some small modifications.

    With the successful installation of the two radiators, we can begin preparing the chassis for paint and hydro dipping!

    Stay tuned for more build updates in the near future!

      Update Time! Joe made a video and you should totally watch it.

      Watch as Joe shows off some cable management, points at things, drills some holes and installs the Barrow Tube Reservoir/Pump combo into the chassis! We're always happy to show off some of the mods we have in store for this build and we can't wait to get some of the more exciting mods underway!

      With our two radiators seated nicely into our case and linked, we sleeved and mounted our Gentle Typhoon 1800RPM fans.

      The lovely folks at Ultimate Personal Computers were nice enough to sleeve all of our internal power cables giving our project it's black and white theme that we love so much. We think they did a great job so be sure to check them out!

      Today Joe installed a Barrow Pump/Reservoir Combo unit into the chassis. In the coming weeks we're going to be getting the case ready for hydro-dipping and powder-coating.

      By drilling just a few holes in the bottom of the Antec next to the PSU, we were able to mount our Barrow Reservoir in a prominent and easily accessible position that is out of the way of other major components!

      Stay tuned for more updates as Project Lake Effect progresses! Up next we're giving you a "How To" guide on graphic's card installation, plexi window installation and much more!
