    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 Ultimate Personal Computers!





    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!

      Antec is a very interesting case choice. Kind of excited to see what you end up doing with it.

        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!

              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!

                    When we left off with Project Lake Effect, we had just finished test-fitting the majority of our components into the chassis. With that out of the way, the Antec case is being broken down and prepared for paint.

                    While our case is being worked on, Joe has installed an Aquacomput​er Kryogra​phics ​waterblock onto our Nvidia GTX 980. Over the years we've gotten a lot of questions about how to properly install a GPU waterblock. Even though we're certain 99% of you already know this stuff, we figured we would make a step by step "How to" video describing the GPU block installation process for the select few who may not have dealt with a GPU block installation.

                    You can check out Joe's sultry facial hair and GPU block installation skills below!



















                    Stay tuned for more updates from Project Lake Effect. In our next video we will be modifying our side panel with a plexiglass window!

                        Alright but seriously this project took far longer than it ever should have partly due to you guys ordering so many things from us and partially from us not working on it. Thanks for sticking with us throughout the entire project, we promise that the next one really won't take this long.

                        Probably....

                        Thank you to all of our sponsors for making this incredible work of water-cooled art a reality!

                        You can check out a full parts list, list of our sponsors and more below!

                        Also make sure to check out to start building your own one of a kind water cooled PC!
