Hi!

We are returning with our next mod. For today, we show you some of the Corsair goodies we will
use and transform to make our new mod, called "Ancient Corsair". Without further ado, here are
some pictures of the hardwares we going to use in our mod:

Corsair fans along with an AX 860i PSU and H115i cooling:

In terms of storage we'll work with the Corsair Neutron XT 480:

For memory, we have 4x4GB of 3200MHz Dominator memory with some colorful extras:

For the case, we have a really spaceous, kind of "modder's dream" case, the Corsair 900D:

The other main components you can't see here will be coming soon!
The final concept and layout is being finalized soon.

Regards, BaluC & Soccer
Title: Re: [MSI PRO MOD - S4] Ancient Corsair - Update and concept
Post by: userip01 on 14-June-16, 18:06:01
We'd like to share the concept, it will most likely be formed along the way, but the main concept is a long time relic, crashed to earth ancient pirate ship, a Corsair.
Some additions and new ideas will be added alongside the way to the RGB lighting features, but the main concept will remain the same.

The MSI motherboard and VGA is on the way, as soon as we get our hands on them we will post them.

Some detail work, and lot RGB leds, to match the theme of the MSI Pro Mod S04! :D
As you can see on the first render pictures, RED was the original plan, but it turned out great. Can be set to any mood / game :D
