    Predefinito ASRock M8K




    Hello members and friends of our great mod community.

    Here the beginning of my attempt to do some nice things to a great system: A beautiful ASRock Z97 M8. The challenge is to transform it into a barebone mod with water cooling.

    When ASRock contacted me and asked me the question "do you see potential in modding this one" I couldn't say no off course. Then they did me an offer to actually do this, when I said I wanted to put this one under water

    Big thanks goes out for this beautiful deal to Red Hung "ASRock HQ" and Peter "ASRock Benelux"



    Also big thanks to Niko and Peter from EKWB



    And big thanks goes to Harry from Corsair



    It all started with the ASRock box that was delivered at work and was transported safely by me to the MbK modcave.



    First unboxing on the dining table



    And a great case emerged designed by BMW Group DesignworksUSA



    The M8 is sold as a barebone system, which only includes a chassis, power supply, mini-ITX motherboard, fans and optical disk drive.

    - Intel« Z97 Motherboard Inside
    - Supports 5th, New 4th and 4th Gen Intel« Core Processors
    - A-Command with G-sensor integrated
    - Creative SoundCore 3D 7.1 CH HD Audio with Nichicon Fine Gold Audio Caps
    - 2T2R WiFi 802.11ac + Bluetooth 4.0
    - SFX 600W 80 Plus Gold Power Supply
    - XSplit 3 Months Premium License
    - ASRock Cloud, ASRock Key Master


    Nice specs:



    And time to open the small beast Rear side is already great



    The front and quickly installed a GTX780 TITAN... see if it fits



    Perfect!!! And still space left





    Beautiful semi-modular 600W power supply in it



    Then it was time to disassemble everything



    Good overview at the heart of the M8... The Z97-M8













    Looks good!!!

    It's possible to install a total of 5 SSDs, or 1x 3.5 "HDD and 4 Pcs 2.5".
    In this one will come 4 SSDs





    After a night of brainstorming I decided to go up. For this I've used aluminum tubes with acrylic tubes and made a bracket in the middle. And not to forget placed some custom sized acrylic plates.





    Also used some Banchetto rubber feet.





    And there it is!!!





    To be continued!!!

    Thanks guys, you make a modder feel like at home for sure. Appreciate it very much




    Update!!!







    First of all, a few nice shots of a new CPU block from EKWB: The EK-Supremacy EVO

    A very nice block onto a not too big mobo looks like a full cover block, so saves money !!!







    Looking for the right color regarding the bars: Titanium gray or glossy red





    What do you guys think?



    Remember there will be rigid tubing, with red liquid (no pastel this time) in it.

    I was also trying some stuff with a custom cover for the section beneath and in this an aquatube....



    But don't like this. So delete!!! Bottom remains open now, with all the WC stuff in sight.



    I did drilled some holes in the aquatube to place red LEDs. What gives a pretty nice effect.



    Finally I want the PSU turned the other way for future ideas

    Original position:



    Made a custom plate which is mounted onto the bracket for the optical drive.



    Turned the PSU, made another bracket to secure the PSU.



    More to come!!!
