Bizmarck by Kojak

Project Log: Here
Ship-themed projects are few and far between but forum user Kojak has used one of the most prominent of sea-going vessels as the inspiration for his project. Germany's WWII battleship, the Bismarck, gave play to one of the most exciting and deadly battles ever to grace the North Atlantic (if you're not adverse to black and white films, 'Sink the Bismarck!' would make for an excellent lazy afternoon nearer Christmas).

Back to Kojak's project though, and perhaps the most striking similarity between the ship that lays at the bottom of the Atlantic and the PC that sits next to Kojak, is that both were huge powerhouses. Being based around a Corsair Obsidian 800D case and using an EVGA SR-2 motherboard, Bismarck is already a beast of a PC

The project began in July when we were treated to some very interesting renders of an extended Obsidian 800D. Inside appeared to be some hefty water-cooling hardware including two large radiators with other renders also showing two pumps and two reservoirs.

To cool the monstrous SR-2 motherboard, Kojak invested in a Koolance full-cover waterblock which he's managed to illuminate. We want one. Also on show is a huge custom motherboard backplate.

The size of the SR-2 is clear in this photo, taking up a lot of space on the huge backplate which is itself, a good 30 per cent bigger than the one removed from the Obsidian 800D.

Above we can see some more hardware fitted to the backplate, including a triple 120mm-fan radiator which sits neatly at the bottom of the case in a section which has been cut out. Kojak is also making some soundproofed hard disk cages using parts from the original ones.

Bismarck looks set to be a stonking mod and if you'd like to vote for Kojak's creation, head to the forums.
