ZADAK and NVIDIA Team up at Taipei Game Show 2019, Showcase Pip-Boy(Fallout 76) Scratch Build by AK Taipei, Taiwan. January 24th 2019 - ZADAK, in association with NVIDIA Taiwan, wowed visitors at the opening of the Taipei Game Show 2019, presenting a scratch build from up and coming Taiwanese modder AK. Inspired by the popular Fallout® 76 PC game, the Pip-Boy mod is composed of leather, aluminum and 3D-printed acrylics. It marks the first collaboration between ZADAK and NVIDIA Taiwan, showcasing the flagship MAOB II Water-cooled PC from ZADAK, and the latest NVIDIA® GeForce® RTX 2080 Ti gaming graphics card. The scratch build is AK’s take on the Pip-Boy® 2000 Mark VI, with ZADAK hardware taking the place of the screen. Just like the real thing, it features twistable knobs, leather detailing, exposed wiring and vacuum tubing. “I feel honored to be invited by NVIDIA Taiwan and ZADAK to attempt this kind of custom modding project, especially as NVIDIA and ZADAK are two of my favorite brands,” commented AK. “I chose the Fallout 76 theme as Pip-Boy is instantly recognizable to gamers and the MOAB II PC case fits the Mark VI concept perfectly.” The MOAB II is a remarkable piece of craftsmanship from the ZADAK team by a like-minded group of engineers, designers, and modders to offer gaming enthusiasts a custom-built PC experience. Dubbed the Mother of All Bombs, the water-cooled PC cleverly removes the need for pesky hardline tubing by using an inner aluminum structure and water distribution plate to rapidly circulate the coolant, effectively acting as a giant heatsink. Gone are the days of cracked, leaking tubes and fiddly tube-bending with the MOAB II. A built-in, real-time display allows users to keep close tabs on water temperature and voltages - a must when you’re dealing with high-performance hardware like the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 Ti and Intel® Core™ i7 9900k CPU. Smooth operation is ensured by a specially developed 240mm radiator and the innovative MOAB M.2 RGB heat spreader which combines two types of aluminum finishes to provide fantastic heat dissipation. Combined with the ZADAK SHIELD RGB DDR4 3200MHz 16GB memory modules, this unique build offers blistering performance on hardcore games such as Fallout 76. PC Modding: Where Passion and Performance Meet Although the compact design of the MOAB II lends itself perfectly to AK’s mission, modding the case was a painstaking and time-intensive process that presented him with several new challenges. “It was my first time using 3D printing to make key elements of the Pip-Boy mod. Each of the 20 3D components took between 15 to 23 hours to print, plus the long time it takes to smooth out the prints using epoxy resin. Polishing required an additional two weeks, the painting took several layers, then finishing off with an oxidized metal finish to create a special ageing effect. I had to be incredibly patient. I also created the accessories with iron netting, leather and vacuumed lightbulbs, which I custom-made, which took a further week or so. Taking into account UV printing and acrylic laser cutting, the project took me around 6 weeks to accomplish in total.” AK’s efforts certainly paid off and his scratch build was warmly received by both NVIDIA Taiwan and ZADAK. “We are very thrilled that we invited AK and ZADAK to join the scratch build project for TGS 2019,” commented Stanley Chen, NVIDIA Senior Sales Manager (Taiwan). “We spare no efforts to make PC modding more popular here in Taiwan so that we can all join this kind of modding feast." Erin Chou, Marketing Manager at ZADAK added, "We are honored to be invited by NVIDIA Taiwan to participate at the Taipei Game Show. It is a privilege to work with this leading brand, and talented local modder AK. As a high-end water cooling PC brand, here at ZADAK we pride ourselves on to making products modding, PC enthusiasts can enjoy. We really feel that AK has encapsulated the spirit of our brand with this fantastically on-the-mark scratch build."

2018 SHIELD II WATER COOLED PC Wall Mounted & Desktop Computer Taipei, Taiwan – 12th Nov 2018 – ZADAK is thrilled to announce the whole new custom water cooling system, SHIELD II Water Cooled PC. Starting in 2015 ZADAK first dipped our toes into custom computers that were built for modding competition displays. In late 2017 ZADAK decided to mass produce our first fully water-cooled PC known as MOAB I. MOAB I managed to push boundaries within the industry and get us excited to start work on the successor MOAB II Water Cooled PC. These two smallest custom water-cooled PCs gained attention from enthusiasts around the world along with ZADAK’s other products. MOAB I & II were very successful but we wanted to seize the opportunity to make another custom water-cooled computer that harness the latest hardware recently released. SHIELD II will be released in mid November. DESKTOP AS WELL AS WALL MOUNTED PC THE THINNEST WATER-COOLED PC EVER Over the years ZADAK has spent a lot of time listening to what our customers want while taking the opportunity to push innovative ideas even further. SHIELD II is the culmination of just that. Having options is what the custom tech industry is all about. SHIELD II can be mounted on a desktop but it also has the capability to be wall mounted so that you can display this piece of art. We did not forget about portability either; the top arc doubles as a handle to make travel simple. We have created the thinnest custom water-cooled PC and it still packs all the power of a full sized computer. This makes it perfect to take to LAN events and fit into almost any environment. PATENTED WATER DISTRIBUTION PLATE The largest concern with any water-cooled PC is possible damage during transport. The weakest spot of any water-cooled PC is the fittings and tubing. ZADAK took this into consideration; we built an entire water distribution plate which drastically lowered the amount of tubing and fittings needed. This virtually eliminates the possibilities of cracks. The water distribution plate is a key factor that allows us to make the SHIELD II so thin, efficient and portable. POWERFUL HARDWARE SUPERIOR PERFORMANCE We spared no expense when selecting the hardware used in SHIELD II. An ASUS ROG MAXIMUS XI GENE motherboard serves as a fantastic platform for the top end hardware that powers the SHIELD II PC. We teamed that up with the latest Intel i7 9700K CPU, RTX 2080Ti graphics card, Samsung EVO NVME SSD and of course our ZADAK SHIELD RGB 3000MHz DDR4. In order to keep all that hardware happy and cool we added a custom 360mm radiator that was designed with SHIELD II in mind. It has excellent heat dissipation performance even while running the most demanding games and applications. SHIELD II was CNC milled out of solid aluminum which greatly helps with heat dissipation. The entire structure acts as a large heat sink. INTELLIGENT DESIGN WITH RGB LIGHTING CAPACITIVE STRIP & DIGITAL DISPLAY A digital display shows real-time water temperature which allows the users to monitor the status of the PC. The capacitive touch screen strip allows users to power on/ off the PC. All it takes is finger slide to the left to power on, and slide it again to power off. No custom PC would be complete without RGB LEDs that can be used to fully customize the user experience. ZADAK wants to take this a step further by adding digital addressable RGB LEDs that can be used to create all kinds of new lighting effects. ZADAK’s hardware is going to be available to a large portion of the world very soon. We have had an enormous amount of requests for this so it's now time. We are very excited about the release of SHIELD II. It embodies what we are all about at ZADAK and we cannot wait to see end users start experiencing the amazing amount of ingenuity that we have instilled in each unit.
