  1. I ended up removing posts promoting my CMWS entry from social media because the links were taking people to the wrong project This is the link to my project: https://community.coolermaster.com/cmws/cmws-vote/?contest=photo-detail&photo_id=4148 When I add this link to facebook, the social media platform adds tracking to the beginning and end of the URL, which makes it resolve to the incorrect page: https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fcommunity.coolermaster.com%2Fcmws%2Fcmws-vote%2F%3Fcontest%3Dphoto-detail%26photo_id%3D4148%26fbclid%3DIwAR3GCYVcW7
  2. Regarding the IP Address Error: Not sure there is anything you can do about the voting error, if someone already voted from your location. Try using a different network, if you are at home try at work, if you are at work try at home, try voting on your phone without wifi, or try using a public wifi. You just need to be connected to a different network. Regarding the links going to the wrong project: I did also notice that my link when used in social media, facebook specifically, lands people on someone else's entry page and not mine, which is very frustrating.

  4. I love this project, so unusual, creative, and the craftsmanship is superb, well done
  5. HYDROPOWER Final Pictures 4 Cooler Master SickleFlow RGB PWM Fans were used on the radiator in push/pull configuration. Corresponding Peripherals Mod located here.
  6. The Control Board Cooler Master Item List ControlPad MM830 Mouse MP510 Mousepad This project began with a 12 inch X 22 inch X .25 inch (30 cm X 55 cm X 6 mm) sheet of solid aluminum. The sheet was then off to the CNC Shop where an area was carved out the exact shape of the mousepad, .125 inch (3 mm) deep, or about half the thickness of the aluminum sheet. Both the ControlPad and MM830 Mouse that will reside on the Control Board are
  7. The Sound Module Cooler Master Item List SGH-4700-KKTA1 MasterPulse Headset This headset already matched the look and feel of the mod perfectly, so I decided to add some of the mesh that I used throughout the mod, so that it would come together with the customizations found in all of the other pieces that are a part of the HYDROPOWER Mod. The one thing that all the pieces have in common is the use of the metal mesh. The mesh was used throughout the project in the following areas
  8. The Graphical Display Unit Cooler Master Item List GM27-CF Monitor I had always wanted to try a monitor mod, but I didn't want to simply add decorations around the screen or on the stock monitor stand. I wanted to build something that would not only compliment the custom mod it would be next to, I wanted it to be something of equal complexity and caliber. So I decided to build another chassis, just like the one that was built for the HYDROPOWER Mod that holds up the PC Components, but this one would hold up the monitor, a matching s
  9. PCIe Riser Cable + The Mesh One of my favorite things about this mod is the PCIe Riser Cable. I really didn't like how it looked when I first plugged it in, so decided to turn an eye-sore into a focal point. I know it's a simple thing, but as a modder, this is one of the items I am most proud of in this mod, as I have never seen anyone else mod the PCIe Riser Cable and I feel it makes a huge difference in the look of the components. I used metal mesh throughout the mod that I purchased from an old farm sale. I wanted to have the materials I used be prevalent
  10. Custom PSU Wires I hand-made all of the wiring in this mod, and about 200 Feet (61 Meters) of wire was used in total. I wanted the wiring to keep with the retro industrial theme, and because of this I chose to use yellow and black striped wire, and expose it in a controlled manner throughout the mod. This being an open-air chassis, wire management was one of the most challenging aspects of this project.
