It has been a long time since I want to make something at the back side panel. Oh sorry, not at the panel. Let's remove the panel and doing something at the back side of the case... I am looking for a nice movement at the back side of the case. maybe a flow of water? or maybe a rotating parts? or maybe a pneumatic controlled piston? .... Then it is decided! Gear it is!!! I started my work log with short appreciation notes. First and foremost, huge gratitude to my wife for tremendous support from day 1. Cannot complete this without her support . Thanks a lot to Cooler Master for sponsoring me the CM Trooper SE Case for this project. Cooler Master is also helping me out by giving me AIO cooler, Vertical GPU Holder, RGB Fans and many moreee... For the 3D design, I am sending my huge thanks to the awesome designer Snille from Thingiverse which helps me a lot on the gear design. Check out his awesome design at Thingiverse. Last but not least, thanks a LOT to Goldfries and ASUS for supporting me all the way in term of hardware and coverage!!! OKAY, LET'S DO THIS! The hardware that I am using for this project are mostly from my personal Computer except Cooler Master parts as Cooler Master is being so generous in Modding Scene. Cannot thanked them enough. CPU: Intel Pentium G4400 Motherboard: Asus Z170-P D3 GPU: Asus RTX 2080 8GB Turbo Ram: 2x 8GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3L PSU: Cooler Master V1200 Platinum Cooler: Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L RGB Fans: Cooler Master 140mm RGB Fans Case: Cooler Master Trooper SE This is the boyy~ Cooler Master Trooper SE! Gigantic, Majestic, yet easy to handle and to lift it.
CORE COMPONENT SELECTION Motherboard I'm choosing the ASRock X470 Taichi because the gear on the chipset cover match the clockwork theme. RAM As for the RAM I changed my mind and get 4 stick of Dominator Platinum RGB because of the stealth looks on the heatsink better than White Vengeance RGB Pro. REPAINTING THE WATER COOLING PART Waterblock I'm using EK Supremacy Evo Full Nickel with AM4 Upgrade Kit and decided to repaint the waterblock with copper paint and did a little bit black overspray so it looks like dirty then I add a thin layer of light scarlet and then light mask of copper again. After I finished with painting I lightly sand the surface with 1000 and 1200 grit sandpaper to smoothen the surface and add 3 thin clear spray. I also repaint the backplate with black. Radiator For the radiator I'm using Thermaltake radiator and mask the fin stack because I want them black and I only paint the radiator with copper paint because I haven't decided what kind of modification that I'm going to put on the front area and that's because I'm still waiting for the case to arrive. Fittings For the fittings I use Thermaltake fittings and did the same thing as I did on the CPU Block. COOLER MASTER PART SELECTION For the Cooler Master part that going in to this build is: Case I choose H500P Mesh because of the futuristic looks on the outside of the case. Power Supply I'm going to go with the V750 gold because it has 2 eps power cable and that going to fill the 8+4 eps power slot on the motherboard. Case Fan MF120R on the top of the case should be enough to light my case with the RGB.
