  1. Hello, finally, after a Year of no CMWS, In this CMWS22 we meet again. my name is Dony . I come from Indonesia. in the world of PC modification, I am better known as Dony Daguar. This is my 3rd time participating in this CMWS, and the first time I want to try competing in the Scratch Build class. In this CMWS22, I will take the theme of sci-fi modification and adapt it to my technical semiotics, i.e. reviving the world's first Tank and first remote army equipment , for action and re-adaptation in the future. I will present the design of the British Mark I tank combined with the world's first military combat drone, SD. KFZ 302 "GOLIATH" . Featured not explicitly, but in abstraction style and acrobatic 3D geometry puzzles. For the design of this 3D puzzle, I was very inspired by one of the children's toys produced by Wooden Tricks. For this modified PC, I named it DAEDRANOID. Philosophically, this name is taken from an entity that has the nature of "cannot be killed but can only be thrown away." An anthropomorphic name is appropriate to its maker. There are too many things that inspire me in CMWS22 this time, and this makes it difficult for me to make the initial sketch. All these ideas just hang around in my brain and change almost every moment. Maybe because I can't put my ideas on paper For workmanship and manufacturing techniques, I still use the method I used last year, because I think there is still a lot to explore. The modification work this time I still haven't used a 3D printer. because the design made does not need the help of the printer. Finally, my hope is to get the best out of this competition. And to all CMWS22 participants, "I am proud to compete with all of you" Good luck all
  2. Hi all. I’m so happy to be a part of the event. It’s exactly what I have been searching for. Im kicking myself I only discovered the the comp on the 12th of December. This is my first scratch build and entry to an event like the case mod World Series so please forgive the lack of pictures on my projects timeline as I am not on social media other than a personal Facebook. My creation is what I name Goliath, Project: The Alpha Aorus (Alphacool/ Aorus build) The parts I am using are Aorus X570 Xtreme motherboard AMD Ryzen 5900x Aorus 4400hmz 16gb Ram Aorus 1TB Gen 4 NVMe, Full Copper Aorus 850w Gold power supply Aorus 6800 master (if I can’t find a card for my waterblock) 4 X Aerocool Duo pro 200mm 6x Aerocool Edge pro 120mm Alphacool 1260mm NeXxos Supernova full copper radiator Alphacool Eisball with Vp755 pump Alphacool Eisbaer Solo Modular CPU cooler/pump combo 5m of ARGB cable, and a Coolermaster ARGB strip to finish off below the motherboard. and secret Coolermaster back of motherboard cooler (read on to find out more, and remember you saw it here first ) Goliath has been in development for around 2 years now and is very close to completion (I prey this doesn’t exclude me from the comp if you read further I have a very valid excuse on why this has taken me longer than usual I have only really began fabrication around September this year). It has taken an extensive amount of planning and trialing to come up with a design I was happy to move forward with into the fabrication phase. The inspiration for Goliath comes from seeing performance builds using multiple rads in awkward arrangement to achieve the cooling desired. I wanted to invent a design that used one large efficient radiator over many small rads. By having one large rad it reduces the hose fittings down to 2 which in my mind is optimal as it reduces possible failure points. With the sheer size of the full copper radiator the systems fans can operate at zero or low RPM and rely solely on passive cooling which greatly increases efficiency and fan lifespan. Goliaths chassis is entirely fabricated from mild steel RHS (Rectangular hollow section), SHS, (square hollow section) and plate steel varying between 2-3mm thickness. The chassis is fully welded and is a single piece no fixings are used. The thickness of the steel is by design. Built into the case at its base is a keyed locker armoured by 3mm plate steel. All the materials are salvaged workshop scraps from my old workplace so the expense on steel is $0. The most expensive part of the process has been buying all the required tools for the job as i no longer have workshop access Eg grinding discs, drill bits, taps, welding supplies ect. No longer having workshop access that I am used to was a big hinderance so I have been working from my car garage and have setup a clean room in our spare room. This project has taken over our house at several points lol. All the cables for the PC components are routed though either the hidden port in the base or out through the back door. The Locker also protects the switch to the PC power button as well as the ON/OFF switch for the PC itself, this means you can lock your Pc, walk away feeling confident it’s secure and unusable while you are away. The locker protects any additional hardrives and SSDs securing them behind lock and key. The motherboard mount is heavily bolted in front of a Alphacool 1260mm NeXxos supernova and inside houses the power supply, cables from Mobo and fan hubs. The motherboard then becomes the faceplate for the mounting bracket. 4x200mm Aerocool Duo200 are pushing and 6 Aerocool Edge pros pull air and ventilate the hardware cavity, the power supply is also positioned to pull air through the radiator acting as a 7th fan. The approximate Volume of Goliaths case is around 110L. Goliath is 100% my own work. From design, fabricating the chassis, learning to cut and drill glass, through to painting I can honestly say painting has been an absolute nightmare. Due to the nature of silver and chrome paints being very finicky and the showing the slightest imperfections. My latest work has been adding the framing for the four 6mm glass panels that are affixed with security bolts as well as modifying the front plate to suit a 10.1inch LCD that runs as a monitor by HDMI, I run AIDA 64 extreme as a metrics display. I use all Aorus hardware because I just love their customer support and quality products. for lighting affects I have used 5m of generic ARGB cable and a Coolermaster ARGB strip to finish off under the motherboard. How it all came to be. WARNING graphic Well here goes. I have bounced around a lot in my life learning all kinds of manual skills and experience. I was finally in a place in life I was truly happy. I was 3rd year into a fabrication of engineering apprenticeship. I have a way with metal so it was more off a dream than a job for me. My wife was starting her career in sport and exercise science. Our little daughter Valkyrie was about to turn two and she was shocking people with her gifted talents from a young age. life seemed perfect for once until July 22nd 2020 our daughter Valkyrie had a tragic drowning accident. She went 16mins without oxygen to the brain despite our CPR efforts in other words she was deceased for that time. The accident left Valkyrie with an extreme hypoxic brain injury. I wont describe how much this event broke my entire family. I went through a legitimate mental breakdown and to try pull myself through I turned to gaming. I could no longer work as I cared for my daughter and was by her side every minute going days on end without sleep making sure she was comforted in every way. I purchased my first second hand PC so I could play the same games as my childhood friend who helped me through the worst of it. From that point I was hooked on modifying and messing with the setup. Breaking things and making bad decisions I learnt quickly what not to do. I was very happy to discover this was a manual task I could do quietly through the night as I took night caring and my wife did days. I sorely missed my job as a fabricator and realised my tools were going to waste, so I sold them on and invested in PC hardware and tools more suited to the task. I invested in premium parts from Alphacool which cost an arm and a leg to ship to Australia but I don’t like to compromise. This began the creation of Goliath which has slowly grown over the last two years from an idea through to today as I have used it as a distraction from very gloomy thoughts. I hope to kickstart a company in the new year called Armoured Core Customs that’s focus is supplying PC chassis like Goliath and modification. Thanks for reading. I look forward to sharing my progress.
  3. Here we are, for me it's the second time here, the first time was with Da Module Thingy, this time I will join the fray with Piñasphere, my first 3D printed PC Case. Had to learn a lot about 3D modeling before getting serious with it, the project took about 3-4 months from February to May 2022. I wanted to experiment how far I could get with the design of a Computer case, from the standard that people picture in their mind when you talk about a PC, a boxy shape, beside very few exceptions most computer cases are based on a squared shape be it a closed or open air design. It is asymmetric, because I love the movement given by the change in the lines, now it's more like a functional desk sculpture. Even though it is watercooled, it is rather small 218mm for 168mm about 4 litres, and weighs about 2 Kgs, it can sit on almost any desk, the base also has a 75 x75 Vesa mount compatible hole pattern. I didn't paint it because I wanted to reach a point in which it looked good that way. The design allows for it to be used as an open air case or enclosed like a "normal" case, I like it both ways, it takes some seconds and you can change it on the fly, no screws just twist and "pop" the white domes out and it's open. Right now It is my main PC, I wanted it to work for everything and the specs allow for it within reason, from 3D editing on Blender and Fusion 360 to playing at 1080p. Some people might have already seen it on Custom PC Issue 228, raspberrypi.com, cowcotland.com, other sites and or YouTube. We will record a new video specifically for the #CMWS22 that will also include the Cooler Master Watermarks. Here a 3D model of the Case: NOT SPONSORED Specs: Mobo: Asrock Deskmini X300M-STX CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 5700G CPU Cooler: AIO Cooler Master MasterLiquid ML120L V2 Fan: Noctua NF-P12 redux-1700 PWM RAM: Corsair vengeance SoDIMM 2x32Gb at 3200 MHz 1st & 2nd SSD: Samsung 980 M.2 1Tb 3nd SSD: Samsung 860EVO 2.5" 250 Gb WiFi: Intel WiFi 6 AX200 A glimpse of the case with a Qr to the video You can find the final pics at page 2
  4. Hi everybody I'm Jeng_Ki today i very proud to present Project "I Love U 3000" let's go
  5. hello everyone!! This is the second I entered this contest. This one is a concept about a robot case. Which is a concept that I've been wanting to do for a long time. This time, I have the opportunity to create this piece for participation in the contest.
  6. Good day everyone! My name is Michael Dulay and it is my third time joining this prestigous event. I will be updating this thread as soon as I am able. Good luck to all and most importantly, let's all have fun doing what we like doing best.
  7. for CMWS2022 I also tried to follow the "non pc mod" category. I will make a mouse storage area so it doesn't get dusty when lying on the mouse pad. Until now I'm still confused about the mouse to be used. Maybe I'm using MM711 or CM310. But aesthetically it may be a bit disturbing. because the mouse uses a cable. It seems that using a wireless mouse would look better. The best choice is probably on the MM731. The design and philosophy of the chosen theme maybe a bit ordinary. because the processing time is very little. for this modification, I will make plywood as the main material. In summary, I combined Victorian chest style with Mecha legs from the future For additional materials, especially for accents, I will use a bit of PVC sheet. Even though this is my first time using plywood, I hope to present this work well. To maximize the use of easily recycled materials, for the final finishing layer, I used boiled tea leaves to give some color to the plywood layers. This plywood material is also an option because it wants to be included in the "Best Use Re useable Material Category"
  8. Welcome to My Worklog Hello everyone I am CincaiLah, a university student from Malaysia . My Modding Name CincaiLah is actually a common slang that Malaysians use which translates to "Whatever" or "Anything". I've recently taken interest in PC Building. Since I've always had an interest in DIY crafts as well, I've been inspired to participate in the CASE MOD WORLD SERIES 2022 by building a PC from scratch. With little experience in PC Building/Modding that I've gained purely from YouTube videos, I still have a lot to learn in the world of pc building. Nonetheless, I'll be giving the best I have in this series. Wish Me Luck. My current PC is a mini-ITX PC. Despite having decent hardware, its performance suffers from thermal throttling due to bad airflow. So, my plan for this project is to build a PC case with better airflow and an improved cooling system. One of the challenges I’ve set for myself is to improve the overall performance of the pc while also keeping the cost of the project as low as possible. Therefore, apart from the cooling upgrades, most of the components will be reused from the current PC. This Project also does not have any sponsor. The design of this PC case will be based on a car, the Perodua Myvi. What is a Myvi? Myvi is a car model manufactured by Perodua, Malaysia's largest car manufacturer. Myvi shares the same exterior design as the Toyota Passo as well as the Daihatsu Sirion. But why the Myvi? Well, here in Malaysia the Myvi has earned the nickname “King of The Road”. This nickname came with a good reason as Myvis are often seen achieving seemingly impossible feats. From driving through floods like a submarine to flying across large drainage canals, the Myvi has done it all. Being a small hatchback, the Myvi has earned a reputation for being small but mighty which is why I have chosen the Myvi as the design for the case. Despite having ITX size and low-profile components, this PC is not one to be looked down upon. The Myvi design symbolises the small but mighty attitude, and showcases one of the most iconic parts of Malaysia to the world. Hardware Specifications These are the hardware that I am using for this Project.

  9. This Project started a few month ago in a conversation with a Friend. He was talking about how nice it would be to put a fully custom watercooled PC on the Backside of a Monitor so that he can save some space and still have some eye candy. With this conversation in our head we often talked about it and how we could do that. And after a while we created a plan how we could do it so that the idea becomes reality. Luckily we were able to get our Hands on one of Coolermasters GM34 curved Gaming Monitors so that we were now in the Position to start our Scratch Build / Non PC Mod Project. But before we start, we wanted to send a big thank you to Coolermaster, Asrock, Predator, Seasonic & Alphacool for their ongoing Support over the last years!!!!! And naturally some eye candy Like you can imagine….first of all we had to unbox this Beauty of a Display to take a look on it and to start measuring all the Parts which were relevant for our Project. With all the Measurement taken, we could start with a mount for the Hardware Tray. Those mountings will be used to attach them and the Hardware Tray to the Original Monitor Stand. They are printed on one of our Resin Printers so that we got the highest accuracy on the Threads. After that, we transferred the Measurements we had taken, on a big sheet of aluminum, which we will use to mount our Hardware on it. As everything was transferred, we grabbed our Drills and Jigsaw to start the drilling and cutting of all the holes and openings we will need After this cutting and drilling, we had to bend the aluminum sheet so that is flows with the Curve of the monitor. And then we could add some Paint to our Hardware base, so that we could let it dry and start to work on some of the other Parts. Therefore we grabbed the radiators for the Watercooling and a part of the Monitor Stand, so that we could add some fresh paint in a pattern which reminds on the CM Color Scheme on the Box of the Monitor. With all those little things prepared....we could start to assemble the first parts... beside that we also prepared the GPU for watercooling and prepared the first tubes...
  10. Work ideas and work content This work uses the character GLADOS in the game named: portal as the main axis. The work is divided into two parts, one is the main body and the other is the controller The production part of the work uses a lot of 3D modeling and 3D printing objects, and will also add CNC, laser cutting and hand-made parts What is more special is that the body part has added a more complex mechanical and electronic structure and a camera, so that the head can be rotated, and the camera can also be used as a video. The controller uses the PORTEL GUN in the game as the complaint-like device for controlling GLADOS. In addition to the light effect on the gun body, it also adds a projection effect that can be manually zoomed. However, due to the equipment relationship, many photos cannot be used, most of them are videos, I will try my best to take screenshots to illustrate the production content Work hardware specifications GLADOS MB: ASRock Z690 Phantom Gaming-ITX/TB4 CPU: lntel Core i7-12700 RAM: ZADAK SPARK RGB DDR5 (16GB UNB DDR5 5200 CL38-38-38-84) SSD: ZADAK TVSG3 PCIE GEN3X4 M.2 SSD 500GB PSU: Cooler Master V850 SFX GOLD GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10GB Founders Edition PORTEL GUN CPU: Intel Core i7-13900K RAN: Corsair VENGANCE RGB DDR5 32GB (2 x 16GB) 5600MHz SSD: Corsair MP600 PRO 1TB GPU: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080 Founders Edition MB: ASRock Z790 PG-ITX/TB4 PSU: FSP Hydro PTH X PRO ATX3.0 PCIe5.0 1000W Step1. 3d modeling
  11. Scratch build Temple theme with black and gold color scheme "THE DARK TEMPLE" Scratch Build for CMWS22 #CMWS22 Joining Cooler Master World Series Competion is such a privilege for us, PC Modders.. where we can express ourselves when it comes to PC modding! Winning in several contests of RIG Modding here in the country inspired me in making this one. Attached pictures are the process on making the build from day 1 of August up to this month. Enjoying on what I'm doing and eagerness to see the output of my work/build was there and now I'm proudly present to you my creation. To build the project, these are the materials used: - metal - steel - acrylic - glass - ABS plastic - paint with the System specs: Intel core i7 12700k Gigabyte Z690 Gaming X Trident Z Royal Gold 16gbx2 36000mhz Gigabyte RTX 3070ti Gaming X 1tb Samung 980 m.2 nvme 1000watts Seasonic Prime Platinum Lianli strimer Plus Cooler Master MF120 Halo Barrow/Bykski Custom Water coolling *Thank you to all the people showing their support behind this.
  12. I present to you the Ducati panigale pc. the result of almost 1 year of planning and construction. the pc is inspired by the Ducati panigale v4r and adapted to be a pc and mounts the following components: i7 12700k, MSI MPG CORELIQUID K240 Asus z690m, RAM Corsair Vengeance RGB PRO 32 GB PSu Cooler Master MWE 750 Gold V2 wrapped, 1tb ssd and 4tb hard disk. The whole case was made using 3D printing, it was finished and painted in the bodywork to have the same glossy finish as the panigale v4r and all the stickers were made to measure. The frame has a carbon effect finish and on the front there is our name and logo with a completely rgb hexagonal effect that recalls the back. In place of the clutch cover of the bike we find a completely adapted RGB fan to maintain the design. The CPU radiator is in the same position as the motorcycle radiator so as to be more similar to the real one. Instead of the ignition key we can find a button with a led circle. There are also the position lights on the front and the rear lights, both dimmable. Finally, a 3.5" screen made exactly like the original one by adapting it to a PC because instead of the speed we find the degrees of the CPU and based on the temperature the engine revolutions increase or decrease, at the top left instead of the motorcycle temperature we have a interactive bar for the temperature of the gpu (which is not currently mounted), at the top right we find the time while at the bottom right we find cpu and ram load.
  13. Hello everyone, I'm Samca from Philippines! I will be creating an updated version of Winged Victory casemod with a mix of Evangelion theme The scratch casemod was inspired from the sculpture: Winged victory of samothrace And we will be mixing the idea with Evangelion's Rei Ayanami
  14. Hello Everyone, Andrew here of Ghost Customs. I am a PC Modder based in Malaysia. This year, I am going to try my skills in building a diorama style case mod. The theme I am hoping to achieve is an old sci-fi/industrial structure. One thing that catches my attention in this year's CMWS is the new category which is the "USE OF REUSABLE MATERIALS". So one of my goal in this project is to use reused/reusable/recycled materials as much as I can. It is my first time to incorporate reused/reusable/recycled materials(my first time to be conscious if the materials I will use in a project can be reused/reusable/recycled) into a project and it is really challenging. To use materials that you are not sure whether they are going to work or if it will suit your build is really tough. When I started working on the aesthetics, I feel like I am working without direction. As you can see on the 3d plan that I have below, some of the designs are removed and the 3D plan is mostly blank. It is really challenging and at the same time, it is satisfying to know that most of the materials I used are something than can benefit our environment even in the tiniest way. Aside from PC Hardware components. I would say that around 97% of this project's materials are from reused/reusable/recycled items. The materials used are: - plastic (used food trays, old/broken toys, hair curlers, candy container, gum container, bottle caps, used straws, old filter cover of some sort, borrowed plastic tube toys, acrylic, PVC Board, PLA) - wood (base of the project) - aluminum (the frame of the project, soda can, soft wires) - others (old capacitor, some chips from broken electronics, motor from a broken hand mixer, screws, pcb board from a dead HDD, LCS fittings) There are only 2 items that I can think of that aren't reusable in this project: paints/makeups and putty With regards to the PC Hardware, I really wanted to paint it and put some rust on it to make it blend with the theme. But as much as I wanted to modify the hardware, I also don't want to ruin the elegance of the hardware. It's difficult to decide which option to choose, but for now, I'm going to look at it as a sci-fi industrial structure equipped with modern machinery.
  15. As a custom PC designer and casemodder I got alot of questions from people at my work (structural engineer), whether I can build a PC out of anything. I haven't failed yet so I always answer yes to that one. Well about time to prove it ones again. But this time, I'll give them a little suprise.

Hi, My name : Carl Collard / Mods Art PC Job : EO Tech in the Canadian Army Gender : M country : Age : 42 Kids : 4 Builds : 4 CMWS history : 0 CMWS22 : 1 Sponsor : 0 Build name : Hope Lantern Why Hope Lantern? Sometime, hope needs light to shine. Hope about what? Life on earth Hope for what? Mankind enlightenment. Why this hope? Climat change impacts on earth's ecosystem Why the lantern? To help us see it. Why oil? For many generations, oil lanterns were used to lit and heat houses. Why water? All life on earth rely on this molecule. Why oil on water? Oil is the remain of water life forms from hundred of millions years ago. Why use glass? Like every life; extremely fragile and beatifull. Why use old rads? Things from ~ 80 years ago were nice looking and made to last long. Why PC mod it? IA is a new life form. And... What IA would think about life? Then... IA: "Did you know that if gravity would be slightly more powerfull, the universe would collapse into a ball? Also, if gravity would be slightly less powerfull, the universe would fly apart and there wouldn't be stars or planets. The gravity is just precisely as strong as it needs to be. If relation with the électromagnetic force and strong force was less by 1%, life wouldn't exist. What are the ods that all that happen by itself?" IA citation source: https://youtu.be/3qGXdw4mG70 ‐---------------------------------------- Description : For this mod, I chose the lantern theme because this is a nice looking object where lightning is the purpose. I lot of nice things can be done with light like refraction, reflexion and diffraction. The way it act when it pass from a material to another is facinating. And the visible spectrum of light let us see our beatifull word.

  17. Hi Everyone, I am Rexy from the Philippines. It is my first-time to join here in CMWS. I will do Modification on the Cooler Master MM731 with a theme of Sci-fi. I like to watch Sci-fi movies which gives me a futuristic concept of what I called - "MOU-CA" (MOUse in a CApsule). The idea is to put a revolving mouse inside an experimental capsule. The base structure is 3d printed. And for the aesthetics, I'll be using scraps, recyclable materials and some 3d printed parts. Thank you Cooler Master for this opportunity. And, I am looking forward to see all the entries for this season. Peripherals: COOLER MASTER MM731 Inspiration: *I don't know who the original creator of the photos from above. I saw it on google with different uploader so - who ever the original creator - credits to you.
  18. Hi Brothers, I want to show you something really amazing that I'm creating right now. It's my FIRST SCRATCH PROJECT BUILD, as required by the script.=} The name of the project is SP4RCESHIP, which is the translation of "NAVE ESPACIAL". The 4R listed in the project name makes mention the four most important people in my life: Rosana (wife), Raquel, Rafaella and Rebecca (daughters). The project will be based on metrics, as follows: - Concept: Futuristic spaceship with upper window on canvas to show the “crew members”. The ship will move in a “landing” and “takeoff” motion, with ARGB(addressable RGB) light effects. The project color will be matte medium dark grey. The idea is to have the project in a horizontal position(about 40 degrees) and rest in a vertical position. - Size: The project as a whole will have a length between 60 and 70 centimeters, a total width of 35 to 45 centimeters and a height of 15 to 25 centimeters. These measurements will be defined when the hardware and equipment are assembled in the project. - Construction materials: MDF wood, Metalon(Steel), Gel Coat, Fiberglass, Acrylic, Styrofoam, aluminum screen. Below is a sketch of the design that will be the basis for building the project (sorry for the LoL design)
  19. Good Day, Friends! I am very glad to participate in the contest once again... How it all started… All my projects were created for the CMWS competition. And this project was no exception! I first got into modding when I was invited to participate in the Cooler Master Case Mod World Series (CMWS) 2016 competition. Since then, I have prepared my projects every year specifically for this competition, and in 2017 I even managed to take 1st place with my VEGA project. As a child, all the boys wanted to become astronauts, and I was no exception. I've always been fascinated by science fiction novels about space exploration, space travel, robots, spacecraft and distant galaxies. It was inevitable that this influence would find its way into my mods at some point. The first sketches of this Sputnik-inspired PC began to appear a couple of years ago. At that time, I had no experience working with aluminum and decided to start with a simpler project to avoid expensive mistakes. Once the old pencil sketches of the Sputnik project were retrieved, and the project started afresh. Looking at these sketches now, I see how little the finished project has in common with those first drawings. The layout and frame were redesigned several times, and the perforations that are a crucial part of the overall design have changed a huge number of times. But again we return to space!) The Sputnik project is a reference to The first synthetic satellite of the Earth. All stages of design and manufacturing was strictly controlled by the head of CATControl!
  20. Good day to all! I am glad to participate in the CMWS contest once again. The previous project Simple Case became my main working computer. The air cooling there is thought out and the temperatures are quite low, the only source of noise there was a video card with turbine-type cooling. Experiments with liquid cooling of the graphics card and processor have yielded sufficiently low temperatures and a very low noise level. The requirements that I set myself: 1. Tower-type housing with liquid cooling in order to get rid of noise and free up the desktop as much as possible. So, the housing must have the minimum possible dimensions. At the same time, the minimum size of the radiator for sufficient cooling of the assembly is 360 mm. 2. The design had to be quite strict, without excessive details, all connections had to be hidden from the eyes - therefore, the assembly on the rivets was immediately dismissed and it was decided to make a welded body. 3. All wires should come out from the back at the bottom of the housing. A tray for peripheral equipment wires should be provided. 4. Additional air cooling of the power supply, motherboard and video card. Warm air should not linger in the housing and leave it freely. 5. Installation of a coolant tank on the front panel for aesthetic beauty. Power button and USB 3.0 ports on the front panel for convenient operation. 6. Demonstration of the motherboard on one side and the graphics card on the other. Demonstration of additional SATA SSD drives. 7. The use of rigid tubes for aesthetic appearance and pre-designed holes for them. 8. Installation of a temperature sensor for visual control of the temperature by your own. The prototype was developed without components on hand, according to drawings and photos from the Internet. In the front part of the case there is an EK EK-Quantum Volume FIT 360 D-RGB tank (350 ml, 360 mm), on the back wall there is a radiator combined with a pump - Barrow DARIDP-30. Fans that blow through the radiator should also take warm air from the power supply, motherboard and video card. There is a place for a 120mm fan from below, the air flow from which is directed to the video card in order to cool its backup and supply cold air to the power supply.
  21. Hello everyone This is my first year competing in CMWS and my first time building a case from scratch so i'm going into this with no prior knowledge. Requirements: -The case needs to be made from wood and acrylic. -It needs to be able to fit any component such as 330mm+ GPU's, large tower coolers, hard drives, atx motherboard and power supply, etc. (except for water cooling components) -It should have a sleek and minimalist design with a cyan or light blue accent colour. -The case needs dedicated cable management runs and holes to keep the sleek and minimalist design. -every component (including power supply) needs enough airflow or cooling to keep the temperatures below that of my current case. (silverstone fara f1) -I have also set myself a budget of $200NZD (~$130USD) and most of the work will be done at my school as i don't have all that equipment to make it at home. planning: The first plans for a wooden case come from last year but those were created without any requirements or any intention on making them. The first actual designs were made earlier this year and have been refined to what my final design looks like now. I started simple with some reference cases that i liked and just started sketching parts that i liked before I started making some quick 3D models in fusion 360. And the final step was to create a fully functional case that met all the requirements in fusion 360.
  22. hi guys, I'm very happy to participate in the cmws22 competition again this year, they presented a scratch build, the work will be carried out without the use of complex machinery and most of the work will be done manually. the theme is aluminum, AL 26.982 is the atomic weight of this perfect material for this mod, it would seem that the aluminum metal will be in large quantities ... no but I will try to give the idea of it with the plexigrass and special paints ... I will try to save as much as possible on materials .. thanks but let's start immediately ..
  23. I know right? Back so soon? But this year for the World Series, Cooler Master added a new category for best use of reusable materials. Which means, "– For this a large proportion of the build must be made from natural, bio or recycled material/items." I thought it was perfect timing because I had been mulling a case idea that fit perfectly into this.The general idea:A natural fiber composite case. While working on Carbon, I came across some stuff on natural fiber composites. Not as strong as carbon fiber(bout half as strong if I recall), but it was a really cool look; and being a renewable resource, something that I thought had a bright future. So I put the idea on the back burner because I was too far along on Carbon to change things out. Skip ahead to the middle of October when I was finishing Carbon, and there was just enough time that I might be able to knock out a natural fiber case before the December deadline.The hardware:Since this is a last minute personal build and the category we're shooting for is "natural, bio or recycled materials/items", why not use some recycled hardware?CPU: Intel i5 9600KMB: MSI MPG Z390 GAMING PRO CARBONRAM: 16GB HyperX Predator DDR4GPU: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070PSU: Silverstone SX700-LPTStorage: Samsung 970 EVO Plus 500GB and 2TB NVME drivesFans: 3 Cooler Master MasterFan MF120 Halo and a random CM case fan I had laying around.CPU cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 Black EditionYep, I did have to buy the new storage and cooler, plus I totally forgot to get a pic of the case fans.Next up, we'll start with the build.
  24. Welp, back at it again. I don't think I've done build logs for the last two cases I've done, so this might be a bit rough around the edges, but I'll give it a go!It's been a minute since LAN parties and since it seems I might be able to attend some this year, I decided now would be a good time to build a new case for competition. I can't keep taking the same old cases to new events!So here's the initial design: I want something that looks fancy and refined while just sitting on a desk, but then lights up and shows off the hardware when it's running. The plan is carbon fiber for the middle structure and some sort of wood side panels with a mirrored or tinted piece of acrylic for the curved window. I wanted a different way of looking at the hardware instead of through a side panel, so solid sides and a see through front and top.So let's start with the hardware, not the most important part of a build, but without it, I'd just be building a box.Gigabyte Z690, i7 12700K, 32 GB of Vengeance PRO RAM, a Silverstone SFX-L power supply, and a CM 240mm AIO. I've got a couple of drives that will obviously go with but I don't remember what they are and I still need to figure out the fans. And then there's the giant chunk of unobtanium that is the GeForce RTX3080Ti. A big thanks to GeForce Garage for helping me out!And now the box I'm shoving all this into...First off trying to get an idea of spacing and sizes so I can figure out how big this framework needs to be. Yes, I've started and have no clue how big the case will actually end up. It's just how my process works, don't ask.With a general idea of size now, I can start working up a mold. I'm using 1/2" MDF.Yes, I built a box, but only because it's easier to just make the whole thing rather than make something the exact pattern I'm going for. This way I can use the box to draw out and eyeball the design and once I get it where I like it, I can just layup the carbon fiber in the pattern I want.I used screws to hold it together while the glue dried and then pulled them so they wouldn't get in the way later and used putty to fill in all the holes and any misses on the panel edges.After that was sanded out, I took an 1/8" roundover bit to all the corners to make the layup easier. Then a couple coats of shellac to seal the MDF so when I coat it with epoxy, it's not soaking into the wood.Now was the time to do a bit of layout work. I know I want some insets in the mold and to know where I need to do some cutting, I need an idea of where the components are going.Next time, I should be cutting some holes in my brand new box and hopefully getting to a point where I can lay down some epoxy.Thanks for following along and thanks to GeForce Garage for sponsoring this build!
  25. hello everyone, I'm JMDF This year I am glad to have the opportunity to participate in the competition again. And this time I came up with the gatling gun concept.
