  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. I will build the case Cooler Master still not have built. Idea: Transform a Cosmos C700M to a mITX SFF build.

  3. Greetings everyone On this cmws2022 opportunity, apart from the scratch build category, I also participated in the tower mod category. In this tower mod category, I will use the Q500L case, but I will change it to a smaller one. It may be made a version of the Q230L . The philosophical approach to the modification theme this time, I want to criticizing in a surrealist style the public's misperception of "phandora". Why do people always identify this "phandora" with a box? In fact, Pandhora is not square. 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. for 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.
  4. 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
  5. 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.
  6. Intro Hello again! I am Jamie and am working under the name Space Bar Mods, which is a little computer side business I do with my family. This involves my teenage kids working with computers, graphic design, animation, and all the fun stuff that comes with modding. We have added lots of fun things to use and now have 3- 3D Printers and a Laser CNC. This is our second time submitting a build and cannot wait for next time. Our ideas grow so much, and we expand what we can do each time. Project design concept and inspiration This build’s theme was all from the kids and came about in August. They play this game with their friends and frequently watch streamers play. With the new VR edition out, we all thought it would be fun to make our own little bean. Being “Red” is the most sus, we went with him as our primary objective. After doing soft cooling last build, we decided to give hard tubing a go and make some crazy bends to simulate the inside of our lil bean. We ran with it from there. https://media3.giphy.com/media/7fWLhYvT5bl3Pwu1Xy/200.gif Components Case: Cooler Master - Cooler Master NR200P Power Supply: Cooler Master V850 SFX Gold Motherboard: GIGABYTE B550 I AORUS PRO AX Processor: AMD RYZEN 7 5800X Memory: Gigabyte AORUS RGB DDR4 16GB (2x8GB) 4400MHz Memory Graphics Card: GIGABYTE RTX 3080 Eagle Storage: WD Black SN750 SE NVMe M.2 2280 1TB Fans: Cooler Master MasterFan MF120 Halo Liquid Cooling: Alphacool Blocks, Radiator, Pump/Resevoir Combo, fittings, tubes, and drain system. Coolant: PrimoChill Vue Sky White SX Creation process We knew we wanted to turn our case vertical to give the aspect ratios of a bean. To give him, more character, we created feet and a head using Fusion360. We sent those to our larger 3D printer. The head took close to 9 days and the feet another 2. We really wanted a clear visor, so after creating that, we sent it to our resin printer, which only took about 12 hours. Two of our kids are into graphics design and created some animations and hardware backgrounds for a monitor we decided to add to our visor. While all that was going on, my last daughter and I dismantled the entire case and began our sanding, priming, sanding, painting process for all of the pieces. Once complete we began altering for our needs. We completely flipped the power cage to the outside so we would have room for a larger pump. The larger pump had holes made so it could be screwed into the back of the case. We made a cut out that allowed our power cables to come to the power supply and then bundled it nicely into our beans backpack which was made in fusion as well. It is mounted using magnets. His little feet got sanded, painted, and attached. His head had to be filled sanded and painted (more about him later). We then attached our visor and his rubber gasket. We mounted our screen. We tested our components on a test bench to make sure everything was A-OK and then began flushing all our water components. We then installed blocks and began assembling our water loops. Hard tubing was a lot of fun! We tested our loop overnight and booted our bean up for the first time. We then installed all our graphics and animations to our display. Issues & Problems The 3D printing of our head (9-day print) almost had to be restarted at 74% due to a thermistor breaking. The build cooled too much and almost broke completely. We were able to get it fixed and restart the build with minimal issue. It took a little filling and lots of sanding, but in the end, we made it work. Our visor took 3 tries to get right. We used filament which did not give us the effect we wanted at all. Then we used our smaller resin printer, breaking it down into multiple pieces, but that was just an eye sore. We purchased an amazing larger resin printer and got exactly what we wanted. First time working with hard tubing was a learning curve! When they say get extra tubing and fittings, y’all weren’t kidding!
  7. 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. Idea: Transform a desk organizer into a custom watercooled gaming PC. A true sleeper. Hardware: Mobo - Asus ROG Strix Z490-I Gaming CPU - Intel Core i7 10700k RAM - 16GB DDR4 With EK Nickel Monarch modules on SSD - Samsung M.2 Nvme 512 GB PSU - Corsair SF750 GPU - Nvidia 2080Ti Founders Edition Fans - 4x Cooler Master MasterFan 120 mm Water cooling: EK Lignum GPU Waterblock EK Lignum CPU Waterblock EK Kinetic DDC Pump/Res combo 2x EK Coolstream 240SE Radiators EK Lignum HDC12 EK Torque Black EK ZMT 12/16 Mods: Modified desk organizer (only removed material) 10 extra screws No added materials No paint, putty or other surface treatment Minimal use of electric tools, jiggsaw and drill. Sponsors: None - Only reused hardware from prevoius projects
  8. Hello everyone, I'm Haris, I'm from Indonesia. On this occasion, I will modify the MasterBox Q500L Sakura Edition case, the concept itself is quite simple, just continuing the existing trend, namely the collaboration between Cooler Master and ASRock, but in my personal version. Because there are some hardware used in this modification, so I named this project a Alliance. And this is some hardware that I use for this project
  9. Hi everyone, I'm a bit late to the game here, just finding out about this contest a few days ago, but I have something that I think everyone might like and can do. I wish I would have been able to show you the entire process but I had no idea this contest was happening until a buddy told me about it. So I'll keep it brief and right at the start let you know that depending on your resources, the cost is anywhere from $150 and up, with the most expensive part being the water jet. "Water jet?!?" Yeah... let me explain. The NR200 Max case is a dream to me. Fantastic case with bundled power and an AIO with a huge radiator as big as the case. I absolutely will keep this case for years to come. Just in case ( pun intended ) you don't know what it looks like from the factory, see the attached image below. This was my first PC built ever. I was super excited to do it. I won't bore you with the specs because the mod is what's important here. Suffice it say, that while I was building the PC, I noticed the front panel had a bit of space behind it, intended for a few SSD drives ( see image below ). I had no need for that space as all my storage was going to be on my motherboard, but It gave me an idea: What about a touch screen? Sure. A 7 Inch Raspberry Pi Touchscreen Mini HDMI Monitor would fit perfectly. The only real question was how to do it. How do I cut the metal exactly right to have it fit? And what if I screw up? Then I have a case with no face. The routing of wire would be easy, but how to connect the screen to the front panel after a precision hole is cut into it and make sure it's sturdy enough to be a legit touch screen? Well right away I knew I had to get an extra front face, even if this meant I had to buy an entire new NR200 rig and sell the rest of it for parts on ebay. I was getting a front panel. I looked on the parts site at Cooler Master. Nothing. I called them and asked if I could buy one. Nope. I scoured ebay and other sites. No luck. Then I hit on an idea. I searched the UK Cooler Master site. ( I live in the US ). And the computer mod Gods were on my side as I found an NR200 Black front panel for sale. I immediately purchased it and shipped it to a friend in the UK as they would not ship it to the US. I promised my buddy a pint or two when I see him next and he shipped it to me, which included a crazy customs form, triplicate paper, Pro-Forma something or other - anyway a hassle. But a week or so later I got the black front panel. Step one completed. I knew three things had to happen: 1, cut a precision hole; 2, sandblast the black paint off; and 3, paint the panel the EXACT color as the NR200 MAX case. And I figured it had to happen in that order. If I had it sand blasted first and then cut, that could have damaged it more and left it exposed to the small possibility of rust. If I sand blasted, painted , then cut, well best case scenario is I would still have the tiny edge of the cut to paint. Anyways it was obvious these were the steps to do next. Step 2: the cut. How? Precisely measure the 'live' part of the screen, mark those dimensions in the exact center of the panel, then drill a hole and cut it with a metal jigsaw blade? Sure if I was a handyman god... but I'm not. At best, I'm a handyman minor deity, and that's only after hours of YouTube videos. So me doing the work was not going to be as exact as I needed so I looked to industrial options. Living in the Los Angeles area gives me a wide variety of metal working shops to call. After a huge amount of research, checking Yelp reviews, and calls, I found a company in Sun Valley who could do the job. Now this is the most expensive step but I was willing to make this investment. I'm going to have this case for a decade or more and I really want this integrated panel, so... I laid out $200 +tax to get the cut. Yes, I know. Some o you have friend who could do this and that is awesome. Some of you could do the cut yourself and I am absolutely impressed by that skill, but in this instance I made the call and DAMN am I glad I did. The cut was perfection. Down to the half a millimeter. It is perfect. Step two completed. So now the tricky part: matching color. I tried for quite some time to find out the exact color. After a few support tickets and one seriously dedicated Cooler Master employee, I got my answer: Pantone Cool Grey 3c matte finish. ( see attached image ). This was all I needed.. or so I thought. Turns out that most metal painting places don't really do Pantone color. I looked and looked for one that would do the sand blasting ( or chemical paint removal )and be able to apply the exact paint. Well I'm still looking, but more on that in a minute. I did find a place that could do the job and had a paint chip that was super close. I mean I looked at it against the original front panel, outside in the sunlight, and then under cool LED lights. I agonized over the four gray color choices they had available for me and I would have sworn the one I choose was the right one in a gloss finish ( why not make the front panel pop a bit, right? ) So they did the job. I got the piece back, and... well damn... it was not exact. Maybe it was the heating process, maybe the hue on the paint chip samples was off. Eh, whatever it was, the cool grey I got painted on it now is just a bit mossy greener than the original NR200 MAX Pantone Cool Grey 3C colored case. So freaking close, and I will continue to look for the absolute exact paint solution, but for now it's close and I'm calling it. Step three and four completed. Next the relatively easy part. Buy some 1mm sealing foam tape, line just to the inside of the hole with it on the inside of the panel, run a few cables in the bottom of the case to a USB port on the motherboard and an HDMI port coming out of the GPU. Then connect it all up and mount the touchscreen to the inside of the newly painted front panel. Now this is where, on the inside of the build, it gets a bit dodgy. I had every intention to epoxy 'weld' four brass standoff spacers to the inside of the panel, but since I am still on the hunt for the correct paint, I went with a more... um... DIY approach. FINE. I used painter's tape to attach it for now. It's fine. It's functional. And I never see it. BUT one day, a GAWD as my witness, I am going to epoxy 'weld' those spacers in place and properly secure the screen to the panel. Step five complete... for now. And there you have it: An integrated 7 inch touchscreen panel in the front panel of the NR200 MAX. Time consuming project sourcing vendors. Expensive water jet but overjoyed with those results. And ABSOLUTELY thrilled with the end result. ( see images below. Nevermind the Mac keyboard. I use my work computer and my NR200 MAX on the same monitor ). The first PC I've ever built and I made it my own. Isn't this what it's all about? Thanks all and happy modding!
  10. Hi, Im Benjamin from Malaysia.

  11. 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!
  12. 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.
  13. Hi everyone and thanks for stopping by to check out my build log. I will be transforming the NR200p into a vertical tower encompassing elements of nature mixed with an industrial retro theme. I have just started stripping the case and ordering parts. This week I hope to start modifying the side and front panels and start drawing up designs for the top vent. Parts that will be included in the build will be transferred from my old system. -i5 6600k clocked at 4.8ghz -16 gb ddr4 ram -z170 motherboard -1070 water cooled -600-watt sfx PSU I'm a bit late to the party but I'm really looking forward to how this evolves over the coming weeks. All the best and looking forward to all you amazing builds!
  14. Hello Im Dony (daguar). I come from Indonesia At CMWS 2020, this is the second time I have participated in this prestigious competition. For this CMWS20, my case mod title is "SURVIVOR" and it will bring a sci-fi vehicle concept that must survive in a dystopian world. a form of criticism of humans whose ability to adapt to their habitat i decreasing. I convey this criticism in the form of sci-fi vehicle. An allegory in the form of theatrical geometry. There are too many things that inspire me in CMWS 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. Hopefully the NR200P case I use can help me get the most out of the idea to use. Finally, my hope is to get the best out of this competition. And to all CMWS20 participants, "I am proud to compete with all of you" Good Luck all
  15. Hello my name is Ivan and I’m formally entering the tower mod category in this year’s Case Mod World Series. About six months ago I built my first water loop on a Masterframe 700, and ever since then I been itching to build a loop on a very small case. I heard about this competition on the 4th of October and it finally gave me a reason to make it happen. As opposed to trying to design a case Cooler Master hasn’t invented, I decided to highlight a beautiful design Cooler Master did make. For this project I will be building a water cooled Mini ITX system inside the MasterCase EG200. Hardware Nvidia Titan XP with EK 1080TI waterblock EK FLT 120 Reservoir EK DC-XTOP water pump XSPC TX 240 Radiator 2X Noctua NF-A12x15 AMD Ryzen 5 5600X AMD EK Quantum Velocity waterblock Asrock B550M ITX motherboard 2X 16 gig Corsair Vengeance LPX Coolermaster Mastercase EG200 Coolermaster V850 SFX Gold PSU The case was ordered on the 6th and it arrived on OCT 13th. It’s a lot smaller than I imagined, more updates coming soon. Pictures of my first running loop, EG200 case teardown, component test fittings, and new motherboard frame.
  16. Hey all! I have been building/painting this over the past few months after work and I am pretty happy with how it came out. I am a fan of the Borderlands Series and I wanted to make something that was pulled straight from the world. I went with a few mods that I designed and 3D printed to add some flair to the build: 3D printed, taller feet for air flow Custom designed "vent" and standoffs attached to the PSU housing for cable management Cut out the space to fit a 5" monitor in the front Custom designed frame for the front monitor Acrylic/UV reactive painted parts Painted and lettered all the keys on the keyboard by hand Designed a wallpaper in wallpaper engine for the front display Hope you enjoy! Here are a few of my favorites and the final submissions https://imgur.com/a/YHdyYNE
  17. Hey Folks !!! I've been modding and building PCs for a really long time, last major mod was my NZXT Phantom about a decade ago. I recently attended a LAN Party with my friends (https://lpane.net/ ) and took home a sweet Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL240 Flux AIO cooler, which reignited my desire to have a dedicated LAN PC! A project and idea were born and I began researching cases that I could use my cooler in as well as my collection of left over parts from my previous desktop computer build. After much research and deliberation I chose the Cooler Master NR200P mini ITX/DTX case cause well I love the Blue color it comes in and I realized that with a little modification I could make this case work for my cooler and be a unique work of art in the process. I'm a big fan of robots and what not so all my computers have been named after robots etc, my OG build was Wheatley from Portal 2 built in a Phantom, my new build is Rosie from the Jetsons built in a Corsair 7000D, that brings us to this build ! XJ9/Jenny after the main character in My Life as a Teenage Robot on Nickelodeon. The color the case kind of sealed the deal ! FAQ: Q: Why the old GPU ? A: The games we play at LAN Parties are older and less graphically intensive, also this PC will run Linux so older hardware is better supported there So lets run down what we are doing here !! These are the parts I have on hand and have decided to use so far , everything else Is up in the air at the moment ! Parts on Hand: - Cooler Master MasterLiquid PL240 Flux AIO Liquid Cooler - Cooler Master NR200P mini ITX/DTX Case in Caribbean Blues - Sapphire AMD RX 580 Nictro+ 8GB GPU Tentative Parts (Parts I am considering for the rest of the build) - Corsair SFX750 750Watt SFX PSU - ASUS ROG Crosshair VIII Impact - (x2) Samsung 980 Pro 2TB NVME PCIe 4.0 SSD - (x2) Scythe Kaze Flex 120mm Slim Fan 300-1800RPM (Bottom Intake) - More To come The Mods (So Far ) - Invert and Flip the NR200P case, top mount Radiator for AIO cooler, vertical mount GPU upsidedown, Window on right side from the front. - Paint PSU mounting bracket and PCI slot covers metallic silver - Custom 3D Printed U shaped feet, sanded and painted metallic silver - GPU shroud painted metallic blue in special two part pain process using colored clear coats - Paint GPU PCIe clip metallic silver to match rest of PCI slot covers. - Paint the solid white stripe part of the mesh on the top metallic blue using the same two part process as GPU shroud. - Custom 3D printed mount plate for mounting radiator flush in the top (work in progress)
  18. Good day everyone! Mike here of Mikol Pc Concepts and this is my second time to join this event. My entry for this year is the Haf Stacker 915R "Shorty", a modified Haf Stacker 915R. I've decided to use this case because I've noticed that a lot of SFF cases are coming out and I wanted to try something different. The 915R though is made for ITX builds, the length was that of those full tower cases. I feel like shortening the length would make it ideal and can directly compete with other SFF cases.
  19. INTRODUCTION My target was to create a small, quiet, powerful and beautiful computer for work and gaming. I decided to use the CoolerMaster NR200P case. The problem was that I wanted to use the glass window, place the RTX 3080 at the bottom, place the water cooling on top, make the case quiet and cold. It was impossible to do all this at the same time in the current version of the case. In the first attempt, I completely destroyed the case while modifying. Then I bought another new case and found this solution with a minimum of modifications.

There is final shots and detailed shots of modified parts. Also shots of temperature meterring while gaming Crysis Remastered - that loads RTX 3080 very havy. CREATION PROCESS DESCRIPTIONS 1) Remove redundant plastic from the top panel. See images with top panel. 2) Remove one of the four fan mounts for each water cooling fan. The mount that is above the memory. This will allow you to place the fans above the memory. 3) Move the PSU so that hot air is blown out towards the side panel. Trim the PSU holder slightly to fit into the holes on the case. Fix PSU on fron panel. See picture _AZ73759_.jpg 4) Put two thin fans 92mm on side panel for output air; 5) Put one fan 92mm ob back panel for input air; 6) configure processor for overclocking = +13%, PWM managment for all fans = silent; Its all. See results. Small ITX case with glass window, RTX3080 inside, completly silent and cold. Thank you.
  20. Hello CoolerMaster fans! It's that time of the year again. Welcome to CMWS 2020! I hope everyone is doing fine despite the ongoing pandemic. For this years project, I will be doing a small form factor build using the NR200 Case from Coolermaster. The theme of the mod will be based on the game, Control by remedy entertainment. I would like to thank the following sponsors for the support: Coolermaster - (case, fans, PSU) MSI Gaming - (motherboard and graphics card) Patriot - (M.2 SSD, RAM) Quick Specs: i5 10500K MSI Z490 Unify ITX MSI RTX 2080 16gb Patriot DDR 3600 500GB Patriot VPR100 NVME SSD 500GB Tforce Cardea TUF NVME SSD ASUS TUF GAMING LC 240 AIO Coolermaster V850 SFX PSU Coolermaster NR200P Case
  21. Meet ikigai (生き甲斐) (pronounced (ikiɡai) a Japanese concept meaning “a reason for being” The word refers to having a meaningful direction or purpose in life, constituting the sense of one’s life being made worthwhile, with actions (spontaneous and willing) taken towards achieving one’s ikigai resulting in satisfaction and sense of meaning to life. Ikigai is my entry into the Cooler Master World Series 2020. It’s a small form factor scratch build case in tower format. The case features hand cut wood joinery, hard piped water cooling, and an open component design comprising primarily of Wenge wood, acrylic, spruce and black aluminum. I'm looking forward to sharing the process and photos of the build with you soon!. A special shout out to MSI for providing the B550I Gaming Edge Motherboard and the AMD Radeon 5700 video card provided for this build and Cooler Master for their continued support. Build List: Motherboard: MSI B550I Gaming Edge Wifi (Sponsored) CPU: AMD 5600X GPU: MSI AMD Radeon 5700 Gaming X (Sponsored) PSU: Cooler Master 650 SFX Memory: G Skill Ripjaws V 3600mhz 32GB Storage: Western Digital SN750 1 TB, SN550 1 TB Watercooling: Alphacool GPU Block and Radiator Optiumus CPU Block, EKWB fittings and tubing Fans: Cooler Master SF360R
  22. Hi everybody, The building is about transforming a conventional computer. My goal is to make the brittle metal, the boring plastic and the living wood working together. To make the computer the decoration of a room, not just a box under the desk. Of course I'll use liquid cooling for the look and quiet. SPECS Case: Cooler Master H100 PSU: Cooler Master MWE Gold 650 V2 Full Modular Motherboard: ASUS Rog Strix Z490i Gaming CPU: Intel I3 10100 GPU: ASUS ROG STRIX GTX Geforce 1660 TI 6GB Memory: Geil EVO X II 3600 DDR4 Storage: WD Black SN750 NVMe SSD 500GB CPU Cooler: AlphaCool XPX 1U GPU Cooler : AlphaCool NexXxos Ovangkol wood (mahagoni) Weight: 14,5 kg The stock Cooler Master H100 "Baby" case is the base of the build but since the dimensions of the GPU outgrown the case I have to mod it too by adding 100mm to it. I build the 280 radiator to the lower wooden frame and replace one of the fans with the PSU which fan will cool the radiator too. I place the H100 case on top of this. I combine these two parts with 2 special clamps. The liquid cooling will be on one circuit, the pump and tank combination will be on the lower wooden frame. The side and top of the case will be decorated with wooden inserts. Thank you to all of my sponsors for the support! * Cooler Master Hungary * Asus Hungary * AlphaCool * Geil The challenge is on, it will be exciting and interesting. Follow the worklog! Thank you!
