  1. 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.
  2. 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. HARDWARE Processor: AMD Ryzen 9 3900X, 12/24, 3.8-4.6GHz, AM4, 105W, DDR4 3200MHz -> Overclock +13% Watercooling: ASUS ROG Strix LC 240 RGB White Edition, 2500rpm, 37.4dBA, 81CFM Motherboard: ASUS ROG CROSSHAIR VIII IMPACT, X570, 2xDDR4, 2xM.2 Memory: G.Skill Trident Z Royal 32Gb 3600MHz, 16-19-19-39, 1.35V, F4-3600C16D-32GTRSC, 2x16 SSD: Samsung 970 PRO 1Tb MLC 2-bit 1200TBW 3500/2700, MZ-V7P1T0BW SSD: Samsung 860 PRO 2Tb MLC 2-bit 2400TBW 560/530, MZ-76P2T0BW OS: Windows 10 Pro Videocard: MSI NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080 10Gb, 1440/1710MHz, 750W PSU: Corsair SF750 SFX Platinum 750W Case: Cooler Master MasterBox NR200P, Mini-DTX, MCB-NR200P-WGNN-S00, White Fan: ID-COOLING NO-9215 PWM 92x92x15, 2500rpm, 33dBA, 44CFN, 0.16A, 9215M12S x2 Fan: Be Quiet Pure Wings 2 PWM 92x92x25, 1900rpm, 19.6dBA, 33.1CFM, 0.32A, BL038 SPONSORS - none INITIAL PROBLEMS 1) if use glass window GPU can be placed only on the bottom; 2) NR200P not fit water cooling on the top - need modify top; 3) RTX 3080 require PSU minimum 750W and on market exists only one SFX PSU with 750W; 4) GPU and PSU produce hot air that must be vented from the case - need to place additional fans, and turn PSU direction to hot air out; ACTION and FINAL SHOTS I uploaded all shots at the same time, becouse my build is already finished. 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.
  3. 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
  4. Welcome to my latest project log, The project name i've gone for is "Crystal" The name and the whole concept is based on some new products that's coming/come to market this month that i'll be using in this build. The Game Rock 3080 from Palit is one of the inspirations for the theme. I like to try new things with every build and hopefully learn something new, so along with the usual painting, 3D printing and other techniques I'll also be using texture plastics and resin for the first time as the main 3D printing material. This allows for lots of clear detail and very solid parts when using the correct resin kindly supplied by monocure3d. The case i'm using is a CoolerMaster MasterCase SL600M, mainly aluminium with a glass window on the main side. I plan to sand, polish, paint and try some other things with the aluminium parts and any plastic. Plenty of space on the inside for watercooling however, I will only be watercooling the CPU for now with a CoolerMaster AIO and might do a full custom loop when GPU blocks are available. Wouldn't be a crystal build without some Crystals, so I will be making some from resin and possibly standard filaments like PLA. The lighting is alway an important part of my builds, I'm not a rainbow RGB lover however I do love RGB for the amount of colour options it gives you without needing to replace all the parts when you fancy a change. Thanks to the timing of this build i'll be entering into the Case Mod World Series 2020 #CMWS2020. Hope you enjoy the build log and final result.

  5. Aaaah feels good to be back man... Hey everyone! My name is Alessandro, for those who don't know me, I am the winner of last year's Tower Mod 3rd place. I was super happy to get there as it was my third attempt at this amazing competition, but this year's going to be about beating myself at my own game! Project A.R.E.S. (acronym for Astral Robot Enclosure System) will be based on the Cooler Master C700M and, as the name suggests, it will be a project themed around SciFi design and space. In particular, my main inspiration will be Robot from Netflix's Lost in Space, from which I will take some elements and merge them into the build. It won't be some sort of Lost in Space themed mod, I will just take some inspiration and make my own thing out of it. First of all, I would like to give a big shout out to my partners and sponsors, because without them nothing of all this would be possible: HWLegend Modding - Trippodo - Cooler Master - INNO3D - Asrock - XPG ADATA - Bitspower Now let's go through some pics of the parts I'll be using, then start with first disassembly of the case and preparatory modifications! The case will be rotated by 90° so that I can get a more symmetric look with the handles at the front and back, as you have seen I have two C700M's just because the first one had a faulty LED strip and CM was so great that they sent me a second case instead of just a replacement! So I had the idea of taking the top panel from the first case and replace the bottom one with it, so now I have the same panel front and back. Since I started using a CNC for my projects, I obviously had to start working more on 3D software than just directly on the panels, so that took a looong time to get used to and still trying to get the hang of it, but I must say I almost got used to this by now. Anyway, I start taking some measurements and doing some trial and error on all the internal pieces. Now to the first real modifications: I took my beloved aluminum L-profiles and splattered them all around the internal frame taking advantage of all those threaded holes that the C700M offers... so handy! This will allow me to mount all the internal panels and give me some extra clearance between those and the external ones to fit stuff like rad/fans and other fancy stuff that will come later. The initial idea was to have what I would call "suspension arcs" attached to the handles, those would suspend the case from the floor and create some sort of orbital ring look around the case. I made a couple templates of those arc out of MDF and well, I realized it wasn't really a great idea as it looked silly no matter how I put them. So I almost totally scrapped that idea and went another way, which you'll see in later updates.
  6. 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
  7. Hi everybody, I’m here to present you AMG Project. After Delta and Ferrari I ideated this new project. As always I was inspired by my great passion for motors. This is based on Cooler Master Cosmos C700P and the difference with my other works is that I cut the case and I created side pods in 3D. I want to thank all my sponsors that made possible this Case Mod.

  10. Coming Soon, 221-206BC and beyond, all the way to CMWS 2020! AD Welcome to my worklog of the Scratch build entry for the CMWS2020.Once again I am delving into the history books for this one.I simply love doing this.This one is dedicated to the "QIN" Dynasty and the Terracotta Army which was found in 1974.Much much more to come...The sketches are just the first rough ideas.Details, details and many more dteials, all true to the theme and handmade as usual! Thats the promise.
  11. So yeah, finally another mod and my first entry into the CMWS!! This mod should have been an entry into the CMWS19, but for reasons wasn't finished. This year it will be! Project Al(uminium) because it'll be the most-used material in the build. As an old build of mine was named after the copper theme (Project Cu), I thought I'd keep with the periodic table naming. The mod will be based off the Cooler Master SL600M with a theme based on the patterns that CM has been using in their latest several cases. The main internal structure will be replaced by custom aluminium panels. There will be alot of polished metal (yikes, first time polishing to a high-mirror finish...!) No colours: all black and polished metal. Only colour will be added by LED lighting like the fans and LED strips.

  12. Hi! My name is Mickee from the Philippines also known as MadMods PC in the Modding world, I am a first timer in the World Series and the Plan is to have fun! I don't have as much details to share about my project just yet so creating this brief intro for the worklog should be a start. I will be back with more details about what I will be working on really soon. Thanks!
  13. Hello friends, Guided by the need for the ultimate workstation machine, I throw myself into a project that consists of a complete change of the interior and a bit of the exterior of the CM Cosmos 25th edition case. As you can see in the renders below, I plan to insert a large EKWB 540 radiator and provide airflow through the air tunnel with 4x120mm fans. This project also includes a complete EKWB LC system for which I will specially customize the custom distro/reservoire.

Thanks for following! BR neSSa
  14. Hello guys, this is not a classic case-mode, I will make changes to one of my favorite projects "ZOROG" which will still find a place on my desk in the form of a computer for entertainment. I will totally change the inside and outside of the case, using the same hardware with some minor updates. And this time I thank all the companies that supported my work! On the 3D renders below you can see an idea of what it will look like: Thank you for watching! BR, neSSa
  15. 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!
  16. Hello, my name is Yuri, I am from Moscow. My job is building and customizing computers at ‘Man-Made’. I first got interested in computer hardware at the age of 12. This is my first modding contest. This computer is designed as a knights armor, plated with 24K-gold and leather. Naturally, completely water-cooled. I was designing the project, I was inspired by the knightly armor of the Middle Ages. But real armor doesn't have to be glossy; it protects the body in battles. But the inner filling must be powerful and glossy, cooled by the blood of a dragon!

  18. Hello friends, My name is Felipe and I'm known as Samamba! For my new project I decided to use the theme SciFi (Science Fiction) as the theme. I thought of something with a very clean and functional look as you can see in my project. The interior in the project image is only illustrative, since it was designed before receiving the cabinet, and I could only think of the interior after having the cabinet in hand to make the measurements. For this project I have the support of Cooler Master America Latina and Team Group. BR Felipe Samamba The project Cooler Master gifts Victim
  19. My name is Nick Van Guth AKA Termuda Square, I was one of last years apprentice league winners and I’m back for a second year.... but this time I’ve came more prepared then last year, as I’ve been planning in my mind and with cad modeling since the end of last years event. As well as a few things I will be unveiling later, but keeping private for now. One rule in modding I’ve always stuck to is remake it till it’s perfect, if it doesn’t look good from 1mm away it’s not worth showing. So this year my build will still be focused on details, but new details ! This years Mod will be 80% tower mod as 20% scratch Mod, I will be changing up my style from sleek and minimal to dark and creepy and mysterious. Main themes - Dark Magic, Gold, Dark, Experimental, greek statues, Along with all new frame parts to cut weight, while maintaining strength of the rebuilt Sl600m chassis. - Main tools used - - Cnc/auto cad used - 3D Resin printer - Nova3D - co2 laser - Paint booth & paint guns - airbrush - & more -Products & Sponsors- - CoolerMaster Sl600m - CoolerMaster V850 - Alphacool : Liquid cooling - ModMyMods : Liquid cooling - Gscustomz : Cables - HyperX : Memory, Ssd’s - Kingstontechnology : m.2 drives - Peripherals - CoolerMaster - 3D printers and resin ( all supplied by Nova3d ) Social media’s -Facebook’s- https://www.facebook.com/people/Nick-Van-Guth/100008128274557 https://m.facebook.com/TermudaSquareTech/ Instagram https://www.instagram.com/termudasquare/?hl=en And thank you for reading my log, I look forward to seeing what everyone creates.
  20. My name is Nick Van Guth AKA Termuda Square, and I’m back for yet another year! Last year I was lucky enough to be chosen as one of the apprentice league winners, so I’m back and I’m even more prepared then last year. Besides my tower mod which you can find here https://worklogs.coolermaster.com/topic/28822-termuda-square-blδck-mδgic/ I will be modding a few peripherals to match the theme of my mod. - Mod theme - The theme will be dark yet sleek mixed with experimental techniques, along with hints of gold and a creepy occult Type vibe. - Peripherals modded - - CoolerMaster MM831 - CoolerMaster MK850 I look forward to seeing everyone’s creations until then, happy modding !
  21. Hello! Racing car project 311GTE Model>cooler master masterbox mb311l Concept: A new design of the MasterBox MB311L case is focused on giving the feeling as like as Japanese car engine room with Titanium nut, stainless pipe simulated as intercooler pipe, Defi volt gauge which is a necessary auto part of racer, taking account into practical usability after installation by the modification does not make the case’s appearance loses its unique. Its metallic grey makes it looks simple and elegant, and orange makes it looks extremely hot. Both colors on the case make it looks mix and match. Its design conveys the case modification to look simple which everyone can assemble it when having only the simple tools such as screwdriver, drill, cutting tool, and spray paint, focusing on making the work looks perfect and meets the expectation and concept.

Technical background: The radiator - 6-12-2020 7. Taking the radiator for a spin (ish) - 24-12-2020 8. Finalizing, booting and test results Intro Hi boys and girls, a newcomer to the scene. I am very excited to be here and to take you on my journey through modding. My name is Yorick de Ron and I’m a Dutchie. 30 years old atm (pfff). I started modding around the year 2018, which obviously got totally out of hand. I started modding under the name Quantum Systems in 2019 after redoing my own build over and over again to practice. I’m a mechanical engineer in my daily work I’m always around big factories and that knowledge I intend to use in this build. This worklog is going to evolve around the technical aspect of passively cool a water cooled PC. I did my calculations, but the final result will actually show me if the idea works yes or no. Makes me very curious, excited and extra motivated to get this done before January and see it boot with maybe an OC ? I hope u guys enjoy it as much as I do, happy modding! Project design Sitting next to your PC which would be entirely quiet… That’s what got me thinking, what options do we have which makes a PC silent? - Passively cooled PC’s.. But those chunky aluminum blocks? Big nope! - Water cooling is pretty silent, without the fans, also looks nice? - How to create a radiator which doesn’t require fans? - Radiator: Water transports the heat to a different location where it can disperse. - Can I combine this? Water cooling and a passively cooled radiator? - One way to find out! I’m going to mod on a CM Q300P which is a small-form factor case (approx. 24L excl. panels). This case is very modular, which allows me to use the case in different angles. It also looks very nice, but I will have some work to improve the air contact. ⚙Hardware & Sponsors Maingoodies: MB ASrock X299M Extreme4 – micro-ATX CPU Intel Core i5-7640X - Quad core, 4GHz-4,2GHz, IHS sanded, delidded, OC t.b.d.

Creation process I did the designing of a custom passive heat exchanger in 4 weeks (not full time). Building up the design step by step, to make sure I wouldn’t make mistakes in my model, which the CNC would follow as I program it to do so. Redrawn the entire layout 5 times, but this was my final drawing which eventually would be molded into a 3D model. I’m using an Acrylic block 349x359x30mm to make water channels with a CNC machine. The counterpart will be made out of copper as one big cool block, which creates a surface area where the heat spreaders will be soldered on. A local middle-age school allowed me to use their CNC machine for my operations, fantastic! Action shots Hardware to be used Assembled to try some different set-ups, rotations of the case, and planning for the cooling I have a small video of the CNC in action milling the Acrylic block, but can't upload that here. So you can check it out on Facebook and here are some pictures ROG Strix RX 5700XT with the EK waterblock: Final result of the acryllic part of the heat exchanger. Here you can get an idea already of the flow directions. I will share a deeper insight of the cooling solution later in the build log on how it works.
