  1. Finally, I get to build something for myself The opportunity presented itself after Cooler Master sent me their new Mastercase 5 ($109.99) to evaluate and brainstorm retail accessories / bolt-on custom parts as part of their "Make it Yours" campaign. The Mastercase Pro is the same chassis as mastercase 5, but includes window panel and top cover for $139.99. If I kept waiting for personal time to build a PC for myself, it would have never happened due to lack of free time. I have to admit, I didn't like the Mastercase at first. I captured my mod zoo staff/friends . I feel Cooler Master missed a lot of details that could have made the case even better. Especially since CM marketed it as "modular" and designed for DIY liquid cooling. It falls 40% from it's marketing pitch, but the overall build quality and finish is outstanding and eventually won me over after dismantling and re-assembling the case. Here is my final thoughts about the Mastercase, keeping in mind that I look at cases from perspective as PC Customizer and Case Modder. RAVES: *Overall Build Quality, Fit & finish. *Top panel / cover design options are nice. *Modular HD/SSD tray design and mounting options are best to date. *240/360/280 radiator option for front is nice. My suggestions REVISIONS: *Top radiator mounting location should be offset, to clear DDR slots on some motherboards *100% Riveted chassis?! I understand using rivets over screws to save time in manufacturing, but at minimum, the mid section floor should be removable for better access. *Lack of Water pump and reservoir mounting. CM's competitors started embracing DIY cooling market over year ago, by including mounting options for reservoirs and water pumps. *Mastercase 5/ Pro window panel is very flimsy. The "smoked" poly window is bluish/purple and has very poor clarity for viewing inside the case. Inspiration for the custom painted exterior will be the 1970 Porsche 917 from Steve McQueen's "Le Mans" movie. His 917 from the movie was chassis #022 and purchased in 1970 from Porsche by Steve McQueen's movie production company, Solar Productions. It was also the company that would bring the movie "Le Mans" to the big screen. This is the car that McQueen's character, Michael Delaney, starts the race in, and "crashes" late in the race, "writing the car off." The car that was crashed was really a Lola T-70, painted and rebodied, to look like a 917. Many innovations in cinematography, were first tried in this movie. They even went so far, as to weld brackets to the front frame work of the 917, so they could mount a camera to shoot Steve, and the other drivers, in the cockpit. I'll replacing the Mastercase 5 steel side panel with this clear side panel window, I'll replacing the Mastercase top grill panel with this clear "moon roof" style top window, http://mnpctech.com/cooler-master-mastercase/mastercase-top-window-panel-clear.html Cooler Master Mastercase 5 Chassis assembled with final coat of Gulf Racing Blue paint from 1970 Porsche 917 race car Porsche 917 inspired graphics are finished on the Cooler Master Mastercase 5 / Pro. Next stage is clearcoating everything.
  2. Hey there everyone! Well I have been busy lately! Finished up Grey Matter, started my Fractal Design build, and also started a 4x2CNC build. I took the case feet from my fractal build and moved them to this project because I have a good idea for them. I want to thank the companies so far supporting this build, I appreciate it! About this project: Again I was looking into color schemes that are not often worked with, I wanted to do something unique and creative like Grey Matter, so I decided to use a ROG theme!:thumb: Haha just playing!:duh: I decided on a glossy brushed copper and white theme, I am calling it Cyprus 29. I came up with the name because the first copper mines in the world were located on the island of Cyprus and 29 is the atomic number on the periodic table for copper. I have some copper sheet, white paint and acrylic, brushed copper vinyl wrap. I will be using white Primochill revolvers with 1/2" copper tubing and white pastel liquid. Its going to be an interesting theme and a lot of fun to do! Don't forget to look here for quick links to my updates! I hope to add videos along the way as well!

PC Modders Mesh Sheets. Rubber U-channel panel edge and window trim. Alright. With all that out of the way, lets take a look at this beast of a case. First thing I did was get it out of the box and tear some of it down to start planning the component orientation. Thanks again to Cooler Master North America for the case! :thumb: In case you missed them on he Black Frost Fractal build, here are the beast mode case feet from Casefeet.com. I am going to make copper rings for them. One gripe I found about the case is these glued in filters, they are a pain when it comes to modding. So I proceeded to razor them all out. For the component orientation I decided on, I will be using the small case on the bottom as a pedestal. and I also flipped the case so the back door is now the front window so I can flip the motherboard 270

Corsair gives you 3/16" gap around the plate from the factory for airflow. This modification will be huge improvement for cooling your system. The front plate pulls off without any effort.

The best tape is 3M Scotch 233+ Green tape 3M Scotch Green 233+ masking tape is used by Automotive Paint Professionals. It's highly conformable to curved surfaces on both metal and plastic. It has good adhesion in a large range of weather conditions. It will peel off without leaving any sticky residue. Most Auto Body Supply Stores should be stocking this tape. It's also readily available online. 3M Scotch *233+ tape has a premium price compared to other tapes, but it performs the best*
  5. Welcome! I am now back with another build to work with. This worklog is originally from TheModZoo but i wanted to share it with you guys aswell for opinions. Original link: http://themodzoo.com/forum/index.php?/topic/1002-phantom-820-mod-big-beast-by-jompenleet/ My previous build was a Phantom 410 by NZXT It was a fun build wich also was very appreciated by alot of you. Wich lead into the oppurtunity of this Phantom 820 mod. At this time i i've been building in NZXT cases because i really dig their futuristic look with lots of internal space to work with. NZXT is also very good with listening to their customers reviews & opinions and i believe that they really try to do their best satisfying all their customers, no matter what sort of components they intend to put in their cases.* That is why the NZXT cases are created compatible with lots of different radiator options etc. I would love to give you some rendered pictures of what my goals is with this project but every time i've tried making something in photoshop it ends up looking like a cartoon bisquit. So you're just going to have to check back every now and then to watch the progress here. Anyway i am thinking of giving this case a red interior to match with a grey paint i will be applying to the outside of the case.* Why is this project called The Big Beast? If you check back every now and then you will see why. All of the work you'll see here on these following pages will be made at my house without any 2000$ tools. I Believe That Minor Changes can have a BIG impact if done right Hope you have a great time beeing a part of my progress with this project. Hardware for this build: NZXT Phantom 820 - Black (not for long) (CA-PH820-M1) Intel Core i7 4770k Hashwell (i'll be giving some video tutorials on how to overclock this badboy when this project is nearly finished) (BX80646I74770K) Asus Maximus VI Hero ATX (MAXIMUS VI HERO) Asus Geforce GTX 780 3GB Reference Design (With an EK backplate) (GTX780-3GD5) Corsair 16GB (4x4GB) CL9 1866Mhz DOMINATOR PLATINUM CMD16GX3M4A1866C9) Corsair HX 750W 80+ Gold Modular (With sleeving from Million Dollar PC) (CP-9020031-NA) Corsair Hydro H80i (Custom Loop from EKWB) (CW-9060008-WW) Samsung SSD EVO Desktop Kit 840 -Series 120GB (MZ-7TE120KW) Creative Sound Blaster Z (With some changes to the looks of the card) (SOUND BLASTER Z) Cooling: EK Coolstream RAD XT 360 EK CSQ13/19mm, Black Ek Supremacy Acetal + Nickel EK-FC Titan SE Backplate EK RES x3 250 Alphacool D5 PUMP VPP655T12 barbed EK-PSC 90degrees angled fittings Black EK Coolant Blood Red - 1000ml Masterkleer 19/13 Clear High-Flexible Tubing Some of the modding materials for this build: Dremel Rotary Discs Smoked Acrylic Sheet Black, white & Silver Pop Rivets Round Modders Mesh 3M Di-Noc Carbon Fibre U-Channel Molding Silver PC Case Tumbscrew's 6/32 thread All this great stuff can be found at http://mnpctech.com/ Sleeving for this build: SLEEVE SMALL - COLOR-X SLEEVE SMALL - SHADE 19 Cable Management Clips Crimp Contacts MALE for ATX, PCIE All of this from Nils at http://en.mdpc-x.com/ This is another mod by Jompenleet! Case is sponsored byNZXT. Modding materials sponsored by MNPCTech Enjoy! This just arrived from NZXT Corp California. They had a local reseller send it to me though. Bigger in person than i thought it would be. They even attached a box to organize all the case screws for the case. Cred to NZXT (Y) I really missed this when i got the older Phantom 410 case. Backside Rear side. Sorry you have to tilt your head* Lets dig in fellow monkeys! As you can see, this case will give me plenty of room to work with. Whatever i intend to do with this case. 200mm fan in the side 200mm fan in the front 200mm fan in top. 140mm rear fan These are the fans they included as stock fans. You can put way more fans in there though Rear dust filter for the PSU. Covers 120 & 140mm fans. Now... Let the modding begin! Check back for updates. First off will be dremeling, painting & sleeving.
