Hello again every one!

I'm back again with a new build :D

I think the title pretty much says it all.


I had planed something else for the this next build but things changed in the build plan, so the build has changed a bit to suit. I had planed a build with lots of RGB lighting but that build will come later.

But for now Gears of War is in the works, Hope you all enjoy the ride. :)

anyway I will get straight into it with some build photos as I know that's what you are all here to see :P sexy pic's and mooding.


To start of I will be using a new Cooler Master, Master Case Maker 5.

The Case comes with a tin box with all the screws and other bits and two other parts that I will need to look into.
The box also has soft rubber back on it that is also magnetic. witch I think is a nice touch.

The case also comes with a Red led magnetic strip.

That archers to the ran controller that's fitted to the back of the Mo-Bo tray.



Now for some hardware info:



Mobo: R.........................?




No I don't think I'm going to say just yet.

Still so much more to show. :P

The build will have 2 of the Masteraccessory Tempered glass sided panels

Thanks again for stopping by. :)

For the PSU for this build will be the CM MasterWatt Maker 1200
Not sure if this will have the power needed for the build ?

Yer right lol :P I'm sure this beast would power every PC in my house.

This monster also comes with plenty of cables and a here is a small video
about it. Very cool.

OK time to start turning this case into many parts.

Front sound block out cover looks good and it works real well to stop most of the fan noise you get from the front of the case. on the inside it has sound dampening foam.

Fan and LED controller is mounted to the back of the motherboard tray.

This part takes a bit of effort to take of but pulling it out towards your self it should come off. it clips in at 4 points.

now you can take a screw driver and remove the top bracket.

I have also flipped the MoBo tray to the other side of the case as well as rotating it 90 degrees.

My heart almost broke before I saw the dremel come out.

 

I was in the "Case modding suck these days..... look, all the pre-purchased parts, its all about money and no skill"

But suddenly! Dremel....

"..... Oh custom fab!.... OK you're in"

 

Love it so far, If it turns out anything like your last one it'll be interesting :)

:) well then you will like the next photos. :)

 

Freak so many USB ports on that motherboard!

Yes it has lots. :)

 

 

 

 

For the GOW build I wanted to show the front of the GPU, So I have designed a bracket that I can easily change it back to the way it was just as easy as removing two thumb screws from the bracket holding the bracket to the case and two more holding the GPU to the bracket So now I can have the GPU so to facing out.

 

 

What do you think ?

Laser cutting and dremel work to add texture before painting starts.

The logo is only 80mm high so a lot of the fine detals like the lines in the teeth where lost so I hade to add them back. and I had to make a " F " for the " OF " with the dremel as it got stuffed up in the vectors some how. I have also linished to text to add texture to it once painted.

it was then sanded with some 500 grit to round of the edges to clean it up.

Later it will be panted to same as the rest of the case so it looks like a embossing finish.


Thanks again for stopping by.
