      Due to technical issues, the topic on "AM4 Socket Support" has disappeared. We apologize for any inconvenience this has caused and we are trying our best to have this topic back up as soon as possible.   As we read in the topic, there is a lot of discussion going on when the new brackets will be arriving. We can tell you now that the brackets will be ready for pre-order on our CM Store EU tomorrow and will be ready for shipment around the 16th of May.   You can continue the discussion in this newly created topic:

    FINISHED!!! !!! Here is the link to the final video that I my buddy shot for me, this evening, watching me go over the whole system! Walkthrough of the whole system And here are the final pictures! The computer component intakes: The bottom of the system, complete with new casters and a bottom view of the intake fans: The carpeted Subwoofer floor panel: The Final floor panel, which also hides the wiring: Aaaaand... The finished product! I hope you all like it! I'm finalizing my youtube video tonight, so that I can have it ready for my official, finalized entry into the competition. Once that is finished, I will post that link here, as well. It will be 3 hours long, so grab some popcorn if you decide to watch! Thanks for all of your support, everyone! It's going to be an interesting week, coming up. With the excitement of having this entered into competition and the uh... not so excitement of being homeless, come next Wednesday. I guess we'll all see what happens next, right?

    5-1-2017 Update! Down to the wire! That's right, I only have two more days to complete my project and finalize my submission to the Cooler Master Case Mod World Series. Here's the latest bevy of photos. Partially, to hide the ugliness of some of my cuts and partially to help cut out any exterior light sources, I added a flexible door strip to the front of the system. For the intake fans, beneath the seat. Finalizing the interior wiring up front. The Subwoofer is now carpeted. Building the last bit of floor covering and wire covering. Painting the remaining panels (except for the back). What's left? Well... not much, thankfully. I don't think I'll have enough time to cover the interior insulation properly, so I may go with how those currently look. Which, given the nature of the lighting of the interior, those shiny doors actually help to increase visibility within the unit. I will be replacing the casters. I don't like the ones that I have used and I bought some larger, swivel type casters. Hopefully, they will improve the overall mobility of the case. And now... I'm off to the dentist... so I probably, won't get any more of it completed, tonight. Thanks!

    4-23-2017 Update! Almost done. I've had an insane schedule at work, recently, so progress has been slow. It will be finished my the May 3rd deadline... but, it may not be everything that I wanted it to be. Of course... I have a ridiculous week ahead of me, this week, having to work out of town for a few days and having a few more, really long days! Here we go: The process of the getting the component area enclosed. Painting the exterior. Working on the cabling. Mapping out and cutting the intake portions and floor board. And how it currently looks. I think, I'm going to go with a two-tone color scheme for this. And... for a special treat, a good buddy of mine decided to stop by with his son. To say the least... I think he likes it! https://www.facebook.com/no.other.bob/videos/10154576658538526/
  8. Mod 4th: Inverted! Finished!

    I am in awe of the polish and finish of that frame! Gorgeous work!

    I will be applying the first coat of paint, this Saturday or Sunday. I may stencil in some of the logos from the components that I had used in the making of the case. Soon... very soon... this will be complete!

    Ha! That's the second Se7en reference to my case, this week! Too funny.

    I have no problems with the close quarters. It's actually, roomier than it looks. My roommate, who is 6' 4", doesn't have any issues, either. Speakers are ok, for right now. That reflective material doesn't help, but that's why I plan on putting a Microfiber cover over all of those surfaces. That should sufficiently deaden the reverb caused by the interior. As for VR, maybe in the future. I'm not a huge fan of it at the moment, due to issues with vertigo and not being able to focus well on the screens inside the goggles. Thanks, however!

    Here is the updated picture of the back of the box, as it currently is, plus a couple of "for scale" pictures.

    4-12-2017 Update! Finished up the MOST of the outer paneling. Now, it's just a matter of getting the interior finished up, along with re-working a bit of the wiring and the last of the fans. I still have to put in the final back panel, as well, that will have the last of the exhaust fans. It's nearly there! Paneling for the nose section: I know, that front door panel is a little wavy, but that will get fixed. The back, so far: From the side. Yes, I will have to fill in the gap at the top, as well. And what it's all for! Me, enjoying the system! I decided to play a little H1Z1 King of the Kill, with a couple of friends. And everything is working great!!! Thanks for tunin' in!

    4-11-2017 Update! It's getting closer to being finished! Both doors are completely covered. I just have to work on covering the silver portion of the insulation with thin carpeting. The back portion of the floor board is finally in. Although, I will still need to make the necessary cuts for Fan Ports. All but the sides of the front nose paneling have been cut and are in place. Da Photos: Cutting the holes for the fans on the doors. The cutting of the floorboard. Half of the back paneling and how the current look of the back of the system. Even with some of the paneling missing, the system does an excellent job of mitigating the sound from bleeding out and getting in. So far, with only 3 fans in operation (I blew out one of the circuits on my fan controller a while ago) the system stays relatively cool on the inside. I spent an hour or two in the system yesterday and played in it around noon, while it was a warm day. There were no apparent issues with overheating. More to come, very soon!

    4-8-2017 Update: I've managed to sneak in a few hours here and there, outside of my insane work hours as of late. Here is the progress. I have most of the insulation and outer paneling cut and in place. The insulation will get a thin coat of carpeting, so it's rather reflective at the moment, but will not be so when it is complete. Other than cutting a few more exterior panels, I just have a bit more cable routing to deal with and then sealing the component tray and getting the fans installed and routed in that area, as well. Enough talk, here are the pictures!
