  2. Hi everyone tankian here and I'm happy to share my lastest complete project! Well this time decide to invest and buy a ITX H97 MB to do something that should already have done since the Dark Side Machine project, I always felt limited with the ATX format and now I had the financial opportunity to buy an mini-ITX and could not escape! I chose the ELITE 120 from Cooler Master to work with, I had everything in mind before I went to get it, but I had that feeling that it was going to be very small and that I would regret it ... BUT NO! Well I was super surprised with the space and saw soon that it was going to give to what it wanted to do. The concept I chose is "ALL TERRAIN", and I will not paint it in camouflage! Ahahah Basically the goal is to make the Case as beautiful and as "radical" as possible, but it also makes it even more capable and that's where the concept comes in, making the case capable of things that it originally can not. I want to improve is "image", the air circulation by adding a 240 radiator, put the cover to open otherwise, reposition the PSU elsewhere, well a date of things that may change once the project has no "guide lines "In 3D as I usually do FINAL RESULT So everything will be showed in the videos bellow: COOLER MASTER ELITE 120 - THE BEGINNING OF THE BEAST - #1 ALL TERRAIN PROJECT COOLER MASTER ELITE 120 - THE BEAST AWAKENS - #2 ALL TERRAIN PROJECT COOLER MASTER ELITE 120 - BEAST READY FOR PAINT - #3 ALL TERRAIN PROJECT COOLER MASTER ELITE 120 - PAINT DONE, MOUNTING DONE, BEAST DONE! - #4 ALL TERRAIN PROJECT COOLER MASTER ELITE 120 - MOD DONE! COMPLETE! - #5 ALL TERRAIN PROJECT So hope you guys like the final result, I'm really happy to share this with you, if you like it, share, subscribe! Best Regards Tankian!

    #3 Video Evolution in images: (Still in Update) Actual State / Sneak peak for next video: About the project, everything is going as planned and at the moment I have to do some "nails" on the side covers so they can be removable. I already have the water cooling system "bleed" (will not have tank) and being my first time in water cooling I am very satisfied with the result. Resuming next week I want, as I said in the video, to put everything together so that any changes that need to be made are made before painting.

  13. [FINISH] Project Evo - Master Case 5

    Hello, as I promissed I want to make a quick resume about Project Evo concept and plans. So speaking about the idea, basicly I'm on the Tower Mod category and like previous years I notice most tower projects never leave the "Box" concept, and for a "scracther builder" being stuck on the "box" is a bit strange so I started to think outside the "box" ( ), to be honest I really needed to think that way because was I said I cant afford all the fancy WC's system most "box" projects have, so finding a new design as really challenging since the Master Case 5 was been already so modded. So basicly the idea was finding a new way to look at the Master Case 5. So Idea found () and Project Evo born, lets see how things are going in this first video! #1 Video Images: Model 3D Evolution Actual state: Hope you like it, I'm enjoying this project alot, I'm still looking for sponsor so if you want to join this project its a good time to do it!

    Hello everyone. My name is Alberto and I'm from Portugal, its my second year at Case Mod World Series and I'm really motivated about it, I have learned so much last contest and I'm confident this year, good luck! First a little about my self and my history, I have been modding since the past 4 years in three different projects, and all three projects I evolve so much in all strands, facing a lot off problems some more hard than others but in the end I have solve all off them and that gave me a lot off knowledge. I always try to do the best with the tools I have. You can check my past projects in this links: 1- Project ATX Cube Homemade (winner off ThisIsMyPC contest by Sapphire) Worklog (in Portuguese): https://forum.zwame.pt/threads/caixa-atx-cube.859611/ 2- Project ATX Cube Style Worklog (in portuguese): https://forum.zwame.pt/threads/atx-cube-case-homemade-round-2.869996/ 3- Project tankian Worklog (in english): http://community.coolermaster.com/index.php/topic/12372-complete-page-2-cube-case-homemade-tankian-project/ ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Day 1 This worklog will be divided in days/parts, as the project progresses I will post when I got solid news to show you! Now lets talk about this new projec that have "born" because of "a need". My past project was really good for me, many problems solve and in the end I got more than I first expected, speaking only about the design, because in the pratical way I failled in some aspects, and I got that confirmation when I received a new motheboard from RMA that was bigger than my last problem showing a compatibility issue! The motherboard feeted but I didnt look cool as the old one, so I became really disapointed and decided to put the two possibilitys in mind, buy one or build one, of course building one was the first choice! At this point the Project will have a unnamed name, and the build will be based in this four concepts: - Simple - Pratical - Color - Funcional I have been doing the project in 3D SketchUp and i can tell you is really hard to make a compact case with ATX motheboards and at the same time it must be easy to set up components and to carry on for any place I want, and at the same time get low temperatures and air flow. So I started to study the best positions to make a solid and funcional structure and i ended up with this: When I finished the struture it was time to start making the outside of the case. Like my last project I wanted an acrilyc window to see the interior of the case, one thing that I love is to watch all my parts working!. All colors are just an example. Now lets see the result: Hope you guys like it and see you in the next day! Best Regards Alberto Soares aka tankian

    Day 10 Project Finished Hello everyone the project is finish and I'm really happy with the result, is true that the project could be finish sometime ago but sometimes stuff dont go was planned, in the end everything went donne and finish like I wanted. General Conclusion The project received a new name given to the subject I decided to opt already in the final part of the project now being named "Dark Side Machine". At the beginning I had the following ideas: simplicity, mobility, color and functionality. Simplicity - project through materials and tools available to all people. Mobility - project with identical dimensions and weight of an ATX tower, almost every weekend walk with her in the car and for now I didn't face any problem, 5 *. Color - red, white and black are the predominant colors in the project since i have followed the theme "Dark Side" of Star Wars. Functionality - allows excellent temperatures, cable management and easy access to inside components. Materials used for the project were essentially: - Square Aluminum Tube - Corner Aluminum pieces - Square Iron Tube - Plates Acrylic White - Plates Acrylic Transparent - Rivets and "L" corners - White and Black Paint - Vinyl Black In the end I used easy materials to find and use, was also one of the main points of the project, so you can bring other people motivated to create their own projects ate home, of course it is necessary to spend some money, but the satisfaction of doing something ours and overcome all of the dificultys you have is fantastic! I present to you the "Dark Side Machine" Day mode: Night Mode: (with special guests) I want to thank Cooler Master Portugal and SilverStone Technology for their support, without them the project would never have gotten to this point. I want to thank especially the Sofia Mota (Cooler Master) and Karin Lee (SilverStone) for being great people, my girlfriend Janete Lopes for the patience and help, to Hugo Matias for help in photo shootting, Steve Santos for patience in parts stores and all others who have followed and supported the project a big thank you! Best Regards, Alberto Soares aka tankian

    DAY 8 Hello everyone! I'm back after one month without giving news, I had some problems and that prevented me from continuing the project ... but I'm back now and full force to end this! So I decide to use Star Wars was the theme for the project, in the beginning it was my first choice, but I end up not calling it, but now I'm feelling more confident that is the right thing to use. I'm a new Star Wars fan thing and the better way I can prove how much I like it is giving this theme for this project. Let the Dark Side be with you! Well already have the cut acrylics, and tests to see if they need to do more holes or not, because the upper ventilation (air exit) The covers also already ready as you can see in the photos. Actual State Next step will be ilumination, vinils and paint details I hope you enjoy the result will not be long to complete the project and have some regret not having done already for some time, but not everything goes as we want the important thing is to finish! Best Regards. Alberto Soares
