  1. Hi there, I want to mod the Mastercase Maker 5's front I/O and make it RGB instead of just red - Is it possible to remove the entire unit from the case in order to do this? Also, anyone know if getting into the I/O component is possible or have a picture of the inside of the casing? I'm hoping that Cooler Master will make a controllable panel at some point - perhaps with the USB 2.0 removed and a 3.1 / 3.2 interface with the new connector added in its place. Heres hoping. Cheers! (Photos are just a crude reference of what I want to do...apologies for the rubbish quality)

  4. "ONI" Project

    Hi guys! My name is Matteo, from Italy! This is my second Mod and by far it has been a beautiful journey The story of this mod is crazy, actually the guys at Cooler Master sent me the Master Case after meeting at a 3d printing event in Milan and since then we started a great relationship. The theme of the mod came up in my mind after a long period of travelling with my girlfriend I present to you the "ONI" which is the japanese demon described as spirits of the dead, of the earth, of the ancestors, of vengeance, of the plague and/or famine. The reason behind this choice will remain a secret to you all. I hope you'll enjoy my work! spec list: Cooler Master Master Case Maker 5 Intel i5 7600k MSI Z270 gaming pro carbon Hyper X FURY 32gb DDR4 (4x8) MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X (SLI) MSI Limited Edition SLI Bridge 240gb SSD M.2 Kingston 240gb SSDnow 300 V Kingston 120gb SSDnow 300 V Kingston Cooler Master G750M psu Alphacool Watercooling BIG THANKS to my Sponsors: COOLER MASTER, AK INFORMATICA, AQUATUNING, MSI, HYPER X
  5. Good Day to All! I shoveled a bunch of sites with fresh modding projects and 99% of the projects are absolutely identical rectangular boxes with different lighting and liquid cooling system - if you rapidly flip through the pictures, one gets the impression that the same system unit to change the illumination color. Such a depressing state of Affairs is not very inspired. One evening came across an old book of a series of BattleTech - and had the idea to make the body in the form of a robot. Thumbing through the drawings at the end of the book and looking at pictures/screenshots/renders of the Mech Warrior games, I thought it was quite doable. The idea is not new, but such projects are few and interesting among them one. Robots in some part do not have complex shapes, also to make it possible from the available materials improvised tools without using CNC, workshop machine tools and other expensive equipment. Making a few sketches of the layout of components, I decided to stop at format motherboard mini-ITX, because even in the transition to a micro-ATX case case began to become just huge and heavy. Work in progress... Here's my video-logs. Hope the video will not tire and You will get pleasure from viewing: Part 1: Part 2: Trailer
  6. Who Am I? A bit about me; a few years ago I suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused my brain to hemorrhage. After spending a long time in intensive care I kept thinking about case modding. Before long, its all I could think about. After recovering from my injury I was left with epilepsy and brain that no longer functioned like before. I started to look at things differently. Inspiration for mods began to pop up in the oddest places. I eventually became overthrown with modding ideas and designs. Soon I decided it was time to start. Theres nothing quite like being in the grocery store and yelling, “thats it, 45 degree angles†and then running out of the store like a mad man. No matter what I was doing, it all kept coming back to case modding. Today case modding is my life and it allows me to be truly happy. For some case modding is a hobby but, for me its a lifestyle. And So It Begins: Why: I decided to do this scratch build, “Dark Matter†for several reasons. I was tired of limiting my mods to the confines of a typical sized case. There are a ton of great cases out there but, I wanted to do something my style from the ground up. The design phase began once I started getting close to completing the StarCraft Day Zero case. However, a lot of the main features for this build have been floating around my head over the last year. During the scratch build I will be using new modding techniques as well as using materials that aren't always associated with case modding. I will also implement 3D printing and some new tech in that feild. If you like seeing original creations and have a love for the truest form of modding; you're in the right place.

  7. This topic has been posted with proper authorization from its creator, Denilson Amorim, A.K.A, Link2012. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Original text by LINK2012 on the Brazilian forum "Adrenaline": http://adrenaline.uol.com.br/forum/threads/eis-como-modificar-a-cor-do-led-do-cm-storm-alcor.590380/ I bought a CM Storm Alcor and didn't like the LED colors, except for red, which made me seek for a firmware patch to make all DPI colors into red. Instead, I discovered more than how to modify the firmware, I learned out how to change colors in real time, just like on CM Storm Mizar. So, I made a little software which puts these discoveries into action. It's quite simple to use, just choose a color (plus LED mode and brightnesss) and click on Apply. To go back to Alcor's normal state, just press Default. Due to restrictions placed by the firmware, the colors aren't kept when the mouse is restarted, so there's a function for that, "Restore LED Color on Windows Startup", which adds a new task to Windows Startup so that the configurations may be applied again. I'm not great at leaving things pretty for the end-user, so the interface may be ugly to some, but anyways, I hope this software is useful, not only for Alcor's owners, but for potential owners as well. Support for CM Storm Mizar was added on 04/04/2016. Download, Development and Source Code can be found here: https://github.com/thelink2012/cmalcor/releases

  14. REDLINEelite Desk/PC MOD - Scratch Build

    I have built a few of these desks. And each time I have upgraded and learned from mistakes. This something I love doing. I love computers and I love wood working. I use to build houses and desks so I have learned a few things I started out with 2 sheets of MDF board. First, screwed top and mid section together to make sure the hole was the same size Time to build the sides, backs, and fronts. A digital picture frame was going to show desk name but decided not to install that there. I lost many pictures due to HDD crashing. But built the box connected to top piece. Glue the inner trim down. The glass will sit on that Made a mount for Picture frame Project was put on hold for a little while. Cut 4 1/4 inch holes for 120mm fans. That tan thing was a support in a kids play table i found. cut it up to fit a 12 inch neon behind Mounted the box/top to the bottom of the desk and realized what I did wrong So I did what I could to make it work Now it starting to look like a desk Time for some paint I bought the wrong trim but I made it work. I think it came out great Custom switch panel Again, I have lost many pictures but here it is with hardware inside. Doesn't look too bad. Im sorry again for the lack of pictures. here is the desk up and running and there is more to come. Modded a sealed loop to cool it and got some new hardware. I have a few pictures of the desk as it sits right now. Time for some upgrading that was long overdue. Carbon Fiber vinyl the entire inside box. New mother board tray covered Got my Custom vinyls made just for this desk And this monster still is not finished. But for now She looks good. New build coming soon. Thank you looking
  15. Hello! I just purchased the HAF X and I decided to add a white LED strip to the inside of the case. I know that the votlage of the red LED on the front is 2v. And my LED strip is 12v. That obviously can't work, so I need suggestions! A friend told me I could use one of the power supply's cables with 12v and connect the strip to that cable, but I'm not really sure about that. Help would be very much appreciated.
  16. Hard to capture the effect on camera because of the 4D, but hopefully when i do a YouTube vid you will see it better had lots of ideas for what to do with the MECH, but short on time so i stuck with this one, its a great keyboard for modding thanks to the removable plate, same goes for the matching headset and mouse (Reaper & Pulse-R) not sure when but i will be working on the headset and mouse at some point.
  17. The COLD WAR BUILD

    From the album Derek Smith Cooler Master Builds

    This was the very first professional work that I had done. I was inspired my Bill Owen of MNPCTECH's digital Camo Build and wanted to out do his with a Woodland Camo build that was from my time in the US Military. Yes it was a secret competition.. After a few times showing it, It only place 3rd place twice in The OCN Mod of the Month, and then 5th place Mid Tower division in the Cooler Master Case Modding Contest of 2009. I started the CMSSC after that and the Cooler Master Storm Scout Club had been made in a Vain attempt to keep my mod alive. The Club went viral and still goes on today under different Management. over 3 Million Hits served.. Semper Fi.. Do or Die.
