  3. 疯狂麦克斯

    2015年华纳兄弟推出《疯狂的麦克斯:狂暴之路》,这是《疯狂麦克斯》系列电影的第四部。同年又推出了疯狂麦克斯游戏,身为电影迷的我果断选择玩这个游戏。在游戏过程中,发现里面的战车太帅太炫酷,所以这次酷冷MOD大赛就采用 《疯狂麦克斯》的元素来打造一台属于自己战车。 经过不停的切割、喷漆、雕刻等过程,最终完成了战车的外观,它的每一个细节都充满信仰,每一个配件都是精挑细选,这次战车的制作经历了很长时间,有很多人帮忙,最后感谢一下这次酷冷大赛能够让我们有机会发挥,展示一下自己的才华,也帮助我们完成了《疯狂麦克斯》战车的梦想。 詳細的工作日志链接:http://group.jd.com/thread/20000001/21125196/20000393.htm http://group.jd.com/thread/20000001/21126836/20000393.htm
  4. 掌控者

    3月份看到酷冷至尊MOD大赛报名,就尝试着去报名。作为一个懂一些硬件,第一次想做MOD的新人来说难度很大。 掌控者,这个是看到家里的茶几,想到的,茶几很简单,透明的玻璃桌面,让我想到,将机箱植入的想法。营造一个生活环境,我们就是那个世界的掌控者,可以掌控里面的所有变化。 期初,有想过往古风的风格走,但是最终没找到很好的素材。加上一些琐碎的事情,用了两天做出来的,最终做得比较简单。 别人都说,一花一世界,其实一屋一世界。这个简单的房间里,就是一个世界。我们可以随意改变环境,设置场景。很简单。 詳細的工作日志链接:http://group.jd.com/thread/20000001/21130296/20000393.htm

  6. Alcoholic Monster

    Fridge serves as case and cooling to chill the alcohol-cooled system (liquid cooling using alcohol). Many people in the past have had many qualms about building a computer within a fridge. However we will begin this project to show the possibility of this idea. We also want to make the cooler serve as a support for one side of a wooden desk (other side will be cabinets). the desk will feature a foot rest, a slide out keyboard/mouse tray, and both a monitor and soundbar integrated into the desktop itself. We also plan to cove the top with a mousepad material with a Monster Energy Logo printed onto it. However, due to our limited time constraints, we may not be able to do this part. EDIT***: So on the last day, the forums decide to let me add more posts onto my own project, so instead i will add a google docs link with the rest of my worklog. Alcoholic Monster Google docs worklog because CoolerMaster is stupid Also adding videos... WARNING! has profanity SPONSERED BY:
  7. Bastion

    Bastion Overwatch Starting on my new project, this time i will build Bastion from the computer game Overwatch. This will be fully 3D printed. Bastion will have Blue LEDS in his head and torso, rotating head, and be able to speak. 3D Printer This project will be printed with a Makerbot replicator 5th Gen printer. - 0.2 layer hight - 30% infill - Supports - Raft Printed with PLA 1,75mm Hardware ASrock Beebox-s - Intel i5-6200U - 8GB DDR4 - M.2 SSD 256GB The motherboard will be taken out of its orginal beebox-s enclosure and use it in Bastions torso. Planning This case will be about 70cm high and printed in 259 parts, some parts will be combined together with printing, rest will be glued together. After all parts are printed i will use sandpaper,sprayfiller and paint to get a smooth surface and the correct color on the model. The computer i will use for this project is a ASRock Beebox-s barebone. Will also make a displaystand that i can use for LAN-parties Progress Here are some parts that are done printing This project will take some time. Some of the biggest parts will take about 25-30 hours to print, the smaller parts will only take 1-3 hours of printing.
  8. Project Gemini

    Hi everybody, so this Is my first time entering this competition. I'm pretty new to pc case building and modding and I only have one bigger project I've completed earlier so this will be alot of fun and off course a competition makes it even more interesting. I will be trying a special solution for the radiator mounts since i will make them as "one" unit with a sort of Push-Pull-Push configuration with the fans. This will require some pretty unusual mounting but i have an idea that I will try out and make work on this build. Feel free to let me know what you think of this idea (you can look at the drawings of what I mean). I've just started the scratch build I will enter in this competition so I will try to post new pictures of the progress as soon as I get stuff done. Hopefully you will like what I'm doing and I'm always open to constructive feedback and ideas, so don't hesitate to comment the build if you have any questions or anything you like to say The drawings I've added to this log are here to give you an idea of the final product of what I'm making so some things will probably change during the build and the colours are not decided yet. I was even thinking about making it a "Hotline Miami" colour theme at once but I will wait and see how i feel about that after a while. Hope you will enjoy my worklog and good luck to everyone out there!
  9. 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
  10. GSW CYBORG

    Hi Everyone I Am Nenad, and im representing Green Shield Workshop in this scratch build. Green Shield is a workshop specialized in making custom pieces of arms and armour, historically accurate and custom designed. We also tend to experiment outside the established armouring practice, making projects based on medieval, Sci-Fi, Steampunk or other theme or genre. The Workshop developed from the Green Shield Armoury, by experimenting with new techniques and materials. Thusly, Green Shield Labs is a part of the Workshop dedicated to research and development of new technologies to implement into an old craft. Therefore we are here today With our 1st scratch build, and our second work on pc case ever. We made dragon mod of Cooler Master Case 5 last year ( i will attach photo) for Cooler Master Balkan, and now we decided to move to something different. We called it Cyborg, and it will be all hand made in steel, using a lot of old and new armoring techniques, with servo engines, automatic front panel, water cooling etc etc. Idea came on last IT fair in September in Belgrade when we were guests at Cooler Master Make it yours stand, with our Dragon PC case. We already started build about month and a half ago. and i will soon start to post all production photos. We didnt had any sponsors this year beside Cooler Master Balkan, and they provided us with fans, water coolers, PSU and a lot of support. we still dont know exactly what we are gonna put in it, but this is preliminary hardware : PSU- Cooler Master V1000 Cooler master Water Cooling (we are gonna modify this actually) Nepton 240m, Nepton 120 Fans- Cooler Master Jerflo 120 Intel i5 6600K Motherboard - Gygabyte Ga-Z170- gaming K3 GPU- Gigabyte nVidia GeForce GTX 960 4GB SSD Hyperx 240gb we will choose ddr these days Hope you'll like it! These 2 photos were our 1st and only mod ever. Pictures below them are our current project CYBORG Drawings
  11. 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.

  12. https://youtu.be/YRK6j18TY0k Preview trihexa 666 final product. About me : Concept : The concept is to Design something completely out of the ordinary using material or means that has never been used in the computer case mod scene and to introduce something unique to the field keeping in mind to keep the cost as low as possible so that anyone can build something cool that can match or even exceed the looks of a regular pricey build with the expensive luxuries that most new modders tend to lack that keeps them form ever trying. So i thought why not do an Assemble art, something the PC case mod scene has seen less of, and to do that using old used vehicle parts and scrap metal. throughout this build, the aspects of assemble art , sculpting, fiberglass and some techniques of painting is used accordingly to complete the design intended. The Design : I have always been fascinated by dragons, mythical beasts of destruction and power that has always been in stories told almost all around the world, and those used in most of the movies, games or even anime that i have come across that has used dragons in many shapes and forms. so this fascination and interest in these fantasy based creatures led me to design this form of the skeletal structure of a wayvern dragon and use it in combination of sci_Fi and mythical aspects to create one cool looking beast that is ready to rip someone apart . 01. this is a completely different shape than what you usually see on a computer case which in my opinion is the whole reason of the scratch build. to build shapes and forms that you usually don't see on stock computers off the shelf. 02. i wanted to build a custom water cooling that can enhance the looks of this mod by a huge scale, but sadly my budget is not that great coming into this build and importing things like custom water pumps, clamps and so on which is hard to find here is out of the question, so i kept that in mind as well to make it look as good as possible and leave enough space unseen, so it can be later on upgraded to a custom water cooling array if i ever get a chance or resources . 03. The components attached to the rig should be better and new micro itx parts with dual SSD drives and a new better graphics card that can enhance the performance with less heat issues and with them the whole custom cooling array must be adjusted accordingly for maximum visual and performance preferably a master air maker 8 or a v8gts, but currently that kinda tech is out of my reach but i will not let that little nuance get to me, from finishing this mod so i used the components of the old gaming rig i have and fitted it with a new cm seidon 120v water-cooler and jetflo red fans "The ribs on the front side of the casing can be lifted up and extended fully to do any type of upgrade". "Enough with the theatrics, the jig is up, lets get to work captain hook!" The Material : The material that is used in this build are used vehicle parts like chains razor wheels, engine wheels, shock absorbers' and scrap metal like barrel lid sealing rims etc, For the head i wanted to go to a more traditional approach, because the head is what defines a dragon and its fierceness so using earthen clay used in pottery the mold is sculptured and then using fiberglass resin a proper mask is made. this will give us more flexibility in wiring and using light effects as well as reduce weight to balance the whole structure. i will later explain this in detail with pictures. Step 01- Gathering proper material and creating the basic design. (April 26th) To gather material a visit to some of the local scrap yards was needed. creating an assemble art is not so simple like the usual build where you can always Pre-plan everything and start building it. the definition of an assemble art is to use the exact shapes and forms of the stuff that man made, be it may an engine of a motor bike or a tire of a car and use them to form a sculpture or a shape using those parts that has natural shapes to them in a creative way. so to conclude there is no exact part that i can say would work, everything is a piece of art hidden in themselves, a definitive shape. and each and every assemble art is unique in its own way. so what we were looking for was those shapes hidden among the metal rubble that can form TriHexa in all its glory. haha posting all these golden material would look like trash to some so i will post only the ones that was chosen in this build and later on do a detaild explanation on where each part is used. so the material that has been picked was brought back and i used some rust removing chemical as well as kerosene and liberal application of coca cola to remove all the grime rust and grease from the most obvious parts. keep in mind that when the build is halfway done i intend to do a thorough sanding and cleaning again before applying a primer paint and putty that is used on vehicles. its a gruesome sight so ill just get on with it. I will post photos of the 35% finished build and do a backwards explanation on how its made. before the explanation, i should state that the hardest part of this design was restraining myself to keep this build in a smaller and compact scale as possible so it can stand in almost any place a regular tower design can stand. the possibilities of building a larger and way cooler looking dragon out of bigger vehicle parts were endless but i had to make it look cool and practical at the same time so this is the best size i came up with and the lack of better resources played a bigger part in most of the choices made as i was only able to start this project on the latter parts of last month so i had to improvise in many ways as i can. The tools that were used here are : 01. A Grinder 02. A welding machine. 03. A drill 04. Carving Tools (Sculpting tools) 05.Day today tools like the hammer screwdrivers etc. No automated equipment were used in this build what so ever other than the hand held devices mentioned above. and its certified 100% built from hand. The following images are obviously self explanatory, but ill describe them anyways. so first off, after scaling everything up the old inner shell of a tower casing was cut apart, This will be used horizontally in the build and it is the whole length of the rib cage. it should be stated that i used this specific type of casing other than making a custom support case so this computer can be upgraded on a later stage at will without any hindrance and to avoid loosing what valuable little time i have. the cut off part of the casing was reinforced with quarter inch steel rods for extra support and later on to help with the welding. (The welding seams might not be the best looking ones in the world but it got the job done considering most of the tools were gazillion years old that i rented or burrowed and i am thankful to them ). after cutting off some vents for where the fans are mounted, another steel rod was welded down. This one in the shape of a back bone so that the assembly can be smooth and the stance i was looking for can be achieved. to explain some of the parts used in this Assembly i will explain each and every part so anyone can understand where those parts are originally used on. (i am no expert mechanic on vehicles or anything but i will do my best to name every part that is welded to form the artwork. "These items were picked on the spot from the scrap yard, any of these were not pre planned choices as i mentioned above". The back bone and the tail is made from different sizes of chains and a nickel belt that i think came from motor bikes and other industrial machinery. The ribs are made from metal clamp rims used on plastic and steel barrels splitting them in the middle so the form of the rib is made and also the lock part of that rim has a distinct shape of a scale so it was cut off and used as the scales as shown in the picture. front and hind legs are made from a Three wheeler's or (TukTuk as many know it) inner wheel's pressure plates , brake pads or plates what ever the exact name is and shockabsorbers and its decorated with engine cog wheels, Razor wheels, metal clamps and pulley harnesses used on lamp posts (i don't know the exact name of them) The tail is weld locked so it stays in place without any support as it should. its made from two equal sizes of normal bicycle chains and a chainsaw chain running in the middle as the scaly part. on to the painting. " as i mentioned above everything was cleaned and sanded down. then a brown oil primer coat was applied to stop any of the rust from re appearing ever again, then using body filler some of the bad areas got fixed but i wanted to make sure that we didn't dill all of them because then it would loose the artistic value and the effect the metal had altogether. also some of the areas were left with just a little sanding done because i wanted that exact texture for the painting effect i had in mind. for the effects first off the whole structure is spray painted with a flat black i purposefully left some areas with little to no black paint because the brown oil primer underneath will always give a good rusted effect. then with a cloth rag and some rough sanding papers a dry brush i painted weatherboard metal look which was later on coaled with a clear cote to finish it off." "i was thinking about what to use for the tail when i came across this old tool kit that was in an old storage box, and the idea came to me instantly, the interchangeable tools seemed to be rusted so i bought a new one for the sole purpose of making this mod innovative and more practical, so the idea here is i now have a tool kit at my disposal, ( fyi without rust) and not needing to look around for one when ever i need it (loosing tools around the work area is a whole other story though ") "i used the same painting method as mentioned above in the body painting part to get that weathered weapon effect as usual the brown oil primer coat left a cool rust effect on the tail to enhance the effect and the texture i wanted ." "led light strips and lights imma use a ton of em. i wanted to make sure no wire was visible so we had to spend at-least 24 hours to get all these lights and effects in order and in the most clean and neat way as humanly possible. everything was sleeved to a high quality and i used industrial grade highest quality wires in the wiring" "my old power supply is getting a face lift. (it seems so happy )" The psu got a new paint job new flex hose wiring and heat shrink sleeving. as well as a new red led cooling fan Thank you for watching!.

  17. Desk Master DWR

    The task: Build an extreme gaming set up for my wife to fit in my new apartment. This was to be my first scratch / custom build, I call it the Desk Master DWR. 1. Space is at a premium, and the desk must accommodate to PCs and two people at the same time. This can only be in one location in our apartment, the maximum size for this build 2.5m x 1m 2. The desk must look appealing to gamers and non-gamers a like. 3. This will not only be a command centre for gaming, but also will need to function as a work space for study. 4. I want a minimalist design with effective cable management for all of my peripherals. The build was to be in two stages, I needed a desk space ASAP, and my custom PC build would have to wait until I had more time. 1.
