Hello everyone and welcome to one of my entries for this year's Case Mod World Series! Project Sky Three is a mod that brings the concept of "stacking" to a new level: three cases, Q300P in particular, are modified to be unified into a single case, that's very tall and can house insane amount of cooling for its footprint. It's specifically themed after the Sky Tree, a beautiful tower in Tokyo. First of all, let's take a look at the three cases out of the box. Now, after having torn apart the cases to leave the frame alone, I started taking measurements for the L profile that will fix the cases together. I actually tried three different layout for the L profiles, the first was my original idea and it included four profiles on all angles, but it was way to squared and weird looking So I moved on to an alternate layout, two profiles connecting first and second case, and two connecting second and third. It looked even weirder to me, and probably not sturdy enough The third attempt was the successful, I really like this layout and will stick with this For the feet, I bought some furniture handles and adapted them As you saw, two angles will feature tubes between the cases, to allow a perfect alignment and stability. Two secure them, I use two little wooden bars for each tube, attached to the cases. This way, before I mount the case, I simply slide the tube in place and let it do the job After having the cases fixed, I started putting threaded rivets on the sides of the cases, which will secure panels with fans and some cool lighting pieces I salvaged from the front section of the Q300P's.
Well hello there. You will know me by name Contay. This is rather late bloomer in the cmws19, but after all, I came this far. I wasn't even sure, would I compete even I registered here, but things went as they are. My original idea was to take then new Q500L (released 5/2019 in Finland) and modify it to better suit my high end, two player virtual system. During past weeks I got hold to myself and kicked things forward once and for all. As I had almost all other parts ready, except few radiators, I decided why not, after all, to compete here. Here is what I started with, basically. Sad truth is, Zenith suffered some damage and I am running some back up Taichi X399. Good thing I had spare... Complete parts list: -X399 Zenith is dead X399 Asrock Taichi -2950X Threadripper, overclocked to the moon - 8x8GB Gskill Trident Z, black and white, 3200MHz CL14 - Two watercooled Radeon VII, EK block and standard backplate. Chose to use standard backplate for more fitting look in the build. - EK supremacy TR4 block, Acrylic and Nickel -Two 280 radiators by EKWB, 30 and 45mm thick units -Four Noctua 2000rpm industrial fans, 140mm -Two Cryorig slim 140mm fans -Three Samsung 1TB 860 Evo SSD for virtual rigs storage drives -Two Samsung 950 Pro 512GB, one for native boot and other for virtual rigs as OS drive - SX350 Fusion IoMemory pcie drive, 3.2TB for native boot storage -Corsais AX1600i to power the beast -Various watercooling parts in custom loop -Coolermaster Q500L ready to be butch... Modified Modification started with simple procedure by removing dust filters from the case: Modding continued by some slight metal cutting. For slightly improved airflow, you see. Just a little from the top. And sides. And bottom. And rear. To be honest, it has less holes than it had in original shape. Of course, there had to be something to coat this thing with and I had, from the beginning, chosen the material. Custom parts would be AISI304 stainless steel, lasercut and glass blasted. Well, it was a bummer but my contact for glassblasting faded me so I had to get by with brushed surface. Parts came withing a week from order. Here are parts as they arrived. I later used spinning brass brush in powerdrill to get more matte surface. It looks slightly more industrial and less kitcheny now as it's not all shiny. Next iteration will definitely get glass blasting. Before I tore case apart once more, I had to make few test fits and drill rivet holes in the case. AS you can see, it will feature way more airflow than original design. Currently I just wait the paint get dry, literally. Posting more soon. - Contay
I was challenged to mod the H500M in a new way that still retained the originality of the case. I took the opportunity to also display the Aorus RTX2080 by tilting it 45 degrees. It took hundreds of hours to complete but was well worth it. It also features some of the best hardware on the market: The top, both sides, front and back have all been modded by me in house. I spent a ton of time doing detail work throughout the build including parts that are not even visable in order to perfect the ONYX case mod throughout. The closer you look; the more small detail work you'll see. The Thought Behind ONYX:This mod was inspired by modern design elements that I enjoy. I also centered a lot of the ONYX mod around the custom mounted GPU that's at an angle. To accomplish this I removed almost the entire back of the case and then rebuilt a small portion to accommodate the design elements. Lots of new techniques were employed. The main shroud was built so that the hidden top LEDs would shine through the shroud to give it a really neat effect. I had about 2 months to do the case mod and I couldn't be happier with the outcome.

Project Fraxinus -inspired from the anime Date A Live, The Airship Fraxinus -The Mission The concept of this RIG is to Build/Mod PC Cases without spending too much on parts. The name â€œFraxinusâ€ came from the anime Date A Live, the Airship Fraxinus With parts available at my home, i aim to build a Compact and a Quality PC Case without spending too much on the parts. Aside from building a Compact and a Quality PC Case, i aim to promote PC Case Modding and share the passion of Case modding Here on General Santos City as most of the people here who owns a computer does not know what can they do with their cases, And whenever there is an RIG Events here, the participants are mostly from other Cities with their custom cases. And most people say that Case modding cost much, yes it does, but let's think out of the box here, aside from buying premium things (cases, pipes and stuff) why don't we try using things from our garage? Or even things in the junkshop? The Goal is to Build A Compact And A Quality case without spending too much with that in mind, the water cooling parts that i'll use on my project might surprise you. --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- To Expect at the end of the project Watercooling with things from garage Frankenstein PC Poor Man's Rig Custom Water Reservoir Custom Waterblock (TBC) A/C Condenser as the Water Radiator Video Worklog maybe?
