Hello Coolermaster Modding Fans!

My entry for the Coolermaster 2012 Casemod Competition

Inspired by one of the main characters in the latest Transformers live action franchise "Tranformers Dark of the Moon"




The Case I'm using for this project, a CM Stacker 830 Nvidia Edition.


I just love the "stacker" series of cases from coolermaster they're big and very well built, with a touch of class and elegance.

sadly they are not available on the market anymore : ( i hope cooler master releases a newer version of this case in the near future.

sleeving the psu: the original plan was to use red sleeving. but i decided to go all black, so it's easier to change parts later on without changing the sleeves. props to my good friend chezzowicked for helping me out with the sleeving job and camshow for the FTW black sleeves. :cheers::cheers:

the bare wires...

more sleeving pics...

we also replaced all the plastic connectors w/custom red connectors to give the black wires a nice contrast.
