Der ZWERG aka the Dwarf

is a Master Case Pro 5 which will be transformed into a MATX Case.

This is completely new and no one have seen it before.

I don't give that much information because it will be a big surprise, so just sit back and relax the details will be published soon. ;)

Most of the used products we will get directly on the fair and we will publish the complete work log after the fair.

Maybe we can do a few worksteps before to hit the timeline. If we can do some things you will be up to date in this work log ;)


At first we will present the awesome Master Case Pro 5. The live pictures you will get directly from the fair.

Lets go:

So , first time starting to Vienna,do not ask how , but somehow I get everything into the car . :D

dscf1566o3xzm.jpg

arrived there was of course immediately unpacked and set up ;)
"Dreamy Water" survived it again , incredibly , I worried every time .

dscf1568cwxur.jpg

the Cooler Master stand

dscf1569ovl8w.jpg


After everything was ready , we unpacked first, of course taken the Master Case 5 Pro under the microscope

dscf15706nsst.jpg

dscf15710ws14.jpg

dscf15734tsoo.jpg

dscf1574mvsgv.jpg

dscf157597s0n.jpg

dscf1576zbswj.jpg

dscf1579tiso6.jpg

dscf1581axsd2.jpg


Day 1

For the conversion into a MATX Case we chose the Case 6cm in length and in height to cut .

So was the first the front and rear expanded .

But plenty of rivets had to be removed .


dscf1586xjs62.jpg

dscf1587tysgb.jpg

dscf1588t1s7t.jpg

then was on both parts , well thought out separated 6cm on unimportant points and riveted with deposited metal remains back together

dscf1590fjs6w.jpg

dscf1600xnsnr.jpg

now even the Mainboardtray away and also reduced by 6cm

dscf1601xpsqa.jpg

dscf1603kxsbl.jpg


Next, it was time to upper, middle and lower part


dscf16096jsls.jpg

:P

dscf16102jslq.jpg

dscf1616pls11.jpg

Since we had fairly strict conditions in the town hall , because we had listed all separate with the Dremel and needed for good 10h .

The case is made ​​of steel and thus has cost us plenty of cut-off wheels .

As repeatedly found live presentations in the stands instead we often had to take breaks because of the noise
:fie:

Finally, the case looked like this

dscf1619gcs8c.jpg

dscf1621rps0e.jpg

dscf16231vuux.jpg


even if it believable almost 20:00 or 21.00 clock was all transitions were still filled with liquid metal , or bonded .

dscf1624w0u92.jpg

dscf16256gumd.jpg

dscf1626d6uyb.jpg

dscf1627wfuaj.jpg



late at night then a test with the adhesive base so there are no nasty surprises the next day and again a small view of our booth stand
:rolleyes:

dscf1628j9u8x.jpg

dscf163125ub9.jpg

dscf163294uva.jpg

unfortunately there was a problem with the liquid metal , it was not hard.
That has cost us valuable time later because almost everything had to be sanded and scraped out again .

dscf1633fzut6.jpg

on the last picture for a little fitting mainboard , here all joints were already filled with 2 / K polyester filler .

dscf1634muud9.jpg


So tomorrow then the day 2 at Game City in Vienna! :rolleyes:

Tag 2

While we thought about how we adjust the body cover , we have the motherboard cooling removed and prepared for painting .


dscf1635hkrvl.jpg


Since I had actually planned the whole day for painting and we were not on schedule just , I do not have long thought and separated the upper part in the form of housing.
Because the look reminded me a bit of a DTM Spoiler I smooth left him like that.

dscf1636nzp6l.jpg

dscf16383so77.jpg

At the front of the two drive bays were removed and somewhat minimized.

I have two parts with epoxy joined together again and later revised even with polyester putty .


dscf1639evo9n.jpg

dscf164111qym.jpg

While we the Case for painting prepared ( degreasing and tape ) many still some small conversion to work .

dscf1643bar3a.jpg

The grommet of the IO panel was no longer available .

After a short test as a lot of space of 240 Radiator , I flexed a recess to carry out in the Radi Tray to the cable .

dscf1644a2rqn.jpg

Now the IO Panel also did not fit into it and came to the radiator tray in the way , so we had to shorten it somewhat

dscf164590qpp.jpg

Since we were not allowed to paint the town hall and outside too much was going on , I have dedicated myself to the Windows .
The dimensions were determined for us already , so I already had the right Acrylic glass GS sheets at .
Opal white back wall and side wall transparent.

So I had only put the holes and cut a thread in the housing .

Since I had the opal plate nor Dreamy Water left me was no longer clear what degree they had .
Unfortunately, it is 0.5 cm too small, I have taught them .


dscf1647d7p41.jpg

dscf16506qqgk.jpg


Now I have found a quiet place in the open and have primed the Case



dscf1651t3qcm.jpg


Then it was dark during the priming and it was much too stormy.
We have come quite well with the Security Fortunately , so I simply decided after hours to pack the state in film and painting at City Hall.
:lol:

dscf1652ecoel.jpg

dscf1653hmp4n.jpg

dscf1654k4oxw.jpg

dscf1656q2pt6.jpg

Really good photos then has probably made ​​no more , it was just we 24.00 clock were all ready , hungry and tired , of course .
So let's see what we can achieve in the day 3. ;)

First of many thanks to

hyperx_logo_64888smf.png

who provided us with an 240GB HyperX 3K SSD


dscf1680yhkah.jpg

dscf16835wkpw.jpg

dscf1685p9juu.jpg

and a 8GB HyperX Fury Mermory White Kit

available.

dscf1678htj9m.jpg

dscf167917j6z.jpg



2 Weeks before

To impart some individuality to the whole project I have experimented before the event a lot and I finally decided on this Reservoirs Holder.

I'll show you once briefly what and how I made it:

First time I have different acrylic tubes and rods concerned and this then cut with a circular saw on the measure.

dscf154328jt8.jpg

This was of course at the first attempt wrong, so I had my idea again modify and improvise

dscf154457k3p.jpg

2 rings I had already cut, now even 2 sockets that hold the rings and connected to the case, trimmed

dscf15453fkq9.jpg

dscf1546axkn9.jpg

dscf1547anj2n.jpg

Now the bearing surface of the base rounded so that the rings may fit in exactly

dscf1548nrkwn.jpg

dscf15502qklu.jpg

then in the right places holes set and cut thread.

All outer edges were also sanded (to 600) and burred.

actually the rings should be flush with the base (3cm) but the rings have become a bit too narrow.

More material I had not, even if I could grind and polish the base still Conical I do not know what awaits me at the fair, and whether the space is sufficient for ever.

that's already, here are some pictures of it

dscf1552grkul.jpg

dscf15533ykwy.jpg

dscf1554qmju5.jpg

dscf1555jtkzu.jpg

Here you can see very well that the holder outer edges to the reservoir and complete the inner side towards the front tapers obliquely, so that the holder does not cover the whole Reservoir

dscf1556trkuh.jpg

dscf1557qek90.jpg


So, what happens next you learn soon! 8)

Thanks David, every Mod a new Version :wink:

 

Day 3

The last day, I had a lot of plans and A lot of material here which would be processed. ^^

First I built a cover that the whole area should dress next to the motherboard right and Conditions highlighting something.

dscf1657x6qsm.jpg

dscf1661kzrow.jpg

Chic it looked then, and if the first time is Illuminated properly :P

dscf1667arqbd.jpg

Since the time again just so run away I oriented my goal also mainly in the installation of all components. Then you can still see what we can do.

The hardware and the radiators have found their place so it went to the ala Freestyle Hardtubing.

Installed CPU Cooler, all connections mounted times and forged with some brainstorming in a team laying plan.

Since no 2 16er ports you get on the cooler next to each other we had to work with an offset

dscf1658m4riy.jpg

That reminds me that absolutely did not like, it had to somehow be obscured what I think I also did a good job.

The installation plan and their benefits play here again only a secondary role. 8)

The right front Radi had to be rotated so that the connections are below

dscf1664bnqmd.jpg

and then went off, acrylic tubes turn in front of an audience, it looked masses of people tound

dscf1666m6q83.jpg

dscf16687oq0q.jpg

dscf1669xxo9u.jpg

dscf1671eiq70.jpg

and for whatever reason, as I now turned all started already at their booth pack. grrr

I have after the last picture even bent the last pipe and also began my stuff to look together and pack

dscf1673eprxo.jpg

really bad, no LEDs installed not Fill Up, I had to refer still black and white film at the Windows.

But well, Cooler Master slapped me to finish it before the case take.

So the dwarf is now in my living room and waits patiently for completion.

Because of course I could not let it stay I've done a lot already since.

Many things also liked not at all but let's start simply times to me:

one week later

The first thing I do not like the radiator bracket from the inside, as everywhere even the mounting points are to be seen for the drive bays.

So the thing gets first a cover:

Taken and bent into shape dimensions

dscf1686p6oi5.jpg

then cut

dscf168852psz.jpg

dscf1689carl8.jpg

somehow some air should there come through so I could even play something with the routing machine again

briefly considered a design and go attack, more than wrong, it can not :P

dscf16909rrv2.jpg

dscf1691p4qi7.jpg

looks really desolate, the tape was an absolute failure

dscf1693g1oqa.jpg

but I like it!

The cover is later when all other covers are already covered with white foil.

dscf1702kys12.jpg

then had to leave the red PCI slots, what are we doing there?

COVER! :P

Looking for an 8mm thicknesses board I thought was really just a board sandwiches in my apartment?

Incredibly,

2mm polystyrene had to serve for it, then I'll come over / under the Slots still at the transistors / VTs past

dscf16871mpz5.jpg

Yesterday I finally managed to polish the edges of the windows

dscf17001ns9g.jpg

dscf1701nbsvn.jpg

Originally I wanted the window so sticking with film that The manhole is covered below.

Since I have the case now here I am building for acrylic Visor

The large aperture to the right of the power supply is already finished and have not got a photo from the building.

For this to make it better to push in position a small handle fro.

The design I have taken from the front

dscf1694kgset.jpg

a small scrap bent into shape and frosted

dscf169531st8.jpg

dscf169622s24.jpg

the area under the power supply also tells me not to, so also tailored for a small aperture

dscf16978ws27.jpg

dscf1698lysn6.jpg

dscf1699o4szw.jpg

From below, I have adhered to the small aperture a small spacer so it does not fall off, and thus to the large aperture a spacer for Radi tray it will not slip backwards.

Both with Acrifix, the handle is attached so that later, but only after the film's mood.

dscf17037lsfl.jpg

dscf1704jxsmq.jpg

So now a few nice photos from the current state.

dscf1705dmscl.jpg

dscf1706t0s5y.jpg

dscf1707dns7h.jpg

dscf1708cmse8.jpg

Oh, and the M was also part of my preparation, but I do not like, just to much.

That comes next disassemble out again.

yes the upper Conditions Holder is over wrong. ;)

and the NB and SB cooler I also want to again rid of their color and see how it looks without anodising.

Remove tape When all the paint stuck to the adhesive tape, which is why we again see a lot of red edges.

So I'm hoping for feedback from you, and lots of useful tips and ideas! :thumbsup:

2 Week´s later


lets go on:

All cover were covered with foil

dscf1711udsmd.jpg

I need about 90 minutes

dscf1712x2skz.jpg

even if I am less satisfied with the quality I find the idea of lace

dscf1713atsfl.jpg

I had experimented a Little with Cover for the IO-Shield

dscf1749b5s86.jpg

what comes here? I transferred the Asrock Design on all Cover

dscf1750fmsl9.jpg

dscf17522lstu.jpg


Now I need a new cover, which previously sat the DVD drive,

dscf1715yfsj8.jpg

most parts I cut with the Dremel, since does not change the width and the blade is too wide ,I did it so

dscf17160xsac.jpg

was quite a fumbling, the clip function should be preserved,So I could not cut away more of the clip.

To get to the measure ,I had to take away from the frame struts still half

dscf17173lsjg.jpg

then everything is fixed with tape and glued with epoxy glue back together

dscf1719tjseu.jpg

the grid felt the same way, first cut

dscf1720cbsdz.jpg

dscf1721h1srb.jpg

then folded again

dscf172238sew.jpg

match

That was my only way to take over the honeycomb design, I find it even better than the original. ;)

dscf17259esdt.jpg


So, then I had to think of something for the handle, the views of the radiator looked only half-finished.

So here some acrylic glass cut and bent (determined 4x)

dscf1729hskog.jpg

dscf1731crk64.jpg

I would have greater no longer get it in, but one side of it still could see the whites from the housing interior, I remained quite the grille style:

dscf1733c8jey.jpg

Here I've been the film it and it should then be glued from the inside

dscf1735fcjxq.jpg

the dust still attached with superglue

dscf1748wlj78.jpg

like me who wants it detail pictures must only screaming

This whole black and white contrast mach photographing really not easy.

dscf1759lmko0.jpg

Now the worst, The Mainboard cooler was not particularly successful in Vienna, and remained the paint on the tape hanging and you could see the red anodized next to the label.

As I moved into the cover with foil I got the cooler just down time in Nitro thinner and let time work for me.

dscf17140bkzu.jpg

it came as it should, I could take out the cooler then blank again, even better, the label broke up what I could even now working in two colors.

then the cooler were given a bath in drain cleaner

dscf1726lakbv.jpg

and after a short time was all Blank

dscf1727x2kky.jpg

from the surface liked the cooler not particularly polished I have sometimes a portion, but not really suited for Mod / Mainboard

So painting as planned

The letters I have stuck to tape so they do not fly away while spraying ;)

dscf172843ku4.jpg

saw only times from chic but also has not really worked.

When removing paint has flaked from Chrome and looked even after fine grinding still made unclean.(had imagined shiny outer edges)

So again in Nitro Bath and down with the color

dscf17390ak5j.jpg

a two days later jumped me to bed a shining point ?!

I did not know that there was a point for the O XD

dscf1740xrj7d.jpg

ok, cooler painted white, scuttle the handle also'm slipped with the Dremel.

dscf1741tfjkj.jpg

Now came the hardest part, it Glue the letter again.


So I have got it taped a straight line set and it put the parts in position

dscf1742hdkls.jpg

dscf1744h1kkt.jpg

Then I have another piece of tape placed on clean blow to the existing and thus received all the letters

dscf1743cijmi.jpg

so I was able to rake in the back with very very little superglue in peace

dscf1746fzjfe.jpg

and then stick the tape back on impact against the other, press briefly and wait and carefully remove both tapes again

and ready

dscf1747r1jab.jpg

here again looks like a couple of pictures of it all together:

2 UV Flexlights I also set several times but every time I came home, they were again somewhere in the Case.

So I have now fixed with epoxy adhesive.

dscf1754r4sqi.jpg

dscf1755mdsz6.jpg

dscf1756u9she.jpg

dscf1758yjssm.jpg

dscf17616zs6x.jpg

dscf1763cjs90.jpg

dscf17646osao.jpg

Let's see what's coming


refers to at least some of what I write?

Sorry there are so many technical terms and my English is rather modest.

As already mentioned , we finally get a GPU .


Thanks so on

amddrsx2.png

who agreed to make our project a AMD Radeon R9 Nano
available, without which it would have been Unable to complete the project,because the space for the GPU is severely restricted.

That reminds me only the remaining watercooling components are missing here are some pictures of R9 Nano:

dscf182033s9w.jpg

dscf1821g4s3c.jpg

dscf1822acsgy.jpg

dscf1825dos0x.jpg

dscf1826e2s78.jpg

Here is the comparison with a AMD Radeon HD7970 GHZ

dscf1828lgsrd.jpg

dscf1830fpsw1.jpg

Somewhere we could still muster a white 140s Coolermaster fan, which I also installed more.

dscf1814pdsd8.jpg

dscf18154is9l.jpg

dscf1817spsct.jpg

have a few images found ;)

so the beta is completed, now only the GPU needs to be integrated into the circuit.

Hello!
Go on.

The GPU cooler has arrived this week, A picture is worth a thousand words 8)

dscf18663rq9s.jpg

dscf1867sfrsj.jpg

believe the package is not yet final, everything does not fit properly, was rather just crammed.

dscf1868b9pjs.jpg

but a vacuum-packed cooler:

dscf187156p7n.jpg

dscf1872q5qdp.jpg

dscf18730kobo.jpg

dscf1876d3qp7.jpg

dscf18801tr5u.jpg

dscf1882bcrel.jpg

dscf1884ovo7n.jpg

dscf188578q39.jpg

so after I had ordered material to create a beautiful backplate to manufacture (aluminum and various screws)
I wanted to run some tests on an old side part before.

dscf18889xrnr.jpg

dscf1889yvorp.jpg

then I got this idea

dscf1890eoq4g.jpg

right up my alley!
(why not I got the idea already in my table?)

dscf1891inrj3.jpg

So the LEDs only times so placed that they are no screws in the way.

dscf18936pra4.jpg

then set the cutout in the glass hobbyist and everything still matted

dscf1894o1qf3.jpg

then everything coated with silicone and clamped in clamps,

dscf1896xvqsc.jpg

Here is a picture with the 140s Fan

dscf1845vkooe.jpg

and here, right glued one with the decorative trims on the IO panel

dscf1858jcqyp.jpg

This weekend I'm going to paint the backplate and see how far I'll then nor with the integrated GPU. ;)
