[Hello World]

 

 

I just want to say thank you to Cooler Master and the Modder  Communities for keeping alive what we start so many years ago... Thank you!!!  This will be my first most in 2 years... back in days I just used to do 4 or 5 mods per year... now it took me 2 years to get back on track and find my mojo... so guys... I hope you enjoy this project there isn't a lot of pictures like I used to do back then since I have a full time job now and I was only able to work 2 hours per day in my project after work and some weekend.  I even lost my north when my father past away so I keep quiet but now is the time to get back in the modding scene.  I know some of you don't know me and some do know me personal and virtually....

 

re.born is a Scratch Build that I have going around in my mind like for 5 years... It was the perfect time to build this project.  The name come from my absence as a modder.  Now is the time to come back and bring back my "A" Game... If you have any question feel free to ask I will keep an eye or 2 in the work log when I get home from work...

Thanks for watching!!! :)

After over thinking the first idea / concept... I decided to add an extra view... so now you will be able to see the hardware from the back as well... is like a 3D view now...

The original design didn't include a GPU so I decided to add one... and some MoBo and GPU covers in the process... so it was time to hit the designing room... after 14 non-stop hours... I came up with some that I like... we are going to called Cover v1.0 for now...  took the design to my local laser cut shop and voila...

After 39 hours of sanding (3 days sections)  I was finally happy with the contour and smoothness of the case... so it was time to primer coated...

Remember Cover v1.0... well... it didn't fit in the case... so I went back to the design room... take some drastic measures and I was able to keep the original design after doing some major changes... so here is v2.0...
