Hello again every one!

I'm back again with a new build, This build was done with the Gears of War 4 Xbox1 limited edition console in mind. 

I wanted to recreate the look of the console in PC form now that the game can be played on PC with windows 10.

plus mod the Maker 5 & 5t cases used in a way that would still keep the CM case looking like it was designed that way from Cooler Master

and still make it work and look different to the normal 5t without making it too obvious that case was changed,

I still wanted it to be seen as a 5t with a custom look and theme with a clean and not so clean look. .



To start off the build done with the Master Case Maker 5 and the Master Case Maker 5t.

The Case comes with a tin box with all the screws and other bits and two other parts that I will need to look into.
The box also has soft rubber back on it that is also magnetic. witch I think is a nice touch.

The case also comes with a Red led magnetic strip.

That archers to the ran controller that's fitted to the back of the Mo-Bo tray.



Now for some hardware info:

 

Mobo: R.........................?

 


No I don't think I'm going to say just yet.

Still so much more to show. :P

The build will have 2 of the Masteraccessory Tempered glass sided panels

For the PSU for this build  will be the CM MasterWatt Maker 1200
Not sure if this will have the power needed for the build ?

Yer right lol :P I'm sure this beast would power every PC in my house.

This monster also comes with plenty of cables and a here is a small video
about it. Very cool.

OK time to start turning this case into many parts.

Front sound block out cover looks good and it works real well to stop most of the fan noise you get from the front of the case. on the inside it has sound dampening foam.

Fan and LED controller is mounted to the back of the motherboard tray.

This part takes a bit of effort to take of but pulling it out towards your self it should come off. it clips in at 4 points.

now you can take a screw driver and remove the top bracket.

OK now starting on the rear of the case. Here I have removed the IO shield plate and modded the back of the case to fit the 2 140mm fans using the top radiator or fan mount.

I have also flipped the MoBo tray to the other side of the case as well as rotating it 90 degrees.

For the GOW build I wanted to show the front of the GPU, So I have designed a bracket that I can easily change it back to the way it was just as easy as removing two thumb screws from the bracket holding the bracket to the case and two more holding the GPU to the bracket So now I can have the GPU so to facing out.

Hardware test fitting. Starting to flesh out the cooling, and getting all the hard lines set, As well as any mods that I need to do to the case before removing it all again to get ready to start painting the case.

Laser cutting and dremel work to add texture before painting starts.

The logo is only 80mm high so a lot of the fine detals like the lines in the teeth where lost so I had to add them back. and I had to make a " F " for the " OF " with the dremel as it got stuffed up in the vectors some how. I have also linished to text to add texture to it once painted.

Some more hands on stuff. One very small logo size 60mm round for the top of the case. using 1mm acrylic, some printed paper with logo and thin double sided tape.

it was then sanded with some 500 grit to round of the edges to clean it up.

Just a spur of the moment video. ( Sorry no Special Effects or sexy Music ), Just crappy sound in the background. I fitted the lights in the case and thought some of you might like to see it up and running as well and not just a photo. The white face panel lets light out but once it has been painted it will look a lot better. im also still adding to the side panels as well, And maybe one day ill get to start painting all of it.

And have you ever seen a work desk that clean? it takes a lot of hard work to get it looking like that not that anyone has noticed hopefully you are all to busy looking at the PC Thats my next big mission!
