Hello !

 

I am Bilal Moolji, an engineer and marketing professional, a tech enthusiast, a graphic designer and a musician by passion. Two years ago i developed a passion for gaming computers and started my own brand called Cezor. I wanted to forward this by adding my passion for creativity and hence explored the world of pc case modding. Having built and modded a few coolermaster cases, this year i have decided to challenge myself by registering for the Case Mod World Series 2017n using the Coolermaster MasterCase Maker 5. More updates on the build shall be posted soon.

UPDATE

So special thanks to Coolermaster India and Asus India for sending over the items listed below which I'm gonna use for this mod:-

 

- Intel i5 6600 CPU 

- Asus B150M pro gaming Aura RGB motherboard. (yay RGB)

- Asus Strix Gtx 1060 GPU.

- CoolerMaster Mastercase 5 Maker Case.

 

This is it for now I believe I'll be looking for a suitable air cooler, ram n psu for this mod as it develops.

 

So who remembers that awesome TV series starring David Hanselhoff before baywatch?

Alright now i have started to break open the case to change the orientation of the motherboard. i plan to sit it on the plate over the psu, this way the GPU fans can aslo be seen.

Now i start to drill out the rivets to open up the case....

Then for the horizontal mounting of the motherboard, i cut out the back panel of bracket on which the motherboard back plate fits and also the pcie expansion bracket (for GPU only).

Then finally use a file to smoothen the sharp edges where required.

which was hand cut to shape:-
