This is my worklog for this years Coolermaster World Series - Master League - Scratch Build

 

the idea was to mostly print parts to merge them together to a case.

i had various ideas, but my wife chose this one as it fits the contest for sure.

 

the actual speccs:

  • AsRock Fatal1ty B450 Gaming-ITX/ac
  • AMD Ryzen 5 2600
  • 4x be quiet! Pure Wings 2 80mm
  • be quiet! SFX-L Power 600W
  • 2x Coolermaster ATX 24 Pin 90° Adapter
  • Coolermaster MASTERAIR MA610P
  • SSD / RAM / GPU not decided/sponsored yet

 

I want to thank AsRock, be quiet! and of course Coolermaster for helping me bringing this project to life.

 

the concept i made in SketchUp:

so the first steps in building this case were making a rough model to get a better look at the actual size.

after that step i started printing the first pieces to find out if my plan to hold them together with threaded rods and nuts actually works:

getting an actual feeling of the frame itself and it's size:

always the worst part, but necessary: sanding...ALOT

(and of course alot of time went by printing all of those parts)

and of course as you might have noticed, the frames got painted (lots of times, making the best of many mistakes...haha)

also was able to put it all together for a nice preview.

some updates, it's been a while since posting :)

 

testing something different - wasn't sure it would work, but it did - so i will try to make the back with a printed frame which gets filled with epoxy. (this one goes in the trash tho)

IMG_20190815_171348.thumb.jpg.f85bb59113a28c888e755d7689ebd036.jpg

 

some hardware i got from Coolermaster:

as you can see a MasterAir MA610P (i did not like the other AM4 coolers to be honest)

and 2x 90 degree 24 Pin adapter

IMG_20190819_125647.thumb.jpg.a77800fd81eda2feaacb128968315555.jpg

 

But the big boy was around 2cm to high...so what can we do? we mod it down...

- disassemble

- remove fins

- cut down pipes

-reassemble

another thing why progress was waiting for responses (which i did not get)...

buying a GTX 1660ti afterwards b grade...and recieving a 1650 - so the card i thought fitted very well into the mod had to go back.

IMG_20190911_110504.thumb.jpg.f54d47fb18321d9dec4bc4d0be7b4f0c.jpg

 

after getting the gpu i will keep i am able keep working on the things that need to be finished. ;)

 

already printed out the back frame (if that does not work out, i will switch back to acrylic)

IMG_20190917_232809.thumb.jpg.9e7df965cbb6f34a6d1846e44dff5222.jpg

 

and a cover for the front to hide the cables (which are so annoying to put in place because it's so little space)

IMG_20190918_170931.thumb.jpg.3b7930f65a924f6337604ccfc4d82ce9.jpg

IMG_20190918_180821.thumb.jpg.e14bbc3665e9cf8817f784e122ced014.jpg

 

and before i will go ahead and do the epoxy part, i had to paint the frame

IMG_20190918_184413.thumb.jpg.da3e9e93b1b0a1fc3472d922bc7173d0.jpg

 

not that much things left to do, but time is ticking...

roughly 2 weeks is not much considering there might go things wrong :)
