Combining my favorite movie from the 90's with my favorite hobby.
I hope for this project to be a testament to the 90s ninja turtles that I grew up with. Thanks for following along!

Planning - Rough concept and Case

06/05/2019

Forgive my lack of artistic ability in MS Paint (lol) but this was the quickest way for me to get my idea visualized. Hoping to do an externally mounted reservoir replica of the TGRI canisters from the 2nd ninja turtles movie. I've decided on the Cooler Master Masterbox NR600.

Finished Initial Painting of Outer Case

06/26/2019

The Masterbox NR600 looks good in any color but I am extremely happy with the light gray, and the contrast with the caution stripe on the front panel. Stay tuned!

Custom TGRI Coolant Reservoir

8/1/2019

I have been unable to update due to a move across states, but the custom reservoir has finally been completed.

Using a Protium Tube Reservoir by Singularity Computers, some 3d printing, and paint I've made a replica of the prop used in the movie.

-Originally I had planned to use some pvc pip and dremeling to design the end caps however the dimensions were off and the work looked sloppy, so I took exact dimensions and rough design to a 3d printer.

-The dimensions worked and the 3d printed end caps worked perfectly. Next I painted the stripe on the reservoir and the end caps with a metallic silver.

-For the text, I created a stencil in MS paint, sized it, and printed it onto clear "sticker" paper and applied it over the paint like a decal.

Progress Update

9/12/2019

 

Successfully mounted the pump and TGRI reservoir:

20190909_125627.thumb.jpg.2aa072ad59c999b7593e1822283b7203.jpg

 

The EKWB EK-EXTOP Revo D5 PWM pump is mounted below the PSU shroud out of the way of the power supply where the hard drive cages were previously located.The cages have been dremeled out with a small cut out in the bottom to allow the pump to sit just a bit lower to ensure that the pump had no no feed problems from the res. For such a small case there was plenty of room for the hefty standalone pump.

 

Successful POST test with RAM, CPU, GPU, AND Mobo:

Progress Update

10/1/2019

 

In this update:

All the tubing holes have been drilled, 3M Vinyl wrap applied, and a small peek at the finished pipes after a successful leak test. 

Not pictured: I also added rubber grommets to the top of the case, the inside on the psu shroud, and the outer intake hole at this time.

10/8/2019 - Closing Remarks

 

  • Overall, I'm happy with the way that my mod turned out. It stayed consistent with the nostalgic and retro 90's TMNT theme that I was going for.
  • This was my second time ever using hard tubing (first ever case mod) and was by far the longest and most difficult part of the process.
  • I would like to thank Cooler Master for providing me with the opportunity to enter my very first case mod competition!
  • Good luck to all my fellow modders!

10/9/2019 - Finished Build

 

Important Details and Notes:

  • The PC parts I chose had to be more balanced for my budget to allow a healthy budget for cooling and aesthetics. I wish I could have gone with an i9 and a 2080ti however the performance at this cost is actually pretty great. 
  • I wanted the build to reflect the goofy and fun feel of the movie - The ek-xtop pump has a max pressure head of almost 4 meters so I was comfortable making more curvy/fun bends that might not be viewed as super efficient. With a custom pwm fan curve on the pump all bench mark temps were positive.
  • Color choices -
    • Green Coolant - to mimic the ooze from the movie.
    • Purple fittings-  to represent the ninja turtles enemy "Shredder"
    • Mobo power cable - black and gray with red, purple, orange, and blue to represent the turtles
    • GPU Cable - black and gray to match the mobo cord and a stripe of yellow for the turtle's ally April O'Neil
    • GPU Brace - light gray to match the outer case with red, purple, orange, and blue stripes for the turtles
    • 3m Rusted Metal Wrap - to represent the sewer hideout that the Ninja Turtles use
