    Hello Again :)


    I had not planed on doing a second build for the world series but I still have time for something small. I have been thinking about doing a small form build for some time

    and i've been wanting to do a white build as well, so for this build im looking at doing a build in white and making it slim.


    I Will be using a Master Case Maker 5 and a Cosmos SE

    De-construccion have begun, lots of cutting still to go to get that "SLIM" look and the MIG waiting to put it all back together again.

    Quick layout of parts from both cases.

    And a way to put it all back together again, Oh what fun this will be!

    Some steel may be injured in this process :thumb:

    So Far what i'm doing is im trying to reuse as many parts as I can from both cases. The MoBo tray has been centered in the case to have even room on both sides,

    The back side being for the cooling and cabling, Giving me 80mm at the back and 80mm on the MoBo side and a 160mm all up. More then enough space to get things done.

    Thanks for folowing /invariance\, :)






    Update on the Thinner build, Case frame is now reshaped. The back of the case now has room for 2x360 rads for the cooling the GPU & CPU. And in side the MaterWatt Maker 1200 PSU. Still lots more to come and still lots more to do.

    Time again to show some pic's.

    From one case to the next I have used the rear GPU mount from the Cosmos SE cut it out reshaped it to fit in the top of the frame to hold the GPU in place. Plus one new clear and black printed GPU logo, For some back light RBG.

    Hi, The color I picked for the build is Harlequin. That will have the same colors as the guardians of the galaxy theme. It still needs to be clear coated as well.

    This build looks amazing (especially for a "oh I had some extra time" project!)

    Loving the harlequin paint too.

    love your builds zen

    also love the fact the build logs dont have 30+ photo's of the stock components artfully laid out!!

    love the glass, are you getting them fabbed for you or having a stab at cutting and drilling it your self?

    Thanks Buddy I can relate :) I was A Glass glazier for 4 years working with glass and painting it. But the side panels are colored plastic. and are much cheaper too. :)
