  • [Build Log] Cooler Master Storm Trooper Case Mod

    Hi im Essential Designs and this is the next build log i have to offer. This design comes from a move i watched a while back.

    Essential Designs is a Facebook base non-profitable organisation that is created to show computer mods and designs as well as the latest news on technology while also hosting COMPETITIONS!!!!

    The design consists of moving panels that are adjusted either to increase performance by allowing more airflow and also be changed so the noise is set to a minimum to get the best of both worlds. The color scheme is a set Matt Black paint and a vibrant Yellow combination. It will have the gpu located along the side of the motherboard, with a long pci-e extender connecting the 2. all the components of the build will be water cooled and a custom res will be built to fit in the center of the case to split the motherboard and the gpu as seen in the sketch up photos below.

    Case: Cooler Master Storm Trooper
    Motherboard: Gigabyte Z97X UD5h Black Edition
    CPU: i7 4790K
    GPU: GTX 970 or R9 300 series (once it comes out and the highest model that comes out.)
    RAM: to be decided
    SSD/HDD: to be decided
    Fans: Cooler Master White Jetflo (120mm)

    Full water cooled system.

    I would like to thank both Gigabyte Technology and Cooler Master Australia/New Zealand for sponsoring me with this build.

    So far there hasn't been much progress with the build as i am still waiting for parts to turn up.

    Also in addition I have received support from Avexir Memory for this build, which I am super excited for, i hope with Avexir, Cooler Master and Gigabyte i can bring insane pieces of equipment to the show :)

          An update to the case, adding some colour, this is the first of 4 layers so what you see now is nothing to what it will be

            Finally some more movement on this build, there has been a few things pop up lately preventing me from completing some tasks. Buty the design is finally coming together.

            The first few pictures display the panels that i have made and the others are just more improvements!

                Laying on the bed and looking to the side to see something that looks nothing like a computer. #ModdersLyf

                Finally put stuff inside the computer which is nice.

                Pretty lights!

                So yes i know im the worst photographer in the world but comeon this looks kinda cool haha

                Finally i didnt really come up with a name for this build, although i have had a few people say that the theme of this build is similar to the costume Deathstroke wears, hense the new name of this build!

                  So i got a few pictures of the computer at Gamefest, down in Sydney.
                  Had an awesome time and lots of people were interested in the system. Now to finish it to final quality!

                  Next lot of photos should be the final shots for the build.
                  Thanks for all the support!
