Maximus VI Formula Show Casemod MbK

Hi my fellow modders,

I would like to share with you what I have made for ASUS and Cooler Master. Assignment was for Computex.

Maybe you already seen some pictures on Facebook but here is the buildlog with a whole lot of pictures

Not sponsored but provided by:





Early April I received an email from Cooler Master, if I was interested in making a casemod for Computex.
After some email traffic it became clear that the deadline was the 2nd week of May .... wow
I also heard that it should be done with a new type of motherboard from ASUS, so I could not refuse. So this will be a great challenge with this kind of deadline.

What's gonna be in this build:

We've decided that i'm gonna use a Cooler Master Cosmos II again. Normally I never mod two of the same cases, but for this build I would like to make an exception.

The Cooler Master Cosmos II





















For the cooling CPU and mobo I picked out a beautiful Prestige Cooler Master Eisberg 240L









Unpack





Beautiful pump and block











240 rad with G1 / 4 connections





Accessories for every conceivable sockets etc.







Really nice set I think.

For the fans I've chosen the XtraFlo 120 Red LED fans







Everything is powered by a Cooler Master V series 1000W









Then it was time for the ASUS products it's always nice to receive packages ... especially if it is not in the store yet.

From ASUS I've got the Republic Of Gamers Raidr 240GB SSD













And a Asus GTX680-DC2-4GD5 with EKWB waterblock









Some nice Corsair Dominator GT CMGTX7 RAMs







And then came the new motherboard, the....ASUS Maximus VI Formula







































CPU will be the Intel Core i7 4770K

Very nice!!!

Next update the real modding begins

Man, that's a serious amount of motherboard pr0n. That maximus is so good looking. I never liked the Armor on the Sabretooth because of the colour theme, but it looks so nice with the red. Also, a ROG SSD PCI card? What are the speeds like on that?

I can't wait to see what you do with this. Although i'm not too fond of the COSMOS II; lovely case, but just far too big for my tastes.

Update!!!





First we check





And now...it's modding time

Because I didn't had much time to make this build, I have used some ideas (and pictures) from my previous Cosmos II build.
Similarly, the side cover, Cut a aluminum plate and bent it.













And made an aluminum strip for the LED strip and for mounting the acrylic midplate









For the 5.25 bayside I've cut another 3mm acrylic piece



Black color on it.



In the lower cover I've cut 4x 120mm holes and covered it with glossy black vinyl



Again I used the same cutouts as the original of the Cosmos II for the front and top



But this time I used a piece of 5mm clear acrylic





And also a piece of black glossy acrylic





Placed a red SMD LED strip around the side of the 5mm transparent acrylic. On this I placed the black piece to get a nice effect. Btw. the sliding panel has again a layer of carbon vinyl.







Did the same for the top cover.









Installed the Eisberg 240 rad on the inside with the Cooler Master Xflow fans mounted on top.











And here it is.



And we go inside again. I have cut another piece 5mm acrylic for the midplate.
This is mounted on the aluminum strip and again with a red strip SMD. What gives a nice effect.



Placed it.







And made a 2nd layer underneath the top midplate, also with a LED strip



In order to fill the whole case a bit, I'm gonna use a MCP350 pump with a EKWB 2x res + top.



Installed the hardware for positioning, cut out the shape of the pump from the top midplate.

Ofcourse all will connected again with 12/10mm solid tubes. Btw. the reservoir under the GPU is just for support ... GPU with waterblock is pretty heavy



Also connected the Eisberg with the solid tubes.





For the fillport of Eisberg I let it run to the middle (behind) of the other reservoirs and let it go up. On top I've made a fillport with a valve.



The GPU out goes to the reservoir





The whole picture





Finally I have made 2 res holders to keep everything in place. Also mounted on a piece of acrylic which is also closing the 5.25 bay. Again a LED strip on top for a nice effect.



That's it for now

Normally I don't like too many LEDs on a case, but for something like this, with this theme, I wouldn't have it any other way.

Awesome work so far! Keep it up sir.

Incredible looking already! And what's with the double midplate? Knowing your past builds you've got to have other things in mind for it

Can't wait for the next update!

Update!!!





Cut all the tubes to the right size and connected them ... and time to fill with pastel red liquid.
First filled the loop from the Eisberg set. Because the Eisberg radiator is on the same level as the fill port, I placed a 90 degrees fitting into the fill port and placed a valve.











The GPU has his own loop. Pump -> RAD -> GPU -> RES

















Made the lower midplate red, which now looks like it has red liquid on it
And I have made a piece of acrylic to support the GPU



RAIDR love it











The guys from Parvum systems made 2 ROG logos for me. Only needed to place the red and white acrylic behind it.



LEDs lower part on.



Made some light ​​behind the logo. Red distorted a bit in the picture, but is really red



Again the sidepanel with XL window.



Placed the other ROG logo on the inside.



Offcourse some light behind it.







And some last pictures.















The case finished.





Time to bring it to Cooler Master NL.





Going for a long trip to Taiwan





Special thanks for this build goes to:

- ASUS HQ
- Sven ASUS Benelux
- Nick Cooler Master
- Raymen Cooler Master
- Gert Cooler Master
- Marco Cooler Master ( Good luck with your new job )
- And the guys from Cooler Master for the proper care of the packing and shipping of the build.

Grtz.
