    Hello everyone!

    DCMM 2017 is coming and I am creating a new computer for that. Until now I built Casecon machines but this time on the request of one of my main sponsors - Cooler Master - I'm building a Casemod computer.

    The base is a Mastercase Maker 5 case.
    My main sponsors are:

    Cooler Master Hungary
    Asus Hungary
    Geil Memory
    TeamGroup Team
    Aquatuning GmbH
    Dremel Hungary

    Thanks for their support!

    My other main sponsor is Asus Hungary and the hardware they donated me shown the direction of the mod.
    The main direction is Asus Aura. I think it's now very popular among both the modding and the end user people.

    The name of the mod is: Aura Master.

    Hardware:

    -CoolerMaster Mastercase Maker 5
    -Cooler Master MasterLiquid Pro 280 /only Cpu block/
    -Cooler Master V1000
    -Cooler Master Masterfan Pro 140 Air Pressure RGB
    -Asus Strix Z270E Gaming
    -Asus Strix GTX 1060 6Gb
    -Intel I5 7500
    -Geil Evo X 4x8 Gb
    -TeamGroup M.2 PCIe SSD P30
    -Alphacool fittings, tubes,radiator
    -Alphacool Nexxxos GPX
    -Alphacool Cape Corp Coolplex pro 15 LT

    I've been experimenting 3 month creating a material which really enhances the show of the RGB lights.
    I think I solved that and the front panel of the case is dedicated to this effect.
    I've designed a fitting plexi tank which is made of 3 parts and held together by 40 screws. This is filled with the liquid and I flow air bubbles through that. The liquid is thicker than water which is needed for the bubbles to float upwards slower.
    The whole tank is surronded by an RGB tape which is connected to the Aura port of the Asus Z270E Gaming mainboard so all lights will by synchronized in the case.
    This unit is called "Liquid RGB ".

    I've finished the front part lately. I've painted it and also I welded a stiffening element into its place. The whole part will be painted once more but only when everything will be ready. 11.jpg 12.jpg 13.jpg 14.jpg 15.jpg 16.jpg 17.jpg 18.jpg

    I had to redesign the radiator console on the top of the case to fit the Alphacool radiator and I made a cover plate which I will install tomorrow.


    I'm planning to replace the GPU cooler during the weekend. The new Alphacool Nexxos GTX will be on the ASUS Strix 1060.

    I've finished the radiator lower cover plate today.
    This part will also get a black powder coating.

    As part of the cable management, I've finished the template, made of plexiglass. I'll make the final part according to this.
