    I'm finally back again with a new case mod project! Some of you may know me already after my first project where I won the OCN's March 2013 MOTM. Now is the time for new project on the CoolerMaster CM Storm Trooper Case. :)

    Project Imagination is going to be the line up of some of my mods. Another version of this mod is my scratch build that is ongoing right now, I call it Project Imagination SV. The Scratch Version.

    Key Features:

    1. Custom Reservoir
    2. Hard clear tubing
    3. Neat cable management
    4. Windowed Side Panels
    5. New Front Design
    6. And couple surprises! ;)



    Previous/ongoing mods :
    Project Prodigious - OCN's March 2013 MOTM
    Project Imagination SV

    Other components will be added as I go through with the project. Comments, questions, critiques, and ideas are all welcome! Btw, not all the hardware to be used is final.

    360 RAD mount in front! Looks good to me. :) I might move it higher, but I need the RAD in hand first for measurements.

    UPPPPPPPPPDDDDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTESSSSSSSSSSS!!

    I just finished the new motherboard tray for this project, I'm calling it MoboTray V2.0. The Idea behind this mod is to have a space between the two mobo plates where I can route all the cables and keep the back of the case
    as clean as possible. The result, for me, was outstanding. For mounting it on the case, I used the stock holes of the case and attached it using couple thumbscrews. With it, I can easily install or take it out of the case. :)
    This is just one of the unique/innovative mods I will do for this project so please keep checking the build log! :)

    UPPPDDDAAAAAAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTTESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!

    Shroud-Channel-bay. This is the PSU shroud I made for Project Imagination. It's just like your regular PSU Shroud, but it has built-in floor channel and 5.25" bay mount for fan controllers/etc. Enjoy! (Please ignore the protective tape on the channel)

    More coming for Project Imagination!
