Just a little bit thinner. (CM World Series 2017) ZenModz

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.

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.

Love the idea and the execution so far. This diet case looks like it will pack a serious punch!

ZenModz 19-03-17 11:44 PM

Thanks Bartacus, :)


Some of the very COOL hardware going into the Thinner case.

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.

That's awesome. The water cooling fittings on the mobo look like they should be the cassette hubs for Awesome Mix Vol 2.

I re-desined them in photoshop to fit the blocks. and happen to have a Roland printer that prints silver white and color. and printed then on to thin clear plastic sheet. I can airbrush but im still not that good and it would take to long. mind you it still took a long time to get them to fit and look good. :)

AlienALX 11-04-17 09:36 PM

haha well it looks like air brush work :D

Love this build.

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.

Damn that looks good!!!

AlienALX 24-04-17 12:11 PM

Wow that is stunning. I still like me a bit of flip paint. Wish I had the cash to paint my Pred 2.1 in blue to purple.

It's definitely the best looking Cooler Master mod I've seen. And not just because of the paint, because I absolutely hate that case design so it's nice to see some one attack it with rage lol.

Wraith 24-04-17 12:26 PM

Nicely done! When ever I see flip or pearl coats I'm always reminded of Hanoverfists epic paint jobs.

AlienALX 24-04-17 12:43 PM

Tom used to get some epic paint jobs done. Still remember his red sparkle case he did for some Welsh guy and showing it in car headlights. POP !

Sadly to do this sort of work you need to be very skilled and even then it still costs a king's ransom. The paint I would want to use, for example, is around 300 a quart. Then you have to buy the correct sealer, primer, base coat and laquer on top of all that.

That's how some guys spend like 20k just on painting their custom cars.

I wish there was a cheaper way around it but there just isn't. Guys in the USA and Aus are so lucky because they have the space to set up a proper shop with the right compressors etc.

ZenModz 25-04-17 09:46 PM

Thanks Guys, :) I will have some pic of the finished build late next week. :)
