To make it a bit more even and something not normally shown,I will post my pitch in the same manner I do when approaching sponsors to show what a up and coming talented builder would need to do to 'sell' themselves.

Would you think that would even the field?

Tom is not wrong about the CV aspect,it really is like that!

Oh this is going to be entertaining! I do love the case but have waaaaay too many projects to finish. I'll just hang out with some popcorn awaiting the entries, especially from Magoo.

Wraiths Pledge.

Wraiths pledge for the Fractal Modding Competition.

My current hardware as it stands which would be transplanted into the case:

CPU - Intel i5 4440
GPU - Asus GTX 750 Ti
Mobo - Asus H97 Pro-Gamer
RAM - 8GB Corsair Dominator Platinum
PSU - Corsair CS650M
SSD - Corsair Force LX 256GB
HDD - WD 500GB Black
Silverstone White Cable Extensions.

Firstly I'd be honored to be considered for one of these bundles and whole heartedly thank TTL, OC3D and Fractal for the opportunity.

My idea for the Define S would be focusing on uber cable management and pure unrestricted airflow, while giving the exterior and interior that sleek stealth feel, now with the interior already being roomy and clean I would pretty much keep it that way for a full loop at a later date or space to expand the Kelvin S24 into a full loop to include the GPU.

The cable management:

Cable management would be taken care of mainly by the interior panels which are designed to hide the main cables I'll also be using E22 stealth cable combs to control the PCI-e cables to keep them snug and flush as they follow around the back edge of the GPU and out the same way as the 24 pin ATX lead, the idea for hiding the cables away is to give a clean look and to maximise airflow.

The Interior:

This interior has been a plan of mine for some time now and I'm aching to get it done, my original plan was to do this with my current case the Corsair 450D using a mixture of Acrylic sheet and hard foam. Unfortunately the price of a sheet acrylic is diabolical in the UK so new medium had to be looked into and sourced, the answer to this was so simple I can't believe no one has even tried and it doesn't cost the earth to do so for all you guys out there who claim you can't afford a swanky show off rig keep looking. The plan is to use a 12 x 12mm pine strip wood to build a frame, which would be cut to size and use groove joints for structural strength. Three of these frames will be required to house all the appropriate areas and complete the interior, PSU cover, Front fan housing & back panel, all these frames will be secured and would also be removable via press fittings the very same fittings you'll find on speaker grille covers.

Once the frames are all assembled and fit flush and securely into place they will then be coated in black paint and wrapped in vinyl, but not the Di-Noc vinyl you are thinking of. This is upholstery vinyl when tacked and firmly wrapped in place will finish the panels in a sleek stealthy finish. As a bonus to using this medium should I decide later I want a change of colour it's as easy as picking off and replacing.


All this interior styling is to be lit with subtle white LED strips located behind the side panel edges.

The Exterior:

While the Define S is a fantastic case and already looks the part, it just needs that extra personal touch, the front panel would be covered with the same upholstery vinyl as the interior as well as a new smoothed angular roof panel which would stand on six chrome risers allowing air to escape and adding a tidy under glow from a white LED lighting strip, this lighting would also continue on the exterior to flow along the bottom of the case.

In summary I'm aiming for a sleek style perfecting personally on a superbly designed Fractal case and creating a clean frame for my hardware to shine.



I thank you for your time and again would like to thank Fractal and TinyTomLogan for this opportunity.

For prosperity and some insight into how I like my rigs to look, here are the threads to my past builds.
