Hi guys,

Here's a look at the glorious CoolerMaster Master Case 5 Maker! A good improvement from the 5 Pro







New integrated fan controller and LED controller with one red LED bar included.



The front section is easily removable with clips at the bottom and magnets at the top, revealing the front intake mesh and 5.25" bays. The front panel is also padded with sound dampening material.





Sound dampening cover for the top as well with air still being able to be exhausted through the back or front sections of the top panel.



















The top sound dampening cover can be removed, with clips towards the front and magnets in the back.



The top slide on cover now has integrated magnets as well, towards the front for a better grip.



















The included magnet LED bar. This one is red and not sure if case will come included with different colours.



Thanks for checking it out and stay tuned for more guys!

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

I'm prepping the case for painting but doing some mods first

Ignore the smaller scratches, I was just trying something. The paint will cover all that and might even stick better now :P

The large scratch looking cuts were done with the dremel! The melted plastic is exactly the effect I wanted. Once it's all painted you will see





















Let me know what you guys think so far and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

I have another update for you!

This time showcasing the Cooler Master V1000 power supply as well as the JetFlo fans!

The fans are red and white LED, I got more than I needed as I'm not sure how I'm gonna combine the colours in the build.

Also, the banner has been update with PLE Computers joining as a sponsor! PLE Computers is one of the best online computer store in Australia with lots of variety for water cooling on top of all the normal components. They even stock Linus' special edition Noctua fans as well as the LTT hoodies. If you're an aussie, check them out if you haven't already https://www.ple.com.au/













Some pretty powerful fans but they also come with voltage reducers for lower RPM and noise







As we as proprietary screws for the anti-vibration soft corners on the fans which are removable.



With these fans the LEDs are in the middle with the light shining towards the edges creating a nice effect.







All black and sleeved cable























Thanks for checking it out guys and stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hi guys,

I've got an exciting update for you today

Since this is a Dead Space theme I'm looking at a different painting technique for the entire case!

So I'm testing out this rust paint to see if it's the effect I'd like to go for in this build as well as learning how to apply it. Luckily I have quite a few spare case panels laying around.

The idea with this is that it can be applied to anything, even plastic and rust that too. It's a metal based paint which you apply with a brush and leave it to dry for about 1 hour. Once dry you apply the oxidising patina which is a form of activator that speeds up the rusting process. Leave it for a few good hours and you should have a nice, real rust effect.

So tonight I've applied it to a spare case panel. I did a few different areas where I applied it on straight as well as in a random pattern to see if it gives a different effect or if it even matters how you apply it. I've then applied the activator and leaving it overnight. I've also applied the activator to a part of the panel with no metal base paint as technically this should rust metal by itself too, however it might not go through the powder coating on the panel.

This is the stuff and how it looks after about 30 min since the activator was applied. I'll show you guys the effect tomorrow once it fully dries.













This is the rust base applied.





This is once dried.





And this is the Oxidising Patina applied.







Applied some more as the more you have on and the longer it stays wet for, the more intense the effect will be.



You can already see it starting to rust here.







This is after about 30 mins with the activator applied.









We'll see the full effect tomorrow once it dries.

Hope you guys have enjoyed this update! I'm definitely really excited for this entire project!

Thanks for checking it out.

Cheers,

Alex
