Project A.R.E.S. has landed.
My entry for Case Mod World Series 2020 is a tower mod based on the C700M case. I wanted to tell a story with this project: the starship used for the space program ARES, comes in contact with some sort of organic alien technology, which starts to merge with the starship, covering the external structure and contaminating the propellant.
This is visually identified in the colours used (blue and copper for the alien technology, aluminum and silver for the human technology), and the lines which are more curved for the alien technology, and straight for the human one.
The three astronauts at the back, impersonated by the Hex reservoirs, look into the void while trying to communicate with the alien being. The front is a mirror which reflects the destination of the starship, the Copper Nebula, so called for the peculiar colour that appears to have.
Eventually, the humans and aliens succeed in communicating and join each other in a common cause: survival.
Back to reality: this project is a story, told in art form. A.R.E.S. took me over six months to complete, my most ambitious project to date, with countless different techniques, and unique features like the rotating system, the cosmic eye and the floating structure.

Here are the specs for you more down-to-earth people:
Cooler Master C700M
AMD Ryzen 7 3700X
Asrock X570 Steel Legend
Inno3D RTX 2070 Super iChill Frostbite
Adata XPG D60G 32Gb RAM - S40G 512Gb m.2 SSD
Cooler Master V850
Bitspower watercooling
CableMod custom SFF cables

I want to thank all of my sponsors: HWLegend Modding - Trippodo - Cooler Master - Inno3D - Asrock - Bitspower - Cablemod - ADATA XPG

I hope you guys like it, and enjoy the pictures!
