[Sponsored] Project Imagination - Page 12

post #111 of 144
Thread Starter 
Well, here it is guys! Project Imagination is done. This is my 2nd case mod project and it is pretty challenging to modify a bigger case. Took me a while, but it was all worth it. First, I'd like to thank Cooler Master for giving me the chance to modify their Trooper case. I'd also like to thank Aquacomputer and ASUS for their support.

There's so much more I wanted to do on the case, but unfortunately I have to finish it now and share it with you all. I hope you all like it.

I apologize for picture's quality. I am not that great in photography. My setup was just a couple light bulbs, my comforter(lol) as background, and my sister's camera. biggrin.gif

Also, please take time to visit my project log on CoolerMaster's forum and support me for the upcoming Cooler Master's Case Mod competition 2013.

Let me know what you think of it and you have any questions about my project. smile.gif

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO SHARE IT WITH YOUR FRIENDS! biggrin.gif

Thank you so much! Some of the dark photos was intentional to showcase the details and accent of red. Case companies should start doing the 90 degree on their case now! biggrin.gif

Looks great! I do have one question though. Did you run the cables for your monitor(s), keyboard, mouse, ethernet, ect. through the back handle to get to the top of the motherboard where those connections are located or did you somehow run extensions from these motherboard ports to say the bracket on the back where the ports are generally located?

Since you have done such a great cable management job I can't tell where those cables are if you have them currently connected.

Awesome! thumb.gif

I've a few questions, please do take your time & answer.

1. Are those Primochill Ghost Fittings?

2. You've mentioned in your Project album on Facebook that you used acrylics bought from a local hardware store as it's much cheaper there. So, does it mean any 10-13mm Acrylics will fit nicely with the fitting? I've found a few on ebay with a Wall thickness of 1.50mm and 10-13mm ID & OD. Will that fit nicely?

3. What pump are you using?


Thank you for your time @adamski07. Once again, Marvelous job on the case. Your work has inspired me to mod my Trooper, I'll soon get to work on it. Thank you. smile.gif

@shrapmeth
1.No, revolver.
2. Yes, a lot cheaper. Get the 1/2" OD 3/8" ID acrylic tubing.
3. D5 pump. It comes together with the Airplex Modularity RAD from AquaComputer.

@mhenshaw0893, I did not change the leds for the power button. I believe @Ne1ld0 is the one who knows how to change leds on power button. Also check the Official Cooler Master Storm/Stryker Case thread here at OCN. They all have the answers to your questions. Thank you for liking the page. smile.gifthumb.gif
