Two of the 3 mods I'm currently working on :)

Maul is the one on the left in the Corsair 600C and the shell on the right is the Cooler Master MasterCase Maker 5t, this is my Tempest Mass Effect mod.

I already did some cuts in the 600C. Mainly the front panel section as well as the top. A bit more filing and tidying up of the cuts need to be done but it's coming along well so far :)

Hey guys,

I took apart the top and front panel further and did the cuts into the plastic part while I get the metal parts ready :)

Here is what I'm currently working with! Imagine the horns and eyes lighting up once the build is finished! I'm also going with a battled and worn out weathered theme as well.

Everything was cut manually with a jig saw and a lot of filing. The cut-out at the top is a small window that will look into the top compartment.

Hey guys,

Time to start focusing my attention back to this build log and get it all up to date! I've been pretty busy as always however the build is finished and I will unveil it over the next couple of days.

I just want to show you guys all the progress first and I still need to take final photos and film it.

I'll start with two massive 10TB Seagate IronWolf HDDs that are going in the build, a plethora of red Bitspower fittings and the simple weathering effects done to the case.

Hope you guys like it. Same as the front panel that I shared before, I wanted the build to look like it's been through a Star Wars space battle. The paint effects were done by dry brushing some simple acrylic paint, a very easy effect to achieve. You can also see an acrylic motherboard skirt cover panel.

Stay tuned for more!

Cheers,

Alex

Hey guys,

The motherboard I'm using is the ASUS Maximus VIII Extreme with a full cover Bitspower Monoblock that I decided to remove the top cover from and have it exposed. The acrylic would probably do with some polishing however for this build, in terms of the other aesthetics, I think it should work well as is.

The two ASUS STRIX GTX 980Tis, still pretty good cards even today, with Bitspower full cover water blocks.

And the memory I'm using is the Corsair Vengeance red LED

They're pretty good how you can easily remove the tops to orientate the Corsair logo to better suit your build.

The tops could even be painted quite easily for further customisation.

And here's everything mounted inside, with tubes in so I can mark for the pass-through fittings on the front panel.

Okay, here we go, pass-through fittings are mounted and the front acrylic cover panel is complete.

You can also see the motherboard skirt panel is ready as well, with reservoir mounts on.

Fans are going underneath the case and a 60mm thick radiator on top of them in the bottom of the case. I just wanted more room and the fans fit nicely underneath. Plus, they will give a nice glow underneath the case.

Hi guys,

Here's most of the piping done!

One issue I had with this is that two of the pass through fittings were way too close to each other and I only had Bitspower C47 style fittings that were a bit too large. So I ended up hand filing them down.

This was the result:

Just shaved off a few mm and they fit perfectly with a bit of tubing between them.

They're the ones at the very bottom.

Mounted the RGB LED controller for the Corsair fans in the front as well. This will be accessible from the side even with the front panel on.

And here's a look at the cable management.

And now the inside.

The red chrome tubes, with the fittings in the middle is a reference to the dual lightsaber.

Hey guys,

These were the final photos I took before getting all the panels on and finishing the build :)

As you can see, I went with black coolant and I also have a few red cold cathodes in there just for some more lightsaber references :)

Stay tuned for final pics!

Hi guys,

Here are the final photos! I hope you like it, I'm really happy with this one!

The only thing that might need to be changed or improved is the light behind the Darth Maul face on the front panel. The white acrylic would need to be changed to opal and get some better lighting in there so that the front panel pops nicely in the dark.

I'd like to say a huge thanks to the companies that helped me bring this project to life!
