    [Case Mod] Flava Formula

    Flava Formula


    Welcome all at my next project. Cooler Master asked me last year with offer to mod their Master Case Pro 5... So, why not?

    I used it for project for ASUS CZ and liked it so much that I have to make one for me too. Therefore, this time not building the case, but edit and rigorous tuning of each part.

    Color theme is clear - black and yellow. Red has been enough, I like yellow ..
    Flava = yellow



    Planning was easier this time because I did not have to invent a whole case As you can see on the render I planned mainly inside of the computer. I want the cleanest possible look - cleaner than in previous projects.

    I want to do water loop exactly as in render - only horizontal pipes (I hope it will be possible). For first time I would like to use a bent tubes.

    Materials:

    Especially materials that complete the case.

    - Steel
    - Plexiglass
    - Airbrush paint and varnish

    Plan:

    Edit inside with emphasis on a much greater smoothing interior and a cleaner appearance. The outer part of the case completely airbrush (still thinking about paint and changing my mind every day is different ) in combination with yellow paint

    Components:

    ▪ Intel i7 6700K
    ▪ ASUS FORMULA VIII
    ▪ ASUS GTX 980 Poseidon
    ▪ SSD
    ▪ RAM
    ▪ Cooler Master V1000
    ▪ Master Cooler Master Case PRO 5
    ▪ Corsair AF120 and SP120

    As you can see, I do not know all components for now.

    Everything will be watercooled, as always, for the use of water components from the two top producers - Bitspower and EKWB.

    This project would not have been possible with the support of these wonderful sponsors!



    As regards the actual progress, so that it is not more or less zero But! I already have motherboard and case at home.





    I will add more soon, probably I will make outside of case first and then through to the inside.

    UPDATE 1

    I have today the first update - first progress and presentation of case for this project.

    This is Cooler Master MasterCase PRO 5. The latest case from CM. Designed for modders and people who like to do everything their own - "Make It Yours."
    With the partial modularity oof this case you have many choices how to build your PC.



    The front part is perforated and there is a possibility to place up to three 140 mm fans or 360 radiator like me



    In the PRO version left side has window, right have not.



    Back side is a classic with the possibility of mounting up to 140 mm fan.



    What I like the most is this part for easy installation PSU



    The lower part where is PSU is from the upper beautifully divided right from the CM, which I think is very practical. There are two slots for 2.5 "drives, and cabling.



    Front panel buttons and offers two USB 3.0 ports and two audio jacks.





    To the progress - I took the case to a friend who is devoted to painting etc. I recently built with him a sealed spray booth. The box is completely out of the film and is ventilated. The box has dimensions of 1.9 x 2.6 meters, which is sufficient for our needs.

    Dismantled case - dismantled parts which will be painted and varnished.



    Before painting was necessary paint everything with paint filler.





    After spraying filler came a control spray.
    And then grinding ... A lot of grinding



    This look quite good, isnt it? Maybe someday ...



    Parts are already back in the box before the first layer of gray metallic. We will continue next weekend!

    UPDATE 2

    In the next update we will stand for a while with the booth. We cut a little window 50x50 cm for easily looking inside.



    And also there can be placed a GoPro camera



    Regarding the case we painted all parts with gray metallic finish - it was also drama in store with colors to choose some nice gray we said, and vendor gave us a pattern and there was about 150 gray



    After the gray came the "foil technique". Sprayed with a layer of black and dried by foil several times. In the end, it creates nice structure

    With this technique we have the experience from last autumn, because we made this computer for ASUS CZ









    On the side panel will be simple logo. It will be yellow - white - black



    The case is now painted at 100%. After the weekend we will polish the parts and I will continue with modding interior. It is like a mirror, isnt it? "Perfect" for photoshoot





    One last thing to a workshop was missing .. The holder for spraying guns 2 mm HQ steel powder coated.

    How do you get the mirror finish? Is it just a clear lacquer coat or some other trade secret?
    Looking good!!

    UPDATE 3

    I have not so much time for modding these days ... Normal situation Anyway the case is completely painted and is already polished Here are the photos. It was also really cool to took these photos because in the clear polished coat reflects absolutely everything

    Complete case



    The front part will remain so "free", but there will be a radiator fan and finally a bit of yellow



    Rear side with the ASUS.





    The front main panel connectors and buttons.




    Although each piece was made separately the texture between different parts altogether builds nicely.



    More coming soon !!

    UPDATE 4

    After completion of the outer part, I started working on the inside. I want it inside more smooth and therefore add further steel sheets which will have only those holes that are needed.

    Last week I took case to a small HW event organized by ASUS, so at least I mounted the mobo, res and pump



    Sheets, which will complement the interior. Mostly cover sheets



    This sheet is with prepared holes for mounting res without screws. Originally I wanted straight combo pump + res, but finally I decided for this solution



    Sheet fits perfectly.



    Back side. Here I will have to do some cuts with Dremel.



    From the bottom of the case, I removed the mounting position for disks ...



    ... and added a cover plate.





    The second plate, yet everything fits perfectly



    Sheet around mobo has prepared a straight holes for cabling - better organization of cables that will keep nicely their shape.



    And the back cover from the back side





    I hope in next weeks I will have more time to continue with this mod
