About This Mod

Minimalistic is a master class in clever design and cohesive theming. AKMod replaced the entire interior of the C700M chassis with a custom CNC cut aluminium framework, which was nickel plated then paired with a couple of sumptuous wood panel reservoirs cut from solid walnut and sealed with epoxy. The wood theming is finished off using EK’s Lignum blocks along with custom cut wooden cable combs. The rich materials continued to the exterior where AK coated the chassis handles with hand-stitched leather.

About This Mod

Timpelay took on the challenge to mod a Sl600M chassis into a smaller mITX version that still supports full sized graphics cards. This is a harder job than meets the eye, every detail was covered with great care so that the result would appear factory-new. Tim saw to the cooling with an elegant loop featuring both a custom Cooler Master reservoir and pump mount. The internals were finished off with custom cabling and an iridescent flake finish. The concept was to make his ideal PC from design, layout to performance.

ProjectRealgar Project

About This Mod

Realgar began life as an exercise in seeing what Alessandro could achieve using non-automated processes. However, rather than opting for the easy route, he completely reworked his SL600M chassis, replacing many of the panels with scroll saw-cut patterns. The motherboard tray is constructed from poured resin, which is further continued into the front. Alessandro even grew genuine red crystals inside the motherboard heatsinks and behind the case seams, which contrasts beautifully with the textured paint finish.

ProjectStar Wars T70 X Wing

About This Mod

X-wing truly was an endeavour of mammoth proportions, with the rig sitting at over 6 feet long! The majority of the mod was 3D printed in ABS, then painstakingly sanded, finished, assembled, then sanded again so as to have a seamless appearance. The rig is packed with details, such as how the switches and gauges are found inside the cockpit, how the wings open and close like the real thing. Stefan even went so far as to add tiny fans inside the thrusters to exhaust warm air out of the back. The build was finished off with a stellar airbrush paintjob that makes it so incredibly authentic.

About This Mod

Leviathan is a testament to the capability of home 3D printing. It’s such an unusual shape that would be exceedingly challenging to craft using other methods. So much care and attention was applied to the construction of the 3D model before manufacturing could even commence. The result is a stunning show piece build that is completely unique yet still functional. The components were woven into the framework of the shark, rather than hidden away, similarly ARGB lighting was built into the chassis and allows the shark to glow rather impressively.
