This named is MASTER OF DIMENSION. Many times when i look at another project, That build from my friends. Many cases, hardware is often overshadowed by the side door cover. For me, all the hardware is beautiful by design form manufacturer. For that reason, To think and make a plan to build a mod. The project was inspired by a cut in half engine. To show equipment and shows the proportion of the Mastercases. After that external decoration and interior using a sci-fi concept design. The most difficult fraction is calculation weight and balance of the base paste. If the calculation is bad. May impair the balance And the case has been distorted. I am epic. I was the difference.

Maybe have some word gone wrong.But I will try to communicate in the build log so that you can understand my job. For my concept “Ghost Rider” the reason I chose not because I like the hero. All the time I see that movie. I very enjoy when he was handle or driving the vehicle. I want to change my old case to Big bike concept. By mixed aggressive artworks form Ghost Rider vehicle. That is the origin of this work.

Entry: re.born is a Scratch Build that I have going around in my mind like for 5 years… It was the perfect time to build this project. The name come from my absence as a modder. Now is the time to come back and bring back my “A” Game… If you have any question feel free to ask I will keep an eye or 2 in the work log when I get home from work… The Idea and concept… make a round case that can showcase the hardware inside from different views not the regular mono view we are used to see in every case since the beginning of time… I was able to achieve the view from different angles… but you will have to see the worklog first to understand what I am talking about… I will try to keep it simple… and go with my instincts on this one… I don’t know what modders are doing these days or if they stop making cubes but I will go a different path… and do what I luv… MOD!

Category: People’s Choice Award

Scratch Build:
Name: Kanishka Akalanka from Sri Lanka
Mod Title: TriHexa 666 – Apocalypse Dragon
Work Log: Building

Spectacular 2016 Cooler Master CAse Mod Series Winners 11 Spectacular 2016 Cooler Master CAse Mod Series Winners 12

Entry: TriHexa- Greek word Three Sixes A creature Named Literally for its Satanic origin, bred within the darkest pits of the abyss for the sole purpose of eradicating the mortal realm. yet under unrelenting strength of the fearless mortal warriors it had failed at its first try leaving the apocalypse bringer with no choice but to retreat to its confined lair where it now lay dormant, a shade of its once unearthly glory yet as fierce as it has ever been, biding its time to strike vengeance upon the human race its unrequited wrath upon the living souls, fangs bared.

Theme – Weathered metal into the red led glow to get the lava and underworld look. The Blue processor cooling block of the seidon 120v provides the colors of a core crystal or a magical power core of the creature. The concept is to Design something completely out of the ordinary using material or means that has never been used in the computer case mod scene and to introduce something unique to the field keeping in mind to keep the cost as low as possible so that anyone can build something cool that can match or even exceed the looks of a regular pricey build with the expensive luxuries that most new modders tend to lack that keeps them form ever trying. So i thought why not do an assemble art, something the PC case mod scene has seen less of, and to do that using old used vehicle parts and scrap metal. Throughout this build, the aspects of assemble art , sculpting, fiberglass and some techniques of painting is used accordingly to complete the design intended.
