After enjoying the success of 2nd place in CMWS 2018, the new project now feels very comfortable. For the first time I am sponsored by Corsair, and the product already at hand is the beautiful Crystal 570x case.
Who already knows my recent approach to modding, rightously will expect some scale-model details, and yes, this is what I will add here, again. This time the details will be scaled 1:220, which is Z-gauge scale.
The theme “industrial” will be shown literally, it is about to feature industrial buildings and a railroad track, lets see, how I can balance this out with the PC-hardware.
On the 22nd of August 2018, the results of this years’ Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2018 will be pronounced. Among the entries, a case housing some skyscrapers with cooling hardware in it and a subway station are to be found.
What sounds strange to the first-time-reader, is so very much normal to me: it is the second time, I submit a system containing scale models this year.
What started in 2017 with Project: “Maker Theater” in scale 1:87 and was fully build from scratch, this year became a case-mod, and I shrank details inside to 1:160.
My intention in PC- building is, to create something, that mirrors my idea of technic. By this, I want to show, what my access is to Computing. Even when I less point out striking performance increase, that is to be expected by usage of water-cooling. Only a few times I was able to present top- hardware, due to the fast release- flow of the industry.
As crazy it may sound, in my PC´s I see some kind of a sculpture, the same as Auguste Rodin saw the sculpture in the stone, that only has to be freed from the hiding material around it. No, I do not tell myself an artist, but I love it to the fullest, what I am doing.Read MoreMaker Theater: The small Things…. »
With starting on the “Maker Theater”, an old fascination of mine came to activity, again- the scale modeling. With letting the PC- aspect on the side now, I want to highlight the interesting effect, those miniatures show in this project, and in general, of course. The idea to combine scale models with computers definitely isn´t mine, I came across many diorama builds so far. In my case, the idea of a Home- Theater- PC was just as simple as tempting to me, at the same time- to have a real cinema included.Read MorePC @ 1:87 »
Here, I joyfully present you the most impressive and meaningful build of mine, ever- and I didn´t do it alone- I was teaming with my step-daughter Lia, aged 9, for a workover of her Starter- PC, she was getting in 2014- not yet a project. With new software demands, a new system was needed, and when building the Eismaschine, my concrete project, Lia once said, she´d love to have an Eismaschine for herself- but with real ice..so the idea was born.
With, the recent project “Maker Theater”, which shall be an ITX Home theater- PC, I follow a certain vision- the romantic atmosphere, of visiting a classical movie theater of the 50ies, with the red letters on white billboards, popcorn, rows of folding seats- and somebody, your heart beats for. To realize this, I will use 1:87 scale model kits, that are of a nicely detailedly resolution and of the right size for that purpose, at all.Read More“Maker Theater”: an ITX HTPC »
The first build of mine, that ever has been showed on the Internet, was if one wants to say so, more than ambitious. I tried out at least anything in this case, what appeared useful to me, these days. Even with the Phanteks Enthoo Primo case offering mounting options and space by the bucketload, I already was believing, that radiators best suffer from direct room-air, without blowing the warmed into the case. Even more important I told to be making the controlling units more accessible and visible at all.
