Project: The Cosmopolitan- a competition entry, a scaled world

  • Jo 

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.

Maker Theater: The small Things….

  • Jo 

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…. »

“Eismaschine II”: really frosty

  • Jo 

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 the idea was born.

“Eismaschine” – a concrete vision

  • karel 

In spring 2016, I was looking for a concept, to try something new in PC building- with research, it has shown that almost every material and style already was part of the now- only concrete I haven´t found. With having some experience because of my job, I knew, what in general was to be done. So first of all, I wanted to have a build in the end, that offers a highly comfortable accessibility in the first, I wanted a combination of wood, and I wanted to have a nice view on all parts.

“Battlecase”: an independent cooling loop “outside the box”

  • karel 

Here is the gallery for my second build:

Within two months and roughly 200 hours, from a Corsair Vengeance C70 Case, I built this cooling solution: The sled on top is all self-made, with exception of the two carrying parts below the radiator, which have been water-cut. My idea for this rig is to show, how not-fitting-to-the-case parts

can be used anyway, with going along with the given theme of the case itself.

“Time Folder”- the Internet beginnings

  • Jo 

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.
