Unhidden | Tribute - CMWS19 C700P - a Zeuligan mod

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP
Ever since the first Cosmos I have had a dream to own that case. When the C700P was released I knew I HAD to own it and mod it. Making it extra special for me to enter the CMWS19, both on the 10th anniversary, but also with this amazing tower.

The idea of the mod is to pay tribute to the case. Modding it, but still leave it as untouched as possible. I also want to expose 100% of the case. To do that I will spend as much time on the backside as the frontside. To crown that idea, I got a 2nd window to ensure the backside is Unhidden default_icon_biggrin.gif
 
It will be a custom water cooling hard tube setup with dual loops. I also plan to 3D print a lot of the parts
 
I want to thank my sponsors for this project

Alphacool
 
And with continuous support of:

Casae Mod World Series 2019 CMWS 19 Cosmos C700P Zeuligan Custom PC competition modding starting 01

Just look at that beautiful case. Will be hard to mod this amazing thing and still keep it as clean as possible. For me, this entire mod is about taking away enough to get more attention to the case, but enough to make it a real mod. Find that balance will be the big challenge.

Thanks to amazing support from Coolermaster this amazing platinum PSU will be the beating heart. I have a plan to get the PSU visible, but still use a shroud. To ensure every single product in this mod will be unhidden and tributed.

Any big project needs it fans. Again lucky with the support, I got these amazing Masterfan Pro 120 to be the showcase of the mod. I plan to make them visible in a very special way. Based on an idea I got from a previous mod.

It is almost breathtaking to watch all this power from Alphacool. So much water cooling godness going into one case. Almost hard to believe how I will fit it all.

Happy with this first evening. Took a few hours to rig the photo studio and take pictures of all the products. Then carefully started to pick the Coolmaster Cosmos C700P apart. I'm left with the frame and have a great starting point for tomorrows full day of modding. Let the game beging. 


Still a little creative panic, so much to do in so little time. Less then 4 weeks to do a full mod from scratch. Haven't even started Fusion 360 for the 3D prints yet...


Yes, I can feel the pressure...

Hehehe, yeah, sorry if that wasn't clear. Just my own opinion. Love the case tbh! On the otherhand I love most cases as I'm a modder :P

Thank you very much for your reply and shown interest.

Casae Mod World Series 2019 CMWS 19 Cosmos C700P Zeuligan Custom PC modding day 1 01
 
First day of modding. Super excited. Started at 6am with breakfast and a long session in Fusion 360. Can't say I felt bad with a Coolermaster T-shirt and a Alphacool coffeemug in my hand. First thing was to start 3D-printing to maximize work hours. Print while doing other stuff.

This is just a small piece, printed on my Ultra fast print profile, to make sure I had measurements correct. Had to make one adjustment and run it again. The idea is to print the entire backside "plate" with honeycomb mesh patter. I also need a bracket to hold the custom motherboard plate. Visible as a 20mm vertical edge on the above print.

After some hours to many I had decided on a placement for my dual Alphacool Eispumpe with plexi RGB top. I will need to create a custom bracket to hold both the pumps, but had already accepted that.

Unboxed the Alphacool radiators and Coolermaster fans and put it all together.

One rad in the front and one at the top. Pretty much standard. Also onboxed the Coolermaster V1000 Platinum PSU and fitted that. I want all the components mounted as early as possible, just to ensure I have enough room and that they end up in the right place. Important for the next few days. No room for even 1mm off and I do all work by hand. Next couple of updates will hopefully show what I'm refering to, depending on the speed of my progress.

After about an hour in Fusion 360 I had an working model of the pump brackets. Decided to 3D print them. If they wont end up sturdy enough I have designed them in a way so I can just slide in an aluminum bar at the back wall as it is exactly 20mm in the inner measurement. 
 
 
Casae Mod World Series 2019 CMWS 19 Cosmos C700P Zeuligan Custom PC day2 02
Almost 3h on the bed, even with the uggly fast print profile, but still happy. Had to make 2 adjustments to perfectly align the bottom holes with the frame of the case. 
 
Ending this modding day at 21pm. Long day. Not that much physical to show for, but super happy. I have a pretty good idea how to proceed from here and I have discarded almost 10 concepts for the shroud and motherboard plate. Think I have it down for tomorrow. 

Best thing with 3D printing parts, is that the printer runs while I sleep. I got a 10h print (the pump bracket) loaded. Very curious how it will turn out tomorrow morning.

Waking up to a successful print is a great feeling. Waking up to a successful print on the second day of CMWS19 is an awesome feeling. 

Happy with my pumpbracket.

Fits perfectly. Snaps in place with just a little push and will not only keep the two pumps in place, but will help keep the case more rigid as I have removed every bar and steel component from it.

After a lot of planning, measurements, a few dummy pieces in cardboard I took out the 5mm thick acrylic that will serve as the new inside mounting wall and motherboard tray. Trimming detailed cuts on my Ryobi saw is just amazing. Love that saw.

This is how it will fit from the backside. I'm moving the backside "wall" 40mm further into the case to make room for some backside goodies. Unhidden | Tribute

Decided, as I usually try to do when I mod, to keep the case as it is. No drilling or cutting into the original case. That is my main idea. Therefor I decided to hang the wall onto the radiator frames. 

 

Case Mod World Series 2019 CMWS 19 Cosmos C700P Zeuligan Custom PC day2 07

After some thought I came up with this design in Fusion 360. A snap in bracket to fit exactly into the cable cutouts of the radiator frames.

After less than 1 hour on the print bed I got a perfect fit from start.It snaps into place from the inside of the radiator bracket.

From the outside it shows how snug fit it is.

Test drilled two 5mm holes 12mm apart in a scrap piece of acrylic. It worked like a charm.

Had to test with it onto the bracket and with a 5mm thick acrylic. It is just a little loose, just like I need it, as I plan to add a little more surface thickness when I do the wall finish.

After that I still wanted to ensure the inside wall would stay in place with more then just a few plastic pins. Decided to create a little more complex piece and make use of the dual corner frame of the case.

Came out really nice on the first print. 

 

Case Mod World Series 2019 CMWS 19 Cosmos C700P Zeuligan Custom PC day2 14

Twist and snap onto the two bolt rivets of the case and then a screw from the original box and it fits perfectly. It both squeezes the wall onto the PSU bracket as well as giving the acrylic an edge to stand on. Super happy.

Had to try the pump bracket. Only have one printed, but it is still very sturdy.

This gives a little sneak peak into what I'm after. Had a very productive day and have a pretty good idea what to do with the PSU shroud that will be the next piece. 

Leaving this day 2 with the second pump bracket loaded into the 3D printer. In 9h I will know if it turned out as good as the first one. Slightly different design.
