I'm finally back again with a new case mod project! Some of you may know me already after my first project where I won the OCN's March 2013 MOTM. Now is the time for new project on the CoolerMaster CM Storm Trooper Case. :)

Project Imagination is going to be the line up of some of my mods. Another version of this mod is my scratch build that is ongoing right now, I call it Project Imagination SV. The Scratch Version.

Key Features:

1. Custom Reservoir
2. Hard clear tubing
3. Neat cable management
4. Windowed Side Panels
5. New Front Design
6. And couple surprises! ;)



Previous/ongoing mods :
Project Prodigious - OCN's March 2013 MOTM
Project Imagination SV

Other components will be added as I go through with the project. Comments, questions, critiques, and ideas are all welcome! Btw, not all the hardware to be used is final.

UPPPPPPPPPDDDDDDDDDDDDDAAAAAAAATTTTTTTTTESSSSSSSSSSS!!

I just finished the new motherboard tray for this project, I'm calling it MoboTray V2.0. The Idea behind this mod is to have a space between the two mobo plates where I can route all the cables and keep the back of the case
as clean as possible. The result, for me, was outstanding. For mounting it on the case, I used the stock holes of the case and attached it using couple thumbscrews. With it, I can easily install or take it out of the case. :)
This is just one of the unique/innovative mods I will do for this project so please keep checking the build log! :)
