CENTURION. this will be my entry for the 2013 Cooler Master Case Mod Competition. i submitted it, not to compete, but to showcase my build and inspire those who feel that they cannot mod their RIG because they have cheap parts, no money, no sponsors, no tools or what not. all the mods on this build, the decals, the acrylic bends etches and cuts, the paint job and etc.. were all done 100% manually with only a DIY scoring knife a.k.a "thing", some table clamps, a cigar torch and oodles upon oodles of patience, creativity and pure passion and dedication to the art of MODDING.

it's named Centurion because the word is synonymous to Black and White and like a true soldier, with or without armor, it is strong and mighty. a lot of thought went into this build. i wanted it to look beautiful inside and outside, with or without the PSU and 3.5/5.25 side bay covers. i apologize for the horrible pics, i am no photographer. =)


big thanks to Icemodz.com and Mundi Valur, for sponsoring me with his beautiful sleeving work and lighting. thank you also to Kasper Kragh for helping me with the Centurion banner and emblem.

Thank you. I wanted this rig to be defined by it's own identity, not by the parts it carries.

Its refreshing to not see another ROG/Corsair/NVIDIA fanboy clone with as much branding as possible everywhere. I have always bought parts based on price/performance and not because of the arbitrary branding. I have nothing against the 3 above brands but a lot of people build cookie cutter stuff with expensive parts and no real work I love your rig and the color contrast looks awesome. You have great vision!
