    KLONDIKE Pure Gold Case Mod 2015

    a. Name of mod:
    KLONDIKE Pure Gold Case Mod 2015



    b. Description of my case mod:

    Idea
    My idea this time is to keep the Cooler Master COSMOS II Ultra Tower Case as original as possible, but still give the case my own touch. So the thing for me this time is "LESS-IS-MORE" and to give the case mod a theme. To give the case my own touch and give the case a theme I invented the KLONDIKE Pure Gold idea, where some parts should be painted Gold.

    Also since Cooler Master have made this case mod contest possible I thought that I would like to give something back and for this reason I have made the Cooler Master BRANDWORK out of some Cooler Master CPU Liquid Cooler house and added some blue Led's to let them look "COOL".

    I have also invented an internal Gold door for my "KLONDIKE Pure Gold Case Mod 2015" with an windows, so it's possible to see the hardware there have been used for my case mod.

    Very nice but why an ITX build in a full tower case?

    Hi Takaharu,

    Thanks for coming back to my Case Mod.

    Yes, The ITX motherboard is a bit funny in this big COSMOS case. But I have made this Case Mod for the Cooler Master's Case Mod Contest 2015 - as an TOWER-mod. That means you have to use an Cooler Master Case for there Case Mod contest. And since I would like to wait for next generation MB & VGA but needed to finish my Case Mod for the contest I desided to re-use some hardware from one of my old Case Mods.

    Nice work! For a moment, I thought you were going to cover the whole case in gold leaf. :D

    BTW, that C&C case mod looks really familiar, good to see you around! :)

    Nice. I like that Coolermaster case. I still intend to do a mod on my own Coolermaster Mystique case. I have been waiting for another one to appear on eBay so I can start but there hasn't been one for years.

    You need a full ATX board and 3 Golden Edition GTX 980 Tis in there though ;)

    Yes, Full ATX board and one GTX Ti would be nice!
