Hi Guys, I am Izan. This will be my very first post in lowyat.net. has been lurking around for quite sometimes. I wanna share my submission for Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 18. I just simply converting an old printer into a working PC. For this time, I received some help from Cooler Master Malaysia to complete my project. Thank you CM!!
- Intel I3 3220
- Gigabyte GA-H77N
- Corsair 8GB x 1 ddr3l
- HDD Hitachi 320GB
- COOLER MASTER MASTERAIR G100M (RGB)
- COOLER MASTER V650 Full Modular PSU
The project started from this printer
Its condition was not bad at all. Still working but sadly I am gonna destroy it. Clearing the inside was quite tough. Too many hidden screws. And that was my first time disassembled a printer. I put extra effort to clean the inside due to ink. Washed it with running water for quite a long time, because the ink was like, never stopped coming out from the printer.
Next, I cut through the top, so that the parts inside can be seen through it.
I found someone selling this motherboard with broken PCIe Pin for RM50. Not much choice when the budget was very limited. Just hope for the best that it was still functioning at that time.
Then, I used a board, not sure what type, for the motherboard tray.
Next, I used the same method to mount the PSU. I used brackets to hang curtains for this purpose.
Thank you Cooler Master for sending me Full Modular PSU. V650 was a great replacement for non modular PSU that was in the original plan. Thanks too for sending me awesome CPU Cooler G100M!! The design is indeed unique and good looking.
How they looked inside?
Need some finishing to cover the flaws. I covered the board with sticker bought from DIY shop. And repainted the exterior.
And... Its done. here the final looks
