Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2019 - New Frame Build



Hello to all, Time for another case build for Cooler Master’s Case Mod World Series 2019.
I am planning of a scratch dual system build of a small size supporting full ATX and ITX board and custom liquid cooling in an open frame type case.
Basic idea and layout and build so fare.



Started working on the build.








Motherboard tray and front PSU mount done.










Sponsor support from Cooler Master and ASUS
























Colouring of case under progress

What can one use a dual system setup for ?
That is something I was interested in before giving up on the idea due to dual system PSUs being exorbitantly priced in India.

I have a gaming rig in a NZXT H500 and a mini-ITX download rig in a CM Elite 130 chassis. If I could use a dual system chassis Like the Phanteks Evolv then I would be able to save space and cram both systems in there as well as have more space for 3.5 HDDs which is a limiting factor in my Elite 130 chassis.

The CM v1000 is a dual system PSU?
The only dual system PSU I knew of is the Phanteks Revolt X
You can run more than two systems using any single high power PSU.
Main PC is directly powered by the PSU. second system runs on a 300W DC-DC PSU using 12VDC via one or two PCI-e power connectors from main PSU. Using it in another development PC.

Dual system is used for better space management on my table. Main ATX board is primary workstation PC , second ITX PC is used as Windows storage server, IIS, MS SQL server some more other roles. Both system are connected over Giga-LAN.

Where can I get a DC-DC PSU? Tried searching in amazon but couldn't find any. The ITX upgrade kit for the Evolv X seems to be OoS everywhere as well.

Is a 360mm rad enough for your CPU+GPU?
Is it difficult to source pump-reservoir combos in India?
I am asking as you seem to have a separate pump.
