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

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.





What can one use a dual system setup for ?
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.

Finally after months of work, my build for Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2019 #CMWS2019 is finished now.












































Presenting Open Frame Dual PC, a scratch build for Cooler Master Case Mod World Series 2019.

This is a Developer Station build with two complete PCs driven by single Cooler Master V1000 Watts PSU inside an open frame type case.

The AMD Threadripper CPU based system is the main development system and the second Intel i7-6700K based system is a backend task system handling test Hosting, Databases, API services, Storage, Backup, etc. for main system as well as fellow developers connected via network.

Both systems are powered by single Cooler Master V1000 Watts PSU, where Main system is connected directly with the Cooler Master PSU. Second system is powered by a 300W PicoPSU, which gets 12V DC power from 2 x PCI-e Power cables from PSU, coupled along with 1 Farad Super Capacitor. The Super Capacitor helps in keeping the Second system running smoothly during all the re-boot cycles of Main system.
