The Mighty Gaming Movement: Part 3 - Case Modding

By: Chris Smith | Editorials in Gaming | Posted: Jun 14, 2015 4:45 am

Mathieu Delsuc from Math Military Modding

 

Delsuc is not new to world-class builds, seeing many projects covered on TweakTown under his Math Military Modding alias.

 

This French modder is responsible for some incredible build projects such as the real carbon fibre tubed 'Carbon Luxury' build, a scratch built ASUS Strix project and yet another Thermaltake Core X9 build.

 

- Carbon Luxury

 

No stranger to carbon fibre, Delsuc has set about incorporating this lightweight and strong material into the chassis support, compared to his previous efforts using carbon fibre tubing as for the water cooling system. Teaming up with Kingston HyperX and InWin to produce this fantastic sleek and minimalistic design, there is certainly no shortage of RAM here.

 

Currently unfinished, it was decided that this case deserved the main spotlight due to it's difference in design and Delsuc's ability to produce a completely new concept from the rest in the form of the carbon fibre frame.

Described on his Facebook page as the result of seven months of hard work, Delsuc also pointed out the crucial fact that all water cooling tubes in this project were made out of real carbon fibre.
