Complete with XPOWER decals and a brandishing a Cooler Master logo, the motherboard on display in this chassis has a seriously large amount of USB 3.0 ports.

 

Although lit up, it's unfortunately not plugged in and running which would be great to see - I wonder if it moves too?

Known for his amazing ThermalTHOR and Core X 2 Furious mods in the past, this is another fantastic rendition by the Thai modding master.

Hailing from Thailand, this full-time farmer is certainly nothing to scoff at and has titled his new entry 'Core X 2 furious' - it is becoming apparent that Prowphong certainly loves his action movies.

 

Complete with two different Intel i5 CPUs and a great white color scheme, the only other Thermaltake CaseMOD entry we have covered so far with such a setup is Stuart Tonk's (AUS) dual Intel Xeon entry.

The UK's Richi Bowzer brings his best mod to the global stage

Hailing from the United Kingdom, master modder Richi 'rchiileea+richi' Bowzer has been selected as one of seven modders to go head to head with other big names that TweakTown has already covered in Thermaltake's caseMOD invitational competition - check out Stuart Tonks (AUS) and Fabio Moma (JP).

Looking a little different from most mods you will see in this day and age, Bowzer quotes his expansive computer history as part of his modding know-how, stating "how old am I? well old enough to know you can run a AMD K2 without a heat sink for a few minutes, and to also know a small company called abit only released mobos with German translated manuals" all while navigating through a dial-up connection.

 

With the theme of this case being titled as 'Illusionist', Bowzer has gone about integrating the Thermaltake Core X9 case on offer with a fancy painted color scheme coupled with a cool 16GB of Avexir Blitz 1.1 RAM.

Sponsored by Thermaltake, Avexir, ASUS ROG and Kingston HyperX, this blue-lit build of Thermaltake's Core series chassis is adeptly named 'Colossus X' and features some neat LED work to help produce a cool-feeling futuristic build - said to be "based on the comic book heroes" as pointed out in Moma's build log.

 

Complete with an extremely polished front panel, the components within can be viewed in the full story.
