OVERWATCH / TRACER - Dreamhack Winter 2016

Hey everyone, I am new on this forum but have been doing casemods for a while now. I am mainly active on international English forums. But since I work together with a Swedish Esport Organisation nowadays I thought it would be a good idea to also come to Sweclockers. My Swedish is absolutely horrible, so I hope that it is not against the rules to post the buildlog in English.

I was asked to do a mod for Dreamhack Summer 2016 for Esport United in Sweden TO GIVE AWAY TO A LUCKY SUBSCRIBER. It was a big succes and a 13 yr old LAN gamer present at Dreamhack won it and was overwhelmed with happyness. Which was amazing to see and experience.

Neddless to say...

WE DID IT AGAIN FOR THE WINTER EDITION W00000000000T

Again we are partnering up with Thermaltake and MSI which is amazing. But this time we also have help from HyperX and Intel.

Since Dreamhack is all about Esports the theme for this project is OVERWATCH with a character sidetheme TRACER. Which is another excuse to use orange

This time I will be using the Thermaltake Core X31 chassis.

Because of the rules I hereby post a few pics of the first mod. I don't like using cases in their regular way. So I am going to change the position of the radiator to begin with.

I did some painting on the radiator mounting so it blends in with the system and doesn't become the focus of everything.

I picked up this pile of plexiglass from the lasercutter. This is my 2nd pile.

The first thing I made with it is this nice PSU cover and midplate.

The Overwatch name logo with a lightbox behind it to make the letters and triangles illuminated.

Time to unpack some hardware from MSI, HyperX, Intel and Thermaltake.

Next up was to unpack the gfx card. The MSI Aero is basically a reference design but with a PCB from MSI factory (with ref design though) and an own MSI aircooler on it to replace the expensive FE aly cooler.

When I was fitting the parts I was unhappy about how the pump and top ended up in terms of hight. Plus I wanted a nice and clean chamber for the SSDs to be in. And lastly I had the idea of adding 2 orange "ornaments" to the PSU box with one also being where the cables would come out of. So I got to work

The orange parts I had already lasercut, the black parts I made with my jigsaw. All parts were bent with my trusty ghetto plexiglass bending wire.

I am very happy with the results. The SSD box looks nice from all sides. Even from the bottom it looks like I was always supposed to be there.

More updates soon.

Thanks man!
I have to say that they started out copying or licencing other cpu manufacturers, but their own blocks (both CPU and GPU) are looking much better. Especially the GPU block looks very very nice.

hahaha

I am sorry, but the finished system was given away at Dreamhack Winter 2016 and another Overwatch gamer is now gaming happy on it

Do you think I should do another one for Dreamhack Summer 2017? Again Overwatch themed, but then another character as sidetheme?

Yeah definitely! Another OW themed build just with another character. Would be cool.

I'd love to see a Overwatch-themed computer with Reaper!

I was (sorry this happens more often) so into the modding that I forgot to take a lot of pictures during the proces

Here are a few though.

I created 5 lightboxes in total for this project. One left, one right, one behind the 2nd sidepanel and one behind both Overwatch logos. Here are 3 pictures of the right side lightpanel and the one for the front of the case where only the circular logo will be.

How about this custom GPU backplate I had UV printed? The detail is amazing and a very nice finish is on it.

I was at the same moment busy building up the system. Here you can see the radiator mounted together with the Thermaltake Premium RGB fans. There you control using Windows software. Not only the colour and brightness and illumination mode, but also the fanspeed itself. With a new update you can also do this using your phone with an app. The fact that their controllers are basically fan- and lightcontrollers is pretty sweet imo. have not seen any other company do that. Not that I have tried every fan in the world, but you know what I mean.

As you can see I also made a 24 pin extension cable and an 8 pin extension cable. The same will be done for the GPU cable.

See you at the next update!

Due to the deadline and some issues where I had to remake a lightbox I didn't have time to shoot pictures at home. I did make some at Dreamhack itself. Here is a short video I made at the Cooler Master Casemod competition.

Here are a few photos made by someone with a decent camera on the Esport United booth at Dreamhack Winter 2016.

The image used on the illuminated sidepanel was made by Warren Louw. An amazing artist. I asked him if I was allowed to use his image if I put his signature next to it and he was very cool about it. If you want to check out his work go to:

He has a masisve following with over 350k likes!
