double stripes to light up the inside of the case for the lcd
Captain Marvel - The Quantum Mod
Inspired by the Marvel Films Infinity War and Captain Marvel, which was not released and little spoilered at the beginning of my work.
The idea was to get the case a suit-like look, which worked well with synthetic leather. Because the theme of the build itself lies somewhat inbetween Avengers Infinity War, Captain Marvel and Avengers Endgame my theory was, that it has something to do with the Quantum Realm (Introduced in Ant Man).
So i decided to place a LCD Screen behind the tempered glass of the MC500P. The LCD needs a bright background to work. But i did not want to go for a full white build, so i chose silver instead.
Inside the case i tried to get as much reflective as it can get. For that i took the Backlight of the former LCD Monitor and created a RGB-PSU-Shroud (Coolermaster has them too) and one Panel to close holes in the back of the case.
The case itself was way to big for the H370M-ITX i got sponsored by AsRock, so i decided to mount my Palit GTX 1060 vertically. The all black GPU did not work very well with the LCD Sidepanel, so i had the choice to paint it or to try something totally different: Build my own GPU Cover! So that's what i did, i printed out a Cover and gave it a look inspired by the suits we will hopefully see in Avengers Endgame: The Quantum Suit.
To grab up on Avengers Infinity War i decided to build a remote as you can see there are no buttons on the case. For that i picked up my old Sony Xperia Z3 repaired the display and created a pager like in the post credit scene of Infinity War. (sadly it looks like the battery is now broken too).
Sure the work is not done yet, but because Captain Marvel is now released, i can show my work too (not much posted anywhere on purpose).
My timeframe to finish it completely was and will be inbetween 08.03.2019 and 26.04.2019 (Avengers Endgame Release) because it's based on both.
I really hope you like it, even tho it is not 100% finished yet (mostly work on details and inside the case).
note: the remote/pager/phone is still not anywhere being finished, battery was broken and i just got a new one (why continue if the phone might be broken)
And of course i am glad i had Coolermaster and AsRock help me realizing this idea.
