The Blazer

I wanted a case that is a little unique and not as common that incorporates straight lines and angles and I could modify to be as minimalistic as possible (including hiding and organizing ALL wires and controllers).

I chose to use the Cougar Blazer open frame case. I modeled the entire case in Fusion 360 3D modeling program. From there I designed additional parts and modifications to the case.

The main modification will include:


1. A custom dual loop distro plate with two integrated D5 pumps including Digital RGB’s and an integrated 7-inch touch screen status monitor with PETG hard line tubing. The top of the monitor cover will also incorporate a hidden power button for the pc using a micro-switch. All wires, rgb's and all the "messy" stuff will be covered with aluminum plate (shown in black)

2. A custom aluminum vertical GPU bracket that will sit at an angle.

3. An aluminum PSU cover that will also integrate and hide an internal USB hub and a device to connect the status monitor HDMI to internal USB (this way I don’t have to run a HDMI cable to the back of the GPU).

4. Custom wire management with aluminum covers and power cable combs to minimize the visibility of all possible wires even at the back of the case which will integrate a Corsair rgb/fan controller. The cover on the inside of the case will also hide all the wires from the front IO of the case.
