    This project is Sponsored by In Win





    Here's the case that In Win mailed me. It's called the Matrix and is a lot smaller than most other cases I've worked with.



    I start once I get my paint!

    So here's the case





    And that's how big it is




    The side has a vent that comes off for easy cleaning. This one is staying off



    This is how the front opens



    The bottom has a bay for a card reader or something



    The back let's you guide all your cables through one slot at the bottom



    It can also be opened or removed



    At the bottom back are tabs



    You lift up the two tabs and pull out







    Then you remove the faceplate like any other case



    And only then can the side be taken off





    Here the case is standing on its back as I remove the 5.25 bay



    Then there's this plastic shroud. It's probably for the Processor air duct?



    And there's the inside

    Sorry for a such a HUGE gap in updates. I got to a point where I was sick of modding and really needed a vacation from it. Now that I'm rested, let's finish...

    I'll paint the left side once I cut out the mesh for the window



    I cut out most of the mesh, but I still need to get it cleaned up



    I made the right side sky blue



    I bought some bamboo!



    And cut them to around 6 inches. Each cut didn't have to be exact. I think varying heights will look more natural



    It took a couple of hours to get enough made to cover approximately 18 inches. My hand is killing me!

    Looks interesting. What look are you trying to get, as the final product? Or are you just going with the good 'ol "hmmm, this looks nice" approach?

    I know where it's all going

    I took the bamboo and added it to the side of the case

    I photocopied my own hand



    I then sent the image to www.CrazyPC.com who cleaned the image up



    And made me some UV Window etches



    I cut out a small piece of Plexi





    And I cleaned up the window



    Then I carefully applied the image to the glass



    The blue is the UV color on the inside of the glass



    Here is from the outside



    And backlit with UV

    I made the front bottom blue to match



    Then applied the glue and bamboo with the Chinese characters for HOPE



    Then I put the chinese charaters for PEACE on the left side
