Have you ever played Skyrim? If you have, then you've seen what the Dwemer race is capable of. They are an ancient lost race of elves who built machines and robots out of copper that were powered by steam.
Makes you wonder, if Dwemer's ever got around to building PC's. What would they look like?
"A race of stonecutters, artisans, and engineers. They invented machines and built elaborate underground cities where they researched powers to rival the gods themselves. And then, at a time we are still not sure when, they disappeared. The whole people, all at once. Leaving behind only their works." - Calcelmo
I've been wanting to do my own Prodigy case mod for the last 6 to 8 months at least. I will be converting it to mATX too, and I know I'm not the first to do this.
Regardless, I need to do my own version!
I like the footprint, but hate this case
I removed everything that can be taken off with a screwdriver
Then about ten rivets to remove the drive cage
I need an mATX frame.....
Next to the Asus Vento, this is the ugliest case. Although it is only $13!
Besides the frame, I get a crappy 230 Watt PSU for testing cathodes and fans
Here's what I needed
I'll be putting the motherboard in the middle of the case and the PSU behind the motherboard tray. I'm also pushing it against the rear of the case, so I can fit a 200mm high air flow fan as an intake
The case came with a handy PSU back plate which lets me plan out where it will go
Here's the 200mm NZXT fan I'm going to use. It moves 160 cfm's!
I'm going to be putting mesh over the top of the fan, so the mesh that's there now has to go!
The back plate and PSU holes get cut out too
I'll be adding Bondo soon
I wanted to see how it looked, so I put a power supply in
This is not going to be the back anymore and it's got to go
Here's the mesh I'm using
But I have to cut it to size
And neatly cut the edges
