    Case Mod Old School To New School - Extreme white and insane Cooling

    Hi every one this is my first post here on modders.inc and im very proud to show everyone my project i have been working on over the past few months..it has been an insane journey with many trials and errors but i am making good progress and should be done soon..

    i started in DEC 2014..on Xmas day.board senseless with nothing to do so i stared at some old banged up cases Ive got sitting around and thought..screw it..i am going to start a case mod project...
    the case itself is a fairly standard (very old) mid/midi tower with no hopes for any decent airflow or character.it was plastered with vinyl decal..uglier than Shrek himself.

    so i started but removing the rivets..hammer and chisel style..i like doing things the rough way often...(plus i didn't have access to tools at the time)
    now Ive always been a type of guy who wants to keep a PC in mint condition and always running below the 65C mark..as it can get pretty insanely hot here in summer times..so as i removed rivet after rivet i started pondering ideas of what i can do to this case and it hit me smack in the Facebook...make this the one case..that one mid-tower (almost) that has the most cooling options ever....from stock to insanity.

    the case could only take 3 x 120m fans in the standard form....but im taking this to the max..and will be adding a whopping
    3 x120mm front
    3 x120mm top
    3 x120mm side panel
    1 x 120mm rear
    and maybe later down the road another two 120mm in the bottom.

    i have also always been a lover of the white cases..they look so gorgeous and Ive also been curious how it would feel having an inverted case..like the way silver tone made the style so famous..
    so all-in-all this is my version of an inverted case mod with insane cooling options and with a few tricks up its sleeve.

    most of the cases parts will be painted (custom) white/Matt white and here there some black parts.just to break the balance a bit between good and evil! hahahahahaha

    I am also very proud to announce that this is one of my first Mod Projects and that one our most favorite Manufacturers - Yours truly, Corsair has been kind enough to put their faith in me and sponsor my project with a few goodies.

    parts i have received/bought:

    Mostly Corsair...

    Hx 750 gold v2 psu
    10 Sp HP editions 4pin pwm versions not the 3 pin ones...
    H100 i
    16gb Corsair Vengeance Pro ddr3 2x8gb Cl 11(cant remember precisely will edit later)
    Corsair fully sleeved Custom white cable set for the Hx Series units.
    Motherboard : Still trying to obtain a white board (hoping to get some help or try save up and buy it myself) i would love to get msi Sli kriat or Asus z97 gryphon/armor white edition...
    Cpu : Core i7 4790K..still have to acquire ( same issue as the Motherboard)
    Storage: None..still have to acquire
    Gpu: None...still have to acquire

    s without further ado...here is some photos of the case i am still working on. i work as i get time or funds for materials r what ever comes first .ill try add as much as i can..but keep it clean and simple..sorry for terrible image quality..don't own proper cam..use phone mostly

    in the pics is a friend who helped me out a bit with some Tools.......

    picture time...paint issues..the white started to turn pink...still cant figure out why...i did mamange to fix it..later ..way later down the road..youll see..





    after this i had issues with major peel as the spray painter painted primer coat over the color coat...big misunderstanding...but some more shots first..here you get an idea how it might look..i made a whole new top cover that extends and adds some height to the case for clearence avoidnece

    Update again--sneak preview of whats to come



    radiator mount for 240mm internal/side mount..im going to make new one later on for 360 rad mount also..



    rear side panel is done,,,looks god to me...



    new front side panel (not done to date..waiting on certain parts to mount this)





    made a new way for mounting the fron rad/fans...the mdf prooved a bit difficult with the holes for screws etc..






    next is an ingenius break thru i came to implement into this mod..I couldnt sleep one glorious evening..so wetn hunting on google for ideas..and came up with this.im glad i did..cause any psu takes up half the space in the bottom of the case..so now i have more room for expansion with rads or what ever i want..PEDESTAL HERE WE GO...

    took an old gigabyte p4 chassis and cut it down...


    took the same cases old bottom and used it as the top..



    took the only side panel it had and cut it in halves so each side as its own panel at least...




    cut holes in ether cases locations for the hole grommet (made from plumbing accesories fro toilets and drains) so cables can pass thru





    dismantled everything for paint..case feet and re-assembled




    these feet are actually intended for using with AC units outside..they use it to hold the motors outside nice and snugg...




    new front face from mdf
