    Dragon Tower

    Hello everyone,

    Firstly, I would like to introduce myself. My name is Reda Iím 23 years old this will be my first work log here.
    Over the past few years I have learnt a lot about case modding on the internet from experienced modders also I have seen a lot of different case mods work logs so I decided to do one of my own.

    The design was inspired by the msi theme (Black & Red) .First up let's take a look at the case we will be using in this mod.

    The original case: DC7100 case
