Thread: Project "Fusebox"

  1. #1

    Project "Fusebox"

    Hi my name is Mickee from the Philippines, this is my first worklog here in the forums I hope you guys would like it.

    For the materials I will be mainly using 3mm thick plexiglass and some spray cans.

    PC Hardware:
    Chassis: Tecware Alpha
    System Fans: ID Cooling Fan NO12025
    Watercooling: Thermaltake Pacific Watercooling components
    CPU: Core i5 6600K
    Motherboard: MSI Z170A Gaming Carbon
    PSU: Bitfenix Fury 550G
    HDD: 1TB Western Digital Blue
    SSD: TBA
    RAM: TBA

    Here goes nothing!

    Base case


    To come up with a new look for the front panel, I removed the wire mesh and the honeycombed grill beneath it then made some acrylic panels using a motosaw.

    Painted the case matte black as well as the new front panel.

    Side panels from white to silver.

    Since the case has a built in PSU shroud I decided not to change it and just add a few details.


    I do not have a solid plan for this build to be honest that's why the design in my mind keeps on changing. (Yes this is not good a practice) I ditched the original sidepanels and created new ones using plexiglass.


    I will use these sliders to mount the new panel on the backside of the case.

    Here it is mounted, Im quite happy with how it turned out and everything can still be easily accessed from the back of the case if needed be.

    I have also started to apply the weathering details using spray cans, dry towels, sand paper and a paint brush.

    Gave the front I/O ports a little tilt.

    More acrylic for the side panel (front side) air vent style.

    Additional details for the new sidepanel.

    Glued together, painted and weathered.

    Those are all for now, I will be back to introduce and install the PC Components that we will use for this mod or If additional ideas pop up then I will be screwed :duh: but so far I really am enjoying this and that is the most important part

    Update time

    I added more details to the side panel on the back end.

    MSI Gaming Dragon and MadMods PC Modding Decal.

    I felt that the space next to the dragon was a bit empty.

    So again I grabbed the rattle can, tissue, paint brush and sand paper

    Closer look at the MSI Gaming Dragon Logo

    Oh this shot doesn't have the additional scratches next to the dragon..

    Those are all for now Thanks

    A sort of update, We're kinda' way past this stage but I have nothing to do as of the moment regarding this mod because I have finished about 95% of the work. So while waiting for the other essential PC parts to arrive I checked the videos that I took while working on this project and found that I did make a quick unboxing so here it is sorry about the quality as I am still learning how to do this

    Looks great. How well does the Dremel scroll saw attachment work?

    Hi Sir! thanks for dropping by, I'm a big fan of your Fallout Mod That's one reason why I'm into and trying to learn different weathering techniques.

    sorry for answering your question with another question do you mean how it is because it is just clamped unlike a real scroll saw or is the question about the cutting blade?

    It's vibrates a lot when clamped to the skil workbench but I normally hook it up on a solid table I just needed the sunlight for some photos and videos thus stretching the workplace out there
