That case is something like 200 pounds. Wouldn't it be cheaper to scratch build? What if something goes wrong and it gets messed up?

Drilling holes for a better cut with the saw.


I was forgetting to take more pictures when i use the jig saw.






Time now for the sidewindow to do somthing else than a window, honeycumb will look also good.


Clamps.


Added some plexi on the windows.


Primer.


Time for simple black paint.






First test with the lights.


NOw its time for the real lights, Revoltec send me those 2 sets for the mini casemod, also i have some bad news, i lost 2 updates, the fan in the mini casemod was also modded, i added a usb connector on the fan, also lost the unboxing of the APC board itself.

Well time for the pictures.







Love the red


Perfect.






First test.


Final paint job and the APC is also installed.










Here a image off the fan cable on the usb connector.












A bicycle for your mind.


Other colors will also be nice.








Done for now, next update will be soon, i am waiting now for a keyboard and a mouse and mousepad.

Also i will be working on the fan and i hope to find the images of the apc board i am lost now, get data back is a good programm

Neat upgrade to an already interesting case. That's the first time I've seen a custom extrusion for the motherboard tray. Your munchkin should get a kid-sized mouse too. I'd hate to see juvenile carpal tunnel become the new ADHD.

Need new a new idea,

how about to wrap the keyboard in red carbon ?
