CaseMod Arc Insane Toxic [Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower]

Hey Boys, Girls, Ladies and Gentlemen!


Welcome To The Arc Insane Toxic Mod By Torment

Sponsors



I want to thank Fractal Design for sponsoring this incredible case. Its silent its beautiful Its just awesome in every way and i highly recommend it to everyone who wants a tastefull, beautiful and yet silent case.

My Purpose

I have modded before and i have found myself being addicted to it. I have this urge to keep challenging myself to see where my work might lead me. This time my mod is going to be my home PC so basically it will be used to do some gaming and now and then online streaming. This is my first time doing mod. So please bear with me and don't expect me to be the best.

The plan to a Arc Insane Toxic Case


I'm going to give the Fractal Design Arc Midi Tower a completly new look and remake alot of the parts and build a few things inside the case itself. I'm going to use an i7-3770k and overclock it, put in a poison themed watercooling with green LED fans and a few cathodes. I dont want to spoil all of it yet. Instead you will have to follow me in my progress to see the flawless Arc Insane Toxic.

The Hardware
  • Intel i7-3770k
  • SLI Gigabyte GTX 670 2GB
  • MSI Mpower z77
  • Corsair Dominator Platinum 16GB 1600MHz
  • Ocz Agility 3 120GB
  • Seagate 1TB
  • NZXT Sentry 2
  • Not decided yet on PSU
The Watercooling is not decided yet
Reasons for Fractal Design Midi Tower

1st: I picked Fractal Design Arc midi Tower which is superb for watercooling and im going to put in following rads.

2nd: The case is nice and clean so there's alot of potential in it.

3rd: silence!

360mm top
240mm front
140mm rear

Im working!
I just started this week so I'm not that far in the modding, instead check up on me and see my work evolve, give me some feedback and I will reply as much as I can.
Here is some pics to get your brain going, hoping for all kinda deep thoughts.


How the case looked before I got my hands on it send by Fractal Design





The Awesome Stuff I got from Fractal Design



How far I am in the process

Cutting out the window





How its looks on the case(not the final) stil alot of work to do on it.




Cutting out symbols and things that I'm going to use for the Sidepanel







Painting test!





How its hopefully going to look on the case aswell



Unfortunaly i ended up making a huge mistake on my first try. it ended up like this.








Follow me to the Toxic world of green liquid and glowing veins!


Hope you enjoyed my first post.

OBS: Next update will be more about the sidepanels ( Hopefully a better paint on the panel )

In the weekend, me and my friend is going to be working on getting my computer in function so that I will be capable of making the drawings for the fan grills.

I am also going to be cutting out the sidewindow in plexi glass

Almost 2k Views in such short time I'm impressed
