CaseLabs S3 MATX Mod

Hi guys!
I started a new mod into a CaseLabs S3 . I've never seen somebody who did this, so let me show you my worklog about the modification and custom painting.

My expectations:

-space for MATX mobo
-space for custom watercooling or decent air cooling
-big window on the side
-custom wiring
-custom painting

Hardware:

-Core i7 5960x or Xeon E5 2683v3
-Gigabyte x99M Gaming 5
-32gb 2400mhz Crucial Ballistix Sport
-Evga Gtx 750
-EVGA G2 1600W
-Crucial M500 240gb
-CaseLabs S3

First, I recieved the case. I've got a good price on a used S3 case which is in good condition, so I picked it up. Here it is, like a brand new!






























Next step was measuring everything and some brainstorming. I came up with an idea, to make 2 chamber on this case, one mobo side and psu side. I decided to go with sfx psu, because in this case, I can use all ventilation mounts which is already in the case. I will cut out the back panel of the case and replace it with a new. My case have ventilated doors so I designed on one side to take the psu there, and it can suck air from the outside. On the other panel I planned a big cutout to intsall window. The next quiestion was, how I gonna install the mobo. I've got a mountain mods mobo tray and i/o panel, so I'm gonna install them. Here it is the mobot tray and i/o.



Thats it for now. Im already in the making of the back and side panel, currently im waiting for the laser cutter, to make the backplate. More updates soon!
