Alright, this is my first time even trying to post it but also to do it. Usually one starts with all the parts and then proceed with the build. Mine, on the other hand, I'm starting with the computer case build since the parts are currently used on the computer I'm writing this post with. Once that computer case is built then I can show you what I'm starting with and then start putting things in the build. But before I do that, I'm going to have to provide you with a history of the computer case. I purchased this computer way back in 2012 with what I thought was a kick ass system: CPU: AMD FX 9370 (8 core) RAM: Corsair CMY16GX33M2A2400C11R (32 Gb) MB: ASUS ROG Crosshair V Formula Z with EK-FB-ASUS-C5F-Z Video Cards: Zotac GTX 980 Amp! Extreme x2 (SLI’d) Sound Card: Creative Sound Blaster Zx HDD: Seagate 1 TB SDD: Crucial 240 Gb and 500 Gb I mistook the RAM for one that was on the QEV list. So it needs to be tweaked to go 2400 and be stable. I bought two video cards since SLI was the thing and it costed me a small fortune. <see image IMG_0772> Being an Canadian Military Avionics tech, we grew up to know all about wiring bundles and so I thought that it should be in the computer as well. Didn’t think I was doing well in that category at the time… <see image IMG_1169> So for my first modding attempt, since I manage to get a I decided to get a res Anyways, being away on course allowed me to spend a little bit of time trying to upgrade my system and was looking into water cooling. So I bought an AIO and the water cooling MB Power adapter. Then it dawned on me that I would have to get a reservoir, a radiator and additional cooling fans, flexible hoses, and all those fitting. SO I built a plan (see image Water cooling project) and then decided to mod my case accordingly. <see image IMG_1168> Back then, I didn't think of it much but it worked for what I needed. The only problem was when I had to bring it back home and the airlines weren't being helpful. With the connectors being sloppy and leaking and the fact that my AIO finally died on me, it was then that I decided to try my hand at trully modding. After a month or two or browsing through Pinterest, a variety of websites (like the bit-tech one), I was losing interest as there were no computer case that would fit the size I wanted to keep. I wanted/needed a computer case that could travel with me. It was then that I decided to trully go all out and build me one of my own.
