I plan on posting the project log in the forum
Project Open Air V2
This was a scratchbuild made for CoolerMaster for CES 2014.
Full Build Log
I did this build in 2006. The door had to be replaced. It's hinge had cracked, which is very common problem with the Chieftec cases. We were lucky to find pristine donor case. The owner is retired employee from Harley Davidson. He doesn't game, but wanted to revamp his 8 yr old hardware without breaking the bank. We found him a good deal on decent hardware that will serve his needs for long time.
Updated the LED lighting to true Orange color with these new PC light strips, http://mnpctech.com/pc-led-lights/

This is my HR GIGER Tribute PC. It actually started this build a few years ago, but got shelved so I could take on customer commitments, so it has a mixture of old and new hardware, what prompted me to finally get it done, was HR GIGER's Passing on May 12, 2014, and the recent mod zoo "dust-off" event. If you've never of HR GIGER, he was most well known for his Visual Effects and design work on the first Alien movie, and of course the iconic Xenomorph ALIEN, long before working on that movie, he had established career as a painter, and had a very distinctive style that blended human bodies and machines that he described as "Biomechanical" ...which inspired the look of this PC..... the hardware as I said, is combination of old and new... the chassis is a Cooler Master 912 turned 90 degrees, and it's been 3 years since the asus sabertooth TUF shield was airbrushed with the Giger theme, the system has two seperate liquid loops, the stainless tube reservoir is for the GPU loop, and has Hardware Labs Black Ice 360 GTX, cooled with Panaflo L1As, these are 38mm thick, 68.9 CFM. Max. noise: 30.0 dB-A, the grill is from Mnpctech.com, with D5 pump and Alphacool top, the CPU is 3570, 3.4 GHz, with Swiftech's new Apogee XL waterblock, this a great waterblock for $69, and it comes with interchangable illuminated faceplate, my good friend EEL Ambiense designed a new replacement faceplate with a Giger-esque design, which I had laser cut, the cpu loop is PETG hardline tubing with EK 190 & DDC res / pump combo. Both loops are running distilled water. The system utilizes 32GB of their ADATA's new XPG V2 DDR3, and their Premirer Pro SP920 256GB SSD... I'll be using this PC in the shop for video editing primarily, so these two AMD Radeon 270Xs in Crossfire will save me from waiting for video to render all day... they're cooled with copper GPU blocks by Syscooling, just because I couldn't help myself...lol, and the power supply is a Corsair 750.

Project Home Office
Not quite a traditional case mod but more of an overall home office "room mod" that happens to include a case. I wanted a space efficient, quiet and powerful system for home office use that would also let me watch movies with 5.1 surround sound, and play graphic intensive games.
That meant a mini-ITX build and A/V shelves that would hold the the PC, the receiver and all the cables without sacrificing any space. Watercooling was the only option for a quiet but powerful system. The XSPC AX480 quad rad with its eLoop B12-1's running at 650rpm and an EK-D5 Vario X-RES 140 pump set to a silent setting of 2 is more than able to cool my nVidia GPU and Haswell CPU (the coolant is Mayhem Pastel Sunset Yellow).
Case cooling is via a 140mm fan @ 475rpm as the Seasonic PSU is passive. There are 8TB of HDD storage but the main O/S drive is a silent SSD. The 2560x1440 IPS monitor is movable via an Ergotron LX LCD arm giving me full use of the desk when needed, and the 5.1 speakers are held by unobtrusive speaker stands.
In short, the system is powerful, takes up almost no space, and is very quiet.
