Hi everyone. I am an entry-level modder from Ukraine. This is my second modding project, the first one http://forum.coolermaster.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=14808. I have no sponsors, so project budget is limited and hardware is not state-of-the-art. Here is the hardware list CASE: full custom PSU: Flex-ATX Seasonic SS-250SU MB: Gigabyte H55N-USB3 CPU: Intel i3-550 CPU cooler: Intel box (fan replaced) MEM: Hynix DDR3 2x2G 1333MHz CL9 GPU: Asus HD7750 512Mb GDDR5 HDD: SATA 160Gb Samsung SpinPoint F1 8Mb DVD: DVD-RW SATA Sony Nec Optiarc AD-7690H (slim slot-in). Concept. If you ever play Half Life 2, you have to remember Alliance turrets, including Combine Ceiling Turret: So I’ve plane to make the case not in the style of the game but highest possible close to original source. Also inspiration objects photos: Layout 2D layout: 3D layout: Here are the initial set of materials So, the frame made from aluminum angle bars, side panels - glass-fibre plastic, and the rest during the process. Getting started. Install the CPU cooler – its height is not very pleased. Have to replace the fan by low-profile one. To initiate the process make a power supply unit angular mounts: Adjust the attachment holes and fan cut-out: Time to handle a framework. The problem is that the case almost have no right angles, all surfaces are sloped - will have some fun.
