    Ok, so i have just turned 14 and i know what your thinking, but no I have been making pc's for a while. Anyway i thought it was time to upgrade my pc a bit (in the looks department). It used to look like this: ( The case is a CiT Saturn blue )

    [​IMG]

    So, i was planning to upgrade the case to a Coolermaster HAF but, as I looked into it there were little faults and things I didn't like, eg some of the case's had usb 3.0 in the drive bay ports which you couldn't remove as well as looking repulsive.:eyebrow:I did eventually find a perfect case in my price range: The "Bitfenix Shinobi white with window" and as it was completely tooless with good reviews and appears to be a good choose among modders (Tom Logan), i couldn't ressist so 3 days later i started work. I also decided to add Bitfenix alchemy white braided cables and L.E.D. strip.

    I think i might call it, the white devil or something along those lines, anyway next I decided to add a bit of speed to my pc, and is there any better way than adding a solid state drive, so that is what I decided to do.

    I was amazed after the 3 hours work transferring operating system on to it, that it was at least 3x faster than originally, to boot up, as well as making it much quieter and cooler.

    By far the hardest thing for me was to do all of the cable tidying (even though it was strangly fun :thumb::clap:). I must have spent 2 hours on it, at least, but it did pay off. This is what it looked like originally (in my old case, but you get a feel for it).

    Afterwards it looked much better:

    I think that the appreciation comes when you look at the back:

    That is all i have too say at the moment :waah: but, i will update soon because my plan is too water cool it pastel blue. Please comment what you think i should call it, thanks for reading.

    Yeah, the pictures aren't working.
    But anyway, nice to see another my age join the forum! And I also love Tiny Tom Logan's mods! Get yourself a Shinobi mate, and mod the hell out of it!
    Good luck. :thumb:

    :lol: Well you should have just edited your first post to add the new photo links, but all is good now.

    This looks very good, with a neat, clean interior and the back is fairly organised.

    Looks promising for the next step. As for naming, really personal but maybe "Iceberg"
