    Hello! :) After alot of researching and thinking, I finally descieded to make a new Case mod!! I wanted this one to be a clean and good looking case so i bought the Cooler Master 690 II advanced edition amog with the Corsair AX850 W power supply. This case will be painted black and blue and alot of details in the case will be in black and blue aswell!! I will give you a list of all the hardware soon, including the water cooling set I will add!!

    This is the first case mod I make for this forum, so take it easy on me ;)

    Stay tuned!

    Pictures.

    Part 1 - Introduction and Side Panel

    I started off by taking most of my case apart!

    Side panel is ready for the Jigsaw!! :)

    [​IMG]
    Work in progress!!

    [​IMG]
    The cutting with the jigsaw is done. On this image I'm checking how I want my sidepanel to be.
    I descieded to place the window outside of the case and use screws to attach it. I also tried to arrange some edges to have the screws through. But it didn't turn out the way a planed, so I took them away. The results came out pretty well.

    [​IMG]
    Here I'm about to drill holes for the screws.

    [​IMG]
    Side panel are ready for painting!

    [​IMG]
    The Sidepanel is fully coated. In the back you can also see that I have painted the front panel of the case! :)

    Ok! This is all I got for now. I hope you like it so far and if you have any question, don't be afraid to ask! :)

    I have ordered six new fans from Xigmatek (3x 120mm and 3x 140mm)
    - Water cooling are soon on the way
    - Most of the cables in the case will be sleeved with cables from MDPC-X
    - And if I can afford it, I will get 2x new GPU's of some kind! :)
    - I also wanna get an fan controller with atleast 6 channels!

    What I will do next now is to get the case back together! :p
