    The longer-term NEW project! from Japan.

    "KATANA" means "this" :rock:
    i love design and colors :thumb:


    One day, I found it...:eeek:
    [​IMG]
    full aluminium!

    The case building at first sight looked new and clean.
    In that instant, I thought "this is it," and quickly buy it !
    I wanted to do something to it... It's "John-Systems"...
    This is a maker I have not heard of before.

    The case was very similar to Soldam JAZZ. The only thing that differs is front bay line. and size.
    btw, Soldam is the Japanese PC case maker well known for its ALU based case branded with the name “Windy” is now bankrupt and stop making and selling of any their product. This is very sad news because Soldam is the best case manufacturer in Japan...


    So, Here's the plan.

    //Case mod with 90º motherboard rotation.

    //The Color is silver and red

    so far...

    Especially, 90º mobo rotation :lol:
    This is exactly what I've been wanting to do !

    I can do this case ;)




    -SYSTEM-

    Case: John-Systems JS-AL700

    CPU: AMD Kaveri A10-7850K

    VGA: SAPPHIRE R7 260X 2GB GDDR5 OC x2

    RAM: DOMINATOR GT CMT8GX3M2A1866C9 8GB 1866MHz x2(16GB)

    MB: ASUS R.O.G. CROSSBLADE RANGER

    PSU: Cooler Master V1000

    -Cooling-

    CPU cooler: CRYORIG R1 UNIVERSAL


    And...change a part of the specifications.
    So, The specification of the PC seems to be changed from water cooling to air cooling
    I’ve been tied up with work...but, I will make it happen someday!! Water Cooling System :rock:

    Neat case! Windy would have been popular here, but no one could get one.
    Are you going to prop up the back so it sits like the bike body?

    Yeah, chimney construction. mobo is rotated by 90 degrees.

    This is not a Windy. This is a John systems :thumb: Indeed, be similar in some respects.
