    Thanks man! :thumb:

    Unfortunately here in Brazil the RV02 is too expensive, like the 800D. :wallbash: :nono:

    This give me a chance to make the Mega Box, the project go slow because some problems to find some materials to make the case. :wallbash: :wallbash: :wallbash:

    But i do my best to make the case, as i project. :rock:

    I wish i had half the talent that you have. I would love to build my own case but after trying to mod my old cm690 i decided tha it was not for me. I love the sharpe lines and well cut panels on your case.

    Thanks man, those words from you are more than a compliment :D

    The workmanship and attention to detail are the most important part to make a decent casemod, and this is what I want, make a case that is well done. :naughty:

    Anything that guy ... this is my second mod, the first I made in my CM690 as well, I painted it, I modified the cut on the side, put acrylic, took the bays of HD and some other things ...

    And he looked like this:

    But in the end I wanted a larger case for the CM690 I could not get a watercooler kit inside the case then I thought about buying an RV02 or a 800D, but both are very expensive here in Brazil, so I decided to make my own case using these two cases in question have better ventilation and organization.

    A casemod starts with an idea and with it you can try several things to the point that you want.

    A good way is to design using Google Sketchup, which is free and has several tools.

    It is a way for you to preview of the final work on the case.

    I soon see yours here casemod

    Regards to all :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

    Well folks, after yesterday I ended up getting "broken" today, to rebuild the forces I prefer to rest today, and during the week or at the "Carnaval" here in Brazil, go on doing what's missing. :dremel:

    But still I took some new photos of the feet of the case: :naughty:

    [​IMG]

    And for those who want to know how I'm doing to cut pieces of acrylic that is the answer:

    And I hope soon to do the two feet missing and end this phase of the case. :wallbash:

    Then I will make further details on the front, and after all this, as a last step, I will send for electrostatic painting. :naughty:

    I hope everything goes well and can finish the case soon. :D :D :D

    Folks, yesterday I woke up inspired because it was the first day in weeks that I managed to sleep a little later and I looked at the case, he looked at me and thought, "I will ride this stuff"...:lol:

    So I took the case, turned upside down and was snapping the legs with normal double-sided tape:

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Until after all seated and dressed when I'm turning, two of the three feet fell off ...

    [​IMG]

    So I had to stick the two feet all over again and now only when the glue dries to see the case mounted...

    Another thing ... I managed to find the much sought-sided Scotch tape (3M), but as I know she strong glue, not put on the feet ... and it turns out that **** happened with the two feet...

    [​IMG]

    After that **** happened yesterday morning, I decided to make a montage (risky) quick feet in the case and took some pictures so you can see how it looks.

    And here they are (are not good because I took last night):

    I enjoyed today, although the day is cloudy I took some pictures.

    Hope you enjoy:

    I replaced the perforated plate that was on top to see how this was different and I thought it was better, as this plate is already painted with electrostatic paint when sending a black electrostatic, the company that will do the paint job will take this white paint to black.

    Thank you all.

    Thank you! :thumb:

    These fans are provisional.

    I will put other fans, but will be without the leds, and probably the new fans will be completely black. :D
