    And welcome... again... :D

    so i drilled a bigger hole for the HDD screw's

    [​IMG]

    i got both holes done and now i got my HDD adapter on place.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    oh and by the way i got some more tool's from dad so i could finish this mod someday and GOD he gave more then enough :D they came in this bag and i didn't even know what everything there would be so it was kinda surprise :D

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    now let's take this baby to the ride and make a new hole for power adapter because old was too low and was in the way of io..

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    and it's good in a hood once again...

    and here is the power supply
    it's REALLY tight... i felt like im never going to get it in... :( like virgin :D

    [​IMG]

    test fit on the case

    [​IMG]

    and it's too tight it in there, time to make some room for it

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    but now something else is killing my nerves... the clip from psu....

    [​IMG]

    it came off pretty easily, and it's there really tight anyways so it doesn't even need that "thing" :D

    [​IMG]

    the whole package in place... just few things to do yet...

    [​IMG]

    now to make the hole for io.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    doesn't it relly look like retarded monster :D:D:

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    i couldn't find anything else so i used a pack of cards to make me a tool with sandpaper :D

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    The hole didn't come right there where it should have come o_O well got to fix this.

    [​IMG]

    now it's better.... and now the last thing for today... gluing the fan.

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    i added glue several times from both sides once every hour...

    [​IMG]

    and this is where i build it... so everyone who cry's there for not having a place to build can suck a thumb cause im building in my computer desk :D ( that's why the bag so the stuff wont fly every where...

    so i cut some wires off from the old antec case front panel

    [​IMG]

    and i love the screw idea on this power button... : )

    [​IMG]

    it's time to start installing WINDOWS! and i got a vga cable so i can hook up the computer on my own screen :) and the LG BD drive is from the htpc where from i took also the Apu- processor

    [​IMG]

    i had to change the keyboard cause my bunny came and bite the wire so it doesn't work anymore :D

    [​IMG]

    oh yeah and everybody who still doesn't know, im installing windows 8 on it :D sorry people but i heard it is easier to use...

    and at the same time the case is in my sister's place in painting...

    [​IMG]

    there is a sketch from it what we had in mind...

    [​IMG]

    now it's painted, and the flower it self is cutted from a sticker...

    Looks great, very contrasting to some of the builds on here. Nice to see something imaginative and different.

    Tattadadaaa! got my transducer :p

    [​IMG]

    it took a while to get this... the European version.

    [​IMG]

    okay, so it's time to take this baby to test fire :rock:

    [​IMG]

    uh-mmm... it didn't work o_O well DA~ i forgot to plug in the 4-pin power cable :p

    [​IMG]

    aaaaand it's working :)

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    yes it's Finnish :D well now that it works we can start modifying it..

    [​IMG]

    let's test this it if will fit in there but to get it in there i got to take the connector off...
    and because i really don't have real tools......

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    so i don't have the power drill anymore :( had to give it back, well got to buy own when i got money, so i decided to take the wings off..

    [​IMG]

    well i forgot this baby

    [​IMG]

    well i got something trough :D

    [​IMG]

    it took some while to get it in this point, i had to modify the connector itself... and it's a fit!

    [​IMG]

    then i applied glue several times.. almost 5-6 times cause it flow between the connector and wood what is good thing, more secure gluing when the glue is everywhere...

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    TIME TO ASSEMBLE!!

    so i get the stuff in :3

    [​IMG]

    time to do some magics with the cables!!

    [​IMG]

    first of 2 fan cables done, rather easy.... now let's take a step in some harder...

    [​IMG]

    okay this was really... really rather hard... it doesn't like to bend much...

    now actually all the power cables...

    [​IMG]

    aaaaand magic show is done, what do ya like it? comment's?

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    please tell me did i do good with the cables? :p
    time to hook it up with a monitor and start to set stuff up..

    [​IMG]

    i like how the connectors are somehow hidden in there... nice

    and it still works...

    [​IMG]

    i noticed that the power connector wiggled so MORE GLUE! :D

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    let see ya tomorrow, i hope, because it's time to give it to my mom : )

    yes, it will not be a super computer but it will do and it's cheap to start modding with cheapo computers : ) and i know that they go in use.....

    after or sametime with this i will build one computer for my dad.

    this will be exciting, more then enough orders for me :p in future there will be update for my own computer, i will build new for my GF and one for friend.
