    Hi Bit-tech forum,

    I'm glad to finally be a member of this community!

    I started a new Case Mod called Project: AURORA. This is my third casemod and should look very fine and modern. This kind of style is very new to me, because in my other mods i used a lot of LEDs and acrylic glass.

    The Plan:

    • Make all in black with a bit of orange (cooling liquid, some cabels...)
    • Sleeve the PSU with Black and Orange Sleeve
    • Fit the watercooling and hardware in the case
    • Fit the hardware and the big PSU into the really small case


    The 3D Preview:

    Case Array rev2.

    Aurora v2 is in my sig, planning a mod for it along the same theme
    think_micro is another of my projects in black and orange ;)

    Also my Phobya case contest entry was named Aurora, and indeed was black and orange
