    Hello guys i'm back here to post my first new project of this year! It was started two months ago, now i still working on it, but it's already near to the end, so its time to worklogging! :dremel:
    This project will be soft modded, nothing extreme, its commissioned by a client!
    Will be based on the beautiful Corsair Spec Omega chassis, i really love this case and this is an opportunity to work on it!

    HARDWARE & COOLING SETUP
    Intel & Nvidia combo for this build, Gigabyte Aorus parts and of course watercooled, but for now only the CPU! In the future also the GPU will be put under liquid!
    Detailed components list:
    CPU: Intel i7 10700K
    MB: Gigabyte Aorus PRO AX Z490
    VGA: Gigabyte RTX 3070 Gaming OC

    DESIGN & THEME
    This mod will be soft modded, so minor change will be made, the color of the case, some LEDs, grill and covers, and other little parts, but all in the style of the case shapes.

    So now let's start with a picture of the case!

    Disassembling this case was really easy!

    For the front face, i made a little mod, removed the glass and installed a grill, so i can achive a better airflow for the 360mm front radiator.
    Also another thing i done, it was to replace the original only Red LED strip with an RGB one.

    This case doesen't support vertical GPU mount, so i bought the Cooler Master GPU Holder Kit v2.0, that include also the riser cable!
    But with this kit the GPU will stay in the center of the case (that is a good thing for airflow on closed case) but we want the card on the border of the case, so i've modified a little the Cooler Master kit with some custom bracket and cutted a hole in the case for the cables.
