    I've decided to mod a brand new Lian Li PC-V1000B. It will be water cooled, have a laser cut window with a very involved etching, painted interior, UV, all color coordinated, yaddi yaddi yadda....

    Here's a couple pics to whet your appetites....

    This is what it looked like before I began:

    This is how it ended up after MANY rivets were drilled out (Lian Li got a little happy with the rivets on the V1000...):

    After I dried my tears :waah:, I began to paint!!

    [​IMG]

    Here's a pic of me removing the hard drive mounting rails so they can be vinyl dyed. The color scheme of this mod will be black/red and as much as I can stick to this, the happier I will be.

    After I slapped 2 or 3 coats of red automotive paint on the case internals and PSU, I decided that I *hated* how it looked. After a lot of paint stripping, I'm back to silver. I have some metallic *ruby red* paint being shipped to me as we speak, so I should be ready to paint again midweek.

    I'll keep you posted!

    thats the first time ive seen that case, and for a second i thought it was someone elses finished mod(they were doing the duct on the bottom). man that case is beautiful. i wish you the best of luck in this mod and i hope it accentuates lian-li's already great design.

    Oooohh.. I like it already. I won't subscribe as the notices would get eaten by my mail filters :sigh: but I'll check back in all the time :D

    Do you like the case on it's own so far? I was kinda thinking about getting one of the v2000's. And how does the stealther thing get mounted in that case (since you don't have access to the front side of the bezels)? Just screwed in from the back or something?

    There had better be red light (or whatever..you mentioned red) coming out of every single one of those holes when you're done!

    I like that layout of that case a lot. The extra drive space is very cool :D.
    TBH, I still prefer the "classic" Lian-Li look (PC-60, PC-75, etc) ;).

    Black interior sounds like a great start, make sure you do a good job though....wouldn't want to ruin that purdy case :lol:.

    So what kind of etch is going on the window?

    Does that lian li case come with a slideout motherboard tray. My lian li does and I was wondering if that one did.

    Speaking of internals... what's the deal with the power button? I know the few reviews I found of the case all said it was mislabelled as reset. Maybe LL is telling us to use your mobo's power management features to let you smack the keyboard and turn it on (a nice feature) and not have to find a pen to push a tiny reset button! lol.... anyways is that true on yours as well?

    You do plan to cut out the fan area on the back right? That with the downwards muffler whatsit practically defeats the purpose of having the fan in the first place!

    And how does this thing compare to a PC60 (or equivalent) for size?

    My power cable is labeled as "POWER SW" so Lian Li must have gotten it straight by the time I got my case. Yes, I will be cutting that 120mm vent in the back because that's where my radiator will be going. I have a Black Ice Xtreme that I will be using. I will be drilling 2 holes for the barbs to run through.

    As for the size, it's roughly the same. It sits a little higher because of the wheels on the bottom, but otherwise, it's pretty close.

    I love your ideas with this case. I would love to sell my Yeong Yang cube and get one of these puppies too.


    On a side note, you seem to have a lot of techy kit layin around. I saw an antec/cheiftec case in there and a rackmount setup hiding in the background. got any pics of your other stuff? im just a lil curious.
