    Hi-diddly-hey modderinos!

    Welcome to the project log of my entry in the Thermaltake 2020 Case Mod Challenge; Project: I.S.A.C. - themed on Tom Clancy's The Division 2, a game by Ubisoft Massive.

    For the competition, 5 of us have been given the same components to do a case mod with and we have until 15th June to complete our mods. I'll try and post regular updates to keep you updated on the progress. A huge thanks to all of the sponsors for making this competition possible; Thermaltake UK, Scan Computers UK, AMD, ASUS and Seagate. First off lets have look at the parts we'll be using for the mod:

    Yeh there's one of Alex and one of GN Steve. Just a little bit of fun to kick it off with, along with the fittings pipe and 'totally real' fire :hehe:

    Looking forward to you bashing the bejesus out of the case mate.

    That's the correct technical term right?

    "fittings pipe"
    I just figured you were a stoner. Apparently we are supposed to just show tolerance for thing like them stopping for green lights now.

    Oh not at all, I'm just a bit fat. The pipe was mearly a prop for comical effect. A barrow extendy bit and an ancient copper alphacool elbow.

    Thanks :thumb: I was going to originally have a working rig at the end and have my avatar as the desktop (as I do anyway), but time constraints forbid it.

    I've sometimes done builds where I have an idea in my head of what I want to do, I might even have sketched some quick plans of what I want, but when I come to actually do the build I find things don't fit in like I thought they would. Sometimes it can be solves with a couple more parts or fittings, but sometimes when things REALLY don't fit, you have to scrap then plan all together, or get drastic with a Dremel. :dremel::dremel::dremel:

    I had to make sure that all the components worked, so what better way to do that and get to know the case properly than do a complete build in it! Whilst this is quite different from the final configuration of the mod, it has allowed me to evaluate some of my design ideas while building and try/figure a few things out.

    So sit back, put your feet up and enjoy the ride.

    Just a few pictures from the test build, includes some "behind the scenes" (and by scenes i mean motherboard tray )

    A Spaghetti mess of cables

    Cable Management just means you managed to get them in, right?

    In these difficult times there's no tissue available for leak testing. Fingers crossed!

    Let's hope this isn't a warning :worried:

    Pretty from pretty much any angle.

    A look with the lights on (wish I'd taken a few more picks like this)

    All working A-OK
    [​IMG]

    While editing my mouse kept catching on something and I saw this poking off the bottom. 6-7 years of owning my R.A.T. 7 and this sticker has only just come off.
    [​IMG]

    I never thought editing would be such a PITA.

    Stay tuned Crap fans! Another little update should be hitting you soon. Same Crap time, same Crap Channel.

    Craptastic!

    As for cables, yeah my policy is stuff it in and make it pretty (also the name of my sex tape).
