    ....(((((Introduction)))))....

    Over the past few months, I've had some time off from modding. Life has been a big influence on not doing anything, LoL. During this time I've had the extreme pleasure of making some nice contacts and talking about builds, designs and other tech type of items. As time has came by, I was putting some feelers out about a build for the CES show coming up in January of 2013. This has been a dream of mine for some time now and its a true honor that I am able to do this.

    So with out further adieu the case



    ....(((((Case)))))....


    I formerly present Project "iLLuSion"

    [​IMG]

    Yes the Phantom 820



    ....(((((Planned mods)))))....

    New Side window with a custom made name plate
    Using the in house Hue to make a custom lit motherboard plate
    a redesign on the top section of the case.
    If time allows a redesign of the front case footing
    and a few other things.



    ....(((((Hardware)))))....

    AMD CPU????
    RAM???

    ....(((((Final pics)))))....

    I been designing a few items that I am going to be using with this mod... first off is this
    [​IMG]
    Some custom made fan grills
    [​IMG]
    more logos with a case badge
    [​IMG]
    Now getting to some modding... The start of the window...
    [​IMG]
    The window is now cut.. putting it back on the case.. looks freaking awesome.
    [​IMG]
    Time to remove some internal components
    [​IMG]
    With the removal and the window back on all filled and straight.




    Next Question....

    Should I go big or small

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    I think the smaller strip works better. Gives you more contrast between the two colors.

    Ups... I think that you cut too much the window in the side panel... maybe a different cut would match better with that case's design (only an opinion! ^^')

    Talking about that stripe, as LPRaver89 said, it would be better the smaller strip as it gives you more equality between the two colours.

    Great job!

    The window was cut like that for a reason that will be seen later on... But ty LPRaver and Ra6 for the input... small is going to take it all.

    I really hate bad news. NZXTs CEO Pulled all builds on released cases. They will only display a new unreleased case for CES. This means my build will not get going to CES in this format and my sponsors will be pulling out, due to this event.

    I under stand that this is out of my hands, but it really sucks. I was looking forward to some hardcore modding this weekend too. This project will go on, but on a longer time frame now.

    DP out.
