[12-21-2009] The Return January 2010 Mod of the Month Nomination Hi Bit Tech! I saw a long time ago the Pype Invasion cases and was more or less inspired by the unique shape. While different, it was still a pretty practical case arrangement. In the end I merged the ideas of a custom case and the X shaped chassis together. My goals were for something fairly small (it is smaller than an Invasion) and LAN party oriented, packed full liquid cooling, plenty of space for hard drives and other gear while staying slim and logical. And of course, bling it up wherever possible Stage 0.0 :: Design 0.1 Concept Sketches 0.1.1 Concept Sketchup is good an all, but nothing beats paper and pencil for me 0.1.2 Scale Drawing My second revision scale sketch 0.2 Full Scale Study Model Then I broke out Mr. Foamcore to make a full sized model. Im not sure why but I can never get a real feel for something until it really exists. - The tray is a Lian Li microATX without the back plate. Mockup for a Danger Den MAGII LE. I have read that they have a high failure rate, so this might change. The Invasion has support for a 120mm sized rad, my version takes it to a full Danger Den 240 GT. The lower pods will contain hard drives and optical drives, though I haven't quite decided on the arrangement just yet.
