Hi everyone and welcome to my project log! I have been in to modding for a while now and have done a few little mods here and there, having taken much inspiration and ideas from the many talented modders on this forum and others. Unfortunately in Australia the modding scene is nowhere near as developed as it is in the Us and as such it has been really hard to source many of the products that I would have liked to use is some of the mods I’ve done. Things have been getting better in recent years and so I’ve decided to do a proper full case mod. The victim I have chosen for this mod is a Lian-Li PC-V1000 that I picked up second hand of EBay. I chose this case because I really like the look of the case and the interior layout, for the most part anyway (you’ll see ). Plans for the case are as follows: Exterior: Re-spray most likely in red with chrome accents RESET BUTTON (what were you thinking Lian-Li!?) Carry Handle Radiator grill Stealthed bays (likely mirrored front panel) New side window (likely mirrored) Interior: Re-spray black with chrome accents Better cable management inside the case Create better division in interior of the case Water cooling with triple radiator (all internal) These are the things that I really want to achieve. Keep in mind that some things may change due to my A.D.D modding style where I tend to move from one thing to another and come back to things later on. I tend to let the mod take me where it needs to go rather than have to many set goals as it tends to be both a lot more fun and usually ends up a better mod because it’s evolving as you go along. Thanks for taking the time to read this rather long Introduction and plan and feel free to voice your opinion or suggestions. So here we go!!! First thing to go will be these series of holes which will Impede airflow. So I taped The back fan grill up and began sketching out the cuts. I used my mobile phone to light up the holes so I can see where the holes finish. Not to bad... After testing all possible mounting positions the only place that I was going to fit the radiator internally was the top of the case. Not a massive ammount of room but it fits. The only setback to this is that I will be losing a couple of PCI slots. If you look I you look closely you can see the back grill has already been cut out. I did have a pic but some how between me taking the pic and me uploading it, it went missing Here's a picture of the cut out after 3 Afternoons of sanding through the hard anodized coating on the case. I used oven cleaner which supposedly eats though it but affter repeated coats and 30min sit times before sanding it still took a lot of effort. Please If anyone knows a better way please let me know! Much better if you ask me. I'll be making a customer grill to cover that up later on. I have a bit more done that I'll be uploading over the next few days as it's real late at the moment. I just had a huge day modding and couldn't wait to start sharing my results and ideas with all of you.
