Hi, My name is ‘Gurt11’ or Geert, as my parents called me. I live in Belgium and I’ve been building computers and gradually advancing in modding-territories for some years now. As I have now turned 24, graduated from uni and am about to make steps to build a life of my own, I thought it would be nice to do one more mod. But it had to be a special one. Again something I hadn’t done before. I introduce you to my Specced ITX case. SPECCED ITX 1.0 The idea of the build was to make everything smaller, but not to lose performance or cooling capabilities. I come from a Corsair 600T, which you’ll see soon as a proper goodbye was in order. I have some dremeling experience, I know what a file is, and most important: I took quite some time (at least half a year *-)) to come up with a design for a case that was 1) possible to make myself, without any fancy machinery , and 2) could fit everything I wanted it to. Features: - ITX motherboard - Full sized graphics card - ATX PSU - Watercooling: 360mm rad + 120mm rad. Every mod begins with old fashioned pen and paper! A basic SketchUp soon followed: Measurements: 260mm (W) x 425mm (L) x 276mm (H) (double front included, feet excluded) The mind is made up, the marks are drawn, the wallet is (/was) full(-ish). Let’s GO! Materials out of which it will be constructed: - Aluminium. - Plexi. - Something that should resemble wood. (veneer was the first idea) - Glass. Saying goodbye to my trusty 600T. You have been of use for long enough!
