Awesome Sauce! that's covered in it!
Nice MB-tray action!
BTW, did you lower the HD rack at some point?
Tks for yours comments guys !
@Darkened : yes I reversed the handles and I lowered the hdd rack for (I think) a better finish
I wasn't sure if lowering the rack was needed, but I must admit it looks better this way
but I'm not finish with this hdd rack lol !! I just buy 4 silent blocs for the noise, I hope it can help !

Generally isolating spinning hard drives gives good results when it comes to noise. Remember to report back after you've tested them (interested in them myself)
I'm a bit late to the party here, really nice work!!!! Did you hand drill all that on the first page? Will be taking some hints and tips from you if i decide to rip my V1000 apart!
How do you find it working with the alu?
Got my vote, M8! Keep it up - realy good work!
Thanks, I really appreciate
@jopers1986: yes I hand drill all this holes but with the help of a template I create.
Working the aluminum is really easy than steel, because much softer.
So, good luck with your lian li
Hi there !!
Thanks again for all your kind words and to continue to follow my project, I really really appreciate !
Special UPdate, because it's a special day for me and for the project !!
I'm in contact with them since several weeks but now it's time, I can officially present you this little company not well known, no I'm kidding ... because it's func ... Oh my God this is FUNC !!
It's so awsome because it's been something like 10 years I know Func's products (since I was 15 and started playing CS 1.5 actually !) and I know that these products are of very good quality.
They will support this project by providing all their last gaming peripherals, like their headset HS-260, or their keyboard KB-460 and their mice MS-3² with the Surface 1030² mouse pad.
Thanks a lot Func for your trust !!
I will post pictures of all this awsome peripherals as soon I received these candy, I just need to wait !!
To wait, a little teaser :
: Jawdrop:This work is really awesome! Congrats!
Thanks to Func for their article on Facebook !!

Don't forget to suscribe to their channel !!
Your metal and jigsaw work is phenomenal!
It's time for an amazing Update !!
This is some pictures of the case, finished at 90% !! The last 10% is the cable management I need to do with the new components I'll buy after my trip in Australia
the case on the desk
the slot for the optical drive
the front panel
And the new window from thelaserhive !! I'm really impressed by the precision of the engravings I love it !!
(ohh the beautiful molex !! Sorry it was just to plug a light for the pictures to show you the engraving !)
and another view of the desk
But... ? Don't you think this desk seem so empty ?!
Sorry, but I can't wait more before opening the package !!
!! OMG !! It's just so awsome to see all this pacakages on my desk !!
So... just need to open all this peripherals !!
So, I start with the Func Surface 1030² L
The package is really sober, and this little orange ribbon
He got two sides, one more fast than the other according what you prefer.
The show must goes on with gaming keyboard Func KB-460
Here, the package is a little less sophiticated than the mousepad, but he is really protective
the keyboard is just sublime, and unadorned.
We continue with the gaming mice Func MS-3²
Here too, the package is really protective, the mice is well protected inside here plastic box, and she can be visble thanks the "door" on the package.
I think she find her new place
and the unboxing of the gaming headset Func HS-260
The package use the same "concept" as the mouse with the little door closed thanks two magnets. I like !
Hzre too, the headsed is well protected, he can travel safely
And now, all this beautiful peripherals on the desk
Again, a really big thanks to Func, for their help and their trust in this project !!
I so love the look of this casemod, that i made an account to reply!
could you post a picture of the pc running with the side panel off?
Greetingz from Holland!
Thanks a lot for your kind words guys
@Japzilla: just because you specially create an account for me, I'll specially take few pictures for you !!
As I said previously, I'll go in Australia in 2 months for 1 year, so the hardware inside the case is approximatively the same I used for my apple cube (yeah it's an itx MB inside )
I'll buy new hardware when I come back after my trip !!
edit: pictures !!
overal the build looks nice! with some new hardware (an atx board hihi) it will look even better, cable management will be easier as well!
have a save trip mate! have fun in Australia!
new hardware... humm...
i see a some blue parts in there so an MSI like X79A-GD65 or Asus P9X79 might fit colourvice but guess those 2 would be an expensive upgrade since its Socket 2011 and would require a new CPU...
could also get new heatspreaders on the RAM and cover the SSD and go for the new black\red thing all the Z97 boards is going for...
tks guys !
For the MB, I also see the intel DZ87KLT-75K ... I think it could fit too inside the case !! Here too I'll need to change my CPU (s1150)
