So I finished my build in Silverstone's Rv01 case last summer and this summer I'm planning on taking everything out and turning it into a brand new case by modding it.

There aren't many rv01 mods on here so this could get interesting

I'm planning on starting a build log, just not yet . The main goals are:
-Accentuate the height of the case (if you've seen one they're huge)
-Emphasize the sci-fi look of the case without getting too "alien-ware" or "bling". The goal here is to incorporate lighting while keeping it classy .
-Fans, Fans, Fans, and more fans. As of right now, there are only three in the case. Two 180mm fans in the false floor, and one 120mm fan in the top. I'm staying air cooled for now so I'd like to turn it into a total wind tunnel.
-Personalize it with my Steam name, I'm not sure If I'm allowed to say it here, but I'm new so I'll leave it to the pictures.

As of right now here is the plan.



I'd like to detach the plastic front panel, cut holes into it, and fill them with hexagonal modder's mesh painted black. I'll illuminate the edges with blue led strips tucked away behind the plastic. I will repeat these same steps on top of the case and the side vents, where there is factory installed mesh.

The point of all this mesh is to allow more airflow into previously stagnant spaces such as the drive bay area and the HDD cage. I'll remove the bottom two or three drive bays and the two right-most HDD slots, like ProStock did in the bloodrage mod (My inspiration) and install two black 140mm fans there.

So what do you guys think? This is my first mod and it's being done on a case that doesn't get much love around here. Any tips would be appreciated.
