Ammo Box Build

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is my First Case Mod ever, I've been building computers for a while now and decided to make my own case now as I've wanted to for a long time.
Higher Res Images I plan on using an actual camera later rather then my phone

Not sure how far I'm going to go with this build, I might end up painting the box, I might end up setting up a water cooled system and cutting a window in the side and setting up lights. if anyone has good ideas I'd love to hear them, at this point I'm open to anything.


Parts Used so Far:
  • Ammo Box 40$ Dimensions 17.25"w x 14"d x 7.5"h Inside
  • HSPC 93$ 14"w x 9.5"d x 8.5"h with custom ordered legs (thats what they call them) to adjust the height down to 7"

current plan


if I left anything out let me know

5-22: Ordered the HSPC Tech Bench should arrive 5-26 also contacted support they said they would send me custom made supports to fit in my ammo box.

I think you overpaid for the box a little, they are $12 at the surplus shop here in town. I built one of these last year, and everybody I know loves the case.
My worklog.

Also, good luck with the build. If you make a standard layout it will make a very nice mATX, with some experimenting like I did you can fit a full ATX fairly easily.

yea they charge quite a bit but its the only place around here
your case looks cool thou, how did you cut your holes? a jig saw or what? I'm not sure what I'll use or if I'm going to cut any holes. I kinda wana go for a stealth setup, walk in with an ammo box open the top and theres a pc inside.
