Hey guys my name is Chris and I'm new to the forums here. I'm starting a new build and of course I'm going with the Storm Trooper case... Only the best smile.gif I'm going bigger than ever and balls to the wall out of this world with my build. I have some case mods in the works that no one has seen, tried, or even thought of yet. A quick background about myself, I'm a mechanical engineer and a CNC machinist guru. I've worked in the aerospace and defense industry for years and am planning on using aspects of my background in my build design. Just thought I'd swing by and introduce myself.

Welcome to the Club! I can't wait to see what you have in store for your trooper!

I'm working on my 900D, and I would sure love cheep access to some CNC machinery, but instead, my mid-shelf will most likely be made of 3mm thick birch.

Presently I'm modeling the whole case up in 3D using Solidworks. I think this would be useful not only to me self but everyone else here in the club. From there ill be working on the mechanical design of my build. I love servos, linear drives, pneumatics, and complex mechanisms so I'm planning on incorporating those in there somehow. I'm thinking I want to have an automated swing out hard drive trays. I'm also fooling around with pneumatic or servo driven opening side panels to reveal the motherboard and guys. I'm not going to reveal the best idea until I have a working model but it's going to open some eyes wink.gif

Sounds great, make sure you get a build log going!

When I first got my case just over 1 year ago I was browsing this thread when I saw this build by ub3rg33k...


Ever since I wanted to do something extremely similar.

Today I finally got some 400 grit wet/dry paper and red paint and got to work on the mod...


So I got to work on the front grills...


And the top grills...


However as can be seen I ran out of paint for the middle piece in the top.

Tomorrow morning I'll go back to the hardware store and pick up 2 more cans of the same red paint to bring my ub3rg33k inspired vision to reality.

More pics to come upon completion of the paint mod which includes something for the side panels inspired by no-one but my own vision.

LOL well an hour and 5 minutes but it's close enough. I've made that journey on more than one occasion... I hate waiting for shipping haha. Really great guys out there at Performance PC's, always willing to chit chat.

I'm not saying the anodizing won't work, but if there is just one spot that didn't get covered, then game over. I'm not willing to take that risk unless they put in writing that they will cover the cost to replace all my components.
