Hi, it's my fourth modding year and coincidentally it's my 4th computer mod! I put this in the work-in-progress forum but it's done. I like to focus on the case until it's done then post the work log biggrin.gif. This time I delve into the Zelda Universe and also experiment with 16-bit character models instead of the normal 8-bit. I got this together in about 5-6 weeks and due to more colors b/c of the 16-bit model it took longer to paint. I wasn't as good at taking pictures as I did last year with the 8-Bit White Mage (which is somewhere on here, ha) but I still got a time lapse of the whole creation of this case.The link to the video is at the beginning/end of this post. This is the smallest case I have made in relation to room of the parts going in. Let's dive right in shall we:

Computer Specs:
AMD Phenom II X4 960T Zosma 3.0GHz
ASUS M4A88T-I Deluxe AM3 AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI Mini ITX
ATI 6950
120 Gig SSD (1 Tb sata storage drive)
G.SKILL 8GB (2 x 4GB) 204-Pin DDR3 SO-DIMM DDR3 1333

The motherboard uses laptop memory which was surprising when I read it but has to do with the motherboards small size.

Starting out with the basic frame of Link's body.

After I began working on his head began to realize the space limitations in my apt and the tools that I needed to use. Also began to contemplate how I was gonna fit a mid to High end Pc inside this small case...

I love it. Didn't see much resemblance in the beginning, but after the paint came on, my doubt disappeared. Looks fantastic! Love the glow in the sword and underneath. Where on earth did you get the sword?
