[Build Log] THOR v2 Kurruppt's Edition

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I've Been Waiting To Build A Custom Case Since I Was 11 Years Old After Playing With A Whole 2 Car Garage Full To The Ceiling With 286's And 386's But Never Had The Money Or Tools To Do It So I'm Building As I Go.
After Getting My Rosewill Thor V2 Case I Didn't Really Need Any Modding Done Until I Got My Asus Crosshair V Forumla Board.
So I Decided That I Kind Of Wanted To Match The Theme Of That Or Lease Of The Black And Red.

So After Searching The Net I Couldn't Find Anyone That Yet To Modded A Rosewill Thor Case To I Guess I Might Be The First.
I Am Reusing My Old Hardware For Now.
