[Worklog] HTPC SilverStone Grandia GD05B "Sunroof"

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!!

Starting new thread and new project with my HTPC. As you all know this case is a black box with simply and classic lines. I want to build a sunroof on it and make it look better inside.

Here is our start point

AMD 3870k
Asus F1a55m
8gb
Asus 650 ti

Let's go to work:
1. Taking parts off

2. Changing ssd location

I made some new holes like this

I no longer need this anymore (hard drives bay)

3. Painting black inside

4. Preparing new materials and components

3. Sleeping with paracord. It has been my first time using it so it is not perfect

4. Testing

I would like to see more of this as well. Don't loose heart just because people don't post immediately. Always nice to see unique ideas. thumb.gif

Thanks!!

I have ordered the red plexiglas. it will take 10 days to be ready. At the same time I have changed the location of the black cables from the front panel.
I will upload more pictures next week.

Thanks again!!
