CaseLabs S3 MATX Mod Finished! 2016.03.13

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hi guys!
I started a new mod into a CaseLabs S3 . I've never seen somebody who did this, so let me show you my worklog about the modification and custom painting.

My expectations:

-space for MATX mobo
-space for custom watercooling or decent air cooling
-big window on the side
-custom wiring
-custom painting

Hardware:

-Core i7 5960x
-Gigabyte x99M Gaming 5
-32gb 2400mhz Crucial Ballistix Sport
-Evga Gtx 750
-EVGA G2 1600W
-Crucial M500 240gb
-CaseLabs S3

First, I recieved the case. I've got a good price on a used S3 case which is in good condition, so I picked it up. Here it is, like a brand new! smile.gif































Thats it for now. Im already in the making of the back and side panel, currently im waiting for the laser cutter, to make the backplate. More updates soon!thumb.gif

Subbed! Hope you can pull it off! I also have an S3 and might want to do the same mod at some point!
Keep up the good work!
