Project: Odio

post #1 of 69
Thread Starter 
Project: Odio

The Case: Lian Li PC-V2000B Plus II
The Modder: Trendy
The Goal: To Produce a Modified Computer Case Without Losing the Sleek Style of the Stock Look.

I had a request for me to start a worklog for my latest mod project, so here it is, in the text. My goal with this mod isn't to change the entire feel of the computer case, but more to accent the already sleek and cool style that the Lian Li PC-V2000B and to add my own personal spin. Although I could end up changing the case's look entirely.

Planned Mods (so far):


[ ] Side Panel Window w/ Two-Way Mirror Acrylic – Seamless

[ ] Wire Sleeving – All Wires, Except Main Motherboard Power Cable and Three SATA Cables

[ ] Watercooling Routing/Fixtures - Fillport Top of Computer Case (Danger Den Delrin Fillport), Inlet & Outlet Holes in Mid-Divider for Tubing Leading to Radiator, Inlet & Outlet Holes in Inside Drive Bay Covers for Tubing Leading to Pump

[ ] Radiator Fan Shroud – Possibly Two Empty Fan Housings Covered with Thin Aluminum

[ ] Painted CD-RW/DVD Combo Drive Casing – Possibly a Cheap Chrome/Silver Metallic Paint, or a Simple Black Paint Job

[ ] Cold Cathode Switch Bus – Two Rocker Switches w/ LEDs Mounted to a Lian Li Black Drive Bay Cover. One Switch to Control UV Cathodes, One Switch to Control Blue Cathodes.

[ ] Acrylic Drive Bay Cover w/ “Odio†Logo Etching & Blue Cold Cathode or LED Back Light (Possibly Made From Two-Way Mirror Acrylic Scraps)

[ ] “Odio†Logo - I Will Be Creating a Logo, Haven't Decided How Yet.

[ ] Hard Drive Bay Mod – Cut Removeable Hard Drive Racks To Fit In Same Compartment With Radiator, Helps to Hide More Clutter from Window-View

Yup. It's a little more subtle than saying "Project: Hate", plus it sounds cool to say it. . .

Sadly, I figured out my camera is completely devoid of battery life and I have no AA batteries sitting around. I managed to snap a really crappy photo of the beginning cut on the window, but decided to stop and let my dremel cool down for the night. I'll begin work on the window tomorrow after I run out to the store and get some batteries.

Until the pictures are up, here's what I intend the window to look like (although my case is the black version, not silver)

I like the presentation of your Case Mod. The Lian-Li cases are
a solid case, and the amount of Mods that have been done to
them is limitless. But with that in mind, your case represents
yourself, and Lian-Li makes you look real good!

Good Luck

I have made progress on the window. I got the cut finished, still need to do a bit more filing, but it's more or less done. I also cut out the acrylic.


This was my method to get the straightest cut possible:

I used a metal ruler and cut very slowly with a low-speed on my dremel. Then I moved up to a higher speed, and so on, until I had a definate groove in the metal to work my dremel along at a higher speed. In all, it took me about 3 hours to cut out the window.




All done ^_^

Lines drawn out on masking tape.

Cut is finished in less than 1 minute.

I still need to figure out how to mount the window to the case. I'm either going to use double-sided tape or strong glue (my gorilla glue = busted open all over my scrap acrylic )
