[Plan]Projekt: Bluez

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Introducing Projekt: Bluz

It is a full Case conversion mod, starting by disassembling the entire case, destroying the stupid bezel, remaking the rear panel, the mother board tray, and side panels from scratch.

The following images were modeled in Google Sketch-Up and do not represent my final creation. They are probably going to change several times.

Also, I have not designed a front, but I will be uploading that soon. It will be overclocked with Red watercooling. YAY! Expect first actual project pictures in ~ 2 weeks. I will be starting by painting the interior.

Anyways, here's a list:

*Custom back panel
*PSU mod (cables come out the side rather than the front. Perfect Cable management.)
*Custom Front Panel
*Black Interior
*Custom side panels
*Water cooling and equitment under everything
*removing some of the HDD mountings
*Stealthed DVD drives
*Possible custom port front panel
*More to come


This is the plastic bezel on front of my case. It is angled, so when you place
the drives in place, the sides stick far enough out to see the metal on the drives. It just looks ugly. I am getting rid of it.

Here is everything removed:


Another view of everything taken out.


This is the new design:

Another:


Possibly, if I have left overs, an Acrylic I/O panel?

those are some pretty good renders for google sketchup , maybe change the final colout to something with more contrast, the black makes it hard to see what youve actually got going on

Nice looking renders there.

That far left fan on the side bottom. Is there enough clearance there? It looks like it might be mainly trying to suck the decal off the side of the PSU, rather than move air?

I'm having a slight brain fart on what I want the front design to be.... Any suggestions?
