[Project] Corporal Aris's unnamed Case

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey, first time modding a case here. I am using a case I bought off of Ebay for 20 bucks two years ago. Anyway, I just sent my motherboard in for RMA, and am sending my videocard in soon for a step-up, so I figured now would be the time.
List of mods:
  1. Window
  2. Thowing away front plastic bezel
  3. Removing Fan Grill
  4. Dual fan intake -in front
  5. Hinged door
  6. Custom motherboard tray
  7. Cutting off front part of chassie and making new one
  8. Acrylic front
  9. Front mount card reader, USB, Fan Controller
  10. iPod like look to front: Black metal, seamless clear acrylic, slot load drive, bolted down
  11. Painted Side Panel
  12. Matte Black interior
  13. High Gloss black exterior
  14. Superior cable management
  15. Two handles on top
  16. Rubber feet
  17. Moved HDD Cages

Picture update 1: Wednesday, July 2nd
Here is the case before being taken apart.






More after work.


Picture update 2: Thursday, July 3nd

Here's a nice big sheet of aluminum. Wooty.


I don't have any power tools made for cutting metal, (my dad is a wood guy), so I have to make due with hand tools. Enter Tungsten Carbide.



I bought a flat matte black for the interior and glossy black for the exterior.
