(too graphic? genuine.
This is where it all begins. A dead mosquito on a paper. In my school. During a test. A test that & subject that are so boring that even the teacher openly admits it. Swedish. Swedish, Course 3.
It is during these moments that the best ideas spring into my mind. So while I was busy swatting mosquitoes with my notes and maybe even passing the test I started scribbling something to my extra paper. To my surprise what I drew was a computer case, a tech bench.
(genuine first sketch
I had already thought about building a custom watercooling loop and I started to draw more. I drew a loop and a computer to the case. At this point the test was about the end so I started doing some important Swedish grammar. But the idea about the case stuck to my head.
After the test I really started to think about building the case and buying the loop. It was going to be my holiday soon and I decided that I might as well do something else than game and browse OCN all day long for 2.5 months. I was going to build the case I had scribbled on my test.
A day or tow after, I finally had the time to start with my project and what better thing for that than Google sketchup?
In the images different parts of the case are completely out of proportions and that is not quite what the finished case will look like but it was enough for me to continue.
All I now had to do was make the arrangements that I mention in the Introduction part of my OP.
