This is a continuation of an earlier mod I worked on.
Well it would be more accurate to say that it's a fundamental change in what I envisioned for this case.
In this mod I will be completely changing the look and feel of an old Silverstone rv02 case that I have done some work on before “to accommodate a 3x180 rad”.
There are some reasons for what I am doing besides trying to make a cool mod.
1. I was considering buying a new case but could not find one I liked that could accommodate the rad I have.
2. I need practice working with plexiglass as I’m starting a build with a friend sometime next year. “plexiglass only.”
Currently the mod is planned to span about 5-6 months where I will get new hardware and cooling fittings from the US as some can't be bought here in the EU yet “sucks”.
The general styling and color of the mod will be white with a dim glow to it hence the name Ghostly raven “some black as well”.Hardware:

Ill leave it as a surprise
Well anyhow I'm almost done with the new frame.
Yes I'm removing all the old plastic from the case and doing the mod on the metal frame only.
I'm also turning the case so the bottom faeces forward, basically turning it into a high tower.
Here's some pics of the case so far.
You will have to excuse me here. Did not think I would run out of white spray.
And on a side note. These last pic's where taken just after I came back from the hospital.
I somehow managed to cut myself on the back of my hand quite severely “could see tendons and all”
