Alright I am finally off school for the summer and my computer needs an overhaul or better yet I need a new case. I have been using a corsair 900D and man has it been good to me cheers.gif however I have always wanted to isolate my radiators from all the main components, I hate dust, and I figure the Thermaltake Core WP100 would do the job. Its definitely not as gorgeous as the 900D but I think with some makeup it and a couple of beers it can be.. drunken.gif I am planning on some fabrication mainly the front mesh panels and I am thinking smoked acrylic panels to allow for a nice frontal view, lol bigeyedsmiley.png and other modifications.





I will miss the 900d...rip 2013-2016 best dam case I ever had

Subbed. Your 900D looks pretty sweet, you got a lot to live up to there.

Thanks I should have definitely dedicated a build for the 900D at the time. I definitely dedicated a decent amount of fabrication to the case

So First of all I kinda disliked the front grill of this case so I went ahead and replaced it with some acrylic paneling, please note i do not have access to a cnc machine otherwise this would be better put together. Also I am planning to stick a double helix reservoir right behind the acrylic window
Anyhow here is the work so far







next thing is to make a plate for the motherboard area, clean things up

Alright I cutout the back plate for the motherboard, cant believe how well the dremel worked the cuts came out real nice. I also got a thicker front panel to make it more flush. I also made the cutout for the mid plate for the psu to breathe, I am planning to completely enclose the psu, thumb.gif
