When InWin first released their 901 I think almost all of us had one idea or another about how we wanted to make it into our own.
I was fortunate enough to get my hands on one of these dream cases.
Here is my take on the 901, and my vision of what it could be. Thank you for dropping in, and welcome.
First impression of when I got it about 6 months ago, I was blown away by the attention to detail in the machining.
First actual modification, converting the case to mATX or something along these lines.
In my defense, there was no mATX model, and the 901 was a little big for the form factor it houses.
And some test fitting to see if it actually works.
Here is where the idea is born. Since there is glass all around, a very good oportunity to display as much of the hardware as possible.
Slotted out a space in the tray for the bracket.
Sadly the paint on the inner part of the case basically falls of just by looking at it. Looks like a basic paint job. No powder coating, no primer or etching base coat.
The storage stack I used in the aircooled version, not sure if it can or will be used in this project.
The Asus Xonar STX actually fits, and is screwed in place.
The old molex splitter I used to ease cable routing with a non-modular PSU. One molex converts into two molex and one 3-pin fan connector.
Got some paint onto the main structure of the case, respraying the original parts and the conversion.
It's not a factory look but it will work.
