Hi my name is Mickee from the Philippines, I am back with another casemod I hope you guys would like it.

 

For the materials I will be mainly using 3mm thick plexiglass and some spray cans.

 

PC Hardware:

Chassis: Tecware Alpha

System Fans: ID Cooling Fan NO12025

Watercooling: Thermaltake Pacific watercooling components

CPU: Core i5 6600K

Motherboard: MSI Z170A Gaming Carbon

GPU: GEFORCE® GTX 950 2GD5T OC

PSU: Bitfenix Fury 550G

HDD: 1TB Western Digital Blue

SSD: TBA

RAM: TBA

 

Here we go!

 

Base case

Disassembly

To come up with a new look for the front panel, I removed the wire mesh and the honeycombed grill beneath it then made some acrylic panels using a motosaw.

Painted the case matte black as well as the 

 

new front panel.

Side panels from white to silver.

Since the case has a built in PSU shroud I decided not to change it and just add a few details.

Painted

I do not have a solid plan for this build to be honest that's why the design in my mind keeps on changing. (Yes this is not good a practice)

I ditched the original sidepanels and created new ones using plexiglass.

Painted.

I will use these sliders to mount the new panel 

 

on the backside of the case.

Here it is mounted, Im quite happy with how it turned out and everything can still be easily accessed from the back of the case if needed be.

I have also started to apply the weathering details using spray cans, dry towels, sand paper and a paint brush.

Gave the front I/O ports a little tilt.

More acrylic for the side panel (front side) air 

 

vent style.

Additional details for the new sidepanel.

Glued together, painted and weathered.

Those are all for now, I will be back to introduce and install the PC Components that we will use for this mod or If additional ideas pop up then I will be screwed :duh: but so far I really am enjoying this and that is the most important part :)

 

Thanks see you on the next update,

I felt that the space next to the dragon was a bit empty.

 

So again I grabbed the rattle can, tissue, paint brush and sand paper :)

A sort of update, We're kinda' way past this stage but I have nothing to do as of the moment regarding this mod because I have finished about 95% of the work. So while waiting for the other essential PC parts to arrive I checked the videos that I took while working on this project and found that I did make a quick unboxing :) so here it is sorry about the quality as I am still learning how to do this :D

 


 

Thanks! :)

But wait I want to give it a little old school sci-fi , robotic roughed up machine effect  :D

Sprayed it with Medium Grey, the orange parts between the gaps are still visible so I need to use a small brush for that.

Of course weather it :D
