    Hi There, here Just_mexel with a new Casemod, maybe you know me and know a few of my little casemods, i am busy on 2 at the moment, waiting for parts and ideas, also a few RMA items, so i want to start a new one, this one is more simple, and the parts i need for it will be sponsored and a few i must buy for myself.

    Well, here is the Blue Box, a cleen casemod with plexi panels, sleeving, UV lights, and watercooling.

    The plan i to build the stryker with plexi panels, hide the cables and other parts, also do a clean watercooling setup, there will be a PSU cover, with a 250mm tube on top, pump and little 12cm tube will be on top, Only the CPU will be watercooled, GPU i must look for it when i have more budget.

    After this one you will see a nice testbench buildlog.

    Hardware list.
    Asus P67 Sabertooth, just got it back from RMA, network chip broken.
    CM 850 PSU
    CM Storm Stryker
    Phobya watercooling
    EK waterblock CPU cooler.

    Sponsors.

    Not all items i was getting sponsored, a few i buy for myself, and some parts was a good discount. And my special tnx will go to them all.
