    Thank you! :) Im almost finished with the repaint of the case, just the last layer of matt clearcoat left. This time I will be putting the case together with M3 screws instead of rivets, cause I like to have my cases modular if I have to take it apart again. Im also going to change...

    Hello everyone! So I finally finished Cold Winter, the third version. I went back and checked when I started the first project log for this case, 2011-01-04, a while ago. However, this mod has meant a lot to me, this was the second serious project I made and the first one I was really...

    Well as of right now, I say this mod is finished. It has been a lot of fun to make a real casemod, I have of course built PC's in cases before, but not modded them that much, mostly been making scratchbuilds. But I learned a lot and I think there will be more casemods from me in the future. I...

    Its been too long since I updated, so here it is. I have finished the loop, shroud and installed OS and so on. The last two things left to do is to fix some scratches and install some lights. I dont want to use a u-channel around the window edges and I dont really know if I want to have it...

    Thank you! Time for a little update. I received the last hardware this week. Some Noiseblocker fans and a EK X-Res 100 DDC. Really love these fans. 2x 120mm and 1x 92mm PWM versions of Noiseblockers Blacksilent. Really fits this mod, still looks very clean though. This res pump combo is...

    Today I was nervous while modding, why? Because I was soldering cables to the pcb of my GTX 460. Now why did I do that? Well this is a small case, the GPU is 210mm long and the PSU 170mm, so from the powerconnector on the GPU to the PSU isnt long, why route the cables around the back of the...

    Got a small update today. The powersupply is now sleeved in all black. I tried to make the cable management as good as possible. I really love the p-clips. This is how it looks anyhow. I will cover the SSD with a plate from the front that Ive cut, so it gets the same finish as the outside case...

    Its awesome! :) I installed the hardware to measure out where to put different things. Everything really fit together, I cant wait to paint the bare aluminium black. As you see its not a problem to fit a 240mm radiator, this one is 30mm wide but I could have a 45mm if I wanted too. Im...
