    So it is time to unveil some more details about my build. As I maintend before it will be focused on white and red color shema with some touches of other colors as well. The name of my project is The White Eagle which is all about my country National Emblem and the eagle within it as which has pretty interest history (legend).

    Hi Guys :)
    Ok it is time for some small update/information what my mod will be all about. As you all know I will be using TT Core x5 case for this build.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    The case will be modified in couple of ways. First of all the case will be flipped and it will be standing on the front where are the O/I post :) The front will be modified by adding the "feet" to make hole for air intake as well as for the additional lightning potions. In this part will be also mounted the PSU so I will take advantage of the original dust filter.

    Next thing which I will made is the at the top let say "top cover" from a plexi. It will be playing a dual role. First of all it will cover all of the cables and form a coherent whole with the X5. Secondly it will contain illuminated Eagle logo with the project name in "3d" effect.

    Here is an quick "sketch" to only show you what I am talking about :p

    [​IMG]

    What's more the next thing which I am going to do is to cut the whole where on the original top of the case were the ventilation area. I those holes I will make two custom rezerwuar which will be housing two types of fluids :) I will also cut holes for the filports for easy filling the loops.

    A lot of you were asking me why I need two X5 cases. So mainly for modding perseus because I need to get a lot of parts from the second case to make it work for my project for example double window panels, mounting brackets for dual 360 rads and much more :)

    [​IMG]

    It will be more and more modifications in future some planded an some which will appear in process of creation and I will definitely cover all of them here.

    P.S Sorry for pore photos but I just get back from the long journey to my family house and I made the photos when it was dark.

    With all those pictures and shots I feel like I am actually there admiring the build quality of these parts with you.

    Thank you for the pictures, you have a knack and skill for taking the items at multiple angles as if I am holding and looking at them right there! They are built really nicely, Great detail! and that is thick!
