EIZO FlexScan T68 Monitor – Gaming Case Mod 2009


Worklog
By Coolone


a. Name of mod:
EIZO FlexScan T68 Monitor – Gaming Case Mod 2009


b. Description of my case:

Idea
When my fantastic EIZO FlexScan T68 died I felled very sorry since we already have been friends through 8 years where the EIZO FlexScan T68 monitor have given me the best pictures I ever have seen on a monitor. So I thought this should not be the end of my great EIZO so my imagination was questioned how could I still get anything out of my old monitor, even if it not could deliver any pictures anymore?

Since I like to have a PC case with my one touch I thought it could be nice to make a case mod where nearby all used hardware was visible. This was the beginning of my EIZO FlexScan T68 case mod project, where you could see the hardware I have used for my project through the acrylic glass I have build into the front of my old monitor.
