Mods:
Well, since last main mod I have made two custom panels, the back and the top. I wanted to have my motherboard horizontal, kind of like a mountain mods case.

It took me a few weeks to put together because I didn't want to cut the metal in my apartment. Neighbors wouldn't have liked the noise too much.

Kinda glad the mod is done because now I can actually use the computer again.

Probably in the next few months I am going to make a new front panel and new side panels. And, probably replace the vertical supports wit L brackets.

Yikes, I figured I would get a bit better votes seeing as this case hardly resembles what it used to be (it's basically just the front that is the same). Tough critics here. Haha, oh well. I like my case. More mods to come on it.

I just added two pics. The last pic is how the case originally was and the second to last pic was the last mod I did on the case.

Thanks, it was really fun. This was the first time I have ever made my own panels (the top and the back). I was a bit nervous though about mounting the motherboard tray. I had to be really exact with the measurements or else everything wouldn't line up right. Also, with my previous mod, the 2 inside case doors were holding the 2 cases together and with this mod I had to cut those up so I was a bit worried that I was destroying my case, but everything worked out.

Also, I checked out your case mod, it looks pretty cool. Great paint job on the inside, I love all black interiors.

10/10. You took 2 cases, put them together and voilá - 1 case. Smart. Original (well LianLi has a similar, but guess you saved some $$$ there).

Never thought of this myself..

What's the temps inside case?
Temps are good inside the case. My iCPU dle temps are 41c and load is 72c, but when playing games it doesn't get over 50c. Graphics doesn't get over 48c when gaming.

Thanks!!!
