Hey guys! After the clarification on work-logs, I wanted to share mine with you guys. This is my second case-mod but it is the first time I've made a correct work-log from start to finish. My work is much more professional than my first build and I've learned quite a bit from trial and error. I'm going to plan on using Rampage 4 Gene motherboard and one of new Ivy Bridge-E Chips, probably just the quad core to save a couple bucks. I plan on buying those items on the 15th of October. I'm also probably going to wait for Nvidia to bring out their 790GTX card for this build. As long as it is before the Cooler Master 2013 competition deadline. I might throw something in in the mean time if that's all this build is waiting on.

Goodies from MNPCTECH.com!Acrylic Tubing Reamer from MNPCtech.com PC Window U-channel trim from MNPCtech.com 3M Red Scotchbrite from MNPCtech.com Mnpctech MINI "Grooved" White Derlin Case Feet The first parts I picked up were the case and power supply. I figured I could spend the most time with them while waiting for money for other components. Here they are laid out and I started removing some case panels. After gutting the case, I'm left with my blank canvas! I sanded and washed the plastics to get ready for primer. The primer colors were close to the actual paint scheme. Got the few plastic parts painted then set them aside to continue working the interior. I really like this grey/white scheme. Here are the materials for the internal mods. Acrylic from TAP Plastics. I don't like the grey its daayumn near black so Ill be wrapping panels with a grey carbon fiber material I bought. I'm going to be using MicroRAX for the interior framework. Here is a sneak peek at the sleeving, LutroOs Teleios sleeve. I recently picked up some light grey and I think Ill be using that instead of the dark grey. Got to work cutting acrylic panels. I found that raw measurements and using a clamped fence with a skill saw help making panels perfectly straight and square. I glued in some supports to make a raised bottom panel for a nice flat surface to start on. Here I started adding the microRAX framework. This is where I left off at the end of this past weekend, Hopefully I can get some work done this coming week and its a payday weekend coming up so I should be scooping up some more parts. I absolutely love the microRAX, it really adds a nice professional touch to the project. some screw holes will be socket head and some will be flat head and counter sunk, Ill do that later on.
PROLOGUE I recently acquired a Cooler Master HAF XB case from a friend. At first I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it. I have several builds currently in the works and I wasn't sure I wanted to take another one on, at this time. However, after having the case in my possession for a few short days, I changed my mind. The more I studied the case, the more ideas came to mind. I knew I wanted to do something different with this case. I also wanted to try some techniques that I haven't used before. I wanted to do a completely different theme then any of the other builds I've done before. I wanted something supernatural.
