Dark Matter Scratch Build: Who am I? A bit about me; a few years ago I suffered a traumatic brain injury that caused my brain to hemorrhage. After spending a long time in intensive care I kept thinking about case modding. Before long, its all I could think about. After recovering from my injury I was left with epilepsy and brain that no longer functioned like before. I started to look at things differently. Inspiration for mods began to pop up in the oddest places. I eventually became overthrown with modding ideas and designs. Soon I decided it was time to start. Theres nothing quite like being in the grocery store and yelling, “thats it, 45 degree angles” and then running out of the store like a mad man. No matter what I was doing, it all kept coming back to case modding. Today case modding is my life and it allows me to be truly happy. For some case modding is a hobby but, for me its a lifestyle. And So It Begins: Why: I decided to do this scratch build, “Dark Matter” for several reasons. I was tired of limiting my mods to the confines of a mass manufactured case. There are a ton of great cases out there but, I wanted to do something my style from the ground up. The design phase began once I started getting close to completing the StarCraft Day Zero case. However, a lot of the main features for this build have been planned over the last year. During the scratch build I will be using new modding techniques as well as using materials that aren't always associated with case modding. If you like seeing original creations and have a love for the truest form of modding; you're in the right place.

I am excited to share My latest project here at the ModZoo :D The Plan for the case is to create a horizontal motherboard ,removable and Watercooled Apparition Apparitional experience, an anomalous, quasi-perceptual experience Vision (spirituality), inspirational renderings, generally of a future state and/or of a mythical being Marian apparition, in which the Virgin Mary is believed to have supernaturally appeared Ghost, the disembodied spirit or soul of a deceased person Doppelgänger, the ghostly double of a living person Bilocation, the ability/instances in which an individual or object appears to be located in two distinct places at the same instant in time Update 1 The cases for the build are 2 Antec P180 mini's :blink: I will need to remove Both motherboard trays hard drive bays and completely unrivet one of the cases so I can make the doors work few shots of the general layout of the build Backside before cutting Let the cutting begin :P Few spare parts after the Carnage Using a Caselabs ATX tech bench for the removable motherboard tray and with a temp gpu for testing Build will have dual 7970's with Ek waterblocks :) few shots of what the front will look like Update 2 will be the hardware list :rolleyes:
