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.

Hi everyone and welcome to another build log of mine, this time we are building another PC from scratch out of an old fire pit. There will be lots of modding and custom work done to complete this build and in the end we will be displaying this build at the MSI booth at PAX Australia. Before we get started I need to thank our sponsors for this build because without them these builds would not be possible.

MSI Z77A S01 motherboard Intel Core i5 3570k cpu Scythe Grand Kama Cross cpu cooler (mounting this baby was rocket science due to its size) After getting some new fans (Xigmatek F1253 120mm for the case) & (Xigmatek XAF Series 140mm for the CPU cooler) it looks like this. Interior before Here i actually cut a whole in the side of the case to give it a bigger window.. And i forgot to take pictures!!! :angry:sorry about that. Here's a link to the tutorial i followed to be able to do this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpZoE-zj0-k :thumb:Thank's alot to MNPCtech for the really informative tutorials on case mods!! And i also made me a PSU cover from 3mm thick acrylic. And the local store didnt have any pre-painted acrylic so i spray painted the inside of the acrylic with a high glossy white paint for that really shiny look. Here's a link to the tutorial i followed to be able to do this: Psu cover mod starts at about 13:00 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6MRB6OsYYoc&feature=g-u-u Here is how the case looks like after modding the sidepanel window & with the new PSU cover more
