Hey folks! Time for another mod from me. This came about from a decision where SFFreview.com would sponsor a minecraft tournament at a LAN local to me - Aucklan.com I decided to take the opportunity to introduce local LANners to two things - SFF and mods! I bought two of these cases, one for the prize mod and one for my own mod, and both will be shown in this thread as we go along. 47 days to go to get both done! Right,. lets do this! First of all, I've started with the Aywun A1-1001 chassis. It features a 250w SFX PSU, an external 5.25" bay and an internal 3.5" bay. It's pretty small too - coming in at around 11.5L external volume, under HALF the size of the Bitfenix Prodigy and just over half the size of the Coolermaster Elite 120. I will cover upgrades as we go through. I apologise for the quality of the pictures - my camera has packed a sad so I'm relying on my 3MP smartphone camera! First up - better cooling. The stock case comes with a 80mm front intake spot - and we all know 80mm fans aren't that great for moving air quietly. I've cut a larger fan position here - to fit a 120mm fan! This area will fit a regular 120mm fan if I decide to go with a custom HDD rack, or a Scythe Slim 120 if I keep the standard drive mount. Also done: The addition of a custom power switch and 16x2 line LCD unit. The LCD can be used to scroll messages, RSS feeds and pretty much anything else you can think of (except temps thanks to the plugin being abandoned :( ) Thats all for now - in the next few weeks I will be replacing the window with something nicer, sleeving the PSU, painting the case and adding some special touches :D
Hey, JakeGFX is back to bring you back another great build. I'm back to bring you project : primate. The format of this introduction is copied from project : package.* What is Project : Primate ? It's gonna be a scratch build. Yes I know that scratch build is very adored in this community. But I don't really look at scratch build as kings and queens of the modding community I'm going to use parts from my Blacklist build. What is the inspiration ? Since I'm moving to England for studies. I want to bring a desktop with me. With some thinking and research, I'm gonna build a compact case. Why ? I want to play games. Controllers are like my kryptonite. I mean I love my prodigy but its just too big. So I pick a small computer. I normally hate small form factor cases but I need it whether I like it or not. What to expect ? Things to expect in this build is that this build is hopefully gonna be done in 3 months. I have plans for ordering case parts worldwide. Plus my funding has been cut short meaning I have no funds. Meaning that I have no funds and I have to wait for my pocket money. You will expect disaster, a little bit modding. Some types of rant. You will expecting a very clean build. Meaning no airbrush or any airbrushing details. Only spraypaint will come close to this. A very special window I have planned. Watercooling To start this project off I have a sketch of the front, enjoy
