Oi lads! After months of wedding planning, moving to a new apartment, new job and everything else Im back, and this time with a casemod, usually Im working from scratch. I will hopefully learn a lot by this small project and get more modding experience. In my opinion I've found the ultimate mini-itx case, the Cubitek Mini Cube. Ever since I installed a computer for a friend in this case I have been in love. It is clean-looking, has A LOT of space behind the motherboard for both cablemanagement and harddrives. My idea of this casemod is to make a "stealth" mod. Everything will be black except for some small details that will be the small contrast to all the black. So I will start by taking the case in two parts and paint everything that isnt black. Then I will be installing a 240mm radiator in the front, yes you heard me, I will be making a big hole in that nice-looking frontpanel. But dont worry, I will be covering it up with one of the most awesome-looking radiator grills from Aquacomputer. This is the hardware Im aiming for, most of it I already have.

Im currently planning and measuring out where to put the radiator and window and stuff like that. But I will update as soon as possible. I hope you like it. While you wait I would really appreciate if you liked to check out my facebook-page. There you will find more updates, giveaways and other computer related stuff. With kind regards Johan Nyman
Hello there Zoo-animals! BitFenix was nice to send me a Colossus mITX to mod it and do something fun with it. So when I received it I started to think about what I wanted to do with it, one thing I wanted to change after reviewing the case was to change the LEDs to another color then blue/red/green. If anyone are interested in doing the same I will post a simple step to step guide here how to do it yourself. Thank you BitFenix and Inet for giving me this case and some fans to play around with. I made a window on the sidepanel that followed the lines of the LEDs. Installed a smaller U-channel around the edge of the sidepanel too, I dont like U-channels but when I found this one I changed my mind, this one is smaller and cleaner. If you remove the frontpanel of this case you will find this small thing installed behind it. This is the LED-chip. And this is what it looks like if we remove it, the entire LED-bars on this case is powered by two single leds. I made my own little plate and lined it up with the lightbars. Then I soldered together my own LEDs that connects to a regular fan-port. And tada, this is the result. I will keep tweaking it so it will be even better. But if you want to do this it is pretty simple. Remove the old LED-chip.Make your own little plate and drill some holes to fit two of your own LEDs.Solder together two LEDs to your connector of choice.Install your new plate together with the LEDs.Done! What do you think? I dont have any hardware right now for this case but I will keep working on it. With kind regards Johan Nyman Minimalistic PC's
