Hi! It's been a long moment since I've built a case and had a project log.:dremel: Where have I been and what I have I been doing? To those of you that don't know me who am I? My modding "career" started a long time ago in the year 2000. Back than I didn't have a camera so my early cases, which, were mere tower mods with windows and autobody paint body and some lights. It wasn't until 2007 and my Triphane build that I started to show my ability. I hit my stride in 2009/10 with my first scratch build Aelro Dynamic, all aluminium, which, was folllowed by SSR-X, all carbon fiber build. After SSR-X, I founded and tried to jumpstart a wearable technology company, which, failed!:wallbash::clap: It was one :) of a learning experience! SSR-X was created with Google Sketchup, but my wearable technology demanded that I learn SolidWorks. Gained some really valuable knowledge in the art of design and assembly. Pictures below! I'm sitting around and the Cooler Master World Series competition pops up on the radar. I'm eyeballs deep in projects already but in the past 6 months I was designing case in my spare time. With the competition and my aging hardware, I finally decided it was time for a new case, Proxima C. Proxima C will be my first fully acrylic case.:rock: It somewhat of tribute case to the discovery of Promixa B in the Alpha Centauri System, within, the last year! I wanted to make a case that didn't look of this world. Material is on order! As always Until Than, Keep Modding:dremel:
Introduction: Hi Guys, First of all, I'm Andrew Lee Adanza. I've been a pc enthusiast for just about a 2 years or so. Building a gaming rig was only my goal at that time. But as time/months passed by, my love for PC grew. That is the time when i was hooked up to modding. Right now, i'm in a foreign land and it is hard for me to grab all tools and materials to do modding since im still not familiar in this country. Anyways, I will stop this nonsense and proceed with my build log. I've already seen and followed some epic system builds and project logs creating a case using acrylic. some of these are wallmounted pc's like LORAMENTUM and some build using PARVUM like Darthbeavis, l3p, kier etc. This guys inspire me. so now, I will be creating a case with the idea of a case made of acrylic like PARVUM but with inline loops(coolant will pass in the case itself, like LORAMENTUM). If my work comes out half as good as other "masterpiece". It would be a great achievement for me. All cuts are done using a scrollsaw and by hand. hoping to have my own laser cutter to ease the work. I would also like to take this chance to say thanks to all of the sponsors. Thanks BITFENIX for sponsoring this build. Special thanks to BitFenix Malaysia and Clement for all the help. Thanks CORSAIR for sponsoring this build. Special thanks to Corsair Malaysia, Emily and Anson for all the help. Thank you guys. I would also like to give thanks to Intel and Intel Malaysia for helping me on this build. Thanks a lot guys. And to my wallet. hehehehehehe....
