This is my entry to Cooler Master Mod Competition 2013.

It is mITX wooden HTPC named Arya. It is still WIP, but I would like to show what I have been done.

Here are rendered images of Arya.

I drilled holes for MBO standoffs. This time I didn't used dremel-instead of that I drilled manually.

Then I started to mod MBO-I covered it with carbon foil and modded the CPU fan.

I bought mini PSu to test if I could fit it in side panel because it was cheaper then power brick and pico PSU. You can see that I decided to preserve warranty. :D

No seal broken. XD

I replaced HDD sticker with carbon foil that I cut to the same shape as original sticker.

There was more progress on other hardware-RAM was covered with leather and MBO I/O shield is covered with carbon foil inside and leather outside. I also made leather USB stick to be used with Arya. :)

After putting all hardware inside, Arya looked like this:

Not very pretty and has a lot of wires. But it was changed-I unsoldered all unneeded cables and shorened the main 24 pin cable. Metal mesh was intaled in PSU section and all fitted nicely.

No more wire mess there. I also swap the stock loud 80 mm fan with small laptop turbine fan.
