Hi all! This is a mod which is special to me as it represents the sheer awe of war, both the good and bad, this is a theme that I have tried to implement within my mod. Enjoy!

 

This is how I got the ammo box (Yes this is a real wooden ammo box from the 1980's!)

With this mod, I wanted it to be portable for all of the great LAN events, or to have epic gaming nights at home:

I then made a template for the motherboard, and proceeded to mount the board onto the plate:

One can see that there is a very fine gap between the board and the side panel:

I mounted the buttons which I will use as the power and reset switches, and yes... They will glow yellow...

On the back of the motherboard plate, I have cut a hole into the casing and then inserted mesh, which will act as an exhaust:

Another angle of the intake fans:

Power supply, Cooler Master 650W, has been modded to have a yellow fan to match with the theme:

A 20mm bullet from a machine gun on a helicopter, just the shell of course, but will be inserted inside of the chassis to add effect:

Take a look at the clearance within the chassis of the hard drive, relative to the power supply and case fans:

How the :) did you get that ammo box!? I want one! Please!? Will be keeping a close watch on this! Update! Update! Update!  :D

 

Thanks man!  :D  I found the ammo box in South Africa, where I am based, and I got it from a Food Lovers market, where they have many various types of foods for sale and I knew that this needs to be a computer when I saw it  :D

I took the Cooler Master logo off of another cooler master chassis, then added it onto the power supply:

Haha! That's awesome! I have been seeing A LOT of military themed case mods, but this one got my attention. I have a suggestion. Use dead land mines for the feet! XD

 

Looking forward for the finished build! And by the way, I just noticed, we have a common don't we? :P
