Hi, my name is Mickee  from Makati City, Philippines. This is my first full on case mod and work log. I would like to thank you in advanced for spending time on this.

 

I will be using an old Cooler Master USP100 handed down to me by a good friend. 

There is no specs for the PC yet as I am still looking around for good deals.

 

At the end of this project we will be looking at a Military Themed BTX form factor chassis, top mounted GPU connected via PCIe riser and DIY computer peripherals there are still more modifications that I am unable to explain as of the moment so I will just update this work log with pictures as the fun progresses.

Sorry Everything is dusty because our house is under construction.

I will put the power supply and radiator in this new compartment.

The bottom part of the chassis will be replaced with a flat aluminum sheet so I dremeled out the bumpy area, the cut does not need to be perfect because it will be covered anyway.

So I need something thick for the panels of the bottom compartment smile.png It is broken and was thrown away by the owner.

Cutting the panels to fit I am doing it way off the line as I do not trust my unstable hands.

Here are a few updates : :)

 

I do not know how to dismantle the fish tank properly, I tried a heat gun hoping to make its adhesive soft but that did not work so I just decided to randomly saw off the panels.

Test fitted the Front panel/ Face plate, I changed the appearance of the GPU shroud and loosen the screws at the back end so It can be opened I will be placing the proper hinges for it in time tongue.png

This is the final mounting formation for the GPU, many thanks to LiHeat for the 380mm PCI-E 3.0 Riser I tried Battlefield 4 on the test bench and it was amazing, it's like the GPU is connected directly to the motherboard.
