Hello everyone.

  My name is Alberto and I'm from Portugal, its my second year at Case Mod World Series and I'm really motivated about it, I have learned so much last contest and I'm confident this year, good luck!

  First a little about my self and my history, I have been modding since the past 4 years in three different projects, and all three projects I evolve so much in all strands, facing a lot off problems some more hard than others but in the end I have solve all off them and that gave me a lot off knowledge. I always try to do the best with the tools I have.

   You can check my past projects in this links:

Day 1

 


   This worklog will be divided in days/parts, as the project progresses I will post when I got solid news to show you!
   Now lets talk about this new projec that have "born" because of "a need".
   My past project was really good for me, many problems solve and in the end I got more than I first expected, speaking only about the design, because in the pratical way I failled in some aspects, and I got that confirmation when I received a new motheboard from RMA that was bigger than my last problem showing a compatibility issue!
   The motherboard feeted but I didnt look cool as the old one, so I became really disapointed and decided to put the two possibilitys in mind, buy one or build one, of course building one was the first choice!


  At this point the Project will have a unnamed name, and the build will be based in this four concepts:

- Simple
- Pratical
- Color
- Funcional

  
   I have been doing the project in 3D SketchUp and i can tell you is really hard to make a compact case with ATX motheboards and at the same time it must be easy to set up components and to carry on for any place I want, and at the same time get low temperatures and air flow.
   So I started to study the best positions to make a solid and funcional structure and i ended up with this:

   When I finished the struture it was time to start making the outside of the case. Like my last project I wanted an acrilyc window to see the interior of the case, one thing that I love is to watch all my parts working!.
  All colors are just an example.
 
Now lets see the result:

Hope you guys like it and see you in the next day!

Hope you like it.

I got some really good news about the project, the light in the end of the tunel is getting realy closer! :toothy8:

After thinking alot about the colors to paint the case I decided to use the following colors:

-Black
-White

-Blue

With the colors choosed I started to isolate what I wanted in white color, the blue color will be used in vinyl, I didnt decide what kinda graphics will use.
I've donne the covers holes for the fans to.
