Hello All,

 

I plan to use Coolermaster Stacker 830 for this project.

 

Little background, just moved into my first house and now have my own man cave only problem is its a little small, So the plan is to shrink the size of the Stacker down to mini itx.

Done this before on few others cases but on easier cases with less parts.

 

For now just a pic.

Was going to have a gunmetal grey colour on the outside of the case but went for a silver more like it was originally, very happy with how it came out
