Project Line - 2011 Case Mod Competition Entry

Recommended Posts

Gusts    3

Hello this is my first project in the forum and a Cooler Master Competition. I hope you like and enjoy the project's progress.

Objectives:

I'm trying to make a mod simplified (old school style) through the use of color, light and simple cuts.

Some things are already pre-defined, as the name Line, aiming the use of striking lines in the project.

I intend to keep the colors on the outside black, but leaving it more matte to make it more like the plastic parts (top and front) as the original case. The inside painting is a blue metallic paint also the parts that are chrome (power and reset buttons and lines on the front and top).

Let's go to see some photos of the CM690 :twisted: :

A comparison with my chassis temporary :shock: :

Lets go to preview the side and fan grills!

My first idea to cut the side was this:

Oh my Gusts, your video is almost XXX, haha. Very edgy to say the least. Let's see what you do with the 2 cases, too early to appreciate.

Best of Luck!

Cheers and Saludos

Hello guys, it's time to give a color to the case. :D

I chose this colors:

Toyota SpeedWay Blue...

5-Pintura4.jpg

and Vinilic Matt Black...

5-Pintura5.jpg

I prefer Vinilic Matt Black because is very same with the plastic parts in the front and the top.

The sides:

5-Pintura6.jpg5-Pintura7.jpg

Fan grills (missing rear fan grill) and the clips ( originally blues :( ):

5-Pintura9.jpg5-Pintura10.jpg

Go to blue! :P

Lines on the top and front plus the buttons:

5-Pintura11.jpg5-Pintura13.jpg

Every parts on the bed for reassembly:

6-Remontagem4.jpg

and... :love10::love10::love10:

6-Remontagem12.jpg6-Remontagem14.jpg

This blue line in the side was a mistake, but the result was very beautiful and according the theme.

Now is time to organize everything, the hardware and do the lighting. No much longer to vote, so go go go!

Best Regards, Gusts.
