Hi Everyone!

I 'm a newby on this forum, but once must be the first time isn't? First of all things, i want to introduce myself.

I'm Daan, 16 years old, and this is my first casemod from scratch project! i started working with computers when i was 14 ore something, and now i am addicted!

So, This is a casemod from scratch. I want to build a whole working PC in a Ikea PS case:

I don't know how I came on this idea, I was watching at it, and thinking, my pc must fit. haha. So, after a while i really started with this project. First some sketches:

So, this is the result of the case after the first cutting!

But then i discovered a problem. The cutter did it wrong. the holes where not at the right position.

Because the cutting problem, i have bought a new case, and the plate where cutted over. This is a picture of the new panel in de case

After that was done, i started with a example of the logo. I made this on wood first.

Hi!

Long time no update! There is happened a lot in this time, so this is a major update with mutch pictures and less text. The case has been painted, the hardware is in, and the first price is a fact. I won a water-cooling set from XSPC (The H2O Dual 750) So, that is coming into the black box to.

Here are some pic's:

A new control panel

Another fine use for an Ikea storage cabinet but is this the smallest they have? The components look like they are swimming in an ocean of empty space, but I am sure you can put to good use in the future. There will be no doubt that the "case" will have enough space for future expansion. Congratz on a fine project, kidding aside.

Cheers and Saludos
