Default [Case Mod] Aero Cube

Hey enthusiastic PC builders,

I'm going to start a new casemod, this time a micro-ATX build in the Aerocool DS cube.
It has to be an HTPC that can also be used as a LAN-box, so it has to be a freaking awesome case.

Hardware : not known yet
Cooling components: Not known yet

Here are some pictures of the Aerocool DS Cube.























Playing with some LED`s.






See you soon

This week started making a midplate and some minor adjustments to the case itself

















Pre-drill the holes and then cut out with the cutter.








Mid plate fits perfectly









I made a window in both side panels, here you can see the graphics card en later the cooling en hardware.















Problem ?? Little space for power cables,s o I did a little adjustment.













Did some wrapping on the midplate with some mat black.









I got the idea of ​​making a pump with reservoir combo in the front of the case, so the round hole has already been made.
Had two more pass through fittings spare, so I used them to make an easy connection through the midplate.

Hey, another update.


This week I started with the front panel of the case.
I used the Asus Mayan pattern for the front, later on there will be a lot of RGB led`s behind this panel and case parts.













































































Used some primer, more in the next update




If you have any questions, I'd love to hear those

I got a new tool for modding, bought this airbrush starter-pack with some paint to get started.
For a first time I did a nice job I think, of course there are some points we can improve but we can work on that.






These colors I`m going to use on the case. (red madder dark, black)









First I used the color (red madder dark), then I used a airbrush and brush and added the color (black). And added a clear coating, for a first time I did a great job I think.



























The sharpness of the pictures will improve in the next update.

So I got two packages last week, one with all the hardware and one from Highflow.nl with all the cooling parts. So let`s get started with the inside.


MB: Asus ROG Strix Z270G Gaming





CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K


GPU: Asus Strix GTX1070 O8G Gaming





RAM: Avexir ROG Tesla Red 2666 MHz 16GB





PSU: Corsair RM850I


And of course ''CableMod''








For cooling I chose EKWB


EK-FC1080 GTX Strix – Nickel with a shinny Nickel Backplate











EK-Supremacy EVO – Nickel



A group photo


It`s time for some PETG bending


EK-XRES 140 DDC 3.2 PWM Elite – incl. pump








Best handy tool ever, no sharp edges anymore.
