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.

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.

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.

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)

http://dkmodding.nl/files/PCBUILDS/AeroCube/Buildlog/63(550).jpg

 

 

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.
