COD MOW3 Think inside the box


Recommended Posts

Hey peoples,

 

This is my work log.

 

I'm not giving too much away the case mod is based on Call of duty modern warfare 3.

 

My goal is to house a kick butt pc in a small case.

 

The case:

 

Fractal Design Array 2.

The first mods:

I had to remove the drive bay for the hard drives to allow more room for larger parts.

I had to cut sections out of the front 140mm fan support tray to use it for a solid state drive tray.

 

Second i needed to do was to show off case parts:

 

Also need decent airflow for a longer power hungry graphics card.

 

Lets hack up the case now :laughing:

You will be able to see hardware and how much space will be used up.

Hey guys i solved my issues with the power supply mount and cooler lets take a look at the new mods done so far.

Now i found a Lian Li power supply mount in Australia which was awesome.

Now i had to drill 2 mounting holes for the power supply mount to fit to the case.

I tested fitted the mount before i started cutting the back of the case to make sure i had the right clearance for the bracket and power supply.

Started my first cut at the back of the case.

Now i have modded the back for a full size Atx power supply.

Hey guys i then needed to cut out a top window for the case reason for doing this is to see more of the case and also i wanted to do some etching work.

I used a tape roll to mark my corners and im using a dremel with jigsaw for the rest.

Now i need to just a little more file it back and then i should be right i also always check the back of the panel to see if it look straight etc.
