Started off a case mod which was sitting like nothing but just the bare casing.
Thought of making something new out of it.
So far i made some prior arrangements for the job.

P.S. Looking for a definite hardware for the case as well. Not so HI-Fi but atleast something that could go along the case.

sanded off 2 layers of pre-paint and the 3rd was almost gone but kept it for coat purpose.

P.S. Should i color the inner case as well? perhaps the signature black which every other case has???????

addition activity done today was this... an EVGA 9800GT with reference clocks. was lying around thinking of buying another one and doing an SLI or may be a gtx460 SSC and then this 9800gt would serve as PhysX card. Eventually just sanded and painted off something like this and im still after giving the rough look to it rather then neat.

I built a 930 system into a customers old ALX case like this but with built in water cooling. Its a koolance system under the badge, and frankly, it worked alot better then I expected it to.

for now im going cheap so finding the best lga775 setup but cheap. looking for x38 or x48 ddr3 motherboards. still nothing found and require a quadcore like q9300 or q9400.

would be definite if these are found else wise i guess have to wait and then setup the big.

Looking good so far! Are you going to paint the interior of the case?

now with some changes started thinking to make things even better and im getting confused to apply a different paint job!!!

iv modded the upper section to create something more abstract and rather more alien feel then the regular

now as you can see iv cut off the middle and lined in shape for something(you guyz will get a good update on this one )

well further update is for the base paint done with one of the side panels (from front right one) notice that there was no factory cutting. Iv just cut it off for another idea (if not applicable) will regret it and cover it up.
