First batch of parts.



Some more parts.



And what might this be?



One of the feet for the case. With one of the rads on the bottom I need to give the case a lift for air flow.

This case has alot of headroom for modding. I've seen some reaaly nice mods and some REAL bad ones as well.

Haven't posted any progress in a while. Partly due to I've been swamped with work.

Some of you wanted to know what I was going to do with 20mm fans. Well here you go. With 5 fans on the rads bringing air into the case I needed to add some more exhaust fans to even things out.

Nice work so far! Looking forward to more updates.

This has given me a great idea for watercooling in this case.

What did you use to mount those pumps? What did you cut the top for the radgrill with?

Thanks guys....

I used a Dremel for radgrill cut outs. The mount for the pumps come with the EK pump tops. I Just bolted them together.

This is far from finished. I'm still making some cuts to the case.

I will post more pics in a day or so.

Very nice so far! Subscribed for sure. I've done some less elaborite simple mods on mine, and it's been a fun case to work with. Lots of room, and good cooling with minimal effort and money.

Looks awesome so far. I have this Rocketfish case still NIB in my closet, waiting for some mods. This might be the perfect blueprint. Congrats.

Since I've been busy in life I work on what I can. A couple weeks ago I started to paint what I could. So here is a sneek peek. I have some other parts painted but here you can see what is to come.

I decided only to paint the bare/silver aluminum and to not paint the brushed black finish on the case already. So here is the door.

Let me know what you think so far.

Thanks











I really need to improve my photo taking skills.

Thanks.

I hope I can show what can really be done with this case. I have seen some nice mods but wanted to go little beyond.

Rocketfish is a Best Buy house brand, so this case was only sold their and has since gone out of stock. Their are Lian Li cases that are very close though.

As promised... some updated pics.

Here are those case feet in action now.



What do you think. I think they turned out pretty good.

Some more of the chasis.

Been getting busy.

Here are some recent pics. Just have to do some final sleeving and then get this running.

What do you think so far?

Gorgeous. I wish I had those kind of painting abilities.

How far from the back did you mount you radiator grill?

Are both rads pulling? Did you make those feet yourself?

Sorry for all of the questions, but your work is really good.
