This is my new “Main” project, after two small projects, one for a client and the other one being the tutorial project, this being the first main project since Fallout Cause SP back in December 2011.
I´ve had this idea in my head for years now, and you could say all of my projects in the last year and a half have simply been “tests” for techniques, both paint and structural modification in order to get ready for this one.
The concept is as far as I know something that has never been done before. Mixing the post-apocalyptic style with the steampunk style in a small slimline case (the same model in fact as I used for the fallout cause sp project). The reason for this is that it gives me a compact canvas to concentrate details and because the parts do not fit, they give me a modular look that I´ve always liked since I saw the original thermaltake Level 10 case (the first one, not the redesigned GT version).
This project is being sponsored by:
Some are new and some have been with me since the begining, either way I´d like to thank all of them for their support and amazing products!
I don´t normally list the hardware I will be using on my projects, but for the first time, this project will actually become my main PC so here are the basic details.
ASUS Maximus IV Gene-Z/GEN3
Intel i7 2700K
Kingston HyperX 16Gb DDR3 1866Mhz
2x Kingston HyperX SSD 240Gb in RAID
2x MSI GeForce GTX 560 Ti TwinFreeze OC 2Gb in SLI
B-Move Slim II Case
As for the rest of componentes, cooling and accesories, you´ll see them as they get mounted.
Let´s start then.
I´ve started with the structural modifications I need done on the case, the B-Move Slim II. I really like this case, it´s small, simple yet stylsh.
I´ve taken it all apart, I won´t be using any of the frontal conectors (except frontal USB & Audio) nor buttons or led.
For the design I have in mind to work, I need to cut the cover in parts, fit the upper and lower parts permanently to the case so the door is just the side, so here goes.
