    "BATTLEFIELD 3" PC Case Mod

    Here is the "BF3" theme case mod in anticipation of Battlefield 3: BF3 release on 10.25.2011 by Electronic Arts. Fractal Design's Arc Mid tower case was chosen for the project and this PC will be displayed at Fractal's booth, on the main floor of 2012 CES, in Las Vegas

    Investigative review of Fractal Design new "Arc" Midi Tower Case.




    some of the pc case modding products we may be using for this project



    Fighter Pilot Toggle Switches, http://www.mnpctech.com/spdprtToggle.html



    To re-assemble the Corsair 900D chassis, I used these Black Powder coated PC chassis pop rivets

    Pop Rivet Gun

    Creating the riveted exterior

    Black PC Sleeving Kit

    Fractal design Arc Mid tower fully dismantled for custom paint.



    The name badge in the bezel was filled with Evercoat's Everglass" Fiberglass "short hair" filler.



    After sanding the filler with Medium Grit sandpaper..



    Scuffing surface of steel chassis parts, plastic bezel with Red Scothbrite Pad, to create paint adhesion for the Primer.




    Dissected and Magnified each segment from camouflage pattern on 8.5" x 11" paper. Each segment was traced and cut in cardboard for individual stencils.



    RUSTOLEUM Specialty series "camouflage" paints. I purchased these from Home Depot



    Camouflage paint job is finished.

    The FD front grill is very mush like Mnpctech's Modders Mesh, http://www.mnpctech.com/ModdersMesh.thm.jpg



    I'll be installing 120mm Logysis Green LED cooling fans, http://www.mnpctech.com/LED_Computer_Fan.html






    Camouflaged motherboard tray? Yes, the entire interior was painted.



    For a rugged military look, we chose these recessed PC case handles, http://www.mnpctech.com/BlackRecessedHandle.html



    The recessed PC handles are ready for installation and spring loaded, so they don't flop while transporting your PC.



    Using stencil included with handles along with measuring square to determine exact location for the recessed PC handles



    Using 1.5" Dremel reinforced cutting wheel to cut opening for recessed PC handles




    Using 1/4" drill bit for mounting holes of the recessed handles.



    Cutting 3/16" thick aluminum Diamond Plate to use as accent plates for the handles.



    Khaki base coat applied to the Diamond Plate accent plates.



    Recessed PC handles and diamond plate installed and painted.




    Airbrushed effect of side panel being peeled back by <a Mnpctech custom painter, Brad Galvin.



    Brad's weapon of choice, Iwata's HP-CH airbrush gun.



    Glowing effect airbrushed on the BF3 Marine.



    Black outline airbrushed on BF3 Marine. A flat clear will be applied over the finished mural.



    with Brad's guidance, I airbrushed the bullet holes and scratched paint effects on the access panel. I started with the easy task of filling the BF3 stencil on the left side panel.

    Wow that is awesome. I so wanted to build my BF3 rig with a military theme, but I'm no painter and I could not find anything even remotely resembling a militaristic looking case on the market. That was the final deciding factor that m,ade me change my plans and switch from a sabertooth to a CHV. I love those handles, they look like ammo box handles.

    MM, Your top shelf Mods never cease to amaze and inspire me. ThankYou.

    Brian, yes....SaberTooth is the perfect board for that, in my humble opinion also.
    Or that new Rampage that you and Raja were talking about...
    What were the specifics of that again?
    Could you re-post those close up pics again?
    hahahahhaa(Hey, I had to give it a shot brother.hehehe)

    The SaberTooth would be really perfect.
