    Talking [Case Mod] Aero Cube

    Hey enthusiastic PC builders,

    I'm going to start a new casemod, this time a micro-ATX build in the Aerocool DS cube.
    It has to be an HTPC that can also be used as a LAN-box, so it has to be a freaking awesome case.

    Hardware : not known yet
    Cooling components: Not known yet

    Here are some pictures of the Aerocool DS Cube.























    Playing with some LED`s.






    See you soon

    This week started making a midplate and some minor adjustments to the case itself :

















    Pre-drill the holes and then cut out with the cutter.








    Mid plate fits perfectly :









    I made a window in both side panels, here you can see the graphics card en later the cooling en hardware.















    Problem ?? Little space for power cables,s o I did a little adjustment.













    Did some wrapping on the midplate with some mat black.

    I got the idea of ​​making a pump with reservoir combo in the front of the case, so the round hole has already been made.
    Had two more pass through fittings spare, so I used them to make an easy connection through the midplate.

    Hey, another update.


    This week I started with the front panel of the case.
    I used the Asus Mayan pattern for the front, later on there will be a lot of RGB led`s behind this panel and case parts.













































































    Used some primer, more in the next update




    If you have any questions, I'd love to hear those

    I love your build! Youre the first and only one that comes close to the build i am going to make! I just have one question. Where did you find that mayan pattern? I cant find anything on the web. I am going to make the same front panel but my rog logo is going to be illumitated with rgb leds.

    I'm impressed by your patience. I probably would have sent it out for laser/water cutting or something.

    I got a new tool for modding, bought this airbrush starter-pack with some paint to get started.
    For a first time I did a nice job I think, of course there are some points we can improve but we can work on that.






    These colors I`m going to use on the case. (red madder dark, black)









    First I used the color (red madder dark), then I used a airbrush and brush and added the color (black). And added a clear coating, for a first time I did a great job I think.



























    The sharpness of the pictures will improve in the next update.
