Firstly this isn't really going to be a log like the lil star case, I just want to share the progress of my case I will be using for the foreseeable future.
So I started with a xclio a380 color case, I've had it for a few years now and after the lil star felt it was time to drastically change it. As with the lil star I decided I would chop it down, but only in depth as I wanted to keep it simple.
I plan to reshape the window and remove the door, these 2 things combined with a major reduction in depth should create a very refreshing retake on the case.
The theme for the case has been inspired by aircraft, mostly the ah-1 cobra. Paint will be a flat charcoal grey, with some accent paint of an unknown color.
Heres the starting point, really I've always loved the design. Theres just something about it.
Heres the bare chassis before anything has been done, I did paint it black when I got it but other then that it was stock.
Aluminum rivets again. Its really stupid how they have such a large fan blowing into a small hole. The amount of restriction is ridiculous. Really the fans that came with the case aren't that good, although a huge boost can be had by changing the sleeve bearing out for ball bearings.
So this took a few days to get too, but it was done quick and dirty. I'm lacking the patience I had in during the lil star mod.
So this should give you a better idea of what its going to look like. Although its far from finished its vastly different. If you look close you can see the layout for the window.
