Hi my name is Mickee from the Philippines, Welcome to the worklog of my entry to the Fourth season of MSI PRO MODS. I call this one "Fusebox"

Thank you :)









Here is a case from a local player here in the Philippines, Tecware Alpha ATX Chassis.

Disassembly

Worked on the front the panel ~ removed the honeycombed grill behind the wire mesh and made some acrylic panels from plexi glass.

Side panels to Silver

Update time 

So i decided not to use the sidepanels that came with the case, built a new one using 3mm thick plexiglass.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/x4nij9.jpg)

These things will be used to mount the new panel specifically at the back side of the case.

(http://i67.tinypic.com/316sxhu.jpg)

and this is what i came up with.

(http://i63.tinypic.com/14cr9fs.jpg)

The purpose of the sliding panel is so that I can still manage the cables from the back of the case with ease. 

(http://i63.tinypic.com/201swk.jpg)

I have added more weathering details too.

(http://i64.tinypic.com/2w2eedt.jpg)

(http://i64.tinypic.com/vzk4k9.jpg)

Panel for the front side also made out of 3mm plexiglass and cut with a dremel motosaw.

This one is for the biult in PSU Shroud.

Those are all for now, until next time thanks :)

I added more details to the side panel on the back end.

MSI Gaming Dragon and MadMods PC Modding Decal.

I felt that the space next to the dragon was a bit empty.

So again I grabbed the rattle can, tissue, paint brush and sand paper :)

Closer look at the MSI Gaming Dragon Logo

Oh this shot doesn't have the additional scratches next to the dragon..

A little update, I'm kinda' way pass this stage but I have nothing to do as of the moment regarding this mod because I have finished about 95% of the work. So while waiting for the other essential PC parts to arrive I checked the videos that I took while working on this project and found that I did make a quick unboxing :) so here it is sorry about the quality as I am still learning how to do this :D

Update time :D just a few though and there is one week left before deadline...

This is the front I/O ports, it is normally lays flat on top of the case.

(http://i65.tinypic.com/hx12lh.jpg)

It is cable management time, Sorry about the poor quality of the pictures :(

(http://i68.tinypic.com/177clh.jpg)

Ta daaa

(http://i66.tinypic.com/2ln8r61.jpg)

But wait I want to give it a little old school sci-fi effect so :D

(http://i66.tinypic.com/17tw7b.jpg)

(http://i63.tinypic.com/20j2wso.jpg)

Sprayed it with Medium Grey, the orange parts between the gaps are still visible so I need to use a small brush for that.

(http://i66.tinypic.com/wrjssp.jpg)

Of course weather it :D

(http://i63.tinypic.com/34pf2qg.jpg)

And those are all for now, the next update will be massive :)
