[MSI PRO MOD – S4] Fusebox
« on: 03-June-16, 13:55:09 »






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


Painted the Case Black and some weathered details.


ID Cooling Fans



I will be back for more updates :)

Update time 

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



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



and this is what i came up with.





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



I have added more weathering details too.











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 :)

Update time 

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..



Those are all for now Thanks :)

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




Thanks for watching :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.



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



Ta daaa



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





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



Of course weather it :D



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

Cheers!
