[Gundam Case Mod] Unicorn Destroy Mod Project

Hi guys! I'm Alessandro aka SaaintJimmy or St.Jimmy. I'm an italian modder and this is my first worklog on this forum. I'm going to realize a mod inspired by the design of the Unicorn Gundam Destroy Mode. The base is an NZXT Noctis 450 but in the end it won't be recognizible at all

Special thanks go to my sponsors, Aquatuning and Enermax!

So, let's start with the worklog pictures!
First of all, some shots of the case as it comes out of the box.





First of all, I removed the feet of the case because it's going to be rotated 90 degrees!


Then I mounted them on the side that is usually the front of the case... here's how I managed to secure them...


Every cover inside the case is going to be replaced by custom-made parts, so I had to remove everything


And this is a placement test of the 360mm radiator. I will be using Apollish Red Fans from Enermax and the radiator will be covered by some plexiglass... this still is 0,001% done, obviously!


This is all for now... I'm still waiting for the lab to be done so I can start cutting and doing all that stuff: I'm stuck in the bedroom at the moment and I barely have the space to move! :duh:
Stay tuned if you wanna see more amazing stuff!

I can't wait to see more of this. It is rare for the mere theme of a case mod to get me this excited. perhaps the perfect case to start a Gundam Case mod.

Hi guys! Sorry for the delay but I've been pretty busy in the last two days so I had no time to post updates. Here is what I've done until now!

First of all, I wanna thank Enermax who provided me this amazing T.B. Apollish and Platimax 750W!





But I obviously wanted to modify the fans somehow



Do you like them white?



The scroll saw arrived so I started to cut the first panels...



This could look weird since as you can see it's going to be the mounting of the 360 radiator on it but you also can see that the panel is much larger than the rad... how do you think this is gonna be mounted?



That's it for today. In the next update you'll see the material from Aquatuning and some update of the radiator cover and other panels... stay tuned

Hi guys! Sorry for the delay but I had no time this weekend to update the worklogs... but here I am now! Let's start with the pics

Drawing Gundam eyes and other details to allow the air to flow properly!



Cutting time...



Effect with fans on!



Drawing the other side of the panel... Gundam shoulder!



Cutting time pt.2



Some other cuts for air flow!



And it's finally done! Some cuts for cable management and stuff like that are still missing, and painting too but I will do those things after some other ones!





This is the second package I got from Aquatuning. All the other stuff are gonna be showed soon! Again thanks to Aquatuning!




I hope you guys enjoy it!
See you at the next update!

This looks like it is shaping up to be my perfect PC. Love the stack airflow concepts.
