Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have MetallicAcid’s “Origami” build. Here is what they had to say about it, “Hello everybody, and welcome to yet another of my modded projects! I would like to introduce you to my project named “Origami” which features the exclusive In Win S-Frame chassis. The name Origami is inspired by the way this single 2m long, 4mm thick aluminium plate has been folded 15 times to give this unique chassis it’s form. There is no floor or roof, and tempered glass panels which really set this chassis aside from most all other PC enclosures on the market today. I felt that I would take on the challenge of modding this chassis to enhance its design in typical MetallicAcid style, complete with brushed aluminium panels, and a full custom water cooled loop with hardline tubing.”

We’ve been fans of WD’s My Passport portable hard drives for years. These drives are a great companion for your Ultrabook where hard drive space is limited and are extremely reliable as well. WD’s latest iteration of the drive is the My Passport Ultra, which is a USB 3.0 portable hard drive. They were nice enough to send us over their Metal Edition, which has a very sexy Aluminum design. Not only is this going to look great, but it will add extra protection to the drive as well. The drive features a very fast USB 3.0 connection so your transfers will take no time at all. The drive comes with the WD SmartWare Pro backup software so you can setup and schedule local as well as cloud backups with no problem at all. Let’s take a look at the My Passport Ultra Metal Edition and see what it can do!

It is much easier to chat or write an e-mail using a real keyboard and not an on-screen one. Mad Catz has come up with the S.T.R.I.K.E. M which is a small compact wireless keyboard that has many gaming features as well as multimedia and productivity features anyone would appreciate. Let’s see what this keyboard can do!
