Welcome to another Case Mod Friday showcase! This week we have James Walter’s “Parvum Warfare” build. Here is what he had to say about it, “Here we go yet again! Here’s my first of two builds this fall, another team up with Parvum Systems, this time for a highly customized Advanced Warfare themed mITX build. Originally I was set for a totally different theme but then last week at Gamescom Microsoft showed off their limited Advanced Warfare controller and console. I then switched themes and have decided to tread familiar ground in doing a build inspired by another Xbox One controller. I just couldn’t help myself. I’m pretty inspired by the controllers color pallet, it’s very unique and I think this build will turn out completely amazing with the plans I have.”
