APASF was born out an idea of mixing the well established Steampunk design with the post-apocalyptic style. The idea has been in my head for the last 5-6 years but I wanted to wait until I developed my paint effect skills to a point where I knew I could replicate to perfection the idea I had in my head. The secondary concept factor was to give it a “modular” look like the Thermaltake BMW case had (the original limited stupidly expensive one, not the current one) so that´s why I used a slim HTPC as a base so I could have parts literally coming popping out of the case.
Welcome to another Case Mod Friday case showcase! This week we have Wayne Butler’s custom military case. A 1962 U.K. Army dedicated tribute build to my late father Sargent P.R. Butler. Built inside of a Corsair Vengeance C70. The case has a full military theme along with the rest of my setup.
This case was build from scratch by hand, it’s one heartshaped case to fit the ZBOX nano XS AD11 that ZOTAC kindly sponsor to us. Design idea was simple, do it “Valentine and cute” for women. It feature one multi layer case style (12 layers) of white acrylic and red accents. The video worklog are 7 videos full EN, called Letters, that you can see at our YouTube page. This project was build to give mine girlfriend as a V-day gift and now is with WIN 8 and XBMC, as her daily PC.
Tribute to the 101st Screaming Eagles brigades auction custom MOD/Build to benefit disabled vets through PCs4VETS charity. Inspiration for this creation is VALOR in battle honoring the courage, merit and gallantry of our soldiers. The primary scheme is the Medal Of Honor. The GOLD and the Blue will be seen throughout but Bronze and Silver Stars will also be represented. Built on a Cooler Master Cosmos II case, with a ton of custom mods and additions.
At first I started only to design the side panel. Because the original side panel was lost by the courier or claimed so after I sent it for custom window. But then more and more ideas came in, even though this is my first time modding, I said to myself just to give it a try. Monochromos means single color, which is why I used black and white. Because black is one color while white is sometime known as not ‘a’ color because it is the result of combination of all the rainbow colors.
For this mod I used a Silverstone TJ11. To many, this is the most coveted full tower water cooling case to own and mod. I decided to do a Steampunk mod because there are not very many out there. Not saying I could out do any of them, I just thought it would be a really fun thing to try. Most of my ideas came from looking at photos online of clothing, jewelry and just old Steampunk style photos. I also did not play very much of this mod. I just played it by ear as I went. Overall I am very pleased with how it came out and I fully plan on doing another one in the future.
