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.
While at CES this year we had the oppurtunity to talk to Bill Owen who is widely known around the PC modding community and owns MNPCTECH. Fractal Design invited him to their booth to show off his Arc Midi Battlefield 3 mod. It was great being able to talk to Bill about the case and about MNPCTECH. Read on to check out the interview.

El Monte, CA – September 15, 2010 – NZXT, a company built on realizing the dreams of gamers worldwide, is proud to unveil a fresh approach to case lighting with the Sleeved LED Kit. Traditional lighting methods involve cold cathodes and even solid LED boards that take up additional case space. NZXT’s unique design pairs sleeved wires with a high density of LED’s, enabling enthusiasts to snake the lights between side panels and under components with ease. The end result is a beautiful glow throughout the case with a clean installation that doesn’t detract from the internal aesthetics. Users can adjust the light brightness to low, medium, and high levels with red, green, blue, white, or orange kits.
So you’re building a new computer and you want to wire your case to look nice on the inside. NZXT has come out with some single braided cables for all your power needs and nice looks for your case. The single braided cables have started to become mainstream after a few modders started to make their own and sell them. So NZXT decided to make their own cable and bring them to the mainstream. As we all know NZXT has been making some great high end products. I am for one happy to see how these will work out, being an avid modder and custom case builder. With many of these cables to review let’s see what these cables are all about.
