DeepCool is a name we normally associate with cooling products, but recently they have introduced a few cases. At CES 2014 DeepCool introduced a Steampunk-themed micro ATX / mini ITX case called the Steam Castle.
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.
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.
