Case Mod Friday: The Dual

Project Name: The Dual

Tell us a little about your case / case mod?
The Dual was just an idea from a lan party with my first build in the Elysium case, and a comment of ‘ the case is so big you could fit TWO computers in side.’. Well that got me thinking and well a lot of measuring and modding, on the inside, I want to keep the outsode looking the same, and you can see the end result. As for the rads, well I needed to go external with the water and when i saw these rads i just had to have a pair of them to make sure it was The Dual.
