is proud to bring you Project: BigBlue. This is the first of
what we hope to be many articles featuring modded cases. In
this article Holley, the cases' creator, will share his secrets
that were used in the making of the case. From stock to masterpiece,
you'll know exactly how it was done. OCHardware would like to
send a special thanks to Holley
from Ottawa for writing everything below this and showing us
how he made this awesome case. Here we go...
Before the creation
of Big Blue, came the vision of something greater. I
was looking at creating a seamless looking case. With the addition
of stealthing all the wires, hereís how I did it.
This is what I had to start with: a big case with lots of wiring.
It was hard to determine how I was going to hide all the wires.
achieve a total seamless case, I had to completely strip it to
the frame as well as remove the hard drive cage.
the ventilation was not that good to begin with between the bottom
and top, I cut away a larger opening for better air flow. At this
point, the case was becoming very weak, so it has been reinforced
using 3/8ís Stainless Steel rods.
