Default [Case Mod] Aero Cube - 06-19-2017, 20:59 | posts: 17

Hey enthusiastic PC builders,

I'm going to start a new casemod, this time a micro-ATX build in the Aerocool DS cube.
It has to be an HTPC that can also be used as a LAN-box, so it has to be a freaking awesome case.

Hardware : not known yet
Cooling components: Not known yet

Here are some pictures of the Aerocool DS Cube.























Playing with some LED`s.






See you soon

This week started making a midplate and some minor adjustments to the case itself :

















Pre-drill the holes and then cut out with the cutter.








Mid plate fits perfectly :

I made a window in both side panels, here you can see the graphics card en later the cooling en hardware.















Problem ?? Little space for power cables,s o I did a little adjustment.













Did some wrapping on the midplate with some mat black.

I got the idea of making a pump with reservoir combo in the front of the case, so the round hole has already been made.
Had two more pass through fittings spare, so I used them to make an easy connection through the midplate.

Hey, another update.


This week I started with the front panel of the case.
I used the Asus Mayan pattern for the front, later on there will be a lot of RGB led`s behind this panel and case parts.
