Happy Holidays,

My oringinal Idea for the case mod, was to re mod this NZXT Vulcan micro-atz case all i was going to do was Batman etching on the window for my 7 year old son, Just a little weekend project, the ultimate goal was to make a nice little Lan case ,but when i started getting a few more ideas came to mind .

I very thankful for Biostar, Intel and NZXT . With out there support these are just visions on paper. I showed my friend at Boistar the progress of teh case and he ask to showcase it in Vegas for CES.



Image

Image

Image

I started working on the side panel first to replace it with plexi.

Image

Image

making the window opening bigger with a dremal tool

Image

Image

all is left is to is a few places to File.

Next up to see how it look on the case

Image

removing the rivots and the disassemblyhas begun

Image

Decided to change the front panel a bit and add a little Batman touch to it.

Image

Fan Cut out
Image


I will be re-using the orginal mesh from the side panel for the front
Image
Image


I had some left over anodized aluminium from my other super secret project

Image
With a scroll Saw and a file you can do amaizing things

Image

all thats is left is have the Rez cut out and add power button and a little polishing
Image

Alot more too do
Image
Image


Thank you again for checking the project out.

Are you going to leave it with the metallic silver colour? If you do, that you be pretty nice (I like it a lot). Really stands out from all the black cases you see these days. :)
