Even in the dark, it still feels very different compared to before.
That's Brown & Cony still fresh in the box
It was an all black build before, a very generic and boring build IMO
See the mess down there? That is what I have to look at everyday
Another picture showing the hideous cables underneath it
In the beginning, I thought to cut a section of the PSU shroud to make the PSU itself visible. But just before cutting, I scrapped the idea because it could potentially ruin the aesthetic
This is the top of the PSU shroud, and the only was cables can go to the bottom of the mobo is through that tiny hole. I also decided to cut open a hole for PCIE cables to pass through so as to ease cable management mess on the backside of the case.
This is the result after cutting the case and sanding the whole case in preparation for painting
This is the initial result after spraying it on its 3rd layer. As far as I see it, it has already look quite different and beautiful in itself.
This is how the case would look like without any of the stickers and hardwares.
The first time I booted it up. Haven't even set up the ARGB yet for the ML360R.
How it looks looking at it from the front
A bit of side profile
Brown & Cony - We're in Love
This is a build based on the 2 main characters of LINE messaging app; Brown (the bear) and Cony (the rabbit) that are madly in love with each other.
The reason I chose this as a theme is because me and my partner has been using this app since 2013 (if I remember correctly) and we just got engaged last Oct, and will be getting marry this April. We have been in a relationship for the past 8 years and had lots of fun using the various stickers available in the app, and it might not be an exaggeration to say that the characters and app itself is part of our relationship; we only exclusively use the app for each other.
MODS The case originally came in black color, with some titanium colored accent in front. And the cable routing cut out hole was originally too small, and made the front of the case looks messier than necessary since I have to route the cables even further to the bottom of the mobo from the small opening right in the middle of the PSU shroud right beneath the mobo itself. So I cut 2 new holes, while widening the original hole itself. Then, I paint the whole case, excluding the front titanium, in matte white to give it a softer look.
