In the middle of 2008 I decided that it was time to upgrade my dying system of 6 years so I set about looking what cases and hardware was available. Modding was something that I had heard of and fancied having a go at but never had the guts to actually get started on a serious project. After looking around the net for a few months I stumbled upon the bit-tech website and was overwhelmed by the amount of fantastic designs and builds that were being showcased on the forums, from this I got the guts and finalized the plan that I was going to build something special.
The planning stage began using Google sketchup on some pre designed cases but I quickly came to the conclusion that none of the cases on offer would fit the bill for what I intended to do so the decision was made to build the case entirely from scratch. In late 2009 I completed the original design which consisted of a full tower case with 2 sections, the bottom to house hard drives, power supply and the radiators, and the top which would hold the core of the rig. This hopefully would help to aid in the heat management by keeping the warm air generated by the radiators away from the main system.
