Description

Everything was reused parts from my old gaming computer from 5 years ago. I just wanted to test building a small 6.3l cube case (185mm x 185mm x 185mm).

-

The third pic with the SilverStone SX600 is not this build, but version 2.0? Still, it's similar enough to get the internal layout with me having to shut down and disassemble the other one :P

The SSD is mounted vertically behind the PSU, through the acrylic with slightly longer screws. There is about 5mm of clearance between the top-mounted 25mm thick fan and the top of the PSU.

The main case differences are the top fan port is only 80mm (vs 140mm) on v2.0, to make enough room to mount an ITX sized GPU up high. The side panel has the cutout for the GPU with a fan grill there. I'll have some more pictures of this one once I actually complete it. This one will be easier to photograph since it's clear acrylic :D

The case isn't particularly cost effective, it would be cheaper to buy something... but all the 'cube cases' aren't actually perfect cubes.

very interesting case mod is there any chance you can post more pic internally and perhaps a semi blue print of that case?

Sure, I'll try to find a moment to shut it down and get a pic with the side off. Unfortunately, it is put together with ease-of-access in mind, and I wasn't really good with the cable management :D

dont worry about the cable management it can always be done later, your custom case must have taken alot of time and planning did you do this all by yourself?if so man you should really post more pic this is epic!quite rare to see stuff like this on the site.+1

I updated with another pic. It's not actually this running build, but v2.0 if you will. It's close enough to get the general idea.

Coolio, but that hanging PSU is scaring me. It's fighting with the CPU fan too. Nonetheless, it's a plus for creativity from me...

The 5mm acrylic is amazingly strong :). It's hard to see, but the PSU is about 45-50mm above the CPU fan. It's not ideal, I've thought about changing the fan orientation or flipping the PSU, but the case draws in cool air from a 140mm hole in the bottom, 8mm under the motherboard.

Pretty cool anyways...I just really like the idea of the case in whole, forgetting the parts, but really just the aesthetics. +1 if I could again. :)
