Default The Burly Beaver, a proud Canadian Rig

So guys. I recently purchased the busty but beautiful Coolermaster ATCS 840 case. My previous centurion was getting a little small and tight to fit my large... rock solid....Hard....Drive... and motherboards, heatsinks, etc. I am now looking to build a proud and canadian rig . It will contain only the colours red, white and black. I will be modding it over the rest of May and hopefully it will be complete by then. My idea in terms of heavy modding on this case mainly will be the led's and large sidepanel to complete the "Canada" theme. Here are a few photos so far of what I have done.

Coolermaster ATCS 840
Intel Core i5 750 @ 4.00 ghz
Asus Maximus III Formula P55 Mobo
Corsair XMS3 4gb
BFG GTX 260 MAXCORE @ 700, 1400, 1100
OCZ Agility 32gb
Seagate Barracuda 320 gb

My Dad's beautiful garage where my modding will take place

I painted the inside of the case flat black with some cheap Krylon spraypaint. (No pictures)

No 2.5" drive bay adapters, had to drill the plastic case.

Some left over car tubing from our Datsun 510 project.

The completed inside (before any mods, lights,etc.)

A beauty shot.

So I will keep you guys posted when my mod supplies come in from Frozen CPU. The finished project will be done by the end of May.

I'd like to thank my Dad for letting me use his drill press without safety goggles lol. I'd also like to thank my brother for giving me some interior tips and NickPolyz (on forum) for coming over and giving opinions on the case.

It'll be interesting to see when it's done.


The "car tubing" is called 'split loom'.

Also , as a professional metalworker who's been slashed in the face by drillpress turnings before ,I can say :

Wear your safety goggles !!
