Default Mom's Mod - Everquest Themed Pay it Forward Build



PCPartPicker Link: https://pcpartpicker.com/list/zn9Zw6



Hey everyone!

Just wanted to get the mod log started for our newest case mod! It won’t be anything super crazy just a simple themed “Pay it Forward” mod for my mother.

BACKGROUND

My mother was always encouraging and supportive in my gaming growing up and to this day still plays Everquest(15 years later…). Because of this, I am transplanting her computer guts into a Nanoxia CoolForce 1 Tempered Glass edition case. Thankfully Nanoxia is sponsoring the case, fans and LED strips to make this a reality.



So as we continue down this journey, help me celebrate a belated birthday/retirement/Mother’s Day gift.

CONCEPT

The front panel of the case will have the EQ logo in lavender and a vinyl decal shot of her halfling druid.



The glass side of the case will be frosted with the druid logo. Her main character’s name on the custom PSU shroud.



If we can manage to get the wood and hardware, upgrading her gaming workstation is a priority as her small desk does not have the storage to handle her crafts and computer. So I did up a concept for a desk that would provide her with all the organization she would need.





Until the next update, Happy Modding!

Hey everyone!

Time for a long overdue update! Let’s make this a big one!

First I’d like to welcome aboard our newest sponsor GAMDIAS! Who provided a mouse and mouse mat. Also, our streaming partner @SomeRandomChicx from Twitch who provided the matching GAMDIAS keyboard!





To continue with materials for this build, we ordered some sleeving to make our custom extensions from MainFrame Customs!




Now to get onto what you came for….. the case modding. We unboxed the case and got straight to work. First, we flipped the optical cages. Then took the case apart and reassembled it in a reverse ATX configuration. Next to strengthen the motherboard tray to finalize the mod.







The hardest part was making the front mesh back up in a way that still looked normal-ish




Our temporary pile of parts while we took the case apart.




Our custom vinyl stickers! They will pop nicely against the black case!




Until the next update, Happy Modding!

Mod Components:
Case: Nanoxia CoolForce1
Fans: Nanoxia CoolForce 120/140mm
Keyboard: GAMDIAS Ares P1
Mouse: GAMDIAS Hades
Gaming Mat: GAMDIAS NYX
