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!

    Thanks!  Normally I'd do something over the top.... but she's easily button pushed so clean and professional design instead.

    Actually, you're not too far off lol.  He wouldn't want me to do him a mod, but he has requested I come clean and organize the inside of his case.  Who knows, maybe I'll paint a cross and scripture on it for him(he's a retired pastor).

    The mods are always that much more special when you do it for a family member. The concept art looks good.

    Agreed! Thanks, with our recently purchased vinyl cutter it's going to make it easier for clean lines and wording

    I'm curious to see how the actual cutting looks with that vinyl cutter.

    Haha, we'll see how easy Mom's mod goes.  Still waiting to receive the case.  Thankfully I should be able to do most of it in 1 weekend.

    Nice build for your mom. Luckily Everquest wouldn’t take a lot of power to run at max. I wonder what exactly it takes to get it going at 4K.
