Ultimate Case modding GUIDE - Submit your tutorials - Show off your mod!

This is my flex. It's a shabby old core duo laptop which I bought for five bucks from the tip, and I got the controller for four dollars from a pawn shop. It's all just hot glue and time spent filing things into the right shape.

You've seen Guitar Hero on PC, but have you seen PC on Guitar Hero?

Gonna do that keychain from the original mod very soon! I actually had this idea a while ago and already started removing pins (it's really tedious, if done carefully). Now, I think, I'll finish it.

This is kind of a mod, but more of a project I am working on for using spare chassis for other things:

3D printer controllers usually are just mounted to the side of the printer, or some come in large controller boxes (with loud fans)

So, I was thinking about taking mITX or Micro ATX cases and using them as a single/multi printer controller and power housing unit.

Can use quiter cooling with more efficient airflow.


First mod is a PCI bracket for mounting a control board.  Im using the Big Tree Tech SKR 1.3 (which has the same dimensions and mount locations of the 1.4)Untitled.thumb.png.855fa2ca102947ee9b4210963d9d1b00.png


My only problem right now is that my FDM printer is down while I need to replace the FEP on my resin printer. 

I have to print this in two parts on the resin printer due to the X axis on the build plate being 120mm, and the X-axis of the bracket being 120mm (the slicing software says nope)


Will be working on making an optical drive bay mount to hold industrial PSU's.

Aready have some 120mm and 80mm brackets edited to work with this.

I saw that my pre-built case had a 92mm fan vent but mounting holes and the front panel cover blocked air flow. I cut out 92x92mm square and drilled some mounting holes. 


Temps are decent for an i7 4770k at ~4.3Ghz. ~55°c

Hi everyone, 


as read on the very first page, listing all the tools and material and method of mod. I did this and will like to share.

I got this 2nd hand graphics card which was at a very bad condition but after mod, I am able to use it.

Right after I did this, a colleague of mine approaches me to do the same as he was having crashes and such. On my first video which is on my card, I have not explain what it does. 

Here is what I did for him and explains how this graphics card mod work. 


currently am working on migrating my pc components to the o11d mini case. majority complain about the top panel of the black variant as it's made of acrylic, unlike the white variant which is aluminum. I have done a simple mod and the process on how I did it. In additional alot just use the uni fan SL120 which is nice but everyone is having that, so I wanted something different. so this is what I did. 

Happy New Year 2021 everybody, just to add on with the final product on the migration of my old PC components from a Lan Li Lancool II case to this O11D mini
