Description

Hey PCPP community,

Here is a short build based off an In Win 303 white case

The build as shown is a simple case upgrade to my brothers old computer as an EARLY Christmas gift from me.

The case is lightly modified to match the theme of his beloved Mercedes.

The parts used are all from his old computer.

A fair amount of planning was done to minimise cable clutter within the case as well as match the theme of his car.


Modifications:

  • Fan controller installed at lower PCIE bracket
  • Shroud covering cable clutter from fan controller on bottom intake
  • Custom racing stripe decals on front and top of case
  • White LED strip underneath case for ambient glow (In Win has cutouts which is extremely convenient to do this!)
  • Motherboard IO cover
  • AMG Logos on front and glass panel
  • Routed cables externally to allow his 5.25 inch optical drive to still be functional

Any questions about the case or build feel free to ask or comment =)

Thanks for viewing!

The question is; do you actually own an AMG Mercedes? :)

How does that 760 perform on gaming?

I'm not too sure as i've never personally used it and this is mostly used by my brother.

It should be ok in most older titles at 1080p but don't expect max settings on newer titles. Its on par with a 960 however requires more power.

That's like putting an SL600 badge... On an SL300.

All kidding aside, this is a very nice build. Merry Christmas!

how did you do the stripe decales and the logos?

The logos are simply car badges that can be attached via the adhesives provided.

The stripe decals are pinstripe vinyl tapes which can be bought from many automotive or online places. They are then cut to required lengths and attached.
