Project Name: Project CLUNK
About this mod / project:
Toward the end of last year, (somewhere around November I believe?) I was handed what was left of this case by Hank @ PPCs as it came in on a shipment of RMA cases from misc. retailers in the US on behalf of Bitfenix, and my initial reaction was to turn my nose up at it due to the low-tier case and horrid condition it was in with the stock front fascia busted completely off and pieces hanging left and right from it, dented panels, etc. But the more I looked at the case, the more I felt compelled to just destroy it. And that’s not meant in a negative manner either, although I didn’t really like the case to begin with due to the thin materials and low cost, but what really caught my eye was the inverted-ATX layout versus size. It’s no big secret that I’m a fan of the inverted-ATX layout. I love it for watercooling!
I had promised my friend Duke (whose favorite color is GREEN) that I would build him something sometime for him to transplant his *namebrand MATX AMD system* (cough cough) into a “better enclosure”, and figured this was a perfect opportunity to do so. My initial idea was to build something kind of post-apocalyptic (due to working on BIO-A10 at the time) or something and it quickly moved to putting it loosely in the Mad Max arena, hence the name. It’s just a name borrowed from a character from Mad Max, but nothing to do with the character. It just clicked in place and fit the idea perfectly. It’s my take on the idea of it being a part of the gangs that the MFP tends to run down in those flicks — or at least try to. So it’s an anti-MFP build!
