Aloha From Hawaii ,
No big deal but I did these my first time out with Computer modding a little.
That is a good looking build you are doing. I have both case's in a box here not being used for a while. I got these years ago and still have
all the internals and pieces. I did the original Blue Alienware one and used it for a while with a ...ASUS M2N32n-SLI in it till the MoBo went.
I modded the right case cover with a cut out of a Alien Head design and Plexi cover. Yours looks like it is coming along good and a lot of
potential also. I did all that you are doing and it was quite easy being a Mechanic and Welder by trade. The tin was easy to do so I just kept
on going till it was finished and useful. The way you are going is what I did for the fans to be better and more useful also.
I also have a original Dragon case I did modd also and it is stored too with the Alien. They are form the earlier years and in top shape also.
I got the Dragon for ...$10.00 Bucks from a old store here and I did it in a Very nice Burgundy color because it was all scratched up from use. I hyave everything that it came with in storage and might use them in the future.
I have a ...MSI 970 Gaming MoBo that I might use in the Black case the Alienware.
These are the cases I have stored away now:
Keep going till done and they will be great to use
Aloha and thanks for your posting of a great project coming about soon.
