I had this old computer laying around so I decided to give the case a new life. This build was mainly an excuse to mod the case.
The part will be use in a living room computer, so music, movies, gaming, something like steamOS, xmbc, openelec ( Right now there steamOs on it). I might switch the case to an m-atx like the zalman T1 to get a less visible computer in the living room.
In the future I'll had a HDD or ssd. For now, it has an laptop hdd. And as you can see in the picture, I got a hole in the case for fans, but there's no grills. So plan is to make some or buy filters/grills. And also put some feets under it.
I know my case is not as nice and functional as the 230T in the component list but I still enjoyed the modding.
Edit: Forgot to add the Nzxt Hue in part since... it's not on the site. It can make a nice light show.
