I get frustrated with most online case reviews. They usually skim over a lot of the case's flaws. When I have time, I like to dissect cases and show you what the hardware review sites neglect. Since the NZXT Khaos retails for $399, a lot of people want to see justification for it's high cost! I posted this video today

I'm doing a bio-mechanical with the Khaos. I've been tearing down the Khaos in my spare time. I actually like the case stripped down to it's shell. It's the extruded aluminum surface I dig. I ordered this medical model skull as my starting point.

medical model skull as my starting point








Heres the entire bay assembly removed from the chassis.




Whats your remedy for a headache?!

This is the housing from a small motor I found. I love the design. The skull will be hosting the system Power & Reset switches (22mm & 16mm lamptron vandal switches, w/orange leds) The mounting plate I made (below) attaches to the upper half of the skull.





I'll be implementing a lot of plastic wire loom, heres 1" loom inserted up the nose, HR GIGER style


Adding more mechanical details to the skull, 1/8" Black opaque acrylic will serve as skull plate


Holding over heat gun


After the acrylic is flexible, I can bend it to follow the curvature of it's forehead


8/32 socket head screws fasten on the skull plate
