I will be starting with my video card casing. The video card casing will be modded from the ground up. I think I will be the first who ever thought of case modding the video cards. If anybody knows of anybody else please let me know. I will be modding three video card casings, I will utilizing three way SLI.

Now this is just one of the three I would have to mod.
The other two would be identical except the wording, one would have the word "THE"
and the other would have the word "INCREDIBLE"

This is how the other two video cards will look like

Now I'm going to build the base where the motherboard, Hard drives and SSD's will be placed.
The base will be suspended over the head of the HULK figurines, so there will be pictures
of the base showing one corner of the base open ended. So that a straight steel beam will be
place in that open to betray the HULK lifting the base.

Thank You for the comments.

Now I will build one of the sides of the lid. It will have the holes for two 80mm fans.

Now the motherboard I will be using is the ASUS Rampage III Extreme.

In the next few photos i'm going to use the power and reset buttons on the motherboard to
power on my case mod. So I'm going to build a cover to protect from touching any other components.
on the motherboard.

Now the case modded video cards will have to be positioned differently, because since they where
modded with a 1/4" thick fiberglass and i'm going tri-sli. They will not fit on the motherboard.
So I decided to place the cards above the motherboard, above the base lid and I will be using PCI
express extenders in order to accomplish this. In the next few photos I will be building the brackets
that will hold the cards.

This is how the case is looking, half the case will have a lid to cover half of the motherboard and the other half will expose the video cards. The covering lid can be lifted up.

Now I will be covering the face of the plexi glass with green glitter and clear polyester resin , in order to cover up the wires that will be seen through
the plexi glass.

After building the case with all the metal, plexi-glass, three video cards, motherboard, ssd's, and two hard drives.
The case got pretty heavy. So I had to think of a way to prop the case as shown in the photos, betraying the hulk lifting the case.
So I decided to build a base underneath. This base will include a 15TB home built server, it will include nine 3TB hard drives.
a motherboard and a power supply. The base will also include two UPS. Now this base will give me enough weight in oder to keep the
case from tilting over.
