Introduction:

The popularity of case modification in the last two years is becoming more and more evident as hardware manufacturers continue to change their existing product lines to keep up with consumer demand. For the average consumer, selecting a case can be a lengthy process since new products can be classified under a wide variety of different categories. While standard pre-modified cases will find acceptance with a majority of the general public, there are alternative professional services available for those individuals who want a unique custom case that they can call their own. VoyeurMods based out of Rio Rancho, New Mexico has recently expanded their online retail operation to offer professional case modification services which include airbrush painting, laser cutting, water-jet cutting, H2O retro-fit, PSU modding and custom enclosures. Today in the MTB Labs, we will be evaluating a custom modified Lian-Li PC-V1100B Mid-Tower Case which includes an all-in-one water cooling solution.

Specifications:

The MTB Custom PC-V1100B is a mid-tower case that incorporates several modifications and precision water-jet features themed after the MTB Logo. Consumers have the option of selecting their own personal designs from the VoyeurMods product catalog. The MTB Custom PC-V1100B Mid-Tower Case comes pre-assembled and supports all ATX formats with a maximum motherboard size of 12" x 9.6". Here are some specifications taken directly from the VoyeurMods website:

The VoyeurMods MTB Custom PC-V1100B Mid-Tower Case was shipped in a colourful black and white double-walled corrugated box with the case manufacturer's logos and images printed on all sides. The packaging inside the box was good with the case sealed in protected plastic with two pieces of polystyrene located on the top and bottom of the package.

My first impressions of the VoyeurMods MTB Custom PC-V1100B Mid-Tower Case after removing the packaging were extremely positive. I had opted for a simplistic design incorporating the MTB Logo and requested the inclusion of a high performance water cooling solution. Out of the box, the custom case speaks volumes in terms of aesthetic design and craftsmanship which would please any case modder. The case itself, is based on Lian-Li's latest mid-tower offering and measures approximately 210mm (W) x 490mm (H) x 550mm (D). The overall look is very classy and sophisticated with beveled edges and sleek anodized aluminum external panels. The VoyeurMods MTB Custom PC-V1100B Mid-Tower Case was bundled with an assortment of accessories which include drive mounting brackets, mounting screws, metal springs, motherboard stand-offs, zip ties, 1/2" plastic hose clamps and a mini screwdriver.
