ACQUA by Tantricmodz

This is mhike "tantricmodz" from the Philippines.  This was my entry for CMWS 2019.  Inspired by my birth sign Aquarius, Acqua or Aqua is a greenish-blue color, often thought of as  the color or shade of water.

As for the theme and design for this project I plan on doing a minimalistic approach for the C700P using toned down colors with a touch of modern 
but classic appearance that will suit and match the entire look of the C700P. Most of the mods will be done on the interior of the case but I will keep the internal Structure of the case intact. As to preserve the original look of the case.

I also stripped down the entire case. It's much easier to plan everything when you have a blank canvass.

This custom piece was based on the EK logo. i will be using this a custom cover for the motherboard tray.  I decided to use this instead of using a plain design to hide all the wires.
