Case Mod Project Skadi ~ sdbmod | CaseLabs Mercury S8





The time has come! I purchased a CaseLabs Mercury S8 for more than a year ago, the plan was to start with the new project as soon as I received the case but I never managed to start building due to work and some other projects. I'm finally done with all of my other projects so I thought it would be a good idea to start building again!

Here's a list of all the components and all of my plans for the build, I'll most likely add some more ideas in the future. If you guys have any tips or ideas then make sure to share if you'd like! :D
