As the MOD24 team formerly known as Team Mongoose, Ron Lee Christianson and Lee Harrington are no strangers to stiff mod competition. Read below to see what went into this absolute gem of a build.

Why Assassin's Creed?
We haven't see many mods based on Assassin's Creed, so we wanted to create an old world theme that tied into the entire feel of the game franchise.

Another detailed mod from you guys... please walk us through the build.
We choose the Corsair Carbide 300R as the base for our Assassin's Creed project.
The case is made to look like a pirate treasure box with wood grain panels, clay sculpted and molded pieces,and some bad ass airbrush art. The entire build process took about 3 weeks.
Ron sculpted the skulls, locks and other ornamental details out of clay.
We used a mixture of polystyrene and ABS to fabricate the effects panels along with polymer clay and RTV silicone mold making process for the skull, lock and buckle straps.
A custom window was made to complete the theme of old world treasure box, while showing off the hardware inside.
We did a faux wood grain finish on the front 5.25" bays and other areas on the chassis.
The back side panel was airbrushed with the Assassin's Creed emblem.
We also made the custom rivets from polymer clay along with the ornamental details.
For the interior, we tried to keep as nice and clean as possible.
We opted for no internal lighting so that the Corsair and GeForce logos on the AIO and GPU stood out on their own.
