Project: Mod in a Week // Giving new life to an old mod - Page 2

@Justarealguy

Thanks! ; )

@Willhemmens

I got the idea from a mod I saw at last years biggest lan party here in Spain (The Campus Party in Valencia), back then I was sporting my previous mod (much more complicated than this one, as in paintjob, but no mod aside from liquid cooling, leds and the like inside, so figured id try it out in my next one.

It was much easier than I though it would removing the coolers and so on from all the bits and at the end of the day, they are just plastic or metal, as far as I can tell from current results (have worked further since my last post) they look great. The only thing you should be carefull about is HDDs, it´s fine to paint the top and sides, but not the underneath as the chipset is there plus other connections (and of course the frontal connections), masking tape galore : )

It´s 00.25am

A quick update before I get some dinner and go to bed.

HDDs are finished.





So is the sound card frontal unit.





And here a preview of how the case looks with the psu, dvd rewriter, memory card reader and sound card frontal unit in it.





See you tomorrow!

It´s Wednesday the 1st of June (White Rabbits!) 13.00

Today, after a day withouth sleep and another falling KO way to early and therefore waking up at 6.00am, I finally had a good night sleep. So I woke up at 11 and went straight to business. In the last 2 hours, I have finished all the painting in this project, now all that´s left is putting it all togueter in the case!

First, the ASUS EN GTX 275:





The Sound Blaster X-Fi Platinum Fatality



The eVGA 790i Ultra SLI nForce motherboard



The water pump in it´s frontal casing



And finally for now, what´s behind the front door of the case.



That´s it for now, see you in a couple of hours with more updates, if nothing bad happens, I think I could finish the project today, so really it should be "Mod in 3 days" : )
