Xion Onyx, Any Modding Ideas?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
So, I have this old junker lying around, and I have no idea what to do with it. I know that I am at least going to paint it, probably black and green to match the current color scheme on it. Any ideas for this case would be greatly appreciated as I am a fairly new modder.


BTW, here's a picture if you don't know what kind of case I am talking about.

Maybe top exhaust or a place for some rads to go, improve airflow in the front (remove doors). Maybe make it so the power supply can be bottom mounted? Cable management is always a plus.

I have this same case sitting in my closet! Following with interest. I think I will be making mine an HDD house and "server". Keep us posted!

That's a prime case for an FTW PC powder coating job, some sound dampening foam, maybe some fan cutouts, a new window. So many possibilities.

So, at the moment, I am thinking of doing some black and green paint work, and I have an old DVD drive that I put a window on top of when I was bored, so I may put another window on top of the case so I can see into that. I also may look into doing a green UV reactive window on the side, as well as painting the silver pieces of the bezel green.

That would look pretty sweet. Have you seen this stuff?

That stuff could look pretty awesome if done right. And for this application, I think it could go well with UV lights, which tend to come off very purple. Just wondering SmasherBasher, would you guys at FTW PC be able to properly prep a piece of green UV reactive acrylic to go on this case, with the screw holes the door already has, as well as a cutout to match the outline of this fan grill?

Also, just got an idea. I think I may set up space on the front for two 120mm fans, and drill out the holes on the silver of the bezel to 1/16" to get air flowing through there.
