Antec 300 DIDN'T go white, just made it look nice =) 1 final pic!

post #1 of 52
Thread Starter 
Ok, first of all, my plans keep changing, but the present plan is to basically flip the mobo plate upside down and on to the other side, so the psu is on the top frown.gif.
If I could I would change the PSU:s place to the bottom but it's just too hard, even though I have the stuff to start welding.
I'm also getting rid of the 5.25" and 3.5" bays, and having my HDD set up behind the mobo tray, or finding a better place for it.
Going to be either full white, or full black, I can't decide.. Help me please?
There will be cable routing holes.
The 360 will be _cheap_, 50 euros is like the maximum.. I don't have anything against buying used, so I might be lucky and find one smile.gif
Until I find it, this is my current state:

This is the case so far:

Ugh, black or white biggrin.gif

You can go white as long as you put a pic of Matti Ensio Nykänen on the side.

Hahaha, just spilled my coffee
I guess I'm going white, but unfortunately I don't think Matti will fit the overall theme that well
The "theme" is going to be: shiney white on the outside, matt(i? ) white on the inside Gonna paint fans, heatspreaders and just about everything white.. Don't really know what colour would be best as a secondary colour.. I really liked project Citrus's theme, but I don't want to copy
I guess I could pull off a totally white case, but.. I'm a colourful person

You can't really copy anyone. Every color scheme has been exhausted. Im painting/ modding a old matx Compaq case. Painting it pink and white zebra just for the hell of it =]

Hmm, yeah that colour would be good with white, but the thing is, blue makes a white case look cold
It's cold enough here
An idea that sprang to my mind. In hardware stores over here we have orange 3mm pet "rope", that is hollow and could be used for sleeving! And it's CHEAP! I have to go to one today to find out how well it would cover a wire, but since I'm a student, I don't have money for anything better (atleast in the fields of computer modding and watercooling ).
Edit:
More ideas! We have a cnc router lying around... I could make a really cool front grill, which would cover the area where the black mesh was. The other option is to buy some cool looking mesh from a hardwarestore, or salvage it from something..
The color scheme right now is looooots of white with some orange
Fans are going to be Gtyphoons, but are the 1850rpm Ap-15's noisy? I want to have a quiet computer. From the video's I've seen, they are like a whisper And I can always build LM317 fan controllers.

UPDATE 1

Got my "sleeving" from the hardware shop. It costs next to nothing, is partly see-through, it's orange. I'll probably stick with this, it doesn't look as bad as in the photos.
"sleeved" a wire, and double sleeved jsut to see how it looks.

Cats interested in my sleeving

Just the sleeving


I've been thinking, and I realised I'm gonna need a LOT of white spray cans

Other thing right now is getting a rad.. My current rad could be chopped up into a 240 rad, but I've got my eyes on an alphacool nexxxos extreme 3 rad, it's 49 euros shipped
And Gentle typhoons 9 euros a piece, no shipping fee :O
Just can't make my mind up about buying the rad, because I'm going to mod the case for a 360, why not buy it now? But then again it's 50 euros.. Which is a only day's salary! Hopefully going to buy the 360 rad, some mx-2 and 3 AP-15's tomorrow..
