Antec 300 work log - Page 5

post #41 of 81
Good job on the 300 mod that case just wasn't designed well for modern systems. I like the before and after photos seeing how things improved.

I think the hardest bit was hiding all those cables behind the m/b tray and not have any showing apart from gpu leads and all the plugs ,
Took 40 minutes to get the side panel on !

oh' and thankyou DUpgrade biggrin.gif

Would be tough to do the CPU and two video cards and fit it all internally in that case. You could mount a 240 rad on the front and another 120 on the rear exhaust. It might look cluttered but it's the only way I can see you getting enough rads in there to cool it well enough.

would it be best to just do cpu or gpu's then you reckon ? or leave her how she is ? might possibly think of getting antec 920 (i think thats what its called) but dont know how well that would cool my cpu

You could go with the 240 in the front and just do the CPU and it would still look pretty neat.

What kind of paint did you use? What kind of preparation did you do before you painted?

I sent her off to a small local car garage and had her properly done but i did alot of prep first with scotch brite ( i think thats what it is) took me 3 days rubbing it all down and then washed it down to get all the dust off then sent her in ! ( i think it was the same type primer , paint and laquer that he uses for cars metal work) he then polished it all up for me too !

so all in all not too hard apart from rubbing it down biggrin.gif

cheating a bit i know but its a 100 percent better than i could ever do it ! biggrin.gif
