"The Hive" Corsair 650D with a little case modding( Couldnt help myself and started again lol)

post #1 of 64
Thread Starter 
So i have owned my 650D for almost a year and before that i owned alienware.(yea yea i know alot of you hate alienware). I built this because i didnt want to pay double for something that wasnt top of the line by dell... Tho i do miss the cosmetic side of alienware. So this is my first time doing anything like this and I am sure there will be mistakes and changes along the way. Welcome to my case mod called the "Hive". First thing i am trying to do is build an enclosement to cover the psu and hdd's. Here are some pics






The only problem i had with this was the plexiglass is really flimsy and not very sturdy. So back to the drawing board redface.gif
Here is the solution i came up with

So now i am painting it and waiting on some red vinyl decals to come in the mail.thumb.gif

I have asked dwood to make me a new cover where the mesh grill is on the front of the case. That guy is really busy but hopefully he can pull through thumb.gif

Subbed. Looks promising, I love how you're trying to get that alienware feel in there!

Here is my design to replace the mesh filter in front that dwood is making for me. Its a solid piece with the designs cut out for the airflow. Looking forward to getting that piece biggrin.gif
