Suggest me a case to mod. :D - Page 2

post #11 of 37
You could try the windowed version of the Centurion 5.

It's a great case, and cheap.

Also, the windowed version of the Apevia is just shy of $150 - and it's just a 601 with sexy fans with an optional PSU thrown in.

Thanks for the suggestions though.

And is that case with the mod in the bays yours? Looks a lot like a 301...but...different. O.o
Lol at me.... Your first requirement, "no non-windowed cases"...Der!

Well...This Coolermaster is smaller, but might work...?

If you are open to it, you could install your own window. That pic I posted earlier is an Antec ( I have since sold it) that I modded with the side panel window. If you had a full-tower you could do a dual-window mod...?

Yeah! I love component shopping!

I think it would fit if you had an externally mounted rad and a 5.25in resivour.

Antec eh.

Googling that case, the front looks a lot like a mix between a Stacker and a Centurion 5.... This is the same case, right?

The main reason I want a pre-done window is time...I'll already have to wait a week or so for the paint to dry completely, and tearing my parts in and out (would have to do the window mod at my uncles) would get a tad bit annoying.

I think you'd be hard pressed to fit a WC setup in a Mid Tower like the Lian Li PC7B.

You would be happy with the build quality, but that is a small case.

My nephew bought an Ultra Alumnus. That thing is just plain junk. I wouldn't take that case if someone gave it to me. You can actually FEEL it flex when you pick it up. Avoid this one like the Plague.

Really? For a while I was gunna buy it, but it's hard to find somewhere to ship it to NC for under $150....TigerDirect charges tax to NC.

Good thing I chose a case for a third of the price instead of jumping on that one, then....

i , on the contrary, vouch for the aluminus. its light but not crappy, since its made of aluminum which is better than steel; also the window is HUGE and its a full tower case- lots of space for wc gear.

i would get my case to mod though, 16 dollar full tower! run it without a side panel. thats what i am doing and i dont have much dust.

It is almost the same, but the particular model that I posted has a pre-installed window.

I can understand not wanting to do your own. I have done a couple and it was very tedious work for me to keep the material from buckling as I used metal shears.

I was just thinking....

Paint is gunna be damn expensive. <_>
Just because of the price of paint, the C5 case is looking nicer everytime I look at it...I'll probably ring up about $50 in paint alone.
