my simple 5minute mod

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
I'm not completely sure if this is considered "modding" but, I did modify the appearance of the original case, so here is what my xion case looks like normally

Side panel removed to mod

metal piece removed, sharp edges grinded down and acrylic reattached.

as for this piece, I am going to use the 80mm fan outline, and mounting holes to make a spot for an 80mm fan on the top of my case

tell me what you think
I apologize for the image quality, my digital camera is in storage =P

Well the circle is on the side panel of your case. I don't get where you're putting a fan on top of your case.

Much more to my taste--now you have a case that is particular to your needs,

Keep up the good work--somtimes the simple things are what work best.
