Antec 900 Modification.

post #1 of 27
Thread Starter 
Well i was getting sick of having a dull and boring case, and wanted to change this.

So some of my major ideas are :

- Painting It
- Removing Mesh Grill On Side And Replacing With Acrylic
- Rerouting Wires
- Getting Rid Of The LED's They are very annoying when the computer is in your room !
- Something to do with the front mesh plates but unsure, im up for ideas. (Currently thinking Maybe Leaving it bare, or Painting Them. *Ideas Please*

So far ive done up some ideas for a paint scheme i think may look nice.

I Like the Yellow and the black the most, (first image)

Ive got a friend who works in an engineering company so my case is going into be sandblasted on monday. i will then primer it and sand it down.

But im up for any ideas, so feel free to send me links or tell me about ideas that you think would look good on an antec 900 Series

i'm not a big fan of change for the sake of change, and the last thing i'd want in my room is a giant yellow box with stripes all over it. people already think i'm a geek when my see my stock 900

part of the reason i bought my 900 is because it's black and has a kind of a subtle look to it for such an extreme case. you really need to hook up with CyberDruid though. you and him will get along great.

i will say that these cases look hot with their insides painted black. i would have done that to mine if i was a decent painter. i'm not, so i didn't.

i thought about pulling the black mesh off the side panel and replacing it with a regular piece of acryllic. that would be easy to do. then i got a Zalman and now i like having a fan blowing right on it. keeps my temps down.
