What Can I do? 1st time modder.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi im new to modding cases, or nething for that madder. What can I do to this case? I added a 120mm fan in the back for better airflow but idk what i can do to this case. Doesnt look very modable to me.

Well here is the stock picture cus i cant get the resolution of my pics to a size that it allows to upload. Got any help on changing the res of pics?
The pic is of the black version of my case.

I quite like that case TBH

Spraying the inside of the case is something I always recommend doing, and a blowhole on the top as an exhaust would help get rid of any of the hot air collecting at the top of the case...all that air being forced in by those two big fans needs somewhere to escape!

The only dislike about that case I have is that both fans are on the same level, hot air rises so they should have stuck the side exhaust fan higher up, instead it's kinda restricting good airflow from the mobo. As for modding, you can mod anything, you need 3 things. Determination, a plan, materials. I think the case is fine as it is but I mean you can always add different L.E.D's or do a UV pen mod to the mobo for effect

Hows the cable management holes in the case? Thats an easy mod to do that makes a world of difference (especially if your air cooling).

Case looks like a lot of plastic or I'd say you could paint it a different color, black is very original . (You could still paint it if you wanted...)

As prosser said, paint the inside. Get that cable management mod done, paint it a nice shade of flourescent pink and call yourself a winner!

Well i have the silver version of the case and my cables are pretty well managed. But i dont really have ne running through holes except for the sata drive cord. Painting the inside is an idea i could do when i do my big upgrade in the future cus im going to get new everything so i guess that would work. I just dont want it to have drip marks. And does spray paint stay on plastic that well?

If you sand it well it sticks great. Just be sure your pieces are sanded and clean before you start spraying. You won't run or drip the paint, just go many light even coats rather than one or two really heavy coats.

For your pics, if you register at photobucket.com it will resize your pics automatically. Alternatively, open the picture you want to resize in MS Paint, click "Image" then go down to "Sketch/Skew" and change the horizontal/vertical %'s to resize the pic. A 85% x 85% will shrink it a smaller amount, but lower numbers like 30% x 30% will shrink it significantly
