I need suggestions as to how I could mod the inside of this case......

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I'm going to be doing an extensive upgrade consisting of a new motherboard, cpu and ram over the next few days and I'm going to try to better my cable management skills with this case before I move on to something much nicer this summer. Any ideas as to how I can modify the inside of this case to allow for a cleaner and more professional look because there doesn't seem to be many options with my current and very out dated case.

For starters, you can cut holes for cable management (use C-channel to line the holes), and you could take out the lower drive bay(s).

Also, the best way, IMHO, to improve the inside of a case is to paint it and get rid of that ugly gray color.

this is good advice, i would also flip the psu over, since you have that space up there, it will still get air to cool. by flipping the psu, you can route the wires easier. drill a hole right at the end of the psu, and run the wires down to where they need to go.
