Hello there all!

Well, its been a good weekend so far. I just got back from senior keg! 8 kegs and 100 people out in 180 acres private land. Needless to say i'm hung over so time for my first paint + cable + lights mod

I chose this case and equipment because it is trying really hard to look cool (but it doesn't), I bought some paint and didn't use it yet, and I am really bored and hung over. Also, my girlfriend is out of town so I am giving the old man boobs a nice tan outside.

This is going to be my file server, specs are (and i'm guessing here):
AMD 3200 CPU
Radeon GPU
512 DDR memory

here is original pics:

So I JUST finished this first session of the mod (painting..ftw!)

Now keep in mind all I am going to use for this mod is:

1. Phillips Screwdriver
2. Swiss army knife
3. Can of Ultra-flat black paint
4. And MAGIC HANDS!



Starting off:




Bare Bones:




The equipment:




No YOU'RE cute




Duct tape to cover the component side:




Gett'in there:




Even closer:




One can down MISSION ACCOMPLISHED! (well...almost )

Alright, we are getting into the afternoon of this mod, which has quickly now become a one day mod ! I am formatting the HDD as we speak with Linux Ubuntu 8.04 Desktop (soon to be server )

Here is finished product with some LED's installed and a missing side panel fan (the plastic got scratched a litte ...oh well)


Side View:




Case with lights:




Case without lights (and a crappy camera)




Better picture with lights on
IT'S DONE!



MY FIRST MOD EVER
