Red Antec 900 Mod

post #1 of 26
Thread Starter 
Thinking of doing a red Antec 900 to match my Saitek Eclipse and Diamondback 3G both of which are also red. I currently have a crummy CM Elite 330 and I'm not crazy about a lot of things about it. Here's what I was thinking of doing:

http://www.frozencpu.com/products/66...ack.html#blank

Buying that and installing these cathodes: http://www.petrastechshop.com/lo12ducocaki3.html

For the 120mm fans I would install 3-4 of these: http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1redl.html

I was also going to cut out the 120mm grills and some holes for cable management and use this trim for the edges: http://www.petrastechshop.com/neruedtrmo.html

Last, I want to paint the inside red, kind of like this person did: http://forums.hexus.net/chassis-syst...-paintjob.html

I'm really not sure what paint to use or what other supplies I need for this project (besides the obvious hole cutters, etc). Opinions?

Those fans you picked are horrible. 28dBA with only 47CFM? With 28dBA, you should be getting like 20 more CFM out of it.

Those Yate Loons push plenty of air and are relatively silent.

My only other option would be the Thermaltakes and I've heard they're pretty damn loud. I know Yates are known for being quiet, good fans, so I put them down. Only thing I'm wondering is if there are any other cases where the 2x 120mm fans in the front are showing and where I can use dual white cathodes with a large window to show off the parts. I think the original window that comes with the 900 is hideous personally.

Nzxt Tempest. Its a larger case, but a little less quality build. Its cheaper though, and has predrilled holes for cable managment

Window is kind of meh and the fans led don't really show through. Also, does the lights on the side shine through the color of the fans?

I dont know much about the case, i bought one and never opened it past knowing that it was a little flimsy in my opinion. You could also try the Antec 1200 (larger Full atx) or the Antec 300 (smaller than A900). The 1200 has the same window design but much better cooling than A900, and the A300 has good cooling, 2 fans in the front, but they arent movable like the 1200 and 900. The 300 also has NO windo, so you could cut your own with a dreml/jigsaw.
