Red Antec 900 Mod - Page 2

post #11 of 26
Thread Starter 
Wish they made the Antec 900 with a bigger window and red fans, oh well. The 1200 is painted black inside right? Window is still similar to the 1200 though.

Also, are there any sites the specialize in cases or would have a wide variety to choose from?

Isn't the stock window big enough? It shows almost everything except the drive bays, which aren't much to look at.

Just not a huge fan of the mesh crap and the window looks small. Might just be me though. My concerns are the cable management, having the dual red led 120mm fans in the front, plenty of room for my Tuniq Tower, room so I can put white cathodes at the top and bottom of the case, and a pretty big window to show off the stuff.

If yo udo cable managment and the such, the 900 has plenty of room, here is mine, its a little dated, i moved the HDD closer to cut down on wire, and made everything a little nicer.

I was also looking at the Centurion 590, but I was concerned about cable management and its size. I could buy 2-3 of the 4-in-3 devices and I already have 3 plain black yate loon fans. If I bought that, I could install my own window, and have 2-3 120mm fans in the front and the white cathodes. Only thing that worries me is it's too small and its cable management. I have around $300 to work with for the whole mod btw.

Also looking at the Antec 300, which might be best suited (think someone suggest that earlier too). Again only concern is cable management because it doesn't look like you can stuff anything behind the mobo tray.

Yea i mentioned the A300, i think there are a few mods out there for that case already, may be worth it to look, bu ti know Antec has high standards of quality, along with exactly what your looking for.

Not a huge fan of color on the inside (i think it distracts from the computer parts) but i LOVE that racing stripe running on the outside of the case. Overall it still looks good, but damn that stripe looks real good.

Posted this on another forum, this was my current idea:

Okay, I'm really sick of my Coolermaster Elite 330 case and I have some money on my hands atm, so here's what I'm thinking of doing.

Buying this case: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...tCode=10008004

Using that case, I'd like to paint the inside red (ideas, tips, paint to use?), go with white cathodes to show off my parts: http://www.petrastechshop.com/lo12ducocaki3.html , and go with 4 of these, 2 on top and 2 in the front: http://www.petrastechshop.com/12yalod1redl.html and control them with this: http://www.xoxide.com/subl4poblred.html

To hold a 2nd in the front I need to buy this: http://www.frozencpu.com/products/13...TB-3T4-E1.html

For each stock grill, I want to cut them out and use this to surround the cut out: http://www.mnpctech.com/UChannel.html

Last, but not least I want to buy this and cut out a hole for it: http://www.crazypc.com/products/PX82170.html

Opinions? It will probably be a pretty expensive project, but I think it could come out looking very nice and very custom. I also looked at the Antec 300, but the cable management options looked bleak. Atleast this one I can hack job the back of the motherboard tray to make holes to route the cables.

Also, has anyone used vinyl film. Someone says it looks really cheap, is that true?
post #20 of 26
What case are you going with? Link didnt work for me. And for the Vinyl, depending on how well you apply it, ive seen some really bad looking results, and some damn good results.
