[Antec 900 Mod] I'm at it a 2nd time!

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Well, I am getting bored of my case as it stands now. I did the wire management mod but have decided I need something more drastic.

I cannot guarantee this mod will go through with, seeing as my funds are limited to below 100 bucks or maybe even less, but lets see how this goes.

1. I plan to replace the grills on the front of my 900 with http://www.frozencpu.com/products/26...R-RG35296.html . The only potential problem I see with this is my DVD drive, and the grill itself may not fit into the place I need it to (width wise). I love the look of this and think it would fit nicely. Also, possibly replace the back fan grill with one of them (but one fan grill not the three lol). *This may prove to be too expensive *

2. I plan to cut out the side window (there is an example of this on OCN, soundx98 did a great mod http://www.overclock.net/case-mod-wo...900-mod-2.html ) I plan to use a reflective window like shown by soundx98

3. Colour scheme: Another OCN has inspired me. Run 'N Gun and his radioactive rig. The yellow in that looks absolutely beautiful and I plan to paint it the same colour. The colour catches the eye. I love it!

I may do the PSU upside down mod, and put some LED case feet on. Also might make a the window on the 900 a hinged door!

Also, for the back left panel (side without window) I would like to do an OCN flame cut out with blue acrylic behind it and Blue LED's from the sides to light it up. I would use the material I cut out, and cut out the dark blue inside of the flame and glue it somehow to the acrylic.

I really hope this mod goes through. It isn't overly complex and I think it would freshen up my 900 . If you have any ideas or criticism I would love to hear what you guys got to say. Thanks!

P.S. If sound or Run N. Gun have any problems with me using their ideas please come forward. They are great ideas tho .
