antec 900 transformation*pics page 5*

post #1 of 58
Thread Starter 
Well i want a different custom computer now...the blue lights is just not cutting it anymore..so guess what? RED is the answer! haha
I want to transform my antec 900 into a red machine. heres basically what i want to do:
Replace all fans with red LED SILENT! fans
Replace/tint side window red similar to this one users lian li case that he modded.

I'm on around 100 dollar budget keep that in mind
i have no idea how i would replace the side panel so im looking mainly for a tint.
i have no cutting tools.

thanks

You could also get a 4"Red Cold Cathode Light Kit or a 12" Cold Cathode Kit Light for the red effect, hey the next name of your pc, The Red Effect

They are loud. I know from experience.

I would go with some red Tri-Cools since you have the option to lower the fan speed and noise.

Just turning your computer from BLUE to RED is hardly CUSTOM. Seems like a pointless waste of $100 to me... But I guess if that's your thing.

Here is a radical idea...

Why not just take out all the BLUE fans and replace it with quieter non-led ones. You can even call it... Stealth or something.

EDIT: Also, i might want to put some sound proofing foam in my computer, can anyone tell me if this would be efficient for an antec 900? if so, please link me to some foam

Well young dude, take my advice from an older dude, your sig computer is far from "ridiculously unnecessary computer". If you have a $100 to blow on something that is ridiculously unnecessary, you should spend it on a better HS and maybe some better better ram so that you can ridiculously overclock your computer. But if you are into that ridiculous all show and no go, Christmas lights look, then go for it.
