Junker case mods? *56k nono* - Page 2

post #11 of 16
Remove all rivets and do a complete flip if the chassis (psu on bottom and pci facing right w/ cpu under the pci). Paint the interior after you have cut appropriate holes in the mobo tray (behind cpu backing plate for future removal, and cable routing. Mesh window (everyone does acrylic).

This should be a good start.

you should paint the outside and the inside whatever color that floats your boat (not black way to many people do it nowadays). cut cable management and cpu bracket holes. make a custom logo sidepanel like a nvidia logo or something? make 120mm fan holes, make a new front bezel (maybe). put handles and wheels on it, and to top it off put door hinges on the side panel!

Haha that's practically identical to a POS Xion case I have (internally). Hmmm interesting... Anyways, I'd say interior paint, acrylic side window, HDD rack rotate (if possible), and some cable management mods (cut hole for mobo cable, etc). Also repainting the front panel might be nice. Good luck man.

You could drill som holes for 120mm fans, though I at least my my Lowes hole saws that big cost almost $30. Then again, my "beater" case only takes 80 mm fans, but I dremel'd it to take a 140mm intake, put 2 80's on the side, a larger fan on the back and top and it was within a few *C of my Haf lol, but it didn't look nearly as clean though lol.

Yours tough has potential. Mesh front, side mesh/acrylic, at least you can have plenty to choose what to do. Maybe flip the PSU to the bottom, or at least bow out your other side to accommodate some wire management. Either way, since it is a "Junk Case," try something new, try something you want to do with another case and get some practice in before the real deal. Most of all, have some fun.

I'll bump this, totally forgot about it.

All suggestions welcome, I have a plethora of tools but no dremel. I do have a jigsaw with metal blades for cutting the poor aluminium alloy this thing is made with though, it might tear it to pieces.
