The Frigate (case mod and first time build project)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone!

This will be my first computer build and will also be my first venture into case modding.

The equipment (so far):

Antec 300 case
Rosewill 1000w continuous 80 plus bronze PSU
Intel i7 2600k
OCZ HPC 2GB x2 DDR3 1600mhz RAM
EVGA GTX460 1024mb

Currently in the process of being shipped:

MSI P67A-GD55 Mobo
(had to import from the UK due to recall here in the states, will get a new one via warranty when the replacement comes to the market **didn't feel like waiting**)

Samsung 500gb 7200rpm HD

Second EVGA GTX460 1024mb (SLI Config)

Will purchase on the 15th of this month:
(the following items will be chosen based on all of your suggestions...help-a-nublet-out )

x 1 Silent 140mm case fan
x 4 Silent 120mm case fans
x1-2 SSD for RAID config
generic DVD Multidrive
lighting kit (possibly UV? I have a thing for black lights)
Corsair H50


THE PLAN:

I will be going for a CLEAN/SLEEPER look for this case, nothing too fancy, but still want to make it elegant. I find beauty in simplicity

1.Full black interior paint job (to get rid of that tacky natural metal finish inside my antec 300)
2.Custom grommets for cable management
3.Possible use of thin foam sticky panels for sound deadening
4.Use of hard black PVC piping to conseal wires as they travel through the case (i have the image in my head, have yet to see whether this will possible or not)
5.Hiding of ALL WIRES for a clean look


The Visuals:

Gonna be interested in this one, as I've been thinking of doing some work on my 300.
