Case Modding for a Beginner

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey all, I've never done a case mod before, but I was hoping to get some pointers.

I have a Antec p183 case (see computer specs) and for starters, want to do some better cable managing. Right now things are pretty good, but they could be better.

What sort of tools should I have to start? I have all the basic screw drivers, and a dremel so far. Also, what are some good ways to improve the management.

If you want, you can get single sleeved cable extensions, for your 24 pin connector, tape up the inside of your case around where the cable management holes should be and use a sharpie to draw a rough outline of the holes, then cut it out with the dremel. http://www.computerlounge.co.nz/uplo...ub_system2.jpg it should look even better than that with your psu
