So this here is my first every mod, so don't be overly critical! But please feel free to give some advice/suggestions.

What I will be doing is a ASUS themed mod loosely based off the P6T motherboard (mainly the color scheme of blue and silver).

Here is what I have so far to stick in this puppy/what I'm using.

Case: Thermaltake WingRS 201

Motherboard: ASUS P6T
CPU: None (as of now)
GPU: 2x Sapphire 5770
PSU: None
RAM: 6gb Mushkin

Basically this is a budget mod. Since it is my first one, I will not be investing too much money into. Mostly because I'm sure I will screw up somewhere. I will be upgrading the CPU of my sigrig (most likely to a 960), so the 920 will be going back into it. I am not sure if I will use the PSU from my sigrig yet after I upgrade it, since the cable management was terrible in this case, so I will probably use a modular one. I also plan on eventually getting some kingston hyperx ram to go with the color scheme. I only plan on getting the actual case modding/painting done by the end of April (which I think is very practical), actually having it up and running in a timely manner is not a concern, possibly by the end of May, but will most likely be sooner.

Here is a VERY rough idea/layout of what is to come over the next week or so.



I will be cutting up the right/access panel first and prepping it to be fixed with a window/cathodes.

Here is the case just prior to cutting.



First cut.


Second cut.


Prepping the "ASUS" template I made last night.


And the trace...


Not too shabby. I will be cleaning it up/rounding out the curves tomorrow or Friday.


Without the tape.


And I went ahead and slapped the panel back on the case to take a gander at what it will roughly look like!


This took me approximately 2 1/2 hours taking my time/with breaks. Didn't want to burn myself out with the tedious cutting...plus my package came in...I'm about to setup and leak test my first watercooling setup for my sigrig

Thanks! I will actually be painting the interior silver. I will be getting some blue anodized screws for the interior of the case as well as getting some blue metallic 120mm fans (if I have to, I will paint them myself, but I would prefer to buy those). I will be have the exterior of the case follow the blue/silver checkered design of the ASUS logo on the P6T board.


Toyed with the idea of black, but it just seems to be overdone and I don't think it will compliment the exterior very well.
