Thanks! I've popped into your thread a couple times, but haven't had a chance to properly read through it. Hopefully some time soon. smile.gif

Not a bad idea. I still have my Dell 3000 around and maybe I could mod that case instead of paying for a new one when I build my NAS.

Every time I walk into my closet and see my 2400 cases, I think of this.

I cannot read all 13 pages right now, but I did read the posts you made in the pictures. I never considered doing case modding, but this sure is inspiring! I threw away 2 or 3 cases that could have been modded or at least been cut up for parts.

I wish I had more time to do things like this. Does anyone have a cure to make sleep a non-requirement, and that will keep me mentally sharp?

Did I see you offer this case to someone who wanted to trade for a case in the marketplace?

Nice recycling project. It inspires me to do something about my old HP case that's currently sitting around as an unused HTPC in my bedroom. It will be getting new parts eventually and after seeing these mods maybe getting a full makeover.

Thanks. I don't think I ever offered to trade it. There's a good bit of money in the paint alone.

Thanks.

Funnily enough, though, I actually bought this case for this mod. It's a pretty neat little case, in my opinion.

Just thought I'd bump this and mention that I'm considering moving my main system back into this case. More to come on that, hopefully.

Edit: 'Tis not happening. But I have it set up as a HTPC, which I'm happy with. Might have to throw a Blu-Ray drive in it, though.



Gotta decide on a few watercooling-related things, but the plan is to have the radiator separately, since a RX360 clearly is a bit big for this case.
