Awesome club. I had a beige box I gave to a friend to get it the hell out of my house, lol.

I'm planning a exoskeleton type build. with non standard psu placement and lots of blue. Its going to sit above my workbench on a shelf and the "side" will face me. lots of lights and Lutro0 blue paracord. I have everything except a GPU ready for the build.

G'day guys,

Long time lurker, I don't follow OCN much but saw the Beigemodders Club and found my people! I've been doing beigemodding for many years - in addition to recycling old cases, I really like small, quiet, systems. I haven't had an ATX board since my Venice core Athlon 64. Here are a few pics, anyway:



This is my previous effort; the case takes ATX boards with the power supply sitting over the face of the motherboard, above the CPU. The cover is a single piece of steel enclosing 3 sides =P It was nice and cramped to work in, but pretty straight forward. I don't have many photos from the build process. This is the finished view from the front, I managed to retain the original front panel.



And a shot of the guts. There's a Phenom II X6 1090T in an MSI 890GXM board, along with 8GB RAM, a 128GB SSD and a 2TB spinner. A nice little Seasonic 430W PSU rounds out the build. Here you can see some of the mods I did to get it all to fit. Firstly, I cut an access hole in the motherboard tray for the CPU socket. The HDD cage has been removed and the 5 1/4" cage has been modified to attach the radiator for the Antec Kuhler 920 that cools the CPU. The bottom of the case has been cut open for the NZXT X60 radiator which cools the HD6950 with the help of a dwood bracket.

Incidentally, it was after this build that I discovered the flaw in Asetek's driver which meant that you can't control 2 AIOs in the one system. I believe they've since fixed that, but I moved on to full custom.



This is my current case, but it's /way/ too big for me. It might not quite fit the beigemod ideal; it started out life as a black Gigabyte Aurora 3d. My friend was throwing it out and I offered to make use of it. I removed all of the drive cages, did the motherboard tray flip, created a new aluminium front panel, relocated the PSU and made an aluminium mid tray that supports the new pump, SSD and HDD. Then I transplanted my old system [from above] into it, taking the opportunity to move up to an R9 290 and going full custom water. There are 2 280x60mm radiators, 4 Scythe AP-15 GTs [did I mention that I like a quiet PC?], an XSPC block each for the CPU and GPU, a little Phobya pump running off 5V and a small res.

I should mention that both this and the previous case sat on a plinth to give the fans some breathing room.

For my next step, after I get married in September, I plan to shift back to the previous case: the idea is to roll it forward to make the front panel the bottom. I plan to mount a radiator externally using the existing cutout in the base and duplicating that in the top. The PSU will move to the front panel and hide under a shroud with the SSD and HDD. We'll see how well I manage that, if and when I get to it.

Thanks again for the encouragement!

Man that looks radical and awesome! Do you have any more photos of before and after?!?
