How far is your Project along? Have you thought about making a thread?

I'll get a build log up as soon as I can. I'm still a little new to OCN, what forum would be best for that?

I think the Case Mod Work Logs forum would be the place. Can't wait to see you get started! thumb.gif

Does this qualify as true beige?

It's an old dell from about 1998 I believe, correct me if I'm wrong there.
If you look closely you can see that the front is actually starting to turn a yellowish colour, when I pulled the stickers off it was clean white underneath though. thumb.gif



I got hold of it about 3 years ago, noticed it was an ancient Dell Pentium 3 and it ended up just sitting in the garden shed next to the lawnmower ever since! biggrin.gif

Anyhow after seeing this thread I was inspired to drag (what's left) of it out and see what I can do with it .

Will set up a thread shortly on the mods I've got planned, it's going to take a while as the motherboard standoffs will have to be removed and bolts installed in their place the hold a standard atx board. (Old dells have some strange fittings/weird form factors in them...)
The old one is pretty much useless to me so I'll just replace the whole thing with an old Pentium 4 or maybe even a dual core board and processor.

Also want to repaint the case and add extra fans (the current set up only allows for two tiny fans, so I'll cut into the top of the case and install a few more! smile.gif


I still have no idea why so many 90's computers were coloured beige, it's a hideous colour! biggrin.gif


Anyhow, so how do I join the group? biggrin.gif

Yeah, reverse mod is what I'd like to do. I've thought of starting with a nice modern case like a Phanteks Enthoo and making it look retro-ugly on the outside. It can stay the same on the inside.

I had one of those back in the day. It's a Dell Dimension XPS. Mine had a slot-mounted Pentium 3. It was my first computer, and a total piece of crap. The stock cooling was so bad that it needed upgrading just to keep the machine from crashing on hot days. It made me realize just how crummy pre-built computers are. I've never owned another pre-built desktop since.

There's a lot you can do with that, I've always loved cases that aren't symmetrical.
