I got the opportunity to make a deceptive sleeper beige mod, as I can get two old Pentium 4 Powered cases on my workplace. Here are the pictures of the smaller one, on which I don't think I'll be able to put a Strix 980 in it due to length issues (287mm-ish from the case I guess)...





Don't even know if I'm going to mod it as it would need a lot of mods (an ATX mount, remove the 5,25 Bays because of the psu, make new holes on the base to let the gpu breath, put a 92mm exhaust fan if possible and wash it), I've never done it before...

But hey, all your beige mods are AWESOME, and I really like the sleeper mod idea...

[edit]
The case is still at school actually, I didn't have time to get it home yet... I can also get a bigger mAtx case from the 2000s, which clearly is beige, easier to work with and even got a washed out "Intel Inside" badge ?

Hey H! That looks like a very challenging case! But as we've said before, half the fun of a Beigemod is, you don't lose anything if you screw it up. ;-)

Can't wait to see what you think up for those two.

very interesting layout with the PSU stacked on the mobo like that. dont even know how you would get a full-sized video card in there... hope you're good at custom cables thumb.gif

Here's what I'm currently working on: Project Edith

@RoostrC0gburn I love your Edith project! That's actually what made me want to transform an old beige case into a sleeper mod!

About that case I could get, I've NO modding experience at all. The most technical thing I've done in my life is probably building my own pc some years ago... But I know I can be consencious and patient...

The parts I would put in it would be the ones in my actual gaming rig :
- z87 mini-itx with a xeon e3 1231 v3
- SeaSonic G550 or V750 Corsair PSU
- maybe my NH-U12S cpu cooler, as it seems the "height" is fine
- an ASUS GTX 980 Strix, which may not fit for 1 or 2 mm ; I could swap it for the EVGA SSC 980 my brother has...
- two 850 evo SSD...

I would fit the PSU on the top of the case if I can make the cuts and holes to fix it. I would remove at least one 5'25" readers, as they eat a lot of space for the PSU or cable management (gotta find some beige cache if I remove them). I might not have to remove the floppy driver biggrin.gif. I would have to modify the back of the case, to put a 92mm or 120mm fan for extraction. I would definitely make two 120mm holes on the ground for intake (filtered with demciflex filters?)... and maybe do the same thing on the front of the case (there already is a 92mm fan position though).

Still, will have to get the case back home. And find time rolleyes.gif

How about giving this one a shot wink.gif

I don't know if i would be able to do it but i will def try it once.
I might add several 120mm fans in that and also change the psu position from top to bottom




and put all of them in it biggrin.gif
