Don't know where you live, but I know people who got some for free just in a dump, most of the times in a good shape.
Or you could ask public institutions like schools or college (I got one from an informatic school), or even private companies; depending on their policy, they either dump their old computers, leaving them for free if asked, or they might have to burn the to the ground in case of the ABS plastic could've kept confidential banking informations...

will make your build a lot more easier...oh and the aio solution can easily go into the front or top with some tweaking..try getting a good deal on a h80 or 2 h60's....then try the aio mod by shorting the tubes so they fit better...you can even go bonkers and do a single dual loop for cpu gpu cooling....just some ideas im throwing your way...kudos on this mod..very cool dude

Oh I could try that, i already have an Antec 620 that i could mod.

Yeah a modular SFX power supply would free up a ton of space and tidy things up. I didn't think about it, but yeah I could shorten the cables.

Made some more progress on mine! thumb.gif
Got a front cover fixed up to cover the massive hole where the CD drives fit in.
Just looked back at some old pics of the case, I think it has come a long way since I pulled it out of the dumpster biggrin.gif

I didn't know this thread existed... I put some watercooling in an eMachines T1801 a couple months ago. Never ran it because I don't have a CPU for it, but I keep it out for display. I can get some better pictures of it if someone wants to see it better. The outside of the case is entirely stock.

New member here! I've been out of modding for quite a while, but I've recently been re-bitten by the modding bug and, since my old modding forum of choice is all but dead, I've found my way here.

Part of what triggered my mod itch was coming across my old project when cleaning out the basement, and since it qualifies as a beigemod, I figured I'd share it. Here's Blue Matrix

I'm not quite sure how long ago I made this - I know it was some time around the 2nd Matrix movie, so maybe 2003-4, but the original case is much, much older. I don't have any "before" pictures - this was long enough ago that I didn't yet own a digital camera - but it was an abandoned server that was sitting in a closet at work. I don't know what the server once did, but it did it running an AMD clone of a 386.

The dremel work on the window cuts were a bit sloppy, and I never got around to doing anything with the original front panel. I had the panel's reset button connected to power - the original power switch was for the blue liquid neon light you can see hanging at the top of the lower window. The lower portion of the front had a bunch of diagonal grooves that I (poorly) filled with body putty before cutting the hole for the fan. The fan filter was an add-on as well.




The paint is all rattle-can - black metal-flake with bright blue for the lettering. For the letters, i started by using a laser printer to print the pattern onto plastic overhead projector transparencies, then used an Xacto knife to cut them into stencils. I used spray adhesive to stick the stencils to the case, then peeled them off right after spraying. I also disassembled the optical drives and painted the drive faces as well



I used this case for a few years, then switched to something boring, generic, and way easier to haul to a LAN party.

I'm still in the planning stage for my new project, but I'm planning a "sleeper" mod, putting modern guts into a Pentium 2-era IBM desktop. I'm going to keep the outside appearance almost completely stock, but with some lighting effects once I turn it on.

Welcome to the group smile.gif I really like the paint job.

Quotes taken out of context and still sounds good. wink.gif

“It’s worse.”

Wow! You cut all those symbols out of an acetate sheet? That's incredible. It must have taken a lot of time and patience. Nice work. thumb.gif
