As it stands now, I have to agree with Bruce (and with your sig wink.gif ) that this is pretty much a ghetto-mod as it stands currently.

Any way we can see some "before" photos to understand how much work you've done on that case? Is it a work in progress or is it pretty much staying like this for a while? What do you have in mind for it? I think with some additional work and beautification, it could become an honorary beigemod or a budget mod that we'd be interested in.

EDIT: The more I look at the features of that case, the undersized exhaust fan grill and the 5.25 drive cage, the more convinced I am that the original case meets our criteria. I'd just need some confirmation that you're going to "finish out" the case.

Also could you strip it down a bit more so we can see how it's put together?

As requested...






There's on average 10mm space between the MB tray and side panel. I might have to remove the reinforcement ribs on the panel.


If I'm going to put a window in it I need to take out that metal.


I'm off to the hardware store now to pickup some stuff. Then I'll come back and start a log.

Okay, yeah I see now some of the changes you made:

  • Removed 3.5" drive cage to fit radiator
  • Removed several interior braces
  • Painted interior
  • Moved power and reset to top of case (?)
  • Added water cooling setup to side of 5.25" drive cage.
  • Cut fan hole for PSU at the top
Anything else?

And yes, based on how that case started, and the work you have done so far, I think that's a legit work in progress.

What tools do you have available for modding? If you plan on leaving the reservoir and pump there, you have a couple of options to be able to put the side-panel back on. You could cut a window large enough for those to fit through, or you could make a "bumpout" out of metal or something to cover it.

Welcome to the group!

You should start a mod log, post those pictures in chronological order, describe briefly what you have done so far, and what you plan to do. I'd be very interested in following your progress. redface.gif
