So I got inspired by the upcoming release of BF3 and decided to update my good ol' modded Antec 902 case to a new HAF X.

Here is a video of some mods I did to my 902;

CASE PAINT
This is what I was thinking of doing(The cammo image I copied from the net looks like it has some sort of texture behind it which makes it look like carbon fiber. I thought that might be cool too. First wrap each side panel in 3M carbon fiber then paint the camo over top. Just an idea. And of course I would not wrap the front or top for ventilation.

I have the Asus Sabertooth x58 mobo and I'm going to sleeve my cables with this;

CARBON FIBER WRAP
I'm also thinking of covering the parts of the mobo tray that would be exposed after the mobo is in place with the carbon fiber just to make it look clean. Also might cover the plastic drive bay mounting hardware, hard drive trays at the bottom, plastic power supply wire shield, air duct for the video cards and my Gigabyte 560Ti plastic fan cover.

STEALTH DRIVE MOD
Also looking at doing the stealh drive mod.

LIGHTING
I was thinking of putting a white cathode on a toggle switch and red leds on a sound activated switch that would light up when explosions and sound is happening. Might be a little overkill but we'll see.

Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions please let me know. Also if anyone knows of any systems that look kind of like this please post a link.

Thanks!

Sounds awesome. Cannot wait to see the log. While I am not a huge fan of the 902, those sketches look fantastic. You might convert me...

Another way to do the camo is to get those little rubber mats that keep your carpet from sliding (its like a checkered pattern) and cut random shapes out of those.

But that is more for digital camo. I see you are going for the traditional type

Does anyone recommend a video or thread on "How to remove a 24,8 or 6 pin FEMALE connector pin".

I bought a 24pin cable extension and I'm having some trouble removing the pin from the female connector side.

Is it the same two pronged tool as it is for the male side? I'm still searching threads and youtube for info but they all show the male connector pin removal and not the female. I figured I could swap out my power supply while keeping the same look or swap my look and not my power supply. I don't know, just thought it might be a good idea.

Your 902 Makes me want to buy it from you.

If you are serious send me a pm or email and maybe we can try to work something out.


Anyone have any suggestions about removing the pins from the female side of the 24, 8 and 6 pin extensions? I'd like to add some para cord sleeves to the Kobra SS extensions.

I am serious, but I'd have to trade

I have my P180 Here, which could possibly lead you to another mod project, and an MSI 880GM-E41 Motherboard that just needs a BIOS File (easy to find). I got that board Really far with my CPU. 1.53V's Stable with a small 80MM 1800 RPM Cooling them off

Never peaked 40C for VRM's.

If you use a low pass crossover on the input, itll only go off with lower pitched sounds, especially if you have a subwoofer.

Sorry thanks for the offer but I'm trying to clear some old parts out to make some room. I think I may hack it up and use it for scrap parts. or maybe just take the fans out and chuck it. If you want it stripped you can have it(if you cover shipping)
