awsome... unobtrusive when off and pimping when on.
this is the project that got me seriously into modding. For me, it can't be topped.
Yup same here.
You may want to actually READ the article before posting questions like this. He shows exactly how he did it. It even has pictures showing how he applied the tint, and even show the kind he used.
*EDIT* I can't believe I commented on a post made in 2002.....Maybe I should READ the whole thread before commenting
*2nd Edit* Awsome mod tbh. Still holds it's own by todays standards. It would be interesting to see maybe a SFF version of this case
STILL one of the best out there. Sometimes it's nice to reflect on the fact that Bit-Techers STILL OWN the competition with crap made 4 years ago.
One of the few quintessential mods that sits on my top-of-the-top list, an inspiration that fits alongside Orac, Vesper-Deco, and Ammo-PC. Vesper got me into modding, Orac showed me how original it could get, and macroblack was just what happens when you truly pimp a computer.
wow, that realy was a blast from the past.
Thats one of the best ever cases, I read somewhere once he was offerd £5,000 for the case, dunno if its true or not tho seems a little steep tbh. This is what got me on bit-tech.
Definitly one of the best.
3 mods that i love totally. This is one, orac is another and metaversa by Nexxo is the third.
Still find inspiriation from those three, attention to detail and plain care and love
Well done on the case my freind it looks stunning, also you beat me to it lol, we had done some tinting to a freinds rig before it looked really good,
but i am just about to start on a perspex mod now and theres some great ideas there for me to follow on,
but i just love the little things in the mod that make this great such as the custom fan bus that is just awsome.
But very well done you really are a great asset to the modding communinty with the ideas in this.
When I built my first computer from scratch, I was searching for a new case. A friend of mine said, "Wouldn't it be cool to have a case with a window or one that was completely clear?!" So I started searching for clear cases. About the 3rd link in my search was Macro Black.
I never even knew case modding existed until then. But once I saw that I knew I had to mod someting. I joined Bit and never looked back. Man that case ended up making me spend a lot of money.
that mod was really great...
After 4 year....
So beautifull, almost makes me cry
I absolutely like it. Is a log existing there?
It's on the main site Claas
I knew that 'log' but i thought there's existing one of every step-by-step development, you know?
How do you do the Power/HDD LED thingy (first blue then red , pretty interesting )
(can't open the link http://www.bit-tech.net/article/58/ ) ...where I can find something about this?
Bookmark the Wayback Machine, comes in handy.
There's also a thread in this forum just on that mod.
I was rereading this for probably the 10th time in the last 5 years, and the first few pages of the thread truly amused me. Flashy. This case was considered FLASHY in it's day. Has modding changed that much in 5 years? At the time, I considered it cutting edge design, with a real sense of refinement. Having had time to reflect on it, I can sum it up in one word, classy. I've seen literally thousands of cases since Macro Black first appeared, and it is still my all time favorite. But FLASHY???
I am curious though, Macroman. Is it still your main rig? Does it get used at all?
Thank you, I am glad that you appreciate the case. The "MacroBlack" concept was intended to instill an interest in modding to a wider audience rather than be an everyday workhorse. To that end it was extremely successful. Nowdays it sleeps peacefully in a box in the attic.
I know i know.. thread revival.. considering selling macro black since she's (it?) living in the attic now?
