Hey, quite an interesting idea! 'The Cool Box'
What sort of air flow do you get through it though?
some more pics
making holes in it ( i dont have a dremel ) my father sold it
so i need to do it this way
more pics updates soon
Yay! making holes in stuff is fun isn't it!?
Good work with your project so far:
hmm , here are new pics of a new start with the PSU , i found out this one is a little beter then the first one.
the only thing i need to do now is paint it , and then its almost done
so here are the pics
srry for the bad dremelwork , but this is the first time i worked with a dremel
Hey, we all got to learn somehow. Better to get some experience on something you can replace, than on your side panel for instance.
yeah , but i think its not so bad for the first try
For a first try you did pretty good.
Next tme cover the area you are cutting with masking tape to protect the surface from accidental scratches. This is really important if you are cutting something you don't want to repaint.
Keep up the good work.
thx , and thx for the tip
so here a little preview of how its gonna be.
( but then with the good fans and stuff )
well, from one modding noob to another, lookin pretty good. took me until the end of the third page to realize why the front panel looked so freakin familiar, i've got almost the same case, doh! anyway, like the color scheme and all that. i'm personally more of a fan of spiral wrap myself, but the rounded cables are good. anyway, for a few interesting ideas, check out my main pc sig. i kinda took a different approach with the front. btw, you have any "before" shots of the case front in its beige state before you started painting or could point some out to me? thanks.
Got to say this has come a long way and turned into a really nice case, see if you can pursued your parents to let you paint the drives, it would really finish off the look.
nice case you have.
this is a pic before painting
some more pics , its almost done , i am only waiting for my fangrill's
here are the pics
hope you like it
the fans in it
pics in case
the jungle of wires
and the other pics
yep going nice
nice looking good but one thing and i don't mean to be an jack*** about it but maybe use smaller wire piping (the gray tubing)
It looks really good. I remember my first mod. I think I bit off more than I could chew, but it turned out ok. Anyways, what is going in the cooling PSU box? just the fans? The way I'm thinking, it's one intake, 2 exhaust, which is perfect. What about the fan on the side panel? Will that interfere with the fan on the PSU?
You're a genius kid- you just helped me figure out how I'm going to mount the power supply in my Vapochill rig.
For those not in the know- the stock Vapochill mounts the PSU over the evaporator head, which is useless if you're trying to p1mp the mad sub-zero cooling system.
I very much like the idea of the thick grey "conduit" going down the drive bays.
What seems to be the way to go is mod the hell out of your current case until it is overmodded and crappy looking. Then buy a new case and go at it with a theme.
I wish my first mod was that good and compleat ,dam fine work for you first go
So mod it to death then start again with a whole head full of ideas + experiance
