    Hey, quite an interesting idea! 'The Cool Box' :D
    What sort of air flow do you get through it though?

    Hey, we all got to learn somehow. Better to get some experience on something you can replace, than on your side panel for instance.

    Yep.

    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.

    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 work :thumb:

    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?

    Eureka!

    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.

    Thanks man! :)

    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.
