    If you need PC70 mods, then panic not. I shall be doing stuff to my own PC70 very soon.

    I have a review up at: http://www.philspcmods.com/reviews/llpc70 and will be finishing it over the next few days.

    The chopping tools are likely to come out at the weekend, so there'll be some more info then :)

    ...............now thats just asking for it!!!!!! :D :D

    .....mind you IMHO windows dont look right on alu cases - maybe just cause I like the original finish - who knows....
    Looking at water cooling so I might not mod mine much if I ever get one, just the mirrored anodised finish........:D:D

    Pretty similar to yours by the sound of it.

    First up, replace the LEDs with blue ones. Next, hack a hole in the PSU bay to fit the Enermax supply. Then cut out the rear exhaust grills to improve air flow. I'll also be doing stealth drive mods for the CD drive, and will try to figure something out for the floppy drive as well.

    After that I'll need to take a breather for a while to get some more money together. Then I'll be setting up some water cooling goodness.

    I was originally planning to do it all in a YY Cube, but it looked like I might have been a bit tight for space. The PC70 is a beast of a case though, so I really can't see space being an issue. Specially with the lower HDD caddy out of the way :)

    ......pretty similar to what I plan to do aswell...........

    Is there enough room above the PSU to fit a radiator do you recon?

    Also with a MOBO inside would there be sufficiet room down at the front for a resevoir aswell as the HDD caddy? - I have three HDs that'd be in it and I'd rather not have to sell one or to have them so tightly squashed in if possible...........might have to end up having one in a 5.25" bay I guess.

    Anyway I wasn't going to bother having the floppy visble on the outside...........depending on the HDs I was thinking of trying to mount it backwards so the opening was on the inside so I could use it by just taking the side (only time I ever use it is to install windows!!) off but I havent even seen the case so who knows - might be cabling/power problems I cant overcome.
    As for the CDs, stealthy all the way - probably just held on with some double sided tape or something and a spacer above the button so that tapping the right spot will open it.....I'd quite like to have a big blue VFD mounted in the top two drives but I'd probably leave that for a while (bit pricey).............
    Should hopefully be able to buy this bad boy in the middle of august some time but it depends on me getting a job when I get back from Uni.............no money = no case ~my sole motivation!!!!!! :D:D

    Its quite cool you guys doing first so at least you could give us a few pointers when my time comes..........:)

    Oh, I wouldn't do that if I were you. I'm nowhere near as good at this stuff as you are, and if it wasn't for reading your review on the PC70, I might not have bought one :)

    You also seem to have good relationships with a few suppliers, so can get your hands on stuff to try out. I'm not fortunate enough to be in that position, so if I can't afford to buy it, it doesn't get done :(

    Ya never know though, one day, we might be look at www.phils-bit-tech-mods.com :D:D:D
