    I shop at frozencpu since it takes 2-3 days to get my packages. And when they don't have what I want, I shop at case-mod;)

    still, if case-mod was near me, I would order from them but since it's very far (and that I have to pay customs...)...

    NEW UPDATES!!!

    well thought I wouldn't update my mods? wrong!;)
    so here's the mods I've done since last update... I know it's been a while now but I don't have a digi cam and I took those pics at a lan party last weekend.

    [​IMG]
    I've put thumb screws to hold my psu... I originally order them for my case but they didn't fit so...

    [​IMG]
    I took a pic of my case open but the uv ccfls attached.

    [​IMG]
    Here's what the other side of the front plexi;)

    [​IMG]
    so here's something pretty new! I've made my own lighted fan with 4 5mm uv leds. I also painted the blades with clear paint blue uv reactive (neon maxx) but it don't shoes well on that pic.
    I've wired it to the 5v line that use to light 2 3mm blue led in the center that annoyed me and that I got rid off

    [​IMG]
    here's the new keyboard leds and my new mouse leds:D

    [​IMG]
    here's my mouse with UV leds instead of the red ones

    [​IMG]
    here's my blue leds... on my ethernet card! didn't saw many that changed those...

    [​IMG]
    I've put some blue neon maxx paint in the case! lot of people wanted to see that... well here's it is.

    [​IMG]
    another shot

    [​IMG]
    again

    [​IMG]
    on that pic, I've painted my sleeves too and it gives this! as bright as the rounded ide uv reactive

    thx for you comments;)

    since college takes lot of my time and that I don't work much while I'm there, can't spend money/time freely on case mods...

    but soon I'll get 5 weeks off and I'll mod more;)

    Well that has to be one of the best etches i have seen here. Very well done. I must agree with everyone else about the ragged edge too. It looks really good. Nice to see an irregular window.

    I am thinking about doing a quick window now that i have a little time off from school.

    well the etch was design by a friend of Morphine and I thx him again! I found what I was exactly searching;)

    with a few more tweaking the project will be done... but with all the money that I've put on it... the faceplate really bothers me... just don't like it anymore... so it calls for the final mod I think;)

    and since I finish this thursday college... I'll get more time and more cash to put on it :D

    get into water cooling man, and get a bay res. that should add something new to the front of your case. and you can have yet another UV reactive part of your system

    so... here's my final update since the project is now done... well not totally done since no modded case is DONE but it's finished for now:D

    so let's start:

    here's the plexi cut, sanded, trimmed and ready for the run
    [​IMG]

    here's the metal sheet cut, trimmed, painted and ready to go. I've fixed my mo lcd on the sheet with selicon. the lcd itself was attached with screws to 2 wood pieces.
    [​IMG]

    front view of the metal sheet with lcd
    [​IMG]

    now... for hidding my cdrw, here what I'll use.
    [​IMG]

    cdrw faceplate done
    [​IMG]

    I've fixed the usb/audio module to the metal sheet with selicon;)
    [​IMG]

    so... after cleaning the dimmers and modding the switchs... now the installation:D

    so I installed the dimmers fisrt. back view
    [​IMG]

    dimmers installed front view
    [​IMG]

    time to install the switchs. back view (that shot was taken before I had to mod the switch... hopefully I tested before mounting everything)
    [​IMG]

    I've installed the fan and the fan grill. everything is installed with 1 screw to each corner;)

    after everything installed... I had to cut the front of the case to make everything fit... see the damage:D
    [​IMG]

    The worst thing of the whole project is to plug those dimmers... the wires are shorts because before the dimmers were places in a clear plexi... so that way I almost didn't saw the wires... but anyway... took me like 10 minutes to plug the dimmers and their leds...
    [​IMG]

    everything now installed... I had a bad time screwing the bottom right bolt... anyway behold the results!
    [​IMG]

    the final touch... installing the knobs;)
    [​IMG]

    and the last 2 shots;)
