    Hate to burst your bubble but:

    Also your photography is soo bad that you can't even tell what the pictures are of; lastly I diddn't even see any significant mods on that case.

    Now that that is all out of the way...I'm sure it is a very nice mod. :hehe:

    Welcome to Bit -Tech, aws Langer said, you should try to hold the cam a bit more steady, and more light, and when you got some modding pics post them on this site, not as a link, and then the admin won't have a problem with ya

    Welcome to the forums, pumagt500! :clap: Although I eagerly look forward to your mod, the other guys here are right: you have to post pics (not links to pics) and you have to be able to show some modding in progress. Just showing case disassembly on its own is not enough.

    Usually it is best to wait with posting a project log until you are already some way into it, so you have something to show off.

    Also quality of pics counts --light your indoor shots properly, make sure the shot is focussed and use a tripod/support to prevent camera shake/blur. No point in trying to show off a spectacular job with poor pictures.

    What size bit do you recomend for drilling the holes for the mobo standoffs? I gotta tap them too. Or I could buy a mobo tray and rivit it over the old one. what do you think? Has n e one ever put a car radio in a caomputer cd bay. I have a open bay I wont use in this comp. I think it would be awsome especialty at lan partys.

    I have moved this to Modding for the reasons outlined above.

    PM myself or another moderator when you are ready to turn this into a full and proper project log.

    Closer view. You can see the keylock that was located all the way too the left and is now gonna be the second too the right. The two left side holes will be filled today.

    Ill get this is I can take off the voice control portion. Does anyone know if thats possible to bypass the PCI plate stuff in the back and the voice controll box?
    Kinda sucks that the only place around here toget electronic parts is the ratshack. I guess Ill have to take a trip tommrow and spend $600 on two rocker switches and some heat shrink tube.

    Judging by the pics, and from my past experience with the "voice activated whatchamathinger" aka sound activated circuit so itll blink to the taps of your hard drive, it should have either an on/off switch, or you could adjust the sensitivity up all the way so if theres something moving in a 20ft radius itll be blink, which will give you a conastant light, considering itll be in a pc case.
