This is my first real mod that I have done. My only past experience is cutting out fan grills and the fun stuff in machine shop class. I lack most of the tools I would want (I hate using my dad's stuff). Luckly for me I have access to a full size mill, and I plan to use it. To start: I bought this case from SVC for $50 bucks shipped. It is 21"x7.25"x15.5" (HxWxD) It is slightly crammed. I went threw many ideas and settled on air cooling. I have plenty of room for fans. So after taking the sides and bezel out, I decided to start a layout using free USPS envelopes (you can get free boxes too!). The templates are roughly the right size. First the front. I decided on 3 120mm fans for intake. The front cover will also hold 2 bulgin switches, a 3 fan controller (one for intake, one for 2 80mm in the back, one for blowhole) and a stealthed dvd drive. The front will be made from black acrylic. Colors are Black and Orange and some chrome mixed in. (that may change) Here is a pic of the front, and a screen shot of the design in autocad. Blue lines are mainly just outlines. Red is where I will cut. Then I moved to the top. All that will be done here is add case handles from mnpctech and a blowhole. Since I want this mod to be simple, with function over looks, It will be a simple hole, some uchannel, and a chrome fan grill. Now blowhole kit for me (plus I can save 70 bucks then). I will just post the layout on the actual case, you can imagine a 120mm blowhole. Also add in the other case handle (seems I forgot to take a pic of this) The back will pretty much stay the same. I thought about moving the PSU to the top, but the case handles may be in the way (only was to tell is once I have the case handles on) I may move psu to the bottom and move the mobo tray up some, but again, that is a ton of work, and I want this case ready ASAP. I have to cut holes for 2 80mm since it only fits 1 right now. Anyways time to show what I have done. I finally have gotten the case all taken apart. That was a ton of rivets, but I think it was worth it. Notice the bottom is pretty scratched, I should have kept the case feet on. Good thing I will sand that. Also I took this after modding the divider plate. I then started work on the divider plate that holds the psu and 5.25 bays. I had to do this because it would cover the top fan. Wouldn't have been that bad but I don't have metal blades for my jigsaw and I couldn't do it safely with my dremel. Out came the tin snips. I managed only to cut my thumb (In machine shop 2 years ago, I didn't listen to my teacher about putting gloves on and I sliced open my wrist). If you can imagine, cutting the steel was a pain in the ass. And in the the hand. I still have to clean up the cut with a sander or grinder, but that is for another day (I am tired, plus LANparty soon with some friends). I also modded something else for another project I am halfassedly working on. Time for some pics. That is all for today. I have come back to the computer to think of some designs, like what to do with the side panels (which are safe in the box). I could do window, or I could foam them and paint a logo on it. (I really liked the fighter plane pc, and the red baron was looking good, same with fire fighter) It may be awhile till my next update. Next free day besides tomorrow is next sunday. Oh the joys of school sports. If you have any questions, comments, or concerns, you can PM me here or you can get me on aim: sparkyftw Also I forgot to add my modding buddy. He is just over a year old. His name is Jesse, and he is a pure breed black lab that we got for free.
