any comments about the case?
Well, I'm not a Linkin Park fan, but it actually looks really nice!
if this was a tribute to the old linkin park stuff id be admiring it, but it looks more meteora/reanimation oriented... so im not all that appreoved
as far as modding goes it doesnt look too bad from what i can see, the pics arnet best quality, but all looks ok to me
Good job so far. I look forward to seeing how the mod plays out.
the window looks cool, keep it up...
do us a favor though and dont take any more pics with your cell phone
wath has linkin park to say about thous logos?
Update - Next Steps Made.. No Photos ((
Ok.. since my digital camera's port connecting to my pc via usb unsoldered from the board.. i dont have any pics.. But i will tell you what i did to my case.. i will post pictures as soon as i get money .. ;D
1 )Painted the chasis with CAR PAINT Mirror effect accomplished
2)Cut two windows on the top of the case ( surrounding the two exchaust fan holes ) .. and put a black plexi ( nice effect with blue & red cold cathodes )
3) Installed case feet
Next steps to do..
1 ) Find a nice mesh for the front and paint it Bronze ( kinda street effect ) and then paint with a black spray : "LP"
2) Buy a new mobo ( preferably Gigabyte's latest )
3) Buy a new VGA card.. probably ati radeon 9600 .. ( too expensive prices in my country for an 9800 pro /xt x800 e.t.c .. approx. $550
So.. these are some of the steps
I have a very nice LP font if you want it to help in any way with your excellent project.
Thanks for your comments dude! Anyhelp is welcome..
can you send me the font via email? email@example.com
Ok guys.. first of all sorry about the image size and quality.. it's the only way i can show you how my project goes on.. More updates tommorow as i am going to buy the black plexi ( i am going to install it on top )
Here is my NOT FINISHED mouse ( i was just testing ) I 've just bought a wireless ( optical mouse ) trust kit for 10 $ free huh? The mouse and keyboard will be painted in Silver , Bronze and Black to give a Rusty "STREET" look and "LP" will be painted both on mouse and keyboard to fit the case's theme
do you think it would be a nice and unique idea to make holes on the first plexi ? to make a fan controller?
Excuse my english
good job. Although i did vote the bit-tech logo I like LP looks good
Um.. image quality aside I don't see much modding.
I have 2 LP cds and neither of them have much in terms of a theme. Meteora has a bit of artwork but generally they're pretty boring.
UPDATE ( TOP PLEXI INSTALLED ) + Some more pictures
First of all sorry for the image quality..
Here are some pictures of what i've been doing the last 2 days.
-I painted again the chasis with a glowy black spray
-Installed black plexi on top of the case
-Accidently Broke 2 Blue Cold Cathodes!!
-Buy an other Cold Cathode
-Ordered a Slot Drive Dvd ( i will paint it black )
-i might make a fan controller on top of the case , on the first black plexi( tell me what ya think )
P.S. I run out of ideas.. any ideas are acceptable
well even though i dont like the band...at all, i still think you did a good job on the case. more and better pics are in order
Yeah, it's hard to get a good idea for what the case really looks like because the quality of the pics is so questionable. But from what I can see, I'd actually say don't do too much more to it. You've got a really nice solid theme here, and it just "feels" complete to me. Too much more and you're going to start cluttering it up - you'll lose the blatant, simple, solid presence of the LP logos.
Go borrow a digicam from someone!
Great Band, Great case!!! Looks sweet, man. Biggest thing to remember, less is sometimes more...find a stopping point and move on to your next mod! Or how bout a desk to put it on, and your monitor, and customized desktop and sounds to match
I like LP alot . And I definetely like the case mod work you did . Its not alot of mods like most that are posted, but its well done and looks good. Don't let anyone get you down about the case.
This one gives me more ambition to finally get back to modding my gamebox.
Are there going too be any more updates on this one? Looks just so good...
EDIT: Dumb question... Looked at your sig...
The case is finished.. I will post some pictures 2morrow
