hi everyone, im from the philippines and we do have a bunch of modders here too. from overclocking to case modding and some really creative ones too. i made some test cases and since im use to working on cars, i tried to get my hand into this case modding. ive been into computers since forever anyway! so heres my case its a basic atx that was painted black, personnaly i dont like black on cases coz it doesnt show the fine lines or details of the case. but thats just me so black themed case lover dont hate me! just keep in mind pls when reading this that im from the philippines, and my resources for parts are somewhat limited. i cant even order from the web if i wanted too (and believe me i do!) so i tried to use what we have here only. some may be cheap but believe me i did try to search for things! almost everyday after school! sorry wasnt able to get stock shots of the case! this is the front bezel. i do have a case already for my p4 but im builing this athlon for myself. so i picked out a case that is simple but has enough space to intgrate my old palm pilot in it. im gonna be bondoing that later to make it flat and in place. ill be using programs for the palm to be integrated to the computer. and as a lcd too hehe. cant order one remember? the palm has been modified to charge a couple of nimh when the computer is powered up to keep it from erasing its memory. plus as an organizer when the comps off main theme of this comp is custom truckin inspired! so its gonna be a pearl green metalic yellow case w nothing but polished aluminum accents! i bought a long sheet of aluminum just waiting to be polished and cut to whatever i could think off! this is for the acrylic window bezel by the way. window jigged out and borders tested. needs trimming. i wanted some sort of aluminum front bezel accents so i was planning on cutting some flat ones and laying it on there but i remebered that i saw something interesting the last time i went to the hardware store to check for "modding treasures" and i picked up these 3. these are drawer handles the rectangle one is turned up side down and fitted w toggle switches. the round ones were also drilled and will be holding the power and reset buttons. that thing in the middle is the button. ill be gluing some green acrylic to it to keep the acrylic theme to the front too. all will soon backlighted w leds. i decided to watercool my rig so i bored out this hole on top of the case for the small rad ill be putting. its a messy hole i know but ill still be covering that w a bezel so i didnt waste to much time in it. this is the bezel that ill be placing on top of it. ill be making another one for the top mounted oval reservoir ill be picking up. its gonna be a cheap watercooling system though so dont expect much. just green so i can have some plus points during competitions. you can aslo see my cheap dremel. stupid thing blew on me while i was making that hole! so i wasnt able to finish it yet! im painting the case right now so ill post some pics bout that as soon as im done. future planse are etchings, some more aluminum work (but not overly done..dont wanna overdo the case) some leds on the lower holes of the bezel to give it some faint glow. lights inside and on bottom and hmmm..dont really know yet! oh and dont worry, im stealthing the drives! dont be rough on me now! im new at case modding...now if it was cars..hehe! oh and sorry for the poor pics. only have a camera fone!
