My First Custom Case
 
So I've decided to use an old case and mod it! Thought it would be a good option to save some $$$ ... after all it's costing me as much hahaha, but at least I'm having a blast doing it and learning new stuff! :haha:

Here is what the almost final look is! The side panel is in the garage, waiting for the glue to cure, same with front panel.

I've even managed to paint my nails silver, good times! :thumb:

Mind using [IMG] tags next time or click the Image button? Don't like clicking links to see pictures :bleh:

But yeah good job, hopefully you can stuff your hardware in there.

Just for you :thumb:

Update : Front panel now fully assembled! Hard to see but power button and panels are silver, not white or beige.

Some of the older cases, when modded are actually quite nice and convenient! AD2L, you should replace that plastic power button with a metal one, and upgrade the LEDs. It would look amazing with a little bling!

I think I had one of those cases, or something very similar. Same bezel shape for sure.

Pretty sure it housed my P3 450 system.

I'm guessing that mess part is for a 120mm fan?

Yes sir! :clap:

gingerbee May 16, 2009 09:54 AM

had one too

btw bojangles, the picture doesn't do that paint effect justice, it looks very WoW!! in person.

can almost see myself in it.

but I agree those LEDs are quite boring looking :blarg: its just they are attached there with hot glue, and I don't feel like ripping the whole thing apart.
