Default "600 BULLET" Antec Case Mod

I got swamped, so I didn't have much time for taking photos before shipping it out today.


The exterior finish is a custom mix of Silver Metallic and Gloss Black PPG automotive paint. I absolutely love how this color came out. I would consider painting a car this color... We imagined it on a `68 - `72, Chevelle, Malibu, Nova, or GTO. This case mod was inspired by my love for Hot Rods if you couldn't tell...lol


360 Turbine style front intake was made from 3/4" thick aluminum. The design was inspired by the "Nautilus" Overkill 120mm fan grill.


Each of the 120mm Turbine Fans is 2000 rpm, 79.4 cfm @ 30 dBA.




The vented side panel was cnc milled from 3/16" thick billet aluminum. "Antec - Believe it" logo is engraved in the surface.




The Antec 600's smoked acrylic moon-roof was replaced by this vented billet panel.


The honeycomb grill was also custom painted. A remote 3-speed switch is mounted in the rear of the chassis that lets you balance the 200mm fan's performance. You can also switch off the Blue LEDs.


120mm Turbine fan's chrome plated prop-spinners.

Has a self propelled look to it. I can imagine it blowing itself right across the table.
