My System Specs

Default Anyone know any good case modding sites?

I've got a big project I'm working on right now with a new case for my soon i7 build; I'm having trouble finding good resources for a few things.

I already plan to order a sleeving kit from murdermod (just for the hell of it lol)

But things I really need are cdrom aluminum bezel kits and other various parts; a lot of the structural stuff I'll be doing myself but I still would like a few good websites to pull idea's from and buy various modding parts.

Best site I've been to. It isn't update often but the existing articles can be very useful.

I miss Bigfoot. My very first mod was a homebrew fan controller. I think I still have it somewhere. I'm pretty sure they pieced it together from scrap laying around. lol

True.. I bought some of my first water cooling stuff from Bigfoot, cheapest at that time.

Well.. I would second DK2 and SKY's suggestions. Performance PCS (these guys have a pretty big collection) and Sidewinder Computers. FrozenCPU has even more stuff than Performance, but the shipping blows, they kill you on shipping costs really.

Also check Xoxide, they have a bunch of stuff too, not too much, but you might find something.

I really hope Charles fills Murderbox with loads of usefull stuff, and mostly things that you buy from US based stores.

Yeah i check murderbox daily, just waiting for more stuff to show up; I'd buy it all there right now if i could lol.

I also need to find someone to cut me a sheet of aluminium for the front panel of this project as well; I don't even know what to google for that!

Shit of Aluminium. oops I mean something like pc case aluminium, or aluminium sheet.

It is going to be hard for sure, unless you can find a cheap aluminium case somewhere and start messing it up.

Hi encorp,
What kind of aluminum are you looking for, or do you have it already and just need it cut. I work at a metal shop and might be able to help. Tell me what size you need and what kind if you know i.e. grain, no grain and hardness 3003, 5005 Ö and how thick. if you donít need a lot I can swing it, if you need more I can setup a purchase through my company. The only problem is Iím in Ajax and it would have to be a pickup.
