modding of an aging PC case
Hi to everyone,
Not new to HardwareCanucks but new to the forum. Some time ago I performed a bunch of mods on an old PC case of mine that I wasn't ready to retire. The reason being that I was updating all the hardware, including the watercooling components and that left little in my budget for an expensive enclosure. I also wanted to get my hands a bit dirtier so I went ahead and did these mods to try to improve on the case's short comings.
Being pretty satisfied with the fruits of my labor I thought I'd share it with other fellow modders or PC enthusiasts like yourselves. So I put together a series of videos documenting those very mods. I unfortunately didn't have a camera at the time of doing the mods but to compensate I created some flash animations, before and after shots and some "re-enactments" throughout.
By no means are these mods nor the quality of the videos in the same league as let's say MNPCtech but I still thought they could provide insight for the less seasoned modder out there. This is also my first jab at making how-to videos and I have plans to make more and film as I'm doing them.
Anyway enough rambling. Here's the links:
So far I have 4 and there are 2 more in the works. The mods range from installing a 250mm fan to a side panel to re-locating the hard drive cage to make room for a water pump and more.
Feel free to post comments or questions. Thanks. :canadianwave:
p.s.: Sorry for double thread, not intentional.
If this is one of you first how-to video, Bravo,
really nice and clear, step by step. I like how you showed the different layers of the window/fan
I'll second that, Bravo!
Wow, well done!
wow, very nice videos, easy to follow. Thanks for the tips!
Nice! we have many video review but no modding review on the forum!!! carry one and give us some more when you have;)
Hey thanks for the positive feedbacks guys, much appreciated. I must admit there are a few things that bother me after watching them a few times but I know what to watch out for now and I'll be sure to improve on them. I've got one in the works where I show, as I'm doing it, how I replace the X-Blade face emblem with a custom made chrome plated one.
that's insane man. props.
Nice work, good info and great viseos.
Thanks for posting!
