The Black Box is a heavily modified AT-style full tower case. It has been modified to accept ATX motherboards, and now has 2 power supplies, one AT 250W and one ATX 250W. The AT 250W power supply provides power for the cooling system, and the ATX 250W power supply provides power for the computer. The case was also modified to contain a built-in water cooling / peltier system. The cooling system is now part of the computer case. The outer panels were replaced with wooden panels, finished with mahogany wood stain.

So what do you do when you don't like the dull greys they paint your computercase in? You go out and buy yourself some spraycans and some vinyl, take your case apart and start spraying. You can see the results below...
A single Intel Pentium III - 733MHz, 128MB RAM. I have four 80mm fans.. yet there is more to come in the future. :) I think it looks kind of cool right now, but there is a whole lot of work left to get it really cool!!!
This is my primary workstation, my frag box, and my main graphics workstation for the business as well as my net box and so forth.I decided this box needed something to make it stand out a bit, so the following is what I did with it.
The case is a Premier midtower ATX, with a 300 watt PSU, Asus A7V mainboard,AMD T-Bird 800, soon to overclocked. There are 40 fiberoptics mounted in the window hooked to a 10 led chaser unit. Fiberoptics are also used in the front bottom using a 2 led blinker, all led units have adjustable rates. The temp units are from RadioShack.com. These light mods look pretty cool all lit up, well at least I think so. Cooling mods are next. Keep modding!
