My first mod case, Contain Thunderbird 900, Asus A7V133 mainboard, IBM 20GB & Seagate 2GB HDD, Matrox G400, Creative Labs Sound Live Value!, Asus 50x CDROM Drive, Enlight 7650 case. An extra fan blow under the mainboard to CPU and PSU mounted outside for better cooling system. No problem for O/C in future!!
I'm a UK modder, a rare farming breed (possibly the only farming modder in the world). My very first case mod. Cost all of 38 pounds : 25 for the neon. 10 for fans an grills, nicked the perspex from school (they didn't know it had gone) and had all the tools. I really need some trim for the window, but i still think the rivets look 'ard. Neon string will soon be added. Nothing to set the house on fire inside, typical duron/geforce mx.
Thanks to Virtual Hideout and their sponsors I have something new to add to my current computers everyday. First case mod: Window and neon light added with switch punched in front. Added extra fans to P3-866, 386MB ram, 30GB boot and 2x45GB RAID Cable bundle idea: I didn't want to risk messing up the Ultra Wide SCSI cable so I gently bent it into a wire wrap and secured it with wire ties. Works great and no cutting! Wire harness contains cabling and power 10 drives, 4 extra fans and the light kit!
My first mod to date a P3 450 overclocked to 630mhz no a Asus P3B-F M/B , AGP Bus is fan cooled by a Tennmax Lasagna BGA cooler, I had seen the Tennmax cooler on a website and had to have it.The plexi window was cut and installed today no ( Dremel ) used air tools do a much better job you think ? Have a baybus in the works but i need more parts. My wife says i am nuts go fig. I have a Voodoo 4/4500 but two weeks ago it craped out M/F on me so it is in the shop and 3dfx is out of biz my Bad Luck ah.
