P3 1Ghz/1GB DDR RAM. See web site for details. This is my first mod, and definitely not my last. I modified this case not only for the look, but because the air was not circulating and the P/S exhaust air was quite warm. After modification, the exhaust is much cooler. Extensive planning helps prevent errors in case modifications ( i.e. My window install is backwards. :( ).
My first mod (definitely not the last!!) OK, here goes: Suntek case, 2 Cooler Master temp controlled intake fans (80mm), 1 Cooler Master temp controlled fan in top blowhole (80mm), PlastiKote luminous spray paint, Gigabyte GA 5AX mobo, AMD K6-2 500 @ 578 (105*5.5), Cooler Master heatsink & fan (60mm), 250W PSU, Memorex 52x CD-ROM, Iomega Zip250, Floppy, Fujitsu 20Gb HDD (drive case rotated 90 degrees to catch cool air from top intake fan), SBLive! 512 soundcard, 32MB Diamond Stealth AGP card (w/Socket-7 heatsink attached), 56K V90 modem, 3Com NIC.Funnily enough this rig seems quiter than when I just had the single intake fan! Gonna upgrade to overclocked Athlon as and when funds allow. May even watercool :o)
IBM Aptiva My first mod. I got bored with my IBM Aptiva so I added a window and two blue neons. You can't see the glow very well but looks good at night. I have a PII 450, 128mb RAM, overclocked Voodoo3, DVD rom and a 16 gig HD. Big upgrade coming around january - Athlon XP 1800+, 512mb DDR Ram, geForce3 Ti500, soundblaster LIVE! DE 5.1 SE, 16w, 10rw CD-R, 350w PSU and a gigabyte motherboard... all that going into the current case (which is one of the better looking IBM cases around)
A 4Q case modded with dual power supplies, 15 (stealth mod) fans, rounded cables, blue diodes, purple neon, blue custom window, custom paint, and stuffed with the usual parts like AMD Athelon 950 Overclocked to 1.007 MhZ (106 x 9.5), 3 Hard drives providing 60 gigs of storage, 1.5Gig of PC 150 memory with Thermaltech coolers, Fireport SCSI controls the CD, CDR, and Hidden SCSI Zip drives, yada yada yada.
First case mod. Case from www.kustompcs.co.uk with pre-cut window, bay-bus, and blue neon light. I wasn't confident enough to cut my own window initially, but I did cut my own intake fan holes. Keyboard illumination via car dashboard illumination accessory, modified to take 12V supply from computer power supply. The Devil's in the detail. System Info: Orchid 880B Tower case, ABIT KT7a-RAID, Athlon 1.2 GHz (266MHz) @1.4GHz, Thermalright SK6 Heatsink, Delta 7000rpm 60mm Fan, Gainwood Geforce3, Crucial 256Mb SDRAM, IOMEGA Zip100, Pioneer A05SW DVD, 3 1/2" Floppy Disk, Creative CDRW121032, Haupauge WinTV PCI Tuner, Creative SoundBlaster Audigy, Creative DTT3500 Digital 5.1 Speakers, Maxtor 51536H2 15Gb Harddrive, Seagate ST38641A 8.4Gb Harddrive, Logitech Cordless Optical Mouse, Microsoft Internet Keyboard, LG 915FT Plus Flatron 19" Monitor, Blue Neon Light, Yellow Glow wire, Blue Glow wire, Various fans sprayed fluorescent colours, Blue LED's, & Blue LED Keyboard illumination. Electroluminescent back-lit case badge from www.phamcomputer.com. Easy Mod, looks nice: The glowing power leads. The leads are initially tidied up with ribbon cable wrap, and the glow wire is then threaded though. I didn't want to chop my glow wire into short lengths, so I taped off areas of glowwire that I didn't want visible. You can splice in lengths of normal wire if want short sections of glow wire, although it's a bugger to solder to.
From Italy with hearts. Now also in Italy the modding is running :). My little "children": PIII 800MhzEB, 384 MB Ram, Mobo Asus CUV4X, WoodooV 64MB Chip166Mhz x 2, Sound Blaster 1024, Creative 4 Point Surround, Hd Quantum 30GB 7200Rpm, ASUS DVD 12x, 40x CD-ROM, mouse and keyboard Logitech, Monitor LG Flatron 795 Plus USb, Modem External Trust ISDN, Creative WebCam Go Plus, 2 blue neon and a lot of passion for MODDING!!!!!! ;)
Experiments in boredom. I actually made these mods almost two years ago. Since I took these pictures I've added on a Fanbus to vary the voltage/sound, and lots of sound damping material. The paint if Rustolium's "Hammered Metal" paint. It has a textured finish and hides all flaws. Because of the design of the case interior I had to add four 80mm fans instead of one 120mm fan on top.
Total Woodcase. This is my first attemt of casemod's, its not even a 'real' mod since everything is made from scratch :) Machine is my 1992 Amiga 1200 mobo with a PowerPC 603 cpu, if you go to my homepage you can se more pics, coz the rear side have alot of routed holes for every plug/port connection. I had to add 3 fans later(not showing on pics) coz heavy load from watching VCD's and divX;) movies. Also after adding a 10.000rpm scsi disk, all 4 fans runs 24hrs heh. Later i wanna add a LCD panel display and use it for system info/mp3 titles/url in browser. Then tower is completed i start using Teak wood or similar.
