Pastry rack purchased from Bed, Bath and Beyond holding an EPOX 8K7A+. 1.4Ghz Tbird O/C'd to 1.53. Zalman CNPS 5000 with a 60x80mm fan adapter running an 80mm Sunon. And the clip on Wal-Mart "Wal-O-Wind" fan blowing air over the entire mobo. Standard temps while under load (Seti Crunching) 36-38c depending on ambient. Less is more.
There is no substitute for horsepower! AMD Athlon T-Bird 1.33GHz @ 1.5GHz (AXIA), modded GeForce 3 with Blue Orb and RAM sinks by Thermaltake running at 240/500, ABIT KG7-RAID mobo w/dual 40GB Maxtor HDDs, lapped and polished Globalwin FOP-38 7000RPM fan, 256MB PC2700 RAM from OCZ w/RAM sinks, Kenwood 72x CD-ROM, SB Audigy sound, rounded cables, two 92mm Sunon fans in the side, two 80mm inside, positive case pressure = zero dust buildup.
Papst 120mm, Tiger 80mm and a Papst 60mm a 4-Baybus (7V/12V) and a Keycard-reader to start the machine ;) and 2 blue, 1 extra bright blue and red LED (that is cheaper and brighter as an CC) and one Blacklight inside the case.
It's not much of a case mod, but I like to leave the chassis exposed to impress "the ladies". This box carries a classic AMD slot 1, S3 Savage4 graphics card, SB 128 PCI, and a speedy 4x burner. Yeah I know - I'm livin' in style.
Athlon 1.4 266, Abit DDR mobo, 256MB DDR RAM, 17GB HDD, GeForce 256, DVD (with LED mod), 24x burner, pink blue and red cold cathodes (swithched). Now has a funky spray job and 120 mm intake fan in front. Pix don't show this yet but lets you see my water setup nicely. Case £30, Pump £18, Tubing £5, Block £0, Radiator £5, 120 mm fan £1, various bits and bobs £7. Not bad for a bit of brain work.
This is my 1st (!) case mod. So here follow some facts about it. The mobo is a MSI K7T Turbo RAID limited Ed. The CPU is an AMD Duron 700@900 MHz, 256 MB RAM, One 13.5GB 7200RPM IBM HDD, Maxtor 40GB 7200RPM HDD, 100MB Zip, Samsung DVD-ROM SD-616, Toshiba CD-ROM XM-5702B (OK, I know it´s a little bit old). Inside my case there are three additional braking lights for cars (you can see them on my HP) and I think all of u guys know the little cutout at the front of the case :-)
This is my first casemod, it is not finished yet. I just have to add a CD-ROM and a floppy drive. it is a P200 with 128 Megs RAMM, just a nice mp3 player for party's! just need a keyboard to start winamp! nothing more.
Lian-Li PC70 Server Tower, 10" x 14" Blue Plexiglass windows mod on the side. 4" x 8" Blue Plexiglass window mod on the front side. 12" Blue Cold Cathode light with On / Off switch mounted on the side. 9 additional holes ranging from 80mm to 120mm cut out of the case. All fan wiring was shrouded in shrink tubing and heated to conform then fixed to the case. 4 USB Ports mounted in the lower front of the case.
This is my first mod. Water cooled AMD Thunderbird 1.4 @ 1.6 on Gigabyte 7DXR mobo, RAID 2 x 40GB IBM HDD, GeForce 3 and 512 DDR RAM. Modding this case was the most fun and I enjoyed every minute of it. (I have already started the next one, this is addiction).
And here is a list of all of the changes. I drilled out the rivets holding the back panel in place inverted the panel and screwed it back together. Flipped the mobo tray upside down and bolted it to the opposite side of the case. Applied 4 coats of green paint to frame and 2 coats of clearcoat. Applied 2 coats of navy blue to front panel and 2 coats of clearcoat.-Cut Lucite, (plexiglass), to fit the top and both sides of the case. This took many hours with a dremle tool. Drilled many, many, holes to fit the glass, fans, side, and rear panels into place. Installed a cool backlit thermometer/clock. I braided the power/reset/led wires and spent about an hour trying to get the cables as much out of view as possible. Installed round IDE cables and a Dragon ORB. I still need to do some touchup work. I need to sand down some rough edges, and cut a peice of tin to fit the hole where the cards stick out.
ASUS A7M mother board, AMD 1GHz CPU, generic nVIDIA GeForce2 GTS w/TV out, 3Com 10/100 NIC, Enermax 350 watt PSU, 256MB PC2400 DDR RAM, 40GB IBM Deskstar 7200RPM HDD, Creative 52x CD-ROM, packed into an old Moosehead beer crate. I had to make a custom switch and LED set put into a slot cover to turn it on and reset it.This case was built to use as part of my entertainment center without having a big beige case sitting there. It is used to play MP3s and MPEGs/AVIs on the TV and stereo. It sits in my living room with a plant on it and nobody knows whets in there. During LAN parties it is used as a game server for many different games.
