Took the Antec case and removed the plastic side panel. Replaced it with a stained glass replica of DaVinci s Vitruvian Man. Took a couple of weekends to cut, grind and assemble the piece (was my second stained glass piece ever). A friend of mine came up with the hinge which is 2 brass rods bent into L then inserted into a copper pipe and soldered onto the glass piece. The other end of the L s were then mounted to the case with U-bolts. Weatherstriping to make it airtight and basic black trim around the glass itself. 1x80mm, 3x40mm intake. 1x80mm exhaust plus power supply fan. Blue neon in the bottom. Red superbright LED array mounted in the top as well as another array mounted behind the front bezel. Custom Vitruvian case badge. Since the pic was taken I have upgraded the processor and heatsink to a Cel 800 @ 1032 w/ Alpha heatsink and one of those crappy Intel retail fans (it was flat enough that I didn t loose a memory slot). I have also added a fanbus, wrapped all of the cables (had to clean up that mess). I have also added a neon string mod to my keyboard. Future plans: Attempt to fit another light in there somewhere, mod my MS Optical Trackball and have my father cut me a Vitruvian Man stainless steel fan guard on the laser where he works.
Took the better part of a weekend to do these mods (painting in winter is fun!) Spray painted the DVD and FDD faceplates black, and painted the buttons, thumbscrews, locks and hinges with gold enamel.
My current main system - Valar. AthlonXP 2000+, AOpen AK77 Plus (KT266A), ThermoEngine HS/F, 2 x 256MB Kingmax DDR333, Abit Siluro MX400, SBLive! 5.1, 80GB Seagate Barracuda IV, AOpen 16x DVD, ROMTEC Trios, ACS-48 and Samsung SyncMaster 955DF monitor. It gets the job done :)
This is a case I made for a friend of mine "dragonfly" he wanted to have a neon, watercooling, plexi, extra fans etc so that's what we did, for more pictures check out the site and go to the link. Project X and check DragonFly'z Project X thank you , I hope you'll enjoy it.
My computer is an AMD 1800+, Iwill KK266 Plus-R Motherboard with 1.5 Gigs of RAM. 30 Gig 7200 RPM Western Digital drive, Philips Burner, DVD and ZIP 100. 32MB Diamond Video (soon to upgrade). Custom Link/Act lights on the front of the case that are soldiered in with my Netgear FA311 NIC and a WinTV tuner card. Also shown is an old HP vectra 166Mhz with 98Meg of Ram that serves as my Linux Box.
Found this case in my friends garage. Has a slide cover for the CD-ROM drives/floppy. I started to mod it by first cutting the square out, and then the AMD logo. After that, bought some rustolem Blue Metallic Paint. Went through 3 cans. After that, bought some plexi, and got my dad to cut out the blow hole, to put my huge fan in it. Then bought a blue cold cathode. I plan to paint the inside, when it gets warm. For the specs on this system, go to my case modding website. I hope to have my own lil' gallery of my own.
10-switches-dual-colored-led-baybus controles the fans between 12/7V. The wireing was a nightmare, but it works :D 'Ullers LED-Meter' (to the right) shows the CPU usage and the VU-Meter shows the sound activity in Windows.
Silver "Hydraulic Case", IWill XP333R, AthlonXP 1800+, Liquid Neon, 92mm & 80mm Enermax Variable speed fans, 330 Enermax Whisper PS, Visiontek G3 and 256 megs of Corsair XMS2400 Ram. Case runs very cool and is not loud at all. The case didn't have any vents on the front?!?!?!?!, however a few moments with a 92mm hole saw cured that. Filter's on the inside, as well. I also built a drive bay cooler into the housing. **I'm replacing the XP333 with an Abit KR7A R as this is being written.
