    Default Project: Tempest SXR



    Ok, this isn't quite started yet. I have started getting parts in for it though. Once my NZXT Tempest EVO case comes in work will be under way.

    The subject: NZXT Tempest EVO, courtesy of NZXT, from the Blast From The Past Contest! A HUGE thanks again to those guys for sponsoring the contest and hooking us up with some great gear!!



    This mod, like Rockin Case, will be sponsored by my good friend John over at PCBoard.ca!


    I've already received another RGB LED kit (new version 3), as well as some more RGB modules and some other goodies. I've also got more 5mm RGB LED's on the way from LED Shoppe. This will take care of all interior and exterior lighting. The blue LEDs that come in the fans will be replaced with RGB ones, as well as the 2 front blue LED light strips on the case.

    I've got another special project for this case. The only thing I'll reveal is that it requires the use of an Arduino. Stay tuned for that!

    All of my current hardware will be going into this new case. Nothing new and flashy (unfortunately lol).

    The only thing I'll have to redo is my switch panel for the RGB controller and button and LED for the DVD drive, and I'll have to redo the front faceplate for my stealthed DVD drive.

    Well once the case comes in I'll start having updates!!

    oh, so I am doing it wrong!
    lol, I know the difference. you still have to tear it apart, and that constitutes breaking it(in my neighborhood anyway)

    no breaking it would be trying to get a part off and physically breaking a piece lol. this is just going to be disassembly

    Actually, even getting a bit and it coming off isn't REALLY breaking it - not unless it's impossible to fix. That's just be HALF modding it lol
