    Default 1st mod - 40's style radio

    So this is my first mod, so go easy on me. lol

    I was a little short on money when I made this mod, so this is a regular desktop

    here are the components


    Pentium 4 3.2 GHz

    1 GB ddr2

    300W PSU

    80GB HDD

    120MM blue L.E.D fan

    2 green cold cathodes (green)

    and a sheet of plexi-glass


    this is the inside of the case after being emptied

    my 300W PSU

    My MOBO

    My Cold Cathodes

    My L.E.D Fan

    My PSU and Fan

    The cathodes installed in the case

    Everything in the case, I was so happy when I saw everything fitted in.

    My plexi-glass after some rough cutting

    working on the pexi-glass

    some more working

    Piercing the ventilation holes

    Made holes in the original buttons to make the power on and leds fit

    Again just some polishing up, made this little part from the original wheel

    Finally, the end result

    I would have to guess it'd sell for around $150. Depending on the mods, (from my observation) they don't make much profit and usually sell for around whatever the hardware is worth on the second hand market. Then again, you never know on ebay... with one of a kit items, it only takes two people that really want it.

    PS: I'd probably put some more holes down below, maybe even another fan? What kinda temps are you getting at idle?

    looks pretty sweet! might I suggest a tripod for your photos? might clear up the blurriness factor.

    love old radios.

    I wish the inside of the case looked a bit cleaner (not sure what kind of cable mgmt options are available here), but other then that, looks great!
