    Default First Mod

    Hi there,
    here are some pictures of my very first mod. I had my sister draw a dragon for me, which I put on the window. Chose red because I thought it was a nice color and I think it worked out nice...
    I made the hard-drive bay myself and put it on the front of the case. That was before I noticed that there was virtually no room for my hard drive wiring... Sow fitting the drives in the bay and connecting them was hard work. The fan at the front is cooling my three hard drives...
    I didn't paint my monitor because it belongs to my roommate and he doesn't want me to spray it
    If you want to see larger images just click here and click "bekijken"













    for those interested, the system I'm running is:
    AMD K6-II 500 MHz processor
    188 MB SDRAM memory
    on-board video and sound
    and a massive 470 GB storage capacity
    and yes... I'm using it as a file server, and nothing more

    thats some kicka$$ wire management for a first mod, fair play, I love the idea of the red lighting with a dragon, thats prob coz im welsh ;-) lol. But i must say i like it alot. If you could give reputations on this board id give you one. But that case would look 500 times better if you sprayed the inside of the case black. Do that and you have one hell of a mod.

    I'm not sure if I should... The lighter background reflects the light a bit, I don't know if it looks nicer when it is sprayed black. but if you're sure it would look a lot cooler, i might spray it black some time.

    that might not be a bad idea! it'll also give a nice color when the lights are turned off (in the daylight)...

    Paint the inside. That will make your mod look about 50X better.

    I've decide to paint the inside of the case orange (thnx for the tip GT40)..

    also I'm trying to get my hands on a new heatsink, a thermaltake volcano 7+, which is a 100% copper heatsink... I think the color will look nice in there, and also, because it is copper I might not even need a fan (remember I'm using a 500 MHz AMD K6 II processor)... but I'm not sure about that now...

    I will spray the case in a few weeks, because I will have to pass some exams the comming weeks

    anyways, I'll send an update when it's done
