    Default Starting Modding.

    Howdy, just getting into the modding scene and wanted to get some opinions on my case and what I could do to it to make it original and sweet.











    Specs:
    Asus A8N-SLI MoBo
    AMD Opteron 165 overclocked from 1.8ghz to 2.4ghz
    GeForce 7800gtx overclocked
    Hiper 580w Type-R PSU
    4x512 Kingston RAM
    2 Western Digital HD's (200gb) (50gb)


    I might paint the inside black or blue and paint the outside in some ancient alien pattern or something.

    Comments are appreciated.

    Painting the inside is a good idea, it makes for a very nice look. Also, do you already know what you kinda want the outside to look like, the pattern I mean? Like crop-circle type things?

    Anyways, yeah, painting the inside would be good.

    Hmm... nice rig what could you do to it? well...

    ..when i looked at your case i automatically thougth of a window etch ..don't know why..
    ..painting the inside/ouside is a very good idea..
    ..hiding the wires a bit more..
    (these are the easy things)
    ..more customized cooling?.. like change everything and modd that too .. i'm thinking a combination of copper, aluminum, heatpipes, silent fans, paint and acrylic.. to make everything work better and look better
    ..do something to the front panel?.. some holes? modeling? acrylic work? mesh? intakes? i like the alien theme idea.. could be brilliant..

    ..hmm.. guess i should go back to modding my case.. i might have some withdrawal issues :p

    HD's mounted backward and IDE's taken out.

    And the PSU is doing great so far (fairly new), theres also a black version.

    I'm 15 btw, so sometimes its abit hard getting hold of stuff like UV paint, lights etc.

    I'll definately be painting the inside, not sure if I should do it UV or just shiny black. I'll think about the outside aswell, oh and the mesh idea soudns good.

    I think you shouldn't paint it black, I think it'll make it one dark hole you look in... Instead maybe some kind of blue would be nice...

    I've a crazy idea.

    Just for the way your case looks...paint the whole thing black. Then, open it up, and draw at every corner and edge, with a UV pen or some UV paint, lines. Then pop a UV cathode in there and watch it REALLY come to life.

    Oh, and welcome to the boards!
