    Default Modding my Buddies PC

    Someone I work with has been having problems with his old HP and asked if I could fix it. I told him that it would be better to buy a new one, but he just doesn't feel that he could afford it. So I told him that I could upgrade it for cheaper. He also said that he's just sick of looking at the case and said he wanted a new one, but I assured him that a little paint will go a long way. He didn't choose any specific color, he just said "surprise me".

    I forgot to take a pic of the entire case prior to modding, but you'll get an idea of what it looked like before. Here's the bezel.



    It separates at the bottom, which will be cool later.



    This is the right panel before



    Here's the panel after.



    I decided to go with black and green theme for the case.



    Here's the old system.

    AMD 1.0GHz
    384MB PC133
    OLD video card, sound card



    I gutted Paradise Lost and put the parts in his system.

    P4 2.8GHz (FSB 533)
    80GB Seagate
    HD cooler with LCD temps
    512MB PC2100
    Onboard video and sound



    I painted the bezel black and the floppy and DVD drive green.



    The lower portion of the front I painted green



    And put it on.







    Here's the panel for the window.



    Flipped over you can see what I'm cutting.





    The window gets cut tonight.

    So, I cut the window.



    And painted the inside of the panel black. . .



    And the outside green.



    I painted him a mouse to match.



    I do like the way it turned out. Obviously I took the time to make sure he had a real clean wiring job.







    The only lighting I added was this green bubble light.
