    I was wondering if I should use this old HD cooler bay front piece in place of one of the bays to "look" like a car grill? Or would it be overkill?



    Also, since I lost money on the motherboard in a bad ebay transaction and since my In-Laws will be visiting in 2 weeks, I added a multifunctional floppy/media reader drive. I was going to add a Matrix Orbital LCDC, but do not have the money.

    So I was looking at maybe putting the engine inside, but I think it's way too big. It sure won't fit between the drive cage rails and it would probably prevent a video card from staying in the slot.






    I added some lights to the right side to shine out of the side scoops.




    Here's some pics of the lights so far.

    The motherboard arrived today. (The second one I bought)



    I set the Proc in



    and the Hyper48 heatsink



    And then the memory was seated



    Lastly I replaced to IO plate





    More to come. I'm gonna modify the heatsink so that it appears to have this on it.

    And after all this work, I'm giving it away on Sept 10th to my In-Laws!
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Here's another pic of the motherboard with all the cards, thus far.



    I put the glass back on the front too.



    I also have been doing a bit of Soldering to take out the switches these cathodes come with. I don't want a bunch of switches on the back panel. When you power up the lights come on and then they turn off when you power down.



    For the loose lighting cables...




    ...I'm glueing them all down. Trust me, a glue gun is always nice to have around.




    Lastly, I'm thinking of adding a UV cathode above the motherboard. There will be a few UV cathodes inside to really show off the UV sensitive Mobo.

    I could never stand seeing the drive bay cage from the window.



    Can you think of something I can put there to cover it up that'll look cool? I thought about making a dealer window sticker for the 1971 Dodge Charger SuperBee and put that there. What do you think?

    I kind of like the blue wiring. Some color wiring may be cool.

    I tried plugging in the CPU fan, that has 4 pins to the place on the board that only has 3, but it won't fit here.



    What's this 4 pin power for?



    This cable comes from the floppy/media reader, but I don't know where to plug it in. The 4 pin jumper above doesn't say if it has data + or data -.



    Here's 2 pics of what he proc will kind of look like with the engine cover on.




    I painted the exposed drive bays black.



    I'm gonna copy the look of an engine with this CAT 5 cable.



    I cut it up and I'm going to try to find a way to make it look good there.



    Lastly I made all the power connections and cleaned up the wiring. The IDE cables will be black.

    About 1 week ago she found out and is happy that I'm doing the mod.
    ************************************************** *******
    I've decided against the blue wires. It looked real stupid and untidy. With just a black cage it looks real clean and simple.

    I bought a 10 inch UV cathode from AutoZone. These are brighter than ones made for PC's.



    I got out a spare molex



    Then I cut off the end and separated the 12V from the ground.



    I did the same with the molex



    Then soldered them together.



    And it works!



    So I put it in the case.




    Next comes the engine/processor mod. I bought an 80mm blow hole funnel and a 120mm to 92mm fan adapter.



    I slid one into the other....



    And cut away the excess.



    Then screwed it back to the heatsink.



    Finally, I used silicone to bond the engine top to the structure.
