    nice window mod:)
    now u have to clean up those nasty power cables.....get some cable sleeves.....spiral wrap or split loom if youre lazy:)....

    are you gonna do the top and the other side of the case too?


    i cable sleeved all my psu connectors with this reflective cable sleeves fom heatshrink.com........definitely cleans it up alot...better airflow...so forth

    if u do a top window u gotta do a dvd window mod too:)...easier than doing case window..go figure......i just added some lazer leds inside my dvd drive

    i'll try to post pics.......dunno if i know how tho:)
    good luck on future mods:)
     
  7. personally id rather take my money and build more computers..... or at least use it for something that would help performance

    its like putting centerlines on a chevette but if you must at least clean up that rats nest - all the ones i built are harnessed neatly and i don't even show them off

  9. exactly when you have cases lined up side by side windows are useless

    Quick question:
    I am getting a new Case (Cheiftec) and it will be black. The main prob I have is that my CD, DVD and floppy are all PC Beige.
    I know that I will need to remove the front covers of the drives. I can almost do this. (The DVD Drive I am not sure how to get the tray out. The CDRW drive has a removable front face to the tray.

    But what should I use to paint the faces. Anyone know any distributors in the UK I can get the stuff from.
     
  11. no but i have a network here that would put some small businesses to shame

    A good automotive grade aerosol does a good job and is easy to match.

    I usually mod one case, and then leave the rest alone. I have 4 others that are not modded, it was just something to do

    you are right. I made sure that I like the insides before I worked on the outside. I was only $18, not like I can buy much else with that. it is something to do, and if you are one of the people that like it, do it. When I take her to lan partieseveryone likes it.
     
  17. i work too much , but i see your in pa.... i have a friend that has parties out lancaster/york way. that direction any?

    accualy, no. I used a jigsaw with a small steel bit. Worked faster. Cause the cut out does not need to be PERFECTLY straight, cause the rubber molding covers it up.
