Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

MY NEW UPDATES HERE:http://linustechtips.com/main/topic/13640-project-sentimental-modded-nzxt-m59/page-2


Hi I have a fun build log (at least I hope) I personal am not liking any of the case in $150 to $200 so I have decided to mod my current case which is a NZXT M59. I am kinda of preparing it for a high end water cooling loop (Not going to be doing that for a couple months.) But anyways hope you all enjoy my crappy mods;)


^^Stock pic of case


^^My components out the case (ghetto test bed)


^^Test bed clean up



^^Case Stripped 




^^Putting 2 120mm fans in the front (some of my pics were to big for upload)


^^Cleaned up for the night


^^Color im shooting for on the case


^^Finished paint job

I'll finish the case when I get my final parts from performance pc. Parts include: bitfenix extension cables (Blue), Koolance 3 fan shroud for the top of the case, zip tie mounts, some blue led fans, and some u-channel.

That build's really begging for some water cooling. You could put a 360mm rad on the top and a 240mm in the front.


Nice work on the case.

Ya thats what im hoping to do soon. Probably when Haswell and Nvidea 7 series comes out.

Thank you! I definately plan on doing a couple things to the case. I for sure want to cut a bigger window in the side panel & well who knows I might finally decide to finally to a custom loop and mod a 360 rad to the front!
