First computer case mod

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi!

 

This is my first build log and my first computer case mod.

Hope you like it :)

 

The idea is something like toxic or something like biohazard theme.

All ideas are welcome.

I bought cheap case just because I wanted to try some things on it. :)

Also this build is very cheap and I will try to make everything myself and not buy new things.

 

Case: LC-power pro 927B

Motherboard: Asus m5a99x r2 evo

Cpu: amd fx 8350

Gpu: Geforce gts 450

PSU: I have no clue, got it from school. some 500W

SSD: Kingston fury 240gb 

RAM: Kingston hyperx CL10 1866MHz DDR3

Cooler: Antec 650

Mouse: deathadder chroma

Keyboard: Some chines tuning keyboard xD

Headset: steelseries siberia v2

 

PSU and GPU I will upgrade ;)

 

Also I will make custon watercooling loop when I get littlebit more money.

 

Case looked like this when I first got it

First things I did ->

Inside is some random motherboard with stock cooler just for show.

Then I started to do some lighting.

Tried some hose just for show again :)

Now I went grazy and removed everything I did.

The sound isolating material was just test, they will not be there when its all finished.

So yeah, I went grazy with my dremel and removed HDD places and everything else what I didnt need.

 

Now the whole thing looks like this:

The paint looks terrible and I think something else. The green fans will be replaces with green led fans.

Under the HDD is SSD

I will replace cables and hide every cable as soon as I get my new PSU.

And the sound isolating material will be replaced beautifully again so it hides most of the cables.

Oh yeah, the side panel will have real glass with smoked tint at the end :)

As I said, I will try to make everything myself so no hard feelings :)

For a first mod that's pretty good :D

 

For my eyes, yes thats pretty good :D

Sure If I have many money (xD) I would by normal case and buy bolt on things :D

But for some reason, I like to do everything from scratch :)

Awesome!. A 360mm rad in that gap (where you have the liquid cooler right now) would be sweet for a liquid cooled build. Just touch up the paint on the front (you can also do accents on the glossy plastic part on the front too. If you have extra metal and bending tools, you can make a meal shroud for the front i/o (5.25 bay) wires or the psu/hdd area. 

 

Those things are just nitpicks though, awesome first mod.

Good idea. 

360mm radiador would be cool but lets think about that when I build the custon loop. Now its sealed and I dont really want to open it because I dont have liquid to fill it again.

At first I tought that I hide the wires under the sound isolating material but I think your idea is better.
