Hi Guys So I thought graduation big thing for me but I haven't done anything Cool computer wise so I have some 775 extreme stuff lying around so i thought OMG NEW GAMING RIG so i have parts that i need coming in and I have everything but a case but it just so happens that i have a weird but cool ATX tower with plenty of potential. I will have pics of it tomorrow. But It is a relatively cool case top mounted PSU and the top slides out so the side panels are pulled/slide out of the top. The only problem with this case is that it is that old school beige/pee color and no window. So im thinking of adding a hot swap bay type thing like on the thermaltake dokker series and a window but i want to do more. I need suggestions and what kind of u channel molding to use for the custom window.

I was thinking something like style 4,5 or 6. And also what shape the window should be...what do you guys think?

 

 

and yes both side panels slide up so both can be modded so i need a cool logo for the right side panel behind the Mobo.

 

Any suggestions will be taken into account if you want to see something cool (within reason) add a link to what you are talking about.

 

And you guys now how some laptops have a logo that lights up i was wondering if anyone has any clue of something that i can use to capture that feel like a type of light panel that i could put behind a cutout?

 

and if i like it ill keep it and if I REALLY LIKE IT I will sell it :P

 

Here are the pics before the Modding

A simple rectangle always looks neat and is easy to do.

 

good video on installing a window

This is a simple way of doing it so that pretty much anyone can do it. It also mean you wont have to worry about cracking the acrylic by drilling through it, you wont have to worry about trying to work out how to fix it. It is neat, simple and easy.

Ok Guys ***UPDATE*** Getting a Dremel on Friday

 

Definitely going to make a Devil May Cry Themed Case im pretty sure that i will get it done between now and the DmC: Devil May Cry Reboot Release.

 

Updates on the modding

Since the case only had an 80mm exhaust hole cutting a hole for an 120mm fan.

Same for the intake..

Found a random hdd cage and rotating it so that the business area is in the back.

Painting the inside black

cutting a hole on the MoBo Tray for an Afternarket Heatsink Backplate.

Color Scheme is going to pretty much be a gothic demon thing so black/red/some blue/some white

 

uploading pics in a lil bit
