First Mod 600t

Recommended Posts

Hi this is my first mod ever. The mods are pretty minor but have bigger plans for it soon.
Sorry about quality of pics taken on my phone

Mods so far:
1.Cut and painted tube sleeves White
2.Painted crossfire bridge
3.Painted video card cover and added a black pinstripe

4.Added a NZXT 120mm white fan rear exhaust

 

I plan on 
1.Painting the front fan white fins with black bracket and removing leds (Done but not happy with it)
2. Adding sound activated blue led strips for each audio channel and a always on UV light
3.Cutting the front mesh for better air flow (200mm)
4.Sleeving the sata, PCI-E,8 pin and 24 pin in a white high mesh
5. This is kinda out there for my current skill level but cutting most of the top mesh out building a bracket to hold the radiator so I can set up a push system

Any thought or suggestions and tips are most wecome

Do you have any experience of modding PC hardware? If no, then you should be happy with your current plan. :)

Thanks for the info. This will be my first time cutting / painting / sleeving a PC.

Just wanted to make sure that my plan wasn't to ambitious where every thing sounds good and easy in your head then you attempt it and run into all kinds of unforeseen problems

This is actually a nice plan, I would add a layer to it if you are interested. I would get some white vinyl applique, like lettering material and use it to cover the top of the Water 2.0 Pump as well, maybe even the side of the radiator.

That is a great idea was looking to get rid of that logo just wasn't sure how to do it.

I was looking at the radiator and noticed 3 holes on the side that look like mounting points was thinking of maybe getting something cut to fit it.

 

I just finished installing the front 200mm fan and added a 120mm in the 3 free bays for better circulation, well at least that's the idea I will stress it and see if temps are better.

 
I Also added the 24,8 and 6 pin PCI-E sleeves but the sleeving and heat shrink I ordered were the wrong size for the sata and the 6 pin that connects to the PSU for the molex connections

thanks 

I was toying with the idea of building a PSU cover that covers the one side and the top. I was thinking of going to an arts and crafts store and getting some plastic cutting and painting it black so you don't see XFX logo. That way all you would see is the black PSU cover with the White sleeved wires coming from it. I figure it shouldn't interfere with the PSU cooling since the air comes from the bottom and vent out the back.

You could also go the vinyl application route I suggested to cover the PSU. The cool thing about going that route is the various texture options like carbon fiber. If you are going the plastic route, which I think could be cool, I would cut it to go all the way to the HD cage and thus hide all the cabling.

was looking at it and was thinking what if i used fine mesh painted black. It would be much harder to get the correct angles with the hdd cage being slightly taller than the psu but that way I could secure it with screws to the front of the hdd cage. I could also use some rubber C channel on the back of the mesh because it will be pretty close to the mobo and I am a little paranoid. That way you will be able to see some white accent from the sleeved PSU 4 pin square molex connections to the PSU.

Finished my first attempt at the PSU cover. I used Modders Mesh and dusted it black to make it look more uniform. I also covered the back area with some mesh were the HDD cage was to break up all the white in that area. Also added some UV lights painted the converter box black with all the wire that go to it so it stays hidden better and not sure if I just suck that bad at sleeving SATA cable or what but i couldn't get them on to save my life so I broke down and painted one and added heat shrink to see what it would look like. I am not sure about the light on the right might switch it out for an 8 inch and hide it better 

 

Trying to get a hold of a real camera so the pics won't be so distorted but my pone is all I have just now

Made some changes took off the white tube covers because they looked to big near the pump so I tried something else. Not sure if I am going to keep this way or not still feeling it out as to what way I like better.

Painted the CCT converter and wires Black  and reseated the mesh on the back of the old hdd cage location behind the 200mm fan.

Added a toggle switch to the front for the UV lights.

Still trying to figure out how I am going to set up the Led's I was originally going to go with sound activated controller with 3.5mm line in but since I use Toslink for audio it would be a real pain to get it to work correctly with out killing the audio quality with all the splitters and digital to analog converter I would need to use. If I could use digital and analog at the same time this would be a non issue but Win 7 wont have any of that. :( I was thinking of maybe getting a water proof RGB led kit off amazon so I could have solid blue slow fade effect and mount them around the inside window, underneath the top mesh cover and in between the front filter and the 200mm fan but still not sure.
