First Mod 600t

Recommended Posts

Thanks guys,

     I am still planing out the LED's just want to make sure I got all the parts I need before I hit the buy button on Amazon.

I was also toying with the idea of building A back plate for my 7770's since no one makes one because its a mid level card.

Was thinking of getting some 3/32 plexiglass from home depot and cutting it to shape with some recessed vent cuts for the heat and 7770 recessed in to it but paint all the recessed bits black but this would require some routing skills i don't really have so might my buddy to help me out with that one.

Made back plate for the video card but this is just a rough draft (prototype) I made it using acrylic sheet from home depot and some left over modders mesh when i get a router will redo.

painted a cooler master 120mm fan all white and rapped in black modders mesh mounted on the HDD cage to help compensate for the heat on video cards.

You know, that keyboard would look a lot better if it was reversed.  White frame, black keycaps and white LED backlit.

 

@op

Like the mods so far, though if it was me I would have to move that vertical UV because it looks out of place.

There is the sweetest Ducky Mech keyboard that would match this build. Black with white keycaps :)

the thought crossed my mind to get something like this but I don't use my keyboard for gaming Instead I use A 360 controller or Belkn n52te speed pad with A Razer Naga 2012 mmo mouse combo. Right now my desk is white with all my peripherals, monitor and printer black it was like this before I bought this case so It was a happy coincidence.

I was thinking the same thing I moved it once from the side of the 5.25 bays to the side of the mobo tray but now you can see it from the window so I just took it out for now and it does look allot better.

 

 

Hopefully by next week the rest of my stuff will get in and I will be closer to the finished product

Update:

Made some new changes finally got the leds set up the way I want them and made the new video card back plates. I couldn't get my buddy to help me out with the router so had to compromise on my own with acrylic and mesh. Also added some led rocker switches for the UV and the blue Leds.

Definately decent for your first mod, congrats!

 

For future refference, when painting surfaces that get hot (like VGA coolers) or heatsinks that need to transpire, the best result will come from Acryl based paint (some include dissolvant, stay away from those and non sinthetic either). You
