Got a new rig to show off or just want help with the latest Tech, if it’s for PC this is the place.

Case Modding

Post by MadManCK » Fri May 03, 2013 7:47 pm

My current case is a Cosmos II from Coolermaster and the only thing i modded on it so far is mounting a big 20cm blue led fan in the top of it to create some massive airflow.

Did any of you modify your case and how?
Pictures appreciated 8-)

Yes MadMan, I'm currently working on a sidepanel window mod to my Antec P183 case, which i have been plaining to do for years - even with the case before it, but i was too lazy to do it then :mrgreen:

I have at the moment cut the hole in the side panel and cut the plexi glass window to fit it, now i just need to fit the window and mount the new lights i ordered for it 8-) - it should be done within the next week - i hope
In my design i'm aiming at getting the look of this modded Antec P182 case - which looks awsome 8-)

I'll let you know how mine turns out - i can only hope to match that case :lol:

Could be a weeks time, as i'm waiting on parts ;)

Thanks, I used a jigsaw for the striates and for the corners in the sidepanel i drilled them out with a large saw drill bit, and afterwards i cleaned it up with a file and some sandpaper ;)

It's a time consuming progress, but in the end it will look good 8-)

FYI the saw drill bit looks like this :mrgreen:

Nice job. That turned out pretty well. :handgestures-thumbup:
Looking forward to the pics with the lights and working PC

Funny, i have used a similar drill bit to make some 8cm holes for extra fans in an aluminum case. Strong stuff.
