    Got a Crap Case, What to do?

    My boss bought a new laptop and gave me her old desktop tower. It's got a P3 barely running Win98. Maybe my next mod?

    What kind of theme do you think I should go with?









    Looks like a Butterfly!

    Whoa first thing I'd do is that I'd put a laptop's CD/DVD-RW combo (or blu-ray? ) instead of that butterfly

    I think that the case would fit great with somekind of space theme because of the rounded corners..

    I believe the butterfly thing is just a storage area for cd's. It sure is a tiny thing, it might be good for a MP3 player. lol Happy Modding to ya.

    Well after seeing what Defyant did with those things I think what you decide to do with it is limited only by your skill and imagination. Good luck to ya and have fun!

    You could do a muscle-car theme, that's just what it reminds me of. I would relocate the psu to below where is it is now, though to do that would require making a new back panel. You could bondo some cowlings/air scoops on the sides/top/front. Maybe a fold-down cowling that you have to open to open the doors. Like on MNPCtech's cpu Stingray. Doing what Defyant did would be difficult because of the doors/flaps on the front. You could do a row of something on the wider side of the front (like bolts, cap nuts, somethings). I'm about out of ideas.

    i just had a mad mad mad idea! ok.....call it a weird one, but why not base if on a sci-fi theme?? like a "supercomputer" be it silver high glossing of course! but anyway....the case has got lots of bits and things coming and going on it, so i thought hey this would be a good sci-fi 2020 kinda of computer yeno what i mean?? with thetop that rise's that could be some kind of thing that has a fan underneath of course it would be painted and have like tubes or sumit coming out of it aswell, also on the front one of the panels could have a lcd display so asif the computer was working somthing, oh and make the doors motrized

    well thats what i would do with the ugly rig, haha bless it

    LoL @ razer's comments :P
    (at least the end parts )

    but hey, yeah I agree with razer!! A sci-fi theme would be awesome! Altho putting a "beast" into this PC is nearly impossible (or is it? :O ) but heh.. the only limitation is your imagination.. (just thought this is a cool rhyme.. lol)

    For the top cd holder/spindle you could cut a hole and install a 120mm resevoir. The sci-fi theme sounds good as well.
