    Diary Of a Caffiene Junkie: Rockstar Energy Drink Case Mod

    Hey guys, taking a break from the cable company, wife has ok'd taking a crack at pro case modding. looking for support here, and prob some q and a sessions.

    I'm a Rockstar junkie, and the only Rockstar mod I know of is on a Wii. So hopefully I can generate some attention and maybe some $ for future mods.

    The Concept: Powered by Rockstar!
    (pending approval by Rockstar for logo and name use)



    The Victim:

    Thermaltake Armor Full Tower



    The guts of the system:

    eVGA 680iLT LGA775

    Intel Core 2 Duo e4400 @ 3.33 Ghz currently, looking for 4Ghz with water

    4GB G. Skill DDR2 800Mhz @ 4-4-3-5, can hit 1100Mhz w/ looser timing

    WD 320GB SATA 7400RPM
    Sony SATA DVD+-RW
    Xion 600W PSU
    eVGA 7800GT (not a hardcore gamer, just City Of Villains. PS this card KILLS under Linux)
    Gentoo Linux 64-bit
    Saitek Eclipse 2 KB
    Kensington Ci80 Wireless Mouse

    Hope to wow you guys with the mod, color scheme borrowed from the Zero-Carb Rockstar.

    Pics to come soon

    (BAD CAMERA PHONE SHOT)

    first quick shot of getting the case naked. Also: My cat will NOT be in the modded case. She appears to be supervising.

    Side panels are off
    Plastic parts removed from the inside
    Doors removed from front
    Port cover on top is off
    ATX rear panel is off

    Opinions welcome:
    Plexi on window to be replaced with hex modder's mesh painted flat black to match the side panel, want it to look factory. Also, may cut the curved lines out of the window, but a lot of Armor owners seem to do that.

    What do you guys think?

    I plan to route water cooling through an actual can. not a res since the cheap alum would corrode so bad. Also, I am planning to use a LED meteor light with a slow pulse to simulate the drink "charging" my PC. Hopefully it gets me in the good graces of the Rockstar staff, free caffiene is great! The coolant will be tinted to the color of zero carb Rockstar , with clear tubes to show the "Rockstar drink" flowing to my components. Spotlighting will be used to show off the logos on the can.

    Right now the chassis is taped off, and ready for paint! side panel plexi has been punched out, and the inside of the panel is painted atm.
    By the end of the day the chassis and panels should be painted, with pics of before/after.

    Modder's mesh is on order from Mnpctech http://www.mnpctech.com/moddersmesh.html
    Sleeving for the PSU from Xoxide: http://www.xoxide.com/techflex2.html

    Nice job with the painting, and it looks like a promising mod. I've never heard of a husband/wife tag-team case mod, but it sounds like a good idea.
