This is a re-post. Figured I would start things off with it... Twisted has not received a proper worklog so since I am redoing part of it I thought why not post what I have. (Sorry its bits and pieces).
Seen several pics of ThermalTakes thought I pop a few up of mine .
Original Case Pics.
First mod: Sleeved the cables, and installed the red cathode. Installed the round cables.
Second mod: Lighting the hardcano9 so I could see the display without the lights on in the room. Well it took (4 led's) and a few hours to make work. Got up the next morning and half the display had quit working. Then choose to remod it.
Third mod: Change the THERMALTAKE name on the front. First attempt worked but I wasnt happy with the effect I got from using led's. Wanted to use EL Tape (for lack of a red tape) I had to resort to coiling EL wire behind the name plate.
Fourth mod: After the hardcano died. I cut the faceplate up to mount the new display (pics above), I took out the fan controls and built them into a 5 1/4 drive bay. Pic shows painted drives as well.
Sometime during the process I added a Taz emblem on the window. Also durring the process I replaced the BLUE led (power on) with a RED led to go with my color choice.
Fifth mod: Cut side panel to fit new window in and blasted a new tazz pic on the window, didnt turn out as good as I hoped on the first try, but will on the next. (he appears to be holding onto the handle as he is being blown away by the comp "twister".
Sixth mod: Painted the inside of the case red, rewired all fans with gold wire with the clear red covering.
Seventh mod: Removed the orginal fan holder on the window side, and mounted fans in the bottom of the case.
Will be adding more lights, and more led goodies.
