Hi guys, I am working hard on my 3rd mod, but this will be the first one I ever posted. So please bear with me, sometimes I forget to take a lot of pictures.It will be a modified ThermalTake level 10-GT case.
I am not good at all with Sketchup so I am unable to show you my plans, besides they tend to change as I sleep and wake up in the middle of the night with ideas.
I am disabled and this affords me loads of time to work on my projects, however the downside (besides my pain) is lack of funds to simply throw loads of money at a mod, bolt it together, and say whala! So I am forced to improvise. Yard sales, thrift shops etc for materials. I like this approach. I believe a "mod" should show someone's creativity, not their wallet. (maybe I believe this because I am poor)
The case will be completely repainted inside and out.
Asus P8P67 DELUXE MB
16 gigs OCZ Ram
160 Gig Vertex 2 SSD
2Tb WD Green Data Drive
ATI 6950 (flashed to 6970) 2G
Standard Lite-On DVD/CDrom recorder
Touch 2000 Fan controller.
Media card Reader
ThermalTake TR2 RX 850 PS
Hyper 212+ CPU cooler.
Water cooling is in the works. But as you guys know... not cheap. I need a 6 inch Vertical tubular Reservoir pretty quick because it fits into the mod and has to be put in before I have it painted.
This is the case tore down, sanded and primed the plastic parts so far.
Guess what these are for...
Crazy game of Pac man anyone?
They are being used for this;
They are not attached yet, nor are they finished. I am replacing them with a thicker Acrylic. They add a unique look to the right front corner of the case, to blend in with the rest of the motif. Don't mind the color of the face plate, it isn't staying that color. I wanted to test how metallic paints would turn out. Horrible
These will be the feet of the case.
I had so much fun making those.....out of old pens. The plastic was cut from an old serving tray lol.
This is the cheapest way to do things, which involves tons of extra work. These too will get a dose of thicher 1/8th plexi.
That's all for now guys, I promise I will take a lot more quality pictures as I go. I keep looking for a Sketchup of the case but cant find one. and I would rather be messing in my garage instead of learning how to make a TT case in Sketchup. Second thought, maybe I will, because I would like to enter this in TT's mod contest of this case.
Hi again guys. I still don't have a name for this dang mod, if you guys have any siggestions.. please let me know lol
Next up I cut out the right side panel. I have Louvers I will put down the front side to help air flow to hard drive bay. The rest will be plexi which will cause me to have to do one hell of a fantastic job on the wiring so it shows (not sure ifI am that good or not, we shall see lol )
Then I started in on the left side panel. Relocating the fan lower, and putting in a larger window.
If you guys have anything you would like to see in this mod, let me know. Nothing is written in stone yet.
I have a bunch of photos in my camera i need to shrink and post, possibly tonight.
