Hi all. Just joined here and looking forward to seeing lots of cool mods.
I wanted to start a work log on my HP case that I am modding. My first attempt at it as well.
Thought I would just get the ball rolling with a couple shots and then add more as I have time. I got interested in modding through gaming. I realized how lame stock computers were at high quality gaming and it just went from there.
I though I would start by just upgrading my current computer to work better. It is alright, but just a totally stock HP Pavilion.
I upgraded the PSU first with the addition of a Corsair HX650. Tossed out the Bestec 250w, what a little joke that was. Then came some RAM. 16GB of Crucial Ram, up from 4GB. Then a descent GPU was needed, so I put in a MSI GTX660 and a Zalman LQ320 H2o CPU cooler and Wow! what a nice change. Can actually game now and have some fun.
I though why stop there? I have experience with tools and have a shop so why not case mod as well? Off I went.
Stripped out goods setup so I can still use it.
The case after I completely stripped it of paint. I realize I could have just scuffed it up but I wanted the full experience of Primer/Paint/Color coat.
Here is the first mod I did completed in fab stage...a copy of a MNPCTech Blowhole, but mine is 92mm. Jig saw and 18TPI blade makes quick work of this thin metal. Drill the 8 holes, file to finish and we are good to go. 92mm Blowhole done! Next comes the aluminum flange.
Got to run for now. I will be back soon and continue the story. Glad to be here and hope to see some nice work. I am sure I will. Thanks all.
