    DB's First Time ... Can You Remember Yours?

    My first (and only) mod ... I know that it's pretty tame compared to the stuff here, but I do like it
    Raidmax Scorpio 868 case (mod done in 2005 (I think))
    ... pretty ugly inside ... first, drill out rivets and disassemble the case and start cutting out the hard drive trays , painting them blue and painting the inside yellow to match the outside of the case

    This is what I started with .. ugly gray

    Cut out the fan holes and installed the first of a total of 8 case fans ...

    cut out the hard drive, & optical drive rack, opened up motherboard tray for cooling ...

    and spent the next month routing, and re-routing the wiring until I got this ...

    Note: this case did NOT have a top window
    a picture of the case side was stretched and narrowed to make a template, the opening was cut by hand with nibbler, and factory hardware obtained from another side window and used on top - outside of case has not been repainted

    OK, what do you do with left over sleeve? ; )

    My list of stuff done ...

    Outstanding mod you did there. I for one won't call that not much, you did a beautimus job on your wiring and cutting the top like you did. You get a capital A for a job well done. Happy Modding to ya.

    Nice cut on top! And I like the way you've hidden those wires too

    Great job

    Thats great. Now you need to attach a holder for either the active noise canceling mic/speaker setup, the Noise canceling headphones, or a nice pair of earplugs to cover that jet noise. XD

    I have ALWAYS thought the wiring is the best I have ever seen!

    Thanks for posting it up DB, was wondering when you where going to do it.

    Thanks guys , I am not a great modder, but I do like to mess with details .. to the point of printing out a life-size pic of my motherboard before I even purchased it and taping it to the tray, just so I could mess with the wiring

    A note on all those fans: 2 are run by the motherboard (top & side) and the 4 front & 2 rear ones are switchable from 12v, to thermal control by the power supply (sounds like 5v) and 2 in hard drive cooler are 5v ... 14 fans in total 8O ... as soon as I get rid of the stock "hair dryer" on the X800XT, it will go back to being very quiet (pics are with my old 9800Pro and Arctic Cooling Silencer)
