Info: This is my first pc to build. It was an interesting experience. The case isn't heavily modded by any means. I bought a $30 case (including 300 watt ps) and added a $15 dollar window and a $6 led fan. Unfortunatly only one side of my case is silver which looks rather akward. I would like to paint it. (Any tips?)
Inside the beast:
Intel Celeron 1.7ghz (P4 2.8ghz coming after xmas)
Albatron 865PE PRO
768mb PC2100 (thinking about changing to 1GB PC3200)
Powercolor Radeon 9800 Pro 128mb
Thermaltake Spark 7+ hsf
1 30gb and 1 80 gb hd
24x CD-RW

The side w/ lights on, definately shows signs of needing cable organization

The side in the Dark, I'm going to add a cold cathode, should I stick with blue or go with red or green

Hey, I'm Paxim from Xtremods.com and I built a system in this exact same case in January '03. Take a look at Paxim's Gallery at Xtremods.com to see what I did to my case. IMHO it looks alot better than this one. BTW-this is the first time EVER that I've seen ANYONE else with my same case(not to mention, modded it)
:)

Wiring is awful....

Ok, I stealthed my CD Drive and i'm going to buy a new power supply. Does anyone know if the ASPIRE Turbo Case 520 watt ATX-AS520W 12V is good. I've read good reviews on a similar one from the same company, except it is the acrylic one and is 500watts. Also I'm planning on sleeving the power cables when I get it and I'm ditching my homemade round cables for some real ones.(Do the cheap one make a difference?) Thanks for all the comments.

ya. how did you get your window cutting so clean. i was about ready to pay someone to cut the window for me thats how much it pissed me off. other than that great case. you should stealth the drives

Happy modding

The window cutting looks really good, I had majot probs the first time, gj. You pointed out any other probs one might have with it (paint, wires) I may be interested in some 2100 later for my folding comps. PM me.

gunak87 commented on 2003-12-10 22:00:00 that:
Thanks for the tips. I'd love for you to send me some tips on painting. Also, if anyone wants to buy 768mb of PC2100 I'll be selling some sometime after x-mas.

I would like to make a note that in the picture there is a PCI graphics card installed instead of a 9800 PRO as described. It's because the fan on the heatsink broke and I had to send it back to get it replaced. The PCI card is just a stand-in for now.

Special_K commented on 2003-12-09 22:00:00 that:
