My first casemod

My first casemod.

Everything started when I found my old crappy and slow computer. It looked like this,

and it were very slow.
I wanted to mod it some way, and then I got a great idea. What would it look, if I cover the old case with shiny black plexiglass, put it to horizontal plane, and add a openable window to the top? In my mind it looked so great, that I marched right away to the shop which sells plexiglass, and bought that much I need. At home, I started to cut the plexis to the right size, and made two holes to the front panel. One for CD-ROM, other one for a fan. So everything were shaped to right size, I decided to glue it up with black silicon. It did sound good, and actually, it worked good.

The glueing in progress.

So when everything were on their place, I decided to do something to the old hardware.

The old specs were:
MOBO: Abit AB-BH6
CPU: Intel Pentium II 400MHz
GPU: Matrox Millenium G200
RAM: 256Mb SDRAM
HD: 14Gb WesternDigital

Yes, veeeeeery very slow. The computer are in web browsing use, so I bought more memory, 512Mb more, altogether 768Mb. Next thing was a new hard-drive, a 20Gb SeaGate.
After that my friend sold me his old GPU, Nvidia Geforce2 MX400.

Now I got power for internet browsing, and nice case where to put that all.

Here's some pictures from the caseproject finished:

Looks nice, huh?

And the new specs are:
MOBO: Abit AB-BH6
CPU: Intel Pentium II 400MHz
GPU: nVidia GeForce2 MX400 64Mb
RAM: 768Mb SDRAM
HD: 14Gb WesternDigital and 20Gb SeaGate

I hope you liked this project. Have fun modding mates!

17.02.2008 09:48 JapalaLooks bit like an overhead projector without the mirror arm. :) Because of that, you could try something like this: http://metku.net/index.html?path=mods/coloured_appliques/index_eng . Perhaps frost the plexi with sandpaper too... ideas ideas... :)
