Ok, my turn Here is my getto mod case.... Its not fancy like Juneau or *THOR*. Infact I think I will have the most tacky mod case lol. I can't really justify spending two hundred dollars on a case, but sooner or later I'm going have too. Please excuse the cable mess. I bought the extension cables and accessories from Performance-PCs.com so I can cable managed this case but I'm going have to dremel the some part (theres a lip on the other side of the case so I can't run my cables behind the Motherboard tray) And right now, I don't feel like taking out the Motherboard for that. Soo I'm just going to leave it like that untill I get me a new case..
I had this case since 01-02 and it has seen 4 motherboards and upgrades....
The first pic is when I upgrade my GPU to the GTX 280 from a 8800 GT. back then pc's were plain and simple.. As u can see, I had to cut a hole out to get more air flow in.
me playing with add-on PhysX card I wanted to take the PhysX work load off the GTX 280 and use the 8800GT for PhysX
Found out there is a issue in Vista not getting the 2nd card to register cause Vista didn't detect a monitor connected to the 8800GT. I don't have dual monitors so I went around with a VGA plug mod. After a bunch of demos and framerate... the GTX 280 power is more then enought to handle the workload
After playing with PhysX and find out that my card can handle the work, I ditch the idea and here I am today
Made me a side window Plus added 2 fans; one for the GPU and the other for the ram and CPU with removable screen filters.
Wee! it glows
