Cool Case Mod Gallery

I figured we had a wire management gallery and such, why not have a mod gallery, since a good number of people have a modded case.

here's the thread rules.

-Inspiration for Mod

-Theme for Mod

-Toughest part of the Mod

-Favorite part of Mod

Must include high quality pics.

Also before/after pics if possible!!!


sticky when this kicks off maybe

Try a search as we all ready have one of these threads some where around here.

no sense making a fresh thread so the mods can just merge it with the old.

Good idea, pity all of my mods end up in the trash. I suck at painting so no matter what i do it turns out like crap. (the one mod that almost worked was adding a few 120mm holes using a hole saw, turns out my drill press is too buckled to drill straight using hole saws)

My reason for my mod was because my case started as a plane blue $20 special.

Theme was a anodized red, then some "problems" caused a switch to gunmetal/black

Toughest part was removing the epic fail red anodized paint. Then re prepping for the gunmetal/black.

Favorite part was adding with full case window.

Okay, case started out as a blue one of these.


Then the first thing I did was remove the side panel, and replace it with a piece of plexi-glass. I also painted the interior a hammered blue.

A few months later I got bored again and decided to paint the outside. So It became a gunmetal with black bezel and a fade at the bottom.

First Mod


Second mod with too much green


Same thing with some blue


Wire management is now put in place.
