Default MKmods.. Case Gallery

I was on here quite a while ago and honestly cant remember why I wandered away. Aspire mentioned that he had a work loge here and when I stopped by I notice I had 242 posts, lol..

Well the last couple of years have been good to me so I will pass on a few of the mods I have done.

Here is an Ultra Aluminus I did


This is an Antec Atlas Server case. I flipped the mobo (fake BTX) and made a special PS for it


Here are a few SFF cases I designed. They are small enough to completely fit inside a Qpack case using ATX mobos with SLI




This one was made from Perforated alum and CarbonFiber


One of the reasons for the lack of visible wiring (I cheat, lol)

Ah, I didn't notice that. I would like to take a stab at that too. Mind putting up a tutorial?

lol...And you didn't cheat. That's the beauty of modding.

I re designed a PC Power & Cooling PS for the little red mod. I was all excited how cool it worked and when I showed the Co. they freaked..(they didnt want others to get the idea you could disassemble a PS, liability stuff)

PM me and I will pass on a few tips.

I have done it many times (screwed up once, poor DFI Expert mobo) it does take a good knowledge of soldering.

i've done soldering before ( couldn't spell it to save my life. lol) and I know how to do it. just put down some of the stuff that clears off the metal, and then just solder the wire to the back of the 24-pin power slot with a bit of the metal wire.

anything more to it then that?

also what did you do to the psu?

Here are my soldering tips (Not gonna help ur chances at a RMA so be careful)
first tip is get a soldering station,
This is the one I got
Amazon.com: Weller Soldering Station, WLC100, 120V, 40W: Home Improvement
makes things so easy
easy to adjust power of soldering iron
place to put it while between soldering
changeable tips are really handy for small work

also get a tip cleaner
Soldering Iron Tip Cleaner
the fancy tips have a coating and if you sand or file them it wrecks them.

Than some rosin core solder.

I clean the part I am going to solder with lacquer thinner than a small nylon brush on the dremel (careful not to grind the surface of the mobo)

Than I take the soldering tip and add just a tiny bit to the contacts on the back side of the mobo first.

Than I put a bit of soder to the tips of all the wires (just a bit)

That I touch the wire to the contact, heat it with the soldering iron for just 1 or 2 secs and voila.

Clean the tip after every soldered joint, if the tip is dirty it takes a lot longer to solder the joint and that can overheat the mobo and mess up.

PS try it on a cheap mobo first, I am so fricken sad I wrecked my DFI Expert mobo.

As to what I do to the PSs, basically I re design the outputs to match up with my comp.

I'm trying it on a spare socket 370, I have knockin' around.

I'm sure with the PSU, he takes off the end cover, and separates the wires. Unless I'm missing something.
