Default My Modded Antec 900

If you want, post pictures of yours, too Here's mine:

Everything ready to be painted:


Holes Drilled


Tower Painted:


HDD Racks painted:



Everything back inside, cables routed:


Cables tucked away:


Side panel on:


After this picture I cleaned the acrylic side panel, no more smudges

Tell me what you think took about three days, the paint took quite some time to dry.

Thanks Turns out the paint on the cables wasn't going to dry.. ever (some kind of chemical on the wires or something..).. so I just went ahead and rebuilt it. I was going to just tape the wires up, but my brother suggested I paint the cables, too, so I went ahead and did that. Didn't turn out so well on that part, but it wasn't too bad

I cleaned my cables with alcohol and then I painted them Black with a permanent marker. They turned out pretty good.

Good job.

The 900 really does look good with the inside black.

Can you get a nice shot of the inside? gotta see the cabling...

WIsh I would have drilled another hole for the SATA cables.. but it's good enough for me. The only thing stopping me from running them through the hole with the 24pin is the fact that they're too short

EDIT: I Swear I hit that Edit button.. sorry, double post

The only thing I don't like is see up there in the top right? the curly looking things that hang down? My brother messed up using the dremel or whatever it's called.. I can't see it normally, so I'm fine.

Thanks!
