i have 3 systems,..all p4's...but the 1.7ghz is now with my mom,..so basically that leaves me with just two.

what i use the most is the 2.53ghz, it sits on an asus p4t533-c mobo..all inside a Black Kingwing Aluminum Case(premoded). Green neons..

my first mod(see pic) was the 1.7 pc...it was an "unidentified china made case"....cut the window and made blow holes with a dremel,..then painted it with red and black... i used clear fiber glass for the window since we had an abundant supply around the house during that time..

theres truly a different sense of satisfaction when you mod the case yourself. theres no fun and adventure in buying a premod case.


btw,..is premoded the correct term for already modified cases? or sould it be postmodded?

goodluck with your case, inatey!

Nothing wrong with a pre-mod.. if you've done some work on it yourself.
I'm going to do a cutout and rivet a diamond pattern ali mesh behind it.

I'll be ordering a light strip tomorrow, should look nice.

its probably because the wires are tucked behind or theyre on the other side of the cdrom/drive bays..you cant see it if you look into the window..and this will give you that clean look and enhance air flow.
