    I try to keep stuff I do for others private but this time I am going to do a log.
    I am building an Alum/Steel Hybrid with the excellent cooling of the Rosewill build but quite a bit more refined.
    To start with I will be using an Enermax Pandora case (I remember when I bought it I loved the name)
    [​IMG]

    I plan on the 2 120mm front fans, completely removing the DVD/Hdd rack and replacing it with a custom alum one. Also replacing the rear of the case and mobo tray with alum panels..Gonna add a side window as well some green lighting.

    Colors will be black with AMD green trim/accents (lol, sorry Intel guys)

    Thanks guys..
    ok I got out the drill and drilled out all the rivets
    [​IMG]

    one thing I didnt like about the case is the mobo tray has no ventilation holes for the back side of the mobo (behind the chipset and CPU can get pretty warm)
    [​IMG]

    Ok Im off to figure how to incorporate the alum panels.

    Looks like another build that is going to be an A+! If you keep going like this, you'll need to start a section here yourself! MKmods corner

    How much do you charge for this type of work?

    Just asking because your work is the bomb.
    Like sending you a 830 stacker and you deck it out the way it's supposed to be.

    I used a pair of compound action tin snips. I have a cheap metal brake (bender) to roll the edges.
    Than I just file the edges to look nice.
    It depends on the person, PM me.

    Im making the DVD./ Hdd rack right now. Picts in a few
