    Hey guys,

    Well, i'm modding again. This time it's a Lanbox. This isn't as extreme as MKMods' projects, but it'll be fun.

    I'm looking to make an mATX rig that i'll later sell. I have all the initial stuff.

    Specs:
    Now, as for what i'm doing:
    I want input, so let rip.

    Oh, and thanks to:

    Mind the beast of an 8800GTS (G80) doesnt get too hot in there.

    Also why you doing it up and selling it on TPU :confused:

    Most guys here would do their won mods, I dont see many full builts get sold on here.

    And what do you mean by UV Windows??

    Only an idea. I'll probably sell it locally.

    I mean UV Plastic instead of the clear plastic on it now.

    Look forward to seeing the mod, oh and you have to get a red led fan for the front. It looks so much like a robot mouth, lol.

    Right, just spoke to the Mother and shes bringing me some Pimer and Gloss Black home with her. Spraying should be done by tomorrow.

    I need UK links to some 60mm and 90mm Red LED Fans. And maybe a Red LED CPU Cooler (Low).

    AH I see you got the case then :)

    Glad it arrived in one piece. As a BTW, the Arctic Freezer 7 pro wont fit in that case with the power supply in.

    And 8800GTS's dont get too hot in there providing the airflow on the fans are alright.

    Not sure they'll work..
    I can't find 60mm LED fans, Red ones are miles away... lol.

    I may put my HD4830 in, if i don't sell it.

    Ok, everything got primer on it now. Nice weather, so it'll dry quickly and i can move it. Looks good already.

    couldnt you mod the back plate so you can fit 80mm fans? im sure you could get those alot easier than 60mm ones, not that hard with a set of tin snips and a drill either (edit if they fit that is).

    i would also think about matching the colour of the handle and the front grill with maybe the mobo tray to give a contrast to the black.
