[Case Gallery] Rust bucket

Discussion in 'Case Mod Gallery' started by Johnynoi, Nov 18, 2005.

    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    AMD Athlon 64 3000+ @2.6GHz
    ATI X800GTO @ 560/570
    ASUS K8N4 -E Deluxe
    Danger Den Maze 4 equipped watercooling

    Mods:
    Side and top windows/frames, custom front panel, partially external watercooling and a paint job

    This is my first attempt at a big mod, and still needs a bit of work to the interior and the power/reset switches need a little more attention.

    I concur, some people are not appreciating the effort put into it.

    nice mod
  16. Troublemania Guest

    Lol good one b, I respect anyone who can buy parts and put together a sophisticated machine such as a computer some people can’t even install a hard drive buddy. Nice case though people who don’t know better would look at it and laugh saying you got an old thing.

    Honestly?

    A+ mod. Creative and fun, and a nice radiator housing worked into the theme. I don't think anyone would mistake it for an old slow PC though, with the obvious watercooling and giant window.

    We need some clearer pics and more of them though, I really want to see the detail pelase!

    Whilst I don't like the look of the final product (just not my cup of tea) I repect the amount of work that has gone into this.

    Good work Johnynoi :)

    Good work there, looks really good, and it's definately an interesting idea.
    I'd love to see some more shots, of interior and stuff.

    Anyhu, I'll give it an 8.

    I Like Your Rusting Effect

    good job!!! I've done a similar mod, check out my BIOHAZARD thread.

    http://forums.techpowerup.com/showthread.php?t=58644


    I've done the same type of rusting effect. I was wondering how you did yours? I really like how you did the seams and around screws and such.

    did you paint the effect or was it a weathering compond?

    again, great job.

    I rated it 9/10. For advanced creativity and overall execution.
    Looks Great! I'm really digging the weathered look it seems to be the new case fashion.
