I plan to get on that short list...
Just went through this thread fully and I'm adding another "nice work" to the crowds of groupies you have here.
Makes me consider sending you the beige case of death I have in my basement for MKmods love; it was my first PC and I can't make myself throw it out
I sold my 8800GTs yesterday and installed my 9600GT with the passive cooling..
LOL, it is 4C cooler than the 8800GTs were (it is running 36C right now)
I bought it for my 24/7 comp and I just noticed they had a rebate today. Im ordering another right now.
I know people see ECS and go "no way" but I have bought 6 of the 8800GTs and now 1 of the 9600GT and every one has worked just fine and the temps are EXCELLENT!
thats funny how the passive one is actually running cooler, should have some good performance out those two
this is art
Don't be calling this man an art fart
It's a great mod nonetheless
LOL, thanks guys.
thank you for the revive. glad i didn't miss this.
Welcome to TPU Lamil
We need fanart of this stuff
Even after so long of seeing that pic, it still amazes me.
MK you've inspired me
Me and my mate are thinking of doing something like this to a crappy cheap case as well.
Thanks FAXA for dropping by and have fun.
That case is just sick and awesome! Someday I hope my case mods can be within your ranks, again, awesome case.
So dare I ask, after the $20 for the case... how much money did you dump into it make it look like that? awesome case though!
since its a prototype it wasent cheap. The idea was to show how a few things (mods) could help any case.
When doing a prototype mod there are many of extra hours getting airflow right, making places for wiring and fitting all the parts to work together.
I am doing a couple cases for Nvision08, 1 is a air cooled (or dual rad) with filtering of the air.
The second case is a triple rad version.
Those are going to be designed for anyone looking to buy a pre modded case. There is a lot more work on making them more useable (slide out DVD, HDDs)
And thanks Gilletter for stopping by.
im now download all pages of your work mk , it like a learn book for case mod
What do you generally charge for something like that? Gotta be a pretty penny since I'm sure it takes a LOT of time, any real piece of art takes time... and time IS money. Wish I had the time and effort to do that
There is too much work involved in modding to make money. The time involved is just too much...Than factor in Dremel Wheels, drill bits, rivets, metal, paints, hole saws and on and on...
The reason for this mod was to show you guys/girls that it dosent matter if you have a $300 case or a $19 one, a few mods to your case can make a big difference.
Thank you hayder.master
yeah... I'd go through about 10 cases before I could live with one... I'm so critical in what I do, I want it to be perfect, so I'd cut it a bit too much and have to start over
I've got a $40 case from newegg from Apevia (X-gear) and it suits me just fine... except I want to put like 4 more fans on it, just cause there's room lol
Hm... I really enjoyed this log. I was thinking about the same thing: getting a cheap case and make it shine. I just need to find one here that looks like this one. I always liked that style in the front of the case...
the Centurion 5 from CM is a very good basic case, and thanks
Well I just got this case back yesterday (traded one of my older SFF cases for it) and I thought I would re-mod it a bit with a few of my new ideas.
Here is a shot of it right now, notice the paint is still very nice, Pretty cool for spray paint.
Ok the cooling with this case was very nice. Now I am trying to wring out every ounce there is. Here is the rear panel
I really want air to enter through the front and exhaust the rear so I am removing every piece that will slow it down or cause turbulance
Woot! Rock it out MK, I'll be off in my voyuer corner enjoying myself
