    To view this case mod, go here.

    [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Specs:
    2.8ghz Celeron D, 64mb nvidia gforce 4(overclocked as far as possiable) 1gig ddr ram. 80gig hd. dvdrom and cdrw. SoundBlaster Audigy 2 Zs

    Mods:
    All case fans are connected into a toggle switch to toggle them between 5v and 12v. I removed the fan from the intel heatsink and turned it into a hard drive cooler. I attacted fan onto nvida graphics card and replaced the thermal paste on it

    I had to build this for as cheap as i could, Came to about £250. This is the first pc that i have built from scratch.

    A good start. Perhaps a bit of cable routing to hide them from the window. Love the fans on the GFX and HDD.

    I am thinking about getting rid of the ide cables and using sata. I would need to get a couple of ide to sata adapter for my hard drive and optical drive. I could cable wrap the rest of the cables as well.

    Cool idea. Does that work?

    Anyone? Not that I'm worried.

    I have sata hard drives and rounded ide cables for my DVD-RW.

    Not that it makes any difference. I have no windows in my case :p

    OMG! Cables! I gave you a 7. Don't like the wiring job, case is fine, even the blue.

    Good job for a first try. I remember my first couple of comps ended up in the garbage.. Yours is a lot nicer than my first. Keep up the good work.

    YAY, my m8 finally posted his rig!

    That toggleswitch on the fan's working ok then i see? *Cough* Stolen from my rig :p

    Hmm, I like the intel fan on the hard drive though, i've never seen that before.

    That is the best use for an intel fan, I even wired it into the toggle switch
