To view this case mod, go here.



Specs:
Foxconn SLI board, Intel E6850, MSI 8600GTS, 2GB of g-skill DDR2 800 or 1066 whatever score's and overclock's higher.

Mods:
Cut two 120mm holes in front of case and fiberglass two fan ducts for Turbine fans. cut mobo tray for wire management, cut 120mm in bottom of case for second SLI card to breath, Cut 140mm hole above power supply for a custom hard drive cage, Cut 120mm hole in top of case for hard drive cage, Cut 92mm fan hole in back under power supply , moved and changed power and reset switches. Still have some more mods left to do and will update as I go.

I've had this case for about 8 years and alway wanted to mod it this way, so instead of buying a new case I will go crazy on this one and see how it turns out.

Hey Steelkane, nice looking mod you've got going there. I'm wondering why you didn't post this in the Project Log section of the forums? I, myself, am currently working on a case mod for my daughter. I am posting my progress in the project log. I only say this because I think it's kiind of difficult to rate the mod as it is currently incomplete. Just a suggestion....

Point taken, and I will do just that, I wasn't looking for a score just yet but just showing what I have done so far. Thanks
