Performed Mods:
Mods: -Front bezel: toggle switches added,carbon fiber,crystal display made to fit and covered with carbon fiber vinyl. Stealth drived the dvd burner, and created a stealth drive Ipod holder out of a gutted cd burner. Added a 5mm clear green HD LED. Front grills cut behind mesh to increase airflow. -Window panels: Custom water cut side panel with green uv acrylic and modders mesh held together by double sided adhesive tape. Integrated 3 red laser diodes to the panel that run off a single 9volt battery. The Predator text reads "Got Alien?". Other windows was laser etched and all screws painted black to match the paint. -Back Panel: Everything was painted to match the rest of the case, including power supply grill(s) and every screw on the back of it. I vouched for copper pop rivets because it gave it a nice clean look and matches the case feet. Back grill was cut off to increase air flow. -Top Panel: Custom painted by my friend Joey Montoya (call for contact information) aswell as the rest of the case, minus the cage and everything but panels. Custom 120mm blowhole was added along with gromets and u-window molding. -Inside Case: Custom cut to hide wires and send them through the motherbpard tray. Built in the waterpump mount with your everyday bolts and screws. Exsisting hard drive rack was removed to make room for tubing and hard drive moved up to 3 1/2" floppy drive. Crystal display was fit by drilling holes and mounting that thing was a pain. Cage painted metallic black and sound retention foam added to motherboard tray, and fit throughout the computer. Custom green acrylic Apogee waterblock shield. Drive fitted with carbon fiber vinyl. Excellent wire management for all that is being powered in this PC. -Water Cooling: Everything on this computer is Swiftech minus the PrimoChill waterpump. Swiftech, Apogee CPU block, MCW-60 VGA block, MCW-30 Chipset block, two Swiftech radiators 1 80mm, and 1 120mm. All pulled together with Danger Den 1/2 ID and OD tubing. You might ask how i got this to work with a PrimChill? It wasn't easy but i bought thr correct fitting for a 3/8"ID to 1/2"ID. So what you have is a small piece of 3/8" tubing running into the PrimoChills waterpump but exiting into 1/2"ID tubing. These are just a few of the mods that were done to this PC that i can remember as of now.
Took a Kingwin 424 and ran along way with The Predator theme. The Predator text reads "Got Alien?" on the side panel for those who might be wondering. Check it out if you have the time, and vote to let me know what you think. Also feel free to leave comments. You can reach my contact at

I think perhaps the smoke would look a lot better if it was only around the base of the case and not up in the air. Sweet theme though, green is my favorite color :D

yea the smoke is just dry ice. Its only there to highlight the lasers. I tryed it at the base but it was not that great. Could barely see it :/ Thanks for the compliments though everyone.
