System Specs:
  • intel core 2 duo E6400, 8 gb of ram, nvidia 512 MB, 2 hd 500 wd.
Performed Mods:
I have also adapted 2 old dvd cases for housing a hard drive (this is best seen in the video), I also made feet for a vertical and horizontal position, this HP is a convertible or you can position it vertically or horizontally by moving the DVD player, I really enjoyed doing it and I even paired an old ibm keyboard that was perfect for this squared houses. I did not pay much attention when I painted, because I wanted a distressed effect..
Special Tools Used:
  • military paint, forest green, white,
  • acrylic paint, brown and silver.
I had this pc as a gift, and I had the idea of doing military style it for a new life, the lines were perfect for this project.

Nice. Love the horizontal position. Looks like some old mobile unit.

I've got Corsair C70 btw.. but your mod is much cooler.

Nice build, the stencil looks familiar.
Perhaps a luggage handle riveted on the top to complete it?

It could be an idea but I prefer to keep it that way ..

this case was designed by the factory for the horizontal position too, I took advantage of this possibility, I would be curious to see your mod.
