UPDATE: My friend has it, and is she very happy. She's named named it Utena after one of her favorite anime heros. I like the name : P
A much needed upgraded for my friend. More or less threw $300 at some leftover odds and ends and came up with this. I convinced her to let me go a lil over the top on the cosmetics and allowed me UBER cable management time. Kept it as clean and simple as I could. Hope she likes it.
So part choices came from what we had between a few friends.
Small list of case mods: Moved the middle drive cage to be reused as a cable shroud on the bottom of the case. mounted the ssd sideways on the side of the 5.25" bays got a bracket to put the 3.5" drive in a 5.25" slot to free up the middle cage. (now all sata power and drives are in one place. Happy cables)
Added white grippy handles (bolted in)
Lots of acrylic to hind cables, pcbs and such.
A lil stenciling and paint on the gpu and wifi back plates.
white LED fans White 24 pin and sata power
all in the add on's (including fans and cables) cost about $75 Ya that's about it. You don't need a fortune to have a sexy PC.
I hope this inspires more people to put some thought into how their PC looks. To me it's just part of what makes it special : P
