New Case!

Hi all,
college just turned into a freebie center. My tutor was giving away ATX cases, just old ones that had been donated and he needed to get rid of because of space issues.

Now, there was a case there that almost looked like an alienware (with a handle, in silver and without all the light crap on the front). I was gonna get that one but someone won me to it (flip of a coin and i lost). But, i managed to pick up a HP Pavillion case. I haven't got it yet, got to pick it up tomorrow but this case is very moddable, and it has a decent front panel.

It is however, beige on the side panels. That has got to go. I'm also gonna try and make a top ducting mod, like the one on the P180. I'm not sure whether i want to cut a window, or simply cut some holes so light shines through, a bit like perforated/mesh aluminium. Or i may just buy a large piece and do both side panels, make it Mac G5 style, but only on the sides.

Something i'm determined to do with this is make it look professional so any ideas are welcome and appreciated.

Thanks,
Scott.

Oh, yeah. You're at college now. Congrats!

Our college tends to have a computer fair every 2 weeks in the sports centre. I haven't been yet, but I've been told there's some neat stuff there.

But to get one for free; that's just awesomeness. Lucky j00z!

AP: Case modding is a religion. Without pictures, the prophecy shall not be fulfilled. Of course we need pictures!
