I enjoy seeing pictures of other's rigs and case mods, so I'm creating a thread for anyone who wants to to post pictures of their rigs and cases, and answer/ask and questions anyone might have. I'll start.

Just you wait till I get home! :x
EDIT:
O.K. - I'm home.

I took some pics with my phone, but the quality is pretty poor. There is a new camera in the near future though!

These three are the best. None of the ones with the lights off came out. :(

It's nothing special in this picture, but it looks better now. Too bad I don't have a camera though. :cry:  Broken. :oops: 




May 14, 2007 11:17:42 PM

Some cool rigs there.

I've also been waiting for this thread seeing as I just installed everything in a new case:

Here is my rig. I need to convince my parents to get a better camera, this one doesn't focus to well.

That TT120 looks MASSIVE in your rig! 8O It would be interesting to see how much of a cooling difference replacing that rear 80mm fan with a 120m fan would make on case/CPU temps. You have the PSU exhausting from the top, too, but if you a 120mm placed to cover as much area on the TT120 as possible...
May 15, 2007 4:46:18 AM

Yeah, The TT120 is huge to start off with. My case isn't the biggest. I would have been better off getting the Ttarmour. There isn't even a 1/4" clearance between the side panel and the TT120.. It was a close fit. I can't fit an 120mm in the back. But i do have a high rpm Thermaltake fan. It can move about 75cfm. But when it is moving that air, my temps only change by about 1 or 2c. My cores stay around 25c idle and 35c load. My ambient gets about 45c under load though. But i have a total of 3 80mm fans and a 120mm in the front.
May 15, 2007 5:16:41 AM

It isn't much, but this is my first rig pic post... more coming soon after I take better pics...

May 15, 2007 10:12:24 AM

Pah! Take a look at this beauty!




Ahem, the shame of it. Anyone recommend a good case (that can take a beating)? :lol: 
May 15, 2007 10:44:49 AM

What did you do to that poor pc? Looks like you need a vault as a pc case.

you might be on to something there... :p 
May 15, 2007 11:29:41 AM

I've had this pc a while and been slowly upgrading most of it, except the ultra sh*tty MSI motherboard which reallly does stink and has caused me much frustration (as you can probably see).

I call the case "The ACME Air Vent 6000" with self removing front panel feature and integral fist indents tm (patent pending) :lol: 

Great idea to make it from a vault. Anyone lend me some cutting gear to make holes for fans? Or maybe I could make it out of bricks?

I dont have any real pictures so this is the best I could do.

I second that. That's a sweet looking rig!
May 15, 2007 2:19:33 PM

Indeed, very nice rig.


I have 2 3.5" bays that are empty and just begging for some sort of mod. I think I'm going to build a grill or something to cover the opening, turn it into a fanless intake. I'll put some picture up when I'm done.
May 15, 2007 8:55:35 PM

Here is my new built PC, haven't done the WM yet, and I am changing out all the stock fans in a few days.

Please note my sweet little daughter and her Steelers Outfit!!









May 15, 2007 11:18:56 PM

Very nice, I like that case.

So as promised, here's my mini-mod I did this afternoon.

Problem: 2 open 3.5" drive bays.
What I don't have: Money.
What I do have: an old car speaker grill, an extra fan grill, some rubber cement, some tin snips and a brain.

So I got to thinking last night on how to fill that gap, looked around my room for awhile, and came up with this mod:





Not the cleanest mod, but it works and it looks pretty damn good if I do say so myself. It's actually functional too, air is sucked in by the two back fans.
May 15, 2007 11:40:50 PM

Your gonna need a bigger power supply with that mod. That old car speaker grill came from a '48 Plymouth I believe. You need one of those sun visors from a '53 Chevy on there. Or at least tinted glass. I'm going to post pics of my rig when Cannon sends back my Power Shot 300. Manufacturer defect. I'm expecting the good people over there to send me a better model with a little more power to it's shot. Mine took great blanks and I'm sure you don't want me to bore you to death with those 100% blacked out shots. Your case looks good with the rubber cement and all. I'll post my mine soon.
May 16, 2007 4:42:47 AM

My gf didn't bring her camera as promised last night. Couldn't take pics yet... :cry:  I'll get it tonight coz I'm going to her.

Please tell me you've done something to better the airflow in your case by now :o 

I'll get some pic's of my setup on here soon :D  Mines not blingy, but it's clean and simple how I like it. Keep all the sweet pics coming ppl I love it!

RTFM,
Kick the dog, not the case when you get beat in a game.
May 16, 2007 9:04:44 AM

Nice colours really, it makes for a change. I don't know why but most fan case with led end up being blue. I know there are other colours out there but they are not used that often.
May 16, 2007 9:05:28 AM

I get mine from eBay, but any computer hardware site will have LED fans. Just do a Google search.
May 16, 2007 5:58:54 PM

Anyone know if there are yellow LED fans, and Yellow Cathiods?

I usually get my modding stuff from Frozen CPU. Their prices are very similar to Newegg (with what they share as merchandise) but they specialize in custom mod gear.

Nesting?















What?!
May 18, 2007 1:00:05 AM

Well, it would seem my rig doesn't hold a candle to the majority of yours. Then again, the dust and wires don't help either. Here are some pics, specs in sig:



Here is another:



And a picture of the insides:



These pictures remind me that I need to clean up my room...
