Hey guys. After viewing all the awesome mods and scratch built cases on OCAU i figured i might as well jump into the mix. . I've been a bit of a lurker around OCAU for quite some time now, but have only just signed up to be a part of the community officially. This is my first case mod adventure so dont hurt me too much The victim is a Coolermaster HAF 932 Case. This one in fact After reviewing the stickies and worklogs of the elite currently on OCAU this project is intended to build myself a kick ass system and get input from the community on how to make it stand out. So i'm very VERY open to any experimental mod for those too scared to rip their own case apart to test. I have 5 other cases to try various bits and pieces to test their functionality before transferring them to the HAF. So ask away! Heres roughly what i plan to do 1. Paint case 2. Design and build a LED/FAN/Cathode circuit 3. Completely remove the DVD Drive 4. Substitute something sparkly and pretty to occupy the 6 5.25" bays ( was thinking 2x fans and a lumin disk) 5. Remove unused cables from the system 6. Cable sleeve everything 7. Fix the boring side panel (similar to the Killzone 2 case) 8. Possibly replace the mesh side panel with an etched graphic (still looking for a suitable design) 9. more stuff So at the moment nothing too major. The future intent of this rig is to be overclocked and watercooled (duh!) Currently i'm seriously considering going HD5850 in Crossfire. with a i7 920, 12gb ram (wanted 24gb but its way too dam expensive). So far i've been practicing with the Dremel 300. Using a design i found on deviantart, I cut it into one of the practice case side panels. Here are some pics. The mouth was meant to have jagged teeth but seems i can't get that kind of detail with the dremel. Just need to file/sand away the rough edges then it'll be ready for some painting. I wanted the interior of my case to be as reflective as it can be so that the UV cathodes/leds reach every part of the case. So short of putting a mirror inside i went out to Bunnings and found some Chrome paint. Just need to sand that panel down and get to it I've also been looking at cable management and lighting control. If its one thing i hate with a passion its messy cables. Same with hoses in watercooled systems where they are just whacked in with no arrangement. So to battle this i've come up with this circuit design (i'm not qn electronics expert btw). Im my mind it seems workable, but i need a second opinion if its 1. safe, 2. correct in terms of wiring, 3. am i crazy?! Heres the PCB layout i'm looking at doing I'll update as more occurs.
