I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas how i can mod this case? i already have quad blue led Fans, audio reactive led bars on the top and bottom, but i need more suggestions, here's the kind of case I've got

only without the ugly handle on top and the window fan is over the videocard.

bump

sorry, I don't have any ideas, that case it pretty much already "pre-modded" (if that;s a word)
it's hard to come up with ideas for cases like that.

Like WR22 said it seems already modded, however the only thing I see that needs to be done is the inside. A nice paint job obviously, maybe a lighting change and obviously some creative wire managment. Other than that I'm done :)

it does seem well out fitted with stuff but i let this sit in my head for the day while i was at school in some very boring classes.

-Window:
--put on an applique,
--etch a design into it,
--or design and cut a peice of metal into a artistic design and liquid nial it to the window.

-Side panel:
--cut out the vent grating along the top and replace with fan covers for a neat look
--add diagonal, horizontal, or vertical strips of shiny metal that will contrast and add to the look of the paint

-Cabling:
--Turn Hard Drives around so that the cables cannot be seen
--Organize the cables neatly

-Other:
--Add LEDs, Cold Cathodes, or UV
--Paint the case, perhaps use florescent paint in the interior of the case if you use UV light.
--If you want a gruesome look, try adding fake blood by mixing red food coloring with epoxy
--Add a recessed bay in the case(perhaps a 5.25'' bay) and put the case buttons into it to hide them from sight
--Stealth your drives if you dont have a bay door

I'd say give it a really nice paintjob with some nice detailing around the 'jet' part of it.

Thanks for all the ideas, i was thinking of some sort of metal cutout on the plexiglass.. but i don't have a pattern. plus the computer store i used to work @ bought a cnc milling machine so im going to make some custom fan grills too.

you dont need a pattern IMO. just freehand a design onto the metal and then cut it out with a dremel or a jigsaw. then take care to smooth it with some 80 grit on a wood block. If you have a friend who is artistic give them a general idea of a design and then just let them work... there are some cool things that come out of that. makes it really unique and one of a kind. just an idea. and i like the idea of making your own fan grilles. Good luck on the project.

cool, so what do you mean by this:
-Side panel:
--cut out the vent grating along the top and replace with fan covers for a neat look
--add diagonal, horizontal, or vertical strips of shiny metal that will contrast and add to the look of the paint
??
could you give me a little more detail. all this thinking is giving me a headache.

heh np...

above and below your side window, you have what appears to be grating for ventilation. you could expand these out to just a bit smaller than a 60mm fan grille. then drill some holes and then bolt on the grilles.

for the strips of metal. it'd just be long flat peices of metal, like diamond plate, cut into strips, for example, 1 inch wide. space them about 1 inch apart so the actual case shows between. then you take those strips and bolt/screw/weld/glue the strips onto the case. the diagonal with a piece of unpainted diamond plate would look a bit like black and silver metal caution tape.
