Time for a new mod.

Project: Cuda 440

Image

This is a present for my Brother-In-Law who is a HUGE mopar fan. He's been drooling ever since I built SuperbeePC for his parents.

In the same spirit as Superbee, my Brother in law does not know!!

The specs thus far are:

Foxconn A74MX
AMD Phenom 9150e
4GB DDR2-800

Video card and Hard drive are still unknown

Alrighty, the victim case is the Orange In-Win F430 (review coming soon!)

Image

This vent is the dumest thing ever thought of. It's nearly totally useless, minus it's "cool look"

Image

Fortunately, it comes right off!

Image

This is what you're left with

Image

Here's where I'm cutting. This case needs a window with an intake fan, not a vent

Image

The drive bays have a bit of mesh on them, but not the see through kind

Image

I've already taped off the panel where the window will go

Image

And painted the bays. I'm not sure what I'm going to have besides a DVD drive, so the painting is "just in case"

Image

I put the bays back in, for now.

Image


TGS:twisted:

More done.

I added the first DVD drive. I say that because there may be more

Image

I got my Motherboard

Image

And added the Phenom x4 9150e

Image

Here's the 500GB My Book I got at Office Depot for $39!!

Image

And in the flesh

Image

There were no obvious screws so I had to pry it open

Image

And there you go, a 500GB internal SATA drive

Image

I cut out the window too. I will clean it up tomorrow night as today is Sci-Fi Friday

Nice themed touch. Maybe chrome the headers on that baby?

Now to do something with the right panel

Image

I taped off my work surface

Image

It's gonna look a hell of a lot better than this, but it helps me visualize the goal

I received my fender logo. Oh, and it's real not a reproduction

Image

Here's where it's going

Image

These are the marks for where I'm drilling the holes. I'd love to do it today, but my wife is off work and doesn't want me near it.

I got the 4GB (2x 2GB) of RAM

Image

And the Coolermaster V8 heatsink

Image

It's pretty damn BIG!

Image

Here's about where it'll be in the case

Image

I padded the bottom to simulate a motherboard underneath. And as you can see it's still about a half inch from where the panel window will be.

You're getting much better as you progress my friend! If you look at past "attempts" to this one...you're looking good man!

Big kudo's I hope. I know I don't post a lot over here...but you're doing some good work man.

Now if we can just deal with that AMD thing you have...
