I'm preparing to mod a case from an old Compaq, and I'd appreciate some ideas from you guys. It will be my first mod.

Image That's obviously not my picture, but its the same case. Sorry, my camera is mysteriously missing.[/img]

What do you wanna do to it? or is that what you want ideas for?

toss on a plexi glass side, some black lights...

Oh, you can drill holes in the front bezel and install some LED's

I want to do something semi unique but I suppose it wouldn't be unique if the ideas were fed to me.

looks like it could use more lighting. maybe some more fans to dress it up and provide cooling, as well. can;t go wrong with lights.

Choose a paint scheme first. Then decide what you're going to do with that front panel. I had one of those cases too and could not think of anything to do with it.

that big old front bezel would accomodate a turbine nicely. seems like all Compaq cases have a big boring front bezel in common.
