After using my lappy for a long time, i decided to build my own desktop, and also with some basic mods, like fans and light tubes.
Just to inform you guys, the 1st part of my thread will show a different casing from the 2nd part of the thread, that is because, after spray painting my spare casing i had, i left it to dry outside my hse, and within 2 hrs, a bangla worker threw it away, thinking it was rubbish!!! (damn tulan), so after that, i bought a cheap casing from slq for abt 25, w/o p.s.
and 1 bad news, i crashed my spare hard which contain previous pictures during the mod, i need to fork out abt 800 bucks to recover back my hard disk!! i will do so, when i save enuf anyway, hehe, so the pics i'll be showing u guys, are not from scratch, sorry guys..
This was a simple plan i made up to design the casing, my plan was to cut a square in one of the side windows and replace it with clear arcylic with fans mounted on it, as you can also see, i made the marking on the side window for cutting, everything was almost complete, until...the bangla ATTACKED!
I bought this yellow light tube from slq, and it came with a on/off switch. After careful planning, i decided on the locations of the light and the switch. To place the switch i had to cut/drill a hole at the back of the casing.
Since 1 of the side windows was going to be mod, i didnt had the other side to be just plain black, so i decided to give it some lines. But the sad part was that, i ran out of yellow and was lazy to get one, so i used orange!!
This is the side window that is abt to have arcylic mounted upon.
And finally, i put all the pieces together, with a new m/b, cpu, ram, hdd, dvd-writer and card reader. (note the point, tat i didnt include a graphic card..not enuf $$..haaiz..), using the onboard graphics..
