Well, I chose this Case b/c I like Big cases for one, Has great air flow now, and plenty of room for other Case Mods. However I'm not great at modding & this was a disaster from hell. Even though I only add 2 120mm Fans, the out come was still worth the pain,
7 stitches later and taking a hole saw to the chest, ( Dewalt Jumped ). Was a very costly MOD. In the future will be trying other case Mods, but will have my cousin help since he is a machinist. Lesson here for me, when in doubt, let others help and swallow my pride. I know. I should have cleaned, don't look to hard . If you have any other thoughts on what I could do, please post, after this little mishap, I'm stuck on what to do that I wont hurt my self on, hehe

Thanks guys. I have the other cover. I would paint the silver and put a Mac logo in, But the case isn't worthy yet . Right now I'm trying to figure out how and where to put my 7' LCD in the case. I've got all the bugs worked out, as this isn't going to be a loop LCD. I've connect it to my s-video and going to use it for what ever. Dispaly a Black mac logo, or use as a second display, not sure yet. I know I'm going to run the S-Video and a 12v from inside the case. other than that, it's a matter of where I want it. I seen the G3 or Maybe G4 with the LCD, that what got me thinking, I've had this LCD sitting and collecting dust for over a year now, never even thought about it till now

Well, I found out today keeping your cool is very important when Mods go wrong. I had drawn up a temple for an 80mm fan. Not thinking of a good way to transfer to the case, I thought I could do it free had with a drill bit. I'm very good a drawing and so on, even free hand, though today I found that a drill bit isn't a pencil. In the Pic below you can see how I have my apple sitting for a 80mm ( pulling in air ). I guess if anyone has a scanner you can blow up the image to fit a 120mm, or even go smaller. Oh, anyways, back to my point. Aqua, I have nothing but respect for you and your mods, wiring I can do and figure out, but taking the time and not getting upset doing case mods and the nice time you put into your stuff, my hat goes off to you. Future plans now is to back light the holes Ice blue, I guess I could always try to make it a little nicer, but I think I'm done doing case mods for a few days, But I guess bleeding over a case mod is typical, says a few friends of mine, on other forums Anyways, thanks everyone that has viewed my intel Hack, and thanks for your support.
