Inside of my case has always been pretty clean but I thought I could do better. Came back from a lan party and decided before I set my pc back up I would clean it up some more. Still not happy with the big glob at the bottom but it is better then before. Also replaced the fan up front.

Case modage planed in the future though.

I'm going to add a cathode to this soon. I think I'll go with a white cathode so all the colours in the case can come out.

Wow, is this topic dead or what...

The problem is that there is not many home made Case Mods here, most are pre-bought modded cases which isn't very "fun" to look at :(

So here is my first electronics project, which is also the first "mod" to my case. This fanbus a work in progress, I plan to add a few more things to the front panel. Right now it consists of 4 on-off-on switches with 2 LEDs per switch. Down is low (7v, 1 LED), up is high (12v, 2 LEDs). Sorry the photo's white balance is off, I am posting this on a spare computer while I wait to order new parts.

I got all of these parts from www.allelectronics.com.

First I came across a project board and decided to put it to use. I soldered some plugs for my fan connectors first.

I put a switch and LEDs on it that I had already made to make sure everything worked the way I thought it would, and it did.

405173935_c5f62dd935_o.jpg

Here is the board with the resistors for the LEDs and some leads for the fan connectors. Oh and the big ugly molex connector.

The bottom with all the solder joints. This is the first time I have soldered before.

Here is the drive bay that everything is going in. Originally I was going to use a 3in bay but I sure am glad I chose a 5, there is a lot more room. There is the DPDT switches and LEDs.

405173756_8ec4a29d32_o.jpg

Here is the beginning of the mistake I made. Instead of soldering the leads to the panel then to the board, I did it the hard way. I put them on the board first, then to the front. That turned out to be a real big pain in the ass to connect the two together. If only I had stopped and thought for an extra half second..

Here it is coming together..

And here it is finished. What a mess. But it worked the first time!

And here it is in my case. Man it sure is nice to have, and it was very simple to make even for a first timer. It may not be the peatiest though but I made it! I am ordering new parts next week for my new computer and that will start round two of my modding.
