Have always been building/fixing PCs for myself, family and friends for 5 years now and recently decided to try out customizing to make look nice and more functional (got a new desk and now that i sit my tower on my desk with window facing me I realized how much of a clutered mess it looked like :p)

Was looking at new cases that looked more nice and saw a couple modded antec 900s that looked good and were modded and thought pffft I can do that, I don't need a new case!

So joined the site today and thought I would post pictures of yesterdays work! Here it is my 1st build! (even though I built it a month ago already and just now got around to cable tucking/customizing it)

Lemme know what ya'll think! even the bad comments :p

After everything was disassembled as much as it could be, I was prepared to keep a big mental record as to how the plastic on the case is held on, turns out only 2 screws :rolleyes:

Forgot to take pictures of it directly but before i painted i cut out 6 extra holes with a dremel and lined them with fuel line once paint dried
Priming the Case and some other parts and the end result, painted flat black...after installing all the parts back in I realized i should have put on a couple coats of clear coat too...oh well another project another day :p

Mounting the HDDs to the bays and running the Sata cables

After all the cables were run I sloppily tapped them to the back of the mobo tray, after who gonna see it with the panel covering it...turns out this made it more difficult to get the tray on /facepalm

The finished product! (for now, I ran out money DOH!)
The cable sleeves are blue UV reactive so I bought a blue UV light kit with 2 12in lights and I love the glow look they have!
