Does anyone pimp out their PC cases?

    I've been getting the ol' "pimping out" vibe again as springtime is upon Finland and my parents' garage can be used as a workshed again.. No no no, not in the prostitute-kind of sense, but in the sense of customizing and painting stuff! :eek: I have atleast one old cheapo acoustic guitar waiting to be repaired and refinished.. But anyways, lately I have been interested in redoing computer cases, as I grow tired with the usual dull gray looks and such.

    Here's what I did last fall with my new cheapo case. Nothing special though, just spraypainted the sides and cover plates of this $20 case with metallic red and some clear gloss, but it looks quite a bit better now. The chrome was there when I bought it. Even my mates said that they liked it much better now!

    So, any other case hot-rodders around?

    Ponder.. perhaps I'll match the finish of the CD-drive and add a window and some colored light inside the case next.. :cool:

    I wish that was real, because I think an aquarium like that would be neat.

    No money for that. I need a new pc first.

    It is real...it's not mine, but there is a company that makes kits to make these aquariums. A lot of people do it with their OLD apple's like the Apple II and stuff like that, the iMac aquarium is a more recent thing, but it is real. :D

  10. Yep, 2x120mm fans (intake), one on the side and one up front, 2x80mm fans (output) in the back above the PSU, CCFL-tubes(2) and soundproofing.

    I'm going to add a window soon, but I need to learn how to use the CAD/CAM stuff at school first, and roue some sorta pattern into it.

    p.s. My case is a AOpen HQ08
