Lol I saw that thing at Fry's
The sides took pretty bad ass but the front looks too much like Guyver or something =/

Oh and TycoMAI, thas why its called a case mod =P
You gotta do some cutting and what not to put the goods in there.

Personally, I think this one looks pretty sweet. I like the clean look of this.

Good Chenbro case. I've built three comps using those. VERY nice for the money you pay. However, I don't know why you would want to put an XBOX in there. Try something more unconventional...

im a real big fan of acrylic cases because you can see all the components from any angle pretty much.
I think the clear one is the best but its your box biggrin.gif

nope, if u want a comp case, but want it to be small, go here and then go to thier order page and get the micro atx case

im working with that one now, and its definatly small and portable, bot to much bigger then a xbox case and it still allows room for expansion

thoes guardians look really cool but the price is up there. for TychoMAI useing computer cases just gives more room and a new look. for the controller thing, what im going to do is put the controller ports in one of the drive areas. also im thinking of putting a HUB in one of the drive areas. for "Qube" you mean more original? i dont really care if its out-of-the-ordinary but i just would like space, some style, and doesnt cost alot of money.

i want whoever looks at this post to look at the chenbro case at the top and tell me if it would look good with the front and sides have kinda rigid lines in patterns kinda like spikes. and also a different side window. thats what im thinking of doing. oh yea also painted a sky blueish color with white edges like frosty corners. i think its going to be awesome
tell me what you think
