well, 2 days ago I decided to start a fun little mod that would give me a challenge. I was getting bored with just painting, windows, and lights (I'm sure some of you know what I mean). I decided to make a slimcase. Not only that, s SUPER slimcase. I decided to chop it down a full inch! If you notice a slimcase that has just had the top of the faceplate chopped only takes a half an inch off the height, and I wanted more! Oh, and by the way

I'll still have a working dvd player!

nuff' about the BS, here's how I've done it:


the beginning:

I took quite a bit out of the case to make sure everything lines up:

this had to be the hardest part, moving the controller ports down.I had to fit and bondo them in. I chopped the faceplate and fitted the portholders at the level of the holes in the faceplate. I made sure that I can plug the controller into the ports.

next I took my chopped faceplate, and all that good stuff and fitted them together to get a good idea of what it will look like. I had to cut a bit off the sides to get it small enough.:

that should give you a good idea of how much smaller this thing is.

P.S. sorry about the last pic, I had to brighten it up a little cuz it was really dark.
edit: fixed it

Looks really nice, Are the side fins just cut, and do you have plans to fix them up so the bottom piece is back on?

the side fins are cut, they are just sittin on the ground. and the bottom is attached in that pic, it is just so low that you cannot see it!

no Im gonna leave it bland and ghetto....of course! I have some good plans for this one...

QUOTE

okay, I'll let it out. the DVD drive will be external and detatchable. Also, it will be vertical standing with it's own little stand. I've thought it out and even tested it a bit so It'll all be gravy

I'll update as often as I can, and any questions and comments are welcomed!

Will you have to switch the bios everytime you decide to start it up with the dvd drive installed? Or if you normally run with the drive when you run it with out?
Of course I don't see much point in a slim case if you have a dvd drive hooked to externally all the time so I am thinking your gonna run it normally without.

I would run it normally without. not much need to when I have a BIG ass HD in there with all my um.....stuff on it. I'll just have it just incase

I had to cut a half an inch off of the bottom of the fins to be able to get it to fit. they were toolong before. (does this answer you question? Im not sure I understand)

I don't mind the dvd drive being external, especially since I will still get to use it. ubernewbs box is real tight, but no dvd rom at all. I would at least like to be able to hook it up without taking it apart if I need to

That looks pretty sweet! It's too bad the dvd drive is gonna be external, but hey, not much you can do about it, right?

Anyway, This looks really good so far... I can't way to see how it progresses!

Nevermind, the person was d o a flo and I thought that they had re-attached the lower section of the fins (IE the bottom part, the flat part that runs a cross. But I was wrong

Ah, I see. I thought about it, But I don't know if it's worth the trouble. It woun't be curved like the original, but I might. what do you guys think? it is worth the trouble to go for the gold?
