I had an extra v1.6 case, so I decided to mod it, I made the case universal, It's using the stock fan, I put my v1.0 in it (temporarily) because it has an X3 installed in it with a WD 80 GB HDD.

Here is the first pic

Look at the comparison between my first mod and the slim case

Thanks, I still have to move the ports to the left so it's the opposite of my first mod.
I'll have the pics of the HDD mounts tommorrow.

Here is the HDD mount, I used the dvd tray and cut the sides so it fits the case, then put plexi and screwed it down with the original stock case screws.
(Warning: if you try to make this kind of mount, tape the screws so it doesn't bridge the IDE, when you are screwing the HDD down do it slightly so you don't break your HDD, and don't forget to make a hole on the plexi so the drive doesn't overheat)

I'm probably putting bondo on that hole or adding a fan controller there.
Right now I only got a stock fan on it and it runs perfectly with only one, so I'm still thinking on what I should do with the hole.

uhm.. not to take anything away from his project, but how is this the best slimcase you've seen? he hasn't done anything to it yet, aside from set his controller ports in place..


sorry, no offense there c0d3_z3r0, but i hate these kinda responses... make an original comment with some constructive critisism or something.

someone should try searching the phrase "best one yet" ... i bet you'd get like a thousand results.. laugh.gif




but anyways.. what lcd you planning on there c0d3? and how you gonna mount it?
