Full Case
Owner: Blopnuts

.: All mods by owner...
This used to be a pretty plain white AOpen case i got from my college, i liked the smooth looking front of it.
-plasma ball taken from halloween statue running off 12v case power, completely shielded from metal casing. Has an on/OFF switch for those annoying little kids at lan parties who go "oh it shocked me" "oh it shocked me" "oh it shocked me" if WERE shocking you (and it isnt) then why would you keep touching it?
-the led display on the front controlled by parallel port, lets me make any flashing pattern i want, or set it to diplay memory or processor usage as a bar graph, programmed in visual basic :)
-i also have another parallel port hooked up to my doorbell that make a popup window when it is pressed, problem is, i can only use 1 at a time
-the rest is just basic stuff, but i was going for a sci-fi spacestation look
-i have about 10 full size photos at the link below

woow im easily impressed but wooow 5/5

Blopnuts25.06.2004 03:06
Sorry, not changing anything about my case, the colors and design is unique to my personality, not set by modding "standards" and the purpose of the different colored led's is for the memory meter, much like the leds in an old stereo volumeter, the red means danger zone, yellow is caution and green is ok.
And kicking my plasma ball is out of the question :)

Thats an interesting situation with the mobo. Globe seems kind of dangerous on the floor, ever walk by and almost kick it? Should change the LEDs in the led display to LEDs that match. Also paint the plate its on. Stealth the drives completely, the half painted look just doesnt fly. Plenty of nice mods here. 3/5

The thing on the top is just a lighted usb cable and a cd case :)
i apoligise for the messiness, i am constantly digging around in there.
In case youre wondering why i need 2 extra blowholes on the side, my mobo currently runs my processor at at least 60C which is about 15C more than it should, on cool days. The mobo will not let me set a voltage of less than 1.8 because it is defective and my procesor needs 1.6, but the mod helps a great deal.

Nado23.06.2004 14:31
looks nice. the insides are pretty messy, but i love your ideas in combination with programming. just stop using vb =D 4/5

dave_beerman23.06.2004 10:24
Oh, it shocked me! (the look did)
Great work! I got something similar, just that mine is flat, not round. 5/5

venike23.06.2004 10:01
