    Case Modding "101" - The PSU

    Case Modding "101"

    The PSU
    Not too shabby at this point, but we still have a ways to go with installing the PSU Acrylic Window Mod and the first ever 4" CC inside of the PSU! SWEET! I picked up a REALLY cheap DURO 400w PSU and decided I would use it for this mod.

      

      

    In order to fit the 4" CC in the PSU properly, I had to takeout the black cable protector. I wrapped the cables up good with some standard electrical tape to keep them from getting cut by the edges. Then I put in some velcro to hold in the CC light with some tape on the edges.

     

    Above you can see the cables draped over the CC. This looked like it would be the most prudent placement of the light. And the finished job.

      

      

    The finished product is really sharp looking. Yes, 9 out of 10 people on the face of the planet could care less, but case modders and overclockers rejoice at such a sweet looking PSU mod. Wait till we turn off the lights and fire it up! Speaking of which.....

     

     

    FINALE
    The case looks really sharp in low light situations. And even in normal light, it gives a faint glow that just looks pretty cool. Like a "hey, is there a light in there?" effect.

     

      

      

    So that finishes up the first installment of Case Modding 101. In the next installment I would like to install a 12" CC to truly show off the case window. A QUAD LED fan in the front to emit some cool lights from the front grill, and possibly a topside window with an exhaust fan like this one (hint...hint)...

    Finally, we'd like to thank you for joining us today, and hope to see you back for installment 2 of Case Modding "101". This is the type of stuff we really enjoy doing, and more importantly, helping you guys out there get those cases modded too. Obviously these were fairly simple mods. But ones that will make you proud of your case and give you something to show off to your friends. We'd also like to thank Greg @ZXMods for providing the mod kits we used here today. Be sure to stop by there for some great case mod items that you just can't get anywhere else.
