The folks are MGE were feeling generous, and sent us an extreme mod kit to go with our dragon case. The kit contained a neon fan, metal fan grill, a neon stick, 2 smaller light beams (a 1 light, and a 3 light), and UV SATA cables. Here’s a pic of all the components. Sorry about the glare.
The only thing I couldn’t use in this kit, were the SATA cables. I plan on getting SATA drives sometime in the near future, so they wont go to waste!
When I first opened the kit, I was like “where am I going to put this fan??”. After a little snooping, it suddenly dawned on me.
Yup. Goodbye air funnel, hello neon fan. Take a peek at the outside, after I’d done all the legwork.
I would have to say, it looks pretty nice. It's definitely an improvement over the plain blue grill and the air funnel. Plus, to those of you who have a larger CPU fan, this is much less obtrusive.
Along with the fan, I installed the neon stick and the two smaller lights. I was able to have the fan and neon stick share the same inverter, so I don’t have two of them hiding in the case. After about 20 minutes of cable arranging and hiding, I was done. There is now a small switch on the back of the machine, so I can turn the additional lights on and off. Here are some pics with and without the extra lights on. These were taken in the dark, to fully give you an idea of what the mod kit did for the case:
Its amazing the difference that a few well-placed lights can make. Im also sure my computer will be cooler with the third case fan in place. To be honest, the pictures don’t really do justice to how cool the machine looks now that its had the additional modkit installed.
To be honest, one of the things Id prefer when it came to the modkit, was some way to turn the kit on and off on the front of the case somewhere, instead of having to reach around to the back of the case. My computer sits on the floor to my left, and its really danged inconvenient to reach back there. I know I could drill my own holes and stick a switch on the front, but that’s too much work! It would be great if case makers (especially those who make cool cases like this) who KNEW their cases were going to be modded, could put some sort of switch panel at the front of the case to be used whenever you get additional lighting.
