    Hello guys, I recently bought an Antec Three Hundred for $40 ;) Regular is $~65

    If anyone's interested, I got it from MicroCenter, here's the link:

    http://microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0283272

    ***EDIT Price is now $59.99***

    Now onto the mod.

    Here' are the things that were done so far:

    - Cut side window
    - Cut side "300" detail
    - Cut some holes in chasis for cable management
    - Painted back slot cover thingies and front fan cages Gloss Black (same paint brand as below)
    - Painted inside Gloss Orange

    Here's the case in stock

    Cutting of the "300" part

    There are still some sharp edges and crooked turns but that can be fixed
    The window hole was cut off-center on purpose, I didn't want the PSU to show on the window.

    And here's the orange paint job (lol I couldn't remove the power on/reset switches :p)

    Here's the black stuff and the rear fan ;)

    What I need to do now is get some money for the rest of the mod! :D

    - 2 x Blue LED fans
    - 2 Blue Cold Cathodes
    - Window Molding
    - Install Plexi Glass + Mesh

    Stay tuned! :)

    Looks awesome, Omar! :)

    Is it going to replace your Rosewill?

    ^ Yep, it's gonna replace the Rosewill. I think the Rosewill looks good and everything but it has very little space. No space to do cable management really, and my hard drive is literally almost touching the floor of the case :p

    Thanks so far :)

    Looks nice so far. I might need to have a go at something like that; I love my Elite 330, but I'm considering a project just to do. But why orange paint and blue LED's/cathodes?

    Nice job, can't wait to see this when it's done.

    Quick question, when painting a case what type of paint? And also do you do any prep work on the case? sanding, multiple coats, ect.?

    He painted it with Rust-oleum. I would do a little sanding and then put a coat of primer on it. Then apply several light coats of paint.

    Looks great! I think the '300' will look great once you get some lights in there! :)

    Can't wait to see it all together!

    Thanks peoples! :)

    You can see that I missed some spots with the paint job, it's just that I focused on the parts that would actually show up. You know, nobody's gonna put their heads inside the case and look up and that kinda thing... :p

    Looks great dude, although I think it would have been nice if the "300" on your side panel was level with the window hole.

    ^ Yeah, I pointed that out on the first post, I did that on purpose so that the power supply is not shown through the window but didn't know how bad the miss-alignment would look :p

    We'll see how it turns out :rolleyes:
