Quite a lot of mods, sorry for anyone who is still on 56 K
 
taylormsj, be carefull NOT to put the computer with bottom fans on carpet if they are intake, my current case for some reason has the front intake fan sucking in air from a little hole on the bottom of the case, and after that spot carpet became dust-free, my video card looked like a dustball, and 2 minutes later it caught on fire.

lol theres never been a heatsink that sucks air through, they all blow onto the heatsink, simple aerodynamics shows that.
i dont know if i can could this but on my on AMD 700MHz had a big heat sink on it but the fan was a short elbow bend with a fan sucking air an that sat about an inch above the heatsink an you could feel the air coming through the fins on the heat sink.

I had a really nice looking Gateway desktop case I modded a long time ago. I painted it red (leaving some parts gray), added a fan to the top, one on the front (hidden) and removed and filled the old "Gateway 2000" logo. That was quite a while ago, though, and I've not done anything too major since...

I do have my NAS I recently removed the fan and replaced with a much larger, more quiet fan. Perhaps I could clean up the cut then paint the case :p I recently noticed some scratches in the plastic, so painting it wouldn't be that bad of an idea :p

Taylor, excellent mods as always :) For the UV lights, would you recommend LED's or cold cathodes?



burnt! :D

Led's look much nicer, but they are a pain to wire up, even more of a pain to attach them in a good position, cathodes would be much easier for the lazy user

Thanks cause I already own 2 x UV cathodes, and I think they look good and was wondering if it was worth it to get LED's instead...
