I know this is a bit region specific but with no major LANs in the midwest its hard to meet up with other like minded modders/gamers/PC enthusiasts in the region. So for anyone in the region, what would you think about organizing a monthly meetup? Not a LAN but just people getting together for food, drink and tech talk. If there is enough interest maybe we could organize a LAN party but I just think it would be cool to meet people that don't look at you like your crazy when you tell them you mod computers :D/>. So for those in the midwest region, who would be interested?
Hey folks! Time for another mod from me. This came about from a decision where SFFreview.com would sponsor a minecraft tournament at a LAN local to me - Aucklan.com I decided to take the opportunity to introduce local LANners to two things - SFF and mods! I bought two of these cases, one for the prize mod and one for my own mod, and both will be shown in this thread as we go along. 47 days to go to get both done! Right,. lets do this! First of all, I've started with the Aywun A1-1001 chassis. It features a 250w SFX PSU, an external 5.25" bay and an internal 3.5" bay. It's pretty small too - coming in at around 11.5L external volume, under HALF the size of the Bitfenix Prodigy and just over half the size of the Coolermaster Elite 120. I will cover upgrades as we go through. I apologise for the quality of the pictures - my camera has packed a sad so I'm relying on my 3MP smartphone camera! First up - better cooling. The stock case comes with a 80mm front intake spot - and we all know 80mm fans aren't that great for moving air quietly. I've cut a larger fan position here - to fit a 120mm fan! This area will fit a regular 120mm fan if I decide to go with a custom HDD rack, or a Scythe Slim 120 if I keep the standard drive mount. Also done: The addition of a custom power switch and 16x2 line LCD unit. The LCD can be used to scroll messages, RSS feeds and pretty much anything else you can think of (except temps thanks to the plugin being abandoned :( ) Thats all for now - in the next few weeks I will be replacing the window with something nicer, sleeving the PSU, painting the case and adding some special touches :D
Hey folks, I'm modding up a SFF chassis as a LAN tournament prize and need some advice on painting it. I'm going for a urban digital camo style look similar to: The case is currently black powdercoat. I was wondering if the following would work: Mask off black areas I wish to keep on stock panels Spray etch primer and leave to dry Spray light grey and leave to dry mask off light grey I wish to keep spray dark grey and leave to dry Pull off masking to reveal the light grey and black Spray matte clear coat Would this work? Or would I be left with a very uneven surface due to the depth of the primer and 2 colours vs the stock black powdercoat?
