    Talking Newly Modded SN45G - Mmmmmmmmm

    Hey y'all.

    Finally got all the bits back together for my SN45G after sending the lid away to Kustom and my word...if computers ACTUALLY turned me on, I would be drooling so much right now.

    PC Spec,

    AMD Athlon XP3000+ Barton (400MHz)
    Corsair XMS3200 Pro (1024MB)
    Seagate Barracuda 120GB
    Sony DVD/CD-R Combo
    Saphire Radeon 9600XT 256MB
    Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS

    Modifications,

    Picture faceplate
    Stealthed DVD/CD-R
    Aluminium mesh windows (both sides)
    Green & Blue Cold cathodes
    Blue cathode fan grill
    Clear acryllic (atomic)
    Blue & Orange thumbscrews (like the front LEDs)









    What dya think?

    I've got the same 4 inch cathodes installed in mine and I've got my inverters sat in the drive cage underneath my hdd and some switches for them on the pci blanking plate on the back. Cathodes are really something you have to play around with to get just right, the top chassis rail and the underside of the psu are good places to start though.

    Well I chopped the screws and glued them to the perspex, then got the picture and the first time I used spray mount n 2nd I used double sided tape. Nope sure which ways best yet, still feel theres a better way to stick the picture n perspex together. Then I used those foam sticky fixers to attatch it to the drive.

    all my inverters are sat at the back resting above the ICE fan. Eventually I intend to put the switches through the LPT1 hole but atm its a little too small so I'm gona enlarge it when I can be bothered. At the moment I just leave them on all the time and the switches are inside.

    For 2 mesh windows it was £36, which isn't cheap but the end result is imaculate (sp?) and the service is great so I guess you get what you pay for.
