Have you ever tried your hand at modifying the CPU?

  1. Loads of times! I have even used drills and shears!!

  2. Yeah, the usual lights and stuff.

    25.0%
  3. No, prefer to stay out of trouble.

  4. ...what does THAT mean! :S

    Hello!
    I spent Rs. 1,500 today and bought a new casing for my CPU. It's pretty cool. It's is transparent on the left side and there is an additional fan connected to it that lights up when powered.
    However, it still lacks the charm that I have seen in some modded CPUs shown in DIGIT sometimes.
    Now, I am not a genius enough to modify my CPU by physically shearing it apart and that sort of stuff but I want to know what sort of cool accessories are readily available that I can easily install on/in my cabinet.
    In the attached pictures I have shown the fan that came on the side of my CPU's casing. Can I get such lighted fans separately? If yes, from where and at what cost?
    Apart from this, please suggest some others accessories to jazz up my CPU.
    Thanks! :)

    P.S. - If you have taken the time to read this 'essay', I am sure you'd like to help a poor guy out! :p

    There are very few products and wrong pages are linked to wrong links. And Antec products are very costly and aren't easily available. Each UV fan costs Rs. 407 and the lights are priced in excess of Rs. 1,000.

    Those are quite unrealistic. I mean, I don't intend to do such excessive modding. :)
    The first site DID help though. :)
    Any other helpful information guys?

    YUP theitdepot site is a mess - the page showing the MOD stuff is now....

    http://www.theitdepot.com/categories1.asp?cat=1026

    there is 3 pages of the MOD stuff - I agree there is not much in their list - but - this is about the only Indian site which lists out these products.....

    The other link I gave is all about freaky MODs :) but they show you how the MODs were done so may be if you check that you may get some ideas.

    If you want to check other sites for MOD stuff check....

    I cannot do online shopping. I buy everything from my vendor.

    And thanks for the sites, Eazy! Might prove helpful.

    Isn't there anyone who has actually done some modding here?
