The mods thread

Hi, I couldn't find a dedicated thread for PC mods (case mods and stuff) so I decided to start off this thread. Post your case mods, keyboard mods, anything DIY that you did or you know about, lighting, windows and all things mods.

I'm beginning by posting some pics of my own very basic mod of adding a few LED's and stripping out the fan grill.

DIY FTW!
The fan grils were already there with holes for air (the one you see in cheap cases), I removed the grill by cutting it with a nose cutter and filed the edges. I did with the two holes on side and one at the back.
I also have cardboard ducts that supply cold air from outside the cabinet directly to the CPU.

Cost:
8 blue led's - Rs.18
cardboard, tapes, wires - had them lying around.
 
Are those led fans? where did u buy those leds for 18bucks? :p
and how did u make the rite hole width to fit the screw of the fans?

No, those are not led fans, just regular 80 mm fans. What I've done is that I've made a cardboard duct, sticked it to fans, and attached the led's to that duct. The price of the led'd is Rs.18.

About the grill, this is what I had earlier :

a regular grill that is present on almost all basic cabinets.

I removed that grill with a pliers and this is the result. Those grills stop significant amount of air and create lot of noise.

I'll try installing RGB led's in my cabinet so that I can change the lighting colour anytime, but all that after the exams, this edc is killing me :p

In The second shot, the glare from fan's sticker is looking awesome.

No highs, No lows = Bose.
I got it from newegg for final checkout price of 9$ ~ 500 INR.

On prime - they have some sunbeam strips for about the same price.

Well, next time you could probably built them yourself, it will hardly cost Rs.50 (here, at my place LED's are Rs.10 for 4-5 pieces).

How ?
I think those LED strips are different from the led/neon/cfl lights u use at your house.


How did you buy from newegg AFAIK newegg does not ship internationally?
hmm same question !!
My brother got it for me when he came back to India.

And also a blue CM blue led fan at the top.
Going to change the intel stock cooler soon. So its going to look even better soon enough.
