    Default Modded side panel

    Today Iíve modded my case. The side panel of the case was transparent from the start but I wanted to have clearer view. At first my plan was to go to nearby glass shop for the mod job but then I wanted to do it myself. As a result this mod took place. I used a simple tool for it, which people use to cut paperÖ. Thatís right a scissor. Believe me the case I have has a very thin tin (previously used at least 4 case havenít got any one like this before). So cut through scissor was possible although it requires a bit force and proper attention. It was a very simple mod but at least suits my purpose.
    I marked the area first with pencil which I wanted to cut, then applied some force on the scissor to cut those areas. Nearly took an hour to do this ,but i enjoyed

    Please note that this post is not for any commercial use neither a tutorial, just wanted to share this with you guys. While this mod may sounds like extremely simple but is also very tricky and dangerous, I was lucky I didnít cut my finger in the process because cutting tin is not like cutting paper, it requires lot of attention, slightly bump of the scissor (in this case) can do harm for the finger . If you want to have transparent side panel on your case then I think going to a nearby glass shop probably is best idea as they might have varieties of plexi glasses and will do modding (in this case cutting areas of the panel by your choice) for you. I hope you like the mod; please feel free to post feedbacks and comments.

    At last! Great job, but I don't think others have so thin side panels that can be cut with scissors. But really, you did a great job.

    Mesh mod

    Its been a while since i done the scissor side panel mod with my case. Recently I decided to take off the side intake fan because of the dust was building heavily in the rig and i like to see my PC hardware clean, but the result was unsatisfactory as expected. PC was overheating since then. So i was looking for a dust filter/mesh (for air flow and of course to minimize dust) but couldn't find nearby, so i decided to mod again. Along with some other hardware my dead PSU was lying in my closet for months. I used scissor to cut a square portion from the back grilled mesh of my the PSU and then put the cutted grill mesh on to the black fan holder (which also i custom made before) and placed every thing back like before. Took nearly half an hour to do this simple but a bit tricky mod. In the end i am pretty satisfied with the looks and temp. Now my CPU idles @~40 c and @~60 c gaming (stock cooler @50% fixed fan speed). Hope you like this tiny mod, and i definitely need some cable management too, so any suggestions and comments are welcome. Thanks for viewing.
