Simple Pc Case Mod




About: Hi my name is Jordan , i am from greece and i love techonology and internet! Love to learn new stuff all the time! I am working as Honey producer and Computer Support and doing IM and growth hacking at my ...

So i got this old pc case , lets make it fancy :)

Step 1: Clean It !

First of all this project is old one so i dont have lot of photos , start with clean it and remove all parts you can like the plastics in the front.

At this picture cut off the rear part and adjuct this metal thing to take some air. ( this metal thing is used to fireplaces) use a drill to adjuct it.

Step 2: Cover Up !

When you have clean it cover tha parts you dont want to painted , like the inside of the case. I used some old paper and duct tape (my best friend :P )

Step 3: Geting Ready to Paint It !

Now use some sandpaper to the parts you want to paint , this takes all the dirt from the metal case. Dont use sandpaper at the plastic parts.

Step 4: Paint the Metal Parts and Plastic

I used two spray cans black and blue. I used the blue one for the metal parts and some parts from the plastic front part.

Step 5: Put It Together !

Now put all the parts back , i used already black plastics for the front part and black lg driver!

Step 6: Ready

And now is ready ! with a little sandpaper , duct tape, spray cans i made this old case like new!!

Sorry for my poor english guys :/

    I have an old desktop that I want to make better like this, but I don't want to take the parts out, because it still works. Anyway I could do it without taking it apart?

    1)Take the two sides off and paint them seperate.

    2)Take any other plastic part you want to paint like the ones from the front I did and paint them too.

    3)Cover really good the sides so no paint will get inside your hardware(use some old news papers.

    4)Now paint the "roof" of your pc case.

    5)Also you can get the front part out but be carefull because there will be cables connected to your motherboard.You can remove the cables ,paint it and then add the cables again or you can just take it off a little , cover the middle part from your pc case to the front panel and paint it.

    Sorry for my bad english :( If you need more help please don't hesitate to reply. :) What colors you will use ? :D

    Great work, the finished product looks very nice. The vented louvers on the side look like home/building vents covers though. You could paint them gloss black to match the rest of the case, or drill out the rivets holding them and replace them with a custom made or bought fan grills. I can't tell but I'd guess they're 100 or 120mm. Many online computer parts stores like sell custom ones very cheap.

    Nice. I always enjoy seeing a DIY rather than a purchase.
