case, another mod. This time the victim is the Addtronics
6890, which I had the pleasure to review
last October. In its original form this case would probably
cater to almost any overclocker. It's big, very solid
and has the ability to keep any system cool, but like
most case moders say, no case is perfect out of the factory.
have already written a few articles
describing the basics of case modification, which are good for
beginners. This time I'll go over the basic stuff real fast
and try to focus on new techniques and methods I tried which
are not mentioned in my previous articles. Ready? Let's get
of all I wanted a window on the side panel to be able
to see what's inside the case. I started by making the
hole in the side panel. Make sure that the window will
fit where you want it, then make your marks and cut. I
made the hole with a jigsaw and used my dremel
to smooth the edges and fix any little imperfections.
I decided to use some molding around the window to give
it a better finish. I found some black rubber molding
at CaseEtc, which
is just perfect for the job.
first I wasn't sure if the molding would fit my window because
of the round corners. My concerns quickly disappeared. This
rubber molding is very flexible and had absolutely no problem
bending to the shape of my window. It's also pretty cheap and
gives a nice professional finishing touch to the window.
