http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00499.jpg

There is a plastic rim on the front which also came off, maybe i'm gonna do something with it

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00501.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00500.jpg

Back is removable also

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00495.jpg

And the top

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00487.jpg

Nice panel

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00492.jpg

And the case without the plastic

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00480.jpg

Oww almost forgot, the hdd racks are easily removable

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00486.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00485.jpg

Almost nothing left

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00482.jpg

First modification. For this i've used 3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM

3M Di-Noc CARBON FIBER FILM (http://www.mnpctech.com/CarbonFiber_Gunmetal_Titanium.html)

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/xb09/carbonfiber_gunmetal_titanium_mnpctech_com2.jpg (http://www.mnpctech.com/CarbonFiber_Gunmetal_Titanium.html)

First done the control panel and the narrow strips on the sides

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00520.jpg

After that did one sidepanel with the carbon film

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00524.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00527.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T1/DSC00541.jpg

For now this was the start, more to come when I have some more hardware

Hi, my modding friends
Did some nice things to the 600T
For this I have 2 Black Ice GT Stealth 240 rads

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00686.jpg

And Coolermaster has given me 4 very good fans. The Turbine Master Mach 0.8 (http://www.coolermaster.nl/product.php?product_id=6695)

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00691.jpg

I'm going to place 2 of these on top of the 600T

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00695.jpg

Need to take of the cap for the mesh panel otherwise it don't fit

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00698.jpg

Beneed the Turbine masters I am gonna place 1 black ice rad

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00705.jpg

The other two turbine nasters are coming in the front

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00710.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00718.jpg

Going to place the second rad inside

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00712.jpg

It dont fit, so have to cut a piece out of the bay

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00711.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00717.jpg

Back to the top again. I think it's not finished..............so it's acryl time
For this IT-service (http://www.it-service.be/webshop/index.php) has send me a beautiful piece of 5mm UV blue acryl

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00725.jpg

Marked for cutting

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00724.jpg

And cut it

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00727.jpg

Cut the little pieces out

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00728.jpg

Still need to file this

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00729.jpg

And it fits

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00735.jpg

Mesh cover placed

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00731.jpg

Next step, marked the fans

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00737.jpg

Did the cutting with my hightech fretsaw

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00739.jpg

Without the tape. Hmm looks like .....................

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00740.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00744.jpg

And placed the Turbine masters

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00746.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00748.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T2/DSC00749.jpg

The idea is to past black film over the acryl with blue lines visible

Last week a received a very nice package from IT-Service

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00753.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00779.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00783.jpg

And a nice Sony Optiarc AD-5260S-0B

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00879.jpg

I'm not only showing you good products but have also done some work
The front. I want to give the same looks as the top, with acryl and 2 CM fans.
The plastic front

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00869.jpg

Here I have cut away the middle bar

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00870.jpg

Sawn a piece of 5mm blue acryl

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00872.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00871.jpg

And again the same as the top..........sawn the two fans

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00873.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00875.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00878.jpg

Made the slot for the dvd

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00880.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00881.jpg

Removed the tape

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00889.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00885.jpg

But we're not there yet, transparent is not what I want. That's why I have used black film to make small borders, later on with light

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00891.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00892.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00893.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00895.jpg

Paste tape again

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00896.jpg

Now I have cut out a 5mm line

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00897.jpg

Removed all the tape

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00900.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00898.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00906.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00908.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00904.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T3/DSC00901.jpg

And slide out the same lines as the front panel

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T4/DSC00955.jpg

Put everything together

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T4/DSC00956.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T4/DSC00958.jpg

And the outlet from the rad with just enough space to put the fittings in

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T4/DSC00968.jpg

The 600T how it's gonna be

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T5/DSC00979.jpg

Removed the acryl window from the reservoir and marked the holes for the M4 bolds

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T5/DSC00980.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T5/DSC00982.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01219.jpg

For the side of the midplate I've sawn a piece of 5mm transparant acryl

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01207.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01222.jpg

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01230.jpg

Back to the transaprant acryl, past black film on it

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01233.jpg

Cut out the outline

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01235.jpg

And past 3m Carbon on the smaller plate

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01237.jpg

And put the both together

http://i759.photobucket.com/albums/xx233/kier1976/600T6/DSC01239.jpg
