Project "COOL" V2 resurrected !!!!!

Postby jj_sky5000 on Wed Sep 02, 2009 7:46 am

I was sitting at my desk surfing the web when I came across the Cooler Master casemod contest page. Wow that’s neat. look at all those awesome mod projects. Hmmmm wish I had something to mod. ohhh what’s this on top of my shelf my 1990 (nonworking) Boombox . Image
Maybe I could sell it and get some money too make a Mod. It was in the movie "House Party" with Kid & Play back in the 90's Look in the background http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uXXpa49fOyU
Lets put it on eBay. Lets see how much one of these go for. Well after more research on eBay I found out that, My boom box will sell for any where between $200 to $1000. It was a collectors items. WOW I cant sell that. So I will just have to update it a little. Put some newer technology in . A duel loop I7 -965 with a pair of 280 gtx's with 7.1 surround sound that should work. But can i get everything to fit. "Sure I can" I don’t think I will be able to put it on my shoulder through.

I wonder how big those speaker holes are 190mm how am i going to fill that up. How about a pair of cooler Master 200mm fans that should work.

Lets see what i have laying around to work with.

Could be a cool "object" mod entry in the "unique" category. It looks large so you should cram MAYBE a mAtx mobo into it, but wow, those mods take a lot time and planning, not to sure you could make it for Sept 20 , unless you have already advanced on it. Would be a welcome addition for sure.

Cheers and Saludos

Hmm, looks interesting, although, I wonder how you'll place that GPU inside on the mobo, seems quite thin the casing...?

A radiator! Boy that is cramming things in a lot! Oh, and it is fair to answer back (feedback) as this is not your regular modding type forum. Your comments and pearls of knowledge are appreciated!
