    Another case I'm "meh" about. Usually I love Bitfenix cases, but this one is "meh" to me. I also see the LCD as gimmicky, but that's just my opinion.

    It is kind of gimmicky but in the right hands it could serve a real purpose. I also wish it was bigger so I could really display images.

    That right there is what I want as well. The LCD just seems too small for me to like it, you know? Heck, I think it'd look pretty sweet if they designed it to run the entire height of the front bezel, you know? Just imagine the sweet things you could do with that!

    First thing that came to mind when I read that was some slow moving swirl pattern. Something that looks like this

    Exactly! Something like I described would open up so much more opportunity, that I don't think they've yet thought of. Heck, just remove the LCD and cut out the piece necessary from the bezel, then put a custom res behind it, filled with that epic Mayhems coolant. Talk about awesome.

    A built in res in the front of the case would be sick. Great Ideas! I hope they are listening!

    i dont see why some pro modder couldnt replace the front piece with glass for custom cooling... Like Bill Owen

    I have my fingers crossed, but I "MAY" (its a big may) be getting one to play with.. as long as they like my build idea (nothing too fancy, but not a normal build)
    If I do, i will post up some pics showing all the angles of the front area. See if maybe it could be done.

    I'd like to put red leds up front so they "leak" out across the face from the spaces on each side

    That is why we said they do it. Everyone isnt a pro modder.

    Thats cool. Good luck bro. Hope to see your handy work..

    I hope so as well, though I've noticed that despite how great the reps are, the people who actually design these things don't much tend to listen to what the public says they actually want. I'd love to get my hands on one of these, and mod it myself. I be too po' tho'.

    I did get one and have started messing with it

    Well let me lay down the background...


    I was lucky enough to be given a BitFenix Pandora to play with..


    THANK YOU BitFenix!!





    so, my idea was to stuff an ATX board in it (I was told it will fit, and it does!)



    and to move the PSU to the front.. but it wont fit (because the MB tray is in the way..
    I thought of cutting it away but I am not confident enough (nor do i want to hurt this case!)







    sooo.. plan B is to save up for an mATX board.. LOL


    part 2 of the plan was to mount the Kuhler at the top....

    by separating the rad from the fan, then fitting them back together with the fan "shelf" between..which, would work great EXCEPT... that the fan doesnt fit with the MB in place! lol - its about 1/2" off


    one thing after another has stopped my ideas...There isnt enough room to put the rad+fan elsewhere at the top. The cooler is set up to push air through the rad.. i want to pull air so I can mount it up front.


    The Antec Kuhler 650 (I won it in a contest - thats why i am trying to make use of it instead of spending money)



    so I pulled the kuhler apart...
    i can replace the fan, I can use this cooler in the front and pull air in (because its designed to push). plus a red led fan will look cool on this.



    the white plug fits to the pump, and the wires are marked so can I just rewire from the main feed to the pump

    I had to drill out the pump "feet" (the x shaped bracket) to fit some little screws through.
    Then too the wires over to frozenCPU where I bought a BitFenix RED PWM fan and new pins.. They were kind enough to clamp the new pins on and test the wire. After I removed the ANTEC logo from the CPU mount.. Put the new FAN on and mounted it in the case!


    Newly added plug (where they re-pinned)



    Fan Mounted



    back view



    logo removed




    Now.. the next idea. a frosted dragon for the window.. need some window film
