SABERTOOTH (antec 900)

long time no post big_smile

anyway. while browsing the net these past few weeks. i came across a review of asus latest motherboard offering for the P55 platform. the asus SABERTOOTH, i was so impressed with the overall look and color theme of this motherboard and decided to use it as the theme for my next casemod project.

the case i'll be using for this project is an antec 900 case. the case will be painted and accentuated using camo colors and styles based on the asus Sabertooth.

some pics of the case.

Re: SABERTOOTH (antec 900)

started this mod by redoing the front panel. i wanted the front to have small accents to give it a meaner look.

-the accents were made from small pieces of left over acrylic.

-the front panel was then painted using khaki camouflage paint.

all it needed was a little facelift big_smile

some pics of the modded block, after painting the waterblock top with army green camo paint  and adding a couple of koolance rotary elbows and compression fittings. i also used some lamptron slot protector covers to accentuate the mobo area.
