I'm willing to start building a voodoo/3dfx dedicated computer case.
So far i managed to get for this Project a MicroATX MB from Biostar, a voodoo5, 512Mb RAM, a DVD, 2x HDD each 40 Mb, driven from a XP2200.
The case should look like a Barebone, small, silent and of course the Voodoo card should be good visible.
I'm greatfull for any Ideas and sugesstion.
Please post you Voodoo Case pics here.


Follow your dreams !

I can't remember where I saw it, but some guy had done the same thing. The side of the case had a large 3DFX logo window on the side, looked pretty sweet. I'll have to have a look for it.

One suggestion would be to light the case with the colors of 3DFX. Either combo colors or one specific color. Also if you know of someone in the industry of laser or water cutting, you should get them to make an 80mm or 120mm fan grill with the 3DFX logo.

I have also found with my case modding experience that a black case makes for a great pallet for all kinds of colors, and they stand out more, providing the black coatings are done right. If you really want to do a great paint job, primer, primer, primer, I can't stress enough that primer makes for a great base and even fills in small minor defect and scratches.

g/l and happy moddin'

you get anywhere with this radu?

google "3dfx applique" and you'll find the link to the guy who made his server box to show off.

i'm in the process of one now. waiting on the board to arrive, and then it is paint time.

i'll post when i'm finished.

ok, so i'm not really finished, but i got the case done except the front panel. the sliding door on the front is making things difficult, i might have to switch it for one without the sliding panel. anyway, i thought i'l post what i have done, since i'm at a standstill and those seem to last forever with my cases.

haha, nope. i predicted it: a standstill that last forever. mine still site without the front panel finished. the system inside is fully functional, but it's just sitting in a box. i lost my job and am now moving to Long Island, so it'll be in storage for a while.

never finished the UT2K4 case mod either, it's just sitting there waiting for my lazy ass to send it out for paint.
