Addtronics 6890 Case Mod

"First of all I wanted a window on the side panel to be able to see what's inside the case."

Another case, another mod. This time the victim is the Addtronics 6890, which I had the pleasure to review last October. In its original form this case would probably cater to almost any overclocker. It's big, very solid and has the ability to keep any system cool, but like most case moders say, no case is perfect out of the factory.

I have already written a few articles describing the basics of case modification, which are good for beginners. This time I'll go over the basic stuff real fast and try to focus on new techniques and methods I tried which are not mentioned in my previous articles. Ready? Let's get started then.

First of all I wanted a window on the side panel to be able to see what's inside the case. I started by making the hole in the side panel. Make sure that the window will fit where you want it, then make your marks and cut. I made the hole with a jigsaw and used my dremel to smooth the edges and fix any little imperfections. I decided to use some molding around the window to give it a better finish. I found some black rubber molding at CaseEtc, which is just perfect for the job.

At first I wasn't sure if the molding would fit my window because of the round corners. My concerns quickly disappeared. This rubber molding is very flexible and had absolutely no problem bending to the shape of my window. It's also pretty cheap and gives a nice professional finishing touch to the window.
