I think it will blend it alot better once the case is powder coated black.
Cable sleeving should also neaten it up but im think about removing a HDD to help neaten up the wiring

yea it is hard to organize them nicely. Once you get everything sleeved it should become a little neater. or you can screw hiding them and make it flow like me biggrin.gif

Sup guys, been a mighty long time since i have posted.

Anyways, i'm back. Still got the A05NB and in love with this chasis smile.gif
After checking a few builds and seeing how amazingly clean a matte interior looks i decided to give it a bash.

First part... drive cage, I figured its better to mess up one part than mess up the entire chasis.
I took my time with spraying this part as i really wanted it to come out as good as it possibly can with just rattle cans.

Overall, i am very happy with the results. Camera really does not do justice.
Little tip for you guys, 1200 grit sand paper goes a long long way to getting the desired look.

Primer:

Colour:

700

Full chasis will be resprayed soon

Painting my case was one of the best things I ever did. It was a lot of fun, and I have fond memories of it.

Painting is all about prep work but i must say i absolutely HATE the wait in between coats.
I started spraying colour but i got home rather late so i managed a few coats, a couple more coats and leave the case to air out.
Smell of paint filling my study sucks.

Will post up a few more pics

Sorry for not posting pics, but my phone has been dead since last night. S2 needs a new flex cable, microusb port is being finicky :/

I thought spraying my drive cage was a straight forward process but i didnt realize just how much paint i needed to cover this case nice and evenly.
Already wasted 2 cans of colour on the case :/

Anyways, i sprayed a few coats of colour, a few light coats till case was 90% covered, followed by 2 heavy coats and was generally happy till i noticed a metric ton of overspray on a few spots doh.gif

A few min ago i busted out the sandpaper and got wet sanding down the case and i am immensely glad that i did.
With good ol 1200 grit the paint now feels super smooth and most of the imperfections are gone however the paint now looks very dull and almost greyish.

Thats a good thing though! by wetsanding it i have leveled out the paint and with maybe 3 more light coats i can get this case looking as good as my drive cage biggrin.gif

Just wish there was more hours in the day though sleepsmiley02.gif
