Well I haven't painted mine but I did run into that problem with my h100, the factory black paint made threading the screws uncomfortably tight (luckily I already had the 6-32 tap to clean them up). So I could see it might bring up an issue if alot of paint/primer is put down. I've painted alot of things with threaded holes before though and often 'mask' the holes with round toothpick stubs (trimmed to stick out about 1/8" from the item for easy removal afterwards). But all things considered, I will likely change the color of my frame at some point but I plan to wrap it with vinyl so I can cover up all those extra holes I don't use and add to the clean look. Panel-wise though, I have yet to see anybody tackle wrapping vinyl around all those corners and would probably just paint, but no threaded screw holes to contend with there though. biggrin.gif

I've rapainted my lanboy 3 times. Hmm have to think about it, (green, flat black, then splash) yeah 3 times. I've never had any major issues with screw's threading in. On my first paintjob I had some minor spots you would see yellow inside the holes after i unscrewed stuff. My paintjobs after that all where sanded down to baremetal however.

So staying on the top of paintjobs.

I'm really torn on my next color so i'm gonna reveal the colors i'm pondering.

Accent color on my case will be blue and all lighting will be blue.
However I am painting the frame back to my original paint scheme of Green or Pink.

I feel either of these colors will have the wow factor. I'm leaning towards pink but the green color was amazing and I miss it.

PINK - wow he painted it pink
GREEN - the best color in the world but everything i own turns to green. (including the bread)

Give me your honest opinions on what color you think my frame should be.

Haha, well what kinda green? Lots of different greens out there. When you speak of green you are gonna do it on the frame or the panels? or both?
post #2134 of 3182
This green as this is what it used to look like. Besides the frame the rest is a surprise on what i'm doing with the build.

thanks guys, Jerry, darkhorse, awesome work guys, infact everyone on this thread has inspired me!

btw, it's taken me 2 weeks, but i have read this entire thread, all 2134 posts... i don't know how much of it my brain took in... quite a read! It's hard for me to not post replys about things that happened ages ago... Especially the controversy with old mate on facebook with his LBA makeover... hahaha

I want to go green similar to jerry's first spray, but a little darker. Its hard to tell what the colour looks like in person, just looking at a photo.... but it's close to what i want. I wanted an something different, but green is the colour of champions!

Advice... i just bought a 6850 and had plans of a second, and having them cooled in a single loop w/CPU... i am aiming for an eyefinity rig... But i have had second thoughts... maybe i am better off selling the 6850 and going for something better, perhaps one 7850, rather than the 2 x 6850s... budget is about $300 AUD
post #2136 of 3182
Hehe, thanks. Yeah I am kinda in that same situation. When I built my rig originally it was almost 2 years ago, and working out the full system budget I had to go econo with a 5770, intending on just adding a second one in a few months. Well... compared to anything else I've ever had that little card is a trooper, pushes 2x 1080p displays everyday, but I only game on one screen. But now we've gone so far I see all the new cards are calling for pci-e 3.0 where I am still rolling with 2.0. At the moment I really don't want to start over with a new mobo so I'll probably try to pick up something hot for 2.0, GTX 580 perhaps? Yeah triple screen gaming is my ultimate goal, yet that 3rd 27 inch panel still eludes me.

Wow you read threw all that, i've done it though. It's a daunting task but there is a wealth of knowledge. Try reading the nzxt phantom group lol. I've been working on going threw threads and members list all last night. Lmao!

I agree photo's are hard to really capture the true color sometimes. The green I had was very bright but it was not too much brighter then the yellow lanboy. I originally attempted to paint the case with Rustoleum Flurescent but the paint came out horrible as that particular paint was made for marking stuff like the concrete and grass. I ended up respraying the case with krylon fluorescent green and was very happy with the results.

Like i said i'm still on the fence if the Lanboy is going back to that color of green or going to a new color of Pink. The accent colors inside the case will be blue regardless.

You're probably going to be better with the single 7850. I run 2 6970's and I run eyefinity and there are a lot of crossfire headaches, one of them being tearing lines (horizontal in landscape eyefinity, vertical in portrait eyefinity). You won't get these if you run just one card, which should still be capable of eyefinity.

Here is my lanboy. I am going to be doing some work to it. Will post updates when I have them.

Nothing special. I hope to update my rig soon. biggrin.gif

That sucks... i don't want issues like that... I will definately go with the 7850. I've got 2 x 24" LG monitors, and i have an OCD like a mofo, so i would have to have the same monitor for the third, but i will need a displayport to hdmi adaptor. Having a single GPU will be cheaper in the long run with watercooling and whatnot, also not as cluttered in the case.

i know its in the thread somewhere, but how did you guys fix the acrylic to the side panel without glue showing up all ugly like? i read something about 3M adhesive tape...
