Mb has been flaky and instead of a replacement, I have to wait for a refund and then purchase it again. Not sure if I want to keep it though. Would need a gpu upgrade tbh.

Thinking of painting my case. As far as a new case, I really like the Azza Genesis 9000. Only wish it had a bigger door. I've been eye white or mettalic blue or rrrred.

Since my mb is out, I decided to try some painting, and like always I fail frown.gif. For some reason the primer ends up being fuzzy and with thin fibers. ruins the top coat frown.gif. Its not a filler primer so I really don't see the need to sand it down, though the instructions do offer as option to do so. Good thing I did a test sample only (left panel). I'm just going to paint it black again frown.gif.

Was hoping for a nice white finish. I bought some semi-gloss white and it turned out more matte than gloss. redface.gif

Yeah, I wanted it too but it don't have a huge window and its air cooling is a bit awkward. Which is a huge let down for me since I'm air cooling now. I'll keep my Elysium. I have a relative who has a friend that woks at a car paint shop. I might just spend a bit of money to get it all painted professionally.

Now that would be something worth doing ..

always watch your primers, a cheaper primer is sometimes better, etch primers are the worst for wisping. but do spend money on good top coat.
if you go that way for paint get it bead blasted first will look a lot better..... i wish i had..

I think that looks really cool. I just have a few questions. What pump is that? Also what rads and fans are you using?

Oh, here is a pic of my current setup.
