Jingway series (aka EK, OCZ hydro, DD, etc.). Looks like he's using Xigmatek orange blade fans with white leds.







I talked to my buddy who's a gear head. He's got a blasting box that I can use and I'm looking into a body shop painting my case or powder coating it. The only problem I have with powder coating is that its a bit thick and reassembly of the case can be a pita and damage/scratch the finish I can always leave the case whole but I would like to make sure its totally coated.

Welcome!

I switched to air cooling, so it can be done with the Elysium:

Anyone have thoughts on a window mod? Where to get a piece that is 21" x 19 1/2 " ? Or Large enough to cut down myself? Smoked Acrylic Maybe ?? With this Cut..

check to see if you have any local plastics company. ebay has some sellers that can send you pieces. 1/8" is pretty good and about what the stock acylic window is. I'm lucky i have e-plastics about 10 minutes away. I can buy scrap acrylic for a few bucks smile.gif

That is fortunate for ya... I will have to start looking .. IT's definitely going to online purchase.. which makes things a little more difficult without being able to see the material..

Either way, I would steer clear of "modding" acrylic or any that's aimed at computer usage because it's way overpriced. Clear plexi can be found in any hardware store I think. I know there's a difference between plexi and acrylic but CBA to google it now ^^ .

On a side-note, really liking your build Hanover. The white lightning is amazing.
