I say removable because I don't see myself engineering a retractable piece on the backside of the case, and I really don't want to risk damaging the case or the hanger when I move the behemoth around.
Of course, if I do go with this theme I will be putting "Armatus" in an appropriate style somewhere on the side.
Just initial ideas. Keep in mind this would be the first time I've modded a case, so I need to be rather careful so I don't do something I will later regret. Any thoughts?

A thought that comes to mind is using some Picatinny rails and finding something to mount which would serve your purpose and fit your theme very well. Another idea would be to find and mount to your side panel a retractable anchor point. when you are transporting it you can retract it, but it may fit the theme as well.

I hadn't thought of that before, galbrecht! Thanks for throwing that out there. I actually have some of them sitting around, granted they're from my airsoft guns.

Over Easter Break next week I'm going to be looking into figuring out some decaling methods, especially since I'll have access to my father's printer. *Sigh* Almost 26 and still leeching of my parents for stuff. I guess that's what happens when you in on an 8-year schooling track after spending 4 years prior, goofing around in college.... Anyone by chance know any quick links for this kind of thing?

After reading about the LED lighting I am also thinking about doing a little bit of Orange on the top of the case (inside the removable panel). I want to go for that light streak effect from BF3. But, as I have said things are only in the initial planning stages here. The unfortunate thing with my setup is that the right side (the innards side) is the side that faces my desk; though that does allow for more room to decal. meh...

I've also decided that I WILL be going with the H80 (maybe even the H100) afterall, now that I've been using this H60 for a few days (no major complaints, but it doesn't make as big a difference as I suppose I was expecting.. I figure I'll hang on to this, and once I've got the money, I'll put the new cooler on my CPU and the attach the H60 to my graphics card using bdr33733's method.



Oh, just so you guys know... Boomstick and Develguns: My Mass intentions for tomorrow's daily Mass will be for your mothers and families.

Search print decals on youtube and you'll come across a number of vids...

There are a couple online stores that sell decal paper for inkjets and lasers. Most likely, your local hobby shop will have a kit from Testor's. Generally, you'll need the special paper and sealer. Measure the area you need to decal, go into photoshop of similar to create your decal(s), print on the special paper, spray with the fixitive, cut to size, moisten and apply. That's the process in a nutshell. It's one modeling task I have yet to do, though I have all the supplies on hand.

Keep in mind you can't print white! There is white and clear decal paper though, so between the two, you should be able to get what you need done.

Sadly, my first priority is going to have to be replacing my motherboard. My P7P55D LE just bit the dust tonight. Actually Really depressing, because my money is all but dried up. Looks like I'm on my iPad only for a little while frown.gif

Except my CPU is the 1156 and I can't exactly afford a whole new upgrade.

Ugh, no sense keeping things from everyone lol since we're all troopers. So here goes...

Truth be told I am actually in seminary- I'm studying to become a Catholic priest. Hopefully that doesn't earn me some sort of bad rep, or make people think they have to be on their 'best behavior' now HA!

That's the reason I cannot work. I get a less than $200 a month and occasionally a generous donation from some groups around my diocese. That said, computer building is not exactly something I can afford. I wish the board had gone out last week before I dumped $40 into my new cooler (gift money). We'll see how things go, but it's not looking to good at the moment lol...

I do seem to have stabilized the computer in a sort of 'limp mode'. When I'm in Windows, it recognizes all 8GB of RAM but only can use 4 of it. Further, I get the BSOD and an infinite loop of rebooting when I try to OC anything over what seems to be 3.2GHz. I've looked to see if BIOS is an issue, but I've had the most recent up-to-date for some time now. I'm keeping my eyes open for an 1156 mobo for now with 4 DIMM slots and relatively similar (if not miraculously better) specs as my current one (were it actually working).

I don't mean to sound like a beggar, but if anyone sees one please let me know! I might go through gaming withdraw haha


On a related note, once I do get another mobo, I am going to have to find something fun to do with this one hehehehehe
