We've been working with the powder manufacturer about the small differences in texture that sometimes occurs. I'm reluctant to change it because overall, it looks pretty good and it's very durable. The one downside to any powder is that you don't have the degree of control that you have with wet paint because powder is electrostaticly applied. Part edges and recesses affect the field, so it can be very difficult to control the exact thickness at those points. With any texture finish, a change in thickness can cause a change in texture. We've actually achieved a more consistent finish than other powdercoaters in the area have achieved, so the manufacturer has had their people come over and see what we're doing. Overall though, I'm pretty happy with the result.
Yeah I noticed it is very durable. To me that is more important then a flawless finish. I have barely any experience when it comes to powdercoating expect for car wheels, which cost a lot more then this case itself and I noticed they use clearcoating on them so that probably helps hide the flaws.

Here's a small update of stuff I bought. I got 16 new Gentle Typhoons AP14s that are replacing my AP15s. New bitspower fittings. I also bought new ram. G.Skill 8Gb 1600Mhz 8-8-8.

Here it is in the current form. I'll be upgrading my PSU to either the gold or platinum Seasonic in the near future and then I'll really start my cable management smile.gif My favorite part of my current loop is that I am using less then 2 feet total of tubing.

FYI the corsair gold series psu's are on sale on amazon - ax1200 is only 244 right now which is the lowest it's been in a long time.

Thanks for the heads up! I am actually looking at going with a 800-900 Watt PSU since my back up battery is only capable of 900ish watts.

Oh, by the way I got a new esc keycap! Kinda the wrong holiday but still cool tongue.gif

Thanks, I'm basically done with the whole case setup but will continue upgrade my hardware (CPU, GPU). I'm actually waiting on the Merlin line now or the Murderbox.

I went with the 6970 crossfire setup since it can be used on a 750 watt PSU with some headroom while a GTX 580 SLI setup would be cutting it close. The max I can go is 800-900ish watts since I use a back up battery and I can't afford going the 1000k watt UPS & PSU route. I also got a really good deal on my 6970s, but i'm actually letting my brother borrow my other one.

New video card. It seems like I will only be needing a single 7970. It seems to handle BF3, SC2 and every other game I play very well on 2560x1440.
