The front part turned out flawless but I wish i could say the same about the top. I accidentally held the paint can too close in one area which caused some nasty drip marks. doh.gif I proceeded to lightly sand off the bad part and repainted. Then I noticed that some of the paint bleed into the part that I already painted and some of the paint started to chip off. I have decided to start fresh and strip all the green paint off and start fresh. I hope to get the top part done this weekend.
I did some cable management but soon after that, I noticed that the quick fix I made to my Phobya PWM splitters which were causing the fan connectors to slip out was not cutting it. 2 of my push fans were not running today and soon noticed that the splitters were to blame since I don't have the top part on my case yet, they were easy to get at. The push fans are running fine now but, I am going to be replacing those which I will have to drain my loop that I just put together and pull the rad out to get at them mad.gif
I still have to come up with a fix of a couple of my push fans hitting something on the top of the case which causes them to grind when ever I turn them up past 50%
Anyways, here's some pics of my rig in it's current state. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I think these boxes always arrive all beat to heck. NZXT does a pretty good job of packing, but even they can't counter boxes getting thrown and dropped.

Nice build! Usually green ends up looking tacky, but i'd say you pulled it off.

How much more is the gun metal over the black?

Any other differences other than color?

I'm such a n00b LOL. I didn't realize that the NZXT Hue has different intensity settings. I had it on the lower settings the past couple days but now I got it on full blast and WOW it's awesome. I can see everything inside very clearly even though it is daytime now. biggrin.gif

NZXT Hue is an RGB LED controller. Check out this review video it shows it off really well.
