CM Corsair Scout White

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
So i've got this system:

CASE:CM Scout
CPU:Core i7 2600K
MB:Asrock Fatal1ty
DDR3: Corsair Dominator GT 2133
VC:HIS Radeon 6950
PSU: Cougar cmx1200
Watercool: Larcooler.

As I know CM Scout is not modded to death, so I', planning to change it.
I can't make a 3d picture of a mode - it's only in my head.

1. change CDrom to the slim

2. Paint Case to the white paint. Here's the second problem - i'll paint all the case, but i've got plastic handles on top wich I use quite frequently. So plastic is a soft material - will any paint hold such surface wich deformate? or should I forget about holders as it's painted?

3. waterCOOL

4. minor color & light changes, total sleeving, ram waterblock and so on.

Paint never stays on things that are in frequent contact with your hands. You can try some Krylon Acrylic Plastic Paint but dont expect it to be wonderful. How about leaving the handles black?

I like to overcolck system to its maximum. Also this Cougar is not very expensive, and very quality.

Especially what you did with the powersupply, digging the carbon look!
Cougar products for the win!
