Oh btw, this is me . gotten a mask from my work... damn goby thanks you for reminding me wearing that . Even after painting the whole case with the mask on i got a headache from the fumes (i'm so high, so high )
and when it comes to working with my hands, i'm such a little boy, even had paint on my face
HA glad you wore the mask.....sure beats blowing your nose and getting black boogers the rest of the night!

All loose parts (exept for the doors) i noticed that goby had left the LED lights and power/reset buttons in the 3.25" bay with a bit of help from my GF i could easelly remove them without a problem as you can see (the right bay on the case )
Yeah I , I just taped over them on the outside and on the inside I taped up all the wires. I new that it would be almost impossible to see all they way up in the bay where the wires conntect, so IMO wasnt wroth the trouble to take them out. Plus I got it all painted in there anyway. and on the outside where the leds are, the tape masked worked fine and the plastic cover covers it up anyway.


Nice job man! I see you even took off the chrome clip thingies that go around the door. Most people either forget about them, or dont take them off. Its just one of those little details that show if you do it correctly.

lookin' good so far

DAY 3, Part 2 ! (ALL PICS ARE CLICKALBLE !)


HDD bay with 120mm LED fan...


Now the case ! (ffs you are keeping this people waiting ) lol... Putting the foot stands on....


Putting the USB, FIREWIRE, audio and plastic top back on ! looking as new ! ( it is new smartass )


These are the metal clips pushing against your door.... The we're easy to remove (learned that from my Tt Tsunami) and putting them back ! sorry for the flash on the PIC you can't see it clearly


The plastic holders for the drive bays are back on (don't think i gonna put on the top one.... think it might break ( 1 already did but still works fine... ). Also the plastic holder for the removable hdd bay fan is back on the the speaker alarm ( see the red/black wire)


Putting the the rear parts back in.... looking good


Rear and top fans in.


Now this is a different story... i noticed that when i move the case the doors move (yeah that easely..) so i took some insolating tape ( the tape you using for wires) and put some on the blocks holding the door.....


Here you go...


Getting far now ! and looking better then i would imaging (i won't put any drives in until i get my new parts.... or looking for a solution to get them in without damaging the paint.


now does it look nice or what !





ok, no joke... dunno where these screws go and the plastic holder for wiring and these are not spare parts.... if anyone know please tell


----Before ------------------------------ After----



Final Result of the painting !

I've enjoyed this much and hope you do this too and get some ideas out of it Now i have to wait for 2 or 3 months before i can order my hardware until then.... stay tuned !

The plastic pieces attach on the inside of the mobo tray so your mobo doesnt touch any of the metal on the case. They just use those tape pads to stick on. I used mine. You dont see them anyway and its a nice safe guard

That black circle thing looks like the grommet that goes on the holes on the back. You have to pull the circle tabs out to use it. Its for external watercooling.

as for the other screws ...who knows!??

The plastic (as far as i can remember) went of something that was holding a cable (probably for preventing damage ).... but can't remember what i need to look for a half a moon like where it would fit

the black screw came of the top.... i guess the plastic top cover on the case....

if you like it or not, after a demolish and rebuild you always end up with extra parts

Well.. I would advise making the holes on the top plastic vent thing bigger.. Blocks a TON of airflow.. Need to do that with mine.. I will once I have a comp to use in the downtime..

Lookin good!

that wont be needed, the case temp wont be more then 22 degress and the front is gonna get a second 120mm fan so there would be enough air displacment

but maybe i will
post #18 of 132
Well.. If you are gona put the fan up there you should..

22? How do you know?

(And I think bigger holes would look better anyway..)

That little black thing is off the icage
It stops the wires of the fan rubbing against the cage in the corner
