A shot of the Drain Port and Valve. The clearance between the bottom of the valve and the top of my fan on my 120mm radiator is like a hairline. It is situated to not obstruct airflow.

One of the nice things about this case is that it uses Standard 5mm LED's for the Power and HDD activity areas

So, I replaced my POWER LED with the Aquaero RGB LED. I was going to use it in one of my reservoirs but it just threw the whole color scheme way off balance. Now the RGB LED actually glows, it has 3 second intervals from dim-bright, then another 3 second interval from bright-dim.
The color will change depending on the temperature of the water in the loop. Blue for "cool", Green for "warm" and Red for "W'E'RE ALL GONNA DIE!" I'm still playing with the settings

And here's a picture of my dog Kiba. This was almost two years ago when he was a baby puppy (3 months old) and I came home to find he shredded his bed. mad.gif But how could you be mad at him looking so cute? LOL

And, here's my Desktop finished. I have dual monitors so the image above is my secondary desktop, where I'm using Rainmeter with various skins and a custom desktop. The image below is my main desktop.

UPDATE:

Unfortunately my time is limited, so what I could do in a day is taking over a week. Not to mention the weather has been really windy and rainy which aren't ideal conditions to paint in. SO, let's get started with more stuff!

I removed the fan vents from the top panel, then measured the inside.

450

Next, I measured the mesh from an old case I had in the garage.

450

Cut to perfection!

450
450

So, then I sanded the mesh down, and applied a Primer/Adhesion promoter.
450

Now, I tested TWO gold paints. Both from Rustoleum. One using the standard Cap:
300

And one using this wide cap
200

Here's the results of Primer plus standard cap:
450

Here's the results of the wide cap:
450

What crap. So the standard cap it was going forward!

450

Then it was the mesh for the front panel:
450
450

And then removing the Handles from the Drive cage, drilling out the rivets, and painting the plate.

450
450
450
450
450

And now on to a single fan guard from an old case!
450


More soon!
