Operation Freedom - May's Mod of the Month - Thank you Overclock.net - Page 6

This looks really cool, I'm impressed with how the paint has turned out. Do you use a gun and compressor or just cans for all of the painting? I'd really like to paint my case build, but wouldn't really know where to start. Good job, I'm subbed thumb.gif

I was going to have it professionally sprayed. But I decided to test spray on my extra side panel and I was surprised with the quality that came out. It being a flat paint is the reason I think it came out well. I've prepped and sanded between every coat to make sure there is no bad spots. It really comes alive however when I lay the flat clear coat over it as it goes from a washed out look to a vivid look while still being flat.

Now if this would of been a glossy paint job, I most likely would of gotten a fancy spray gun and compressor. One of my buddies would come over to spray it.

I'm am more then happy with the qualtity as I would rate it a 9 of 10. There is a few bad spots but those are mainly under panels where you can't see them. Other then that I've worked real hard to make sure I can get it close to perfect.

I wish I would of paid someone as i've probaly spent just as much money on paint and prep supplies. Lol what can you do though. I'm happy regardless though.

I appreciate the compliment, it's been fun and challenging at the same time. I'm learning as I go.

Um, IDK if you've ever had military experiance, (like making your own Bullets in Sniper School) but ONLY IF YOU HAVE, then you will ahve the special tools needed to take apart the bullets. From there, completely empty out the powder out of the casing, then but the blast caps ina a fire and they will discharge, (very Loudly, if you live in the city dont do this). then clean the bullets with Mothers Aluminum/Mag Pollish and put the Round back in the casing. That is the ONLY safe way to put ammo in something hot. Otherwise, Please don't cause it is very dangerous. I'm only telling you to do this for your safety as well as your families safety.

 

Like I said, if you don't have special training in making ammo, DO NOT DO THIS, just remove the ammo from the case, even though I do aggree it would look cool.

I was having the same thoughts, however I think its looking awesome so far!
post #56 of 257

oh it looks awesome, but those bullets, I would worry. Personally, I've seen what expended rounds will do in a fire, those blast caps do not burn everything when fired. I would worry contantly with those in my computer.

Well I am not to concerned at the moment as where I'm using the Ammo is gonna probably be one of the last things I do. I am gonna get someone experienced to empty the shells. I do appreciate the concerns of everyone, It will just be shell housings in the finished case.

for what it worth, I've been reloading ammo for about 7 years, just shoot me a pm with your address and I'll make you up some dummy rounds, ie no powder and primers. I can get you some 308, 223, 300 win, 30-60, etc..

Also again for what it worth, your computer will never get hot enough for the rounds to go off, the only way they will if your rounds on top fall off and the hit the rounds below, ie if the bullets or anything get their primers ruptured. most 223 rounds have a harder primer installed as the 223 has a free floating firing pin in it, so it's really not that much of a concern. if you have match ammo that your using ,then typically a match primer / softer one is used . = more concern..

this is all of the stuff it takes to reload one caliper, this is some 300 win mag I loaded up for a 1000 yard match I had

IMG_9447.jpg

Here's my typically reloading pile, with two kids, I do this about every 3 months.

either way.. Looking GOOD!... thumb.gif

My thoughts were more of, say the fluke incident happens, (Like the old Geforce 9600GTX's) and a fire breaks out in the computer, it would turn a mild fire into a Lethal weapon. I know they don't usually have problems like that, but I tend to error on the side of caution.

tdc that's freaking cool. I appreciate your help as i'm about to PM you.

As I've said before thank you all for the concerns. I will be using empty bullets in the build.

I took yesterday off from working on the Phantom. I usually take every money night to myself and watch some WWE Raw. It's one of my guilty pleasures

Tonight I am going to finaly do a test run on the waterloop. and finish cable management that I put off to do some exterior pieces.

I'm contacting a member on here about another piece of plexi as i'm considering having the window etched, if so I am gonna change the design up a bit.
