Any objection to getting the case powder coated? I'd REALLY appreciate feedback guys!

powder coating is cool because of the colors you can do and it's relative cost

it does add thickness more so then paint even though so you have to be careful with hardware threads and the mesh.

The real cool thing to do would be to annodize since it's aluminum, but that gets spendy tongue.gif

I don't think you are going to be happy with it black.
Lots of holes in that front.
Gonna get dustier than the intake on an Antec 900.
I vote for sticking with silver
post #124 of 1248
The front should stay silver for sure smile.gif!

I've seen an anodized blue powermac g5 and it just doesn't look right. What color will you be using?

Can you get it anodized a glossy black?

I was going to stick filters on my fans, would dust still collect in the holes? I noticed that dust collected in the lower back by the PSU.

That sounds interesting but I'm not sure who nice it would look though.... maybe if it was a darker gray or something.

Good suggestion though!

Not TOTALLY like a Mac haha. It's basically going to look like the Muderbox but in a PowerMac G5 case.

I've seen that one too, not that great looking. I was planning to use a glossy blackc not super glossy but enough to get some reflections in it.

Thanks for the comments guys! I like getting other peoples perspective on these things!

you could certainly get a glossy black, in fact if the person is talented and experienced you can get multi-color fades or different color designs although I believe the smoothness of the finish would probably dictate how reflective it would be....check out high end paintball guns for some of the possibilities thumb.gif

Matte > Glossy when it comes to a computer case IMO. Especially with the interior.

Interior, yes, it should probably be matte but exterior, I disagree, it should have some shine to it. Thanks for your suggestion though! They're all appreciated!

I'm contacted a business local to me that does anodizing and I'm going to see if I can get a piece of the mesh from the case (a piece cut from the back where the new back panel went) both powder coated black, and a separate piece anodized black and see which one I like better. I'll post pictures of both when I get it done!
