Wait, what if I bought an ammo can and put the PSU in it? Like obviously I'd have to void the warranty, but its an AX1200, if it dies, I'm probably the one who screwed it up.

Oh ebayyyy! biggrin.gif (Or if someone has one, PM me please and thank you)

Spent casings aren't hard to get since my dad owns a couple rifles. The issue is going to be incorporated those into the inside of the case.
As for the Apache fans, do you suggest the all blacks, or the camo ones? I'm trying to debate whether the brown would look okay coupled with the black radiators, however I'm having trouble actually visualizing it in my head. It would be a real b****, but I may have to paint the radiators to a flat black as well.
Wow this is actually new news to me. Wish I would've known this sooner! Alright well thanks a bunch, I guess I'll reroute the Norprene tubing as well! =)

The military themed camo Apace fans might give the some contrast - earthy brown/military green blades. Powdercoat/paint the interior like a flat black after a complete disassemble?... Basically, you'll have to do a more modern military theme due to the digital camo that you used.

Maybe you could add some handles? Just walk into an Army surplus store and see what you can integrate.

It'll get painted.


I would powder coat, but I have no idea how to even begin to get the sound dampening off of the inside.

I've been browsing military surplus stores for ideas. I don't think there's a very nice store around my area but I'll have to do some google searches. For the front, I was thinking something with handles but I have no idea how to integrate one since space is tight.

EDIT: Alright I've gotten down to business doing a lot of ordering and research, however I'm still stuck. I have no idea what to do for a front panel. It's not enough to just do one solid piece of mesh, but I have no idea what to do specifically. Any ideas?

Also, I've been researching how to paint the inside of the case. I'm thinking that black would fit better than OD green. What do you guys think about Plasti-Dip?

That's not a bad idea, but where?
post #39 of 59
Drape it over the pc desk and monitor give it the coverage of camo over the entire place. OH OH idea too. camo paint the monitor keyboard if not an expensive one and mouse. And grab one of thous old army folding field desks. That make a sick theme.

Haha that's a great idea, but my main priority is finishing the actual case first. I'm trying to come up with ideas for the front panel while I'm waiting for the sleeving to arrive from Germany.
