Industrial military themed pc

post #1 of 34
Thread Starter 
Im going for a sort of industrial/military themed pc. Its going to be a corsair C70 (either green or black, feel free to chime in with your opinion on color).
im going to sleeve and custom cut every cable to length and sleeve them in black with some grey. the plan is to have a h100 in the top.
removing all HDD cages and put every HDD in the 5.25" bays. which will then have a huge bundle of cables running out of it. dual SLI 680's.
And custom painted corsair fans with fan filters.
Also replacing the stock window with clear acrylic.

any suggestions on giving it a more robust look?

paint ideas?

Paint ideas? Matte Olive Drab.

Everything else looks good. I like the idea.

so i should just stick with the green C70 case? because thats the color it comes in. They actually did a fantastic job on the paint job. I didnt think it would be so......perfect.

imo, the olive drab has been done too many times. If you like it then by all means go for it. But when i visit LAN events I see that alot. What I don't see is custom camo paint jobs you see on SF guns. One good reference would be if you ever saw the movie Hackers, when he paints his laptop that custom camo it looks sick. Go for something original. Not many people can have the same exact camo you have with all the different possibilities.

Might wanna put some custom weathering effects on the corners like wear and scratches too. Lots of youtube instructional videos on this.

Its your project, hope my thoughts help you decide where your going with it. I look forward to seeing it.

I am all about Military Switch Baybuses. But the case wouldn't look right with it IMHO. Are you thinking of doing a paint job like this PC Case? Or like a Winter Military look....

Digi "desert" camo maybe?

What I'd love to see is a PC with a "cage" around it, in desert combat theme. Obviously it would need to be able to open at front for optical discs, and would need to be connected to the case with just a few screws to be maintainable.

What I mean by "cage":

British Army Jackal:

Maybe I will give it a go some day, although I bet it turns into quite a complex project.
