You can buy the powder coat, but unless you have an electrostatic spray setup and a baking chamber you can't use it.

Yeah, I have a an electrostatic gun and oven at home, I've just never gotten around to using it. I should be getting the water cooling parts in today from performance-pcs. I'm waiting for a good deal on the case though, because it looks like the CM Store has a refurbished version for $70 but they're out of stock right now.

Performance PC's order came in. Here's a few pictures of the bigger things I got.

Depending on if, or when, I get a Haswell CPU and mobo I may have to get a USB 3.0 header to USB 2.0 header adapter if I want to use the front usb on the case with my current mobo.

I may also get a universal waterblock for my 6970, depending on how well the rad deals with my current 200w CPU and how well I think it'll do with another 250w added to it from the gpu.

I ordered the case today using the V.me 10% coupon from Newegg and CM's $10 off rebate. I will probably start getting the side panels ready for dual 120mm fans and "prepare" (i.e. break of some tabs) the front panel for the 140mm fans.

I cut out the area for the side 120mm fans. I'm looking for some mesh to cover the cut-out; probably something with honeycomb shaped holes to match the rest of the fan grills on the case.

By flattening out the punched out holes on the top mesh and then drilling new holes I was able to fit a 230mm fan on top.





And by drilling new holes into the bottom of the case, I was able to mount the 3.5" HDD bay from my NZXT Vulcan.

I'm going for an orange and blue theme for my case. I hope to be powder coating the main, metal, part of the case blue in a few weeks.
