Thats kinda why I made this thread because I have no idea yet lol, hoping some of you guys would inspire me lol. Although the few thoughts I do have lingering are to create a chambered liquid cooling system, which means basically the RAD would be on the exterior but indented with the lines of the case while also providing ample air flow for the fans and topped off with a nice military air filter, also I was thinking since the lettering one the front is not coming off I figure im gonna put some type of window there, and finally I can reuse the waterproof industrial style fittings and en-chamber the ports that hold the power hook up, usb, etc... externally giving it that rugged military look while still functioning as a water proof solution while in transport..... thinking.gif

Maybe instead of plexiglass windows use a nice industrial looking mesh? With some good lighting in the case Im pretty sure it would look nice as you would get a glimpse of whats inside but still keep a sort of military generator look to it?

Yes it is! Looks almost brand new except for they always give things the dull look to soften light off of it.

And yea about the disclaimer(thanks for reading by the way lol) I defenately dont need to draw bad attention, especially when OPSEC is as high as it is now......
When I was in Germany I told them I need to be able to have a different hair cut because nobody in Germany wore the style. To practice OPSEC and all...they laughed and made me beat my face tongue.gif

1. USE AN MSI MOTHERBOARD!

4. Profit tongue.gif

MSI uses "military grade components" on their motherboards.
LOL!
I use MSI on my past two builds. When it boots up it says. MILITARY CLASS MAINBOARD. Pretty much just means it can withstand more punishment. Made from ceramic instead of plastic. Better chances it wont crap out on you is all. Still though, reminds me of soldiers! They can take a beating...I know from experience. thumb.gif

i think it would have looked good all beat up the way it was, gives that rugged feel on the outside but make it clean and perfetct on the inside
post #16 of 390
Is there any thing on the side panels that you can see through? Like a mesh or something.. i personally think it will look nice with a window or a mesh sort of idea.

Its so funny you say that because I have somting similar I have salvaged, they are those Florescent light covers that have a Opaque diamond pattern designed to spread light evenly, I have two big pieces! I guess the down side to using sumthing like that would be that you couldn't actually see in it. And I cannot use regular fabric or metal mesh because I still want it to be water tight, unless you mean use it to cover the plexi then I can do that!!
