This list will probably change fairly often.....

Specs are not the greatest...

Intel i5-3550
Gigabyte HD 7850 2GB OC version
ASRock H77 Pro4/MVP Motherboard.
8GB Kingston HyperX RAM @1600MHz
OCZ Agility 3 120GB SSD
WD Blue 1TB
Antec 550W power supply.

Im disappointed that I didn't get a 3570K and a Z77 motherboard for overclocking, but I didn't have the budget at the time.

Good work on the stealth optical drive. My fav thing about this case is the easily removable meshes which you can paint too.

UPDATE 22/4/13

Over the past couple of days, ive started the painting, only to start finding problems: The blue I picked was way too dark, and just looked black on the mesh.

Ive also painted the PCI brackets, as well as the I/O shield for the motherboard, these have turned out really nice:






I have also removed the "I/O Surround plate" (for lack of a better name) ready for painting, with the new choice of lighter blue...



I hate drilling out rivets....


My current set up while my case is in pieces:

Black brackets installed in expansion cards:


Masking in the optical drive:




Painted my own rivets:


The final product:




Back panel lights:

Nice mod so far thumb.gif
Are you thinking of painting the case badge at all or leaving it silver? Also if you are going to paint your mobo tray, will you be doing it the same blue as the strips? or a different accent color?
