Update 2013-07-12 Ok so i got me some new stuff.. More paint(oil based high glossy hobby paint as usual), cable management items & some velcro tape.
So. Take the case apart for starters.. Here iam removing the mesh from one of the plastic pieces
These little *****es that is holding the front panel in place(not) broke just by looking at them. I will use Glue to put this back on after im done anyway so don't care.
Ok! Done for now. I also removed the heatsinks of my Corsair Vengeance DDR3 kit. (this mod is still in beta phase. I do not recommend you to do this yet, since i don't know how stable this mod is) since painting heatsinks could isolate the heat back into the ram chips. Though i will be using 2 extra thin layers of oil based paint for this test.
Cable management can ALWAYS be improved!!! :-)
Decided to go nuts with the spray can on all the black details of the case and ddr3 heatsinks to match the rest of the build.
2 thin coat layers of paint. After that i left them outside under a roof to dry for 15hours. Since some of these stuff are going inside the case it is very important it is totally dry
Im really happy with the cleanyness of the ram heatsinks! Hope they still work...
Ok! using super glue to put the front panel cover back on.. Shouldn't break for the next 10 years.
Ok so i was looking around for the best industrial thermal double sided tape. Took me a while to find anyone that would even know what it was. Thank you http://www.stokvistapes.se/ for the free sample & really quick email response
Will check back with you guys to tell you if this is the best thing on the market today..
Applying double sided thermal tape on the memory (The same way as the stock thermal tape was applied)
Putting it all back together.
Ok! Now everything is back together. Time for some end result shots.
Here is the first photo without side panel

Will be checking back within the upcoming weeks with result of the ram mod. To see if i recommend it or not.
Next thing i will do is bend & melt a new acrylic PSU cover + another surprise.. Check back soon
