[Finished][Work log] CM690II - Project ''Prime''

post #1 of 158
Thread Starter 
The Prime

Hello guys and girls on overclock.net!

Since I think my pc case looks a bit boring, I wanted to mod it. I did a few little mods before with my CM 690 II, but this is going to be a total make-over. After a long day of thinking about how and what I want the case to be, and I just couldn't get the right ideas, so when I got home I have gotten some ideas from this forum. Not much text, more progress in pictures. It's easier said then done, but let's (try to) remove this black powder-coating first! I don't really have a big list of things to add, altough i'll see what I can do.

Things I certainly want:
Window
2 compartiments
Sleek look

I'll probably start soon,

Greetings,

Warning: This build has had a break of around 20 months, plans have changed, and it will not be a watercooling build anymore. For the most recent build progress (after the break) go to page 6 (and further) of this thread, or click here.

But feel free to look through this whole thread wink.gif

Enjoy!

Regards,
Gerben Werkhoven

Progression !

I already painted the mesh before, it came out with only one damaged spot, so I think I did a pretty nice job with a can of paint.



Started by dismantling the outside, get off side-panels and the front and top.



Then I took apart the front and top panels by removing the mesh, and other goosh that was in/on it.















Wanted to do some sanding too, so I sanded both side-panels.







The result of light sanding, it's smooth but I can't get the powdercoat totally off there though...

Progression !

Two 320gig Barracuda drives, wich I run in RAID 0, and 4 cheap fans, wich 3 of em are painted.







Fan controller, and DVD Burner.







Runs fairly good, and pretty good temps too nerdsmiley.png



As you can see in this picture, my pc has gotten cut up earlier, and that is just to make it look better, although it doesn't actually doh.gif But I think I can fix that.



I also got some sheet metal today, wich is going to be used on pretty much all over the case.



Because a dremel is too mainstream.



Heres a side panel, wich is just quite a bit larger, than stock, so it will fill up the ugly holes everywhere happysmiley.gif
