Purposely painted the black a little too far so that I had a reference of how far to put the painters tape. Didn't want to have to perfectly follow the black line and end up putting a piece of tape over the edge and have some white show up when I took it all off.

I also decided that I'm going to paint the backside of the back panel red so you can see it in the inside of the case. The outside of the case has a nice balance of black, red, and white, but the inside is mostly just black and white. I think that red on the back panel showing on the inside of the case will really give some balance to it.

Looks like your getting right there I can what your dilemma is with GPU blocks is I was going to go with something like this.

I am seriously thinking about it and removing the HHD 240 rad to the back outside of my case it will fit and be parallel to the top of case.
Just I am having heat build up issues with those 2 bottom rads dumping too much heat inside my case.
then I would plumb res-pump-bottom rad-gpus-back rad-cpu-top rad. (May swap top and back rad in loop order)
That should minimize heat build up in the case as the bottom rad will be just removing heat after top rad and pump.

Any way REP for efforts so far

Hey thanks for your help man. I'm pretty sure I won't have a problem with heat being sucked into the case as I always try to keep my ambient really cool. I'm going to be doing something a tad different here by using my bottom rad, front rad, and rear rad as intakes and having the top rad be the only exhaust. My loop is going to be like this: pump>front 200mm>bottom 280mm>GPU's>rear 120mm>CPU>Top 360mm>res

Alright guys everything turned out well!!! The black didn't come off with the paint and besides from a couple little paint spots that somehow slipped through the tape it came out really good. Just have to rub some paint thinner on it to get those spots off. Piece of cake! Here it is biggrin.gif

and here are some pictures of the completed case. I'm pretty sure I'm done painting and now I can focus completely on the component aspect of this build!

Thanks a lot guys! I'm loving how this is turning out! Pretty good for my first build in 5 years! And my last build was a really crappy one with $400 in parts and absolutely no love. Wait until I start getting all of these rads and blocks in! THEN its going to really start looking awesome!!
