My CLC Temple! biggrin.gif

Background
I've never really cared much for looks in the past... and even now, will sacrifice looks for performance (when it comes down to budget). That being said, the interior of my case looked like a rainbow parade circus (nothing wrong w/that... just not a good scene for my case!). I was lucky to have a few Newegg and Amazon gift cards (yay presents)... and with the exception of some case fans and a couple monitors, almost every component listed was bought on sale smile.gif I had "kinda" started a red/black theme (with peripherals)... so I thought, "why not"

This has been a "piece together" over a few months , but I've always enjoyed taking pics (I'm not good at it... but sometimes I get lucky), and I'm about 90% done. Waiting on a couple of backplates and mounting bracket for my 7970s (thanks Dwood!!! - http://www.overclock.net/t/1237219/tript-cc-620-920-h50-h70-gpu-brackets-fan-grills-custom-case-badges). Some misc. cleanup/prettying up of some wires, etc... desk/office cables...

Nothing special here... this is just a good way to document my current gaming build (sig rig). My closed loop coolers were all half price specials... so it ended up being a pretty cheap solution! I'll try to document and cover as much as I can (including my custom built monitor stand, delidded 3770k, painted G710+ & F310)

Let's paint some stuff!

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

PSU was ugly as sin frown.gif Easy enough... pull the sticker... except:

Chinese quality check FTW!!! biggrin.gif

Let's sand it, tape it up and paint it flat black:


Painted over the THICK wax pen QC mark... and the silver rivets on top of PSU... now in my "ghetto dyer" (basement shower w/space heater and exhaust fan above):


+++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Time to paint the top 200mm case fan. I have both the all black and clear w/red LED CM MegaFlow fans.


I was using the red LED version... but decided to paint the all black to match the rest of the fans (can find a few guides here on OCN)

Drying:

(Sitting on top of 2 cigarette boxes)

Back together again:



+++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

The "orange ring" on the Logitech G710+ never made sense to me...


Inspired by this thread (http://www.overclock.net/t/1316586/logitech-g710-disassembly-and-modification-56k-warning) I painted mine red (more pics in thread).
Orange: Red:

Finished



+++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

So now... the Logitech F310 is "out-of-place" (it's blue and black)


Let's take it apart and paint it the same red as the keyboard


Sanded, Primed and Painted:


Reassembled:

Needed/wanted to clear up some desk space... but monitor stands are crazy expensive! So... off to Home Depot to buy some piping & clamps and build my own! Found some cheap ($4.99) vesa mounts on buy.com. Lots of good guides around... it turned out pretty well!

Dog hair FTW!



Love my CM Storm QuickFire Rapid (but giving my G710 a fair chance) smile.gif

We'll clean up the wiring later!

Angled down... good viewing angle!

The "old glow"

Waiting on the last couple of "little" parts... in the mean-time...

Monitor Stand (base)


Radiator/push/pull fans mounted inside case with my Z77 Extreme4 (old)


Radiator/pull fan mounted on outside of case with Z77 Fatal1ty (new)


Basic bare aluminum bracket from (DWood) mounted on my 7970 (waiting for 2 black backplates and may paint brackets black as well).


Have some thermal adhesive as well as 24 aluminum RAM heatsinks that will go on the 7970s as well
Processed By eBay with ImageMagick, R1.1.1.M2a

+++++++++++++++++++++++++
+++++++++++++++++++++++++

Also ordered some 1.5" stickers (circles) that will be used for case fans biggrin.gif will also probably paint over the Thermaltake logo on pump housing and use there as well
