Hey guys, well for a while now I have been in need of a major overhaul on my rig. Now I have to mod the case, its a Cooler Master Centurion 534, with a side window. My plan is to cut the holes in the bottom for my rad, and covering the entire thing with a Carbon Fiber film, from mnpctech, which is a great store. And on top of the case I gunna put some recessed spring loaded handles. For the inside I am thinking about using one of those textured paints as a base coat, and then using a chrome paint over that. I think it should look pretty cool. So far I have just done the break down, and I've taped the top and bottom, and I have drilled the 8 holes for my rad screws.

As an FYI I'm gunna use a MCR QP-220 an AX MP-05 Xtreme, a MP-1 for my X800, and a DDC-2 with Petra's top. And my fans are the Yate Loons D12S.

And I will upload some pics tomorrow, the digital cam was out of batteries today. Any feed back would be welcome.

Hey Guys well here are some pictures of what I did today. Pretty much I just got the handles on, cut the blow holes for my rad, and put the Carbon Fiber film on(which was a pain). As you can see in the Pic of the top with the Carbon Fiber film, there are some bumps. I am working on getting them out, at most angles you can't see them, so I'm not to worried about them.

Applying carbon fiber is really hard, you have to be patient and do it really slow. Spray lots of water dishsoup mix on the surface and on the c.fiber.
Use a small squeegee to get the air bubles out.
The key point is, u do not put the carbon fiber on the surface at once. Start with one corner and proceed without leaving any bubles behind. And use a hairdrier to dry it out.

Good job so far !

Well I've hit a bit of a wall, now my new computer won't send the graphics to the monitor. So I am going to take a break until I can figure this out.

Hey guys sorry for the wait. After the problem with the motherboard, I had to wait for a few watecooling parts, but now I have them. I think I found a place for my pump that most people don't use. I was looking in the case and I couldn't find a place that would work on the bottom of the case, so I started looking on the sides. Then I thought I'm not using the rear fan so why not mount it there. So here are some pics, everything for the WC is in, and I am leak testing right now. I do have to switch out the graphics card, right now I have a FX 5700 in there, and I need to put my X800 GTO in.
