[Build Log] Armor Revo Spartan Edition

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
So this is my very first build and obviously my very first modding venture. This time around I am just keeping it simple so that I get a feel for what I want to do on my next build.


*

first I got the side panel painted with my IGN and favorite champ at the time



*
*

then i started to paint the bay clips and trays. The blue parts on the clips have since been painted white also and i fixed the bottom tray. i am just to lazy to take a pic at the moment



*

Bought a new cooler


*
*


painted the top of the cooler and replaced the oem fan with a clear one that has blue led

*

painted the expansion slot covers

*

decided to paint the video card to match

*

painted my IGN on the optic drive

*

installed some cold cathodes

*

got some Spectre Pro fans installed




bought a RM 850 and some sleeved wiring.




As I write this I am working on getting the psu painted so i can get it installed and clean up my major wiring issue..

I have soooo many ideas i want to do to this case/build so I am sure there will be updates coming.

thanks for looking..please be nice..its my first build

so i hooked it all up and turned it on..worked fine for a few seconds and then the video started cutting out..i was so scared..turns out my daughter had the hdmi cord in her mouth at some point while i had the pc disconnected..i gave the connections a cleaning with an alcohol swab and it works great now! keep an eye on your kids when you are doing work on your pc!

when i installed a new spectre pro fan on my side paned i had to remove the pins that held on the mesh filter. i was using tape for a while to hold it in place but i found some magnets and i painted them white and used them to hold it in place...works and looks pretty good if i may say so
