I'm pretty pleased with how this is starting to come together!

SLI Bridge ready for some green!

The second card I bought came with two fins broken on the fan. I ordered a new fan for it but also decided that I wanted to paint the bracket green to match the rest of the VGA brackets. it was really bothering me lol.

And the card is apart. I figured it would be a lot easier to work on the vinyl if I took off the shell of it too, and give it a nice cleaning and fresh paste!

Let me know what you think! Any detail ideas that you think would add to the look of the case?

Looking good!

Suggestions are difficult since it already seems so balanced but I think you should get a nice glossy piece of black acrylic and mount your SSDs to it. Maybe even bend it so the SSDs are mounted on an angle facing up towards the window. (if that makes any sense lol). Would be pretty cool to showcase them like that and you'd just need a heatgun and a table to bend the stuff.

** EDIT **

Had some spare time so here's what I mean:

IMO it would look sick to paint your motherboard tray to match your green accents.

Man, I wish I would have thought of that earlier, it would suckkkk at this point to take that back off, but I do agree with you!

Thank you, I am happy with how it's turning out so far!

Small update-

I finally finished the sleeving, and have gotten the GPU brackets painted. I haven't found a place to make the stickers for me so I think I am just going to be blacking out the side of the cards for now. I did get the backplate in and I must say that it looks awesome! I am trying to debate if I want to paint the backplate with the same striping pattern that I have on everything else currently. Haven't fully decided on that yet.

Next thing to do is going to be getting the acrylic piece made to hold the SSD's and putting my cards back together after they have been painted. Other than that I am in the home stretch and really don't have a ton left to do!

Also, on a side note. I found a Sony N9000ES Amplifier in my dads basement and have hooked that up to my home theater system. It fits perfectly with my HTPC and sounds great as well!

Thanks for checking it out!

Matt

What green spray paint did you use? That is the exact color I am looking for! The green I bought is way too dark for my needs.
