How and what did you use to paint the motherboard ? I really like this build. I'm into the shiny fittings. Everyone is doing black anymore IMO I like the shine

It was the biggest pain in the butt. First I "tried" to tape everything off, but that was very difficult. Trying to get tape to stick was difficult not to mention all the caps etc next to the slots were almost impossible to get around.

I used a thin cardboard to keep the inside of the slots from being painted. After that it was as simple as spray painting all the orange bits black.

Even with being as careful as I could be I could not get good coverage over all the plastic bits. After all the tape was taken off there were still small areas exposed. I then used a small paint brush and hobby paint to get all the small bits I couldn't spray paint.

This is the only picture I have of the process.


Welcome aboard. thumb.gif

I was just googling watercooled cases for inspiration for my upcoming build and found this, and I just had to sign up and say that so far your craftsmanship has been absolutely fantastic.

I can't wait to see the finished product!!

Thank you for the kind words. biggrin.gif Alot of small detail work coming up so stick around. thumb.gif




On a sadder note, the loop was filled and emptied after about 5 minutes. It appears as I have a bad rotary fitting. Going to see if I can get a replacement this week and try a leak test again.

Still working on this build, been a busy past couple of weeks ugh. Anyway I did manage to mod one of the last internal watercooling pieces I do believe. tongue.gif I always liked the frozenq specialty reservoirs and even thought about purchasing one of those red harbinger reservoir covers. The harbinger reservoir covers I thought were seriously over priced though.

So in the end I continued a theme from the water blocks to the res/pump combo. biggrin.gif I think it turned out pretty well:






Heres a little peak at how it was taped off:



Theres no vinyl cutter here. Just some tape, some measuring, and some handy work. lol

I hope to start doing more, but with the holidays coming up fast I doubt I'll be able to do any major work for a couple of weeks. And I wanted to finish this before Christmas lol. tongue.gif
Make it 3! The cpu block looks outstanding and I also really like the minimalistic look of the black cpu thumb screws. Great job man! cheers.gif

You've come a long way with this build since I had last checked in. Amazing work!! drool.gif

I'm hoping that I can keep going with the small details, and in the end bring it all together.

So, I drove out to performance-pcs and exchanged my bad leaky fitt8ng for another. Put the tubing back together and am currently leak testing.

Too bad I'm gonna have to tear everything down to sleeve and custom wire everything though. Theres so many tight places for fittings it's not even funny. Lol


Took one picture of the loop filled, what tall think.



LOL, that will Not be the final color. I just used some mayhem uv blue and distilled to test loop. smile.gif
