I've had bad experiences with spray painting in the past so I'm going to vinyl wrap my chassis. Something to consider too!

MLODY Fantastic work on Purple Core mate! I'm digging the attention to detail on this build. The monogram on the RAM sticks wow! I didn't even think of also adding the fan controllers underneath the gpu mount too! Finally the PSU cover with the name, and I'm here shopping around for a white Seasonic PSU but I think i'd rather spend the extra $100 the extra Riing rad fans. Love this build, saving it under "Ideas for my P5 Build". +REP+REP!thumb.gif

I do have to nitpick, just constructive tho ok! The rear cover thumbscrews, the middle ones are white while the ones in the corners are black. I would've just left them all in one color. The beautiful PSU cover I would have added LED's in to really show the name off! See nothing biggie lol. Again, great job on this build!

I've actually got some white and black marble vinyl wrap. I think I'm going that route too. I haven't done any painting, so I don't want to ruin this case. It's too nice to ruin.

The LED's will be added in this week to light up the logo, I`ll try and show the photos.

If you asked me wink.gif My aquaero 6 controller is in as special cute black plexi case where is mounted. Then I drill some additional holes and use 90 degree bracket to screw it to the GPU tray using existing holes smile.gif

I just used Velcro on the bottom pump mount plate, but that will change. If you look at Father Fuzzys pics a few pages back, he cut a hole in the case for a 3.5" dual HDD bay. I did the same thing last night for my fan controller, so it will be properly modded into the case now.

Anyone try mounting a similar fan bracket like this BUT in the back where the HDD cages are? Cooling the back of the mobo (fans facing the back of the mobo)? I'm really not sure if this will help the vram temps, I was just thinking outside the box, literally

My fan controller is now in a much nicer spot. It was a lot more work, but I like this MUCH better. Father Fuzzy, you are the man! Using the CaseLabs 5.25 / 3.5 bracket was a brilliant idea!
