holy crap...
i have never had so much trouble taking off a side panel in my life..

NOTE: when you plasti-dip a case, it will become harder to remove a side panel!

ALSO: when you plasti-dip the inside side of a side panel...it will become FREAKISHLY HARD to remove it from a case!!!




like this thing alot, the rheobus is great, on two of the switches/knobs i have 2 fans attached without any performance loss from the fan..

best to note that when you turn the knobs all the way to lowest power...the fan just stops moving rofl

in truth i also think that the fans are getting less power through the rheobus than how i had them powered before. I hear a whole lot less from my case now.. im sure this is partially because of the plasti-dip inside


had to redo the entire mass in the back, was very fun putting it all together again. this time i only used black zip ties


im totally in love with how clean i can make a case now :


close up of a crucial area...you can see that above the dvd drive i just stuffed some wires...no worries
tho i am sure that on the "post your cables" thread i will lose a point

how do you people manage those cables? i have hardest time wit my cables whether they are too short of i have to make cuts. Anyway very nice job i regret cutting my right side panel grill behind the mobo now my mobo is exposed. Paint your fan controller and cd/dvd drive half white lol.

i managed it with 70 holes drilled through the mobo tray, 50 zip ties, and about 3.5 hours to put it all together

went to sleep when i finally had the case finished..which was about 1:30am last night..it rocked

also....good idea with painting the fan controller and dvd drive...

it will look good, the two throw off the scheme but leave the knobs on the fan controller black and paint the other side white or just paint one side all white.

well put the tape on, take them out, paint em and stick em back there and take pics and nudes. The problem i am having is that i have to bundle up my cables sort of and when that happens it is hard to put the side panel panel correctly. I have to just cut off that bent part of the mobo tray near the drive bay area so i can put some cables flat on it and not disturb the side panel.
