I'm going to use a 3x120 and a 1x120. I might skip the welding tho, depending on how clean I can make it. I have a feeling that cheap ass aluminum would stat warping bad.
TBD..

Hmmm, did you think of maybe hitting the cable covers with some black paint? It might make them more appealing to you, as well as make the orange pop a lot more when the loop is filled.

Also, you should put a mini spot light on the reservoir and mobo if there will be a window in the case. Kinda like people have aiming at flag poles and such. If you don't think that's too tacky.

Why not put an LED in the reservoir so it makes the liquid glow O_O
post #198 of 477
I like your case. Looks amazing. I wish I could have gotten in on this deal at BB to get that case. I did on the other hand get 4 of the Dynex Midtower cases with 500w PSU for $20 a piece and they have another one on sale right now with a window for $30 with a 500w PSU and I got one of those just to see if it sells good or not. But if I had this case, I would definitely ask for your advice in modding. Great job.

Yea, it's so thin that it would need to be reshaped after. I just don't feel like dealing with that.

I would love to make it black. Tho I'm not going to paint it, so it would have to be powder coating. This would mean even more down time.

I didn't do any lighting of any kind as of yet. Tho rest assured that it will be lit up. Not bright by any means as that is not my thing, but it should come out ok.

I have some holes drilled just for that. I just have to install some. Not sure if I should go with UV or white.. Maybe both just in case I change coolant colors one day.

Thanks man

I must admit 4 cases with PSU's for $80 is a good deal.



On another note, I got some parts today.. The 480 GTX, one extra Kaze, and the 1x120 radgrill. I should have the radiator wrapped up tomorrow if all goes well. Expect a decent sized update
