I have been avoiding sanding so i decided t paint the PCIe covers on the back of the motherboard. Not reall exciting i know but it all adds to the final product. I also drilled three holes in them for ventalation. Every bit helps i recon :biggrin:

Primer.


Finished:



Enjoy!

I got some wire loom today. I think i will get some more as it was alot cheaper than i thought. I got 2m of the medium tubing and 1m of the small tubing and it all came to $5.40. I think it will look nice and industrial like in the case.

Have you got any molding yet?
I got some of Gammods and it cleans up the fan holes nicely, as well as taking the edge off them. You only need molding if you're using the chrome grills though as they're raised above the cut.
Here it is, I bought 8m off the stuff ans used 80cm so far. (A 120mm cut is 12*Pi ~37.7cm)

That little adapter cost $54! but its all top notch stuff. The sanding thingo for the drill will be handy when cleaning up the hole.

yea man hole-saws are ridiculous-expensive. Although I felt like 18 bucks for my 80mm hole-saw was crazy (and it included the Arbor...the adapter you speak of is an Arbor)...but 94 bucks for a sanding bit, an Arbor, and hole-saw is piracy!

i spent that much for my hole-saw...a bunch of dremel bits and a brand new dremel.

geez louiz it better have spinnaz' on it!

nice case btw
