I had a guy ask me lately what rivets he needs to buy because he's planning on taking his rig apart to paint it. I had to tell him that I didn't know because I haven't removed any in mine. The inside of a HAF X already has a pretty good completed look. If anything, I might get some stuff powder coated if I can find a place to do it locally for the right price. That's really the only way to go as it really gets hard and won't chip away like some other cheaper paints. Is there some spray paints with similar qualities? What I mean is that is there a brand of spray paint that won't chip away around screw holes when you have stuff screwed down or is that strictly a powder coat thing?

Oh and butterz, I was just giving you a hard time. I'll take some fresh pics of my dual HAF X's and submit them here. I'll just post links to the page instead of adding a ton of pics here and cluttering up the thread. That way I can use high res images.

I would think that it's not easy doing a paint job that's durable along with being decent looking. I'm ok with small touch-ups, but wouldn't trust myself to doing an entire case
That's where powder-coating should really excel, in durability. I thought that only a paint shop could do a powder coat job though. But there may be some good durable paints in spray cans available.

You must get those HAF X shots posted. I need to see all the possibilities, as I am having a hard time deciding on a nomination for this month

About how much did you need?

Here is the link to an album that I made on photobucket just for this such an occasion. There are a total of 67 pictures and I can't ensure that some aren't fuzzy lol. But you should be able to get a mental 360 view of both of my cases by these images. So enjoy

CLICKY CLICKY THIS FOR PHOTO AWESOMENESS!!!!

Edit: @ceadderman, they sell a own splinter with a dummy cable to trick the motherboard. I'll see if I can find one and post it.

Actually I've figured out how to trick the MoBo. I'm leaving the 140 in place to help keep the Graphics card temps down. I'll run that to the PWM on my Controller which is connected to the MainBoard. Problem solved.

If anyone wants the 200s' that I won't be using(2 Black unsleeved, 2 Red LED sleeved in MDPC) I'll be starting a thread soon. I'm thinking all 4 shipped for $50 since nobody has given me any feedback on this. Or if you have my apologies since I haven't seen it. I'll probably throw in some fan screws as well since I won't be able to use them with the 360.

Oh, you guys with WC'ed 932s', is 4.5ft of tubing enough or am I gonna have to pick up a couple more feet or snag a bit of the clear DD tubing kit from my bro?



~Ceadder
1) Connect it to the CPU fan header if nothing else will be connected to it. Otherwise you get an annoying message upon boot up that no fan is connected there. Alternative, disable CPU fan in BIOS.

2) Better safe than sorry. You figured in a drain and all? Better to have a couple feet laying around just in case you decide to make a change or something later on.

Okay now that that's out of the way. I'm not sure about vpi on the BI Tres. The 480 low flow however has a minimal approach to vpi. 9 vanes per inch. So if the Koolance is 20vpi, it stands to reason that the BI Tres is about 20-24vpi. Either way I don't believe that the the Black Ice unit would pack many more vanes in there and restrict airflow when dust builds up. 20 is just fine for this build since I'm not going to be asking it to carry the load of a Graphics card as well. Just CPU and Full Coverage block. Graphics already has cooling and I can do without a block for that for the duration or until I can find a reasonably priced used Copper Base block.

I used 8ft of tubeing in my rig, which is avarage for a full loop, video cards and all, If your only doing your cpu 4.5 ft should be enough if your only using 1 rad

So... Has anyone checked out the pics I posted? I admit most of them aren't top quality pics. I don't have access to a DSLR camera just now but I have plans on buying one eventually to take pics of my kids. Please let me know what you think.

Re-did my cable management so all my cables laid flat and redid my lighting, I think it looks much better now

THC Butterz that looks nice, makes my want to paint my case

Can I get my new buildlog added to my name? thanks (and I was the first HAF X owner, not second!)

Assembly complete!



Now I need to find new PCI-E powercables to get that big bundle out of the way. It's blocking my view!
