You figure out a way to get that panel to fit our case, make me one too. Also glad to hear that DA:O is a good game. Quite a few people on my Xfire list have been playing it.

@ SPEEDemon, how are you painting the outside of the case? I want to paint over the letters HAF on the side with NHB, just for that extra personal touch, but I'm not sure how to get it to look just right. Glad to see you're so helpful already. 5 Rep in 6 posts, very impressive. Keep up that good work.

Modding that panel onto another one will be a lot of work, but not necessarily too much more to do two at the same time. PM me if you are serious about that.

As far as painting the outside of the case, use RUSTOLEUM SATIN BLACK for the base. It will match pretty much exactly to the rest of the case. Then just paint your letters over it with another color. If you do it right, you shouldn't need to paint the whole panel to start anyways. What I did was make my letters just a hair larger than what was there. Check out these pictures of how I did mine.

Painting letters onto the side panel:
  1. Wash the side panel with liquid dish soap. I've found that works best due to it's grease cutting ability.
  2. Dry it and your hands completely.
  3. Be sure you are working with freshly washed hands or wearing latex/vinyl gloves.
  4. Use some good tape to mask out your design or letters.
  5. Use something like the back of your fingernails to be sure the tape is adhered completely.
  6. Scuff up the metal surface you are going to paint with a painter's scuff/prep pad. The tape will stay fine as long as you don't go crazy. It doesn't take a ton of pressure.
  7. Use compressed air or a clean cotton rag to remove any dust from the surface prior to...
  8. Painting acording to the instrctions on the can. Usually a number of thin coats applied a few minutes apart.
  9. Remove the tape approximately 30 minutes to 1 hour after painting. Doing so will avoid any chance of the paint peeling away with the tape. While removing the tape, pull away from the painted edge of the tape. This will leave the best edges as possible.

*NOTE: RUSTOLEUM TEXTURED BLACK will match your plastic parts in color and texture perfectly.

**There is no need for primer unless you are painting over bare metal. The back side of these panels and the inside of the case comes primed from the factory. Even if you get down to bare metal in some spots while you are prepping the factory primed surface, you still don't need primer with Rustoleum paint.

Okay, so I got a little carried away with pictures. WTH... .. . Here's some more! I figure some of the new members of the thread can enjoy them.

Hmm Those ones came with my 790i Ultra SLI I think I got six with it. I have some red ones that came with my Striker Extreme that are 90* upwards as well.

I used flat black Krylon paint for the interior of my case. I wanted it as minimally reflective as possible. Still have a little bit of that left. I wonder how that would look on the side panel of the case. I'd get another panel, but then I would have to redo the interior paint job, and I just don't have enough paint to do that right. I wish I have another side panel to try it out on.

OK, before anyone says anything, I've extensively reviewed this thread, and I am very impressed with all of the custom jobs I've seen. However, I'm a family man with a kid who commutes 3 hours a day, so while I would like to custome paint my rig, "there's never enough hours in the day." Especially when I'd rather spend my free time playing games with my kid and watching movies with the missus than painting. So please, no wisecracking about how plain it looks, I already know that! I'm just thrilled with the function and proud to be a fellow owner! The other reason I wanted to post pics is I haven't seen many set-up's like mine with A) Cooler Master 4-in-3 units, B) tri-SLI set-up's, and C) the bottom hard drive rack removed. I don't have that many internal drives (I prefer to use an external eSATA hard drive dock), and I bought the Cooler Master 4-in-3 hard drive unit with cooling fan for my two internal drives (which I can add two more), so I removed the lower hard drive for maximum air flow from the front intake fan. That offers better cooling of the NB/SB (it's very difficult to keep a NB/SB cool with a tri-SLI set-up and 8GB of RAM). Attachment 129358Attachment 129359

Again, congrats on all of the awesome custom jobs. I wish I had more time to do so, but such is life!

Great looking case. Just a little heads up. If you go to your profile you can put your rig automatically into your sig, since OCN has a max of 8 lines per sig, and yours is over that right now. It's nice to have a painted case, but it is a fair bit of work. Hopefully one day you can find the time to get it finished.
